Before getting in the ring Sunday, John spoke to HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY about his love for Nikki. “I will tell everyone who will listen — Nicole is the most inspiring person I’ve met and that is why I love her,” he said. “You can mention that I’ve headlined with The Rock, and I have been part of a lot of WrestleMania moments, but this moment tomorrow, to me, is the most important of all because I get to spend it with the person I love and do what I love.”
“So this is the one I will remember. Everyone always asks me what is my favorite match and the answer is always the same — the next one. But when you ask me that after Sunday, my answer will be: The second I was in a WrestleMania ring alongside Nicole and kicking some butt!”
The couple have been dating since 2012, but after his first marriage to his high school sweetheart ended badly, John has been against the idea of marriage. It’s been brought up many times on their reality show, Total Divas.
“We’ve been to therapy over it. I don’t think it will ever be over with,” he told Rolling Stone magazine in a 2016 interview. “I’m stubborn as fu-k and extremely selfish as well. I don’t want kids, I don’t want marriage. That’s me just saying, ‘Hey, this is my life and this is how I’m going to live.'”
Well it sounds like something changed! We also know that John will be taking some time off to film, The Pact, and she will take time to rest during that time. Nikki underwent neck surgery last year and while she’s been back in the ring, has been very vocal about wanting to be very careful to avoid any further injuries. It looks like now they’ll also be taking that time to plan a wedding!
HollywoodLifers, are you excited they’re finally engaged?!
