Several real-life couples have already entered the WWE Hall of Fame in the past few years.

There are currently several real-life couples in Vince McMahon's company. A few of them are future WWE Hall of Famers, like Seth Rollins and Becky Lynch. The Visionary and Big Time Becks will probably enter the prestigious club one day due to their accomplishments inside the squared circle.

Meanwhile, other WWE duos, who have contributed a lot to Vince McMahon's company, have already entered the Hall of Fame in the past few years. While most of these couples have split, only one is still together.

Here are five WWE couples who are already in the Hall of Fame.

#5. WWE Hall of Famers Shawn Michaels and Sunny

Over the past three decades, Sunny has dated a few WWE Superstars. One of these wrestlers was Shawn Michaels.

The Heartbreak Kid kicked off his career in WWE in the late 1980s, nearly seven years before Sunny joined the company. In her autobiography, A Star Shattered: The Rise & Fall & Rise of Wrestling Diva Tammy "Sunny" Sytch, the 49-year-old revealed how she admired Michaels.

"I couldn’t help but admire him, up close and personal. He was always very nice to me, much different from how he treated the boys with the exception being the guys in 'The Clique.' He was extremely charming..." she wrote.

Sunny started dating Michaels in late 1996 while she was on a break from her relationship with her high school sweetheart Chris Candido. However, the couple's romance ended when Sunny refused to move in with Mr. WrestleMania.

Speaking on the Something to Wrestle podcast, the Hall of Famer touched on the trepidation she felt regarding her relationship with Michaels getting more serious. She was also open about her fear of completely ending things with Chris Candido.

"Shawn asked me to move in with him. And I was like, 'whoa, okay, this is where it’s going to get serious now.' So it came down to me thinking, 'okay, I can move to Texas with Shawn and either a) have a great life or have that end really badly. And b), on the other hand, if I do move to Texas with Shawn, and end it for good with Chris (...) I mean, Chris worshipped the ground I walked on. Like, I was everything to him, so my subconscious, I couldn’t just say to Chris, 'okay, we’re totally ended, we’re done forever now. I’m moving in with Shawn.'" (H/T Wrestling Inc)

After breaking up with Michaels, the two-time Slammy Award winner continued dating Candido for several more years. Meanwhile, The Heartbreak Kid married former Nitro Girl Rebecca Curci in 1999.

Michaels and Sunny are both now WWE Hall of Famers. They both joined the prestigious club in 2011. Eight years later, The Heartbreak Kid got inducted again into the Hall of Fame as part of D-Generation X.

#4. WWE Hall of Famers Edge and Lita

Edge x Lita was relationship goals back in the day ❤

Edge and Lita shared the ring many times in WWE. They also had a real-life romance.

The Rated R Superstar was married to Lisa Ortiz in 2005 when he started a secret affair with Lita, who was then Matt Hardy's girlfriend. When their relationship later became public, Edge and his wife split. Hardy and Lita also broke up.

In April 2005, WWE fired Hardy for his "unprofessional conduct" after learning about his girlfriend's affair with his best friend. Nevertheless, the company later re-hired the future ECW Champion and turned the real-life issues between him, Edge, and Lita into an on-screen storyline.

Despite this, Edge and Lita's relationship lasted only for a few months. The couple broke up sometime in 2006. Later that same year, the former Women's Champion left Vince McMahon's company.

Like Shawn Michaels and Sunny, both Edge and Lita are currently in the Hall of Fame. The Rated R Superstar became a Hall of Famer in 2012, a year after he initially retired due to injury. Two years later, his ex-girlfriend joined him in the prestigious club.

no wwe couple is ever gonna top the impact that edge and lita had

Edge returned to in-ring competition in 2020 after nine years of retirement. He is currently active on Monday Night RAW. Meanwhile, Lita also recently returned to Vince McMahon's company and will participate in the 2022 Women's Royal Rumble match.

#3. WWE Hall of Famers Triple H and Chyna

Regardless of how things ended up Chyna and Triple H made an incredible team!What were your fav memories? #TeamChyna #LetChynaIn #ChynaHOF #WWE @WWE @TripleH

Triple H and Chyna are two immensely accomplished superstars in WWE history. The Cerebral Assassin joined the company in 1995 after a short stint in WCW. Two years later, The Ninth Wonder of the World also signed with WWE.

According to Hall of Famer Jim Ross, Triple H was the one who convinced The Chairman to hire Chyna, who he was dating at the time.

"She was socially involved with Triple H. She was trying to get in the wrestling business, very unique look, and I think Triple H gave Vince the idea to use her, and of course Vince, being a smart booker, was trying to acquiesce those top talents. Hunter was not yet a quote-unquote top guy but he was heading that way. It was inevitable," he said on his Grilling JR podcast.

The couple worked together on-screen for a few years as part of D-Generation X. Meanwhile, they continued dating before breaking up in 2000. That same year, The King of Kings kicked off his relationship with Stephanie McMahon.

I’ve said it before, but just look at how great Triple H & Chyna looked together..

In 2016, The Ninth Wonder of the World tragically passed away. Three years later, Chyna and Triple H entered the Hall of Fame together as part of D-Generation X. In an interview with CBS Sports, The King of Kings disclosed that he was thrilled to see his ex-girlfriend receive the company's highest honor.

#2. WWE Hall of Famers Edge and Beth Phoenix

After breaking up with Lita, Edge started dating WWE Superstar Beth Phoenix. Although they both worked in Vince McMahon's company, they did not know each other until they met during the day of Edge Appreciation Night in 2011.

In his WWE 24 documentary, the former King of the Ring disclosed the details of their first encounter.

"So, Beth and I started dating after we connected here [Scotiabank Arena in Toronto] on the day of Edge Appreciation. 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,'" he said.

The Rated R Superstar and The Glamazon tied the knot in 2016 after dating for nearly five years. They now have two children.

Edge and Phoenix are the only current couple in the Hall of Fame. The former World Heavyweight Champion joined the prestigious club in 2012. His wife then followed in his footsteps five years later.

The two Hall of Famers are now working together on-screen for the first time. Edge and Phoenix are currently feuding with The Miz and Maryse. The two couples will square off against each other at the Royal Rumble.

#1. WWE Hall of Famers X-Pac and Chyna

Three years after breaking up with Triple H, Chyna started a romantic relationship with another WWE Superstar, X-Pac.

In an interview with Stone Cold Steve Austin, the former European Champion disclosed how he and The Ninth Wonder of the World got together.

"I had a breakup right before I saw her. So I was kind of down. And she was there, scooped me up and things just happened, man," he said.

After dating for a few months, Chyna and X-Pac announced their engagement. Nevertheless, their romance reportedly ended in 2005.

During the former Women's Champion's memorial in 2016, her ex-fiancé revealed in his speech that he loved her until the day she passed away. He also promised to do everything in his power to get her into the Hall of Fame.

"Joanie and I had a really rocky relationship (...) Until the day she died, I loved her very much, I really did (...) I hope you forgive me for not taking better care of you (...) and I'll do everything in my power to make sure you end up in the WWE Hall of Fame where you belong," he said.

Three years later, both Chyna and X-Pac entered the Hall of Fame as part of D-Generation X.

In an interview with TMZ Sports, the former Cruiserweight Champion expressed his happiness to see his ex-fiancée get the recognition she deserves. He also disclosed that he believes Chyna also deserves a solo induction.

X-Pac honours Chyna at her memorial and says he will do everything in his power to get her in to the hall of fame.

In 2020, X-Pac got inducted into the Hall of Fame for the second time as part of the New World Order (NWO). He is now a two-time Hall of Famer.
