And WWE fans were in for a treat as newly-engaged Bella strolled onto the red carpet with legendary John Cena.

Bella and the 16-time world champion got engaged in front of 75,000 fans at Wrestlemania in April.

And they did not shy away from showing their affections last night, as the the duo smooched on their way into the 25th annual ESPYs.

Bella plugged her new Birdiebee lingerie range on the waistband of her underwear.

Intercontinental champ ‘The Miz’ was all smiles as he arrived at the awards with wife Maryse Ouellet, although his Miztourage were nowhere to be found.

Fellow WWE star Lana, who recently moved from being the manager of the Bulgarian Brute Rusev to a singles contender in her own right, dazzled in a black dress.

There were plenty of other American heroes at the bash, with Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers called up on stage to accept the Best Play award from Odell Beckham Jr.

NBA superstar Steph Curry was also in attendance with his wife Ayesha.

And Curry was later handed the award for Best Team at the Microsoft Theatre.

It was a special night for Michael Phelps, who met his wife Nicole Johnson at the event ten years ago.

The swimming sensation paid tribute to his missus with an emotional tribute after winning his Record-Breaking Performance gong.

He shared a snap of them on social media with the caption: “Happy birthday to my best friend and love of my life!

“Two days ago we celebrated our 10 year anniversary of meeting at the #espys! #yourethebest #happybday #happiness.”
