Wrestling champ, John Cena proposed to longtime girlfriend Nikki Bella in front of 70,000 fans last night, Sunday April 2, 2017.

John got on a bent knee just after he and Bella defeated The Miz and Maryse, a married Wrestlemania couple, in a tag team match in the ring.

“This is what you wanted over a year ago,” he began with his proposal speech.

“You broke your neck and did everything you could to come back because you wanted a WrestleMania moment. I'm so very proud of you.'

“Right before your surgery, there would be a time when you would be a little loopy and I could ask you anything I wanted.

“If you gave me an honest answer, you wouldn't remember what you said. After a year and half, you asked me all the time. 

“I promised I would tell you when the time is right. The time is right.

“You were kinda glassy, in and out. At the last moment, I said, ‘Can you hear me?’ You said, ‘Yes.’
