John Layfield has been keeping his finances in check mostly thanks to his wife Meredith Whitney, a financial analyst. The two got married in 2005, and they went to work diversifying portfolios, trading up, and…whatever else financial analysts do with their free time.
One of the things they were able to afford was a large, private residence in Bermuda, where the family has lived since 2015. While it might seem out of character for a high-flying wrestler to settle down with someone who works with numbers, it certainly does not hurt Layfield’s pocketbook. The two seem to have made it work.
Dean Ambrose & Renee Young
When TV personality Renee Young interviewed WWE star Dean Ambrose – ring name Jon Moxley – she ended up getting more than a good story. The two had instant chemistry and soon began dating. Four years later, they made it official and got married.
Get that picture of a beautifully-planned ceremony in a church out of your head – the two had a spur-of-the-moment wedding at their home in Las Vegas. We suppose that it is the right place to do it and we hope that at least they were surrounded by loved ones! These days, Ambrose performs in AEW as Jon Moxley.
Jeff & Karen Jarrett
While Jeff Jarrett is best known for knocking people on the head with his guitar, he is also a two-time husband. His first wife, Jill Jarrett, passed away tragically in 2007 after a fight with breast cancer. She was the mother of Jeff's three children, and the two had been together since high school.
Jeff was at first content with the widower life, but life had other plans when Karen Angle – the ex-wife of fellow wrestler Kurt Angle – entered his life two years later. Jeff and Karen each made their second trip down the aisle in 2010, and are still happily married.
Zack Ryder & Laurel Van Ness
These two are on their way to the top of the heap as far as WWE power couples go. Laurel Van Ness and Zack Ryder – real names Chelsea Anne Green and Matthew Cardona – both made huge splashes inside the ring starting in early 2017. They definitely stronger together than they are as individuals.
But this duo became tag team partners for life when they announced they had gotten engaged in 2019. They have yet to tie the knot, but if their relationship is anywhere near as strong as it appears on the screen in the ring, they have nothing to worry about.
Bianca Belair & Montez Ford
There aren't many female wrestlers out there who can call themselves as prolific or as talented as the one and only Bianca Belair. Known primarily for her incredibly long ponytail, which she uses as a weapon against her opponents, Belair has been climbing up the WWE ladder over the last few years and has reached the very top, making history by becoming the longest-reigning women's champion since 2006.
Her husband, Montez Ford, is also a talented wrestler in his own right, being one half of the popular tag team, the Street Profits. As wrestling power couples go, they are right up there with the very best.
