The WWE superstar - who has had a highly publicised break-up with former fiancee Nikki Bella over the past few months - posted a cryptic quote from influential late Russian playwright Anton Chekhov on Twitter.

Explaining he's "always enjoyed" the quote, he shared: "Perhaps the feelings that we experience when we are in love represent a normal state. Being in love shows a person who he should be."

It follows a number of social media posts which have left many fans puzzled, including one that some speculated were either hinting at the end of his WWE career or reflecting on his recent split from Nikki.

He wrote: "Nothing lasts forever. When doing something you love make sure to be present and enjoy it. That way if and when it ends, you can look back with fond memories instead of regret."

John later added that he was making sure to take a step back for "rest and recovery" rather than pushing himself too far with overwork.

He tweeted: "I am guilty of this myself but I'm changing my view now. Hard work and persistence are needed for success, but so is rest and recovery.

"Busy periods of time will come, but never sell short recharging yourself. I'm NOT on 'the grind 24/7' because rest is more productive."

Meanwhile, the 41-year-old star - who will be performing at WWE's 'Super Show-Down' on Saturday (06.10.18) in Australia - revealed he'll be returning to Australia for another "two months" after the event.

He explained: "Travel in the WWE is amazingly relentless but it's only because we have an audience that's so spread out. When you come to perform in Shanghai, you leave the next day because the routing is so very difficult it's logistically impossible to keep you there because there's another show to be had.

"This is similar to everywhere across the world. I've often told people, 'I've been around the world 25 times and seen nothing.'

"So, being able to come here and make this my home, like, I'm here. I've been here for three months and I'll be here for two more. So, five months out of a calendar year, I'm here."
