Here are five women WWE Superstar Dolph Ziggler has reportedly dated in real-life.
#5. Dolph Ziggler dated WWE Hall of Famer Nikki Bella
During his early days in WWE, Dolph Ziggler dated Nikki Bella. The couple kicked off their relationship around 2008 after reportedly meeting at WWE's former developmental brand FCW.
Nikki opened up about her relationship with a fellow wrestler she referred to as "Brad" in The Bella Twins' book Incomparable. However, many believe she was talking about Ziggler.
"Our relationship was casual, and I certainly had no claims on him, but it drove me crazy anyway. It was the first time that I had been with a guy who wasn’t clamoring to lock me down. It drove me batshit crazy. It made me obsessed with him. The problem with that sort of imbalance is that it never really gives you a chance to assess the relationship, or your compatibility, on stable ground. You spend so much energy trying to get something that you think you want, that is just a little out of reach, that you don’t have a chance to actually judge whether you want the thing in the first place," she wrote.
According to Nikki, she ended her relationship with "Brad" a few years later because he cheated on her with another WWE Superstar. Despite their breakup, the former Divas Champion stated that they are still friends.
During an episode of Total Divas, Ziggler told Nikki that he still had feelings for her despite her being in a relationship with John Cena at the time. He also asked the WWE Hall of Famer to return to him. He offered to marry her and give her kids, the things Cena was reluctant to do. The Showoff then tried to kiss Nikki, but she recoiled.
#4. Dolph Ziggler dated WWE Hall of Famer Sunny
During one of these interviews, Sunny disclosed how she and Dolph Ziggler got together.
"I was in Fort Lauderdale doing a pay-per-view party at a sports bar and he was doing the pay-per-view in Miami. He had the match against Loki. See, Nick (Ziggler) and I were talking for about four months. First it was on Facebook then we started texting and then we started talking and then it was about two weeks before that show and I realized whoa I'm gonna be an hour away from him in Florida. I'm doing the pay-per-view party, he's gonna be in Miami. So, I told him I'm just gonna be an hour away from you. He goes: I'm so there after the show," she said.
The WWE Hall of Famer revealed that Dolph Ziggler got kicked in the head that night during his match and suffered a concussion. Nonetheless, he went to see her against doctors' orders.
"So he gets in the car after the pay-per-view, drives an hour up to my hotel. He got there around 12:30 I guess," she added.
The couple spent a few hours together before Sunny left for the airport in the morning. Their relationship, nonetheless, did not go any further.
#3. WWE Superstar Dolph Ziggler dated actress Amy Schumer
In 2012, WWE Superstar Dolph Ziggler got into a relationship with Amy Schumer. The 40-year-old is an actress, writer, and producer. She has won several awards, including a Primetime Emmy, and was nominated for a Grammy and a Golden Globe.
The couple's relationship lasted only a few months. In an interview with Howard Stern, Schumer disclosed that she broke up with Ziggler because their intimate relationship was "too athletic."
In an interview with Sam Roberts’ Wrestling Podcast a few years ago, the WWE Superstar revealed that he and his ex-girlfriend are still friends. He also stated that dating Schumer was challenging for him.
"It’s really challenging. It was so great. Like, usually, I’m the killer funny one and I’m like, 'ah, she’s funnier than me? This is? Oh yeah? Alright. Lets see.' It makes me think and it challenges me. I love it. It was so fun. I held my own, by the way. And constantly, she’d be like, 'you know you’re not funnier than me?' 'We’ll see. We’ll see,'" he said.
A few years after breaking up with Dolph Ziggler, Schumer tied the knot with chef Chris Fischer. They now have a boy.
#2. Dolph Ziggler dated WWE 24/7 Champion Dana Brooke
Dana Brooke is the third WWE Superstar on this list of women Dolph Ziggler has dated and the only one who is still an active competitor. The couple first met while Brooke was still in NXT. They spent nearly two years together between 2015 and 2017.
Despite never talking about their relationship in public, the two wrestlers shared several personal photos together on social media. Last year, Ziggler was involved in a romantic storyline with Mandy Rose when Brooke warned God's Greatest Creation about her ex-boyfriend, referring to him as "trash."
Since their breakup, Brooke has had a few romantic relationships. In December 2019, she started dating Mixed Martial Artist Ulysses Diaz. The couple announced their engagement last July.
Brooke's in-ring career recently took a positive turn too. The 33-year-old recently captured her first-ever title in WWE after pinning Cedric Alexander on Monday Night RAW to win the 24/7 Championship.
Ziggler is also currently on the RAW roster. The Showoff is part of a tag team with Robert Roode. They recently lost a RAW Tag Team Titles match against RK-Bro on the November 29 episode.
#1. WWE Superstar Dolph Ziggler reportedly dated internet personality Trisha Paytas
Dolph Ziggler reportedly dated American internet star and actress Trisha Paytas a few years ago.
Four years ago, Paytas disclosed in a YouTube video that she had a fling with Ziggler around 2016. The 33-year-old then talked trash about the former Intercontinental Champion and claimed he stood her up on a date. She also took shots at pro wrestling:
"These people are so ******* cocky. I dated a wrestler before this guy too, I used to **** around with a wrestler before him and he was the exact same way. I don’t know what it is about wrestlers. They have these big ******* heads because all their little fans, wrestling’s *******, but all these fans of this wrestling fake ******** think it’s real and think he’s a god and then he starts thinking this **** too," she said.
Paytas stated that Dolph Ziggler, who was then 37 years old, would be leaving wrestling soon. Nonetheless, the former WWE World Heavyweight Champion is still going strong at 41. Meanwhile, the internet personality is currently engaged to Israeli artist Moses Hacmon.
