The two are seen tearful as they discuss their one major disagreement: having children. It appears Nikki is keen to experience motherhood and while John does not want to have children, he also doesn’t want to deprive Nikki of motherhood.
He says, “I will never force you not to be a mom.”
Nikki, with tears streaming down her face, responds she can’t pretend to be okay with the idea of never becoming a mother.
She reveals she thought she could make the sacrifice but she can not. She wipes her tears as she says, “I thought I could really sacrifice that, but I just can’t.”
The heartbreaking clip starts with a happy, positive vibe with Nikki excited about being a bride, and ends with her crying as the couple splits.

It is obvious that the couple, who were together for six years, realized they were on different pages in their relationship and could not make any more compromises to make it work. In the clip, the 40-year-old wrestler decides for the two of them that the wedding needs to be called off. He says, “I’m not sure we should go through with this.”
WWE’s Twitter account also shared the clip. While some fans were heartbroken, others seemed to think this was the best decision.

The couple were supposed to get married on May 5 but called their wedding off. After the split, 34-year-old Nikki went MIA to take a break and recover from her heartbreak. She has been living with her twin sister, Brie.
She posted a video on her YouTube channel, explaining that she was hiding out for the ‘obvious reasons’ everyone already knows about. She thanked her fans for being there during her hard times and that she really appreciated it. She said, “I’ve been staying at Brie’s. I know you all know why. I’ve kinda been MIA.”
“I’ve kinda been hiding out. I wanted to reach out to you all and thank you all for your love and support, I can’t tell you how much it’s meant to me, especially through a difficult time,” she added.
On what was supposed to be their wedding day, May 5, both the stars also individually posted cryptic messages on their social media, making it clear they are both struggling with moving on.
The complete episode of Total Bellas releases on May 20.
