Nikki Bella said she’s “avoiding” WrestleMania 35 on Sunday because the event is “still a bit sensitive” to the WWE star following her breakup with John Cena.
Bella told Us Weekly she’s skipping the WWE event on Sunday two years after Cena proposed to her on live television during WrestleMania 33. The former couple had been dating for five years before they got engaged, but announced they broke up a year later and days after attending WrestleMania 34 together.
“I never thought the man of my dreams was gonna ask me to marry him and he did,” Bella told Us Weekly while mentioning her 2017 proposal. “So it’s still a bit sensitive for me.”

Bella said she has seen Cena “a few times” since calling it quits. She and Cena briefly reconciled before breaking up again last July.
The “Total Divas” star has since moved on and confirmed she’s dating “Dancing with the Stars” pro Artem Chigvintsev, but stopped short of calling him her new boyfriend.
“Yeah, we’re dating,” she said. “There’s been a lot of speculation about us…but I’m still dating [other people]…We’re not engaged. We’re not married. We’re not boyfriend and girlfriend. We don’t say, ‘I love you.’ We make out. He’s a great kisser,” Bella told Us Weekly.

Bella also told People magazine she wasn’t trying to make their relationship “Instagram official” when she posted a photo of her kissing Chigvintsev’s cheek last month.
“I posted a photo of us because we’re dating and we’re having fun,” Bella said Saturday. “Then everyone went (and said) we were official.”
