During the podcast, fans ask questions to the guests, and Nikki got quite a controversial one. A fan asked her if she congratulated her ex-fiancé on his surprise wedding. She responded, “I haven’t … but yeah, I didn’t. Are there rules? Am I supposed to? Should I send flowers?”

After the rather awkward moment, Nikki went on to send a sweet message to John Cena. “John, congratulations on your wedding. I’m very, very happy for you.”

Nikki Bella has not wrestled in WWE since Evolution 2018. She wrestled Ronda Rousey in a losing effort, failing to capture the Raw Women’s Championship. Brie and Nikki have confirmed that they will return to the ring, but not anytime soon.
