The split has come as a shock to many wrestling fans, especially as the pair had been pictured out together just days ago.
Since news of their split, John Cena has posted on Instagram with the caption, “Worst Day Ever”.
He also told fans, “We all have good and bad days. No-one is perfect, but if you happen to do something to make someone feel bad, TAKE ACCOUNTABILITY for your actions, APOLOGIZE, and ASK FORGIVENESS“.
Naturally, wrestling fans haven’t taken the news well.
