“This is what you wanted over a year ago. 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,” said Cena.
He continued, “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.”
The “Ferdinand” voice actor then reached onto his pocket, pulled out a ring box, and got on bended knee. “I have been waiting so long to ask you this, Will you marry me?” he proposed to Bella, who nodded yes.
Aww <3 This is by far the most romantic stunt we’ve seen in a wrestling ring.
Watch the full proposal below:

39-years-old Cena and 33-year-old Bella (real name Stephanie Nicole Garcia-Colace) started dating in 2012. Their relationship and Cena’s reluctance to get married has been a subplot of E!’s “Total Divas” and “Total Bellas”.
Congratulations to the happy couple :)
