John Cena is one of the most well-known WWE superstars of the twenty-first century. Globally recognized, he has been for years a huge part of regular WWE programming. His current wife is Shay Shariatzadeh, whom he met during the shooting of a movie.
Who is John Cena's Wife, Shay Shariatzadeh?
John Cena's wife Shay Shariatzadeh, is an engineer of Canadian nationality. She was born in 1989 in Iran. Since Cena's highly publicized break-up with fellow professional wrestler Nikki Bella, his romantic future was widely debated, with several unsubstantiated rumors floating around the internet.
However, such rumors were soon cast away when nearly a year after the break-up, Cena was seen holding hands with a mystery woman. According to reports, John Cena and the mystery woman enjoyed a four-hour-long dinner in Vancouver.
When the former pressed for information about said engagement, the latter spoke to her about the woman. After noticing a group of young ladies, "The Leader Of Cenation" found it extremely difficult to move his eyes away from a particular woman in the group. That was when the relationship started, which led to the marriage.
In February 2020, fans and news outlets started suspecting an engagement between Cena and Shariatzadeh. The fact that their relationship was far more away from spotlight than that of Cena and Nikki made it difficult for the outlets to outright confirm an engagement.
While the duo did not announce an engagement, Shariatzadeh was seen wearing a diamond ring. Some of Cena's uncountable fans spotted the couple walking around San Diego, and even they managed to spot the ring of Shariatzadeh's finger.
Finally, on 14th of October, 2020, PWInsider broke the news which confirmed the previous reports of Cena and Shariatzadeh's engagement. The report stated that Cena and his partner had married two days back. Cena and his new wife did not throw a high-flying, lavish wedding party in the middle of a global pandemic. The ceremony was private, and was completed at an attorney's office at Tampa, Florida.
Shay Shariatzadeh works at Sonatype as a Project Manager, as per reports from PureWow.
Shariatzadeh is not a public figure, at least she was not a public figure before her relationship to Cena brought her to the spotlight. She has always enjoyed Maths and Physics.
The final push was when she saw a project of her brother, who studied Engineering. She met a mentor early in her career and learnt the ins and outs of product management. It seemed to her a blend of technical, business and people skills.
John Cena's first wife was Elizabeth Huberdeau. She is also a resident of West Newbury, Massachusetts.
While not much is known about her background, she supposedly was the high school sweetheart of the wrestler. Cena first acknowledged his relationship with his future wife during the promotion of "12 Rounds" (2009). On July 11, 2009, the duo married. On May 1, 2012, a divorce was heard of, which was finalized a week later.
However, John Cena's later relationship with professional wrestling Stephanie Nicole Garcia-Colace garnered the most attention, mainly due to the high publicity.
Stephanie is well known for her in-ring name Nikki Bella. Their relationship was brought to the public eye on a weekly basis through "Total Bellas", a reality show dealing with the lifestyle and relationships surrounding the twin sisters Nikki and Brie.
After a WrestleMania match where Cena and Nikki Bella faced and defeated Maryse and The Miz, "Big Match John" went on his knees and proposed to Nikki, which she accepted.
However, their relationship ended in a similarly remarkable fashion. A month before their scheduled marriage on May 5, 2018, the duo cancelled their engagement.
The chief decision behind the cancellation was Cena's obstinacy in his decision to not have children. Cena, as a man hunting all success he can while in his prime, does not want to have a child and then remain an absent father.
