John Cena, a prominent figure in both WWE and acting, is widely known for his larger-than-life persona, which often overshadows any actual acting work he does. His long-time girlfriend, Nikki Bella, has also made a name for herself in WWE, earning numerous accolades for her impressive performances in the ring. However, being associated with such a high-profile celebrity has subjected her to a lot of sexist and derogatory remarks.
Recently, Nikki Bella was attacked by fellow WWE wrestler Carmella for her relationship with John Cena. She has even expressed her frustration with the fact that her success is often attributed to her association with Cena. In her own words, “No, it makes my career so much harder, because no matter how hard I work I’m always going to have people take away everything I do because of John. I won’t get certain things because people will be like, ‘Oh, people are gonna think she has this because of John’ so let’s just not give it to me. I have to work much harder being with a successful man to prove myself.”
Despite dating Cena for over 13 years, Nikki Bella has faced a lot of shame and negativity due to his fame. Nevertheless, she has earned the WWE Divas Champion title twice, with her second reign lasting 301 days and surpassing AJ Lee’s previous record of 295 days. However, even with her impressive accomplishments, she is still subjected to snarky comments, as was the case with Carmella’s recent remarks on SmackDown Live.
In a WWE arena, Carmella accused Nikki Bella of getting away with anything because of her relationship with Cena, stating, “You can get away with whatever the hell you want around here because your boyfriend is John Cena.” However, Nikki refused to let such comments go unchecked, with Carmella continuing, “That’s right, I said it. I’m not gonna walk on eggshells like anybody else. The only reason you’re still Fearless is that you go home every night with Mr. Hustle Loyalty and Respect.”
This is not the first time Nikki has faced criticism for dating someone famous and successful. She has had to deal with mean comments about her personal life for years. Despite the challenges she faces, Nikki remains determined to prove herself and match up to Cena’s success. She acknowledges that her association with one of the most well-known wrestlers of all time puts a weight on her shoulders, and she must work harder to prove her own worth and talent.
