"O Me! O Life!," he told E! when asked how he’s handling the breakup. " 'The powerful play goes on and you get to contribute a verse.' I love that Walt Wittman quote. Life is sometimes tough, but it's life and it goes on."

"Nicole knows I love her and I miss her, but that is what it is. And I'm still here, still going—and I choose to go."

"When you love somebody, it stings. That's why musicians write about it. That's why poets write about it. If anything, just try to take away what went wrong," he continued, "and enjoy the good times you had with the person that you love."

Just one year ago, John got down on one knee and proposed in front of thousands of fans at Wrestlemania 33, shocking Nikki, as she has spoken in the past about how she feared he would never put a ring on it.
