In the world of professional wrestling, travelling and showcasing your craft to millions is an obvious part-and-parcel for every single WWE superstar.
The talented performers travelling the world intending to expand WWE's reach on different platforms get the opportunity to hit the road with their fellow peers.
Many WWE Superstars who we see engage in entertaining barnburners between the ropes are actually very good pals behind-the-scenes.
Previously, the concept of presenting two different characters as a heel/face was taken too seriously by the fans. An era devoid of social media bolstered the character's on-screen credibility, leaving us with no information on his off-screen life and relationships.
However, in today's day and age, it has all changed. The fans keep tabs on every superstar's personal journey and can get a closer look at their day-to-day lives.
Even though WWE does Network Specials to keep the audiences invested in their favorite male or female superstars, there are many real-life friendships the company never acknowledges on live television.
Here are the 5 real-life friendships WWE never acknowledges on television.
#1. Daniel Bryan and Shinsuke Nakamura
Two of the most proficient competitors inside the squared circle of WWE, Daniel Bryan and Shinsuke Nakamura share an incredible friendship behind-the-scenes.
In the early 2000s, the two insanely talented performers lived together in Santa Monica, California. Bryan's affiliation with New Japan Pro Wrestling brought him close to The King Strong Style, with the two grapplers training together to elevate their already established credentials.
Whilst the two lived as roommates for a brief amount of time, it's a travesty that we haven't seen the two feud or collide inside a 20 x 20 WWE ring.
Moreover, both the performers have openly stated their desire to clash against each other, someday. Since WWE has never given us a legitimate program between the two despite them working under the blue brand, the company seriously acknowledging their real-life bond may very well be an 'out of the bloom' moment.
