A few former and current female WWE Superstars have tied the knot more than once in the past few years.

Several WWE women have been married only once. For example, WWE Hall of Famer Trish Stratus tied the knot with her high school sweetheart, Ron Fisico, in 2006. The couple have been together for more than 15 years now.

Nevertheless, other female WWE Superstars have been married more than once. Most of these women have tied the knot twice over the past few decades. Meanwhile, one former Women's Champion is currently married to her third husband.

Here are five WWE women who have been married more than once.

#5. Former WWE Women's Champion Michelle McCool

Michelle McCool has been married twice. Her first husband was her brother's best friend, Jeremy Alexander. Despite knowing each other since they were children, McCool and Alexander did not start dating until she was a high school senior.

In November 2001, McCool and Alexander tied the knot. The couple remained married for nearly five years before getting divorced in 2006. That same year, the former school teacher joined the SmackDown roster.

During WWE's tour of Ireland in 2007, McCool got extremely sick. The Undertaker then took care of her, and the two performers later started a romantic relationship. In an interview with Chasing Glory with Lilian Garcia, the 42-year-old disclosed that she and The Deadman initially tried to keep their relationship hidden.

"So we started dating, and I knew what was gonna come with that. And so it was hard. I hid it for a long time, we hid it for a long time in the work place, for several months,'' McCool said. ''He had a bus at this point, which a lot of the guys do now, I would literally wait until everybody left the building so nobody saw me get on the bus. I would do anything I possibly could to make people still see Michelle for Michelle, not for Undertaker's, at the time, girlfriend. Which I've quickly learned that never goes away because now I'm just Undertaker's wife. So, it is what it is."

The Undertaker and McCool dated for a few years before tying the knot in June 2010. Two years later, they welcomed their first daughter together, Kaia Faith. The couple have been married for nearly 12 years now.

McCool recently participated in the 2022 Women's Royal Rumble match. She entered the bout at number 12 and lasted for about 21 minutes before getting eliminated by Mickie James.

#4. Former WWE Women's Champion Debra

Several years before kicking off her wrestling career in 1995, Debra got into a romantic relationship with former Chicago Bears defensive tackle Steve McMichael. The couple first met when they went out on a blind date set by McMichael's mother. They dated for a while before tying the knot in 1985.

Debra and McMichael remained married for 13 years, during which they both became professional wrestlers. They worked together for nearly two years in WCW before officially splitting in 1998.

In an interview with Wrestling Digest in 2001, the former Women's Champion disclosed why she and her first husband ended their marriage.

"He grew one way and I grew the other. We were married 10 years, but we became different people," she said.

In 1998, Debra joined Vince McMahon's company. She then started dating Stone Cold Steve Austin. In his autobiography, "The Stone Cold Truth," The Texas Rattlesnake disclosed how he and the former Women's Champion kicked off their relationship.

"I had recently gotten divorced and Debra had been divorced for several years already. I enjoyed meeting her and I enjoyed making her laugh. I didn't fall in love with her right away though (...) But a mutual attraction formed, and Debra and I eventually turned into a solo item," he wrote.

After dating for a while, Austin and Debra got married in September 2000. Their marriage lasted for nearly three years before they officially divorced in 2003.

#3. WWE Hall of Famer Beth Phoenix

Beth Phoenix has been married twice. The Glamazon's first husband was independent wrestler Joey Knight. The couple tied the knot in 2001 and remained together for nearly nine years before splitting in 2010.

A year after her divorce, Phoenix started dating Hall of Famer Edge. The couple first met on the day of Edge Appreciation Night in 2011. In his WWE 24 documentary, The Rated-R Superstar 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.

After dating for two years, the couple welcomed their first daughter, Lyric Rose. In May 2016, they had their second, Ruby Ever. Later that same year, Edge and Phoenix tied the knot on The Rated-R Superstar's birthday.

The two WWE Hall of Famers have been married for more than five years now. They recently teamed up to defeat The Miz and Maryse at the Royal Rumble premium live event.

#2. Former WWE Divas Champion Kelly Kelly

Like the three previous entries on this list, Kelly Kelly has also been married twice. The former Women's Champion's first husband was former Canadian professional ice hockey player Sheldon Souray.

The couple met at a Maxim Hot 100 party. In an interview with Florida Times-Union, Souray stated that Kelly immediately took his breath away when he first saw her.

"It was like time slowed down. She immediately took my breath away. I remember thinking to myself this was by far the most amazing woman I had ever seen in my life," he said.

After dating for several years, the former Divas Champion and Souray tied the knot in February 2016. However, they split only a year later.

Three years after her divorce, Kelly announced her engagement to bodybuilder Joe Coba. The couple first met in May 2019 at their local dog park when their dogs started playing together. Although they did not exchange contact information that day, Coba later found Kelly on social media and suggested meeting her again at the dog park.

In an interview with Brides, Kelly stated that she fell in love with Coba at first sight.

"From there, it was love at first sight. We spent three hours at the dog park getting to know each other and capped the evening off with our first dinner date. We have been inseparable ever since," she said.

After dating for nearly two years, the former WWE 24/7 Champion and Coba tied the knot in April 2021.


Kelly Kelly recently returned to WWE to participate in the 2022 Women's Royal Rumble match. She entered the bout at number four and lasted for only a minute and five seconds before Sasha Banks eliminated her.

#1. Former WWE Women's Champion Sable

Sable is the only woman on this list who has been married three times. The former Women's Champion and her first husband, Wayne Richardson, tied the knot in 1987. However, their marriage ended when Richardson tragically passed away four years later.

Three years after the death of her first husband, Sable married former Intercontinental Champion Marc Mero. Nevertheless, they split in 2004 after the former Women's Champion got into a romantic relationship with the WWE Champion Brock Lesnar.

In an interview with the Stone Cold Podcast in 2019, Mero disclosed how he found out about his wife's romance with Lesnar.

"I have to listen to the first one [voice messages] to get to mine and it was another wrestler talking about them two. I remember thinking, 'when I find out who this guy is, I'm going to kick the living tar out of this man! And then I found out it was Brock Lesnar! Steve, this gives forgiveness a whole new meaning! Our marriage was over. We ended up getting divorced, but God bless them! They got married. They have kids," he said.

After dating for a few years, Sable and Lesnar tied the knot in 2006. They have been married for nearly 16 years now and have two sons together, Turk and Duke.

In his autobiography "Death Clutch: My Story of Determination, Domination, and Survival," the WWE Champion stated that he never regretted marrying Sable.

"I don’t think my wife has ever regretted saying yes. I can tell you, I’ve never regretted it for a single moment. We were meant to be together," he wrote.

While The Beast Incarnate is currently active in WWE, his wife left the company in 2004 and has never returned.
