John Cena is not around Nikki Bella’s life anymore. Her reality television shows were getting a lot more viewers when he was around.
While speaking to Health Magazine, Nikki Bella revealed that John Cena didn’t accept a single paycheck while appearing on Total Bellas. She said “it was beautiful” because he was just there to support his love.
“The one thing I really regret about showcasing the breakup is that no one got to hear [John’s] voice, and it just seemed so one-sided. I felt like that wasn’t fair to him because he was on this journey with us from the beginning. What people don’t realize is that John never took one paycheck from Total Bellas. It was beautiful—he was fully there to support me. I’ll never forget his support and his love. That’s what made me sad—I don’t want to say it became the Nikki show, but in a way it did because you didn’t get to see John anymore.”
Now John Cena is elsewhere and getting paid handsomely for his work all around Hollywood. His name is going to continue appearing on the silver screen and television, but it’s nice to know that he can elect to do some things for free.
