Do you hear that? It’s the sounds of church bells off in the distance. It’s such a beautiful sound to hear unless you’re Tiger Woods. For one day, in theory, a couple brings all their friends and family together to celebrate their union. Food, music and the drunk uncle make this day a special occasion to billions of people around the world. Maybe if we want world peace, we need more weddings and fewer bombs.
The professional wrestling industry has always used the “family man” in their storylines. Such examples are Ric Flair versus Ricky “The Steamboat” Dragon and Rey Mysterio versus Eddie Guerrero. The storyline would follow the hero as he defends his family's honor against nefarious individual. Most characters in the WWE don’t have a family written into their storylines and it’s easy to think a wrestler isn’t married in real life.
More recently, we’ve seen WWE use marriage as a plotline in the feud of John Cena/Nikki Bella versus The Miz/Maryse at WrestleMania 33. It won’t be the last time that plotline is used, oh it’s true, it’s damn true. This list has WWE Superstars that you might not have thought were married. It may be because of their age, their character’s personalities, or you just don’t know about their private lives. Enjoy.
15 Karl Anderson
Bullet Club fans might be extremely upset that the WWE hasn’t brought the band back together but when they do, and they will, it could either be epic or fall flat. Until then, the WWE Universe is just going to have to deal with Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows doing their own thing while Finn Balor tries to recapture the title he never lost, the Universal Championship.
The King of the Cruiserweight Division just got dethroned by Akira Tozawa and the entire kingdom is in chaos. We don’t know the end game of the Tozawa experiment but the ride has been one of the most interesting things to happen in WWE’s 205 Live Division. Neville would debut in the wrestling business in 2004 but didn’t get a chance to work for the WWE until 2012.
13 Luke Gallows
We couldn’t leave out the other member of the baldies on this list. Second chances can be rare in the wrestling industry but you wouldn’t know that if you followed Gallows’ career. The towering heavyweight signed with the WWE in 2005 and was in their developmental program. He would reach the big leagues as an impostor of Kane in 2006. He would eventually get his own gimmick as Festus and become a member of Straight Edge Society.
Lucha! Lucha! Lucha! Anyone else wondering why the WWE doesn’t put Kalisto in the 205 Live Division? Regardless of where you think Kalisto should be positioned within the company, one thing is for sure, the WWE has expressed interest in making him the next Rey Mysterio. Maybe that’s a good idea but the last time we checked, Mysterio is still active in the wrestling business. Instead of making him the next Mysterio, how about making him the next Kalisto? We don’t want to say WWE is caught in some kind of type casting, but when you put lipstick on a pig, it’s still a pig...
11 Corey Graves
We’re cheating here but Corey Graves was a wrestler and still is heavily involved in the WWE. Not only is he one of the best announcers the company has, but fans would love to see him back in the ring if he decided upon it. After working his way into NXT, Graves would become a Tag Team Champion.
10 Scott Dawson
Has there been any other tag team as unlucky as The Revival when it comes to injuries? Scott Dawson and Dash Wilder were preparing for the biggest match of their lives with the Hardy Boyz at SummerSlam, however, Dawson would sustain a ruptured right distal biceps tendon.
Konnor may look like a terrifying man when he has face paint on and slamming guys into the mat, however, that doesn’t mean he can find a lady to love him. Konnor has been a member of the WWE Universe for a very long time. He would get his first taste with the WWE when he signed a developmental contract in 2005. From 2005-07 and from 2010-14, Konnor would be stuck in the minor leagues.
8 Tommaso Ciampa
This psycho became one of the most hated wrestlers in NXT when he betrayed Johnny Gargano after failing to win the NXT Tag Team Championships at NXT TakeOver: Chicago.
Ciampa would make his professional wrestling debut in 2005 and actually appeared as the lawyer of Muhammad Hassan that year. Appearing as Muhammad Hassan’s lawyer, his first moment in the WWE would be in a skit with The Undertaker.
7 Jey Uso
We all know about the marriage of Jimmy Uso and Naomi due to their time together on WWE’s Total Divas, however, Jey Uso is also married as well. The twin brother of Jimmy doesn’t always get the spotlight and his wife isn’t involved in the WWE. As a member of the legendary Anoa’I family, maybe Jey didn’t want another family member in the wrestling business.
6 Rich Swann
Sometimes dancing is more fun than wrestling, just ask Rich Swann. At just 26 years old, Swann has a bright future ahead of him. He’s already had one reign as the Cruiserweight Champion and fans really enjoy being entertained by the Baltimore native. He would make his wrestling debut in 2008 and would sign a contract with the WWE in 2015. The rapper, Wale, tweeted about Swann’s potential and Mark Henry decided to invite Swann to a tryout.
5 Tyler Breeze
Say what? Is Tyler Breeze married? Sorry ladies and gentlemen, but Breeze is no longer available. Trained by Lance Storm, Breeze has a great combination of skills and looks to be a force in the WWE. He would sign a developmental contract with the WWE in 2010 and it would take him five years to make it to the big show. He never was an NXT Champion but he has been in some high profile matches in the developmental promotion.
4 Ember Moon
Ember Moon looks like the heir to Asuka’s throne and could very well be the next Women’s Champion in NXT by the time you read this. Moon would make her professional wrestling debut in 2007. She would earn her stripes over the years, bouncing around to different promotions that emphasized women’s wrestling.
3 Jason Jordan
Jason Jor….. we mean, Jason Angle, is getting a really big opportunity as the kayfabe son of Raw’s General Manager Kurt Angle. There hasn’t been much news as to why the WWE decided to split up America Alpha but Chad Gable and Jordan can definitely make an impact as solo stars.
2 Shinsuke Nakamura
Start the violinist, please. Shinsuke Nakamura has taken the WWE Universe by storm since he signed with the company in 2016. Before the WWE, Nakamura was the most electrifying man in Japanese wrestling, working for New Japan Pro Wrestling. Haters are going to hate, but if you don’t see the energy coming off Nakamura then you need to fix your Dragon Ball Z scouter because he’s over 9,000.
1 Dean Ambrose
It was the biggest secret everyone knew about. The Dean Ambrose and Renee Young love saga has been documented extensively. A picture of them together here, a quote about them there, and the next thing you know, the two were getting hitched this year. Dean and Renee would pull off an interesting wedding that you usually just see in the movies.
The two would become a family after finding a 24-hour pastor at one o’clock in the morning in Las Vegas, Nevada. Knowing Ambrose, this type of marriage isn’t surprising. We’re pretty sure the two will have a bigger ceremony down the road but until then, we can look forward to the Seth Rollins and Ambrose storyline developing. We’re not jumping the gun, but the WWE hasn’t had a Macho Man and Miss Elizabeth couple in quiet sometime.
