The dating carousel in wrestling will create some of the most bizarre couples possible. Wrestling is considered a weird industry in general given it is unparalleled to any other form of entertainment. Couples to form featuring at least one wrestler means there is going to be some wackiness involved in the romance. Many of the wrestlers end up dating someone significantly older or younger based off the range of different ages in each company. There are also wrestlers that just like dating out of their age range in general regardless of if their partner is involved in the business or not.
We'll take a look at some of the more peculiar relationships to form through the years. The ages between these two partners in each relationship are shocking and disturbing. It surprises most to realize that the two partners are so drastically different in life experience. The romances become disturbing due to how young one of the partners, how old a partner is or both. A combination of current and former romances to fit the criteria will be examined as we discuss them all. These are fifteen of the most disturbing pro wrestling relationship age gaps of all time.
15 The Undertaker and Michelle McCool: 15 years
The relationship between The Undertaker and Michelle McCool has been disturbing for many reasons. Undertaker being a full fifteen years older than McCool already makes it a weird looking in from the outside. The timing of this relationship started when the two were both on the WWE roster. One of the top names entering a romance with a younger woman that coincidentally received the biggest push of her career is not a good look.
14 Bret Hart and Stephanie Washington: 26 years
Bret Hart has been out of the spotlight for many years but still managed to end up in a relationship with someone significantly younger than him. Many fans believe that Bret is still married to Julie, the ex-wife featured in the Wrestling with Shadows documentary cursing out Triple H after the Montreal Screwjob. That relationship ended many years ago and Hart is now married to another woman.
13 Enzo Amore and Liv Morgan: 8 years
A relationship to recently end was one of the most disturbing ones at the time. Enzo Amore is known as being one of the most annoying people in the wrestling business. The other wrestlers have kicked him out of the locker room for many months now with no end to this mutiny in sight. Enzo and Liv Morgan worked together at a Hooters location years before either joined WWE.
12 Bray Wyatt and Jojo: 7 years
The current relationship between Bray Wyatt and Jojo is considered disturbing for quite a few reasons. This romance started in the form of an affair. Wyatt was outed as cheating on his wife with the young WWE ring announcer Jojo. It just would become weirder when it was revealed that the combination of Wyatt and Jojo is now an official couple.
11 Sunny and David Starr: 19 years
Tammy “Sunny” Sytch has dated countless wrestlers younger than her through the years. However, the most disturbing one may have been when she dated independent wrestler David Starr in 2013. Currently, Starr is a rising name in smaller promotions and is regarded as a very talented performer. This past decision to date Sytch may have been the one big mistake of his early career.
10 Hulk Hogan and Jennifer McDaniel: 21 years
Hulk Hogan’s love life has presented some of the worst stories about him. The breaking up between him and ex-wife Linda Hogan led to him losing most of his money and many of his shameful moments being made public. There was the leaked tape with his friend’s wife that showed him delivering a racist rant that got him fired from WWE.
9 Batista and Melina: 10 years
The controversial relationship between Batista and Melina actually ended up hurting John Morrison’s career more than the two people involved here. Morrison and Melina were still having their on again/off again relationship going as it lasted many years. Melina ended up allegedly cheating on Morrison with Batista when all parties were on the SmackDown roster. Many people in WWE viewed Morrison unfavorable when this story got out.
8 Edge and Beth Phoenix: 7 years
Edge and Beth Phoenix is actually one of the most likable couples in wrestling. Both had tremendous careers entertaining fans for many years. Despite being retired, they each still find a way to do the wrestling business proud by being seemingly great ambassadors. Many fans would be shocked to realize that Edge is actually seven years older than Beth.
7 CM Punk and AJ Lee: 9 years
Another couple that doesn’t seem to have a strong age gap between them is the married couple of CM Punk and AJ Lee. However, there is nearly a decade of life between them as Punk is nine years older than Lee. AJ would still be in her prime today if she wanted to continue wrestling at just 30 years old. The decision to retire at 28 came due to the controversial falling out between WWE and her husband.
6 Matt Hardy and Reby Sky: 12 years
The shocking 12 year age gap exists between current married couple Matt Hardy and Reby Sky. Matt started the year as red hot as any other wrestler in the business. That made it easy for us to forget that he is actually 43 years old. His wife Reby Sky is surprisingly over a decade younger than him at 31 years old. The two now have a happy family together.
5 Triple H and Stephanie McMahon: 7 years
The age gap between Triple h and Stephanie McMahon being seven years isn’t too shocking but it is disturbing when thinking about their relationship starting. Vince McMahon brought Stephanie into WWE for an on-screen role at the very young age of 23. Her relationship with Triple H started in her early 20s while he was already at 30.
4 Sable and Brock Lesnar: 10 years
Sable and Brock Lesnar presents a different dynamic than most of the other relationships here. The majority of wrestling romances features the man being the older person in the couple. Sable is actually older than Brock Lesnar by a decade. Brock is approaching 40 years old as Sable hits 50. The two seem to be happy together on their secluded farm life in Canada.
3 Michael Hayes and Rosa Mendes: 20 years
One of the most problematic relationships in WWE history took place between Michael Hayes and Rosa Mendes. Hayes has been an influential producer backstage among the most powerful people in the company. The fact that he ended up dating one of the female performers just looked shady from all aspects imaginable.
2 Jerry Lawler and Lauryn McBride: 39 years
We could have gone with many choices here for Jerry Lawler, but his current relationship is the most disturbing. Lawler has been in relationships with women decades younger than him for a long time and has even been accused of hitting on underage girls in the past. Despite the negative reputation it gives him, Lawler refused to quit on his ways.
1 Alberto Del Rio and Paige: 15 years
The age gap between Alberto Del Rio and Paige’s current relationship is something that has become more of a story than in other romances. Del Rio being 15 years older than Paige made people in WWE try to prevent Paige from entering this relationship. Paige went against their wishes and everything went poorly for all sides.
Del Rio has continuously trashed WWE despite them employing Paige and her wanting to work for them. There was the incident of both wrestlers being accused of domestic abuse after they had a public fight. Paige entering something so serious at the young age of her mid-20s just seems to add negative stories to her life with each passing month. Many of her friends are reportedly concerned for her well-being when dating Alberto. The age gap and volatile personalities led to a disturbing relationship for the worst of reasons.
