At this point, it seems like most fans of Total Bellas now believe that the John Cena-Nikki Bella relationship drama from the last few weeks was a stunt for ratings.
The latest media outlet to pour water on their story is Star Magazine via The Daily Mail. The tabloid says that sources have indicated to them that "A lot of people suspect the split was a publicity stunt" and it was done for the ratings for the third season. As we noted earlier, the drama has not helped the show because Total Bellas has drawn the lowest ratings in series history over the last couple of weeks.
Their source added, "It seems too big of a coincidence that John and Nikki broke up right before the season premiere."
The story also notes that she never took off her engagement ring. Bella has claimed that she tried to give it back but he wanted her to keep it as a sign of the love he has for her.
As we noted before, people backstage in WWE believe that the split was a work and the word is that a wedding is planned for later this year. For the record, the couple is now confirming publicly that they are back together. Only they truly know if they were ever broken up in the first place.
