WWE’s romance storyline with John Cena and AJ Lee was placed on the back burner on Raw Monday as a result of photos surfacing online of the Cenation leader appearing as former WWE Diva Nikki Bella’s date at her ten-year high-school reunion in Scottsdale, Arizona two weeks ago. The photos received a lot of publicity from TMZ, so continuing Cena’s storyline with Lee just three days later would have thrown it “in the face of the fans.” The storyline is expected to resume later this month.
Cena’s character was depicted as “goofy” and “happy-go-lucky” because WWE wanted to promote the positive vibe around him based on the publicity he had received.
Cena’s date with Bella was legitimate as they have been together “for a little while.”
