At times, relationships taking place behind the scenes in WWE can be even more entertaining than the on-screen product. Fans want all the juicy details about what’s going on between certain stars behind the scenes.
2019 thus far is shaping out like a soap opera. We saw a controversial relationship between Corey Graves and Carmella. Also, most recently, JoJo announced her pregnancy—but we’ll have more on that a little later.
Topping it all off, it appears that both John Cena and Nikki moved on from their lengthy relationship. In just the last couple of days, we heard Nikki make her relationship official to the public while Cena was spotted with another mystery girl in Vancouver, Canada.
Yup, things just got even more interesting.
As if that wasn’t enough, there are a lot of other interesting couples in 2019–and some of them are relationships fans might not have even known about. On the flip side, we’ll also discuss relationships that might be against the ropes in 2019.
Enjoy the article folks and like always be sure to share it with a friend. Without further ado, let’s take a look at 11 of the most interesting WWE couple of 2019 so far and five that might on the ropes. We start and finish with the couples making the most noise as of late. Let’s begin!
16 Interesting - Nikki Bella & Artem Chigvintsev
Just hours before the John Cena photo surfaced, Nikki Bella confirmed on her new podcast that she is, in fact, dating Artem Chigvintsev–seriously, you can’t make this stuff up. Nikki admitted to People that they’re currently having a lot of fun. The two have taken part in lots of IG stories together, and TMZ has also taken pics of the couple out and about in the Los Angeles area.
For what it’s worth, Bella also admitted to TMZ that she’s never getting back together with John Cena. It appears that both have quite happily moved on in 2019 with other people.
15 On The Ropes - Tye Dillinger & Peyton Royce
There are no reported problems between Tye Dillinger and Peyton Royce. In fact, the couple kept things on the down low so well that most fans didn’t even know that they were dating.
We put them on this side of the list for the simple fact that they’re now with different companies. Both were members of the SmackDown Live roster until Dillinger asked for his release from the company. Given the hectic schedule of the WWE and Dillinger’s future independent schedule, making it work and spending time with one another might become a lot more difficult, putting this relationship on the shaky list.
14 Interesting - Braun Strowman & Kamilla Kaine
This is a very interesting couple and one that WWE star Braun Strowman has kept on the down low–this seems to be the trend with WWE stars dating people outside of the company. However, photos of the two backstage have surfaced. Strowman even posted a workout pic alongside his love interest.
Like Strowman, Kaine has now transferred into the wrestling business working the indie scene. Who knows if she’ll join Braun and the WWE, but at this point, all that really matters is that she continues to earn her stripes outside of the company. Maybe one day she’ll be escorting Strowman out to the ring.
13 Interesting - Ricochet & Kacy Catanzaro
This might just be the most talented couple in WWE. Ricochet is without a doubt one of the most exciting new talents on the main roster. Catazano is an up and comer with huge potential. She has a chance at being one of the very best in the women’s division.
Just prior to this relationship, Ricochet dated Impact talent Tessa Blanchard. Given that they work for different companies and have different schedules, it likely led to their early breakup. Both wasted no time finding new partners, as each half of the former pair announced new and interesting relationships in 2019.
12 Interesting - Bray Wyatt & JoJo Offerman
Details about this couple are very limited, and that’s because it was just a couple of days ago when Offerman dropped big news on the WWE Universe. According to the WWE ring announcer, she’s expecting a child alongside her new man Bray Wyatt. She took to IG discussing the matter;
“I’m so excited to announce baby Knash, coming this June! This has been the most beautiful, incredible experience of my life so far. I am so happy that I was able to use this time to enjoy this privately but now I’m ready to share it with you all. I could not be happier!!! This truly has been the biggest blessing. And words cannot explain how ready and excited we are to meet you my little man!”
11 On The Ropes - Alexa Bliss & Buddy Murphy
Perhaps it might have been exaggerated on the show, but during an episode of Total Divas, Jax questioned whether or not Bliss really wanted to marry WWE star Buddy Murphy. In response, Bliss didn’t seem to be too sure either. Surely, that wasn’t what Murphy wanted to hear.
Both seem to be doing their own separate things at the moment. Bliss seems to be predominantly used as a show host with her program A Moment Of Bliss on RAW while Murphy continues to lead the 205 Live division. It remains to be seen what the future will hold for these two.
10 Interesting – Zelina Vega & Aleister Black
This is another wrestling couple that caught everyone by surprise. Not only did WWE fans not know that the two are dating, but it came as an even bigger surprise to find out that they were engaged and later married. The two tied the knot during a quiet ceremony held outdoors. Both are now out of the Orlando area with NXT and traveling with WWE.
Vega is currently part of the SmackDown Live roster while Black continues to be used on both SmackDown and RAW. 2019 has been an interesting year, to say the least for the couple thus far. But they did recently make time for a quick honeymoon.
9 Interesting - Paige & Ronnie Radke
That’s right, Paige is once again dating, and she’s now with a new partner, singer and songwriter Ronnie Radke. Clearly, Paige has moved on just fine since her split from Alberto Del Rio. She seems to be in a better place nowadays with a partner that seems to have more of the same interests, as opposed to her past relationship with former WWE Champion Del Rio.
This interesting relationship continues to blossom in 2019 with both partners posting various IG posts and stories alongside one another. It looks to be an interesting 2019 for Paige, especially when assessing her WWE future.
8 On The Ropes - Lana & Rusev
Things aren’t going too smoothly for Lana and Rusev as of late. Lana continuously distances herself from WWE with various outside of the company projects. Not only that, but she was even removed from the Total Divas cast as it was said that the E! audience strongly dislikes Lana and Rusev. As you can imagine, Lana was very frustrated by this announcement, which was made by the network executives.
Some believe that her limited time on WWE TV along with the recent Total Divas snub might hurt her relationship with Rusev. Some also believe she might leave the company in 2019 as well. It’ll be interesting to see how this all plays out in the upcoming months.
7 Interesting - Charlotte & Andrade Almas
Just a couple of months ago, news started to surface about Charlotte and Almas as a couple behind the scenes. Charlotte has dated wrestlers in the industry. She even had a brief fling with Alberto Del Rio prior to his relationship with Paige.
We’re still very much interested in this relationship given that neither of them has said a word about it. According to The Sun, Charlotte did break her silence, though she totally diffused the situation, claiming if that was making the news, it must have been a slow news day. Of course, that's not exactly a denial, is it?
6 Interesting - Sonya Deville & Arianna Johnson
This new relationship remains somewhat of a mystery. It was reported previously that Deville was dating Seth Rollins’ ex. However, she seems to have moved on from that relationship. According to Ring Side News, she’s currently having lots of fun with her new partner, Arianna Johnson.
This is another couple that started to date publicly just a couple of weeks back–or at least that’s what we assume given the IG photos of the two that are now making the rounds online. Ironically, she does resemble Deville’s WWE partner Mandy Rose, rocking that signature blonde head of hair, so who knows what the real story is.
5 One The Ropes - Dana Brooke & Enes Kanter
There really isn’t any story out there about this new couple being on the ropes or anything like that. Instead, we make this assumption based on the different lives they live, constantly traveling and on the road away from one another. Kanter is an NBA player moving around from town to town on the regular. The only time he isn’t touring with his team is when he’s recovering on the sidelines.
As for Brooke, she also travels like a circus act, having two or three days tops at home per week. Given their crazy schedules, the two might be on the ropes sooner rather than later.
4 Interesting - Nikki Cross & Killian Dane
This is one of those couples that has us scratching our heads simply because we’ve never really seen or heard about anything of these two outside of the ring. However, according to Ring Side News, the two are very much a couple out of the ring. Without a doubt, the relationship strengthened given their time together with NXT. Also, it helps that two are part of the same faction on-screen, Sanity.
The couple moved on from NXT and are on the main roster. We haven’t seen much of both but we expect that to change once WrestleMania comes to an end. We hope to see more candid photos of these two outside of the ring during 2019.
3 On The Ropes - Dean Ambrose & Renee Young
The biggest surprise of 2019 has to be Dean Ambrose choosing to leave WWE. Dean has been one of the main acts on WWE television for the last couple of years. His wife Renee also continues to enjoy tremendous success, becoming the first ever female to join the RAW broadcast booth.
With Dean choosing to leave, lots of fans are starting to question the future of this relationship. With Dean set to join AEW or possibly another indie promotion, that’ll make his schedule really different from Renee's. Fans are hoping they can still make things work when the reality of working for different companies sets in.
2 Interesting - Becky Lynch & Jeff Dye
Quietly, Becky Lynch split from her ex-boyfriend, UFC star Luke Sanders. Along with lots of WWE success, Lynch is also enjoying her current relationship—one she continues to keep on the down low—with comedian Jeff Dye. The two do have some pictures together, along with candid photos taken by fans, and they appear to be very close and happy.
We look forward to hearing more about this relationship throughout 2019. What we do know for sure is that Becky’s in line for a huge push with WWE, perhaps with a shot at becoming the face of the company. Clearly, big things are happening for her this year.
1 Interesting - John Cena & The Mystery Girl From Vancouver
The internet nearly broke a couple of days ago with a picture surfacing online of John Cena and his new mystery girl. Cena is currently in Vancouver shooting the film Playing With Fire. He was spotted with this unidentified mystery girl, and according to TMZ, the two shared a romantic dinner and followed that up with a nice little stroll around the city.
Without a doubt, this has to be the most intriguing couple of 2019, especially given that the photo came just days after Nikki confirmed her new relationship with her former Dancing with the Stars partner. It'll be exciting to see where all of these couples head later this year, and beyond.
