Drew McIntyre has won the WWE Championship and the prestigious Royal Rumble title. But the wrestler wasn’t as lucky in love initially. He married Taryn Terell in 2009. The marriage wasn’t meant to be despite them belonging to the same WWE universe. But McIntyre found love again with a doctor named Kaitlyn Frohnapfel.
In his biography, McIntyre shares how they first met and why he believes his late mother had something to do with it. It was 2013 and McIntyre was mourning the loss of his mother. He was also feeling demotivated at work. He was at a Tampa bar with Sheamus one night when Frohnapfel approached them. The rest is history.
Charlotte Flair & Andrade
Most people know AEW star Manuel Oropeza AKA Andrade. And of course, everyone knows his wife, Charlotte Flair. She’s WWE royalty and a second-generation wrestler. Her father is none other than the legendary Ric Flair. That saying about the apple and the tree extends further in this case.
Just like her father, Charlotte’s personal life and relationships have been tumultuous. She had a rocky relationship with Riki Johnson after which she got married to Thomas Latimer for two years. Just when it looked like she was in a hopeless place, Flair found love with Andrade. The pair got married in Mexico in 2020. Recently, the rumor mill has been spinning with whispers about a breakup but all of it is speculation still.
Goldust & Ta-Rel Roche
It’s been a hot minute since Goldust was at once entertaining and creeping fans out in face paint with some seriously risqué gimmicks in the ring. For WWE fans in the early ‘90s, his black and gold painted face and eccentric persona will forever remain etched in collective memory.
Born Dustin Runnels, Goldust led an equally colorful life outside the ring. He was famously married thrice. His first marriage was to Terri Runnels, a well-known WWE personality and television host but the marriage fell apart. Then came his marriage to Milena Martelloni which ended within a year. He then married Ta-Rel Marie in 2012.
Becky Lynch & Seth Rollins
Becky Lynch and Seth Rollins are married and have a child together. When you look at the couple now vs. then, you see that it was always evident that the two were meant to be. Monday Night RAW has always been home for them.
And while they have now settled in comfortably to being a WWE couple, things weren’t as smooth sailing when they first got together. Lynch, better known as “The Man” has shared how she was worried about the public perception of them being an item. Balancing who to be in the ring and outside it was harder for Lynch than Rollins.
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!
