Nothing’s off the table in WWE, no matter how ridiculous it may seem!
Longtime fans have witnessed everything in WWE that they never could have predicted. From frustrating ties to the weirdest performances, some people are more than interested in the women who married these fighters instead of what actually happens in the ring — at least, most of the time. What do WWE wives do? Are they fighters, too, or prefer the pacifist side of life? How did they meet? It’s time we leveled the playing field for these couples! While their husbands are awesome, their wives are successful in their own right.

Stephanie McMahon is a retired pro wrestler in her own right. Not only did she perform for WWE for eight years, but she's currently the chief brand officer (CBO) of WWE and works with Raw, NXT, and SmackDown. She transitioned into business after retiring from professional wrestling, which isn't a surprise given that she hails from the McMahon wrestling family and married a pro wrestler both on-screen and in real life.
Which male WWE star managed to snag Stephanie McMahon as their bride? None other than Paul "Triple H" Levesque, who retired from wrestling in 2022 after working with WWE and associated brands since 1992. The pair met and began dating after AWWE combined their storylines into a scripted romance in 200, later getting engaged on Valentine's Day in 2003 and marrying in October of the same year.

Unfortunately, she accused the brand of sexual harassment and unsafe working conditions in 2004. Aside from wrestling, Sable is also a successful model, appearing on Playboy's cover three times. In fact, her 1999 issue is one of the highest-selling prints in Playboy history, according to Slam! Sports. Plus, she appeared in both TV series and the film Corky Romano.
Sable has entertained a few husbands in her time, including multiple pro wrestlers. Former boxer and pro wrestler Marc Mero was her second husband before divorcing him in 2004. Currently, Sable is married to wrestling legend Brock Lesnar, the only person to hold all heavyweight championship titles in WWE, UFC, NJPW, and the NCAA.

In 2010, Pro Wrestling Illustrated ranked McCool #1 on their Female 50 list, and she later retired that same year.
McCool first married her high-school sweetheart Jeremy Alexander, but they divorced in 2006. Luckily for her, the divorce allowed McCool to marry fellow WWE Champion Mark "The Undertaker" Calaway in 2010. Calaway is considered one of the greatest pro wrestlers in history after being inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2022. They share one child— daughter Kaia — who was born in August 2012.

While his many wives might not have worked out, he managed to have two grandchildren before the age of 40! That's an accomplishment, right?
Linda & Hulk Hogan
Hulk Hogan needs no introduction, but we'll talk about him anyway. Born Terry Eugene Bollea, Hulk Hogan is widely referred to by his ring name Hulk Hogan from his time wrestling worldwide. As the most popular wrestler of the 1980s, he's notorious for holding the longest reign in the WCW World Heavyweight Championship while adopting the "Hollywood" Hulk Hogan persona. During his wrestling career, Hogan dabbled in other entertainment avenues, including mainstream acting. From Rocky III to No Hold's Barred, he's as much a Hollywood icon as anyone else.
This is one of the few instances in which a wrestler's first wife is more famous than their second. Hogan married Linda Claridge in December 1983. They share two children, Brook and Nick. But their celebrity marriage fell apart after the National Enquirer published a story that Hogan had an affair with Christiane Plante in 2007 while he was filming Hogan Knows Best. Linda filed for divorce that same year and publicly announced her decision in 2008. In his biography, Hogan denied the allegations, saying Linda was always suspicious of his female friendships. Hogan married for a second time in 2010 to Jennifer McDaniel, but they also ended up divorced as recently as February 2022.
Lauren Hashian & Dwyane "The Rock" Johnson
Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson is best known for his career as an actor from his debut in The Scorpion King to the lead in Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle. However, he didn't begin his Hollywood career as an actor. In fact, he's regarded as one of the greatest pro wrestlers in history! Before his wrestling career, The Rock played college football and aspired to move on to pro football, but he was destined for wrestling from the start. As a member of the legendary Anoa'i wrestling family, he easily scored a WWE contract in '96. So, who is the woman who managed to woo The Rock for life?
Johnson had one previous marriage with bodybuilder and producer Dany Garcia, sharing one daughter together. However, their divorce was finalized in 2008. Luckily, he found his forever match in Lauren Hashian — daughter of famous drummer Sib Hashian — whom he met on the set of The Game Plan in 2006. They finally married during a Hawaiian ceremony in 2019 after bringing two daughters into the world. They currently live in Los Angeles but also own a farm in Virginia. Johnson's daughter Simone from his first marriage announced in 2020 that she is continuing the wrestling legacy of her family after signing a contract with WWE.
Lauryn Laine McBride & Jerry “The King” Lawler
Jerry "The King" Lawler is a legend in the professional wrestling community despite not performing as a commentator or wrestler since 2020. Before joining WWE, he won multiple championships, including many international heavyweight titles. While he's held more championships than any other wrestler and is featured in the WWE Hall of Fame, he's never won any WWE titles.
Lawler's romantic life is long, messy, and confusing. Before marrying Lauryn Laine McBride, he had marriages with three women: Kay Lawler, Paula Lawler, and Stacy Carter. Lawler began dating his current partner Lauryn in 2011 and caused quite the stir because she's 39 years his junior. They caused an even bigger stir when the couple was arrested for domestic assault against each other, resulting in Lawler's indefinite suspension from WWE.
Wendy Barlow & Ric Flair
Ric Flair is a legend in the pro wrestling world. With a career spanning nearly 40 years and regarded as the greatest wrestler of all time, he's bound to have an interesting love life. Over the course of his 70-year life, Ric Flair has married and divorced five women: Leslie Goodman, Elizabeth, Harrell, Tiffany VanDemark, Jackie Beems, and Wendy Barlow. Summarizing the downfall of every Flair marriage would take hours, so we're merely focusing on his most recent pursuit, Wendy Barlow.
Flair married his fifth wife Wendy in September 2018 in Florida. Barlow was lovingly known as his valet "maid Fifi" in the WCW, which is where the pair met in 1993. On January 31, 2022, Flair announced that he and Barlow have separated with a Twitter post, reading, "After Taking Some Time Apart, Wendy And I Have Decided To Go Our Separate Ways. Please Respect Our Privacy & Our Families During This Time! I Will Love & Cherish All Of Our Memories Together Forever, And I Will Forever Be Thankful For All She Has Done To Make My Life Better!"
Beth Phoenix & Adam "Edge" Copeland
Elizabeth Copeland is professionally known as Beth Phoenix for her work wrestling and commentating in the WWE. As a WWE Divas Champion and three-time Women's Champion, Phoenix has more than enough credibility as a wrestler to separate her from her husband Adam "Edge" Copeland. She shouldn't be overshadowed! But it makes sense why people might think she's a regular old WWE WAG because Edge is such a legendary wrestler himself.
Phoenix married the WWE Hall-of-Famer in 2016, but that's not where their love story began. Previously, the pair were married to other people, with Phoenix in a relationship with Joey Knight and Edge involved with Sean Morley (aka Val Venis), Lisa Ortiz, and — controversially — Amy "Lita" Dumas. Despite Edge's affair with Lita, Phoenix went on to date him in 2011, have two children with him in 2013 and 2016, and officially marry in October 2016.

As for Angle's romantic life, he first married Karen Smedly in 1998 before undergoing a divorce in September 2008 that Karen initiated. They share two children together.

In 2010, rumors spread that he was engaged to model Giovanna Yannotti who's 19 years younger than him. The pair married in 2012 one year after the birth of their first daughter. Currently, they share three biological children and one adopted. Yannotti frequently dotes on her husband via Instagram.
Jessica Lockhart & Chris Jericho
Christopher Irvine — popularly known as Chris Jericho — is considered one of the greatest professional wrestlers in the history of the sport according to journalists and industry specialists. As a six-time world champion within both WWF and WWE, as well as the 2008 Superstar of the Year, it's clear that he deserves the title. After retiring from WWE in 2018, he became an IWGP Intercontinental Champion with the New Japan Pro-Wrestling league, becoming the first wrestler to hold both WWE and IWGP championship titles. But it isn't all about Jericho. Who is his lovely wife?
On July 20, 2000, Jericho married Jessica Lockhart at St. Charles Country Club, which led Jericho to tattoo his ring finger with his wife's name. The pair first met through the WCW wrestler Glenn "Disco" Gilberti at an after-night party. According to Jericho's autobiography A Lion's Tale, he was "enchanted" when he first saw Lockhart.

In September 2013, Brandi married fellow wrestler Cody Rhodes with whom she shares one child. Cody is currently signed with WWE under their Raw brand, but he's also known for his time in AEW where he was TNT Champion three times and served as executive vice president. He is also known for his time in All Elite Wrestling (AEW), where he was the inaugural and record three-time AEW TNT Champion and also served as an executive vice president.

AJ married her wrestling soul mate Phil "CM Punk" Brooks on June 13, 2014. They currently live in Chicago and largely remain silent about their personal lives. However, it can be assumed they met due to WWE. In fact, they were first caught out on the town as a couple in 2013 during a Chicago Cubs game where they were spotted on the jumbotron. The outing was quite scandalous given that many believed CM Punk was dating fellow WWE wrestler Lita.
Beth Britt & Jeff Hardy

As for Rollins's love life, it's been a bit messy. After posting nude photographs of his girlfriend Zahra Schreiber to his social media in 2015, and (allegedly) his then-fiancée posting revenge porn of Rollins to her Twitter, both of his relationships fell apart.

I went from being scared of my husband coming home from work with the Coronavirus to days later him getting fired. One thing I can say, I'm so proud of how he held it together.... Most importantly, my fellow wrestler wives who are going through this as well. It makes it easier to have people who can relate to you on a personal level for a minute during a s---ty time. It feels like we're all in the same boat together, all rooting for one another and it almost feels like therapy talking to each other."
