After proving themselves the true “It” couple by defeating The Miz & Maryse in an action-packed WrestleMania Mixed Tag Team Match, John Cena & Nikki Bella got engaged on The Grandest Stage of Them All.
In the months preceding The Show of Shows, The A-Lister and his devious spouse made it their mission to paint a picture of Cena and Nikki as nothing more than “fake” and “power-grabbing,” a sentiment they brought to life in a series of scathing mic rants and Total Bellas parodies.
For their part, The Cenation Leader and Fearless Nikki maintained that Miz had stolen everything he was from other, “more talented” competitors, while Maryse had never really done anything at all. As a result, WrestleMania became an opportunity for each couple to show their opponents, the WWE Universe and themselves what they were truly all about. Continue reading Wrestlemania Results
The Miz & Maryse promised the WWE Universe the shocking conclusion to their Total Bellas spoof series on “Miz TV,” and they did just that. The new installment continued to pick on The A-List Couple’s WrestleMania opponents, drawing John Cena & Nikki Bella out to the arena to address the smear campaign.
Cena went off and retorted everything about The A-Lister and his bride’s spoof. He then challenged either Miz or Maryse to get WrestleMania started early, but the two instead opted to walk away and live to fight another day … Sunday, specifically.
The Miz & Maryse chose to have some fun at the expense of John Cena & Nikki Bella, creating “never-before-seen lost” Total Bellas footage (it was really just them in costume). In spite of this, Cena faced off with Fandango, who was accompanied by Tyler Breeze dressed up like Nikki Bella and deeming himself Breezy Bella. This prompted The Cenation Leader to bring out the REAL Nikki Bella to watch his back. Cena dominated Fandango, and when “Breezy Bella” tried to get involved, Fearless Nikki intercepted and took out Breeze as Cena handled Fandango with the Attitude Adjustment for the win.
After the match, the couple celebrated as they head to The Ultimate Thrill Ride with nothing but momentum.
Following their vicious attack on John Cena and Nikki Bella, which consisted of a physical assault on SmackDown LIVE and a verbal tongue-lashing on WWE Talking Smack last week, The Miz and Maryse doubled down on the verbal portion on this very special edition of “Miz TV.” Maryse suggested that Nikki coerced her out of the first season of Total Divas, but Cena and Nikki soon crashed the party as Miz & Maryse got out of dodge.
Fearless Nikki took the microphone to retort with a fiery message, suggesting that she and Maryse throw down in a match right now. Miz declined the match for his wife, stating that she has nothing to prove. However, a quite irritated-with-Miz Daniel Bryan emerged to make an even bigger match — John Cena & Nikki Bella vs. The Miz & Maryse at WrestleMania! Cena & Nikki look thrilled; Miz & Maryse … not so much.
In their first match together as a tag team, John Cena & Nikki Bella made quick work of James Ellsworth and his “friend who is a girl” Carmella defeating them with some impressive and synchronized tandem offense.
However, the Total Bellas stars would not have long to celebrate, as The Miz & Maryse left the SmackDown LIVE announce table to blindside the victorious couple. After brutalizing The Cenation Leader & Fearless Nikki, The A-Lister and his bride yet again tore down Cena and Nikki’s character and then shared a celebratory kiss in the ring.
Matters on “Miz TV” get explosive between John Cena, The Miz, Maryse and Nikki Bella
ST. PAUL, Minn. — Following the contentious events of last week’s SmackDown LIVE, John Cena journeyed to “Miz TV.”
Cena arrived, however The Miz immediately cut The Cenation Leader’s microphone and The A-Lister proceeded to go on a verbal tirade against the 16-time World Champion. When Miz finally granted Cena access to the mic, he responded with an impassioned speech on Miz’s character.
The situation intensified when a disgusted Maryse slapped John. However, the slaps would soon cease when an incensed Nikki Bella ran out to equal the odds. Miz & Maryse hightailed it out, putting a cap on the drama … for now.
After months of verbal and physical attacks, Nikki Bella and Natalya finally settled the score in a Falls Count Anywhere Match. The contest proved brutal with both The Queen of Black Harts and Fearless Nikki refusing to back down.
Then, just when It appeared that Bella was closing in on the victory, Maryse interfered, hitting Fearless Nikki multiple times with a steel pipe in what could only be seen as retribution for Nikki being thrown into her by Natalya backstage earlier in the contest. Maryse was soon pulled to the back by her husband, The Miz, but her interjection allowed Natalya to defeat the defenseless Nikki for the win.
After months of verbal assaults, blindside attacks and raucous brawls, Nikki Bella and Natalya will finally settle the score when they face off in a Falls Count Anywhere Match next week on SmackDown LIVE.
The match announcement was spurred on by SmackDown LIVE General Manager Daniel Bryan after the two Superstars got into another scrap, this time in Bryan’s office. Realizing that this issue could not continue much longer without some serious and dangerous repercussions, Bryan scheduled for the two to compete in a Falls Count Anywhere Match next week on Team Blue.

Jealousy has brought about the demise of many a good friendship. Count Nikki Bella and Natalya among them. In an attempt to settle matters, the two clashed inside the ring at WWE Elimination Chamber. Their intensely personal rivalry would not be resolved, however, as their match ended in a double count-out.
Tensions between these two stretch back almost two months, when The Queen of Black Harts finally admitted it was she who attacked Nikki backstage prior to her match at Survivor Series. The motive? Apparently, Natalya was jealous of the attention Nikki has been receiving, both in and out of the ring.
Since that admission, Natalya has been mocking Nikki, claiming that she’s the better wrestler. And for a while there at Elimination Chamber, she was making a strong case. In between a series of impressively strong maneuvers, Natalya could hardly contain her disdain, mocking Nikki’s boyfriend, John Cena, by mimicking his “U Can’t See Me” hand gesture and even going so far as to taunt Nikki’s mother, who was looking on from the front row inside Phoenix’s Talking Stick Resort Arena.
When the action spilled outside the ring, however, the fighting became so fierce that neither woman took note of the referee’s 10-count, essentially disqualifying both Superstars. The rivalry would not end there, though, as Nikki would spear Natalya as she walked up the ramp, signaling that the bad blood between these two will continue to run deep.
Phillips welcomed Nikki Bella and Natalya, and noted that they were in separate locations due to how personal their feud has become. He asked if they could become friends again. Nikki said the Natttie she knows and loves is dead to her. Natalya said they were never friends, and Nikki only has followers.
Nikki said Natalya is making things up in her head and has become a crazy cat lady. Natalya said she would put Nikki on the shelf. Nikki said the truth that the only thing Natalya was ever good at was wrestling. She asked what Natalya will do once Nikki beats her on Sunday. Natalya said John Cena is champion and won’t have time to nurse her back to health this time. Natalya said John Cena will move on to another woman who is better than Nikki. Natalya said Cena would probably end up with her if she wasn’t married. Nikki walked off the interview set.
