Back in February, WWE star John Cena appeared on Today to talk with Kathie Lee and Hoda about his relationship with fiancée Nikki Bella following a dramatic scene on E!’s “Total Bellas.” In the scene, we saw John and Nikki having a tearful conversation, Nikki going so far as to say: “So do we really want to call this off?”

At the time, Cena shared that he was determined to make it work with Bella, but could not officially confirm that their wedding would still happen. “Like I said, we both have some work to do and we’re genuinely trying our best to work through it. We haven’t jumped ship yet,” he said at the time. Now, he’s back on Today and is happily confirming that their relationship is still on. “You guys are back on? We were worried,” Kathie Lee and Hoda said to him, to which he laughed: “You were worried?! My goodness. I’d put all my chips in and had to go get all my chips back.”

He then went on to explain that he and Nikki had a major disagreement (as most couples do), but it was one he wasn’t sure they could move forward from. “I think I can generalize it by saying in relationships, you have points of disagreement, and it was a point of disagreement that seemed like we couldn’t get past it,” he said.

When they asked Cena who ended up “caving,” Joh replied with a smile, saying, “We got past it and we moved on.” Needless to say, we’re relieved, and we’re so excited to see what they have planned for their big day!
