10 Real-Life WWE couples who have yet to appear on Total Divas 

So many WWE couples have been overlooked by Total Divas

Total Divas reaches the climax of its ninth season this week and it's been one of the most hard-hitting seasons so far, with former UFC star Ronda Rousey and her husband Travis Browne joining the cast. Carmella and her new boyfriend Corey Graves also joined the show and have been able to give their side of what was a controversial story earlier in the year.

Total Divas started back in 2013 and has included a number of interesting pairings like: Brie Bella and Daniel Bryan, Nikki Bella and John Cena, Natalya and Tyson Kidd, Carmella and Big Cass, Alexa Bliss and Buddy Murphy, Naomi and Jimmy Uso, The Miz and Maryse, Lana and Rusev, Mandy Rose and her fiance at the time, as well as Eva Marie and her husband/manager Jonathan.

It's been a long six years and nine seasons, but while many couples have already been cast, there are a number who have been overlooked, but could be good selections for Season 10.


#10. Nikki Cross and Killian Dain

Killian Dain and Nikki Cross married earlier this year, but were split across the main roster and NXT brands last month as part of the WWE Draft. Dain was originally promoted to the main roster as part of Sanity a few years ago and Cross then followed earlier this year.

Nikki Cross was drafted to SmackDown as part of the recent WWE Draft while Dain remained on NXT, where he has been part of a hard-hitting feud with Dominik Dijakovic and Pete Dunne. Cross and Dain haven't even had their relationship mentioned on WWE TV yet, so chances aren't high that WWE will include them in Season 10 of Total Divas.

#9. Candice LeRae and Johnny Gargano

Johnny Gargano has been the heart and soul of NXT for a number of years and as part of his feud with Tommaso Ciampa last year, the WWE Universe saw the debut of his wife Candice LeRae. LeRae became an integral part of their feud and is still referred to as 'Mrs. Wrestling,' since her husband is affectionately referred to as 'Johnny Wrestling.'

The storyline with Tommaso Ciampa was one that broke down doors for NXT and made Gargano and LeRae one of the best-known couples in the company, but WWE has since worked hard to push Candice LeRae into her own feuds and allow Gargano to then head back off into the title picture.

It's likely that Johnny Gargano will be one of the big names heading to the main roster next year after his feud with Finn Balor comes to an end. This means that it's unlikely that Gargano and LeRae will be added to Total Divas any time in the coming year. With that stated, stranger things have happened in the past with WWE.

#8. Mia Yim and Keith Lee

Mia Yim was one of the stand out stars of Survivor Series weekend, despite not being part of any of the matches, since she was taken out backstage ahead of the Women's War Games match and was then replaced by Dakota Kai. This set into motion one of the greatest female heel turns in recent history when Kai turned on Tegan Nox and almost cost her team the win inside the structure.

Yim had been pushed off a ladder a few weeks before on NXT and looked worse for wear when the developmental brand invaded SmackDown on Friday night, so it made sense that she was taken out. After NXT went off the air that night, Yim's real-life boyfriend Keith Lee made his way out to the top of the ramp to help her to the back and give her the hug that everyone in the arena felt she deserved.

Yim and Lee have been together since their time on the Indies and have the potential to be WWE's next big power couple, so it's unlikely that WWE would waste them on Total Divas.

#7. Montez Ford and Bianca Belair

Another WWE power couple who are split across two brands is Montez Ford and Bianca Belair. The duo was once together in NXT when The Street Profits were performing as part of the Black and Gold brand, but Angelo Dawkins and Ford were officially promoted to the RAW brand as part of the recent WWE Draft. This left Bianca Belair on her own in NXT.

Belair was recently part of the first-ever Women's War Games match. Even though her team came up short, she is one of the women many believed would dethrone Shayna Baszler before the NXT Women's Champion stepped into a feud with Rhea Ripley. Belair is considered to be one of the women in NXT who has the most potential and when she's finally promoted to the main roster there will likely be a power switch with the women already representing SmackDown and RAW.

Belair and Ford are completely different outside of the ring and Belair is somewhat unrecognizable when she takes off her wrestling gear, so they would be fantastic additions to Total Divas in the future, especially since Montez Ford is so good on the mic.

#6. Sasha Banks and Sarath Ton

One of the old school couples who have been on the main roster for a number of years is former Women's Champion Sasha Banks and her costume designer husband Sarath Ton. This couple has been together for a number of years, and Ton was designing Banks' gear when she was on the Indies.

Banks married Ton back in 2016, but the company forced her to keep it under wraps for a number of months, so Banks wasn't allowed to reveal that her marriage had taken place until the following year.

Despite the fact that the WWE Universe is now fully aware of the relationship between the two stars, this is a duo that is still yet to appear on Total Divas. Banks' friends have been part of the show and it was thought that she would be added too.

Perhaps there's a reason WWE are trying to keep the original NXT Four Horsewomen away from the show, but if it's because they want them to look like legitimate fighters, then why was Ronda Rousey added this year?

#5. Aleister Black and Zelina Vega

Former NXT Champion Aleister Black and his wife Zelina Vega have been so private about their relationship that the WWE Universe was unaware that they were together until their marriage was revealed last year.

Black and Vega currently both ply their trade on the RAW roster, but Vega works as the business partner of Andrade, a man who has crossed paths with her husband a number of times. The couple are still very private about their marriage and given the current situation on RAW, it's easy to see why the company has never mentioned it on WWE TV.

Aleister Black can cut his own promos, but Zelina Vega has been one of the best things to happen to Andrade. He was just a jobber in NXT before she helped him find his feet. It would be hard to imagine the former NXT Champion without Vega by his side on RAW, so it's likely that this couple would never go in the direction of many others and open their doors to the Total Divas cameras anytime in the near future.

#4. Charlotte Flair and Andrade

Charlotte Flair and Andrade are another well-known couple that hasn't been officially recognized by WWE. There were rumors earlier this year that the couple could have become engaged during Charlotte's time off following WrestleMania.

The former Women's Champion has already been married and divorced twice, but many believe that she has found the right one in Andrade. Both stars are fantastic in-ring technicians and come from families who were destined to leave a mark on the business, so it's easy to see why they have found their way to one another.

Much like Zelina Vega, Andrade and his business partner have been seen in a certain way on WWE TV, which means that it's unlikely that it will be revealed that Flair is his girlfriend in the coming months despite being on the same brand. Flair is also one of the most decorated female wrestlers in the history of WWE and is a 10-tine Women's Champion. Unless the company is desperate for ratings when the Season 10 premiere date is set, then Charlotte and Andrade are unlikely to be added to the list.

#3. Sarah Logan and Raymond Rowe

Sarah Logan was made part of the Women's Survivor Series team this past weekend. Despite not being able to pick up the win for her team, this was a huge push in the right direction for the former Riott Squad member, especially since she's the only member of the faction left on WWE TV.

Logan has been hinting that she will be turning into more of a Viking and possibly join her husband Raymond Rowe in The Viking Raiders, so it will be interesting to see if that comes to fruition.

The duo married last year in a traditional Viking wedding and reports suggest that Raymond, who's known as Erik on WWE TV, is actually completely different from his on-screen persona. This couple could be an interesting one to be added to Total Divas. After all, Liv Morgan is already part of the show and Logan is said to be close friends with the former NXT star.

Given their obvious love of all things Vikings, it would definitely be interesting to have Rowe and Logan in Season 10 of Total Divas.

#2. Maria and Mike Kanellis

Given her recent pregnancy and the fact that she already has a daughter, Maria Kanellis would be seen as a perfect candidate for Total Divas, especially since she's one of the women who were part of WWE when Divas ran the division.

Sadly, Maria hasn't been given a lot of TV time since her return back in 2017 and it's meant that she has struggled to find her feet. The former 24/7 Champion is currently pregnant with her second daughter, which means that she will be on maternity leave pending her due date.

Her husband Mike Kanellis recently publicly requested his WWE release, but it is yet to be granted by the company, so it's assumed that they have decided against allowing The Kannellis' to leave, especially after the two stars only recently signed five-year deals.

Given the recent controversy surrounding this couple, it's not likely that the company would want to showcase them further on Total Divas next year, but stranger things have happened and since Maria could have some interesting points to add to the show, she would be a good shout for Season 10.

#1. Becky Lynch and Seth Rollins

WWE's most well-known power couple have been left off Total Divas, mostly because they only got together last year and announced their engagement just a few months ago.

Becky Lynch and Seth Rollins are two Superstars at the very top of the company and WWE has already used their relationship as part of a storyline, so there's no reason why they can't be added to the show at this point.

Lynch's feud with Rousey could even become part of the show heading into next year's WrestleMania and given the fact that Seth Rollins was once one of the company's most popular stars, it would be interesting to see if the viewers tuned in to find out more about his personal life outside of the ring.

If WWE decides to shake up their Total Divas cast for Season 10 in 2020 then Becky Lynch and Seth Rollins have to be the best option since they are recognizable with a huge fan following. This could be huge for the show's ratings, if they were ever to take a nose-dive once again.
