On Tuesday, actor and WWE superstar John Cena returned to “Today,” where he reflected about his recent comments about ex-fiancée Nikki Bella.
The day before, Cena told Hoda and Kathie Lee, “I want to be with her. I want to make her my wife. I want to be the father of her children. I just want us to work.”
Cena said he had no regrets putting his cards on the table, explaining, “I just wanted her to hear me. You cannot force someone to love you.” He added, “I did what I did yesterday for one person and one person only… It’s because I love her.”
As for his reaction to Nikki’s comments to his interview, John said, “I heard some of the comments she made and I think… she’s searching for something, so I can’t force her to find it and I don’t want this to fall apart because of speculation of, ‘I think he’s doing this or I think he feels this way.’”
On Monday, Nikki was “speechless” when “Extra’s” AJ Calloway told her about John’s confession that he still wanted to marry her.
Cena also thanked Hoda and Kathie Lee for allowing him to express his feelings, adding, “It helped me a lot.”
