Later, the same year, he had started dating fellow WWE Superstar Nikki Bella. The two got engaged in 2017 after Cena publicly proposed to her in the ring at WrestleMania 33. However, they broke off their engagement a year later, a month before their wedding.
It was after a year, Cena reportedly started dating Shariatzadeh. She was born in Iran and is a Canadian citizen. She completed her education from British Columbia University on Electrical and Electronic Engineering, in 2013. Currently, she works in Vancouver, with a tech company, as a product manager.
The couple were first spotted together in 2018 during Cena's shoot in Vancouver for Playing with Fire. The two also walked the Red Carpet together during the movie premiere, in October last year.
However, Cena did not choose to officially disclose this relationship, unlike his previous two. "I have a goal for sharing certain things with everybody and keeping certain things for me,” Cena had reportedly quoted to Access some time back.
As for Cena's WWE career, he is a 16-time world champion, while he holds the record of winning the joint-most world championships, with Hall of Famer Ric Flair. He is currently on a part-time role for WWE, as he is mostly busy with his Hollywood commitments.
