Every vocation comes with its troubles and stress. In wrestling, one could say the dangers attached to it can be overwhelming. It should come as little surprise that some of the wrestlers are married to each other in real life.
Between the busy schedules and traveling, there would hardly be time for dating other people. The same way you notice a partner at work is the same way wrestlers notice each other and develop feelings. They are humans after all.
When some of these guys were interviewed, they confessed that they had had a series of relationships. Others said that they had very little luck with love and looked for a way to get over a heartbreak. Spending time with someone who understands you and knows exactly what you are going through can make all the difference in the world.
While some wrestlers are married to their childhood crushes, their secret partners, others found love in the ring.
Here is a list of 5 popular wrestlers who tied the knot with other wrestlers and you probably had no idea.
Surprising List Of 5 Wrestlers Who Married Other Wrestlers
1. Cody Rhodes and Eden:
These two have a very beautiful and interesting love story. They are as wonderful outside the ring as they are in it. While Cody has always been a wrestler, Eden’s story is different. Cody has proved time and time again that he is an excellent wrestler and has earned his place in the wrestling world.
Eden, who is also known as Brandi Rhodes, first appeared on stage as a ring announcer. She interviewed Cody after a match in 2011 and the rest became history. She fell in love with both the man and the sport. She became a wrestler and eventually got married to Cody in 2013.
2. Natalya Neidhart and Tyson Kidd:
I love this love story. My reason for including it on this list is because of the longevity of the union. This duo has been kicking it since 2001 and is still going strong in 2019. While Natalya Neidhart has been on top of her game and holding it together, the story is not the same for Tyson Kidd.
The reason is because of a major injury he had some time back. The injury had a huge effect on his career and he is just struggling to put things together. But despite the odds, the couple is still going on strong.
3. CM Punk and Aj Lee:
This wrestling couple made my list because of their controversial nature. They are razz and they are loud. They brought a different game to wrestling. Although they have both retired from wrestling, they certainly won’t be forgotten in a long while. The reason is not just due to their successes individually. It is majorly because of the title they earned, ‘the most controversial couple in wrestling’.
4. Johnny Gargano and Candice LaRae:
Does anybody say you cannot fall in love with your archenemy? This couple proves otherwise with their unusual love story. They fell in love while fighting each other in the ring. They decided to see where the relationship would take them and eventually tied the knot a few years later.
Their love match is perfect as they are both hot, sizzling and successful. Johnny Gargano is making so many waves in the ring that he is being compared with top wrestlers in history. They also have their title – “One of the hottest couples in wrestling at the moment”.
5. Triple H and Stephanie McMahon:
Triple H needs no introduction in this sport. Any true fan of the sports knows who Triple H is. The same thing goes for Stephanie. These two are powerhouses in WWE. Initially, their relationship started as a scripted one. There was nothing real about it.
But as time went on, it blossomed into marriage. The duo got married and stayed married since 2013 with three beautiful kids. While they have been partners on the screen for years, their off the screen relationship seems not to be suffering.
Former Wrestlers Who Still Actively Work With WWE
Saying goodbye to your favorite athlete, sportsman or even actor never gets better. One of the most dreadful news is hearing that one of your best wrestlers retired. No more signature entrance, no more unique smackdown or game style. It could be emotional. But the truth is that while a lot of them retire and are no longer seen on screen, they are busy doing a whole more behind the scene.
The degree to which they are retained is all dependent on how good a relationship they have with the wrestling company. WWE and Grand slam have several retired wrestlers helping with routines and scripts. A few of these wrestlers are Michael Hayes, Jim Ross, Tony Chimel, Ranjin Singh, Mark Henry, and a lot of others.
Wrestlers Who Became Actors
It has become a widely known fact that some parts of wrestling are not real. There is some acting in it. There are even scripts that are followed and the crowd loves it, acting and all. After certain wrestlers retired, they decided to take a shot at acting.
While some didn’t go so well, others excelled at it. They even created their niche. A good example is Dwayne Johnson also known as the Rock. He quickly became a household name in acting and is popularly known for thrillers. There are a host of others. The likes of Dallas Page, Stephen Austin, Bill Goldberg, Dave Bautista and a lot more.
