WWE Superstars spend a lot of time in the company of their peers. They are on the road for around 300 days a year, which means that they often find love with their fellow Superstars, but is this really love?
It seems that most of these WWE relationships are ones that are built out of their circumstances more than anything else. If these wrestlers weren't forced to be in the same proximity on a daily basis then there is no way that they would have ended up together, let alone date for an unlimited amount of time.
Many of these relationships would no longer work if one of them decided to leave WWE or was injured so that they could no longer travel or compete on WWE's roster for a number of months.
This is what happened with Lita and Matt Hardy. The latter was out with an injury and while he was on the sidelines, Lita decided to become cozy with Edge, who was married at the time. Then one of the most personal feuds in WWE history was born, all because Matt was injured and Lita was forced to attend WWE events without him.
This happens much more than you will realize, so the following are a list of 15 couples that seem like they are only together because they are in a close proximity to each other on a daily basis.

15 Dolph Ziggler and Dana Brooke
Dolph Ziggler used to date both Nikki Bella and stand up comedian Amy Schumer. The latter said that she broke up with Dolph Ziggler because and I quote "The sex was too athletic." Since he broke up with Schumer, Dolph has recently gone public with the fact that he is now dating former bodybuilder and current Raw Superstar Dana Brooke.
The couple seems mismatched, to say the least. Dolph is an incredibly confident performer and one of the most likeable Superstars in WWE, whereas Dana Brooke doesn't seem to be connecting with the WWE Universe at all. Dana has been on the main roster for a few months now and she hasn't made much of an impact. Dana and Dolph just look like an odd pairing and one that probably won't last.
14 Cesaro and Sara Del Rey
Cesaro and Sara Del Rey are another pairing that it seems has been born out of circumstances. Cesaro and Sara met in Ring of Honor when the now WWE employees were part of a group knowns as The Kings of Wrestling.
Sara is now one of the head trainers at WWE's Performance Centre in Orlando, Florida. This means that when Cesaro is on the road, they rarely have time to see each other. Despite the fact that they both work for the same company, their spare time is sparse. This distance can put strain on any relationship. And since Sara assumes such an important role, she cannot travel at will to see Cesaro, which means that their days as a couple could well be numbered.
13 Dean Ambrose and Renee Young
'The Lunatic Fringe' and the interviewer who looks like butter wouldn't melt in her mouth,. These two are definitely the oddest couple that WWE has ever created. Dean Ambrose and Renee Young made their relationship public late last year and have not yet made their relationship a part of any WWE TV proceedings.
That being said, their relationship has become a key part of the next season of Total Divas. The pressure to be on camera all the time and having a production crew following him around might be too much for Ambrose who has not yet mastered how to use the internet. Dean is a very private person and a starring role in a reality TV show definitely won't sit as well with him as it will with Renee.
12 Edge and Beth Phoenix
'The Rated R Superstar' and the former WWE Divas and Women's Champion had been dating for a good few months before Edge let the WWE Universe know that he was in a relationship with the former WWE Diva at the 2012 Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony.
The duo has since welcomed two daughters, with the latest being born earlier this year. But there has been no word on these two stars becoming engaged or making their little family into an official one. This is odd considering Beth comes across as a straightforward talker who would want that stability in her life despite Edge's hectic schedule with both WWE and his acting career. And as well all know, Edge has left a significant other once before.
11 Rusev and Lana
Who would have thought that Lana and Rusev would one day be married and paired together indefinitely on WWE TV? Well Vince McMahon definitely didn't. The Chairman of WWE went as far as breaking the couple up and putting Lana with Dolph Ziggler in an attempt to ensure that their romance ended because he thought that Lana was too attractive for Rusev. What a nice boss.
This obviously failed since the duo have recently tied the knot, but you have the think that this could just be a fairytale romance. These two have only been together a few years and already they have rushed into an engagement and marriage. I feel like the novelty will wear off at some point and this couple will eventually part ways.
10 Buddy Murphy and Alexa Bliss
Alexa Bliss is one of the best female talkers currently in WWE . She is absolutely killing it on the SmackDown Live brand at the moment and is the odds on favourite to win the SmackDown Women's Championship in the next few months. Whereas her boyfriend Buddy Murphy has been stuck in a rut on NXT and is currently feuding with his former tag team partner.
Murphy is not even close to the list of potential WWE call-ups in the next few months which means that Alexa and Buddy can no longer travel to WWE events together because they are on different brands. So the Harley Quinn obsessed Superstar could just move onto another Superstar at some point while on the road traveling with the main roster.
9 Wesley Blake and Sara Lee
This is one of WWE's newest relationships to have been revealed and one that will definitely be put to the test over the coming months. Sara Lee was the winner of WWE Tough Enough last year and signed a development contract that only lasted a year. Her contract ran out last month and she was released from WWE.
She had announced a few days before her release that she was expecting Wesley Blake's baby, and their relationship was finally made public knowledge. With Wesley currently attempting to work his way up the WWE ladder and Sara no longer employed by WWE, this relationship will definitely be a hard one to maintain over the next few months, even with a child on the way for the couple.
8 Zack Ryder and Emma
Zack Ryder has seen a recent resurgence of his career since he has joined up with his tag team partner Mojo Rawley. The former Intercontinental Champion and internet sensation (remember Ryder as the 'Internet Champion?' during his YouTube show?) has also revealed that he is currently dating Raw Superstar Emma (soon to be Emmalina).
This was another couple that was split up during the WWE Draft but with Emma recently being out injured, the couple has had a lot of time together. This could all change when they are officially split up when Emma re-debut's on the Raw roster in the coming weeks. With both brands having different touring and travelling schedules, will they be able to maintain their relationship despite their lack of time together?
7 Bubba Ray Dudley and Velvet Sky
This couple really shocked the WWE Universe when they decided to go public with their relationship in May 2016. Bubba Ray Dudley and Velvet Sky used to work together during his stint with TNA but both wrestlers have since left WWE and TNA respectively.
Bubba's most recent stint with WWE ended a few months ago and he has more recently been working on the independent circuit. Velvet left TNA back in April after she lost a Loser Leaves TNA match against newcomer Sienna. The couple now have time to enjoy each other's company since Bubba is no longer travelling with WWE, but they don't seem like the kind of pairing that will be a lengthy one. Who knew that Bubba had it in him to find a woman like Velvet?
6 Bigg Cass and Carmella
The seven foot tall Big Cass has been dating Carmella since they met in NXT a few years ago. They were travel buddies and managed to spend a lot of time together when they were paired up on the NXT brand. But since then they have both been promoted to the main roster.
Carmella was sent to SmackDown Live where she is currently making waves in the Women's Division while Big Cass and Enzo Amore are making their own impact in the Raw Tag Team Division. This separation can not be helping their relationship unless it is one where absence makes the heart grow fonder, which is unlikely (does that ever really happen?). It is more likely that the duo will grow apart in the coming years.
5 Magnus and Mickie James
Mickie James has a reputation on the wrestling circuit that comes from from her time in WWE. She was engaged to Kenny Dykstra before it was leaked that she was having an affair with John Cena and the couple then called off the engagement.
Mickie has since met Magnus when she joined the TNA roster a few years ago and the couple have a little boy together. Both stars have since left TNA and have been touring the Independent Circuit together as a couple who both perform at the same shows together. It is odd seeing Mickie with Magus and given the fact that the former Women's Champion is set to return to WWE in a few weeks, this could become a problem for the couple.
4 Davey Richards and Angelina Love
The former TNA Superstars have been dating for almost two years now. They became engaged merely three months after their relationship was made public. They then married just over a year later and welcomed their first child in March of this year.
It seems as though the couple fast-tracked their love life and even though they are already married and have started their family, it doesn't mean that they will definitely stay together. They were both TNA Superstars when they started dating and now their circumstances have changed, so it will be interesting to see how they adapt. The Independent Circuit does not provide the most stable working environment which could also affect this couple moving forward together. It will be interesting to see if these two can make it work now that they left TNA.
3 Aaron Solow and Bayley
The former NXT Women's Champion is currently dating professional wrestling referee Aaron Solow. The duo have been dating for a few months now and Bayley seems as loved up as ever. The problem is the fact that they both work for different promotions.
This could be a relationship that may not be able to withstand Bayley's hectic touring schedule now that she's a part of the main roster on Monday Night Raw. When she was in NXT and she was only recording programs every four weeks, it was much easier for her to find free time, but this has changed a lot since she was called up a few weeks ago. And it will now be interesting to see if her relationship suffers because of it.
2 John Cena and Nikki Bella
This will not be a popular addition to the list since John Cena and Nikki Bella have many of the WWE Universe already worshipping their relationship, but it could be one that it destined to reach a brick wall at some point.
Total Divas has shown over the past few years that both Superstars want different things. Nikki wants marriage and kids while Cena wants to continue to be successful and work at the highest level. The couple has clashed over this many times and at some point, they will have to admit to each other that their lives are going in different directions. When they reach this point that may mean that they can no longer stay together. At that point, there may be no way of saving their relationship.
1 Alberto Del Rio and Paige
This relationship was one that was always destined to be a risky affair. Many of the WWE Universe blame Alberto Del Rio for Paige's recent problems with her WWE contract and the fact that she has violated the Wellness Policy twice in as many months.
Del Rio seems to have been a bad influence for the British Superstar and with Paige's family also set against the relationship with Del Rio, it's only a matter of time before she listens to logic. Paige now has tattoos dedicated to Del Rio and has recently proposed to the Mexican Superstar inside a wrestling ring. Paige should make her WWE return in the next few weeks and hopefully when she's spent some time away from Del Rio, she will be able to evaluate the relationship for herself.
