The love lives of wrestlers in WWE can be rather confusing. Most veterans advise wrestlers to refrain from entering romantic relationships within the industry, but it seems that more wrestlers are dating fellow talents. The relationships to go public or get outed typically feature two WWE employees dating due to social media making it impossible to hide. Any time two wrestlers go out together in public, there is a good chance someone will be there to take a picture and reveal it to the world. Wrestlers with significant others from other worlds also see their relationships become public knowledge.
We'll take a look at some wrestlers that have been able to relatively keep their love lives private. These wrestlers don’t have the same high profile in terms of putting their relationships out on social media or having their secrets come out due to luck. Some of these wrestlers are dating fellow WWE stars and others are dating people that you likely don’t know. All of these romances will be examined along with any information we know about how they got together. These are fifteen WWE stars you likely didn’t know were currently in a relationship and off the market.
15 Baron Corbin
“The Lone Wolf” Baron Corbin isn’t alone when it comes to his every day life. Corbin is one of the rare wrestlers on the main roster that goes out of his way to keep his private life quiet. The gimmick of Corbin on the SmackDown brand sees him playing a loner character that often gets by with arrogance as a heel.
Corbin also plays this character on social media and never shows insight into his personal life. However, the WWE Hall of Fame Red Carpet event showed Corbin walking around with his wife Rochelle Roman. Corbin and Rochelle reportedly got married earlier in 2017 after a few years of dating. Despite convincing fans that he cares about no one and nothing, Corbin still has a heart after all.
14 Finn Balor
Finn Balor’s love life has been a discussed topic online over the past few months when rumors broke out about him potentially dating Cathy Kelley. A fan spotted them together once and they have posted pictures in the same location to make fans question it. However, there has never been enough proof to realize they were a couple until December.
Balor showed up to a New York Knicks game to promote the upcoming Madison Square Garden live event the night after Christmas. A fan snapped a photo of him sitting in the crowd during the game. Kelley was there next to him as the two showed up together. All of the stories placing them together seemed to be confirmed as they are still going to events together in NYC.
13 Apollo Crews
The career of Apollo Crews has not gone the way he expected since coming up to the main roster. Crews looked great in NXT and had a strong career on the independent circuit. It is obvious that Crews has a great deal of potential that can easily make him a star in the right setting. WWE never booked to his strengths and he is currently on the sideline getting inconsistent television time.
Crews however is still happy living his dream job by traveling all over the world working on live events. The fact that he has a family at home makes the job aspect more important than the creative freedom. Crews is currently in a relationship with a woman named Linda. The happy couple recently welcomed their first child Sade into the world earlier this year.
12 Tyler Breeze
Another wrestler that diehard NXT fans don’t believe has been used right on WWE television is Tyler Breeze. The use of Breeze has seen him change from a successful singles heel with huge potential to a comedic tag team act as one half of Breezango with partner Fandango. Despite the entertainment he provides, Breeze gets frequent comments from fans upset with his role.
Breeze however recently replied saying he is more than happy with what he is doing today. One of the factors in him preferring main roster life over NXT is the money improving. Breeze claimed he owns multiple homes thanks to the money coming in. The real importance of financial success is partly due to being married. Breeze is married to former WWE wrestler and current independent wrestler Audrey Marie.
11 Bo Dallas
The personal life of Bo Dallas has created a lot of questions given the weird stories behind him. A podcast appearance on Talk is Jericho showed Dallas is a massive conspiracy theorist strongly believing in various hoaxes and cover ups by the government. There was the recent story of him missing some time from television due to viral meningitis, which his brother Bray Wyatt and Jojo also had.
However, the most shocking story may be the fact that Bo is already married. Dallas got married in 2014 at the age of 24 to fellow wrestler Sarah Backman. She worked in the WWE developmental system with Bo after coming over from Sweden. Backman’s prior athletic career saw her thrive in arm wrestling. Her new career is in real estate while Dallas continues to work for WWE.
10 Luke Harper
Luke Harper is finally back on television as one half of the Bludgeon Brothers with Erick Rowan. The talent of Harper has always made him stand out as someone worth paying attention to despite WWE never going through with a strong push. Harper’s look and character makes him come as one of the most terrifying wrestlers today.
However, Harper has a very normal life outside of the ring as he is married with two kids. We got to see a glimpse into Harper as a real person on the UpUpDownDown video game channel. Harper proved to be a soft spoken and articulate guy outside of his character. The similarities are there to Mick Foley in the 90s regarding the character and real-life personas. Harper likely is a great husband and father given the way he carries himself.
9 Becky Lynch
The talented and stunning Becky Lynch worked very hard to get to the WWE stage. Lynch helped usher in the Women’s Revolution with her tremendous NXT matches. Becky has been a fixture on the main roster for over two years and is now starring in her first WWE film. The training of Lynch came at the teaching of Finn Balor many years ago and there has been speculation regarding them dating at the time.
Lynch’s only confirmed romance is with her current boyfriend. UFC fighter Luke Sanders is the boyfriend of Becky. Both parties have posted pictures on their social media. Despite being public, this relationship doesn’t seem to get as much attention as one would assume. Sanders being an MMA fighter means there’s always the chance he transitions to WWE at some point with the connection when his fighting days are over.
8 Adam Cole
NXT is seeing Adam Cole become one of the top stars. Triple H trusted Cole enough to get the pin in the first WWE War Games match and later become one half of the main event of NXT’s first prime time show on USA Network. The fact that all of this happened a few months into his short WWE career proves he is going to be a major player for NXT.
Cole seems to be having the best year of his life. It started with him making history as the first three-time ROH Champion, leaving the independent circuit in a productive way and signing with WWE. The most important to him is however likely starting a relationship with fellow wrestler Britt Baker. Both wrestlers teamed together during his final few months before joining NXT. Baker is a top prospect and could very well join him in WWE soon.
7 Aiden English
"Loves" (After Stephen Dunn) by Matt Rehwoldt I love the morning dew and how the wetness on my shoe Reminds me that it is far too early to be there I love the sound that a tea kettle makes Alerting everyone of the sweet, warm delight. And I also love the morning news Informing the world of what is happening Within its own boundaries I even love the ridiculous infomercials That tell us that we cannot live another day Without a new roto-tiller or automatic pancake flipper And I love the feeling of completeness inside That comes after the fear of a new endeavor has drained And you know you’ve done what you set out to do I love the preparation for another large scale formal event And the slipping on of that same black suit, The one I got two years ago for a funeral And I love the way I felt as I slipped out into that night seemingly more charming and attractive, Despite the insecurity that ran rampant through my body And I love the way she held my hand that evening, Softly and gently, Just hard enough that I knew she was there To stay, if only for a while I love the way she danced and I love the way she sang Even when music wasn’t playing I love the way her dress felt against my younger, nervous hand When I held her close during the slowest songs That seemed even slower on that night I love the way we live together, and I even love the foolish ways we fight, That dance we danced together, That song they played and played The way she loved me then And the way it's always stayed.
SmackDown talent Aiden English is currently in a tag team with Rusev as both men try to get consistent television time and storylines. English struggled immensely in his prior tag team known as The Vaudevillains with Simon Gotch. Backstage heat on Gotch and Vince McMahon hating the gimmick led to it ending after months of failing.
English is in a better spot now and has the talent to become a fixture on the show going forward. One lesser known fact about Aiden is that he is currently married to the daughter of a legend. The late Eddie Guerrero’s daughter Shaul is the wife of English. Shaul wrestled in WWE developmental as Raquel Diaz where she met English. The two fell in love and recently got married after years of being together.
6 Peyton Royce
NXT standout Peyton Royce is becoming one of the top women in the promotion. Royce received the loudest ovation at NXT TakeOver: War Games in a Fatal Four match for the vacant NXT Women’s Championship. Ember Moon scored the win, but Royce was established as a star in the division going forward. It is only a matter of time before she and her Iconic partner Billie Kay bring their act to television.
Royce would likely prefer to be on SmackDown given the strong rumors about her relationship. Tye Dillinger and Royce have reportedly been together for a few years. Both worked together for quite some time in the Performance Center until Dillinger was called up earlier this year. Given the lack of television time for Dillinger, the potential of working together with his girlfriend would be a dream in every sense.
5 Xavier Woods
Xavier Woods is known for his endearing antics as the most vocal member of the New Day and for his YouTube channel UpUpDownDown. The fun demeanor and interests of Woods can make it hard for fans to realize that he is starting a family. Woods reportedly married his longtime girlfriend recently and she is pregnant with the couple’s first child.
The success of Woods has done a good job to set up a great life for his wife and child. However, he worked on his off days in WWE to get a PhD to have a backup plan. The family life of Woods is clearly important as he wanted to be able to have success no matter what happens with wrestling. Woods’ wife is unknown, but she is likely proud of his career.
4 Jason Jordan
Jason Jordan is currently involved in a storyline with Kurt Angle that has fans hating him more and more each week. WWE seemed to pivot from trying to push him as the babyface son of Angle to a whiny brat trying to abuse Kurt’s power. The biggest takeaway from this either way is that WWE clearly believes in him becoming a top star in the future to get such a big push at a young age.
Jordan is bound to have a strong career if WWE doesn’t give up on him. This is great news as he already has started the next chapter of his life. Jordan is one of the younger wrestlers on the main roster getting a big push, but he is already married. April Elizabeth is the wife of Jordan as the two got married earlier in 2017 after being together for a few years.
3 Mandy Rose
The recent call-up of Mandy Rose from NXT shows just how much faith WWE has in her. Rose was intentionally kept off NXT because WWE wanted to wait for the right time to bring her up to the main roster. She mostly worked live events for NXT to gain the experience needed. Rose now works with Paige and Sonya Deville as Absolution.
The prior life of Rose saw her get her start in fitness competitions. She met her love interest Michael Lubic along the way and the two have been dating for a few years. The happy couple got engaged back in 2016 and have yet to tie the knot. If Mandy gets her spot back on Total Divas now that she is on the main roster, don’t be surprised to see a lot more of Michael.
2 Liv Morgan
Liv Morgan getting the call up from NXT to WWE sees her become one of the youngest members of the main roster at 23 years old. The prior relationship saw her dating the significantly older Enzo Amore. That relationship ended with Morgan implying she was being cheated on by the controversial wrestler. She already seemed happier with Enzo no longer in her life.
Shortly after that ended, Liv and NXT/WWE UK star Tyler Bate started flirting on Twitter for the world to see. Both exchanged compliments and just seemed like a better fit given their similar age range. Morgan and Bate recently were spotted together spending personal time as an item. The belief is that they're officially in a relationship as the latest WWE couple.
1 Sami Zayn
Sami Zayn went most of his career without being involved in any romantic stories. However, it appears he has been married for quite some time with it all going down without any public knowledge. Fans recently discovered Zayn is married to a woman named Deeja. WWE even started referencing Zayn having a family at home when Daniel Bryan discussed saving the careers of Sami and Kevin Owens.
There’s no word if Sami has any kids yet but it seems to be confirmed he is married. A live event show in Montreal earlier this year showed him and Owens having a great match to main event the show. Zayn greeted a group that appeared to be his family in joy at the end of the show. His promo stated that night was “his WrestleMania” and that is likely due to his wife being there to see it.
