Going strong! Despite the fact that John Cena and his new girlfriend, Shay Shariatzadeh, have yet to comment on their romance, the pair is hardly keeping things private. In fact, the WWE wrestler, 42, and successful product manager were recently spotted having back-to-back dates in San Diego over the weekend.
“They were sitting beside us at Tower23 enjoying the sunset on Saturday evening,” a witness told Life & Style of the pair’s outing on April 20. “They looked happy and peaceful and would occasionally touch each other’s legs. It was quite a romantic dinner!”
The following evening, on April 21, John and Shay were spotted again. This time, at Juniper & Ivy restaurant. “They both looked like they were having a great time and seemed happy, and were extremely polite to everyone who served them,” a witness exclusively told Life & Style. “They seemed like wonderful people.”
In addition to enjoying some red wine, the onlooker noted that John and Shay were dressed “very nicely.” Well, you know what they say … a couple that slays together, stays together.
“They were there for over two hours,” the restaurant goer said. A two-hour dinner, huh? Yep, that sounds like a new relationship, alright. We’re happy to see that John is finally moving on after his highly publicized split from fellow WWE powerhouse Nikki Bella.
As it happens, though, the Total Bellas star, 35, was less than pleased to hear that her ex-fiancé has found someone new. “This is actually kinda hard to talk about for me,” the brunette beauty began alongside her twin sister, Brie Bella, during the April 10 episode of their podcast, “The Bellas Podcast.”
“You all have seen John’s paparazzi pics. He was spotted with a new mystery woman,” she continued. “When I saw the headline, it was [texted] to me by a few people. my stomach went into knots. When I saw the photo, it was weird.” Shortly thereafter, the reality TV star went on to issue a bit of warning to Shay.
“I am very happy for him,” Nikki expressed. “As long as John is happy, I’m happy. But let me tell you, if she breaks his heart? Wow. I will rack attack her in a heartbeat. I’m still protective of that man.” Yikes. Here’s hoping Nikki never has to break out that rack attack.
