Cena's reluctance to get married has been fodder for WWE storylines and the E! reality programs.
The 16-time world champion was completely unable to build any offence against The Deadman and lost in under three minutes.
The professional wrestling couple were just weeks away from tying the knot on their May 5 wedding date after getting engaged during Wrestlemania 33 in April a year ago, but they have now revealed they are going their separate ways.
Nikki commented on her break up with Cena by simply saying, "we love you all" while including a section from the Us Weekly interview including the couple's public statement.
"We were together. I forget the rest", Cena posted on Instagram without a caption.
Cena said, "I think in relationships, you have highs and lows, and that was an extreme low". "We're gonna move forward and try to work through it".
In January, the couple had an engagement party and during his TODAY appearance, Cena was asked directly if the wedding was still on. "It's hard work, and a lot of times, it has to do with looking at yourself". "Love is handsome, but we've had to come to the realization after being together for five years that love is not easy."We work every day on us". "We haven't yet jumped ship".
