The couples in the wrestling world seem to come and go through the years. Most romances are short term due to the egos, constant time together and other variables that come into play to hurt the relationships. Dating outside of the business with someone from a different career path can be difficult as well. The schedule of a wrestler along with the inconsistency of being able to have a stable home life makes for tough dating. Many wrestlers go public with their relationships regardless of if their significant other is a fellow wrestler or someone in a different profession.
We'll take a look at stories of wrestlers that not many fans know are in relationships and others that are surprisingly not dating anyone. With things changing quickly in the love lives of these wrestlers, their current statuses present surprises in different ways. The relationships of those dating someone will be further expanded on in regards to who they are seeing right now. Those single wrestlers not dating anyone will also be looked at as to why people assume they are in relationships. Both sides will be showcased as we name ten wrestlers you didn’t realize were in a relationship along with five that are surprisingly single.
15 Relationship: Baron Corbin
The malcontent personality of Baron Corbin makes it hard to believe he is in a relationship. Corbin presents his real life persona similar to his character in the sense that he doesn’t care about anything but himself. Viewers were shocked when he showed up to the WWE Hall of Fame with his significant other Rochelle Roman earlier this year.
The stunning woman and Corbin have apparently been together for many years now. Corbin buying the former house of The Undertaker means the couple is now living there together. There isn’t much information out there about Corbin’s relationship aside from the fact that he is dating Rochelle. Corbin seems to like to keep his personal life private meaning we likely won’t get any details about the relationship aside from WWE Hall of Fame red carpet interviews.
14 Relationship: Cesaro
Cesaro has never discussed his relationship in any public forum but he is actually dating a fellow WWE employee. Before either person joined the WWE, Cesaro and former independent wrestler Sara Del Rey started dating as they worked together in multiple promotions. Most would remember their on-screen chemistry when Sara was the manager of Cesaro and Kassius Ohno’s Kings of Wrestling team.
Today, Del Rey is known for her real name of Sara Amato working behind the scenes for WWE. Sara is credited for a huge role in the success of women’s wrestling due to her training the ladies in the Performance Center. The current role of producer on the main roster as well as helping train new talents prove both Sara and Cesaro are living their dreams in WWE while dating.
13 Single: Dolph Ziggler
Dolph Ziggler has been involved in rumors and speculation regarding his love interests during his WWE career. Nikki Bella, Tammy Sytch and Dana Brooke are just a few of the wrestling names he has been linked to or confirmed to have date. Celebrity comedian Amy Schumer even stated the two dated for a short time period on one of her interviews.
For one of the first times, Ziggler isn’t currently linked to anyone in WWE. Dolph confirmed he was single earlier this year when someone asked him if he was still seeing Brooke in an interview. There is no telling what Ziggler’s future holds given his contract is rumored to be expiring soon. The decision regarding his future will likely give him more freedom do what he wants without a relationship factoring in.
12 Relationship: Kassius Ohno
The love life of Kassius Ohno has never been a topic similar to the other wrestlers dating within the industry. Ohno is currently wrestling in NXT with his second stint in WWE developmental. The in-ring skills of Ohno are regarded as one of the best wrestlers in the world leading to Triple H signing back to the WWE once again.
Ohno is apparently dating fellow wrestler Rachael Ellering. Both worked together on the independent circuit and NXT as she makes infrequent appearances on the television show. As the daughter of Paul Ellering and the girlfriend of Ohno, she already has two loved ones in NXT if she ever signs with the promotion. Rachael confirmed the relationship by posting a picture of gifts by Ohno that made her quite happy as a loved girlfriend.
11 Relationship: Zack Ryder
Zack Ryder and Emma dated for quite some time as seen with many pictures of the former couple going to theme parks or vacation spots together. The couple broke up at some point over the past year. Ryder confirmed this by posting pictures with his new girlfriend when fans barely realized he stopped dating Emma.
TNA wrestler Lauren Van Ness is the new love interest of Ryder giving us a rare instance of a WWE star dating an Impact wrestler. Most fans know her as Chelsea Green during her time on WWE’s Tough Enough reality series. Green was one of the few contestants not offered a Performance Center contract but has had one of the better careers following the show. Ryder and Chelsea are very public about their romance showing pictures of their times together quite often.
10 Single: Emma
Despite the fact that Zack Ryder jumped into another relationship so quickly, Emma appears to be happily single. The current social media use of Emma shows her going to amazing destinations every weekend. If WWE is in a city with something worth checking out, she seems to go there. On her down time, Emma is on vacation enjoying the fruits of her labor.
Emma is not dating Ryder or anyone else at the moment is not only seeing her apparently enjoying life, but fans get to witness her incredible bikini pictures from all of her trips to the beach. Single life can be incredible for a WWE star. Without any responsibilities, the ability to do what you want while traveling the world can be a dream job. Emma shows that by all of her vacations and sightseeing in 2017.
9 Relationship: Becky Lynch
The relationship of Becky Lynch is not one that is very public, but she doesn’t shy away from posting pictures of her significant other on social media. Lynch is currently dating MMA fighter Luke Sanders. The UFC bantamweight competitor bonds with Becky over their shared love of combat sports. Considering both have trained in various forms of wrestling, their backgrounds aren’t too different.
Most of the women in WWE seem to date within the business given it is the easier way to meet someone and get to know them organically. Becky is one of the few to have a relationship with a somewhat high profile name outside of the professional wrestling world. WWE always likes to recruit athletes from other worlds. Sanders has a great connection with WWE if he ever chooses to leave MMA.
8 Relationship: Aiden English
Aiden English is not that memorable on the WWE roster when discussing the lives of Superstars. The lower-card act is getting more television time on SmackDown as of late. English has charm but doesn’t seem to be moving up into any noteworthy program. One interesting tidbit about him as a person is realizing he married into the Guerrero family.
The current relationship of English has him married to Eddie Guerrero’s daughter Shaul Guerrero. The couple met when Shaul was training to be a professional wrestler in FCW. Despite her decision to leave the industry, the relationship remained strong and the two would get married. Aiden recently posted a message on social media celebrating the late Eddie’s birthday by being grateful for the woman he helped raise.
7 Single: Enzo Amore
Enzo Amore was recently in a relationship with the significantly younger Liv Morgan. According to a report, Enzo knew Morgan from his days managing a Hooters restaurant in New Jersey and helped get her hired. The two would date shortly after she joined the Performance Center seeing him every day. Both wrestlers were spotted together in public many times over the past two years.
Their relationship however didn’t seem to have a strong foundation given her young age and Enzo being Enzo. Liv confirmed they broke up when posting a message on social media about no longer having to worry about being cheated on. Amore is still single considering stories have leaked regarding him going to strip clubs and bragging about how much money he has.
6 Relationship: Sami Zayn
One wrestler that has done a good job at keeping his private life out of the public is Sami Zayn. Aside from the things he wants us to know, it is almost impossible to find out anything about him. Some fans have figured out that Zayn is however in a very serious relationship. The romance is serious enough that Zayn apparently got married within the past year or two.
Fans have spotted pictures of him wearing his wedding ring in interviews or appearances away from WWE television. This was confirmed by other wrestlers when Chuck Taylor and Trent Barreta referenced Sami getting married when talking about random topics on their Highspots talk show. Zayn doesn’t want the public to know who he is with, but there is a lovely lady in his life.
5 Relationship: Summer Rae
The current status of Summer Rae is confusing considering she hasn’t been on television in well over a year. Summer was cleared for action in the summer of this year after recovering from an injury. WWE still has yet to find a role for her on television and there are rumors that she will have her contract expire without negotiating a new deal similar to Eva Marie.
Unlike many of the other women’s wrestlers, Rae is not dating someone from the wrestling world. Her boyfriend however is still from the athletic world as she is dating former NBA player Shavlik Randolph. The basketball player now plays professional in China for the Chinese Basketball Association. Summer has posted multiple pictures together and actually visited him in China at some point in recent months.
4 Single: Asuka
Asuka is one of the top names to jump from NXT to the main roster this year on the Raw brand. The recent debut saw her continue the undefeated streak that lasted two years in NXT. Many of the wrestlers in her age range of both genders appear to have been married or in a long term relationship by this point.
The difference is Asuka has put everything into her craft of wrestling. Moving from Japan to the United States completely changed just about every aspect of her life. She is starting a new life in a new place and attempting to make it a home. That makes it difficult for one to date and could be a reason why Asuka is single. Regardless, it doesn’t matter to us as she is one of the best women’s wrestlers in the world helping bring WWE more credibility.
3 Relationship: Adam Cole
The newest top name in NXT is world traveling star Adam Cole. Fans were aware of Cole in a major way due to how much he accomplished during his run in ROH, PWG and New Japan. Cole was arguably the biggest NXT signing since Shinsuke Nakamura. A little known fact about Cole is that he started dating independent wrestler Britt Baker during the final few months of his time before signing with WWE.
Cole and Baker worked a couple of matches together as an inter-gender tag team. Baker is relatively new to wrestling and has shown a lot of potential. There is a great chance she progresses enough to join her boyfriend in WWE within their careers. Cole is now hitting his prime after the legendary ROH run. He now has a new girlfriend that he loves and his dream job both at the same time.
2 Relationship: Finn Balor
Finn Balor has avoided dating rumors for most of his career. There was some speculation that he once dated Becky Lynch, but their relationship has been confirmed as strictly wrestling related as he trained her. Balor is regarded as one of the best looking men in the wrestling business. His track record of keeping his private life out of the public eye ended recently.
Fans saw Balor and broadcaster Cathy Kelley holding hands together in public. Both Balor and Kelley live in New York and have spotted out in Brooklyn multiple times. They also have been in the same place at the same time on trips to different destinations as seen by their social media pages. Balor is no longer single and has entered a romance with the beautiful broadcaster.
1 Single: Jinder Mahal
The biggest example of someone seeing their star power rise this year is Jinder Mahal. 2017 started with Mahal being an enhancement talent putting over other wrestlers. Vince McMahon was impressed with his physique and wanted a face to market the India expansion with. Mahal is now the WWE Champion holding the prestigious title for the majority of the year.
Despite being a huge presence in WWE, Jinder is apparently single in his everyday life. An interview suggested that Mahal is enjoying being in his early 30s having the run of his life with no responsibilities yet. Jinder doesn’t have a family or a love interest to look after yet if the speculation is true. The carefree life traveling the world after the long road without reward has to be sweet for Mahal as he has the best 2017 possible.
