In the past years, WWE has shed light on the personal lives of some couples on its hit reality show Total Divas. It gave fans a chance to watch the ups and downs in the lives of couples like Daniel Bryan & Brie Bella, Natalya & TJ Wilson, and John Cena & Nikki Bella.

Although some of the couples featured on Total Divas are no longer with WWE, the company still has many others under its roof. We have seen them team up in mixed-tag matches and even compete against each other.

The latest couple to reunite under the WWE flag is Franky Monet and John Morrison. They now join a long list of couples that have wrestled under the WWE banner in the past few years.

Here are ten real-life couples who are currently in WWE.


#10. WWE Superstars The Miz and Maryse

The Miz and Maryse are one of the most entertaining couples in WWE. They already have their reality show, Miz & Mrs. The two superstars met 15 years ago when The Miz hosted the WWE Diva Search where Maryse was a contestant.

According to Maryse, The Miz was "mean" to her at first because she did not speak English.

The Miz, however, revealed his side of the story in an interview with Cosmopolitan.

"Maryse and I met in 2006 when I was hosting a WWE Diva search and she was a contestant. She was picked, but we didn't start dating then. About a year later we started talking after one of the Raw events. I was like, 'Man if only I could get a girl like this. One of these days I will get a girl like this and I will be so happy.' And I did!"

Eventually, both of them started dating and got married in 2014. The Miz and Maryse now have two children.

WWE Superstars Seth Rollins and Becky Lynch kept their relationship a secret until Rollins announced it on Instagram in May 2019. The couple announced their engagement in August of the same year.

In May 2020, Lynch relinquished her RAW Women's Championship due to her pregnancy. The two superstars welcomed their first child, Roux, last December.

Rollins and Becky teamed up three times in mixed-tag team matches against Maria & Mike Kanellis, Andrade & Zelina Vega, and Baron Corbin & Lacey Evans. They won all their matches and remain undefeated in WWE.

Rollins is currently active on SmackDown, while Lynch has not yet returned from her maternity leave.

Former WWE Intercontinental Champion John Morrison and current NXT Superstar Franky Monet started dating in 2016 and tied the knot three years later.

Morrison and Monet first met while working in AAA. Monet played Morrison's valet as part of a storyline, but the latter fell in love with her for real. The current NXT Superstar revealed in an interview with Chris Van Villet that Morrison started following her around the AAA locker room before asking her out.

"We went and did press in New York, and he took me to Hamilton. He took me to Hamilton, and then we just kind of started dating. Then he came to visit me in Mexico and I came to LA to visit him. We were filming and doing stuff, and the rest is history."

Monet recently joined NXT, two years following her husband's return to WWE. She made her debut nearly two weeks ago when she interrupted a segment featuring Dakota Kai and the NXT Women’s Champion, Raquel Gonzalez.

NXT Superstars Roderick Strong and Marina Shafir started dating long before they joined WWE. Shafir and Strong announced their engagement in late 2015 and welcomed their first child nearly two years later. They eventually entered wedlock in November 2018.

Strong is a former North American Champion and a former two-time NXT Tag Team Champion. However, his wife is still aspiring to win her first championship in WWE.

The couple competed as a tag team twice on NXT in 2019. They teamed up with Kyle O'Reilly to take on Matt Riddle, Mia Yim, and Damian Priest in a six-person tag before facing Riddle and Rhea Ripley in another tag match. Strong and Shafir, unfortunately, lost both matches.

Former WWE SmackDown Women's Champion Carmella started dating commentator Corey Graves in early 2019. A few fans on social media accused Carmella of being a homewrecker because Graves was still going through his divorce proceedings when they started dating.

The former SmackDown Women's Champion addressed these accusations while speaking to Sonya Deville on Total Divas.

"It’s like the hardest thing I’ve ever had to deal with I don’t even know how to deal with it because I’ve never been through anything like this. All I know is like I love him and like he loves me and we’re happy. I didn’t do anything wrong. I know in my heart I didn’t break up a family. I would never do something like that. I just don’t like that now the entire world thinks I did this horrible thing."

Carmella and Graves were recently separated in WWE when the latter left SmackDown to join the Monday Night RAW commentary team. His girlfriend remains on the Blue brand trying to find her way back to the top.

#4. WWE Superstars Montez Ford and Bianca Belair

Montez Ford and Bianca Belair first met at the WWE Performance Center. Belair told Lilian Garcia on Chasing Glory that she instantly had a crush on Ford. They started dating in 2015 and tied the knot three years later.

"If it hadn’t of been for WWE, and coming into wrestling, I found my husband through wrestling, and wrestling has brought me so much joy and my husband and its brought me this career that I can’t imagine myself doing anything else. Man, I’m just blessed," Belair said on Chasing Glory.

Belair has been on a roll in 2021, after winning the Women's Royal Rumble and main-eventing night one of WWE WrestleMania. She captured the WWE SmackDown Women's Championship at The Show of Shows after defeating Sasha Banks.

Meanwhile, Montez Ford, alongside his Street Profits partner Angelo Dawkins, lost an opportunity to recapture the WWE SmackDown Tag Team Championships when they lost to Dolph Ziggler and Robert Roode two weeks ago.


#3. WWE NXT Superstars Johnny Gargano and Candice LeRae

Johnny Gargano and Candice LeRae announced their engagement in early 2016 and married later in the same year. The couple competed as a tag team on NXT several times. They were undefeated until last January when they lost to Kushida and Shotzi Blackheart at New Year's Evil.

Gargano joined WWE in 2015, nearly two years before his wife. In an interview with WWE.com, LeRae spoke about the benefits of working with her husband.

"A massive positive is that we can travel together! There were times before I got here where I would be wrestling in Japan or the United Kingdom for weeks at a time. Trying to talk to each other when I was basically a day into the future was challenging. I half joke with him that my biggest challenge is trying to keep up with him. He's just so talented. It puts this added pressure on me because I don't want to be an embarrassment to Johnny. Plus, my husband worked so hard for his name, and I absolutely refuse to ride his coattails."

Gargano is one of the biggest names on the Black and Gold brand and the first-ever NXT Triple Crown Champion, but his wife LeRae is yet to taste championship glory in WWE.

#2. WWE Hall of Famers Edge and Beth Phoenix

WWE Hall of Famers Edge and Beth Phoenix started dating ten years ago. The couple welcomed their first child in December 2013 and the second in May 2016 before taking their vows later in the same year.

Edge revealed in his WWE 24 documentary how he and his wife met for the first time.

"So, Beth and I started dating after we connected here [Scotiabank Arena in Toronto] on the day of Edge Appreciation,” Edge recalled. “It was so crazy. We were cordial to each other, but we didn’t know each other. That day, we started talking. ‘I had no idea that you trained at the same gym as me by the same people. And, that you wrestled at the same dive bars just seven years after me.’"
"So, the woman I’m married to and have two little gorgeous girls with, our entire relationship starts here. So, this building is pretty huge for me. It’s kind of overwhelming."

Edge returned to in-ring competition in WWE last year after nearly nine years of retirement. He went on to win the 2021 Royal Rumble but lost a triple threat match for the Universal Championship at WrestleMania 37.

Meanwhile, Edge's wife, Beth Phoenix, returned to WWE in 2017 after nearly five years of absence and is currently a full-time commentator on NXT.

Triple H and Stephanie McMahon are the most powerful couple in the company. Their relationship started nearly two decades ago when they worked together on a storyline. Triple H fell in love with the chairman's daughter, and the two eventually started dating.

Stephanie spoke on an old episode of Howard Stern about how her father, Vince McMahon, reacted towards her relationship with The Game.

"Well, he could see what’s going on. He gave us the okay and then he took it away. Because it was like if we really were gonna be together, it would have to be a big deal. It would have to be the right thing to do. And so he let us come together and then he made us be apart. And we came back together again. And if it was meant to be, you know, it was meant to be."

Triple H and Stephanie McMahon tied the knot in 2003 and now have three daughters.

The couple have shared the ring numerous times throughout their in-ring careers. Their last match as a team came three years ago at WrestleMania 34 when they lost to Kurt Angle and Ronda Rousey.
