The personal lives of wrestlers are very public, with the popularity of social media and wrestling websites on the rise. We usually know what’s going on in the love lives of wrestlers, whether we want to or not. The majority of wrestling couples share it due to the fact that no one really wants to keep something that big a secret, let alone put in the work that goes along with it. A few couples try their best to keep it under wraps due to the public reaction to it. As you’ll see in this list, some relationships lead to nothing but drama.
WWE is the only major noteworthy wrestling promotion in North America. The amount of coverage it gets makes the wrestling relationships going on outside of the ring huge stories. A large percentage of the roster has started to date within the company. It makes sense considering you find out common interests and develop chemistry with the people you spend the most time around. That has led to a plethora of relationships. Some have their relationships also work on-screen, others make it well known and a few are still trying to hide it. We’ll look at them all with fifteen of the top WWE romantic couples in WWE today.
The most obvious relationship is the most important one currently in the wrestling world. Triple H and Stephanie McMahon started dating shortly after a television storyline put them together as husband and wife. Life imitated art with the two getting married and having three daughters. The relationship between Triple H and Stephanie is very important to the storylines on television these days despite Triple H not being a full-time character.
12 Natalya and Tyson Kidd
Natalya and Tyson Kidd have known each other since early childhood growing up in the Hart household. As the daughter of Jim Neidhart, Natalya is officially part of the legendary Hart wrestling family. Kidd is not a Hart but grew up with them making him an unofficial member of the family long before marrying Natalya. They clearly cared about each other at a young age and both had the same goal of the wrestling dream.
11 Alexa Bliss and Murphy
Romance not only takes place on the WWE main roster but down in NXT. Alexa Bliss saw the biggest break of both her professional and personal life when she became the manager of Blake and Murphy. A heel turn allowed her to try a new character that made her a valued commodity in NXT. The main reason she is a huge player in the women’s division on Smackdown Live is her amazing work as a heel.
10 Cesaro and Sara Del Rey
Cesaro is one of the most beloved underutilized wrestlers in the industry today. WWE may never view him as a main-eventer but at least we are able to appreciate his art in the squared circle. One relatively hidden fact about Cesaro is the fact that he is dating WWE producer and trainer Sara Del Rey. Die hard fans know her for the incredible work in Ring of Honor and various independent promotions.
Total Divas changed the landscape of wrestling romances. WWE wanted to showcase it on the reality show about the lives of the female performers on the roster. Naomi and Jimmy Uso have one of the primary relationships that has been featured on the show. They are officially married now and the show gave an insight into Naomi’s new life as a stepmother to Jimmy’s children of a prior relationship.
9 The Undertaker and Michelle McCool
The most shocking relationship to realize exists in the wrestling world has to be The Undertaker and Michelle McCool. A fifteen year age gap makes it difficult to believe but the two have been together for many years now. They met on Smackdown during the original brand split and began dating. McCool chose to retire from the wrestling business but it didn’t impact their relationship. Undertaker taking a reduced schedule also gave them enough time for their home life.
8 Sasha Banks and Mikaze
Sasha Banks is arguably the most talented female star in WWE today. The women’s revolution has led to wrestling fans taking the division seriously rather than viewing them as eye candy. Banks rose to the top of NXT for her incredible matches and it led to popularity on the main roster as she continues to make history. One thing about Banks’ personality is she likes to keep her personal life very private.
7 Dana Brooke and Dolph Ziggler
One of the lesser known relationships in WWE today sees Dolph Ziggler date Dana Brooke. They have been an item since Brooke was in the Performance Center training to improve as a performer. Dana joined Ziggler on the main roster earlier this year but they were separated with the brand split returning. Ziggler is currently the Intercontinental Champion on Smackdown Live and Brooke is part of the women’s division on Raw.
6 Carmella and Big Cass
The NXT careers of Big Cass and Carmella gave them both everything they could have dreamed of when entering the Performance Center. Carmella, Cass and Enzo Amore were all placed together in a unit with Cass and Enzo being the popular tag team. They had Carmella as their manager for matches, but she also got the opportunity to wrestle her own matches.
5 The Miz and Maryse
The Miz and Maryse have dated for a long time going back to the days of Miz struggling as a singles star trying to get noticed and Maryse being a Divas Champion. A lot has changed since then but they are finally on television together now after all those years. WWE considered making Maryse the manager of Miz during the earlier time frame but he was charismatic on his own so she went to Ted DiBiase Jr.’s side instead.
4 Daniel Bryan and Brie Bella
Daniel Bryan and Brie Bella may both be retired from in-ring competition, but they are still very much strong parts of WWE. The two started to get to know each other during a horrible storyline that saw Brie and Nikki Bella both try to bed Bryan in a bet assuming he was a virgin. It was revealed at the end of the story that they confused the word “vegan” with virgin. The only good thing to come from it is Bryan and Brie forming a personal relationship.
3 Rusev and Lana
Rusev arrived on the main roster with Lana by his side and both performers worked perfect together. The duo matured into an elite heel act that made both stars for the company. WWE tried separating them with everyone involved failing in the aftermath. They were forced to reunite Rusev and Lana getting both performers back to their best by being a package item on Raw.
Dean Ambrose is the most private wrestler in WWE. The main event star refuses to participate on social media as one of the few wrestlers without a Twitter page. Ambrose clearly hates to talk about his private life as seen in various interviews. The news of Ambrose dating Renee Young in his personal life is something he likely didn’t want coming out. Various photos of the two in public surfaced making it a now known fact.
2 Paige and Alberto Del Rio
The most controversial couple in the wrestling industry today has to be Paige and Alberto Del Rio. No one would have ever predicted this romance with it shocking the wrestling world. The fifteen year age gap of Del Rio being 39 years old and Paige being just 24 years old is staggering, but they appear to be committed to each other. WWE however was not happy with this and tried to break them up.
1 John Cena and Nikki Bella
John Cena is the biggest star in wrestling and it was huge news when we realized he was dating Nikki Bella. The major selling point for Total Divas was seeing Nikki and Cena outside of the ring. Cena and Nikki appear to be in love, but Cena has expressed a strong disdain in ever getting married or having children with her. Many believe Nikki’s success in recent years is a product of Cena’s influence.
Rumors circulated that Cena stepped in when the company was going to have Nikki lose the Divas Championship to Charlotte. The title change was postponed a week so Nikki could break AJ Lee’s record as the longest reigning champion. Nikki and Cena continue their relationship working together on the Smackdown Live brand. They branched out in the reality show world with the spin-off of Total Divas being Total Bellas showing a more in-depth look into the relationship. Cena actually had house rules that Nikki was forced to follow but it didn’t appear to hinder her love of him.
