John Cena opens up about Nikki Bella split

You can read our full recap from the interview at this link.

Hours after Cena's shocking revelation during his guest appearance on the "Today" show on Monday, Bella was asked by "Extra" to respond, and she admitted that she was completely caught off-guard by it. Above and below are videos of The Bella Twins being interviewed on the red carpet at Radio City Music Hall.

Clearly taken aback, Bella replied: "Wow, well, I'm speechless". "Um, yeah, that's insane".

WWE has released the following previews for the return episodes of Total Bellas. I love Nicole. I'm really trying to support her in her trying to find whatever it is she wants that made this fall apart in the first place, and in doing so, I'm also just trying to live. "He's freaking lucky to marry you and it bothers me that you're going to sacrifice all of it just 'cause you're grateful that John proposed to you", Brie snaps back at her sibling.

These comments go against his previous stance, where Cena claimed he did not want a family, and did not want to get married after the breakdown of his first marriage. The day I say my vows I want to say them once and I want to fully mean them.

"While this decision was a hard one, we continue to have a great deal of love and respect for one another", she wrote.

She later told The Blast Cena will "always be one of my best friends".

The WWE superstar took to Instagram and outlined her immediate plans. She also revealed that her own mental health was a factor in the breakup.

"You have made a lot of sacrifices".

At the end of the exchange, Nikki suggested she and her sister "agree to disagree", but Brie wouldn't stand for it.

Cena told hosts Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb over a glass of white wine that he and Bella, 34, still talk, even though it's "difficult" in their current state. "You don't want people to force things or have to change themselves so much. That's insane", she began, before adding that she just wants both herself and John to "live happily ever after" - whether that means together or separately.
