10 real life WWE couples outside the realm of Total Divas
Plenty of relationships are entirely fabricated to cause shock and sometimes disgust amongst viewers. Yet wrestling can be inspired by real affairs. As we move into the age of social media, it is more and more difficult to maintain kayfabe. There are relationships between wrestlers that did not make it into any scripted events. This article deals with relationships that have played out in the squared circle — either a mirror of a real love story or as a strange scripted affair.
Miroslav Barnyashev, better known as Rusev, is a Bulgarian powerlifter turned pro-wrestler. The couple married in During his long and well-documented career, there were various rumors of hook ups with his female co-stars. One such suspected relationship was with Maria Kanellis, now married to fellow wrestler Michael Bennett. Backstage, Maria was shown to be nervous about the match and Cena was caught on camera kissing her to make her feel better.
Thought to be a staged moment for the storyline especially as Maria was dating CM Punk at the timeit still might explain the famous rift between the Bellas and Maria. The self-proclaimed hippie couple, with their love of clean eating and recycling, recently gave birth to their first daughter, Birdie. In many ways, the relationship is the sort which makes many viewers jealous, but the pairing started off as an unlikely match.
Not unusually, their love story began with a romantic storyline in the ring.
In an awkward setup, the Bella Twins teamed up with Daniel Bryan after mishearing Bryan talk about being a vegan and thinking he'd never had relations. The twins aimed to see who would sleep with him first. Saved by John Cena, Eve thanked him with a kiss. The storyline ended with Eve admitting she had never loved Zack and been using him for publicity. It led to a pretty strong period of Eve as villainess but did not do a lot for Zack who remained at lower-tier status on the roster for some years after.
She moved to the independent wrestling circle where she met Michael Bennet and the two began dating. Mike had been wrestling the independent circuit since and the pairing teamed up in the ring.
They debuted as heels, with their obnoxiously close bond acting as their brand. It certainly irked audiences sufficiently. Sadly, the push did not really get off the ground before Maria got pregnant this year. It is possible the pair will return to WWE in the future but for now, love in the ring is on hold. During an episode of Live, it was revealed that Alexander was dating Alicia Fox. When Alexander lost to Noam Dar and Dar dedicated his victory to Fox, the pair began feuding over Alicia in a classic love triangle.
After Fox lost Alexander a match, he eventually broke it off with the former Divas Champion but fans were not very invested. The love triangle angle has been done to death and this threesome was obviously scripted. The pair were one of the more wholesome parts of reality show Total Divas, but were dropped after their marriage, possibly due to not being as exciting as other dysfunctional couples.
At around the same time, Naomi was embroiled in a kayfabe love triangle in the ring with her husband and the Miz. The A Lister was offering her help with her singing career, causing jealousy to flair in her heel husband.
The couple have dynamic in-ring chemistry and brought humor to the match against Goldust and Mandy Rose. The pair proved they were Champions separately and equally successful in tandem.

Her name is Chelsea Green, although frequent viewers of Impact Wrestling we know you're out there somewhere will know her better as Laurel Van Ness. The two of them have been an item for a little under a year now and who knows, perhaps their relationship could lead to one of them leaving their current employers to join their rivals. That came to what we can only assume was a messy end since Morgan posted some not so cryptic social media posts suggesting that the former Cruiserweight Champion had been cheating on her.
What you might not know is that now Morgan has seemingly moved on to another cruiserweight, the first ever United Kingdom Champion Tyler Bate. It started with some pretty public flirting between the two on Twitter and now the Superstars have been pictured together quite a few times. Morgan could definitely do better than Amore and it seems as if she has done already with Bate. In fact both of them are Superstars on the show and before they signed with WWE they actually wrestled each other on the independent scene, not many husband and wife pairings can say that.
While there are quite a few wrestler pairings in the industry, many of which we will cover in this article, there probably aren't any more beloved right now than Gargano and Lerae. The two of them just seem to be the nicest people you could ever hope to meet, both inside and outside of the ring.
They're currently tagging together from time to time on live events, here's hoping that transfers to some televised shows some time in the near future. Featured Today 8 Seth Rollins via youtube. That's embarrassing enough but even worse when you find out that Rollins was with someone else at the time.

While the female Superstars on the roster are perhaps the most talented bunch the business has ever seen, there are people in the company who are partly responsible for them being that good. Sarah Del Ray is one of those people.
