On Sunday, the wrestler, 41, took to Twitter to get real about seeing others doing well, which led many to believe he was talking about Nikki, 35, and Artem’s, 36, new relationship. Whether it’s a front or he’s really moved on, he handled the whole thing pretty maturely. “Being upset by the happiness of others seems like wasted time. We should all strive to be happy, and if someone else’s happiness is hurtful to you, look within, ask why, and hopefully you’ll not only find answers, but maybe find happiness yourself,” he wrote. Who knew John could give such sound advice?

Thankfully, based on that tweet, things don’t seem as awkward as we thought. In case you forgot, Artem and Nikki were partners on DWTS in 2017. The professional dancer was even expected to be a part of John and Nikki’s almost wedding!
We’re glad the former couple is finally in a better place. The Total Divas star and the Bumblebee actor were on-and-off for years. They got engaged in April, broke that off before getting back together one last time, then officially split over the Summer and haven’t looked back. Since then, Nikki has been pretty open about not being ready to date right after being in a 6-year relationship, but it looks time healed that wound, and obviously, her new beau plays a huge role, too.
A source recently told Life & Style that Nikki and Artem are enjoying getting to know each other. “They got together for dinner and the chemistry from the dance floor came right back. They hit it off. They’re taking it slow, but they’re really into each other.” We couldn’t be happier for them. We wish these two the best!
