WWE real life couples: From Edge and Beth Pheonix, Brock Lesnar and Sable to Triple H and Stephanie McMahon – The Sun

WWE chief Vince McMahon is no stranger to letting budding romances appear on screen – from daughter Stephanie's relationship with Triple H to even his own kayfabe affairs with Trish Stratus.

But while dramatic breakups and bitter love triangles sometimes make for the best wrestling storylines, the nature of the business means stars inevitably end up together outside the ring as well.

Here SunSport takes you through ten of WWE's real-life powerful couples…

Triple H and Stephanie McMahon

One of the most powerful couples in wrestling history, WWE legend Triple H and Stephanie McMahon, the daughter of CEO and Chairman Vince, have been going strong behind the scenes for more than 15 years.

The two first got together on-screen as part of a storyline involving a fake wedding back in 1999 before legitimately starting dating a year later.

Stephanie then married Triple H, real name Paul Levesque, on October 25, 2003.

The WWE power couple, who are both still active TV characters, have since had three daughters.

Aurora Rose was born in 2006 and Murphy Claire entered the world in 2008, while Stephanie then gave birth to Vaughn Evelyn two years later.

Brock Lesnar and Sable

The notoriously private Beast Incarnate, 42, caused a storm when he tied the knot with former WWE star Sable – who is 10 years his junior – in 2006.

The couple never had a romantic storyline on TV, with American model Sable, 52, proving to be one of the stars of the Attitude Era in the 90s, a decade before Brock became the face of Ruthless Aggression.

Sable – real name Rena Marlette Lesnar – is now retired and living with the ex-UFC heavyweight champion on a farm in Maryfield with their two sons, Turk and Duke.

The Undertaker and Michelle McCool

The Dead Man is one of wrestling’s most-sinister performers and achieved cult status after rarely breaking character throughout his three-decade-long career.

Away from the ring, Taker, real name Mark Calaway, tied the knot for a third time in 2010 after marrying fellow WWE superstar Michelle McCool.

McCool – real name Michelle Leigh Calaway – is a former two-time Divas Champion and has made sporadic wrestling appearances since her 2011 retirement.

She had her first child with WrestleMania legend The Phenom, a daughter called Kaia Faith, a year later.

Daniel Bryan and Brie Bella

Both Bella Twins Nikki and Brie were involved in two of WWE's most-high profile relationships with John Cena and Daniel Bryan respectively.

While her twin sister split from the Leader of the Cenation in 2018, Brie has since cemented one of the company's strongest couples alongside fan-favourite Bryan.

The two's 2014 wedding was screened on Total Divas and they are expecting their second child later this year.

The Miz and Maryse

WWE’s “Most Must-See” superstar The Miz and wife Maryse married in 2014 and currently have their own reality network show together.

The colourful couple welcomed their second child, Madison Jade Mizanin, in September following the birth of daughter Monroe Sky in March 2018.

They also reportedly splashed out a whopping £5.3 million for a luxury new home in California last year to raise their young family.

Seth Rollins and Becky Lynch

The RAW Women's Champion announced her engagement to the Beast Slayer last August after a whirlwind secret romance.

Lynch, real name Rebecca Quin, has been dating Rollins, real name Colby Lopez, since February 2019 but the pair went public with their relationship in May.

WWE soon incorporated their romance into an on-screen storyline which saw them team up for a winner take all mixed tag match at Extreme Rules.

Andrade and Charlotte Flair

Another of WWE's newer power couples – Andrade revealed that he got down on one knee to propose to the 10-time women's champ Charlotte on New Year's Day.

The Mexican sensation revealed his close relationship with soon-to-be father-in-law, the great Ric Flair, when speaking exclusively to SunSport in January.

He said: "In a man-on-man talk we had he said: ‘Please protect my daughter, she’s changed and she's happy.' I said: 'Yes I will protect your daughter, I love her and am so happy too.'"

Edge and Beth Pheonix

The two WWE Hall of Famers got married in 2016 and have two daughters together.

Despite retiring, Beth Phoenix, aka The Glamazon, was instrumental in helping husband Edge – real name Adam Copeland – as he made a dramatic return to the ring earlier this year.

The Rated R-Superstar shocked the world with a comeback at the Royal Rumble almost nine years after he was forced to retire.

After bouncing back from his career-ending neck injury to perform at the over-the-top-rope extravaganza, he is set for a WrestleMania clash with Randy Orton following the Viper's attack on Edge's wife Beth.

Jimmy Uso and Naomi

The two's long-term relationship was a big staple of WWE's spin-off reality series Total Divas up until they finally tied the knot in 2014.

Naomi – real name Trinity Fatu – is also the stepmother of Jimmy's (Jonathan) two children, Jayla and Jaidan.

The 32-year-old is a former SmackDown Women's Champion while her husband, son of WWE legend Rikishi, is one-half of six-time tag team holders the Usos with twin-brother Jey.

Aleister Black and Zelina Vega

While working as the manager for Andrade, Vega began secretly dating the Dutch Destroyer while they were both in NXT.

They stunned the wrestling world after announcing they had got hitched in 2018 but have since become much more open about their relationship.

The couple even launched their own YouTube channel, "From A to Z: Aleister to Zelina" to document what they get up to outside the ring.

Big thank you to @discoverycove for accommodating us these last few weeks. At first I was very wary of parks like these but after practically interrogating everyone and everything I got shown all the incredible things that go around here and how much is done for preservation of species, research to help sustain populations and habitats I am more than convinced. A great retreat for relaxation but also highly informative. I implore everyone to create their own opinion and give this place a go.
