For pro-wrestlers, time on the road takes a toll and they look towards those they love to find some comfort. This has led to many AEW stars popping the question to their partners and getting engaged.
Late last year, Penelope Ford and Kip Sabian married in one of the bigger segments in AEW history. The two also tied the knot in real life. Meanwhile, AEW commentator Excalibur also recently married, according to Jim Ross.
Similarly, many AEW wrestlers have taken the next step in their relationship and gotten engaged to their partners. These stars are looking to find the balance between work and family life before getting married.
In this article, take a look at the five AEW stars who recently got engaged.
#5. Sammy Guevara proposed to his girlfriend inside the AEW ring
Sammy Guevara is arguably one of the most popular stars in AEW. He’s been a pillar of The Inner Circle and has had some good matches and rivalries over the past three years.
Earlier this year, Sammy decided to propose to his longtime girlfriend in the middle of the AEW ring. During an episode of AEW Dynamite in Houston, The Spanish God came out before his match against Shawn Spears.
He addressed his hometown crowd and revealed that he had a big announcement to make. He paid tribute to his girlfriend of eight years before proposing to her.
“Houston, just so you understand, she’s been with me when I had no car, worked at Taco Bell, when I was wrestling in front of seven people. She’s been with me through the bad time and the good times – you’ve been there the entire time and so for that, I want to say thank you Pam.”
He got down on one knee while Tony Schiavone held the mic and let him pop the question to Pam. The AEW star’s girlfriend said yes before the two hugged as the crowd went wild.
Sammy has a long way to go in AEW, and Pam will likely stay by his side to watch him reach new heights.
#4. AEW star Griff Garrison got engaged earlier this year
Griff Garrison and Brian Pillman Jr. perform as Varsity Blonds on AEW. The two men work great together and could end up becoming the AEW World Tag Team Champions in the months to come.
Earlier this year, Garrison took to social media to announce the engagement to his girlfriend, Frannie Jones. While not much is known about Jones, it looks like she's known Garrison for a long time.
Garrison expressed his excitement at the prospect of spending his entire life with someone he loves dearly.
Garrison is one of the fastest-rising talents in AEW. Even though he didn't have much experience before he joined the company. It’s only a matter of time before he is allowed to go on a solo run and aim for one of the bigger titles in AEW.
#3. AEW star Red Velvet is engaged to Wes Brisco
At the AEW Dynamite: The Crossroads, Red Velvet teamed up with Cody Rhodes to take on Jade Cargill and Shaquille O’Neal in a mixed tag team match. Cargill pinned Velvet to pick up the win for her team.
Velvet later signed a full-time contract with AEW. She recently challenged Britt Baker for the AEW Women’s Championship, but failed to win the title.
Late last year, Red Velvet took to social media to announce that she’s engaged to her best friend Wes Brisco.
“After some private family time to cherish the moment, I’m happy to announce that I’m engaged to my best friend , soulmate, and now tag partner for life @Wesbrisco.”
Wes Brisco is a pro-wrestler famous for his work with Total Nonstop Action Wrestling (TNA). He also sent out an Instagram post regarding their engagement.
“We wanted some private time to enjoy the moment with our families. From our very first date, I knew I wanted to spend the rest of my life with you. You are my sunshine when it’s raining, my perfect wave, my best friend, my soulmate, my dream tag team partner, and now my fiancé. I couldn’t have asked for a better woman to build my family with and call my wife. I love you Lovebug or should I say Future Mrs. Brisco”
Brisco hasn’t taken to the wrestling ring for some time now. However, he could follow in Red Velvet’s footsteps and join AEW down the road.
#2. AEW star Andrade El Idolo is engaged to Charlotte Flair
AEW star Andrade El Idolo kicked off 2020 in style when he proposed to WWE Superstar Charlotte Flair on new year’s eve. Andrade and Charlotte were competing for the same company when the former United States Champion popped the question to The Queen on WWE.
Charlotte joked about how the two had to use Google Translate to communicate. However, the language barrier didn't stop the two wrestlers from taking their relationship to the next level.
The AEW star posted a lengthy tribute to Charlotte on his Instagram along with a few photos. Check out the caption below roughly translated from Spanish.
“It all started being friends until I started falling in love day after day with you, on trips, in meetings, at dinners, in hotels, events, talks, gym … I love you and in my personal life it is the best thing that happened to me. Meeting that night with Charlotte with the little English that I knew didn’t matter to you and you tried hard as I did.”
It’s great to see the two wrestlers doing well together behind the scenes in spite the language barrier. They currently compete on rival promotions, but that will not stop them from keeping their relationship public.
#1. AEW star Nick Comoroto recently proposed to his girlfriend
Nick Comoroto joined WWE in 2019. He was released by the company in 2020, following which AEW signed the 30-year-old wrestler.
Comoroto formed an alliance with Dustin Rhodes and QT Marshall before becoming part of The Factory. In 2021, Nick Comoroto popped the question to his girlfriend at an independent wrestling show.
At an MCW Pro Wrestling event, Comoroto got down on one knee to propose to his girlfriend Becky, also known as Ref Becky. The AEW star’s girlfriend said yes, and the two embraced to give the fans a big feel-good moment.
A video of the proposal shows Comototo talking about how Becky has been by his side through thick and thin. He labeled her the most caring person before popping the question.
"She’s been with me through everything. When I was poor, she was there. When I had money, she was there. When COVID hit and I lost my job, she was there to pick up the pieces and bring me back here."
"Becky is the sweetest, most caring person you will ever meet in your life.”
Comoroto has a long way to go in AEW. With Becky by his side, he could go on to achieve big things. Will AEW sign Ref Becky too in the months to come? Only time will tell.
