John Cena reveals how he met his wife Shay Shariatzadeh

John Cena recently revealed a touching tale about a pleasant surprise i his n life, even though he is usually tight-lipped about his private life. It all started on a Super Bowl Sunday in 2019 when Cena went to a Canadian club in Vancouver and met Shay Shariatzadeh, the woman who eventually became his wife. Cena had planned to watch the game by himself, but Shariatzadeh’s appearance drew him in and he was secretly busy in stalking her. 

Recalling the moment, the 46-year-old star said, “So we watched the game, and then the table sitting right across from us — this group of five people walked in. Man, I stopped watching the game. I didn’t even know it was over.” It turns out that Destiny had different ideas for Cena, even though he wasn’t looking for love at the moment.

Despite Cena’s initial fear about meeting Shariatzadeh, he gathered the courage to ask for her number when her friend approached him for a photo. The Hollywood star commented on the situation, saying, “Finally, I got the guts to be like, ‘Only if I can get that girl’s number.’”

This move led to their first fan picture, which they now cherish and proudly display in their house. Their love journey began with this meeting, serving as a reminder that the most magical moments may happen when we least anticipate them.

Despite Huberdeau’s lack of celebrity status compared to Bella, she benefited financially and socially from her marriage to Cena, thanks to their divorce settlement. They started dating in college and were married in 2009, but their marriage was short-lived, and they split in 2012. 

Huberdeau is believed to have gotten a substantial settlement of $55 million, notwithstanding the end of their marriage. Nikki Bella was the Peacemaker star’s next romantic interest, however, they too ended their relationship. In 2020, Cena tied the knot with Shariatzadeh, whom he rediscovered in early 2019.

Oh, hi, this is Md Robin Ahmed, a WWE fan and I everyday go through a slew of popular WWE stories on Sportszion. Watching Big Show's Showstopper was the beginning of my passion for WWE, though I have to say that his Chokeslam is not one of my favorite moves. Over time, my love for professional wrestling has intensified, mostly due to the Shield, and my all-time favorite wrestler in WWE is Big Dog. I would give everything to be able to be within a few feet of him to witness his iconic Superman Punch and Spear. My major is engineering, but I'm most happy when I'm doing something artistic that doesn't put me under any pressure. Watching them wrestle and discuss their matches is always fun for me. And I've finally discovered a career that gives me fun since it allows me to with my dream heroes lifestyle. So, Welcome! I'd love to hear from you on LinkedIn and Facebook.
