R-Truth has been part of the wrestling scene (albeit on and off) since the WWE Attitude era. He first made a splash during a legendary Tag Team championship match. The wrestler teamed up with Road Dogg (imagine that unlikely pairing) and won! But the anchor behind many of his successes has always been his wife.
R-Truth has been married to Pamela Killings since 2011. Like many wives who come from outside the industry, Killings prefers staying as far away from the spotlight as possible. The couple is still going strong and has been blessed with a daughter. R-Truth has also made appearances in other federations such as TNA.
Billy Gunn & Paula Sopp
Billy Gunn has always been overshadowed by other memorable WWE superstars. He was part of Degeneration X and the other half of the New Age Outlawz. But nobody seems to remember his achievements, except him winning the 1999 King of the Ring. His quest for love ended up being a happier story.
Although his first marriage didn’t work out, Gunn eventually found true love with Paula Sopp and married her in 2009. Sopp usually keeps a low profile but her husband occasionally posts pictures of them together on Instagram. Gunn’s social media posts make it clear that she’s the rock in the marriage. She’s always been a crucial part of his life and remains that way still.
Mick Foley & Colette Christie
Whether you know him as Mankind, Cactus Jack, or Dude Love, Mick Foley’s legacy is one for the books. His journey to wrestling superstardom began as early as 1983, a good decade before he made it big. While trying to find his feet, he even starred in “Deadbeats” – a short film that also featured an aspiring actor called Colette Christie.
The two hit it off. Christie supported his crazy wrestling dreams even though she didn’t come from the same world. The couple married in the 90s and have four children. They’ve defied the trope of unsuccessful marriages in the wrestling world. The Foleys have made careers, life, and family work beautifully for over three decades now.
Kalisto & Abigail Rodriguez
Kalisto could be the next best thing after Rey Mysterio. There's no denying that. But he's been determined to blaze his own trail instead of living in the shadows of his successor's luchador legacy. He hasn't always been successful but you can't fault the athlete for his tenacity! Since joining the wrestling big leagues, Kalisto has taken some significant steps in his personal life too.
Not too many fans realize that the wrestler has been married to Abigail Rodriguez for a long time. She’s often appeared alongside him in WWE events and Hall of Fame ceremonies. The couple is very protective about their personal space — probably why their story has flown under the radar and why they seem blissfully happy.
Mark Henry & Jana Perry
Mark Henry is one of the most woefully underrated WWE superstars. When you consider how long he's been in the WWE (hint: the world knew it as WWF still) it’s criminal how he never gets his due. Henry was a World champion and a two-time Olympian. The man took on legends like The Undertaker and Val Venus.
They didn’t call him the World’s Strongest Man for nothing! The consistency and formidable strength seem to spill over into his personal life too. Henry has been married to Jana Perry since 2005. The couple has consciously kept their private life out of the press. We don’t know much about Perry except that she lives a blissful life with her husband and two kids in Texas.
