6 Wrestling Couples that split up but still worked professionally for same company

The business of professional wrestling often demands stars and behind-the-scenes personnel to be on the road for nearly 300 days. Therefore it has been a common practice for them to find love amongst each other in regards to spending time away from their world of people.

However, not all relationships have stood the test of time, and often witnessed these stars drifting apart, but continue to be professional co-workers, following the tradition of the ‘show must go on.’ Here are 6 couples in wrestling that have continued to work with each other after parting ways in their personal lives:

1. Finn Balor and Cathy Kelly

Finn Balor has been regarded as one of the most gifted athletes in WWE, while Cathy Kelly has served as a backstage interviewer and presenter for the company. The couple began dating back in 2017 and were notably spotted on numerous occasions including the WWE Hall of Fame ceremony with their relationship lasting for almost a year.


However, they parted ways somewhere around 2018, but even today have been professional with each other as seen during a backstage interview when Cathy spoke with Finn and his faction.

2. Lana and Miro

The dynamic duo of Lana and Miro came up through the ranks of WWE NXT and became a strong unit on the main roster during the mid-2010s. Moreover, they even found love with each other and got married in 2016. Moreover, the couple has been spotted spending quality time on social media multiple times and most recently featured together on AEW programming.

However, in a shocking turn of events, Lana and Miro announced their separation a while back, but mentioned in their statement to remain friends and co-workers moving forward.


3. Charlotte Flair and Alberto Del Rio

The Queen Charlotte Flair began dating Mexican star Alberto Del Rio following her main roster call-up in 2015. However, it lasted only for a brief tenure as Del Rio moved on to be with her PCB cohort, Paige. Despite that, Flair maintained a professional relationship with the former WWE Champion. But that didn’t last long as Del Rio exited the company sometime around 2017 while Flair went on to marry another Mexican star in Andrade El Idolo in 2022.

4 Dolph Ziggler and Dana Brooke

The unlikely duo of Dolph Ziggler and Dana Brooke came together sometime in 2015 when Brooke was still part of WWE NXT while Ziggler would make trips down there for his workout sessions and possibly spend time with her.

However, as soon as Dana Brooke made her way to the main roster in 2016, the couple decided to split but maintained a healthy working relationship. Moreover, they found themselves as co-workers once again after both joined TNA Wrestling in 2024 as two important acquisitions from WWE.


5. Alexa Bliss and Buddy Murphy

Buddy Murphy and Alexa Bliss began their relationship during their time in NXT where they were part of the same faction alongside Wesley Blake. Following that, Alexa was called up to the main roster in 2016 and Buddy would join her later on as a part of the 205 Live brand for Cruiserweights.

The duo even got engaged and were featured on Total Divas as well. But some time after, their wedding was called off and both moved on with their partners, Ryan Cabrera and Rhea Ripley, and even maintained their friendship till the time both were in WWE.

6 John Cena and Mickie James

The top star duo of John Cena and Mickie James reportedly dated each other during the late 2000s while Cena was still married. However, after their split James moved to the SmackDown brand and was eventually released in the same year. But she came back in 2017 and was able to talk more openly about her past relationship, working closely onscreen with John Cena’s then-girlfriend Nikki Bella and staying on the same brand as him for a while then before The Champ went on a hiatus.


Moreover, Cena and James both found love eventually as Mickie got married to current SmackDown GM Nick Aldis and have a son together, while John tied the knot in a private ceremony with model Shay Shariatzadeh.
