"WORST DAY EVER!" read a Simpsons meme posted by Cena following the news.

I found the absolute right person. A strong person that I consider an inspiration, an equal," Cena told reporters at the time. "Somebody who, when I'm feeling down, picks me up.

Before their shocking split, the WWE champ also told interviewers that he and Bella were "in a much different place" following a rough patch, and that he was excited to spend his life with her.
