WWE, and professional wrestling in general, has its fair share of couples with considerable age gaps. After all, we have all heard the famous saying, "Age is just a number," and the statement certainly holds when it comes to love.

In this article, we talk about couples from the world of wrestling who have the biggest age differences:


#10 Sasha Banks and Sarath Ton - 8 years

Congratulations to WWE Women's Champion "The Boss" Sasha Banks who quietly married WWE costume designer Sarath Ton … https://t.co/WWXzFqKBvs

While Sasha Banks is a household name amongst the WWE Universe, fans aren't all that familiar with her better half. If you are a keen follower of Xavier Woods' UpUpDownDown YouTube channel, then you'd probably know about Sarath Ton, AKA Mikaze.

Banks is 30 years old and has already cemented her position as one of the greatest women's superstars in WWE history. Ton is 39 years old, and WWE currently employs him as a consumer designer.

Ton began his career as a wrestler and worked under the Kid Mikaze moniker until he retired from in-ring competition. The off-shoot costume design in pro wrestling has worked out well for Miakze as he is a popular figure backstage in the company. The couple tied the knot in August 2016, and they have voluntarily shied away from the public spotlight in WWE.


#9 CM Punk and AJ Lee - 8 Years

CM Punk and AJ Lee don't need any introductions. The couple is amongst the most popular performers of the past decade, and they began dating while working together in WWE. They married on June 13th, 2014, which is reportedly also the day that WWE released CM Punk.

The AEW World Champion worked for various independent promotions before being picked up by WWE in 2005. AJ Lee hadn't even begun wrestling at that time as the 35-year-old kicked off her career in 2007 before signing up with WWE in 2009.


#8 Paige and Ronnie Radke - 9 years

Paige has been involved in a few heavily-publicized relationships in the past, and she has been subjected to intense media scrutiny due to the uneasy nature of her love life. However, things are steady now for the retired superstar.

Paige is currently dating musician Ronnie Radke, and they have been seeing each other since 2018. Radke has been a very supportive partner as he was quick to call out Triple H after The Game made a controversial comment about the former Divas Champion during an interview with Sportskeeda's Gary Cassidy.

Radke, who is 38 years old, has also had to battle a few problematic legal issues in the past, and he has found some stability with the 29-year-old Paige.


#7 Brock Lesnar and Sable - 10 years

Here's a wrestling couple that probably everyone knows about. Sable was a popular personality of the Attitude Era, and she had her fair share of relationships before being wooed by Brock Lesnar. Sable's first husband died in a drunk driving accident in 1991 and she went on to marry Marc Mero in 1994.

Sable broke into WWE in 1996 and was booked in an angle with Mero, who had also signed up with the company around that time. The couple divorced in 2004, and before their split, Sable had already started dating a young WWE rookie in Brock Lesnar.

Lesnar and Sable would get hitched in May 2006, and since then, their relationship has survived the test of time. In addition to having two children with Sable, Lesnar became the father of twins with former fiance Nicole McClain in 2002.

The Beast Incarnate is also the stepfather of Sable's first child - a daughter from her first marriage. His stepdaughter also has a child, making Brock Lesnar a grandfather in his 40s. Grandpa Brock is still the most intimidating man in WWE.


#6 Matt and Reby Hardy - 12 years

When it comes to his dating history, Matt Hardy is remembered for his infamous six-year relationship with Lita. Hardy also reportedly dated Ashley Massaro before he met Reby Sky. The former WWE Tag Team Champion married Sky in 2013 and the couple have three children together.

Reby Sky is one of the most vocal WAGs on social media as she has a knack of speaking her mind in the most unfiltered way imaginable. Reby has been an active in-ring performer herself since 2010. However, she hasn't wrestled a match since 2016.

She was a model and actor before her pro wrestling career kicked off. She was also an important character in the Broken Universe that Matt Hardy brilliantly created in Impact Wrestling.

Rebecca Hardy is 35 years old, while her legendary husband is aged 47. Hardy is looking to complete the final chapter of his career in All Elite Wrestling. While much didn't happen in WWE, we may see the entire Broken family on AEW Dynamite and that will be WONDERFUL.


#5 The Rock and Lauren Hashian - 13 years

The Rock is one of the most popular personalities in the world and even if he tries, he might never be able to keep a low profile when it comes to his personal life. Dwayne Johnson married Danny Garcia for the first time in 1997, and they have a daughter together, Simone Johnson - who signed a contract with WWE in 2020.

The Rock and Garcia enjoyed a ten-year marriage until their amicable split in 2007. The Great One was introduced to Lauren Hashian while shooting for the movie 'The Game Plan' in 2006. Johnson and Hashian dated each other for nearly 14 years before they got married in August 2019 in Hawaii. They have two children together.

Lauren Hashian is the daughter of drummer Sib Hashian and she followed in her father's footsteps to become a singer, songwriter and music producer. The 38-year-old Hashian has been a constant figure in The Rock's life during a time when the 50-year-old Superstar has risen to become one of the highest-paid actors in Hollywood and we think Lady Luck has worked its magic here.


#4 WWE Hall of Famer The Undertaker and Michelle McCool - 15 years

The Undertaker's personal life was in the spotlight in 2020 as AJ Styles has attempted to expose 'The Real Undertaker' en route to their WrestleMania 36 match. Michelle McCool's name was mentioned a few times, but she wasn't physically involved in the rivalry.

The Phenom and Michelle McCool have been married since 2010 and have a child together. McCool was 30 while The Undertaker was 45 when they decided to marry. McCool left WWE in 2011 and has sporadically appeared for the company since 2018.


#3 Giovanna Yannotti and Kurt Angle - 18 years

The 53-year-old WWE Hall of Famer is enjoying life as a retired man and he has a beautiful family to look after, and at the center of it all is his wife Giovanna Yannotti, a gorgeous actress who is 18 years younger than him.

The man who won an Olympic gold medal with a broken freaking neck first married Karen Smedley in 1998. After his first marriage ended in a divorce, Angle began dating Giovana Yannotti, whom he met during the filming of the movie End Game in 2009. They reportedly got engaged in 2006 and confirmed their marriage vows in July 2012.

Kurt Angle and Yannotti have four children together and revealed in 2019 that they were adopting a son from Bulgaria. Yannotti began her career as a model before becoming an actor. She was the stand-in for Rosario Dawson in Unstoppable and also had a role in the 2012 film Death from Above'.


#2 Stephanie Washington and Bret Hart - 26 years

Stephanie Washington wasn't even born when Bret Hart began wrestling in the late 70s. She wasn't even a teenager when he won his first Intercontinental Championship in the WWE. This should give you a clear picture of this couple's age difference.

Hart's first marriage to Julie Smadu lasted 16 years until their separation in 1998 and they had four children. Hart also had a brief relationship with Cinzia Rota that ended in 2007. The WWE Hall of Famer married Stephanie Washington in 2010 and will celebrate their 12th anniversary in July this year.


#1 Jerry Lawler and Lauryn McBride - 39 years

Jerry 'The King' Lawler has been married thrice, with his final marriage ending in 2003. The legendary wrestler has not been married ever since his last divorce. However, he has been in a steady long-term relationship with Lauryn McBride since 2011. McBride is astonishingly just 33 years old, while Lawler will turn 73 in November later this year.

The King of Memphis hasn't allowed his age to stop him from doing what he loves, as Lawler still hasn't fully retired as an in-ring competitor and often goes back to the indies to wrestle a few matches.
