There is something about celebrity couples that seems to fascinate the general public. In fact, there are countless websites and publications dedicated to covering the personal lives of the rich and famous. When it comes to celebrities, one would be hard-pressed to find a more interesting group than professional wrestlers. With that in mind, it seems only natural that folks what to know everything about their favorite wrestling superstars... including whom they're dating.
Currently, there are several well-known wrestling couples that even the most casual wrestling fans know are an item. For example, John Cena's proposal to Nikki Bella was highly publicized. Moreover, you wouldn't have to follow the sport very long to learn that Stephanie McMahon and Triple H are married.
However, there are many fans out there that would like to know who the wrestlers that don't headline WrestleMania are cozying up with outside the ring. Who are wrestlers like Cesaro and Bayley spending time with when they aren't competing in the squared circle?
Keeping that in mind, here is a list of some of your favorite midcard wrestlers and their current main squeezes. You may be shocked to find out who some of these performers are going out with.
18 Zack Ryder And Chelsea Green
Zack Ryder was WWE's first and only self-proclaimed "Internet Champion." His Internet show, Z! True Long Island Story helped him gain notoriety and resulted in WWE featuring him in high-profile storylines back in 2011. However, Ryder would eventually return to the undercard, though he did capture the Intercontinental Championship at WrestleMania 32 in 2016.
Zack Ryder previously dated the Australian beauty known as Emma, who also wrestles for WWE. However, these days the New York native is currently going out with Chelsea Green. Impact Wrestling fans may know green by another name, that being Laurel Van Ness. The two appear to be quite happy, and share many photos together on Instagram and various other social media outlets. It would appear Zack Ryder has found happiness since parting ways with Emma.
17 Becky Lynch And Luke Sanders
The 5-foot-6 redhead from Dublin, Ireland has the distinction of being the first-ever SmackDown Women's Champion. Her unique steampunk style has helped capture the imagination of wrestling fans around the globe. Becky Lynch remains one of the most talented wrestlers in SmackDown's Women's division.
Becky Lynch has been romantically linked to MMA fighter and current UFC Bantamweight Luke Sanders. Sanders is 11-1 as a professional mixed martial artist, with his only loss coming against Iuri Alcantara. The couple met back in February 2016. Sanders attended WrestleMania 33 to show his support for Lynch, while Lynch was at UFC 209 to cheer her man on. There are countless photos on Instagram of the couple spending time together. This is one mixed-sport relationship that appears to be going well.
16 Austin Aries And Thea Trinidad
Austin Aries has been quite impressive since joining the ranks of the WWE cruiserweight division. The man from Milwaukee, Wisconsin has also served as an occasional color commentator since joining the company. Aries also had a great deal of success outside of WWE working for both Impact Wrestling and Ring of Honor Wrestling.
The man from "America's Dairyland" is currently dating Thea Trinidad. Trinidad has wrestled for NXT and appeared on WWE television as one of Adam Rose's Rosebuds. However, she is probably best known for her time in TNA where she went by the ring name Rosita. In fact, Trinidad and her then partner Sarita briefly held the TNA Knockout Tag Team titles. The pair met while they were both working for Impact Wrestling, they have been engaged since April of 2016.
15 Enzo Amore And Liv Morgan
Enzo Amore is one-half of the tag team duo known as Enzo and Cass. His entertaining mic work and comedic timing have made him one of the most popular mid-card wrestlers on WWE's main roster. The "certified G and bonafide stud" can be seen on WWE's flagship show Monday Night Raw.
Amore's real name is actually Eric Arndt. He is currently dating none other than NXT star and fellow wrestler Liv Morgan. When Morgan isn't performing in the ring she is known as Gionna Daddio. Amore is 3o years of age making him roughly 7-8 years the elder of the 22-year-old Morgan. However, both wrestling stars are legitimate New Jersey natives. The couple apparently met while they were both members of the NXT developmental roster.
14 Jimmy Uso And Naomi
Jimmy Uso and his fraternal twin Jey have been mainstays in the WWE tag team division for several years now. The two currently hold the SmackDown Tag Team Championships and have been title holders on three separate occasions. The brothers are of Samoan descent and members of the legendary Anoa'i wrestling family.
Jimmy Uso, whose real name is Jonathan Solofa Fatu, is currently married to WWE SmackDown Women's Champion Naomi (Trinity Fatu). The couple's relationship has been documented on the E! television series Total Divas. The two were wed in Maui back in 2014. Uso also has two children from a previous relationship, which technically makes Naomi a stepmom. I suppose if one had to have a stepmother, the former Funkadactyl and current WWE SmackDown Women's Champion is as good a choice as any.
13 Alexa Bliss And Buddy Murphy
WWE's resident "Wicked Witch" has taken the company by storm since her main roster debut back in July of 2016. The 5-foot-1 blonde from Columbus, Ohio has accomplished a great deal during her relatively short stint in the WWE. Alexa Bliss has won the SmackDown Women's Championship (twice) and currently holds the Raw Women's title.
Longtime Bliss fans may remember her NXT days when she managed the Tag Team duo of (Wesley) Blake and (Buddy) Murphy. As it turns out, Bliss is currently dating Buddy Murphy. In fact, Bliss, whose real name is Alexis Kaufman, announced that the two were engaged in January of 2017. While Bliss has had a great deal of success on Raw recently, Murphy has struggled a bit in NXT. Perhaps the added incentive of spending more time with the lovely Alexa Bliss will give him extra motivation to make it to the main roster.
11 Paige And Alberto Del Rio
Paige is a former WWE Divas Champion who has been out of action for several months due to a next injury. She first captured the title when she as just 21 years of age making her the youngest champion in the title's history. Despite being out of action, Paige has made headlines recently as a result of her private images being leaked to the public.
Paige is currently involved in a relationship with former WWE star and current Impact Wrestling competitor, Alberto Del Rio, a.k.a. Alberto El Patron on Impact. Del Rio (Jose Alberto Rodriguez) who is 39 years old, is nearly 15 years the elder of the 24-year-old Paige. Paige, whose real name is Saraya-Jade Bevis, went public with their relationship back in 2016. The couple announced that they were engaged in October of 2016.
10 Carmella And Big Cass
The man known as Big Cass is "7 foot tall and you can't teach that." He is also the larger half of the tag team duo collectively known as Enzo and Cass. The native of Queens, New York and his partner Enzo Amore are one of the most popular tag teams on the entire WWE roster.
Like his partner Enzo Amore, Big Cass also met his love interest during his time in NXT. Cass, whose real name is William Morrisey, is currently dating the SmackDown superstar known as Carmella.When she isn't performing for the WWE Universe, Carmella goes by the name Leah Van Dale. NXT fans will likely remember that Carmella previously managed Enzo and Cass before the three grapplers were eventually called up to the main roster. Carmella currently performs on SmackDown, while Big Cass can be seen on Monday Night Raw.
8 Aiden English And Shaul Guerrero
Aiden English has spent most of his tenure in WWE as a member of the tag team known as the Vaude Villians. However, when his former partner Simon Gotch was released from the company in April of 2017, English became a singles competitor. He currently involved in a feud with Canadian wrestler Tye Dillinger.
English is married to former NXT wrestler Shaul Guerrero. If her name doesn't sound familiar her parents' names certainly will. Shaul Guerrero is the daughter of the legendary Eddie Guerrero and wrestling personality Vickie Guerrero.
English, whose real name is Matthew Rehwoldt, married Guerrero in January of 2016 in a ceremony that has held in Florida. For this keeping score at home, this makes Aiden English both Vickie and Eddie Guerrero's son-in-law.
7 Cesaro And Sara Del Rey
The "Swiss Superman" known as Cesaro is arguably one of the most underutilized performers on the WWE roster. He is the type of physical athlete who could find himself involved in main event feuds in the near future. As it stands, Cesaro has been a WWE Tag Team Champion, a United States Champion, and was the inaugural Andre The Giant Memorial Trophy Winner.
Cesaro's real name is Claudio Castagnoli, and he is currently dating Sara Del Rey (Sara Amato). Del Rey is also a pro wrestler by trade, though these days she is NXT's assistant head coach. Apparently, the two have been an item since 2008. However, unlike many wrestling couples, Cessaro and Del Rey keep their relationship a bit more private. That being said, given the length of time the two have been together one would expect an engagement announcement at some point.
6 Matt Hardy And Reby Sky
Matt Hardy is one-half of the legendary tag team known as The Hardy Boyz. He and his brother Jeff currently hold the Raw Tag Team Championships. The brothers have held tag team titles in almost every major promotion in the world. Matt Hardy recently experienced a bit of a career resurgence with his "Broken" character, which likely played a major role in WWE re-signing him.
The 42-year-old from Cameron North Carolina is married to fellow wrestler Reby Sky. Sky, whose real name is Rebecca Hardy (nee Reyes) was also Hardy's on-screen wife during his run with Impact Wrestling. The two were married back in June of 2015. The couple has one son named Maxel (King Maxel from Impact Wrestling) and a second son currently on the way. Perhaps, Sky will attempt to wrestle in WWE at some point after she has given birth.
5 Sasha Banks And Kid Mikaze
Sasha Banks is just 25 years of age and has already won the Raw Women's Championship on three separate occasions. She is one of the most popular females currently on WWE's main roster and is affectionately referred to by her fans as "The Boss." In 2015 (along with Charlotte Flair) Banks became the first female to headline a WWE pay-per-view.
In 2016, Sasha Banks married independent wrestler Kid Mikaze. Mikaze, whose real name is Sarath Ton, is currently a costume designer for World Wrestling Entertainment. In fact, he has even created many of the costumes worn by Banks herself. Mikaze married into a family that includes celebrities like Snoop Dogg, Brandy Norwood, and music producer Daz Dillinger. Despite being only 25-years-old, "The Boss" is officially off the market.
4 Mickie James And Magnus
Mickie James is one of the most accomplished female professional wrestlers in the sport today. James debuted in WWE back in 2005 and took part in a stalker storyline involving Trish Stratus. The angle with Stratus helped to make James a major player in WWE. In fact, she has held the WWE Women's Championship on five separate occasions.
Mickie James has previously been romantically linked to wrestlers like John Cena and The Spirit Squad's Kenny Dykstra. However, these days she is married to Impact Wrestling's Magnus (Nick Aldis). Apparently, the two met when they were both signed with Impact Wrestling, back when it was called TNA. In 2014 the couple had a child together, a boy named Donovan Aldis. The couple went on tie the knot back in December of 2015.
2 Bayley And Aaron Solow
Bayley is one of WWE's more kid-friendly characters who has never been shy about giving hugs. She is also an excellent in-ring performer who made a name for herself in WWE's developmental promotion known as NXT. Bayley made her Monday Night Raw debut back 2016 and has even briefly held the Raw Women's Championship.
Bayley, whose real name is Pamela Rose Martinez, is currently dating an independent wrestler named Aaron Solow. The couple met back in 2010 while they were both competing on the independent circuit. Solow also aspires to work for WWE and even tried out for the company's reality show Tough Enough in 2015. In November of 2016, the pair officially became engaged. If Solow ever makes it to the big show, WWE could have another power couple on their hands.
1 Darren Young And Niccolo "Nick" Villa
Darren Young first rose to prominence in WWE as a member of The Prime Time Players with his then tag team partner Titus O'Neil. As a member of The Prime Time Players Young is a former WWE Tag Team champion. He is currently a singles competitor who is managed by Bob Backlund. Backlund was previously attempting to "make Darren Young great again," though we don't know if the partnership will continue once Young returns from injury.
Young made headlines back in 2013 when he became the first openly gay wrestler to come out while currently under a WWE contract. There have been other wrestlers (such as Hall of Famer Pat Patterson) who have come out after retiring or parting ways with WWE. Young has been dating a man named Niccolo "Nick" Villa since 2011. The couple currently lives in Miami, Florida.
