15 Sunny & Bret Hart
Shawn Michaels crossed the line during his very personal feud with Bret Hart when claiming the married star was cheating on his wife with WWE Diva Sunny. Michaels and Hart absolutely hated each other in real life allowing it to stem over to television with this accusation. Hart and Sunny both denied the claims. Sunny actually was involved in a relationship with Michaels making it all the more shocking when he said this.
14 Vince McMahon & Shawn Michaels
A shocking urban legend also involving Shawn Michaels comes in the form of a potential secret relationship with Vince McMahon of all people. It's no secret that McMahon allowed Michaels to get away with more than just about any wrestler in WWE history. Michaels was often a mess and made life miserable for his co-workers but nothing stopped McMahon’s belief in him.
13 Undertaker & Jenna Jameson
Jenna Jameson created a rumor when releasing one of her books due to a connection to The Undertaker. Both stars found their fame in completely different worlds, but they were friends at a younger age. Undertaker and Jameson apparently hung out as teenagers at a tattoo parlor he worked at and she implied he attempted to hook up with her.
12 MVP & Sherri Shepherd
Another odd rumor regarding a WWE Superstar and a celebrity came in 2009. Actress and The View host Sherri Shepherd did a guest appearance on WWE television working with MVP. We would later see MVP appear on The View. The two allegedly started dating and they went to a prom event together when Shepherd visited her old high school.
11 The Rock & Trish Stratus
The Rock and Trish Stratus had an on-screen relationship that only lasted a couple of weeks before WWE ended it. It came out of nowhere and didn’t make much sense aside from both being common enemies of Vince McMahon. Bob Holly dropped a snide remark in his book about the success of Stratus to create an urban legend along the way.
10 Mae Young & Moolah
Every longtime wrestling fan remembers the appearances of The Faboulous Moolah and Mae Young during the Attitude Era. Both were legends from their glory days starting all the way back in the 1940s. WWE brought them back as elderly women to be a part of storylines. They were real life best friends that always traveled together and were basically an item when getting booked.
9 Vince McMahon & Candice Michelle
Vince McMahon used his position of power running WWE television to make out with many WWE female wrestlers. The owner of WWE found his way in storylines with the women he found most attractive from Trish Stratus to Sable to Torrie Wilson. One other romance storyline with no real reasoning behind it was Candice Michelle.
8 Dolph Ziggler & Amy Schumer
The odd pairing of Dolph Ziggler and comedian Amy Schumer became a rumor online that would eventually get confirmed. Schumer appeared on the Howard Stern Show and discussed their time together before admitting they broke up. Ziggler is badly trying to get into the comedic world to set up a future after wrestling making it an even better fit.
7 Rey Mysterio & Jennifer Aniston
Another shocking urban legend regarding a wrestler dating a celebrity featured Rey Mysterio and Jennifer Aniston. This rumor actually started back in WWE and resurfaced years later when Mysterio found bigger fame in WWE. Tabloids in the 90s speculated that the mega-star Aniston met Mysterio at a television event and the two hit it off enough to start a relationship.
6 Pat Patterson & Brooklyn Brawler
Pat Patterson and Brooklyn Brawler were two of the most loyal backstage employees in WWE history. Something they may have in common aside from the WWE love was a potential relationship together.
5 Batista & Melina
The love triangle between Batista, Melina and John Morrison became an embarrassing urban legend for two of the three. Rumors circulated online that Melina openly cheated on Morrison with Batista and everyone backstage knew about it. Batista stated the stories were true when referencing his intimate relationship with Melina in his book.
4 Paige & Xavier Woods
The recent sex scandal of Paige’s private videos and pictures being leaked online created a new urban legend. Paige and Brad Maddox was obviously a couple at the time of these actions but one of the videos featured Maddox filming Paige being with another man. The person in question happens to look a lot like Xavier Woods did during his time in NXT with the other two.
3 Chris Jericho & Kelly Kelly
An urban legend of an affair puts Chris Jericho on the wrong side for potentially cheating on his wife with Kelly Kelly. Pictures leaked online of the two partying together along with close dancing and a shocking kiss. Jericho was already married making it look even worse than the usual WWE public display of affection. The hot rumor was that the two were an item often hanging out at bars after shows.
2 Triple H & Christy Hemme
A huge urban legend revolved around the real reason Christy Hemme got fired from WWE. Hemme was very popular after winning the initial Diva Search competition. WWE invested a lot of money and time in the Diva Search and Hemme did a solid job getting over as the first winner. It was a huge surprise out of the blue when Christy would be named one of the wrestlers released from their contract.
1 Stephanie McMahon & Randy Savage
Triple H’s urban legend is pretty wild, but his wife Stephanie McMahon has the biggest one in wrestling history. Randy Savage leaving WWE in the mid-90s led to him never returning again. Unlike the majority of other wrestlers to have ugly falling outs with WWE, Vince McMahon never made peace with Savage. Former WWE writers have claimed McMahon told them in meetings Savage would never be welcomed back.
A rumor started to become red hot online that Savage slept with an underage Stephanie McMahon to earn the black-listing from WWE. Some wrestlers like Scott Steiner claim the story has some truth behind it. Wrestling fans are hoping Stephanie addresses it one way or the other in her upcoming book to finally answer it. It has become the biggest romance urban legend in wrestling history and Stephanie is the only one that can answer it.
