We don’t know about you but we miss seeing Batista (born Dave Bautista) go up against WWE heavyweights like The Rock and John Cena. Today people know him best as Drax the Destroyer in “Guardians of the Galaxy” – a role that seems like it was made for him.
Bautista’s been married many times before but one of his most publicized and adored marriages was with pole dancer Sarah Jade in 2015. She was his third wife but it seemed like this union was for keeps. Sadly, this was not to be and the couple divorced in 2019 after being married for four years.
Tommy Dreamer & Beulah McGillicutty
Tommy Dreamer enjoyed a long stint in the WWE but retired soon after. Fans were curious to know what the wrestler got up to after retirement. It turns out that Tommy Dreamer was finding love and happily so with fellow wrestler, Beulah McGillicutty.
From 1995 to 1998, Trisa Hayes, best known as the flamboyant Beulah McGillicutty on WWE was a crowd puller on Extreme Championship Wrestling. She retired from wrestling to go back to college and marry the love of her life, Tommy Dreamer in 2002. The couple is still going strong and even share twin daughters together. The kids have even starred in “The Sopranos” as Tony Soprano’s nieces!
El Hijo del Vikingo & Aleidis Luchadora
While he might not be as much of a household name as Rey Mysterio, El Hijo del Vikingo has made plenty of splashes in the world of luchador wrestling and beyond. So much so that the wrestler with the peculiar name has even performed at the WWE's main competitor, All Elite Wrestling (AEW).
Outside of the ring, Vikingo is in a relationship with fellow luchador wrestler, Aleidis Luchadora. What you'll notice about this couple though is that while Vikingo is happy these days to reveal his face, Aleidis always makes sure that her face remains hidden in every photo on social media, whether she's wearing a mask or being covered by an emoji.
Sable & Brock Lesnar
As the undeniable Beast Incarnate, Brock Lesnar has struck fear in the hearts of many a wrestler. It’s hard to imagine WWE without the star even though he became part of the federation only in 2000. But did you know he found love early on with one of the original WWE divas? Lesnar only had eyes for Sable who's a superstar in her own right.
She's 10 years older than him but what’s age when it comes to true love? The couple married in 2006 and have two sons together. As WWE couples, Sable and Lesnar are some of the exceptions to the norm. Despite being big-name WWE stars, the pair prefers a life of privacy. They’ve seemingly built a fulfilling and enduring relationship over the years along with their two kids.
David Otunga & Jennifer Hudson
This pair is an example of when the partner is more famous than the WWE wrestler. Jennifer Hudson needs no introduction. Before she became a mega superstar, however, she was able to enjoy dating outside the public eye – like the time she dated former WWE superstar, David Otunga.
Otunga has chosen a different career path now, but he’s best known for his time on the WWE. He was one of the original members of the Nexus and version 2 of it called The New Nexus. Otunga became a two-time Tag Team Champion along with team members John Cena and Michael McGillicutty. Hudson and Otunga got engaged and even had a kid together but officially separated in 2017.
