John Cena and Nikki Bella have broken off their engagement nearly a year after Cena proposed at WrestleMania 33, although there appears to be some dispute about how it ended.

Emily Longeretta of US Weekly reported Bella was the one to break it off based on Cena's comments in the press.

"John is a mess," the source said, but noted his ex-fiancee "is not devastated."

According to Stephanie Petit of People, however the split was due to Cena getting cold feet about the wedding.

A source said that Cena apparently "didn't think he had room in his life for a spouse or kids" after a previous marriage to Elizabeth Huberdeau that lasted from 2009 to 2012.

"But in that case, he never should've proposed, let alone in front of millions of people," the source told Petit. "Now she's heartbroken. This was supposed to be the happiest time of her life. He ruined it and blew everything up."

Cena and Bella had been dating since 2012 but hadn't set a date after their public proposal.

"I'm just kind of on standby to know when it is and where it is, and I'll be there," Cena said in March on The Tonight Show (via Rachel McRady‍ of Entertainment Tonight). 

Unfortunately, it appears as though the wedding is off for good.
