Both have had impressive wrestling careers with Cena being a 16-time world champion (13-time WWE Champion) while Bella holds the record as the longest reigning WWE Divas Champion at 301 days.

They've since transitioned away from wrestling towards acting with Cena appearing in movies like Trainwreck, Ferdinand, The Marine and the new R-rated comedy Blockers.

Bella stars in a reality TV show on E! called Total Bellas with her twin sister, Brie and she was a member of Dancing with the Stars in 2017.

Us Weekly was first to report the breakup.
