Many WWE Superstars have been married only once. AJ Styles, for example, tied the knot with his high school sweetheart, Wendy Jones, nearly 22 years ago. The couple have been together ever since. They now have four children.

Meanwhile, there are also some former and current WWE Superstars who have been married several times. While some tied the knot twice, others married three times or more. One Hall of Famer has even tied the knot five times over the past five decades.

Here are six WWE Superstars who have been married three times or more.

#6. WWE Hall of Famer Bret Hart

Bret Hart tied the knot with his first wife, Julie Smadu, in 1982, two years before he joined Vince McMahon's company. The couple remained together for two decades, during which they had four children, Jade Michelle, Dallas Jeffery, Alexandra Sabina, and Blade Colton. Nevertheless, Hart and Smadu divorced in 2002.

Two years later, the 64-year-old married Cinzia Rota. However, his second marriage lasted only three years before the couple split in 2007. In 2010, the five-time WWE Champion tied the knot for the third time with Stephanie Washington, who is 26 years his junior. The couple have been together for nearly 12 years now.

The Hall of Famer seems happy in his third marriage. Two years ago, Hart showered his wife with praise on Instagram, celebrating their 10th wedding anniversary.

"I just want to take the time today on my 10th wedding anniversary to say how grateful I am for all the love and support I get everyday from my beautiful wife Steph. Through the thick and the thin, the bright and the dim, she has never wavered and has been at my side like a guardian angel. I don’t know where I’d be without her love, patience, and guidance. Thank you for righting my ship and being my compass. Happy Anniversary baby!" he wrote in a post on his account.

Bret Hart had not competed since September 2011 when he teamed up with John Cena to defeat Alberto Del Rio and Ricardo Rodriguez on Monday Night RAW. The Hitman has since made several sporadic WWE appearances, the last of which came in 2019 at SummerSlam.

#5. WWE legend Batista

Nearly a decade before kicking off his wrestling career, WWE legend Batista married his first wife, Glenda, in 1990. The couple's marriage lasted for eight years, during which they had two daughters, Kelilani and Athena.

In 1998, Batista and Glenda parted ways. Later that same year, The Animal tied the knot for the second time. The 53-year-old and his second wife, Angie, had a son, Oliver, before splitting in 2006.

In a recent interview with Men's Health, The Animal disclosed that his wrestling career ruined his second marriage.

"She wanted a husband who was going to be home, and I was like, 'Make a choice.' And sometimes it’s hard for me to say, but admittedly, I chose my career, because it was the only shot I had," he said.

Nine years after his divorce from Angie, the former World Heavyweight Champion married his third wife, Sarah Jade. Nevertheless, their marriage fell apart four years later. The couple separated in 2019.

In his interview with Men's Health, the WWE legend-turned-Hollywood star revealed that he is currently in a new relationship. Although he refused to name his new girlfriend, Batista disclosed that they met on a film.

#4. WWE Hall of Famer Edge

Like Bret Hart and Batista, WWE Hall of Famer Edge has been married three times. In 2001, The Rated-R Superstar tied the knot with former WWE Superstar Val Venis' sister Alannah Morley. However, their marriage lasted for only three years. In 2004, they got divorced.

Later in 2004, the Hall of Famer married Lisa Ortiz. Nevertheless, their marriage only lasted for about a year. The couple split in 2005 after Edge's affair with Lita became public.

Six years after his second divorce, The Ultimate Opportunist started dating Hall of Famer Beth Phoenix. The couple first met during the day of Edge Appreciation Night in 2011. The 48-year-old recalled their first encounter during his WWE 24 documentary.

"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.

Edge and Phoenix tied the knot in 2016. The couple now have two daughters, Lyric Rose and Ruby Ever.

The Rated-R Superstar and The Glamazon recently teamed up for the first time to face The Miz and Maryse at the Royal Rumble premium live event. The Grit Couple came out victorious.

#3. WWE legend The Undertaker

Nearly a year before joining WWE in 1990, The Undertaker tied the knot for the first time with Jodi Lynn. In 1993, the couple welcomed their first child, Gunner Vincent. Nevertheless, they split in 1999.

A year after his divorce, The Deadman married his second wife, Sara Frank. The couple's marriage lasted for about seven years, during which they had two daughters, Chasey and Gracie. In 2007, The Undertaker and Frank parted ways.

After his second divorce, The Undertaker fell in love with Michelle McCool. During his The Last Ride documentary, The Phenom revealed what attracted him to the former Divas Champion.

“I was attracted to her desire to be better and her work ethic. It was not the blue eyes, blonde hair, kicking body. I never seen a girl throw a football like that," he said.

McCool and The Undertaker tied the knot in 2010 and welcomed their first daughter, Kaia Faith, two years later. Last June, the couple celebrated their 11th wedding anniversary.

The Undertaker and his third wife are both currently retired from in-ring action. However, the former Divas Champion recently returned to the ring to participate in the 2022 Women's Royal Rumble match. She entered the bout at number 10 and lasted for nearly 21 minutes before getting eliminated by Mickie James.

#2. WWE Hall of Famer Stone Cold Steve Austin

WWE Hall of Famer Stone Cold Steve Austin has been married four times. The 57-year-old tied the knot with his high school sweetheart Kathryn Burrhus in 1990. Nevertheless, the couple split in 1992 after Burrhus discovered that the Texas Rattle Snake was having an affair with his valet, Jeanie Adams (AKA Lady Blossom).

Later in 1992, Austin married Adams. The couple had two daughters, Stephanie and Cassidy, before divorcing in 1999. After that, the WWE Hall of Famer started a relationship with former WWE Women's Champion Debra. In his autobiography "The Stone Cold Truth," Austin revealed how the couple began dating.

"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, just like I didn't love Jeannie right away (...) But a mutual attraction formed, and Debra and I eventually turned into a solo item," he wrote.

Debra moved in with Austin in 2000. Later that same year, the couple tied the knot. Their marriage lasted nearly three years before they split in 2003.

After the end of his third marriage, Austin disclosed in his autobiography that he did not see himself getting married again for the next decade. Nonetheless, he married his fourth wife, Kristin Feres, in 2009, six years after the release of his autobiography. The couple have been married for nearly 13 years now.

#1. WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair

WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair has tied the knot five times over the past five decades. He married his first wife, Leslie Goodman, in 1971. The couple spent 12 years together, during which they had two children, Megan and David. However, their marriage ended in 1983.

Later that same year, The Nature Boy tied the knot with Elizabeth Harrell. Flair and Harrell's marriage lasted for 23 years, during which they had two children, Ashley (AKA Charlotte) and Reid. The couple then parted ways in 2006.

A few months after his second divorce, the WWE Hall of Famer married for the third time. Nonetheless, Flair's marriage to his third wife, Tiffany VanDemark, ended after only three years as the couple split in 2009. That same year, the 16-time world champion tied the knot with his fourth wife, Jackie Beems. They spent five years together before going their separate ways in 2014.

Four years later, Flair married for the fifth time. However, the 72-year-old recently announced that he and his fifth wife, Wendy Barlow, had split.

"After taking some time apart, Wendy and I have decided to go our separate ways. Please respect our privacy & our families during this time! I will love & cherish all of our memories together forever, and I will forever be thankful for all she has done to make my life better!" he wrote in a statement he posted on his social media accounts.
