John Cena and Nikki Bella Announce Break-Up
In surprising news, John Cena and Nikki Bella have announced their breaks, just three weeks before they were due to get married. The couple, who have been together for six years, got engaged at last year’s WrestleMania 33, and have been the stars of the Total Diva’s spin-off, Total Bellas.
Bella broke the news to US weekly, saying ‘While the decision was a difficult one, we continue to have a great deal of love and respect for one another. We ask that you respect our privacy during this time in our lives.’
John Cena posted the following to his Twitter account this afternoon:
Hardship, loss, and humility are extremely difficult waters to navigate, but perseverance thru them builds a strength to withstand anything life throws your way.

Cena was last seen performing for the WWE at WrestleMania 34 where he was defeated in just over two minutes by The Undertaker, while Nikki Bella has only made one WWE appearance in the last 12 months, finishing as runner-up in the first-ever women’s Royal Rumble match.
ROH Master of the Craft Result
In a fairly quiet weekend for wrestling, ROH presented their Masters of the Craft event last night. The results were as follows:
Silas Young Defeated Cheeseburger
Sumie Sakai, Tenille Dashwood, and Deonna Purrazzo defeated Madison Rayne, Brandi Rhodes, and Jenny Rose.
Flip Gordon, The Young Bucks, and Adam Page defeated SoCal Uncensored and Shane Taylor
The Briscoes defeated Besties In The World
Jay Lethal defeated Jonathan Gresham
Matt Taven defeated Cody
Marty Scurll defeated Dalton Castle, Beer City Bruiser, and Punishment Martinez (Defy or Deny Match).
The show was an enjoyable watch, and the main event match and the match between Jay Lethal and Jonathan Grisham are definitely work checking out. In the main event, Marty Scurll pinned ROH champion Dalton Castle, securing a future shot for the belt later down the line. The two men met at last weekend’s ROH Supercard of Honor show, with Castle coming out on top of a solid match-up. You can find the event at Ring of Honor’s Honorclub service.
