Triple H and Stephanie McMahon, John Cena and Nikki Bella, Daniel Bryan and Brie Bella, and Brock Lesnar and Sable all have a few things in common. The most notable thing that these couples are known for is that they are just a few of the high-profile couples in the WWE.
These are the most well-known couples in the industry because both the male and the female partner are (or were) connected to the WWE. With such grueling schedules that require so much traveling, it’s easy to see why so many wrestling stars get into relationships with each other. However, some stars choose to pick a partner outside of the ring.
While these couples get a lot of the spotlight in the ring and even outside of the arena, there are a few WWE wives and girlfriends who are gorgeous, successful, and have never set foot inside of a wrestling ring. Outside of the power couples that everyone knows, other WWE Superstars and Legends are paired up with amazing women that stay out of the spotlight but shine all on their own. Here, we count down 20 of the hottest wrestler wives and girlfriends who aren’t associated with the WWE Divas Division.

The two got married back in 2011 and the photos are available online from their wedding photographer. The pair had a beautiful wedding set in a botanical garden. While R-Truth mainly stays quiet about his personal life, he did post a photo on Twitter in 2014 showing off his new baby girl.
19. Ric Flair Won’t Give Up
You would think that four failed marriages might hold a guy back from looking for love, but Ric Flair proves that he’s still looking, despite his divorces, with his relationship with Wendy Barlow. After four shots at love and the birth of four children, Flair has once again tried to find love with the young and beautiful Barlow. The couple reside in Charlotte, N.C., with Barlow’s four children. While it isn’t often that fans get to see an inside look at how a WWE star lives life with his family, Flair opened the doors to his personal life by making an appearance on Celebrity Wife Swap, where Barlow switched places with the late Roddy Piper’s wife, Kitty.
18. The Heartbreak Kid Settles Down

Both Michaels and Curci continue to make appearances at WWE events.
17. Cody Rhodes Finds His Match

While she never made it to the WWE Divas League, Reed did have a stint on NXT as a ring announcer by the name of Eden Stiles. She also acted as a ring announcer for WWE events.

The couple also have a daughter, and Karina updates her Instagram with adorable photos of her family, showing off the softer side of tough-guy Kevin Owens.
15. The Foleys Have Really Went the Distance
With so much traveling involved in the world of professional wrestling, it’s no wonder relationships fail so easily within the organization.

Maybe it runs in the family? Bo Dallas has a stunning wife, but she isn’t the only beautiful woman brought into the Rotunda family.

Outside of the ring, Bray is just Windham Rotunda, husband of Samantha and father of two children.
