Real life romance in pro wrestling is a juicy aspect of the business that the fan base enjoys reading about. The “dirt sheets” and websites that report news in wrestling have more stories than any other sport. That’s due to the fascinating things that take place in wrestling culture as opposed to the NBA, MLB or NFL. The world of wrestlers dating each other features bitter breakups, speculation of new love interests and dramatic love triangles. Because of our thirst for these stories and due to how many of the stories unfold, it forces the promotion to make it an on-screen storyline.
The story of Matt Hardy, Edge and Lita basically summarizes how big a story can get and how ugly things can become. Lita cheated on Matt Hardy with Edge and created one of the more fascinating stories in WWE history. The company fired Hardy for threatening Edge, fans chanted for Hardy during any segments involving Edge or Lita and the WWE was forced to bring back Hardy to face Edge on television in the most awkward match of all time. This is the perfect example as to why many believe wrestlers should not date within the business. Jim Ross has made it known that his top advice for young wrestlers entering the business is to avoid relationships in the workplace.
Not all relationships are doomed and many work out for the better. Triple H and Stephanie McMahon currently run WWE together. CM Punk and AJ Lee are happily married rebels that left WWE to spend their life together. The statistics aren’t great but that’s the same with dating in general and the search for love is worth it. Well, it’s not worth it for all female wrestlers when it comes to the potential of dating wrestlers as a very select few have made sure to avoid it. These are the top twelve WWE divas that refused to date male wrestlers during their wrestling careers.
12 Eva Marie
10 Summer Rae
9 Katie Lea Burchill
8 Gail Kim
7 Eve Torres
5 Candice Michelle
3 Molly Holly
2 Lilian Garcia
1 Trish Stratus
The idea of Trish Stratus being the most popular WWE female performer of all time is debatable, but you can’t argue that she’s the biggest name to never date a wrestler. Trish was involved in multiple on-screen relationships for the television product but only dated one man throughout her entire WWE tenure and it wasn’t even a wrestler. Stratus dated her high school sweetheart for all those years and eventually married him. She likely had to turn down a large percentage of the roster and all of the temptation of the wrestling business. It all worked out, as Trish has become one of the better stories of someone having a happy and healthy life after exiting the pro wrestling world.
