"It's not what you go through that defines you; you can't help that," the quote reads. "It's what you do AFTER you've gone though it that really tests who you are."

Cena also sent a message to his fans on Twitter, writing Tuesday, "Sometimes we must bare the burden of shame and judgement to protect and give to the ones we love. #RiseAboveHate."

Following the split announcement, a source gave us some insight into the end of the couple's relationship.

"John never really wanted to get married in the first place but one of the biggest points of contention or disagreements they had through their relationship was that Nikki wanted to have kids and start a family and John didn't. They were not on the same page in that respect," a source shared with E! News.

"Things have been brewing for a while between them," the insider also told us. "As John got more and more popular things changed and he got the Hollywood bug. He got more opportunities and he just isn't the same person now that he promised Nikki he'd be for her."

The source added, "Even when he was working long distance it became an issue, he wasn't giving her what she needed emotionally."

"After much contemplation and 6 years of being together Nikki Bella and John Cena announced today their decision to separate as a couple," a statement posted on Nikki's Instagram account read Sunday. "While this decision was a difficult one, we continue to have a great deal of love and respect for one another. We ask that you respect our privacy during this time in our lives."
