(Side note: feel a tad bad for her as the people around me were vicious live. Think they turned the mics down, but there was Reigns on Raw after Mania level boos for it and chants of "just say no!").
The whole storyline appeared made for that moment, too. Miz and Maryse harping on the "John will never marry you" thing, and the big finale was him proposing. If it was real, it had to be discussed between Cena and Nikki and put in place when the angle started.
Like others I'm 99.9% certain that Cena had already proposed to Nikki off screen and the WWE just wanted them to keep it quiet so they could do the "Mania moment". Super convenient that his mum happens to be in the front row of a wrestling show "when she never tends to show up for them". Plus i'm sure it was MEGA convenient that Al Roker just happened to be at Wrestlemania and just happened to be chosen to be the guest ring announcer for that specific match.
