The private lives of WWE’s top stars are often thrust into the spotlight during their time in the ring. Sometimes storylines will borrow from real-life events and relationships, while on other occasions the fans’ investment in a star goes beyond their in-ring activities.
Over the years, many of WWE’s top female stars have been featured in high-profile storylines and relationships with their male counterparts; Stacy Keibler was linked to Vince McMahon, Trish Stratus appeared in storylines with both Mr. McMahon and Christian, while Lita’s off-air relationship with Edge made for brilliant on-screen storylines. But once they step away from the spotlight that focus is relaxed. Here, we have tracked down 10 of WWE’s top former female stars to find out who they are spending time with in real life today.
10 Beth Phoenix is married to Edge
During her run in WWE in the early 2000s, Beth Phoenix was married to fellow wrestler Joey Knight, but the couple divorced in 2010.
Since stepping away from the ring, Phoenix has begun a relationship with Adam Copeland, better known to WWE fans as Edge. The pair have two daughters, Lyric Rose Copeland, born in 2013, and Ruby Ever Copeland, born in 2016. Phoenix and Copeland were married in October 2016.
9 Gail Kim is married to Robert Irvine
Gail Kim’s most high-profile run in wrestling was during her tenure with Impact Wrestling, where she spearheaded their women’s division and was – quite rightly – put into the Hall of Fame. During her second run with WWE she was relegated from the title picture and spent much of her time in an on-screen relationship with Daniel Bryan and a feud with the Bella Twins.
Kim met celebrity chef Robert Irvine on his Dinner: Impossible TV show when he came to serve VIPs dinner at WWE’s Summerslam. The couple were married in May 2012.
8 Molly Holly Is Married To Geno Benshoof
Since stepping away from the ring, former Women’s Champion Molly Holly has invested in real estate and done large amounts of charity work. She works with a Minnesota drug rehabilitation program for teenagers, where she ministers women taking part.
In 2010, Holly announced her engagement to Geno Benshoof, who she met while working as a teen counselor. The couple was married later that year in Minnesota.
7 Michelle McCool is married to The Undertaker
Former Women’s and Divas Champion Michelle McCool has spoken out in the past about how she felt her relationship with The Undertaker affected the way she was treated by colleagues within the WWE during her final run with the company.
McCool was married to high school sweetheart Jeremy Alexander until 2006. She married The Undertaker in 2010 and their first child was born in 2012. The couple has appeared on WWE TV, most notably following Undertaker’s Wrestlemania defeat to Roman Reigns.
6 Stacy Keibler is married to Jared Pobre
During her time with WWE, Keibler was linked with a series on on-screen romances. After debuting from WCW as The Duchess of Dudleyville, she was linked with Vince McMahon, while working as his personal assistant, and then as a manager and on-screen girlfriend for both Test and Scott Steiner.
There was some crossover with real life here as Keilber was dating Test during their early run. Since leaving WWE, Keibler has married Jared Pobre, CEO of online advertising company Future Ads. The couple was wed in 2014.
5 AJ Lee is married to CM Punk
AJ Lee is, in many ways, the wrestler who sparked the current revolution in women’s wrestling. But she was still part of WWE in the days when on-screen relationships made up a large part of female characters’ air time. While with WWE, Lee was linked on-screen with Dolph Ziggler, Daniel Bryan and John Cena.
But it was a different former WWE Champion who caught her eye off-screen. Lee married Phil Brooks, better known as CM Punk, in 2014.
4 Alundra Blayze is married to Alan Jonason
The artist formerly known as Madusa was a huge star in the then-WWF in the 1990s before getting herself blacklisted by the company for turning up on WCW’s Monday Night Nitro and throwing the WWF Women’s Championship in the trash. In 2015 she returned to the company to be inducted into the Hall of Fame.
Blayze was formerly married to NFL player Ken Blackman and they owned a custom motorcycle shop together. In 2011, she married United States Army Sergeant Major Alan Jonason at Graceland in a ceremony which was broadcast online.
3 Torrie Wilson is dating Justin Tupper
Another star whose time in WWE was often tied up in on-screen relationships, Wilson and fellow Diva Candice Michelle were known as Vince’s Devils in 2005-2006 and she appeared alongside Carlito between 2006 and 2007.
Wilson was married to fellow wrestler Billy Kidman in 2003, but they divorced five years later. She dated New York Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez between 2011 and 2015 and is currently in a relationship with Revolution Golf senior vice president Justin Tupper.
2 Lita is single
Amy Dumas’ on and off-screen love life were heavily featured on WWE programming for a stretch in the early 2000s. She began dating Matt Hardy in 1999 but in 2005 it was revealed she was in a relationship with Edge, who she had reportedly begun seeing while still with Hardy. This transitioned into an on-air storyline involving a feud between Edge and Hardy and then Edge and Lita appearing as an on-screen couple.
Since leaving the WWE in 2006, Lita has indulged her long-time passion for music. She dated fellow band member Shane Morton between 2006 and 2008 and was in a relationship with CM Punk from 2009 to 2010 and 2012 to 2013. She is currently believed to be single.
1 Trish Stratus is married to Ron Fisico
Trish Status first brought Stratusfaction to the WWE with the tag team of Test and Albert in 2000, but went on to become the biggest female wrestling star of the era and one of the all-time greats. During her tenure with WWE she was involved in storylines with Vince McMahon, Chris Jericho and Christian.
Away from the ring, however, Stratus is married to bodybuilder Ron Fisico. The couple, who were high school sweethearts, have two children, a son born in 2013 and a daughter born in 2017.
