1. LISA MARIE VARON
First on our list is Lisa Marie Baron (53 years old as of 2023). Lisa is an American professional wrestler, fitness competitor, and bodybuilder like John Cena. According to online reports, it is said that Lisa was romantically linked to John during a break from her now ex-husband, Lee Varon. Below is a statement she made during an interview.
“We have separated a few times. One of those times that we were separated, I dated John for about a month. It was not in 2006 or 2007,” she also said “it was in 2002. It was when we were both in Louisville. I was married but separated. John was single. I was never his ‘road girlfriend.”
2. MICKIE JAMES
Second on the list is Mickie James. Just like Lisa, Mickie is also an American professional wrestler. Aside from wrestling, she is also a singer and songwriter, with her genre being Country Music.
Mickie and John Cena started dating privately in 2007. However, their relationship was made public in 2008 during a WWE storyline. However, it did not last long. Many people have talked about how their breakup might have led to Mickie being released from WWE in 2010.
But when she came back to WWE in 2016, and said, “We’re all adults and, you know, obviously this business is what it is,” Mickie said at the time. “We’ve all had our fair share of relationships failed. I think that being adults and being professionals….I would hope that, and I’m pretty sure that it’s going to be pretty awesome.“
As of 2023, Mickie is 44 years old.
Third on the list is Elizabeth Huberdeau. Elizabeth is an American real estate broker who was married to Cena only July 11, 2009. However, their relationship only lasted for 4 years as the couple got divorced in 2012.
Elizabeth was born September 28, 1989, in West Newborn, Massachusetts. As of 2023, she is 44 years old.
4. Kelly Kelly (Barbie Blank)
Barbara Blank Coba (born on January 15, 1987) is an American professional wrestler and model. She is best known professionally as “Barbie Blank” and goes by the ring name “Kelly Kelly.” In 2011, she became the WWE Divas Champion and held the title for four months.
Kelly Kelly was in a relationship with Cena while he was still married in February 2012. This situation was one of the reasons Kelly took a break from WWE to avoid any public scandal.
5. AJ Lee
Number 5 on the list is April Jeanette Mendez, a professional known as AJ Lee. Born on March 19, 1987, she is an American author, screenwriter, and former pro wrestler. She is an executive producer and color commentator for WOW – Women of Wrestling.
AJ’s relationship with John Cena has always been a rumor that is yet to be confirmed. Reports have it that she was romantically linked to Cena in July 2012.
6. Nikki Bella
Stephanie Nicole Chigvintsev, who goes by Nikki Garcia, is an American TV personality and a former professional wrestler. She’s most famous for her time in WWE, where she wrestled from 2007 to 2023 using the name Nikki Bella, and she often teamed up with her twin sister, Brie, as The Bella Twins.
One of John’s most famous relationships was with Nikki Bella. They started dating in 2012. During their time together, John didn’t want to marry again because he didn’t want to go through another divorce.
He also didn’t want kids because his busy career would make it tough to be a good parent. Their relationship struggles were shown on TV in Total Divas and Total Bellas.
But things changed, and at Wrestlemania in 2017, John proposed to Nikki, which made her very happy. However, the following winter, Nikki started having doubts about the relationship.
They broke up briefly in early 2018, but they got back together when John agreed to reverse surgery to have a baby with Nikki. Sadly, Nikki still didn’t feel right about the relationship, and they ended things for good in April 2018, just a few weeks before their planned wedding.
7. Shay Shariatzadeh
Last but not the least is Shay Shariatzadeh. Shay is currently married to John Cena. The couple got married on October 12, 2020, in Tampa, Florida. Cena’s current wife is an Engineer from Vancouver, Canada. She was born on September 21, 1990, in Iran.
Just as we have seen, John Cena has been with many women over the years in his career. Out of those women, he only got married to two: Elizabeth Huberdeau (divorced) and his new wife, Shay Shariatzadeh.
As stated earlier, some of the reasons for Cena’s break-up were his stand to not have children because of his busy career, which will not enable him to be a good parent.
