Professional wrestling maybe fake and scripted but not always. Sometimes real things can happen on these shows. Two real things happened last night on Wrestlemania. Undertaker retiring and John Cena finally proposing to his longtime girlfriend, Nikki Bella. I’m almost 100% sure the John Cena proposal to Nikki wasn’t scripted. This brought back to the time when Macho Man Randy Savage proposing to Miss Elizabeth on a past Wrestlemania and they became a real life married couple for a while after that. So if it happened to them, the same can happen to John & Nikki. Well, I’m sure Cena had to get Vince McMahon’s approval first to propose to Nikki in front of the whole world and obviously Vince was all for it ’cause it gave the WWE good publicity. The John Cena and Nikki engagement is all over the news. The Cena/Bella engagement, that’s kayfabe.
After Undertaker removing his wrestling gear and celebrating his retirement and wrestling career with his fans, walking over to ringside to kiss his wife… that was all kayfabe.
The term kayfabe is a wrestling term in the community meaning things that happen in wrestling that is real. It’s when wrestlers go out of character and do unscripted things. Again, wrestling maybe fake but not all the time. Sometimes real things do happen. That word, “kayfabe”. There was some of that last night at Wrestlemania which was cool. WWE needs more kayfabe ’cause it makes the shows more interesting.
I too liked the Cena and Nikki Bella engagement a lot. It showed that Cena is a great guy in real life and after that, I like him a lot more now. Cena and Nikki Bella weren’t the only power couple in wrestling who ended up being real couples in real life: Macho Man and Miss Elizabeth for starters… Undertaker & Michelle McCool, Tyson Kidd & Nattie, Brock Lesnar & Sable, CM Punk & AJ Lee, Jimmy Uso & Naomi, Rusev & Lana, etc.
I wonder if Cena & Nikki will have a private wedding or do an on TV wedding like with Savage/Elizabeth. We’ll have to wait and see. I wouldn’t be surprised if Cena & Nikki films their wedding for “Total Divas” reality show. The Tyson Kidd and Nattie wedding was aired on “Total Divas”, I think.
