Everything You Need To Know About Shay Shariatzadeh, John Cena's Wife

John Cena is among the few to have a spotlight beginning to his career, coming out to accept Kurt Angle’s challenge and starting what would become a new era and chapter in the history of WWE. 

He has since lived almost every moment of his life in the public eye. Despite his mega stardom, however, he has managed to keep his wife, Shay Shariatzadeh, away from the prying eyes of fans and media.

This, however, has only piqued the interest of many who want to know more about the legendary wrestler turned actor’s better half. 

His wife may not have the recognition, but she is just as accomplished in her own field.

Shay Shariatzadeh was born in 1989. She is of Iranian heritage, although, she now lives in Vancouver. Shariatzadeh is an engineer and works at Sonatype as a Project Manager.

John Cena saw Shay Shariatzadeh at a Vancouver restaurant where she was dining with a group of female friends, and in his own words, couldn’t take his eyes off her.

Just a year later, reports emerged that the two had gotten married. They tied the knot in a private ceremony in Tampa, Florida, back in Oct. 2020.

The couple had a second wedding last year at Vancouver; the same place John Cena saw Shay Shariatzadeh for the first time.

John Cena was previously married to Elizabeth Huberdeau. They married on July 11, 2009, and divorced three years later. He then dated fellow WWE Superstar Nikki Bella.

Reports claimed that they differed in their views on wanting children. She has since married her Dancing with the Stars partner and Russian dancer Artem Chigvintsev, with whom she has a son.
