John Cena Teared Up Talking About His Engagement On ‘Good Morning Britain’

John Cena is currently taking some time off from WWE to focus on his full-time job these days: just generally being John Cena.

The 16-time world champ is hard at work filming movies like Bumblebee and being sued by companies like Ford, but he’s also hitting the press circuit with a vengeance following the release of Daddy’s Home 2 and the impending release of Ferdinand on December 15, the first time Cena will anchor a cinematic animated feature.

During an appearance on Good Morning Britain on Tuesday (which is like Good Morning America, but blander), Cena’s promotion of Ferdinand segued into the hosts talking about his proposal to Nikki Bella at WrestleMania 33. While watching a clip of the proposal, Cena started getting glassy-eyed, and Piers Morgan expressed surprise about the Champ getting emotional.

Cena eloquently explained his emotions, because the leader of the Chain Gang is never at a loss for words. (Transcript via Wrestling Inc.)

“It’s the best moment of my life, and I couldn’t think of a better place to do it. The WWE has been my family for the past 15 years … we have such a strong connection to our audience. The crazy thing about that moment was that I was in a match, before that, and if you watch the match back, the audience hated me. But it’s such a show of respect that once the performance was over, they realize that this is a moment we are both going to remember for all of our lives.”

When asked what would have happened had Nikki turned him down, Cena was quick to admit that he sort of put her in a situation where she couldn’t really say no. But it’s not like there was any danger of that happening, as those of us who have watched Total Divas from its very first scene will happily tell you.

These two lovebirds really just put a song in your heart. Love is real, everyone.
