The announcement article with pictures is here.
Kathy Colace is the mother of WWE Divas Brie Bella and Divas Champion Nikki Bella. Her engagement to John Laurenitis is likely a shock to everyone who doesn’t watch the Divas reality TV show. I actually don’t but I read the recap online the day after.
The picture–which I can’t embed because of how the WWE Website encoded it–features the happy couple opposite John Cena and Nikki Bella, the latter two dating (which the article doesn’t mention for obvious reasons). Again, this is sure to surprise those who don’t watch the Divas TV show. I will now take this moment to explain the REAL reason house crowds started chanting “John Cena Sucks!” 5 years ago, and it’s not just because he’s going to eventually break Ric Flair’s record 16 Title wins. It’s because he had an affair with his then wife and WWE helped him cover it up to protect his “Golden Boy” image.
That said, in a surprising twist Cena said to Nikki two years back on an episode of Divas he doesn’t want to marry her and he doesn’t want kids. He didn’t mention his ex-wife but it was obvious that was what he had in mind when he said that. He doesn’t want to be in that position again, especially given his girlfriend’s title reign is being extended on purpose break AJ Lee’s record. Don’t expect Nikki to drop the title at Night of Champions on that note.
Speaking of AJ Lee, it’s been said for a while now that she was the one who convinced her now husband CM Punk to leave WWE in January 2014. AJ returned to action just after Punk was offcially moved from active to alumni on the WWE website, dispelling rumors she would be leaving, too. AJ “retired” from WWE after Fast Lane, which she did not participate in, citing her desire to have children.
I assume there was some truth to the rumors AJ convinced CM Punk to walk away from his WWE contract for the company to be going out of its way to have Nikki Bella break the record she set for the longest Divas title reign. Personally, I would be surprised if Nikki and Cena stay together for another 3 years. She clearly wants to settle down and Cena clearly doesn’t wanna be married again. The latest buzz is Brie has been trying to get pregnant for months but kept having to push things back because of the Divas Revolution. If she’s booked to be out for a year, it’s a safe bet she’s pregnant.
