Like John Cena had to work with Nikki Bella's ex-boyfriend, the WWE Hall of Famer also shared the ring with Cena's ex-girlfriend.

Before the 16-time World Champion and Bella got together in 2012, Cena had a few romances in the WWE locker room. In 2007, The Leader of the Cenation dated Mickie James. However, their love story ended shortly after.

James left WWE in 2010 and returned six years later. Upon her return, she addressed working around Cena during her appearance on Lilian Garcia's Making Their Way podcast.

""We're all adults, and you know obviously this business is what it is, and we've all had our share of relationships failed. I think that being adults and being professionals... It's such a tight-knit thing... you don't get a chance to... make any type of outside life. We're all grown adults and I would hope that, and I'm pretty sure that it's going to be pretty awesome," James said.

After her WWE return, the six-time Women's Champion did not have to share the ring with her ex-boyfriend. Nonetheless, she had to work with his then-girlfriend Nikki Bella. Bella and James faced each other in three tag team matches in 2017.

The first match came in the preshow of the 2017 Royal Rumble pay-per-view. Bella teamed up with Becky Lynch and Naomi to defeat Alexa Bliss, Natalya, and James.


In March 2017, Bella teamed up with Lynch, Asuka, and Tamina to defeat Bliss, Carmella, Natalya, and James at a live event. The two teams faced each other again the following night at another live event. The bout ended with the same result.
