WWE's backstage environment seems to operate much like a high school or college campus does. Relationships are fragile and infidelity is rampant. One aspect of WWE's backstage environment which doesn't get talked about too much is the fact that there are more women around now than ever before. Now that the WWE is increasing the number of women on each brand, the dynamic backstage has changed.
Scott Hall said not long ago that he thinks the biggest change in terms of wrestling now and back in his day is that there are more women around. Despite this, WWE has seemed to do very little in regards to coming up with a way to deal with all of the drama that backstage relationships create. In general, they will release people who are involved in drama with someone on their roster who they feel draws money. We've seen women who were rumored to have been involved with John Cena let go after simply because WWE didn't want there to be any drama concerning one of their biggest stars.
This is not to say that everyone in WWE is running around with each other. There are also those who avoid the drama. In this article, we take a look at eight women in wrestling who have been with the most men and eight who are the biggest prudes.
16 Charlotte Flair (Most Gents)
31-year-old Charlotte Flair has already been married and divorced twice over. Her career is starting to resemble her father's in more ways than one in that regards.
Charlotte married Riki Johnson in 2010 but the marriage ended the following year. She also married Bram who you might remember was is in Impact Wrestling for a while. They were married from 2013 to 2015.
Additionally, Charlotte was linked to Alberto Delrio before he ended up with Paige. It's doubtful Charlotte is too broken up about the whole ordeal. It didn't exactly work out well for Paige and Alberto, after all. Nowadays Charlotte appears to be focusing more on her career than her personal life, which is probably for the best. Her family history isn't exactly awash with a history of successful marriages.
15 Bayley (Prude)
Pamela Rose Martinez, better known as Bayley, is engaged to Aaron Solow who is himself a wrestler. Solow wrestles on the independent scene but has appeared a few times on WWE programming. He was an alternate during the 2016 Cruiserweight Classic and has also performed in an enhancement talent role on both NXT and 205 live.
Solow and Bayley are both from the SoCal area and our big 49ers fans. They have been together for quite some time now. It was reported last year that the two became engaged, although neither of them commented publicly about it. Although, ever since Rusev and Lana announced their engagement through social media, it could be understandable if wrestlers are a little hesitant to do the same now.
14 Mickie James (Most Gents)
Mickie James has had an interesting history of dating wrestlers. During her first stint with WWE, she was engaged to Kenny from the Spirit Squad. The couple got engaged even though Kenny was only 21 at the time while Mickie was seven years his senior.
Then James decided to have an affair with John Cena. In what had to have been a funny and sad scene, Kenny caught Mickie in the process of Googling to see if news of Cena and her affair had leaked online. Ironically, news of the affair would only be revealed after Kenny caught Mickie searching to see if it was.
Kenny was moved to a different brand and eventually released. Mickie too was released after Cena broke up with her. Then while gone from the organization, she married former Impact World Champion, Nick "Magnus" Aldis.
13 Alicia Fox (Prude)
Alicia Fox may not come off as a prude but she's been in WWE over a decade and there are only reports of her ever having dated one wrestler. The "Foxy One" and Wade Barrett were believed to have been together at one point, although the relationship is said to not have lasted long.
Fox did an interview on Lillian Garcia's podcast back in October and much of what she said was revealing about her lack of relationships. She witnessed her mother being physically abused as a child - that's not the greatest visual for a child growing up. Fox also mentioned that she was bringing a lot of the stress and anxiety over her mother's situation with her to work in WWE. It seems things are going better for her now, however. She was even Raw’s team captain at the Survivor Series.
12 Torrie Wilson (Most Gents)
Torrie Wilson keeps busy these days by selling workout videos and similar products on her website. It's been an interesting last couple of decades for Torrie and her dating history helps to illustrate how all over the place her life has been.
The now 42-year-old was married to Billy Kidman from 2003 to 2008. There's nothing out of the ordinary there, Kidman seems like a good guy and they were both in WWE for the majority of their marriage. It seems that Wilson would be involved in another relationship before her marriage with Kidman officially ended, however. Much like Mickie James, the appeal of the Spirit Squad was just too much for Torrie Wilson to withstand. She began a relationship with Nicky or Nick Mitchell from the group.
Torrie and Nicky broke up in 2011 and Wilson began dating baseball player Alex Rodriguez, afterward. That relationship ended in 2015.
11 Alexa Bliss (Prude)
Early on in Alexa Bliss's NXT career, there were rumors she was somewhat promiscuous behind the scenes. The only problem with the rumors was that it never really came out who she had been with or who was spreading this information. She has only ever been in one confirmed relationship since she's been in WWE.
Bliss and Buddy Murphy are now engaged and are believed to have been together since not long after both started in the WWE developmental system in 2013. At the moment, the team of Blake and Murphy seem to be done and no future angles involving Buddy Murphy seem to be forthcoming. Based on the sounds of it, Alexa Bliss is joining the ranks of female Superstars who are considerably more successful than their wrestling spouses.
10 Stacy Keibler (Most Gents)
Much like her good friend Torrie Wilson, Stacy Keibler has a rather up and down dating history throughout her life. When she first debuted in WCW as Miss Hancock (a gimmick we have Vince Russo to thank for), she was dating David Flair. Nothing wrong with David Flair, he seems like a good guy and his last name is Flair. Then things would get a little more interesting with Stacy's romantic life, however.
Stacy began dating Hollywood heartthrob George Clooney in July 2011. The relationship would end two years later in 2013. She then began dating her now husband a few months later. The two had been friends for a long time before beginning dating which should serve as hope for men everywhere currently stuck in someone's "friend zone".
The couple were married in the spring of 2014 and welcomed their first daughter into the world that August.
9 Sasha Banks (Prude)
Last year, 25-year-old Sasha Banks married her boyfriend, Sarath Ton, who wrestled under the name Kid Mikaze. Her husband now works as a costume designer for WWE but was a wrestler on the independent scene for some time. There are no reports of Banks having been with anyone else in wrestling.
Fans reaction to Sasha Banks's husband have not been pleasant. Banks took part in an interview with AfterBuzz TV and said that one of the reasons she tends to be private regarding her personal life is because of the heat that her husband gets on social media. She told AfterBuzz that she'll look at stuff that people send him on Twitter saying that he's not good enough for her which is infuriating for Sasha. Banks has a bit of a love-hate relationship with the fans. She's openly complained about overzealous vans at airports stocking wrestlers in order to get autographs.
8 Paige (Most Gents)
25-year-old Paige has had a rather up-and-down personal life, to say the least. Her most well-known relationship was with Alberto Del Rio, although the couple has recently split. Paige is also said to have been involved with several wrestlers while in NXT. Xavier Woods and Brad Maddox are two names who have been bandied about in regards to her.
When Paige first revealed that she and Alberto were dating on an episode of Total Divas, it caused Natalya to become concerned. Natalya pointed out that Paige had previously said she was engaged to a musician and that relationship just kind of fizzled out.
Paige seems to jump all-in on her relationships only for them to come back and bite her later. Now that she's back in WWE and away from Alberto, there are many who hope that the very talented wrestler will have the support system she needs.
7 Becky Lynch (Prude)
Whether Becky Lynch has chosen to not be dating around too much in her personal life or if her "pun" sense of humor has simply scared away most of the men in her life is not clear. What is clear is that Becky has only been linked to one man since she's been in WWE's spotlight. That guy is the mixed martial artist "Cool Hand" Luke Sanders. Sanders has a record of 11-1 at the moment with another fight coming up shortly.
Lynch can usually be seen in the crowd during Sanders' fights, and you just know it was her that came up with the "Cool Hand Luke" nickname.
As of this writing, Lynch is getting in her first gig as an actress in a WWE studio movie. She is currently filming the Marine 6.
6 Kelly Kelly (Most Gents)
Kelly Kelly has been rumored to be returning to WWE for most of the year. How much this has to do with her ending marriage to NHL player Sheldon Souray is not overly clear, however. Perhaps the recently single Kelly is interested in getting up to her old tricks backstage at WWE events again.
Kelly was in a long-term relationship with Andrew Martin, better known as Test, but she was linked with several other male wrestlers as well. Randy Orton, who is not exactly the most clean-cut guy on the current WWE roster, made public comments about Kelly Kelly having been with ten or more male wrestlers throughout her WWE stint. Popular names rumored include Chris Jericho, Batista, and Dolph Ziggler, but Ziggler seems to sleep with everyone in her defense.
5 Carmella (Prude)
Carmella has only been linked with one man since beginning her WWE career. That man is 7-feet tall, and you can't teach that! Carmella and Big Cass are an item behind the scenes, something James Ellsworth didn't figure out until after he had been released. The couple has been together ever since their days in NXT.
Before beginning her WWE journey, Carmella worked as a cheerleader. She was on the cheer team of the New England Patriots and Los Angeles Lakers. It should be noted that Carmella is not actually the Princess of Staten Island. She is from Massachusetts and also went to the University of Rhode Island.
As of this writing, Carmella is still holding onto her Money in the Bank briefcase. She has yet to find the perfect time to cash it in.
4 Lita (Most Gents)
Amy "Lita" Dumas is one of the most influential female wrestlers of all-time. She also has had one of the more active personal lives in wrestling. Lita and Matt Hardy began dating in 2000 but would later break up in a very public manner. While Matt was off injured, Lita carried out an affair with Edge. The whole thing got turned into an angle and reportedly hurt Lita's motivation to continue in the business.
After leaving wrestling she began touring with and dating a member of her band, The Luchagors. The band released an album to little fanfare and eventually broke up. After leaving music, Lita began dating CM Punk but became the odd-woman-out during yet another love triangle. This time Punk left her for AJ Lee, who coincidentally had been a huge Lita fan growing up.
3 Natalya (Prude)
Natalya and Tyson Kidd have been together since they were kids. Tyson was a family friend who would always be over to practice moves in the Hart family dungeon and it is said that their relationship began when they were both young teenagers. They've been together their entire adult lives.
Natalya and Tyson Kidd are the only ones out of the third generation of Harts to still be in WWE. David Hart Smith now wrestles as Davey Boy Smith Jr in New Japan Pro Wrestling as one half of the Killer Elite Squad. Teddy Hart's career has been plagued by scandals, legal problems, and just general weirdness. Unfortunately, many felt he was the most talented one of the bunch.
After suffering a horrible neck injury in 2015, Tyson has moved into a Road Agent role with WWE.
2 Sunny (Most Gents)
Sunny is well known for having been promiscuous backstage in WWE. Unfortunately, she was in a relationship with Chris Candido during most of this. It was Chris who would introduce Sunny to wrestling when they were both still in high school. Sunny eventually made the decision to end an affair with Shawn Michaels for the purpose of repairing her relationship with Chris.
She has been open about her promiscuity in recent years, giving tell-all interviews about the men that she had slept with. She added Dolph Ziggler to her list sometime over the last few years, creating an interesting multi-generational approach to her promiscuity.
Drug and alcohol problems have had their impact on Sunny throughout her life. She finished a long stint in rehab earlier this year and seems to be doing better.
1 Trish Stratus (Prude)
Similar to Natalya, Trish Stratus has been with her husband ever since both were just teenagers. They had been together 14 years when they finally got married on September 30th, 2006, not long after she officially retired from the wrestling business.
Trish is still only 41 years old and could seemingly make a comeback if she wanted to. She's a busy business owner in her hometown of Toronto Ontario Canada, however, in addition to raising two kids. It's entirely likely that Trish simply doesn't have time for WWE, anymore. She will often make appearances when WWE comes to her hometown as she has always shown that she wants to represent Toronto as much as possible.
Looking back on all those crazy things Vince McMahon made Trish do during the Attitude Era and knowing that her high school boyfriend was watching it all play out on TV is kind of funny and harsh in retrospect.
