Pro wrestling is all about interesting storylines and creating a ton of controversy. While a lot of it is based in some sort of fiction, pro wrestlers do have lives of their own. While it might be hard to distinguish, they do have personal lives outside of the ring. Of course they are celebrities so it’s only natural for people to want to know what’s going on with them outside of the ring. Perhaps those that people most obsess over in the WWE are the Divas. Certainly some of wrestling’s most popular personalities, WWE Divas are loved and obsessed over by tons of fans. As a result, their love lives become a major factor in some WWE storylines. Some of their relationships however, aren’t fabrications.
Divas obviously have lives away from the camera. Some date athletes, some date Hollywood stars and some stay within their community and date other wrestlers. It’s not incredibly uncommon. Most have been involved in some sort of relationship with a fellow wrestler at some point in their careers. It makes for good TV but also seems to make them genuinely happy. Some Divas have dated multiple wrestlers throughout their careers. Some have gotten married while most others haven’t ended as happily.
These are 10 WWE Divas who’ve dated multiple wrestlers.
10. Kelly Kelly
Just three years removed from her time as a WWE Diva, Barbara Blank – aka Kelly Kelly – apparently had a handful of flings during her WWE career. Now married to former NHL defenseman Sheldon Souray, she was rumored to have been with a decent number of men in the WWE. This all coming from the mouth of Randy Orton who claimed she’d been with “like, 10 guys” on the WWE roster. We know that she dated Test for a couple years, and stopped seeing him shortly before his death. She’s also been with Chris Jericho, Dave Batista and Justin Gabriel. This we know for sure. In regards to Randy Orton’s comments, you’ll have to take them with a grain of salt.
Though she’s currently working on the independent circuit, Maria had a long fruitful career as a WWE Diva and while her dating resume might not be as long as other Divas, she has had her share of relationships inside the WWE. Starting in 2005, Maria dated CM Punk for two years before the couple split. She then had a brief fling with John Cena which didn’t last long. She started dating Mike Bennet in 2011. The pair dated for three years and then got married in 2014. She currently serves as his Valet in the independent circuit.
Amy Dumas – aka Lita – dated fellow wrestler Matt Hardy for close to six years. But the relationship came to an abrupt end in 2006. The cause? Dumas had been cheating on Hardy with Adam Copeland (Edge). After the dirty secret was let out, she and Copeland dated for a brief period of time, but that didn’t last nearly as long as her prior relationship with Hardy did. She then moved on with CM Punk. That relationship did last longer than the last one, but ended with Punk leaving her for AJ Lee.
Though no longer with the WWE, Ashley Massaro enjoyed a memorable career as a Diva. She’s currently a general manager with World Independent Ladies Division Wrestling. In her time with the WWE, Massaro had two pretty noteworthy relationships that seemed to create some tension. She first dated Matt Hardy for a year before moving on to Paul London. She got together with London the same year her relationship with Hardy ended. Hardy and London took to the internet to air out some issues they had with each other and Massaro was smack in the middle of all the rumors surrounded the feud.
6. AJ Lee
AJ Lee enjoyed a successful career in the WWE and will be remembered as one of its greatest Divas. But it all had to end after a relatively awkward and uncomfortable situation with the WWE forced her to retire. Apart from her well-publicized relationship with CM Punk, AJ dated her former trainer Jamar Shipman for a brief period of time, as well as Trent Barreta. In 2012 she was rumored to be seeing John Cena and started dating CM Punk the year after. The two married a year after. She retired earlier this year after being caught in the cross-hairs of the ongoing battle between her husband and the WWE.
5. Torrie Wilson
A complete bombshell, Torrie Wilson was one of the most popular and successful WWE Divas of her generation. Wilson used to be a fitness model before taking her talents inside the ring. She was married to Billy Kidman for a number of years but the couple split in 2006. She then dated Nick Mitchell for five years and was rumored to have dated Japanese wrestler Yoshihiro Tajiri sometime in the ’90s. Outside of the world of wrestling, Wilson managed to snag herself one of the biggest names in sports in the form of Alex Rodriguez. She and the baseball star dated for close to four years but split-up after A-Rod decided he wanted to move on. Too bad for him, Torrie’s in her 40s and still looks as good as she’s ever looked.
No other WWE Diva has generated more hatred and controversy throughout their career than Melina has. Mike Knox was her second ever boyfriend. The two dated before Melina got into wetting. That lasted a while but her longest and perhaps most well documented relationship was with John Morrison. The two had an on and off affair for 11 years. In that time, rumors that she and Batista were seeing each other hit the web. She still to this day denies it, but given how rocky her relationship with Morrison was at the time it wouldn’t be impossible.
3. Nikki Bella
While her sister is living the married life, Nikki Bella is still trying her luck in the dating market. The duo might be similar in most aspects of their lives, but their love lives are vastly different. Nikki’s first major relationship within the WWE was with Dolph Ziggler. The two saw each other for several years though the exact timeline is something of a mystery. They were spotted together as early as 2008, and the whole thing came to an end sometime around 2010 or 2011. It didn’t take long for her to find another major WWE superstar to keep her company. A year after her relationship with Ziggler ended she ended up with heavyweight John Cena and the two have been dating ever since.
2. Mickie James
The current TNA star and former five-time WWE Women’s champ has quite a long track record when it comes to dating colleagues. Her first fling was with Jake Damien when the two were just starting out. Her next documented fling came with CM Punk when they were both in the indies. That same year she ended up with Joey Mercury but the two couldn’t make it work out and ended it a year later. She had another short fling with Kenny Dykstra a few years later and the two apparently broke up after James’ apparent affair with John Cena (his name appears a lot on this list, doesn’t it?) She seems to have finally found stability with Nick Aldis (aka Magnus) and the two are currently married and had their first child last year.
1. Stacy Keibler
Outside of the wrestling world, Stacy Keibler has had an impressive track record with some of Hollywood’s biggest stars. The former Baltimore Ravens cheerleader has dated a handful of stars along with a couple of WWE stars. She dated David Flair, son of Ric, for a period of time early on in her WCW career. She then moved on and dated Test for a couple years and while rumors that the two were still dating surfaced a few years after their break up, she quickly put those to rest. After having dated guys like George Clooney and Jamie Foxx, Stacy finally settled down in 2013 with entrepreneur Jared Pobre and the two now have a child together.
