Their on/off relationship saga, which has been going on for months, conveniently coinciding with Total Bellas, appears to have been continuing in secret whilst Cena was in China working on Jackie Chan's 'Project X' movie.
Apparently, the sixteen-time world champion flew back to Tampa last week having wrapped filming, and then continued to San Diego where the couple own a home. The videos which WWE have been releasing of Cena in the Far East were shot weeks ago during a break in filming.
Furthermore, according to reports, John attended a BirdieBee party that Nikki hosted just days after their split in the summer, and the Total Bellas cameras will be backstage for WWE's Super Show-Down pay-per-view on Saturday night, where the pair will see each other "for the first time in months".
There has been a great deal of skepticism around their break-up, with many questioning the validity of the ending of their six-year relationship and suggesting it may well have been manufactured purely for the E! Network cameras. Rumours like this would hint at the fact that things may not be as they seem.
