John Cena proposed to his long-time girlfriend, fellow wrestler Nikki Bella during WrestleMania 33 on Sunday.
After the duo defeated The Miz & Maryse, Cena grabbed a microphone, took a knee and asked Nikki Bella to come to the center of the ring.
“I have been waiting so long to ask you this. Stephanie Nicole Garcia-Colace. Will you marry me?” Cena asked, using her real name.
