As sporting personalities go, I thought John Cena was the second-best one in Trainwreck (after LeBron James, obviously). Cena’s turn as a sensitive new age gym rat was a delightful surprise, and led to his acting career picking up serious steam after the movie was released.
But one person who wasn’t as big a fan of Cena’s role in the 2015 comedy is his now-ex fiancée, fellow WWE star and reality TV personality Nikki Bella. The pair, who were together 6 years, became engaged at Wrestlemania 33 last year but announced their split in April, and Bella is blaming (at least part of) the breakup on his part in Trainwreck.
Namely, the graphic (yet hilarious) sex scenes featuring Cena and co-star Amy Schumer.
Bella dished in a recent episode of her show Total Bellas that watching her partner – who she was still engaged to while filming the show – in the movie seriously affected their relationship.
Imagine watching your man do a sex scene and have the whole world see his big butt. You know you get visuals. I swear, I couldn’t masturbate forever because I just think of the sex scene.
Cena and Bella have sparked reconciliation rumours with some flirty back-and-forth on Instagram, but for now they remain split up – with Cena’s ass apparently the main culprit.
In a previous episode of Total Bellas, Bella also complained of hardly seeing her fiancé, calling the situation “really tough”.
I’m like busier than ever. So he’s like, ‘I was really lonely.’ I saw him every morning and every evening. Emails don’t end just because you want my time. It’s really tough.
