5 Current WWE Superstars you may not know are dating fellow wrestlers

There are a number of couples in WWE at present that have made their relationships public. The likes of Seth Rollins and Becky Lynch as well as The Miz and Maryse have been able to become power couples in WWE. The Miz and Maryse even have their own reality TV show.

Whilst several couples have been able to share the personal details of their relationships with the world, others have been somewhat private about their personal lives. At the same time, several of these couples are still coming through the ranks in WWE and remain relatively unknown to the more casual members of the WWE Universe.

The following list looks at just five current WWE Superstars you didn’t know were dating fellow wrestlers in WWE and other companies.


#5. Current WWE Superstar Rhea Ripley and Demetri Jackson

Rhea Ripley is the only woman in WWE history to hold the NXT UK, NXT and RAW Women’s Championships. The Nightmare lost her Championship back at Money in the Bank when she battled Charlotte Flair, who then lost the Championship to Nikki A.S.H. just 24 hours later on Monday Night RAW.

Ripley has had a fantastic career so far, and it’s hard to believe that the former Champion is just 24 years old. Despite her young age, Ripley has already made quite the impact and is already quite settled in her personal life.

The former NXT star has been quite open about the fact that she is dating fellow professional wrestler Demetri Jackson. The star is known as ‘Action Man’ and has only been wrestling for a few years on the Independent Circuit.

Demetri and Rhea began dating back in 2019 and have posted several images online showing how loved up they are. Prior to stepping into a wrestling career, Demetri was an Olympic weightlifter and has a Master’s Degree in Sports and Exercise Science.

It’s interesting to note that it was current WWE star Drew McIntyre who motivated him to become a professional wrestler. Despite this, Jackson has appeared for WWE’s rivals AEW in the past. The Action Man made an appearance on AEW Dark in a tag team match against Best Friends in August 2020.

#3. Current WWE Commentator Vic Joseph and McKenzie Mitchell

NXT Commentator Vic Joseph has been in a relationship with fellow WWE broadcaster McKenzie Mitchell for almost a year.

The couple went public with their relationship in the fall of 2020 when Joseph posted an Instagram update noting that he was thankful for a list of things, including McKenzie Mitchell.

Joseph has been with WWE since May 2017 and has worked on 205 Live, Monday Night RAW and NXT. McKenzie Mitchell joined the company in September 2019 and hosted several online shows before becoming a backstage interviewer.

Ahead of joining WWE, Mitchell spent three years working for IMPACT Wrestling. Joseph has been a commentator for a number of years and has worked for several radio stations and wrestling companies including House of Hardcore and Absolute Intense Wrestling.

Whilst the couple are not active wrestlers on WWE TV, they are still popular with the WWE Universe and keep their fanbase updated with their relationship on their Instagram accounts.

#2. Current WWE Superstar Leon Ruff and referee Aja Smith

Leon Ruff signed with WWE back in October 2020 and has since become one of the most entertaining stars on the brand. Ruff won the NXT North American Championship early in his career when he was able to defeat Johnny Gargano after the roulette wheel chose him as his opponent.

Ruff is currently in a relationship with fellow WWE star and NXT official Aja Smith, who has been seen officiating Ruff’s matches in the past. The couple have been dating for a number of years and announced their engagement in November 2020.

Together, the couple also have a dog called Juni, whom they often share images of on Instagram. Until the couple announced their engagement last year, they were relatively unknown, but have since become one of the company’s cutest pairings.

There have been recent reports suggesting that Aja Smith is set to be called up to the main roster after she was spotted backstage at SmackDown. It’s unclear if Ruff will be heading up to the main roster alongside his fiancee.
