#3. Former WWE Superstar John Morrison - Mike Knox


Former WWE Superstars John Morrison and Melina were among the most famous WWE couples a few years ago. The two wrestlers started dating in the early 2000s and stayed together for nearly 11 years before splitting in 2015.

Before Melina and Morrison got together, the former Women's Champion dated another wrestler, Mike Knox. During her appearance on the Ross Report with Jim Ross in 2015, 42-year-old Melina disclosed that Knox was her second-ever boyfriend. The two former WWE Superstars dated before Melina got into the wrestling business.

While Morrison and Melina were still dating, the former Intercontinental Champion had to share the ring with his girlfriend's ex-boyfriend a few times. Knox and Morrison first teamed up together as part of Team Rated-RKO against Team DX in the 5-on-5 Survivor Series elimination match in 2006. They were also on the same team in two other bouts in 2008.

In 2009, Knox and Morrison faced each other in two singles matches, in which the latter won. Knox was also on the losing side when he teamed up with Dolph Ziggler to face Morrison and Finlay that same year on SmackDown.


Melina, Morrison, and Knox are all now out of WWE. The company released Knox from his contract in April 2010. A year later, both Morrison and Melina left WWE, too. Nonetheless, the former Intercontinental Champion returned to Vince McMahon's company in 2019. However, WWE recently released him due to budget cuts.
