It's not uncommon for professional wrestlers to be in relationships with their colleagues. People often meet their partners at their place of work and, considering wrestlers travel with and spend more time together than those in any other profession, it's to be expected.
Dating between fellow wrestlers may have happened a lot more than we knew about in years past without social media, but it has particularly increased now with larger women's rosters in WWE. Even in the 1990s, there would only be a handful of women in the company, so it's not like male wrestlers had many options.
Mixing work and pleasure isn't always a great idea, but for some in WWE it has worked out thus far. Others haven't been as lucky. Here is our 5 top best 1. Triple H and Stephanie McMahon
The love-story of Triple H and Stephanie McMahon is a topic of its own. They have been married for over a decade and have three daughters: Aurora, Murphy, and Vaughn.Triple H started dating Stephanie as part of a storyline in 1999, which developed feelings between them in real-life too.
By the time The Game had proposed her female boss, they were already married on Raw and a year before their marriage, they divorced in kayfabe. Pretty confusing, isn’t it? But this played a major role in making them a couple in reality.Fast forward to 2020 and Triple H and Stephanie McMahon are still going strong. They often share their pictures together on their Social Media profiles and seem to be the happiest couples in all of WWE.
#2. The Undertaker and Michelle McCool
Despite a 15 year age gap between them, The Undertaker and Michelle McCool worked through the odds. They have been married since 2010 and also have a daughter together whose name is Kaia Faith Calaway.
The inaugural Divas Champion of WWE also gathered some backstage heat due to her relationship with The Deadman because back then, there was an unwritten rule that didn’t allow wrestlers to date fellow wrestlers in WWE. Michelle also claimed to have stress because of this, but in the end, everything worked well.
A few months ago, The Undertaker was interviewed by pastor Ed Young, where he wept while talking about his wife, Michelle. She often posts pictures of her husband on Instagram, where The Phenom can be seen happy and out-of-character. The real-life Undertaker is quite different from the one we see on television and it wasn’t something the fans had expected as he rarely breaks kayfabe.
#3. CM Punk and AJ Lee
CM Punk returned to WWE after a 6-year long absence from the company. Even though Punk doesn’t work for them, as he is employed by FOX, he still will be counted as a WWE superstar after appearing at Backstage. Punk started dating AJ Lee in 2013, again thanks to a WWE storyline that kicked things off between the two. A year later, they were engaged and then tied knots on June 13, 2014. What was supposed to be the happiest day for Punk, became the worst day of his life as he got fired on his wedding day by WWE.
This made him lose interest in wrestling and announce his retirement. After some time, Lee also left the company and retired from wrestling like her husband. However, with Punk working for WWE Backstage, we can expect her to make a return soon. She may not return as a wrestler but instead, she could work with Punk on Backstage. But the odds of happening that are still minimal.
#4. Daniel Bryan and Brie Bella
Daniel Bryan and Brie Bella have been featured on WWE Television as a couple for a long time. Even though Brie doesn’t work for WWE as a wrestler anymore, since she’s retired, it hasn’t affected her relationship with Bryan. The couple still gets to share quality time with each other on a regular basis.
Their relationship started after WWE had aligned them in an on-screen storyline which later took a turn and made them a real-life couple.
Both engaged in 2013 and were married in April 2014. Their first child, Birdie Joe Danielson, came into this world two years ago, which made Bella busier than ever. Even though Bella doesn’t appear on WWE as much as she used to do before, she still appears regularly on Total Divas, along with her twin sister Nikki Bella.
#5. Jon Moxley (Dean Ambrose) and Renee Young
Jon Moxley and Renee Young started dating privately (in October 2013) and it wasn’t until 2015 when their relationship was officially confirmed by Young during an interview. Although, the fans had started speculating about the same long before that. The WWE Universe knew something is going on between these two personalities and their guess was right.
Moxley and Young are one of the most beloved couples of WWE, and because of the fans’ liking towards them, they also won the Favorite WWE Couple title in 2017.
The couple wedded in April 2017, and since then have been enjoying their married life. Both superstars now work for different promotions (Moxley in AEW and Young in WWE), and also have different roles, but it doesn’t seem to be affecting their relationship. There you have it folks!!
