1. Nikki Bella and John Cena’s Relationship Is Rockier Than Ever
In the above clip from tonight’s episode, Nikki expresses her feelings about her relationship with Cena to her sister Brie. Because Cena doesn’t want to get marriage or have children, their relationship is in limbo …

It’s the 30th birthday for the twins and Nikki’s ex John Cena decides to send her sister Brie a text with birthday wishes rather than Nikki. Of course, this puts a little bit of a damper on the evening for Nikki, which is unfortunate since it’s her birthday.

Nattie gets drunk at the Bella twins’ birthday and she begins to dance with Cameron’s man. Nattie starts grinding on him and gets a bit crazy as far as Cameron is concerned, so Cameron ends up hitting Nattie. The two go outside and have a small argument, but clear it up quickly with laughter.

Wizard World is a celebrity and comic convention, so both Cena and the Bella twins were present. Then, Cena made his way into the Bella twins’ area to pose for photos with them. Clearly, Nikki felt very awkward, especially when Cena hugged her and asked her if she was okay.

8. Eva Marie Kicks Her Husband Out of Their Home
Sending her husband to a hotel because her family dislikes their relationship. Yup, great way to start your marriage. NOT! #TotalDivas

So, Eva Marie’s parents want to come visit and she’s terrified to tell them that she got married. As a result, Eva sends her husband away to stay in a hotel and makes him take all his things with him. He’s clearly not happy about it, but obliges while she tries to figure out a way to break the news to her parents.

9. The News of Eva’s Marriage Finally Comes Out
— Colin Brinkley (@cb_yellowjacket) March 17, 2014
When Eva’s parents get to her apartment, they start to talk about her relationship and her husband Jonathan shows up. Finally, the cat gets let out of the bag when Jonathan forgets to take off his wedding ring. Eva finally opens up and says they got married, but she wants to have a wedding in the summer. Eva’s family is, understandably, very upset and they choose to leave and go back to their hotel to process everything.
Later on, they all reconnect and Eva’s brothers basically gang up on her. In the end, Eva’s father leaves it as that Eva disrespected the family.

Cena sends Nikki a text asking her to meet him for dinner and Nikki doesn’t know what to think, but she decides to meet him. And then of course the show leaves us hanging … We’ll have to wait until next time to see what happens with Nikki and John Cena.
