WWE legend and 16-time world champion John Cena was for 20 years the face of the company before transitioning to the silver screen with critically acclaimed roles in The Peacemaker and the Fast and the Furious franchise, among others. The Cenation Leader made his debut in 2002 after confronting Hall of Famer Kurt Angle before making a name for himself with The Doctor of Thuganomics gimmick.
Apart from making headlines with his wrestling acumen, The Peacemaker star’s personal life has also been the talk of the town. His relationship with fellow WWE star Nikki Bella ended in heartbreak despite a public engagement and proposal at WrestleMania 33 after the duo defeated The Miz and Maryse in a mixed tag team match.
The legend finally got hitched again in October 2020 with rumored partner Shay Shariatzadeh in a private ceremony. They made their marriage public in 2022 after a ceremony in Vancouver. Despite being married for over a year, the couple hardly makes any public appearances. They have been strict about not being clicked by paparazzi, but all of this seemed to have taken a backseat during a recent outing in London.
As can be seen in the photos, John Cena was spotted with Shay on the streets of London with a shopping bag in hand. He was wearing a pink shirt with shorts and sneakers, while his wife was seen wearing a tan trench coat.
When did John Cena last wrestle in WWE?
Cena’s list of achievements is second to none in the history of the sports entertainment juggernaut. He has the highest number of reigns with the WWE Championship (13) and is tied with the legendary Ric Flair for the most number of world title reigns (16). Among other accolades, Cena also holds the Guinness World Record for granting the most number of wishes as part of the Make-A-Wish Foundation with 650.
However, over the years, the multi-time world champion’s presence in the company has decreased massively. His only match in 2022 came during the year’s final episode of SmackDown when he teamed up with Kevin Owens to take on Roman Reigns and Sami Zayn. Cena and Owens emerged victorious after the enthralling encounter.

Following this, United States Champion Austin Theory mocked John Cena for several months until the latter finally responded by appearing on an episode of RAW to set up a match between himself and Theory at WrestleMania 39. During Night One of WrestleMania on April 1, Cena succumbed to defeat after some underhanded tactics were employed by the US Champion. After the referee was knocked out, Theory used a low blow and the A-Town Down to pin the former world champion. Cena has not been seen in the company since the loss.
