Over the past few decades, several WWE Superstars have married their colleagues' sisters.

Many superstars have dated their colleagues as well. While some of these relationships fell apart, others thrived and ended in marriage. Becky Lynch and Seth Rollins are an example. They tied the knot last year after dating for two years.

Meanwhile, a few other WWE Superstars have fallen in love and married their colleagues' sisters. Some of these women were also in-ring performers. However, others were not in the professional wrestling business. Although several of these marriages are still going strong, others have collapsed.

Here are six WWE Superstars who married other wrestlers' sisters.

#6. WWE Hall of Famer Jim Neidhart

Before entering professional wrestling, Jim Neidhart pursued an NFL career. He played for the Oakland Raiders and Dallas Cowboys. Nonetheless, he decided to pursue a wrestling career after his release from the Dallas Cowboys in the late 1970s.

Neidhart then traveled to Calgary to train with Stu Hart. He joined Hart's Stampede Wrestling and was the last wrestler Stu trained himself. Neidhart also married his trainer's daughter, Elizabeth. They tied the knot in 1979 and remained together for 39 years until Neidhart passed away in 2018.

In addition to being Stu Hart's daughter, Neidhart's wife was also Bret Hart's sister. Her husband and brother worked together for many years in WWE as members of The Hart Foundation. The two wrestlers held the WWE Tag Team Championship twice in 1987 and 1990.

Bret and Neidhart also competed against each other in a few tag team matches. Nonetheless, they went one-on-one only once in 1994, when The Hitman defeated The Anvil.

Neidhart also worked with Elizabeth's younger brother, Owen. Together, they formed The New Foundation in 1991. They teamed up in several tag team matches between 1991 and 1997.

Jim Neidhart and Bret Hart's sister have three daughters, Jennifer, Natalya, and Kristen. Only Natalya has followed in her father's footsteps, becoming a wrestler. She is currently active on SmackDown.

#5. Former WWE Champion Bryan Danielson

Brie Bella and her twin sister Nikki joined WWE in 2007. Three years later, Brie first met Bryan Danielson (FKA Daniel Bryan).

In her book Incomparable, the Hall of Famer recalled her first encounter with the Planet's Champion.

"Before we were ever in a storyline together, we talked for the first time at the baggage claim in New York City. I had just moved to the city, and it was clear that he had no clue which Bella I was (...) A few months later, they developed a storyline for me and Nicole where we were both in hot pursuit of him," she wrote.

Although she was initially not interested in dating wrestlers, Brie changed her mind after working with Danielson. As the two wrestlers chatted, they discovered that they had a lot in common.

Danielson dated Nikki Bella's twin sister for a few years before they tied the knot in April 2014. They now have two children together.

Brie is currently a Hall of Famer and Ambassador for Vince McMahon's company. Meanwhile, Danielson left WWE last year to join AEW. He is now active in Tony Khan's company.

#4. WWE Hall of Famer Davey Boy Smith

WWE Hall of Famer Davey Boy Smith also married one of Bret Hart's sisters. The former Intercontinental Champion kicked off his professional wrestling career in the late 1970s. In the early 1980s, he moved from the UK to Canada to join Stu Hart's Stampede Wrestling.

After moving to Canada, Smith lived with Bret in a small house in Calgary. He also met Bret and Owen Hart's sister, Diana, in 1981. In an old interview, the former European Champion disclosed how he and Diana fell in love with each other.

"I met [Diana] when I first came to Calgary in 1981. She saw my picture in the Stampede Wrestling Magazine and she asked who I was. I’d met Bruce [Hart] in 1977 in England when I was training to be a wrestler. Bruce said [to Diana] that I was Dynamite’s cousin and was coming over to wrestle for Stampede wrestling. She took my picture out of the magazine and put it in her high school binder (...) I came over and I met her. She came over to Bret’s house and was looking for someone to go to a movie with her and a friend. She was trying to call Owen [Hart], and I said I’ll go with you. I don’t mind. We went to the movie together, and we’ve been together even since," he said in 1998.

In August 1985, Smith and Diana welcomed their first child, Harry. A year later, they tied the knot. They then had their second child, Georgia, in 1989. Nonetheless, the couple's marriage ended in divorce in 2000.

Smith joined WWE in 1984. He spent nearly four years in the company before leaving in 1988. However, the former tag team champion returned in 1990 to spend another two years before departing again.

In 1994, Smith returned once more for three more years. Nevertheless, he left to join WCW in 1997, where he only stayed a year.

In September 1999, he made his last comeback to WWE. However, his final run ended only a few months later. The company announced Smith's departure in May 2000. Two years later, Smith passed away after suffering a heart attack.

#3. Former WWE Superstar Kenneth Cameron (FKA Bram)

Curiosidade: Bram foi casado com Charlotte Flair de 2013 há 2015.

Kenneth Cameron (AKA Thom Latimer) joined WWE in 2010 after competing for several years in other promotions. The 35-year-old spent nearly two years in FCW and NXT. However, he was released from his contract in 2012.

During his time in WWE, Cameron met and fell in love with Ric Flair's daughter and David Flair's sister, Charlotte. In her book "Second Nature: The Legacy of Ric Flair and the Rise of Charlotte," the current SmackDown Women's Champion revealed how she and Cameron started dating:

"I met Tom during his time as a trainee in the developmental program. We were friends and saw one another in groups of FCW people when we were all hanging out. We were both coming from recent relationships. Since we were friends, we agreed to take things slowly, which made sense (...) He had been released from his WWE developmental contract when we decided to try dating," she wrote.

In 2013, Cameron and Charlotte tied the knot in a private service. Their marriage lasted for two years before it ended in divorce in 2015. As The Queen explained in her book, they split because they wanted different things.

#2. WWE EVP Triple H

A year after joining WWE in 1995, Triple H started dating Chyna. Their relationship lasted nearly four years. However, The Game and The Ninth Wonder of the World split in 2000. That same year, he started dating Vince McMahon's daughter, Stephanie.

At the time, Stephanie's brother, Shane, was also on the roster. A few years ago, Bruce Prichard spoke about Shane's reaction to his sister dating The King of Kings:

"I don’t think Shane was happy and that’s me putting words in Shane’s mouth, but I don’t think Shane was happy at all. I think that Shane is very protective of Stephanie, very protective of his mother and if I were a betting man back then, I’d bet Shane wasn’t in favor of it, but he’s also not one of those guys who’s gonna go talk about it either," he said on the Something to Wrestle podcast.

Triple H and Stephanie dated for nearly three years before tying the knot in 2003. They now have three daughters.

The former WWE Champion and his brother-in-law have shared the ring several times over the past two decades. Nevertheless, they only squared off once in a singles bout, in which The Game came out with the victory.

#1. WWE Hall of Famer Edge

Edge and Val Venis first met in Canada in the early 1990s, a few years before they joined WWE. Back then, Venis introduced The Rated R Superstar to his family, including his 16-year-old sister, Alannah.

Five years later, Edge met Alannah again at a WWE event. In his autobiography "Adam Copeland on Edge," the former WWE Champion disclosed how he fell in love with his colleague's sister:

"It was the Over the Edge PPV in May 1998 in Milwaukee (...) That day Sean [Val Venis] grabbed me and said 'Ya gotta come meet my sister.' I said okay, but I didn’t see the big rush. I honestly couldn’t remember his sister's name or what she looked like from our brief encounter five years before. Sean led me to a seat in front of a good-looking blonde and announced that this was his sister Alanah. My, how she’d grown. There was an instant attraction (...) We started dating in June," he wrote.

The Rated R Superstar and Alannah dated for three years. The couple tied the knot in 2001. However, their marriage lasted for only three years. In 2004, they got divorced.

Val Venis retired from in-ring action in 2019. Meanwhile, Edge is currently active on Monday Night RAW. The Rated R Superstar is now married to WWE Hall of Famer Beth Phoenix.
