Romance in the wrestling business is always a dangerous proposition. Jim Ross used to work as the head of talent relation and has publicly stated many times that his main advice to performers was to never date other wrestlers. Things can get messy and harm the workplace environment. The best case of this would be the legendary tale of Matt Hardy, Lita and Edge. Lita cheated on Hardy with Edge leading to Hardy finding out and revealing it to the internet. WWE turned into a volatile high school drama and showed the perfect example of how terrible wrestling relationships can end.
The best case of a wrestling relationship working out would be Triple H and Stephanie McMahon. Everyone was convinced it was a horrible idea that would end terribly considering Triple H was a main event act and Stephanie held one of the most powerful positions in the WWE. The two have lasted and currently run the WWE along with Vince McMahon. Both have become more influential in the business and still are very much in love, proving it can work out if the bond is worth the risk. The positive stories of couples lasting are much rarer than the ones that end poorly.
Pro wrestling becoming more heavily discussed on the internet and news breaking quite easily has led to relationships being hard to hide. Most romances are made public via backstage sources or just word of mouth on social media. The couples have to elaborately plan just about every detail of their life if they want to actively prevent their relationship from making headlines on various wrestling forums. Wrestling is just generally gossip by nature but there have been a few relationships that have gone under the radar and avoided the public eye... for the most part. We’ll look at those rare cases and break down the top fifteen wrestling couples you didn’t realize dated.

1 1. Stacy Keibler and David Flair
WCW was a weird time for everyone. The place was a huge mess with wrestlers doing ridiculous things and making bad decisions weekly. The best case of this would be Stacy Keibler choosing to date David Flair. Keibler was a star in the making and one of the most attractive women in the world. David Flair was…. David Flair. The surprising relationship made its way to television for a short storyline until it all unraveled. Keibler would move on to WWE and become a big star while the second generation Flair fell into obscurity. Considering he can say he once dated Stacy Keibler and was a highly paid WCW star, David Flair couldn’t ask for more from the wrestling business.
