It looks like John Cena may have a new love interest after his highly publicized split with Nikki Bella. The WWE star sparked romance rumors when he was recently spotted holding hands with a mystery woman in Vancouver and fans have been eager to know who this lucky lady is. Now, it’s been revealed that his potential new flame is Shay Shariatzadeh. Learn all about her below!

She’s educated and has a successful career

Not only did she earn a bachelor’s degree from the University of British Columbia in Electrical and Electronics Engineering, but she also secured a job in Vancouver. Shay is a product manager at Avigilon, a Motorola Solutions Company. “I interviewed multiple Product Managers to figure out how they got into their role, and I followed their path,” she revealed in her bio featured on their website.


The woman she looks up to most is her mother

“The strongest and most hard working woman I know is my mother,” Shay said about the person who inspired her most. “The biggest lesson she taught me was to be independent and fight for the things I want in life. She is a surgeon who worked day and night so we could have a good life. While she was at the peak of her career, she gave it all up to move her family to Canada to give us a better future. She is the reason I fight to be the best version of myself, to be kind and to never give up.”

Her brother influenced her to pursue engineering

“I have always enjoyed math and physics,” she told Avigilon, where she started working in May 2015. “My brother studied engineering in school, and I remember one day he came home with a project and it was an autonomous car — and that was it! I decided to study Engineering.”

She has worked in retail over the years

Shay worked in the Vancouver area for over 10 years and has tried her hand at different jobs before diving into the engineering world. She was previously employed as a sales associate for Guess and La Vie En Rose, according to her Linkedin page.

Shay has been spotted out and about with the WWE star

“John and his new girlfriend have been out in the public multiple times,” Nina Safai, a Canadian blogger, told Life & Style. “I’ve seen them together four times now. It started on March 3, and I’ve been running into them once or twice a week since then. I first saw them at Thierry dessert shop — it seemed like their first or second date.” We’ll see what the future holds for these two!
