While we’re watching from home, we tend to get caught up in their gimmicks. Little do we realize, these larger than life WWE stars actually have personal lives like the rest of us outside of the ring. Dating isn’t the easiest and heck in a lot of cases, WWE stars date a fellow wrestler, cause in truth, it takes a wrestler to understand the grind of McMahon’s schedule.
In this article, we’ll take a unique look at WWE stars, including legends, that decided to date or marry, someone a lot younger. These are some major age gaps though in certain situations, we hardly even noticed. Though we can’t say the same for others, in some cases, we would assume that’s their daughter and not wife or girlfriend.
Enjoy the article folks!
17 JERRY LAWLER & LAURYN MCBRIDE – 39 YEARS
There’s deciding to go young and then there’s this – an age gap of almost four decades. Like he says, “it is good to be the king.”
The two had some problems over the years, one of which was Lawler having to be rushed to the hospital after an intercourse session...
16 SHEAMUS & ISABELLA REVILLA – 19 YEARS
When Celtic Warrior was in the business and getting started, chances are his current partner Isabella still was clueless as to what wrestling was.
Nonetheless, thanks to his tremendous transformation over the last year, the age gap really doesn’t look that noticeable. Sheamus hopes for the same ten years from now...
15 HULK HOGAN & JENNIFER MCDANIEL – 21 YEARS
In his prior marriage to Linda, the two were in the same age range. For his second marriage, Hulk decided to go a lot younger – getting hitched to Jennifer McDaniel.
You know your partner’s a lot younger when onlookers compare her looks to your daughter Brooke... ouch.
14 BRET HART & STEPHANIE WASHINGTON – 26 YEARS
The Hitman got hitched twice before. His first marriage is the one fans remember most, alongside Julie. We remember Julie during the Montreal Screwjob documentary, ripping into Triple H and the other boys backstage.
He had another marriage in-between, though these days he’s happily married to Stephanie Washington. They tied the knot in 2010.
13 KURT ANGLE & GIOVANNA YANNOTTI – 18 YEARS
No offense to Kurt but given the picture above, we would think that his wife Giovanna was his daughter... Of course, Angle had a prior relationship to Karen, though we all know how that ended with Jeff entering the picture.
Angle has his hands full out of the ring these days with a total of six children. He has some strong genes.
12 BATISTA & SARAH JADE – 20 YEARS
He briefly returned to WWE for one last match this year. Batista got the send-off he always wanted, taking on Triple H during the biggest show of the year, WrestleMania.
He’s in his 50s but honestly looking at Dave, he doesn’t look it one bit. Fans also wouldn’t assume that he’s two decades older than his wife, Sarah Jade.
11 THE UNDERTAKER & MICHELLE MCCOOL – 15 YEARS
Ultimately, McCool claims this relationship hurt her status with the peers behind the scenes. Michelle claims she was treated unfairly by the others due to the relationship.
She still has time to return, still in her 30s, at least for a couple more weeks. Heck, her man the Deadman is still going strong with sporadic matches every now and then.
10 RIC FLAIR & WENDY BARLOW – 19 YEARS
Oh yes, the Nature Boy knows a thing or two about marriages. Prior to his current wife Wendy Barlow, Flair walked down the aisle a grand total of four-times, spanning four different decades if you can believe.
Finally, at the age of 70, it appears as though the 16-time World Champion is settling down.
9 THE ROCK & LAUREN HASHIAN – 13 YEARS
Similar to Batista earlier in the article, we really wouldn’t assume such an age gap, especially given The Rock’s ridiculous physique these days.
Not only is he not aging but he actually seems to be gaining leaner muscle year after year. The guy is a freak and a true inspiration for millions of people.
8 MATT HARDY & REBY SKY – 12 YEARS
The couple met during Matt’s run outside of WWE and they would proceed to start a family in the upcoming years after that.
Reby seems to be out of the business these days, taking care of the family back at home in North Carolina. We haven’t seen much of Matt either, who’s used sporadically by WWE.
7 TRIPLE H & STEPHANIE MCMAHON – 7 YEARS
When Triple H first laced up the boots in ’92, Stephanie was only a teen and still at the high school level.
They would cross paths years later with WWE. During the late ‘90s, they started a relationship and today, they’re known as WWE’s power couple, likely to take over once Vince McMahon relinquishes control.
6 PEYTON ROYCE & TYE DILLINGER – 11 YEARS
This one is a unique relationship, to say the least. At the moment, Dillinger, aka Shawn Spears continues to work his craft with AEW while Peyton Royce remains with WWE.
Despite working for different companies, they’re making things work and they would even tie the knot.
5 RAYMOND ROWE & SARAH LOGAN – 9 YEARS
This is an underrated WWE couple that also recently tied the knot. Rowe continues to enjoy success on the main roster as a tag team act.
We really haven’t seen much of Sarah Logan since her faction came to an end. Ruby Riott has been out with an injury while Liv Morgan has also been kept off television due to a character change.
4 PAIGE & RONNIE RADKE – 9 YEARS
Paige has a thing for musicians, that we know and it was even documented during past episodes of Total Divas.
These days, she’s dating another musician, Ronnie Radke. It seems to be the real deal and the two are still happily together, posting several photos via IG.
3 SASHA BANKS & SARATH TON - 8 YEARS
Sasha doesn’t speak about her relationship to WWE seamstress Sarath Ton too often. She claims that fans get a little too harsh and that she really doesn’t like that – we can’t blame her.
The two share an age gap of eight years, which really isn’t too bad in comparison to some of the other gaps on the list.
2 FINN BALOR & VERONICA RODRIGUEZ – 6 YEARS
We’re still scratching our heads as to how Finn Balor is going to be a year away from 40 next year, set to turn 39 in 2020. He looks closer to 30 than 40, given his look and work-ethic in the ring.
2019 was a big year for the leader of the Balor Club, as he married Veronica Rodriguez.
1 BROCK LESNAR & SABLE – 10 YEARS
This age gap is certainly unique given that it works in the opposite direction. Lesnar is actually a decade younger than wife Sable.
The two quietly started a family out of the ring and they opted to move all that way to Saskatchewan, Canada. We haven’t seen much of Sable since she left WWE in the early 2000s.
