John Cena reportedly refusing to go to Saudi Arabia

The WWE has faced a lot of scrutiny for proceeding as scheduled with its “Crown Jewel” event in Saudi Arabia in the wake of the mysterious death of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, and at least one superstar may be backing out.

Robbie Fox of Barstool Sports reported on Monday that John Cena and Daniel Bryan are “refusing” to go to Saudi Arabia, while other wrestlers have expressed concern about working the show.

In his latest episode of “Wrestling Observer Radio,” Dave Meltzer confirmed that Cena is refusing to take part in the Crown Jewel. Meltzer said the WWE creative team was informed on Monday that they need to find a replacement for Cena, according to WrestlingInc.com.

Khashoggi, a Saudi Arabian who lived in the United States, was killed at the Saudi Arabian consulate on Oct. 2. News reports stated that he was murdered and dismembered inside the consulate, and Saudi officials initially said he left alive before admitting he died. They claimed Khashoggi was strangled to death after a fight broke out.

Many politicians and companies have called for Donald Trump to condemn Saudi Arabia in the wake of the incident, but the president said he spoke with Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman and believes a thorough investigation is taking place.

The Crown Jewel is scheduled for Nov. 2, but there has been talk that it is in jeopardy. Fox said WWE officials have been scrambling in an attempt to find a new location for the event.

Nikki Bella does not rule out getting back together with John Cena

John Cena proposes

John Cena has made it known publicly that he desperately wants to get back together with Nikki Bella, and his former fiancee is not quite ready to rule it out.

Cena said when he and Bella were dating that he did not want to have children, and that is one of the reasons their relationship fell apart. While she admits she initially thought Cena was saying he changed his mind about having kids just because he wants her back, Nikki told TMZ this week that she now believes the 16-time champion is being sincere.

“I believe 100 percent he wants kids,” she said. “It makes me want to run back and jump into his arms.”

Nikki said she thought Cena was just telling her what she wanted to hear prior to this week, but she apparently changed her mind after he poured his heart out in a TV interview. She also expressed frustration over people saying their relationship and breakup was a reality TV stunt.

“I care about him and love him a lot,” Bella said. “A lot of people get married for publicity. I’m not like those reality show people. I don’t want to be hesitant. I want to do what my heart says.”

Cena and Nikki were together for more than five years, and their proposal was even tied into the biggest WWE event of the year. While Bella says the wedding is still off at the moment, it sounds like the breakup is less than final.

John Cena proposes

It has been several weeks since WWE superstar John Cena and his girlfriend Nikki Bella called off their wedding and ended their relationship, and Cena says the single life has not been easy for him.

Cena spoke with Kathy Lee and Hoda on “TODAY” about the breakup Monday, and he said he has been dealing with a lot of depression.

“I had my heart broken out of nowhere,” Cena said. “Anyone who has experienced that knows that it comes with a series of bad feelings. … I still love Nicole. I still would love to marry Nicole. I still would love to have a family with Nicole.”

The 41-year-old spoke for several minutes about wanting his relationship with Bella to work out, and he also admitted he was “stubborn” when he openly stated before that he did not want children. Now, Cena says he realizes he wants a family with Bella.

“If you look at me five years ago — stubborn, selfish, self-focused. Life had always been about me,” Cena admitted. “Slowly, over time, this woman waltzes in and steals my heart. Whether I want to realize it or not, she becomes my No. 1. I’m willing to go back on all of these things that I said. A lot of them I hung onto just because of stubbornness, (like saying) I won’t have kids. I took a very strong look in the mirror to be like, ‘Why? This person is my No. 1, and it’s something that’s very valuable to her.’

“I love her. I want to be with her. I want to make her my wife. I want to be the father of her children. I just want us to work.”

Cena and Nikki were together for more than five years, and their proposal was even tied into the biggest WWE event of the year. It remains to be seen if they will get back together, but Kathy Lee and Hoda sure seemed to think the 16-time WWE champion was being genuine.

John Cena finally popped the question.

The WWE Superstar proposed to girlfriend Nikki Bella at WrestleMania 33 in Orlando on Sunday, right after the two won a tag team match against The Miz and Maryse.

“I just need you to say yes one more time,” Cena said as he broke out the ring from his pocket. “I have been waiting so long to ask you this. Stephanie Nicole Garcia-Colace — will you marry me?”

The proposal from Cena ends all the razzing and questions he had faced on “Total Bellas” over not proposing to Nikki. The wrestler had his family sitting ringside to enjoy the big moment and got to celebrate afterwards.

The two have been dating since 2012.

John Cena Jon Stewart

Jon Stewart is fresh off his retirement from hosting “The Daily Show” on Comedy Central, and he has commenced his foray into the world of professional wrestling. And he is getting heavily involved in the scene!

Stewart hosted SummerSlam on Sunday and made a huge heel turn by helping previous nemesis Seth Rollins defeat John Cena. Stewart explained in the ring at “RAW” on Monday that he helped Rollins because he didn’t want Cena to tie Ric Flair’s record of 16 world championships. Flair later came out and said he was actually rooting for Cena. Next Cena came out, confronted Stewart, and then bodyslammed the host:

John Cena suffered a broken nose — for real — during his match with Seth Rollins on “RAW” Monday night.

Cena was hit in the face by a high knee from Rollins and legit broke his nose. Though he was bleeding and kept touching his injured face, he continued to wrestle in the match.

The broken nose was obviously bothering Cena, but he didn’t let it stop him. He bounced back from a few potential pins by Rollins and got his opponent to tap out!

Here is video of the knee that broke his nose:

As soon as the match ended, a trainer came into the ring to treat Cena and appeared to partially move his nose back into place. He remained in the ring to celebrate and received tons of cheers from the crowd.
