10 WWE Couples Who Found Lasting Love & Marriage
Brie Bella & Daniel Bryan
The Bella Twins were once the object of Daniel Bryan’s attention on WWE TV. Now, Brie Bella owns Bryan’s heart, as seen on Total Divas and Total Bellas.
Brie has been there every step of the way for Bryan as he went through the depression of having to leave his career in the ring behind him … or so we thought. Bryan recently returned to the ring after receiving the green light from WWE doctors.
During his return on SmackDown Live as an in-ring performer, Bryan said Brie was the one who kept him motivated to never give up on his dream. The couple married in 2014 and have a daughter, Birdie Joe.
Natalya (Natalie Neidhart) & Tyson Kidd (Theodore James Wilson)
Prior to signing WWE contracts, Natalya and Tyson Kidd were an item. They grew up childhood sweethearts, as Kidd was a family friend of the famed Hart wrestling family in Calgary.
On the first seasons of Total Divas, the ups and downs of their relationship were featured. However, they worked through them and tied the knot, with cameras capturing the event on the show. The couple doesn't have kids yet — unless you count their beloved cats.
Today, Natalya, queen of selfies, remains active on Raw, while Kidd works behind the scenes in a producer role.
Renee Young (Renee Jane Paquette) & Dean Ambrose (Jonathan David Good)
Renee Young came to WWE as a host for its many programs, but quickly became a popular personality in her own right. She caught the attention of the fans and one certain Superstar in Dean Ambrose.
The low-key couple managed to keep their relationship relatively quiet since 2013. That is, until Young joined Total Divas. But her stint on the show as a regular cast member didn’t long, just enough to give viewers a glimpse into this couple's unique dynamic.
Young and Ambrose married quietly in 2017. We're sure the past few months have been a bummer for the two, with Ambrose on the injured-reserved list while Young is on the road. Although, they do say that absence makes the heart grow fonder ...
Maryse (Maryse Ouelett) & The Miz (Mike Mizanin)
The Miz met Maryse when she was a participant in the Diva Search competition well over a decade ago. Miz was hosting, and though Maryse didn’t win the competition, she found herself with a WWE contract.
After a few-year absence, Maryse returned to the company to stand by the side with Miz in the Miztourage. They feuded with Cena and Nikki Bella heading into a match at WrestleMania.
Miz and Maryse recently celebrated the birth of their first child, Monroe Sky, which is surely to be featured on the upcoming USA Network docuseries Miz & Mrs later this year.
Naomi (Trinity McCray) & Jimmy Uso (Jonathan Solofa Fatu)
Naomi and Jimmy Uso could have their own sitcom given their interactions on Total Divas. Viewers of the E! reality show have watched their relationship blossom. They married in 2014, and Naomi became stepmom to Uso’s two children.
The husband and wife have teamed together in the ring in the Mixed Match Challenge. With both on Smackdown Live, Naomi has also been part of some storyline developments between the Usos and the Bludgeon Brothers.
Maria Kanellis & Mike Bennett
Maria Kanellis made a name for herself in WWE after the inaugural Diva Search, branching out into other projects such as Celebrity Apprentice. She began dating Bennett in 2011, and the two began to work together onscreen in Ring of Honor, New Japan Pro wrestling and Impact Wrestling. This led to their eventual arrival into WWE last year.
Kanellis has stood by Bennett as he battled an addiction to prescription drugs. They married in 2014, and had their first child, Fredrica "Freddie" Moon.
Lana (Catherine Joy Perry) & Rusev (Miroslav Barnyashev)
Long before Rusev Day, Rusev and Lana found each other within WWE’s developmental system. They were brought together on television, as Lana the “Ravishing Russian,” and Rusev the “Bulgarian Brut.”
Blonde beauty Lana grew in popularity despite her villainous ways with the beastly Rusev, though viewers saw a new side to Rusev while watching his relationship with Lana.
The two have dealt with cultural clashes, “cold feet,” over-protectiveness, and some other disagreements. However, they made it to the other side and married in not only the United States but Bulgaria, as well. It was all captured for audiences of Total Divas.
Candice LeRae (Candice Dawson) & Johnny Gargano
The NXT sweethearts fell in love based on their love of pro wrestling and all things Disney. Johnny Gargano was first signed to WWE after spending years on the independent scene. Candice LeRae took a similar path, and was officially signed earlier this year. LeRae has been an important part of Gargano’s recent storyline with rival Andrade “Cien” Almas and Zelina Vega.
The couple married in 2016 at — where else — Disneyland.
Michelle McCool & The Undertaker (Mark Calaway)
Michelle McCool was another product of the Diva Search and parlayed that opportunity into multiple women’s championship reigns. Of course, The Undertaker built up his own legacy and legendary career within WWE since his debut in 1990. Each has been divorced in the past, but the two married in 2010, and had a daughter named Kaia Faith in 2012.
Although Undertaker has no social media, and the couple has never appeared on TV together, if the rare social media posts from McCool are any indication, they remain happy.
Stephanie McMahon & Triple H (Paul Michael Levesque)
It’s a case where art became life after Stephanie McMahon first joined Triple H as his onscreen wife. It was a way to build the rivalry between her dad Vince and Triple H, but it ended up building to the extent that late 1999 into 2000 went on to become the “McMahon Helmsley Era.” The two married for real in 2003, and now have three daughters: Aurora Rose, Murphy Claire and Vaughn Evelyn Levesque.
Stephanie and Triple H teamed for the first time at WrestleMania this year, against Ronda Rousey and Kurt Angle.
Along with duties in front of the camera, McMahon is the Chief Brand Officer for WWE, and Triple H is the Executive Vince President of Talent, Live Events and Creative for WWE. Despite their busy schedules, they find time to work out together late at night.
Those who have followed the love affair between WWE Superstars John Cena and Nikki Bella were floored by the recent news that the couple were ending their relationship after six years.
The couple's public romance had been chronicled on Total Divas, Total Bellas and WWE TV, and really exploded when the leader of Cenation went as far as popping the question to Nikki before a worldwide audience at WrestleMania 33.
Cena and Bella may have gone their separate ways, but fear not: There are still many examples to give fans reason to believe in love within the WWE universe, and one can take solace in the Superstar duos remaining in wedded bliss.
