It's not uncommon for people to fall in love at the workplace. Think about it, most people spend eight or more hours at work. That's why it's such a natural thing for co-workers to explore dating. The Superstars of the WWE are regular people just like you and me. They date each other, fall in love, and break up. Of course, their lives are a lot more hectic, but they are still human.
The WWE Superstars are on the road for most of the week. They travel around the world with the same people year after year. Many WWE Superstars have had flings, but few have managed to stay together through thick and thin. Couples such as John Cena and Nikki Bella, and Triple H and Stephanie McMahon are prime examples of love in the WWE. They have proven that it's not impossible to be in a happy relationship with a fellow WWE Superstar.
With that being said, not every WWE couple is the same. Some couples are loved and some couples are hated. This list of the Top 8 WWE Couples Who are Jerks In Real Life And 7 Who Are Sweethearts highlights the many of the different personalities that the WWE Superstars bring to their relationships.
16 Jerks: Maryse and The Miz
Anyone who watches Total Divas on E! will tell you just how stuck up Maryse and The Miz can be. Not only is this WWE couple stuck up, but they both happen to be extremely arrogant as well. Miz has been known to be a little obnoxious in the WWE locker room in the past. He's been kept around because he does have some strong mic skills and he's been able to do everything WWE has asked him to do.
With that being said there is just something about an arrogant couple that turns people off. Maryse also tends to come across as a bit stuck up on Total Divas, as she berated her husband for eating meat and seems to pick fights with other couples on the show.
15 Sweethearts: Finn Balor & Cathy Kelley
A lot of WWE couples take advantage of their fame and share their love on social media just so everyone can see how happy and in love they are. That's certainly not Finn Balor and Cathy Kelley's style. The couple has been rumored to have been together for almost a year now, but the only pictures we see of them together are candid shots snapped backstage or out and about in public. Finn Balor is known to be Mr. Congeniality backstage as he seems to get along with just about every one of his coworkers. There's nothing rumored in Cathy Kelley's career that suggest she would be a negative presence backstage. This seems like the kind of couple many of their co-workers fawn over.
13 Jerks: Bray Wyatt & JoJo
Not much is known about how Bray Wyatt and JoJo interact with each other. They're still rumored to be dating after news of their affair came to light in mid 2017. The reason they land here is because of how their relationship started. Bray Wyatt's soon to be ex wife Samantha alleged in a court document that Wyatt had been having an affair with JoJo for a while and Bray essentially left her to look after their two daughters herself. Due to the publicity of that piece of news, Wyatt and JoJo have kept things discreet, but they have been seen showing up to WWE shows together. Still, the very nature of how the relationship started definitely leaves a bad taste in some people's mouths.
12 Sweethearts: Tyson Kidd and Natalya
Tyson Kidd and Natalya have one of those love stories that either makes your heart melt, or if you're not into the mushy stuff, makes you want to hurl. Regardless, this really seems like true love, as Natalya and Tyson have been inseparable since they were teenagers, first as friends, then growing into lovers. Tyson has had a pretty rough couple of years since suffering his devastating neck injury that's all but ended his career, but Natalya has still tried to be supportive of her husband. As for Nattie, every one of her co-workers seems to get along with her, as she's always sought after for advice and never hesitates to lend a helping hand to WWE's newcomers who need more in-ring training. They both come across as good-hearted people.
11 Jerks: Mike & Maria Kenellis
Mike and Maria Kanellis made their WWE debuts (second stint for Maria) in mid 2017 but their future is up in the air with Maria now pregnant and Mike having gotten out of rehab a few months ago. As for their reputations, Maria has been said to be really stubborn while Mike mostly is the quiet one in the relationship. Maria has improved as a performer over the past several years, but not many speak very highly of her and she also has made some enemies backstage. As for her past feud with the Bellas, you can leave that up to interpretation as to who was in the wrong, but Maria's made a negative impression on those who have crossed paths with her.
10 Sweethearts: Naomi and Jimmy Uso
Jimmy Uso and Naomi had one hell of a year in 2017. Naomi's character was given new wings as she defeated the great Alexa Bliss on two occasions to become the Smackdown WWE Women's Champion. At the same time, Jimmy Uso along with his brother became the Tag Team Champions for Smackdown by defeating the New Day in a Hell in a cell match.
Both Naomi and Jimmy Uso are quite popular with the WWE fans. It seems that they are doing great in all aspects of their lives right now. Jimmy and Naomi have been married since 2014, and it looks like that they will be together for quite some time. It would appear that they are still deeply in love and they always have each other's back.
9 Jerks: Dean Ambrose and Renee Young
Dean Ambrose is one of the founding members of the Shield. He is also a former WWE Champion, Tag Team Champion, and Intercontinental Champion. To say that Dean Ambrose has been successful in the WWE thus far would be an understatement. Unfortunately for Ambrose, his wife Renee Young is a bit of a drama queen.
Apparently, Renee has become rather stuck up and arrogant as of late. It seems that tying the knot with Dean Ambrose has turned her into someone that attracts political enemies. And, we all know that creating enemies behind the scenes is a very bad thing, especially in the WWE. Not only is Renee Young hurting her own career with her bad attitude, but it seems that her actions backstage have earned Dean Ambrose a bit of heat as well.
8 Sweethearts: Nikki Bella and John Cena
Contrary to popular belief, Nikki Bella and John Cena are sweethearts to each other and the WWE fans. Not only is John Cena the most popular Superstar in the WWE right now, but he's also one of the most caring. It's well known that John Cena works with several charities, including the Make A Wish Foundation. Say what you want about him, but John Cena has shown that he loves the WWE fans. He also loves giving back to the community and spreading love.
Nikki Bella is also someone who gives back to the WWE fans. She has also worked with charities. Nikki is a positive role model, and she often connects with her fans on social media. Just a quick comment from someone that you look up to can make your day, but many celebrities, athletes, and entrepreneurs fail to accommodate their followers. But, that cannot be said about Nikki Bella and John Cena.
Their lavish lifestyle may come across as pretentious to some, but they simply enjoy the finer aspects of life because both struggled when growing up.
7 Jerks: Sasha Banks and Sarath Ton
Sasha Banks is unquestionably one of the most popular WWE Divas in the world today. She's also extremely beautiful and talented. There is a reason that she's called the boss, and it's because she dominates the ring. Banks is a high-flyer and a risk taker. Sasha is loved by the fans, and it's not hard to see why. She seems like a cool chick that any guy would love to be with. Unfortunately, Sasha Banks is already taken by a WWE costume designer named Sarath Ton. Who saw that coming?
Their inclusion on this list really is more due to Sasha's constant negative interactions with fans and the fact she seems to have made some enemies backstage. Hopefully Banks is able to shake the reputation she currently has among some coworkers.
6 Sweethearts: Marissa Mazzola and Shane McMahon
Shane-O-Mac is one of the most beloved WWE "Superstars" of all time. While he's never really been a full-time wrestler, he's been part of some of the most epic moments in WWE history. Shane has jumped off the Hell in The Cell, been thrown through glass, dove off a titantron, and done so much more. I think it's safe to say that Shane-O-Mac has a few screws loose in his head.
It's true that Shane is crazy when it comes to performing wild stunts, but his personal life is surprisingly grounded. Shane McMahon has been married to Marissa Mazzola since 1996. The couple met back in high-school, and they have been inseparable ever since. Marissa is also a talented woman as she owns a production company called Kamala Films.
5 Jerks: Mickie James and Magnus
Mickie James is a former WWE Women's Champion. She has been with the company on and off since 2003. James recently made her WWE return and she even performed in the first Women's Royal Rumble in January. While she is undoubtedly one of the most talented female Superstars in the WWE today, she has been involved in quite a bit of drama over the years.
Mickie James has dated several WWE Superstars including John Cena, CM Punk, and Jeff Hardy. But, these days, James has settled down. She's been married to TNA Superstar Nicholas Aldis (Magnus) since 2015. While Mickie's days of sleeping around the locker room are behind her, let's just hope that she's done creating drama with the rest of the WWE's women today.
4 Sweethearts: Brie Bella and Daniel Bryan
Brie Bella and Daniel Bryan are the most adorable WWE couple in recent memory. Back in 2014, Bryan was the hottest athlete in the company. The WWE fans forced Vince McMahon to book Daniel Bryan into the main event of WrestleMania XXX. Sadly, Bryan is no longer an active competitor due to a career ending neck injury. With that being said, at least we get to see him every week on SmackDown as the General Manager.
Daniel Bryan's absence from the WWE ring hasn't stopped Brie from stepping into the squared circle. While she is no longer a full-time competitor, her presence was definitely felt at the 2018 Royal Rumble.
Brie and Daniel are happy go lucky couple who care about the environment and spreading joy around the world. They both have loving souls. Who could forget the connection that Daniel Bryan shared with Connor "the Crusher?" That was truly the most touching thing that I have ever seen in the WWE.
Bryan and Bell recently welcomed their daughter Birdie Joe Danielson to the world on May 19, 2017. If there ever was a love story to be told, it would be the relationship between Brie Bella and Daniel Bryan.
3 Jerks: Brock Lesnar and Sable
Brock Lesnar and Sable have been married for more than a decade and I think that they'll be together for years to come. With that said, Brock Lesnar is known for being one of the baddest dudes on the planet. His wife Sable also happens to be one of the hottest WWE Divas of all time.
It's easy to see why Brock Lesnar and Sable have been so successful. They have all the attributes required to make it in the wrestling business. However, they didn't make it to the top without rustling some feathers. Both Brock and Sable have had their fair share of heat with other WWE Superstars.
Lesnar himself has admitted he's a recluse and doesn't like people and is openly selfish by nature. Sable meanwhile, was known as having an out of control ego for most of her career. It's easy to see why they get along so well.
2 Sweethearts: Triple H and Stephanie McMahon
Triple H and Stephanie McMahon have been married since 2003, and they have three beautiful children. Both Hunter and Stephanie have an absolute love for the business. Together, they have taken the WWE to new heights. NXT in particular has become a show of great importance, and it's been spearheaded by Triple H for several years now.
Aside from being extremely successful and driven, both Triple H and Stephanie McMahon have a soft side. In 2015, a young WWE fan took a storyline involving John Cena and Triple H very seriously. In fact, the little boy started crying when Triple H threatened Cena. Hunter noticed that the kid was crying, and he actually broke Kayfabe to console him. It's clear by Triple H's actions that he has a very good heart. I think the WWE will be in good hands when Vince McMahon eventually steps down as the CEO. Hunter and Stephanie have a passion for the business that cannot be matched.
1 Jerks: Rusev and Lana
Rusev and Lana are pretty popular with the WWE fans. Unfortunately, neither one of them have made it big in the company. Rusev was pretty hot for a while, but it seems that his push has slowed down considerably. Of course, Lana is still extremely hot in a physical sense, but she's not really a talented worker.
At one point in time, Rusev and Lana had the potential to become a power couple and a force to be reckoned with. Now, it seems that the buzz around these two WWE Superstars is beginning to fade. Bad times have hit Lana and Rusev as of late in both their professional and personal lives. It's not uncommon for the Bulgarian Brute and his wife to be arguing. At least, that's what can be seen on Total Divas more often than not. Hopefully they can work things out and stay together.
