If you are a fan of pro wrestling, you probably already have your favorite wrestlers that you know EVERYTHING about (John Cena is personally my favorite), but do you know about the significant others behind the wrestling warriors? Let’s look at 17 WWE wives and their husbands!
Sable (aka Rena Lesnar)
Sable is considered to be the classic WWE wife. She was one of the first WWE Divas, and she’s pretty legendary, from her blonde hair to her fierce moves. When it came to finding her partner, she didn’t have to go too far. She found him where she spends most of her time; in the ring!
… married to Brock Lesnar.
In 2006, she married fellow wrestler Brock Lesnar. Lesnar is ten years younger than Sable, but with an impressive list of accomplishments, including posing for Playboy, we don’t think Brock minded. Now that she has retired, she still can be called by her show name “Sable,” but she’s also known as Rena Lesnar. Now pushing 50, Sable is still considered sexy, despite her age. It’s always a win-win situation for Brock when he enters the ring, because even if he loses the match, he gets to go home to her.
The Undertaker is one of the most well-known and mysterious WWE stars to ever enter the world of wrestling. He keeps his private life out of the spotlight and doesn’t like to reveal much about himself, but there’s one thing that he’s been happy to show off over the last few years – his beautiful wife and former Diva, Michelle McCool.
… married to The Undertaker
The Undertaker has been posting shots of himself with his wife everywhere from enjoying the holidays to having fun at sporting events, the photos show how happy they are as a couple. But who wouldn’t be happy in her presence? They got married in 2010 and since then, Michelle has retired from wrestling and they had a daughter together.
Many, if not all of the wrestlers, lucked out with the women they get to call theirs. Wrestling may be staged but the commitment to be with these hardcore wrestlers must be real. Kudos to the wives that put up with them.
(Eden) Brandi Runnels
Brandi Runnels’ fans have always known her as Eden. Before getting together with husband Cody Rhodes this exotic beauty got her entertainment start as a local news reporter and anchor. She eventually moved to Miami before landing an opportunity at WWE as an announcer.
Holding a master’s degree in Broadcast Journalism from the University of Miami, Brandi was also a competitive figure skater from age 4 to 21. Being full of surprises, she has made quite the career for herself throughout the years with her wrestling husband.
… married to Cody Rhodes
Brandi Runnels quickly climbed the ranks; she started announcing minor bouts but soon moved on to the Main Event, WWE SmackDown, and countless backstage interviews. It was during her rise to fame that she met her husband, wrestler Cody Rhodes, and the two have been devoted to one another ever since.
Former WWE Diva and French Canadian cutie, model Maryse married The Miz in 2014, but is now better known as Mrs. Maryse Mizanin. What makes their relationship so strong? These two like to have fun and attribute their strong relationship to equal devotion. It doesn’t get much better than that!
She spent many years modeling and even won Miss Hawaiian Tropic Canada in 2003. She started her modeling career as a beauty pageant contestant. In 2007, she was on the cover of Playboy Girls of Canada calendar. Let’s learn more about her marriage.
… married to The Miz
It’s no secret how the Miz feels about his wife, all you have to do is check out his social media posts; he absolutely adores her, which makes them an even more lovable couple! While she’s retired from WWE, you will more than likely find her ringside, cheering on her husband.
With someone as stunning as that cheering you on as you try and fight in front of 50,000 people, chances are you have a boost of confidence because you don’t want to look silly in front of your wife and the fans. Good luck out there, The Miz.
Denise and Christian’s passionate fling began in a pretty unusual way. While Canadian wrestler Christian was touring England, he spotted a gorgeous German model named Denise. This chance meeting turned into a 15-year relationship! Talk about a one in a million romance.
… married to Christian Hartmann
In 2001, Christian and Denise were married and the two have been going strong ever since, eventually bringing a daughter into this world. This love story just goes to show that you never know what will happen when you meet someone thousands of miles from home. Christian and Denise are pretty grateful to have crossed paths when they did!
Rebecca Curci Michaels
Rebecca Curci Michaels spent a short amount of time as a Nitro Girl when she was participating in the WWE. However, her time in the wrestling world ended quickly, but not before she managed to meet Shawn Michaels. He spotted her, and after some courting, they quickly fell in love.
We wonder if she understood how much of a wrestling legend Michaels was in his prime. He had so many fans and everyone would tune in for his matches. The Heartbreak Kid was wrestling royalty and even his peers acknowledged that.
… married to The Heartbreak Kid
Rebecca Curci and Shawn Michaels got married in 1999, and had a quick Las Vegas ceremony. Rebecca decided that she didn’t need a big fancy wedding, so it was off to Vegas for a fun, party-filled time! And it looks like even without the traditional ceremony, they have been happily together ever since. The couple have two children together.
Was his nickname any sort of turn off? We’re sure she didn’t want her heart to be broken but it seems that she didn’t take it seriously. She probably asked him about it prior to them getting serious.
If you are a WWE fan, then you know that Sarah Backman is pretty striking. She is originally from Sweden and has an impressive physique along with gorgeous blonde hair. She is also a former eight-time World Arm Wrestling Champion, so it probably doesn’t come as a surprise that she was drawn to a WWE wrestler.
… married to Bo Dallas
She almost made it into the wrestling world once she had been recruited for NXT, but unfortunately, she didn’t make it to the pros. Regardless of that outcome, she’s happy to continue working on her physique alongside her husband and you can bet on her showing up ringside to root him on!
These two would make a pretty strong force in the ring together. One’s a pro wrestler and the other is a world champion arm wrestler. That might be one of the fiercest tandems in married couples history.
If you are a fan of the E! reality series Total Divas, then you know all about Naomi Uso. She shot into the spotlight after snagging a spot on this popular show but her role on the show didn’t last long. Unfortunately, her decision to tie the knot with fellow wrestler Jimmy Uso jeopardized her spot on the show. It looks like becoming Mrs. Uso was too boring for fans and that led her to be kicked off the cast of Total Divas.
… married to Jimmy Uso
In early 2017, Naomi won the women’s title and Jimmy was there to cheer her on in the amazing moment. The two could have equally shared the glory together but they came up short in the tag team match. As you see them celebrate together, Jimmy cracks a joke that she doesn’t know how to put the belt on her waist. With all the commotion about wrestling being so fake and what not, it’s great to see behind the scenes moments where it’s real or at least it feels real.
Natalya and Tyson Kidd are a couple constantly engrossed in drama. Whether they are together, apart, fighting, or making up, you can see it all on the E! show Total Divas. And while this is constant drama for the couple, E! Network absolutely loves their tumultuous relationship (and the ratings it brings in!). They are desperate to make sure Natalya (“Nattie”) stays on the show. And with a girl who is this gorgeous, it might be in your best interest not to upset her too much because it will be hard to get on her good side.
… married to Tyson Kidd
This couple has been together since 2001 and their wedding was even shown on Total Divas. When you’ve been together for as long as Natalya and Tyson have, you know that they will make sure they put in a great effort to make sure things work out. Because if you don’t, someone else will get what was once yours and we think Tyson knows how lucky he is to have her and he doesn’t want that to happen at all.
Everyone who is anyone knows who Stephanie McMahon is – if you don’t know who she is, then you aren’t a real WWE fan! She is the daughter of WWE Chairman and CEO Vince McMahon, which makes her wrestling royalty. She’s had a part in all of the different aspects of the wrestling world so her presence is undeniable. McMahon holds power and beauty which can be a lethal combination in this world. Luckily, she has a man who has power himself but more physical strength and some power to pull some strings.
… married to Triple H
She obviously spends so much of her time within WWE that when it came to her love life, she looked to the ring and quickly found wrestler Triple H. While things started as a bit of a scripted on-screen love affair, it soon blossomed into a real, unscripted marriage. Need proof? They have been together for over a decade and have three children together. Sounds like true love! And what better place to find someone you love than at a workplace like that? You get to be with one another whenever you want, one of the sweetest deals.
Jessica Lockhart and Chris Jericho are a couple who have been married for 15 years! They first met in high school and have three children together, but there is no denying that they’ve had their share of drama. The issue has always been their personal and professional involvements in the wrestling industry. Many men who work in a profession where gorgeous women are constantly prancing around in skimpy outfits are accused of (and sometimes guilty of) adultery. The simplest yet most challenging thing is remembering that you have someone to go home to so don’t fall for the skimpy outfits.
… married to Chris Jericho
There have been a few rumors floating around about Jericho getting too close to the Divas, but gossip seekers eventually moved on because Jessica and Chris have stood tall as a rock-solid couple. Jericho is so devoted to his wife that her name is tattooed on his ring finger. So ring or no ring, it is plain to see his commitment runs deep! It takes a lot of effort to make a marriage work in the real world, but when one partner maintains a hectic performance schedule, it is even more difficult. But no matter what happens, these two continue to make it work!
Hulk Hogan is definitely a strong personality, and his relationships have been in the public eye. His wife of many years, Linda Hogan, eventually got sick of catering to his big personality and they split in 2007. Hogan quickly moved on to a much-younger model and the two share plenty of public intimate moments together that can be seen all over online sites. That is just one of the perks that come with being with one of the most legendary wrestlers of all time.
… married to Hulk Hogan
Hogan is over 20 years older than McDaniel but that didn’t stop them from exploring their connection. After three years of dating, they decided to tie the knot. So many people and fans of Hogan’s thought McDaniel was just a rebound fling but the duo has been together for about five years now! It looks like after a long marriage and a tumultuous divorce, there was a happily ever after ending for Hogan after all. And not wanting to go through another divorce can serve as motivation to make things work this time as well!
Jackie Gayda married Charlie Haas in 2005. They are both wrestlers and the couple has since created quite the family unit. Both are semi-retired wrestlers who make occasional appearances on WWE. Their focus is solely on their family and they’re nutrition store, which is located in Texas. If you are ever in Texas, make sure you go check out their store “ Custom Muscle Nutrition and Smoothie Shop.”
… married to Charlie Haas
It is safe to say that both of their physiques would encourage any customer to buy whatever supplement they recommended. And can you believe Jackie has had four children? In the world of often dramatic wrestling relationships, these two have been stable and happy for an impressive ten years.
Charlie was caught up in a steroid scandal in 2007 when it was found he was taking illegal substances stanozolol, nandrolone and a few others. He came out and said he thought they were legal and that he was taking them for maintenance after having both of his knees reconstructed.
Before Karen Jarrett was a wrestler, she worked as an exotic dancer, and she has some revealing photos on the web that can attest her exotic dancing path.But that didn’t stop her from becoming a beast in the ring. She was first introduced as Kurt Angle’s wife, and the two were seen doing regular couples appearances in the ring. Unfortunately, their relationship ended, but Karen eventually stepped back into the ring and she did so with a new ring on her finger.
…married to Jeff Jarrett
Karen is happily married to Jeff Jarrett and stays busy by being a mother of two. Despite being over 40, she shows no signs of slowing down; she’s in the best shape she’s ever been in and is happy with her role as mom, wife, and wrestler.
Wrestler Booker T and his wife Sharmell wanted to be known as the king and queen of the wrestling (all you have to do is know their nicknames!) Booker Huffman was known as King Booker (and Booker T), and his wife wrestled as Queen Sharmell. It’s no surprise the king and queen would find each other!
By claiming to be king and queen, that puts a target on your back so they had to bring their best in the ring every match because the challengers were ready to show them that they were not king and queen.
…married to Booker T
In 2005, the couple married. Afterward, they shuffled between organizations before both semi-retiring a couple of years later. Instead of advancing their wrestling careers, they decided they wanted their focus to be on their family. This royal couple of wrestling settled down and grew their kingdom by welcoming twins in 2010.
Those twins will probably be raised to be warriors in their own right having parents like this. They were probably born in a fighting stance and took off the umbilical cords themselves.
Talk about a power couple! Nikki Bella and her longtime beau John Cena are both well respected WWE wrestlers, and they even have a reality show together, Total Bellas!, that was just renewed for a new season. These two might be the biggest couple in wrestling history and we hope they have many years together.
… married to John Cena
John Cena, born John Felix Anthony Cena Jr., debuted on WWE’s main roster in 2002. He’s been crowned a WWE champion twelve times. Nikki Bella (Stephanie Nicole Garcia-Colace) is a member of the SmackDown brand. In 2015, Pro Wrestling Illustrated named her #1 on its “Female 50” list.
The two have been dating since 2012 and Cena just recently proposed to her during a huge event, Wrestlemania 33! Asked about the proposal and if she had said no, he responded brilliantly: “We’ve been together for about four and half years and I figured at that point if I was to go down in flames, I would go down swinging.”
As we have worked our way down this list, you can see it is pretty common for Divas and wrestlers to link up, and AJ Lee and CM Punk are at the top of that list! AJ Lee is known for being pint-sized and she holds the record of the longest reigning Divas Championship.
She may look innocent but her feistiness can sneak up on you. She is for sure one tough cookie.
… married to CM Punk
