WWE Superstars sacrifice almost everything that comes with having a normal human life in favour of living out their dreams inside that squared circle.
Some never even try to land a normal job because they know that wrestling is the only career they ever want to work towards. This means that many Superstars are well into their 30s and still haven't managed to begin families because they are still focused on climbing their way to the top of the world's biggest wrestling company.
Luckily, this list isn't about these people. This list is about the people who have managed to live their dream and still have a family at home waiting for them despite the fact that they have to spend more than 300 days a year on the road, and rarely get to travel home and see either their wives or their children.
Many wrestlers end up finding love on the road with them and this then leads to workplace romances between certain wrestlers, but this is to be expected because of how long Superstars actually spend travelling throughout their day to day lives.
The following is a list of all of the WWE Superstars that the WWE Universe didn't actually know were married, the ones you thought were single, and the ones you never even thought about in a personal context.
18 15. Bray Wyatt
SmackDown Live's own 'Eater of Worlds' doesn't seem like the kind of Superstar that would go home to a loving family at the end of a busy day, but shockingly he does. Wyatt is not only married, but he also has two children. That's right, the leader of The Wyatt Family has his own real life family outside of WWE.
Wyatt and his wife Samantha have two daughters together called Kendyl and Cadyn and the couple has been happily married for the last few years. Wyatt hasn't been given as much TV time on SmackDown recently and hasn't yet been pushed towards the WWE World Championship, but some rumors suggest that The Wyatt Family may finally have something to cheer about since Wyatt should be heading towards SmackDown's biggest title in the near future.
17 14. Randy Orton
Randy Orton is one of the best-known Superstars in WWE. As well as the hectic schedule he has had to endure over the past ten years while main eventing WWE, Orton has also had the time to settle down and start a family of his own, twice.
'The Apex Predator' was married for the first time back in 2005 to high school sweetheart Samantha Speno and the couple went on to have a daughter named Alanna Marie. This marriage sadly hit the rocks and despite their best efforts, the couple was forced to divorce in 2012. Merely three years later Orton announced his marriage to Kimberly Kessler, who announced back in May that she was expecting their first child, which would be Kimberley's fourth and Orton's second.
16 13. Roman Reigns
Roman Reigns has been one of the fastest rising stars in WWE over the past four years and finally it seems WWE have found a place for the new United States Champion. Coming from a Samoan family, it was obvious that Roman was always going to be having a large family of his own, and it seems he's already made a start.
Roman married Galina Joelle Becker back in 2014 after the couple had been together for many years and even have a daughter named Joelle. Roman appeared along with his daughter on an advert that was played on WWE TV back in June 2014 and the former member of The Shield has often been spotted with his wife at public events with WWE. She was last seen at this year's Hall of Fame induction ceremony.
15 12. AJ Styles
The current WWE Champion and legend of TNA made the switch over to the WWE at the Royal Rumble earlier this year and has already managed to make an impact in such a short time on WWE's main roster. AJ Styles has climbed the ranks in WWE to hold the biggest title on the SmackDown Live roster in record time, something that has seen him ranked as one of the best wrestlers in the world.
Styles signed up for a much more hectic career when he agreed to make the switch to WWE but he still has a rather large family at home, who he will now only see a certain amount of days a year. AJ married his wife Wendy back in 1996 and the couple has since welcomed four children over the past ten years, all of which have the initials 'AJ'.Ajay, Albey, Avery, and Styles' youngest and only daughter. Anney.
14 11. Bo Dallas
It's hard to see where WWE have gone wrong with Bo Dallas, from being the 'Inspirational One' to his time in The Social Outcasts. The brother of Bray Wyatt has failed to make the same impact as his sibling, but his most recent gimmick that includes numerous squash matches seems to have potential.
While Dallas hasn't spent a lot of time on WWE TV, it could mean that he has been allowed to spend more time with his wife instead. But even if he couldn't make it home for long periods of time, Dallas' wife would understand because she's former NXT Superstar Shara. Dallas married Sarah Blackman back in 2014, who is a former eight-time Arm Wrestling World Champion. So, she knows exactly what it's like to work hard to live your dream.
13 10. Brian Kendrick
Brian Kendrick has a storied history with WWE. the former Cruiserweight Champion has been offered an incredible opportunity to re-join WWE in their newly rebranded Cruiserweight Division and was the first ever challenger for TJ Perkins' Championship at the inaugural (WWE version) of Clash of Champions.
Kendrick knows the business better than anyone having been in and around it for the past 12 years, but outside of WWE Kendrick is also happily married. Kendrick is another Superstar who found love on the road after meeting and marrying Tough Enough Finalist and former OVW Superstar Taylor Matheny. The couple married back in 2008 and she has appeared along with Kendrick on Total Divas when the former Tag Team Champion was helping to train Eva Marie for in-ring competition.
12 9. Johnny Gargano
Johnny Gargano hasn't yet made it to WWE's main roster, but he has made an impact down in NXT and when he played his part in this year's Cruiserweight Classic. Gargano and Tommaso Ciampa also tagged together to play a major role in the Tag Team Division of NXT for a while, but both men are expected to head to Raw as part of the new Cruiserweight Division.
Along with many other Superstars in WWE, Gargano met his wife in a wrestling ring and the duo often fought each other in mixed-gender matches on the Independent Circuit. Candice LeRae is a seasoned professional wrestler herself and won many of the matches when she faced her real-life husband. The couple became engaged in early 2016 before they were married merely weeks ago after it was made official that Gargano had signed for WWE and was heading to their main roster.
11 8. Samoa Joe
The former NXT Champion and TNA Superstar has made a huge impact in his first year in WWE. Not only has he already been the face of NXT, but he managed to defeat former Champion Finn Balor to take that title. Joe sadly lost the title to Shinsuke Nakamura at NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn II a few weeks ago, with rumors stating that a main roster call-up is imminent.
Joe has been traveling around wrestling for the better part of the past two decades and has become one of the most recognizable faces on the wrestling scene. In that time, Joe has also managed to meet and marry his wife. The former TNA World Champion married Jessica Seanoa back in 2007 and the couple has remained happy since, even with him signing up for more hours away from home when he joined WWE.
8 7. Aiden English
One-half of The Vaudevillians, Aiden English is a former NXT Tag Team Champion and current member of the SmackDown Live roster. He along with Simon Gotch were attempting to become SmackDown Tag Team Champions in the near future but were sadly knocked out of the tournament to crown new winners at the quarter-final stage.
A former NXT wrestler himself, English met his future wife when both stars were part of WWE's developmental show. Shaul Guererro is the daughter of the late Eddie Guerrero and former Raw General Manager Vickie Guerrero, but she left WWE after just a few months in NXT. She and English continued dating following her exit from the company and decided to marry in January this year. The couple remain together despite Shaul's decision to leave the company.
7 6. Kofi Kingston
Kofi Kingston is one-third of the second longest reigning Tag Team Champions in WWE history. His reign as part of The New Day has now surpassed the 400-day mark and could be set to make history. Kofi is an accomplished singles wrestler as well having held the United States Championship three times and Intercontinental Championship on four occasions.
As well as stealing the show on numerous occasions with WWE, Kofi goes home to another family of his own. He married Kori Campfield back in 2010 and the couple welcomed their first child back in 2013. The couple then welcomed their second son to the world back in April as Orion Kingsley Sarkodie-Mensah, who has recently made an appearance on Xavier Woods' Youtube show Up Up Down Down.
6 5. Kevin Owens
Kevin Owens is an incredible talent. He is the epitome of a triple threat, in the ring, on the mic ,and even on Social Media Owens has become one of the best all-around performers in WWE. Owens is currently the reigning Universal Champion on Monday Night Raw after retaining his Championship at Clash of Champions.
Owens often gives fans a look into his private life on Twitter by sharing videos of his children and beautiful wife. Owens has mentioned his son in many of his promos and revealed that he was a huge John Cena fan back in 2015. Owens and Karina have been together for many years with him stating that 'she loved me when I had nothing.' The couple named their first child Owen after Kevin's favorite wrestler, the late Owen Hart whom he also honors with his ring name. The couple also has a daughter called Elodie.
5 4. Sasha Banks
The former NXT and Raw Women's Champion is a very private person outside of the WWE ring. While she has both an Instagram and Twitter page she rarely allows fans access to the personal part of her life, but she has revealed to her many male followers that she is now a taken woman.
Sasha, like many of her peers married in-house after she met WWE costume designer Sarath Ton when she joined WWE. The duo married just a few days after she won her first WWE Women's Championship back in August. Pictures of the wedding were leaked online, but that was the only snippet fans were allowed into the personal life of one of the most gifted female wrestlers in currently under contract with WWE.
3 3. Jack Swagger
The All-American Real-American has made headlines recently by being the first person to switch brands following WWE's highly documented draft back in July. It seems there was nothing for Swagger to do on Monday Night Raw and officials made the decision to allow him to move to SmackDown Live where they could push him much higher than they could have on Raw.
Swagger is a former ECW and World Champion and has been with WWE since 2007. Although never quite finding a proper spot on the roster, Swagger has remained with the company. In this time he has also married and started a family. Swagger would wed Catalina White back in December 2010 and the couple has since welcomed two children, Knox Sterling was born back in 2011 while Presley Pearl was born last year.
2 2. Erick Rowan
The former member of The Wyatt Family who is also a former NXT Tag Team Champion has failed to have as much success as over the past few months since the status of the Family remains uncertain. Both Erick Rowan and Bray Wyatt were drafted to the SmackDown Live roster and could decide to reunite the family if needed.
Outside of WWE Erick Rowan has his own family but is very private about his personal life so there is not a lot known about the couple. All that is common knowledge is the fact that Rowan is married with two children, the eldest being a boy and youngest a little girl. There is a photo of the family that was leaked online and it's the only proof that the WWE Universe has of Rowan's real family.
1 1. Heath Slater
Heath Slater has just become one-half of the inaugural SmackDown Tag Team Champions after what was an incredible free agent storyline. Throughout this storyline, Slater talked about the fact that he needed the job with WWE because he had a family and he needed the money to support them.
While most of the time Slater exaggerated how many children he did have, the former 3MB member does, in fact, have a family outside of WWE. Slater married Stephanie Miller back in 2011 and the couple has since welcomed two daughters, Remmedy and Rozalyn. Not a lot is known about the Slater family since they are also quite private people, but the two children Slater does have is a far cry from the seven he claimed to have on an episode of SmackDown Live.
