The profession of wrestlers is tiresome and monotonous since they travel for long hours on the road which serves as their home for almost 300 days a year. Furthermore, non-wrestlers would find it challenging to understand their lifestyle as a professional wrestler. Listed below are few of the well-known wrestlers who were fortunate to share their struggles and battles with their fellow from a similar line of work — their other half.
- Triple H and Stephanie McMahon
The onscreen romance of the power couple HHH and Stephanie started during the Attitude Era. The latter was set to marry to wrestler Test (Andrew Martin) on a kayfabe (staged performance in professional wrestling) engagement. However, Triple H drugged Stephanie on her bridal shower and married her in Las Vegas. The McMahon clan, especially Vince McMahon, father of Stephanie, was furious about the revelation, so he asked them to divorce. In the end, HHH and Stephanie revealed that they planned all the events to get back with Vince. In 2002, they divorced in RAW, but their off-screen relationship bloomed, and they got married in 2003. They currently have three daughters and an addition to their family — a puppy.
- Daniel Bryan and Brie Bella
Daniel Bryan and the other half of The Bella Twins, Brie Bella, hit it off after a WWE storyline. The story revolved around the twin sisters who were both battling for the affection of Bryan. Daniel and Brie started seeing each other even before their onscreen affair ended. They got married in 2014 and had their first child in 2017. Daniel Bryan suffered from various injuries such as seizures and brain lesions in 2016. His doctors from Arizona cleared him since he passed the medical tests, but the medical personnel from WWE declined his plea. In 2016, the couple decided to retire from professional wrestling to focus on their family. This 2018, WWE announced the recovery and comeback of Bryan after his two-year hiatus.
- Dean Ambrose and Renee Young
Intercontinental Champion Dean Ambrose and WWE broadcaster Renee Young are one of the few couples who kept their relationship private until their marriage in 2017. Young was famous among several WWE superstars when she started as a commentator in WWE. Meanwhile, while everyone was showing interest to her, Ambrose played it cool for Renee to notice him. Renee Young was oblivious that Dean Ambrose does not talk to anyone, so she had no idea that she was exceptional. Young added that Ambrose got her attention because he constantly called her over the phone.
- The Miz and Maryse
These two met in a WWE Diva Search in 2006 where Miz was the host and Maryse was a participant. The Canadian MaryseOuellet focused on her modeling career and beauty pageants before WWE hired her as a professional wrestler in August 2006. Although she was from Canada, her spoken-language is French which gave her a difficult time communicating during her time in the sports entertainment. On the other hand, Michael Gregory Mizanin or The Miz taunted Maryse for not learning the universal language. They made a connection a year after the competition and got married in 2014 after their longtime relationship.
