WWE is one of the biggest public entities that make it nearly impossible to keep a private life private. The rumor mill in professional wrestling is unlike any other sport and is more like traditional entertainment tabloids. News about the backstage gossip, drama between wrestlers and just about anything behind closed doors becomes common knowledge. The rise of social media also plays a role in this with wrestlers intentionally or accidentally leaking information about their personal time. This combination leads to a romantic life being more public than anyone could possibly want. Wrestling fans tend to know which performers are dating each other or which are dating outside of the industry.
The relationship statuses of the majority of wrestlers on the WWE roster are commonly known by any fan that uses the internet to read wrestling websites or keep up with the sport on social media. There are a select few performers with mystery surrounding their love lives. We'll take a look at some of the less known relationship statuses of a select list of WWE stars. Both sides will be discussed with eight active WWE stars you didn’t realize are in relationships right now and seven you didn’t realize were single.
15 Relationship: Bray Wyatt
The mysterious personality of Bray Wyatt on WWE television makes him hard to figure out. Wyatt does such a great job playing the cult leader type character that you can’t imagine him being a family. It's the exact opposite in real life with Bray providing for a family. Wyatt is married with two children. The marriage of Wyatt took place at a younger age than most given he hasn’t even hit 30 years old yet.
Wyatt lives a normal private life keeping his wife and children out of the spotlight. The relationship of Wyatt is one of the rare romance stories in WWE where the wrestler doesn’t like to talk about it. Bray strongly believes in keeping some elements of kayfabe alive. Wyatt’s character having a loving family at home would make it harder to buy into.
14 Single: Emma
One of the recent relationships in WWE featured Emma dating Zack Ryder. The two would frequently post pictures together on social media on their various vacation trips. Emma and Ryder quietly broke up at some point over the past few months. Various posts and pictures on recent vacations saw Emma alone or hanging out with Summer Rae and Sasha Banks.
Emma appears to be happily single after ending the relationship with Ryder. The fact that WWE split them up in the draft with Ryder on SmackDown and Emma on Raw likely didn’t help. Both also have been dealing with serious injury issues that makes it difficult for two people to stay on the same wavelength. Emma was definitely the more impressive half of their relationship but is now single.
13 Relationship: Zack Ryder
The relationship between Zack Ryder and Emma ending sees Emma single, but that isn’t the story for Ryder. Recent social media posts have shown Ryder with a new girlfriend that happens to be another woman in the wrestling industry. Ryder is dating TNA star Chelsea Green and the two have been spotted together on the beach in Florida.
Green is currently one of the top female heels in TNA and had a short stint in WWE as a contestant on Tough Enough. Ryder and Chelsea is one of the rare inter-promotional couples to take place between WWE and TNA stars. It definitely didn’t take Ryder long to go from one wrestling relationship to another. The dream for the couple has to be Green getting signed by WWE and the two getting to travel together.
12 Single: Big E
Big E is involved in many weddings but he is not currently in a relationship. The strongest member of New Day used his free time to become an ordained minister. Big E posted a tweet on social media stating that he was officiating weddings during his off time. Wrestling fans have their chance to get married by one of the most beloved WWE stars.
That is the only type of wedding Big E will be involved in the near future. Big E has stated he's single multiple times in various humorous tweets. There was some fan speculation of relationships with AJ Lee and Kaitlyn each in the past, but they were all really close friends. Big E is likely the only single wrestler to be a major part of many weddings.
11 Relationship: Xavier Woods
Big E is the only single member of New Day. Kofi Kingston is well known for being married with a family at home. Xavier Woods is getting ready to join his side as a family man. WWE revealed online that Woods is not only married, but that his wife is currently pregnant with the couple expecting their first child. The fact that WWE is giving New Day time off until Kingston recovers from his injury makes it possible for Woods to help his pregnant wife at home.
Woods is known for holding onto his childhood passions such as video gaming, anime and other nerdy interests. Any future child of Woods will likely have a great selection of toys. The marriage of Woods is one that was really ever discussed until the news of the pregnancy.
10 Single: Luke Gallows
Luke Gallows was involved with fellow wrestler Amber O’Neal back during his time in New Japan. The two would appear together at independent shows and Amber received the opportunity for a female wrestler to have a match in NJPW. The marriage between Gallows and O’Neal appears to have ended over the most ridiculous of reasons.
Amber went on a huge social media rant when WWE booked Gallows and Karl Anderson in segments with Dana Brooke. The comments of O’Neal insulted Brooke for getting too close to her man. It allegedly caused a rift between the two to end their romance. Gallows getting hired by WWE was the best thing to happen to his professional life but caused issues with his romantic life, enough to make him single once again.
9 Relationship: Enzo Amore
Everyone knows Big Cass is in a relationship with fellow star Carmella, but Enzo Amore also has a relationship with another female wrestler. Enzo is currently dating NXT women’s wrestling star Liv Morgan. Both wrestlers are from New Jersey giving them a common interest that likely helped bring them together. Amore and Morgan have been spotted together after shows at various places.
Unlike Cass and Carmella, it appears they're still trying to keep it somewhat private. They don’t reference each other on social media or upload pictures together. Still, fans spot them at hotels and restaurants during the weekends of the bigger WWE shows that get all of the rosters together in the same place. Maybe one day we'll get the matchup of Cass and Carmella against Enzo and Liv.
8 Single: Dolph Ziggler
One recent relationship in the wrestling world featured Dolph Ziggler and Dana Brooke being linked together over the past couple of years. It appears whatever romantic relationship they had in the past is now over. Dana posted a picture with her alleged new love interest and bodybuilding competitor Dallas McCarver. Fans bombarded the comments asking about her relationship with Ziggler.
Brooke referred to Ziggler as a close friend but made it clear they were not together. Ziggler has made jokes on social media about being single and he's known for being a shameless womanizer. Common knowledge would tell you the two have broken up with Dana being in a new relationship but Ziggler remains on the single side of things. The assumption of Ziggler being with Brooke is no longer the case.
7 Relationship: Summer Rae
The women’s wrestlers in WWE have a harder time trying to keep their relationships private. Sasha Banks and Bayley are dating lesser known guys, but fans still are very aware about the relationships. One woman that doesn’t have her romantic life discussed that often is Summer Rae. The stunning sidelined women’s wrestler has shown her boyfriend on social media and it's someone with minor fame as well.
Summer is dating basketball player Shavlik Randolph. The career of Randolph saw him play in the NBA for a few seasons before having to move overseas to continue it. Randolph is now playing in China and Summer has uploaded Instagram posts of her time there with him. It's one of the less profile relationships in wrestling despite featuring two people that have worked for the WWE and NBA.
6 Single: Braun Strowman
The mysterious life of Braun Strowman makes him someone that fans don’t know too much about. An unplanned misfortune showed us the status of Strowman’s single life. A screenshot surfaced online of Braun’s Tinder page where he was looking to meet potential love interests. It was under his real name and featured personal pictures from his private life.
Strowman shows that even wrestlers will use dating apps and look online for their next significant other. However, it usually isn’t a good idea for public figures. No one thought less of Braun for his Tinder reveal but it's definitely an insight into his personal life. The rise of Strowman’s professional life means he may look to match it with fulfillment on the romantic side, but he's single for the time being.
5 Relationship: Aiden English
An under the radar relationship in wrestling makes Aiden English part of the Guerrero family. WWE hired Shaul Guerrero to a developmental contract hoping she would reach the same success of parents Eddie and Vickie Guerrero. Shaul did not have the wrestling talent but one good thing came from her short career. English and Guerrero started dating during their time working together and remained a couple when she left the business.
The two made it official for the long run when they got married in January of 2016. Shaul and Vickie made sure to attend the SmackDown show with the debut of The Vaudevillains to see English’s first match on national television. English is in the midst of a transformation into a singles character and you have to believe his wife is rooting for him.
4 Single: Charlotte Flair
The love life of Charlotte Flair has seen her go through two failed marriages. Charlotte divorced unknown Thomas Latimer and former wrestler Bram, both after the relationships could not be solved. Another short romance featured her dating Alberto Del Rio before it ended and he moved into a relationship with Paige. Following the Del Rio ending, it appears Charlotte decided to remain single.
Flair confirmed she is single in various interviews over the past year. Her father Ric Flair apparently tried to set her up with NBA superstar Kevin Love, but nothing came from it. Charlotte has more than enough on her plate right now as the face of the Women’s Division. WWE is reaching new ground for the division with Flair being one of the major reasons why. Who needs a boyfriend when you can make history?
3 Relationship: Kalisto
A very endearing couple in wrestling that very few people know about is Kalisto and his love interest Abigail. The two got married and she often shows up for the bigger WWE events to watch him perform. The company did show her on-screen during the past two Hall of Fame events. Given he has to wear a mask to protect his identity; she decided to make things easier for them both at the HOF by wearing a mask as well.
The happy couple both dressed to the nines in a great suit and dress but decided to add the matching masks. You know it's true love when your wife is willing to wear a luchador mask that matches her dress specifically for you. Kalisto’s wife isn’t famous but she is clearly one of the cooler partners one can have.
2 Single: Finn Balor
Finn Balor is arguably the most successful wrestler when it comes to keeping his private life private. The love life of Balor is never discussed on social media or in interviews. Fans so badly want a glimpse into the details of the lives of their favorite Superstars that they will sometimes look for anything. Recent social media speculations saw people wondering if Balor was dating WWE broadcaster Cathy Kelley.
Balor and Kelley posted Instagram posts at the same location to create the rumors. Neither has shown any hints of being together since then and it's more than likely just a fan created theory. The few glimpses into Balor’s personal lives see him refer to his parents and family as his most treasured loved ones. Finn is living the single life as he moves up the rankings in WWE.
1 Relationship: Seth Rollins
The love life of Seth Rollins has created nothing but drama for him on the WWE main roster. Rollins allegedly cheated on his ex-fiance with former NXT wrestler Zahra Schreiber resulting in the fiancé posting nude pictures of them both from her phone. Zahra then was involved in controversy regarding offensive social media posts from the past. Rollins broke up with her and appeared to be single for quite some time.
The past few months have revealed he's dating a new woman. Rollins is currently seeing Sarah Alesandrelli. Sarah is a close friend of wrestler Scarlett Bordeaux with the two working together at a high end Chicago night club. Rollins and Sarah posted pictures together during a vacation in Mexico and Sarah has tweeted about their relationship. We can only hope this is the relationship for Rollins that doesn’t have an ugly ending.
