Nikki Bella And John Cena Got Engaged At Wrestlemania, But What Does It Really Mean?

WWE / YouTube

Sixteen-time WWE World Champion John Cena popped the question to his long-time girlfriend, “Total Bellas” star, Nikki Bella, at the ultimate thrill ride, Wrestlemania 33. But, in the scripted world of sports entertainment, what does that even really mean?

Here’s John Cena proposing to Nikki Bella at Wrestlemania:

The Undertaker lost, but this was still the saddest part of the event. If you’ve ever watched E!’s “Total Bellas” or caught the last few weeks of WWE’s “Smackdown Live!,” you must have seen this coming a mile away — even if you didn’t care or want it to happen.

But, was it real?

Dopey-in-love “Engaged Cena” is probably just the latest evolution of his character, which might mean the “Super Cena” era has finally come to a queasy end. If “Heel Cena” is a dream fans have, maybe this could lead to everything we’ve ever wanted. Nikki was a “bad guy” for most of her career, so it’s possible that… who am I kidding? Cena will be a good guy forever.

Historically, on-air proposals have only ever ended miserably…

When former Mötley Crüe roadie Test proposed to the boss’ daughter, Stephanie McMahon, she ended up marrying the cerebral assassin, HHH via drive-thru chapel. More recently, former Fandango dancer, Summer Rae, asked Rusev for his hand in marriage, but that ended with “the Bulgarian brute” marrying his valet/manager, Lana.

Unless you’re Macho Man, your chances of long-term success are slim…

Randy Savage has the only feel-good proposal story, and that actually ended up playing out horrifically. Yikes. Like, for real. Woof!

So, what does any of it mean?

WWE

Nothing, really. These things never end well, but maybe this one is different. I’d love to see those two crazy kids take the marriage bull by the horns and actually make it work, but also, who cares?

Sports entertainment engagements (entergagements)  should be treated like other wrestling gimmicks…

I would pay a lot more than the $9.99 WWE Network subscription fee to see a “Pre-nup-On-A-Pole” match. Why isn’t Vince thinking of this already?

With 15 Seasons Of Football Behind Him, Tony Romo Hangs Up His Jersey And Looks Forward To A Future In Sports Broadcasting

Nothing lasts forever, ya know? So, “November Rain” and professional athletes have at least that in common. According to Bleacher Report, Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo is hanging up his jersey after 15 years to pursue a broadcasting career.

Tony Romo, who was undrafted, became the starting quarterback for “America’s Team,” the Dallas Cowboys.

NFL

In the span of fifteen years, Tony Romo became the franchise player and face of the Dallas Cowboys. He also dated Jessica Simpson, so all in all, he had a pretty killer career for a dude who didn’t even get drafted.

But, at long last, he’s retiring from the game of professional football…

NFL

According to Bleacher Report, Romo, a four-time Pro Bowler, holds the Cowboys record for passing, with 34,183 yards. He also threw for 248 touchdowns.

Although he’s probably going to miss it…

During a press conference in November, Romo told the New York Times that it was tough to watch rookie Dak Prescott become the new leader of the Cowboys while he sat out. “If you think for a second I don’t want to be out there, then you probably never felt the pure ecstasy of competing and winning,” said Romo. “That hasn’t left me. In fact, it may burn now more than ever.”

… He’s looking forward to a career in broadcasting.

I’m not sobbing uncontrollably, my eyes are sweating. No, YOU’RE a baby!
