Many real-life couples happen because of wrestling. Karen Jarrett and Jeff Jarrett both met in TNA albeit she's the ex-wife of Kurt Angle. Jim Cornette and his wife wife met in OVW. Sunny managed Chris Candido and the two eventually married even though she was extremely unfaithful. On the current roster this is much of the same. Many couples get into a relationship after being involved with each other in some shape or form. Some take part in same backstage segment. Some train together down in NXT. Some have met prior to WWE. Some are willing to go as far as cheating on a former lover for a current lover. With some of these relationships, they will have been going on forever. Some of them you might not even heard about. Time will go by and the chances for some of these couples staying together are slim to none. However, some relationships are more likely to stay together than others.
Here are 8 WWE relationships that will last and 7 relationships that will come to an end.
15 Will: Cesaro and Sara Del Ray
Cesaro is a wrestler loved by all fans but only one person truly has his heart. That person is not Kassius Ohno, Jack Swagger, or Tyson Kidd all of which are former tag partners of his. That person is NXT trainer and former standout Women's wrestler Sara Del Ray. Del Ray was a popular Women's wrestler on the independent circuit but never got the chance to show her skills in the struggling WWE Women's Division. She did however become the head Women's trainer in NXT. She is responsible for the development of the likes of Charlotte, Bayley, Sasha Banks, Emma, and Becky Lynch. Simply put she is responsible for bring acceptable Women's wrestling to WWE. The two have managed and even fought each other on the indies and have a relationship that isn't out there as much as others.
14 Won't: Big Cass and Carmella
The self-proclaimed "Queen of Staten Island" managed her current boyfriend Big Cass in NXT. She managed Enzo and Cass in NXT while they were both incredibly over. Now Enzo and Cass are getting as their shtick is getting old to many of the fans. Meanwhile, Carmella is paired with James Ellsworth and the two aren't really doing much on SmackDown either. Carmella has much more talent than Cass in the ring and on the mic. Cass is only relevant because of Enzo and that's waning. However, after Enzo and Cass eventually break-up and Cass will more than likely get a Roman Reigns-like push. Both Carmella and Big Cass are young and likely won't be together forever.
13 Will: Rusev and Lana
Rusev is one the most underrated acts in wrestling. When he debuted on the main roster in 2014, he was arguably the best foreign heel in WWE history. In 2015, they ruined him by having him lose to Cena three times and putting him in the dreadful feud with Summer Rae and Dolph Ziggler. Then he was a member of The League of Nations, a stable that lasted less than six months. However, Rusev bounced back and had a fun reign as United States Champion. Similar to his first run as U.S. Champion he ran into an unstoppable force. He ran into Roman Reigns who completely destroyed him. All of this occurred while his real-life wife Lana by his side.
12 Won't: Dolph Ziggler and Dana Brooke
Dolph Ziggler has had a tumultuous run in WWE. A run that has featured many lows and truly only one high. He went from having all the fans on his side to virtually none. It is believed that Ziggler only remained in WWE because of his current girlfriend Dana Brooke. Dana was signed by WWE mainly because she was a former bodybuilder. Dana is an example of WWE going back to what they use to look for in Women's wrestlers. To put it bluntly, she's bad. With Sara Del Ray being the head trainer and Ziggler being her boyfriend she has to get better in the ring. She was called up way to early and it showed in quickly. She was called up despite having photos leaked of her and that had to have been something Dolph wasn't pleased about.
11 Will: Daniel Bryan and Brie Bella
From the little of Total Divas I have seen, Daniel Bryan seems like the nicest and realest person on this show. He changed the ways of his wife Brie Bella who was exactly like sister. She turned more like him and became more nature friendly. Before her retirement, Brie's ring work saw an improvement. This is obviously because of her husband Daniel Bryan. She put on a good match with Stephanie McMahon who hadn't wrestled in forever at that point. She stuck by his side when he had to announce his retirement from wrestling. The two are expecting a baby that is arriving any day now. Babies keep relationships together and the same should be for this happily married couple.
10 Won't: Dean Ambrose and Renee Young
The "Lunatic Fringe" is struggling in WWE right now. He's the Intercontinental Champion and he's not doing anything with the title. They missed the boat on having him turn heel and rejuvenate his character. At this point he's just becoming a complete goofball. They brought in his real-life girlfriend at the time Renee Young. Young had a segment with The Miz where she slapped him. It looked promising but didn't go anywhere. Instead The Miz feuded with John Cena and Nikki Bella. The two were recently married but who knows if Ambrose can change his partying ways. He was a heavy drug user and was very promiscuous. They also were split up on the "Superstar Shakeup" with Ambrose going to SmackDown.
9 Will: The Undertaker and Michelle McCool
We saw The Undertaker wrestle his final match at WrestleMania 33. We saw him hug his the former WWE Diva Michelle McCool. McCool was a very talented Women's wrestler that didn't have very good talent to work with. The two have an astounding age gap of 15 years. They got married in 2010. This marriage would be 'Taker's third. The one prior to this was with Sara. The Undertaker had Sara's name tattooed on his throat. That tattoo is know covered up. His ex-wife is known by most fans because they had her be "stalked" by Diamond Dallas Page. That decision ruined DDP's WWE run. McCool now has a child from The Undertaker. Michelle McCool provides us with pictures of The Undertaker living his normal life.
8 Won't: Alexa Bliss and Murphy
NXT's Murphy needs a complete repackaging. With a lackluster Tag division, only God knows why the team of him and Blake were broken up. They are both bland. Alexa Bliss actually added character to the team and she was moved up to the main roster. Bliss is the real-life girlfriend of Murphy. That statement right there upset many male wrestling fans around the world. WWE obviously sees something with Alexa Bliss. She's already a two-time Women's Champion on the main roster despite the fact she never won the Women's Championship in NXT. Meanwhile the career of Buddy Murphy is stuck in the doldrums. They're both young and it's only a matter before they breakup.
7 Will: The Miz and Maryse
The Miz and Maryse had several segments on Raw together in 2009. From there, they developed a relationship. They married in 2014 and The Miz was able to bring her back to the WWE. She has managed her husband since and he has gone on to become one of the most entertaining stars on SmackDown. She fits with The Miz character perfectly. The Nikki Bella and John Cena parodies were tremendous and helped build a match that made no sense at the time. Unfortunately they lost when they clearly should have went over. Now the two have moved over to Raw. The Miz thrived on Smackdown and hopefully he doesn't lose that steam. Maryse helped to make The Miz a great character after the Brand Split which has been "Awesome"
6 Won't: Paige and Albert Del Rio
Paige's WWE's most wild and uncontrollable wrestler. She's out of control. Scandal after scandal, suspension after suspension, and incident after incident have led to Paige having a ton of heat with upper WWE management. Paige and former WWE Superstar Alberto Del Rio recently got married. There's a 15 year age gap between the two. Not only that, but Del Rio cheated on his wife and wasn't officially divorced when two started dating. Who knows if Paige will ever wrestle for WWE again. Del Rio bashes the company as well as Triple H when he has too much to drink. It'd probably be best for both parties to go their separate ways but knowing WWE, that is unlikely.
5 Will: Jimmy Uso and Naomi
Along with Daniel Bryan, these two are also two of the more normal people on Total Divas. Naomi is finally getting recognized for her talent as she is currently the SmackDown Women's Champion. Her husband Jimmy Uso is one-half of the SmackDown Tag Team Champions and The Usos are the best they've ever been. They married in 2014 and Naomi serves as stepmother his kids. The two met when they were both in FCW. The Usos snuck up on and attacked the team of Santino and Vladimir Kozlov. Naomi was a dancer for Brodus Clay. Both debuts are not the best but now is the high point for the couple. These two should remain together forever as both of them seem loyal.
4 Won't: CM Punk and AJ Lee
CM Punk has been with many women wrestlers in his day. This list includes Beth Phoenix, Maria Kanellis, Daffney, Mickey James, Lita, and his wife AJ Lee. Punk and Lee married on the day Punk received the proverbial pink slip from WWE. Lee left the WWE after WrestleMania the following year. She did this to show loyalty to her husband and I respect that. However, AJ Lee missed out on the "Women's Revolution" because of her husband. Lee was forced to carry matches against sub-par talent and not the talent that is currently on the main roster because of Punk. With Punk more than likely to return to WWE after his next UFC fight (which more than likely be a loss) Lee should be angry at him for making her leave the WWE.
3 Will: Edge and Beth Phoenix
Beth Phoenix' Hall of Fame induction is one of the biggest highlights of WrestleMania weekend. She celebrated a Hall of Fame career and like AJ Lee, missed out on the opportunity to wrestle real Women's wrestlers. Phoenix was a great talent but matches suffered because of the talent she was with. In her Hall of Fame speech she gave a very heart-felt tribute to her husband Edge. She brought out Tony Chimel as well who was made famous by Edge. During a moment that should have been her own, she took the time to pay homage her husband. It doesn't get any realer than that. Edge and Phoenix have two children together and were married on Edge's 43rd birthday.
2 Won't: John Cena and Nikki Bella
After WrestleMania 33 John Cena and Nikki Bella proved to be the "It" couple. Their segment was sealed with a proposal. John Cena and Nikki Bella were both married prior to their relationship. John Cena was married for three years until his divorce where he was accused of cheating. The divorce made John Cena very protective of everything he owns which we see on Total Divas and The Miz parodied him leading up to their match at WrestleMania. Nikki got married when she was young. She did it spontaneously and it was not a good idea. They divorced quickly after that. Nikki and John are set to wed and but since both are divorced it will be interesting to see if it works out between the two.
1 Will: Triple H and Stephanie McMahon
Triple H left a relationship with Chyna to be with Stephanie McMahon. Some say it was to become a member of the McMahon family. Whatever it is there is no question that he loves Stephanie McMahon. They've been married for close to 14 years and the two have three daughters. They are more than likely going to be the two running the WWE in the future. Anything they do has to be better than what's going on now with Vince still at the helm. Hopefully when they get Vince out of the way they will no longer be on television. Stephanie McMahon on TV has ran its course and her gimmick of emasculating heels and faces make no sense whatsoever.
