Wedding bells won't be ringing today for Nikki Bella and John Cena. It seemed like the Total Divas star and her longtime love would never get married after John made it clear that he was not interested in tying the knot again after his divorce from his ex-wife, but John came around and eventually proposed to Nikki last April during Wrestlemania 33. But the couple split and called off their wedding just weeks before they were set to walk down the aisle during a destination wedding in Mexico, and Nikki took to Instagram to share a sad message just hours before what was supposed to be her wedding date, May 5.
"Chin up princess or the crown slips," read a text post that Nikki shared. The message seemed to be directed at herself, serving as a reminder to keep her head up amid what is sure to be a difficult day for her, and her fans flooded the comments with messages of encouragement.
"Thinking of you today, my fearless queen!! This day will pass. In the meantime, do whatever the f–k you want to do!!!!!" one fan wrote, while another fan commented, "Thinking of you today. Remember, Big [and] Carrie didn't get married the first time but they did get married the second and lived happily ever after."
While that fan is right and compared Nikki and John's relationship to the Sex and the City storyline, it's unclear if Nikki and John will get back together after their split. But Nikki's twin sister, and fellow Total Bellas star Brie Bella, did seemingly hint that she isn't ruling out a reconciliation between Nikki and John.
"I’m extremely spiritual, so if it’s meant to be, it’s meant to be," Brie told Us Weekly. "Their souls will come back and I think sometimes people can separate and come back or sometimes you separate and realize that life should be different. I always think when two people are good people, Nikki’s a great person and John’s a great person, you always want to see two people together. But other than that I think everyone just supports whatever decisions they make."
