72 Real-Life Wrestling Relationships In Pictures (3/3)


Wrestling Relationships70. Will Ospreay & Bea Priestley

A few years ago, Will & Bea confirmed they are in a relationship. When possible, Priestley accompanies her boyfriend to his matches. They worked in World Of Sport together for a while. As Will works for New Japan, they announced they would be getting a house there. AEW signed Bea for their women’s division in the early months, but an altercation between her & Sadie Gibbs at All Out sidelined her for a long time; while Sadie was not seen again.

Priestley returned in March 2020, teaming with Nyla Rose. She attacked the champion after their match and stated her claim to challenge for the title. Bea never got the chance however, as management released her. Will continues to work for New Japan as one of their best junior heavyweights.

Wrestling Relationships71. Xia Brookside & Sean Kustom

Xia is the daughter of British Legend Robbie Brookside. She is a 20-year-old NXT UK superstar, making her one of the youngest in the company. There’s a lot to build on, but she has the tools to be a champion someday. Sean Kustom is an Australian independent wrestler working in the UK.

Going by their social media, it looks like they’ve been together since 2018 at the earliest. Kustom’s biggest matches to date were against Ryback, which he says gave him a lot more confidence as a wrestler. After stumbling across an old blogspot diary from 2009, he says his biggest idols are The Rock & Randy Orton. He currently works for UK promotions RevPro and Defiant.

72. Zack Ryder (Matt Cardona) & Chelsea Green *Engaged*

Zack Ryder used to be in a relationship with Tenille Dashwood (AKA Emma), but I cannot confirm when they called it off. It is reported that Cardona & Green got together in 2017 while she was with Impact Wrestling as “Laural Van Ness”. Ryder worked on WWE SmackDown as one-half of The Hype Bros with Mojo Rawley.

Van Ness was going through the maniacal bride phase, obsessed with getting married to someone… anyone really (except Grado). Ryder lived in Orlando, Florida, the same city as the original Impact Zone at Universal Studios. So somewhere, somehow, they met up and got to know each other. After sending out several feelers, Green eventually got a tryout at the WWE Performance Center and signed a contract.

She was assigned to the NXT brand and debuted under her real name in 2018. Fast forward to 2020, and Zack Ryder was released from WWE after 15 loyal years, with many others at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. He joined AEW a few months later, meaning the couple are both wrestling with their real names. They have been engaged for a year-and-a-half.
