Wrestling is full of drama, pain, suffering, fighting, but also a whole lot of love. On top of the intricate story lines, there are the actual lives of the wrestlers themselves. Despite the fact that these behemoths of men (and women) are paid professionals, we sometimes forget that they fall in love and get married just like any other actor or sports star in the world. The only thing is that these are humans who are in the peak of human physical fitness. Here are 30 of the strongest WWE couples.
Sable and Brock Lesnar
Considered to be the typical, classic WWE wrestler wife, Sable met her husband Brock Lesnar in the ring, and stuck around until he gave her one. The two got married in 2006, this despite the fact that Sable is a full decade younger than her husband. Believe it or not, Sable is pushing 50 and Brock 60. But they are still going strong, just like Brock’s biceps. The two still look like they love each other as much as they love working out.
The Undertaker and McCool
The Undertaker is easily one of the most well known wrestlers in the sport of professional wrestling. But he is not the camera hogging, spotlight craving person many other celebrities are in their normal lives, preferring to keep his life prive. That is except when he is showing off his wife Michelle McCool and his daughter. He just can not seem to put the camera down when he is around the.
Brandi Runnels and Cody Rhodes
Brandi Runnels was a professional news anchor for a local news station before she became Eden and jumped into the world of professional wrestling. She also jumped into love head first, meeting wrestler Cody Rhodes. The two have not been able to get enough of each other ever since. The two got married, and now, just like with other wrestling couples, the two are written into wrestling sagas together. They probably get out a lot of their aggression with each other that way.
Maryse and The Miz
These two lovebirds were also both in the WWE, but French Canadian Maryse got out and became a model. Maryse and The Miz are really close, and it is possible to see how deep their love truly goes just by checking out any of Miz’s social media pages. She is always by her husband’s side, and while he is in the ring, she is always right there, watching and cheering on her husband.
Christian and Denise Hartmann
Denise and Christian first met when Christian was travelling around Europe and happened to spot Denise, who was a German model at the time. This kicked off a romance which would last over 15 years, and lead to the wrestler marrying his Bavarian princess in 2001. The two now have a child together. It is crazy and just goes to show that you may need to travel thousands of miles to find your soulmate.
Rebecca and The Heartbreak Kid
Michaels began her WWE career as a Nitrol Girl, but she quickly left that life in order to pursue other passions. However, she did not leave before meeting Shawn Michaels and immediately fall for him. KNown as the Heartbreak Kid, there was a lot of speculation as to whether or not the wrestler would go on to break this girl’s heart. It turns out he didn’t and the two wed in 1999.
Sarah Backman and Bo Dallas
Eight time world arm wrestling champion Sarah Backman from Sweden almost became a star on the professional wrestling circuit, but she did not quite make it. However, it did not really matter, as she ended up meeting her soulmate in the ring in any case in the form of Bo Dallas. There is no doubt in our minds that with the genes in both of these people, their kids will be ripped in and of themselves.
Naomi Uso and Jimmy Uso
Originally on the original E! Reality series Total Divas, Naomi Uso was one tough cookie. However, after meeting Jimmy Uso and falling madly in love with him, the two got married and started having a more normal life together. Unfortunately for Naomi, she got dropped from Total Divas for being too boring, and ended up going into wrestling, winning a belt alongside her husband in a tag team.
Natalya Kidd and Tyson Kidd
Natalya is another former WWE female wrestler who appeared on the E! Show about their lives, Total Divas. However, because she is so “interesting,” she has been allowed to stay on the reality show. In fact, she makes sure that her relationship with husband Tyson is so tumultuous that she is arguably the star of the show. The two even got married on the E! Sponsored program. Hopefully all the drama is for the cameras and not for real.
Stephanie McMahon and Triple H
Stephanie McMahon is the daughter of the commissioner of the WWE, Vince McMahon, which therefore makes her literally the princess of professional wrestling. She has been around it so much, and with all the guys who are literally the perfect picture of male masculinity for so long that it was inevitable that she would meet one of them and marry them. Which is true – she was scripted into falling in love with Triple H, but then it turned real.
Jessica Lockhart and Chris Jericho
This is a wrestling couple who have so far been married for well over a decade and a half. This successful relationship traces its roots to when the two were in high school together and they fell in love, never seeing anyone else since. While there have been rumors of Chris Jericho getting close to some of the WWE Divas, it is clear that these rumors are unfounded, and that Chris Jericho and Jessica Lockhart will see their marriage through to the end.
Jennifer McDaniel and Hulk Hogan
When Hulk and Linda Hogan split in 2007, both of them went on to find people who were over 20 years younger than themselves. Linda started dating one of her son’s friends, whole Hulk started dating model Jennifer McDaniel, eventually going on to marry her. It seems to this WWE power couple, age truly is just a number, and what really matters is what is on the inside.
Jackie Gayda-Haas, Charlie Haas
Jackie Gayda was a model turned wrestler and Charlie Haas was wrestling near the top of his game when the two met. They have since retired from wrestling after getting married in 2005, and after Charlie was caught using illegal steroids. In his defense, he was under the impression that the steroids were legal, and was having them administered by a doctor. Charlie and Jackie now have a nutrition store in Texas called Custom Muscle Nutrition and Smoothie Shop.
Karen Jarrett and Jeff Jarrett
Karen Jarrett had an interesting path to WWE Diva stardom, starting out as an exotic dancer before going into wrestling. She has kept with the whole wrestling thing, even dating and marrying Jeff Jarrett and having two of his children. Even though she is over 40 years of age, she still gets into the ring in order to fight it out and win. But Karen is still supportive of her husband and is there for all his fights.
Booker T and Sharmell
Booker T and Sharmell wanted to be considered wrestling royalty, and wrestling royalty they truly became. They actually had the nerve to call themselves the king and queen of wrestling, which caused everyone to want to take them off their high throne. The two would eventually get married in 2005, but would retire soon afterwards, especially once they had twins together. With a family of new royals to raise, we can see why these two do not want to do battle any longer.
Jennifer Hudson and David Otunga
This is a very interesting couple, primarily because this is a case where only one of these lovers is an actual wrestler. The other one is American Idol singing sensation Jennifer Hudson. She met David Otunga, and the two have been together ever since, taking it slow to enable their careers to blossom. Despite being engaged, the couple have not set a wedding date as of yet. But they do already have a child together.
Galina Becker and Roman Reigns
Whilst playing football at Georgia Tech, Roman Reigns met a woman he could not take his eyes off of. Two years after meeting, Reigns and Galina got engaged and then married. Reigns then became a professional wrestler, but he never let his job take away from his family. Especially now that Reigns and his wife Galina have a four year old daughter together. The wrestler even took part in the WWE’s “Take time to be a dad” day.
Catalina Hager and Jack Swagger
Catalina Hager is well known for being a very stunning person, and has even appeared in Maxim as well as FHM. She ended up marrying wrestling star Jack Swagger with whom she has two children. However, our issue is that Catalina does not really like social media, and has set her Instagram to private for some reason. Come on Catalina, the public demands to see pics of your kids, we are sure they are super cute.
CM Punk and AJ Lee
AJ Lee may be a tiny little woman, but she packs a powerful punch, having been the longest reigning Divas champion. However, she has been on the scene less ever since she met and married wrestling superstar CM Punk. In perhaps one of her cutest moments ever, AJ waited in line at her husband’s book signing one day, and when it was her turn, she yelled “I’m your biggest fan!” and gave him a big ole kiss.
John Cena and Nikki Bella
Nikki Bella met her husband international wrestling superstar John Cena when they were both wrestling, creating a WWE power couple. The two dated for several years, and in 2012, John proposed to her in front of a huge audience of people at Wrestlemania 33. They have now been married for about four years. Is this just a part of the wrestling script, or could this possibly be true love?
Samantha Rotunda and Bray Wyatt
The “Eater of Worlds” looks like a super menacing hulk of a viking man and like he could rip you from limb from limb, but did you know that he is a soft, cuddly, nice dude? At least, that is how his wife and two children know him. Bray Wyatt and his wife Samantha have been happily married for several years, and live happily with their children Kendyl and Cadyn.
Kim Marie Kessler and Randy Orton
Known as the “Apex Predator,” Randy Orton has been wrestling in the WWE for approximately a decade, and in that time, he has managed to start not one but two families. His first wife was actually his high school sweetheart Samantha Speno, with whom he had a child. Meanwhile, his current wife Kimberly Kessler is set to have a son with Orton, and the two are very happy to be together.
Wendy and AJ Styles
AJ Styles is a WWE champion and TNA legend. However, he would not have been able to become the champion were it not for the support of his wife and their four children. Despite being on the road a ton and not being able to see his family very often, they are always in his heart, especially since he made sure to give them names with the letters A and J in them.
Kori Campfield and Kofi Kingston
Kofi Kingston is a world famous professional WWE wrestler who immigrated to the United States from Ghana when he was young. He immediately fell in love with wrestling and became one of its greats. He also fell in love with a woman named Kori Campfield in 2010. The couple have since had two children together, both of whom cheer Kofi on when in the ring.
Renee Young and Dean Ambrose
Dean Ambrose is the winningest person in WWE, and has the belts to prove it. However, that did not stop him from looking for love ringside, something which he managed to do in the form of Renee Young. Young can routinely be seen holding interviews with the carious wrestlers, including with Dean. It is perhaps there that the two met. Interestingly, Young is a trained comedienne.
Karina and Kevin Owens
Kevin Owens is what is known as a “triple threat” – he knows how to dish out dirt, fight in the ring, and trash talk really well on social media. In fact, he is perhaps one of the best wrestlers in the WWE today. Using social media, we are able to see into Owens’ personal life and see how much he loves his wife Karina as well as his children. Allegedly, Karina was with Kevin from the very beginning and just starting out, and believed in him from the get-go.
Sasha Banks and Sarath Ton
This women’s WWE champion is a very private person when she is not wrestling, so it is very difficult to find any personal information on her. However, what we do know is that she is indeed married. However, unlike other wrestlers, she is not married to another wrestler, but to a costume designer named Sarath Ton. They got married just days after she won her first title.
Catalina White and Jack Swagger
Swagger is a former ECW and World Champion and has been with WWE since 2007. Although never quite finding a proper spot on the roster, Swagger has remained with the company. In this time he has also married and started a family. Swagger would wed Catalina White back in December 2010 and the couple has since welcomed two children, Knox Sterling was born back in 2011 while Presley Pearl was born last year.
Stephanie Miller and Heath Slater
After teaming up with Rhyno, Heath Slater formed one half of the first ever Smackdown Tag Team Champions. His signature moves include the Jumping Neckbreaker as well as the Slingshot Corkscrew Plancha. However, on the down low, he is also an awesome dad, having gotten married to wife Stephanie Miller, and having two daughters with her. Sometimes it is worth it for these tough guys to let out their softer sides with their significant others.
Candice LeRae and Johnny Gargano
These two lovebirds were wrestling but coming into constant contact with each other. Eventually, these two were unable to hold their love in for each other, and the two began dating. After a while of that, they wanted to make it official, and the two got married in a small, private ceremony to each other in mid 2016. The two are still going strong and fighting it out in the ring – hopefully not each other.
