Posted By Caroline Walsh on 05/15/18

As we reported yesterday, John Cena stopped by the Today show and revealed that he still loves Nikki Bella and wants to make their relationship work. Nikki Bellaís reaction to the news eventually made its way online. Cena returned to Today and commented on why he decided to speak out. Here are highlights (via Wrestling Inc):

On how important the interview was to him: ďFirst I want to say thank you ladies for always having me on, always giving me a chance to be able to be honest and I think thatís important. I donít know if people understand how difficult it is to lead a life in the public eye. Iím grateful but Iím also respectful of everyoneís opinions on what happened yesterday. I did what I did yesterday for one person and one person only. Itís because I love her and I think in times of separation, often we speculate on what the other person is doing and sometimes communication can get messed up. And this is something that people donít necessarily understand Ė when you live life in the public, sometimes if you do something in private and then you do something different in public, that person can be like, ĎWell you treat me two different ways.í So, it was very important for me to be honest with myself, with you, with all of you, because then that allows me to be honest with Nicole. I donít care about being viral, I donít care about anyoneís comments, although Iím grateful for all that. I care about one person. One person.Ē

On having no regrets: ďI have never regretted one single moment that I have been with Nicole. It has been a constant learning experience. If you look at me in 2012 and you look at me sitting right here, itís a learning experience and one Iím grateful for. Like I said yesterday, if I never have another second, the time I had was so special and yesterday was even like a top to the top. I learned so much from yesterday, just by being able to be comfortable with who I am and being honest in public. Thatís such a liberating thing.Ē

On what Nikki said afterward: ďI saw some of the comments that she made and I thinkÖ like I said, sheís searching for something. I know I canít force her to find it but I donít want this to fall apart because of speculation of, ĎI think heís doing this or I think he feels this way. Here are my cards, they are on the table. Weíll figure out where it goes.Ē
