While we've watched Nikki and John's relationship grow on "Total Divas," the brunette beauty says she was definitely met with some harsh criticism when they started dating."People thought I was such a gold digger," she says about her relationship with the pro-wrestler.
Nevertheless, Nikki says marriage is still very much on her mind and John is finally starting to budge. "I have to remind him when I get hit on, 'I got hit on because no one saw a ring.' The good thing is, he's more open to marriage now—kids, unfortunately, no." But the 32-year-old says it's all relative.
"When I envision having my life without John, it hurts more than having a life without kids." Even though it doesn't sound like kids are in her future, the WWE Divas Championship stunner says she's excited to make one helluva comeback in the ring -- and not even her recent neck injury and her resulting surgery will stop her.
The Wrestling Observer previously reported this week that Ryback has been in preliminary talks with Combate Americas MMA about a possible MMA debut.
It was speculated at the time that the talks would go nowhere because Combate Americas isn’t looking to give Ryback what he’s looking for which is a big payday.
Nikki Bella has been dating John Cena since back in 2012, which has led to many whispers that her relationship has given her a helping hand in her WWE career.
A two-time WWE Divas Champion, her second reign of 301 days is recognised as the longest in the belt's history, beating AJ Lee's previous 295-day record.
Long before Cena began dating Nikki Bella in 2012, he and James had an informal relationship that grew to be controversial as rumors swirled that James was transferred to a different show once the pair broke up.
