12 WWE couples who are/were together in real life
The life of a professional wrestler is gruelling. It’s a life of long hours on the road, followed by taking bumps inside the ring, followed by more hours on the road. Wrestlers are often tired, working for almost 300 days a year and hardly get time to spend with their family.
However, there have been a few lucky ones that have found their soul mate in the wrestling business. We take a look at the most renowned and prominent WWE couples.
#12 Jimmy Uso and Naomi
Jimmy Uso and Naomi tied the knot in January 2014. They have been a prominent feature of the reality show Total Divas. Jimmy, along with brother Jey, forms one of the better tag teams in the WWE. They have held tag team gold a couple of times in the company.
Naomi, on the other hand, debuted as one-half on the Funkadactyls cheerleading for Brodus Clay. Since then, she has come up a long way and is a singles competitor on SmackDown Live.
