Sarath Ton had an intriguing start to his wrestling career. He made his debut in the ring as Kid Mikaze in the Premier Wrestling Federation before his WWE RAW debut as Rutherford Hayes in June 2012. He performed in the ring multiple times but was soon sidelined after a serious head injury. Ton decided to stay on but as a costume designer.
WWE even gave him the moniker Mikaze, a nod to his first stage name. It turned out to be fate because that’s when he first met Mercedes Varnado (AKA Sasha Banks) in 2010 when she was contemplating a makeover to have a wider audience appeal. She liked his work and him, a little more. The feeling was mutual. The two married and are still going strong today.
Alberto Del Rio & Paige
Alberto Del Rio has had a tumultuous love life. After his first marriage dissolved amid rumors of adultery, he jumped ship from his first wife, Angela Velkei, to fellow wrestler and famous Diva Paige. Paige's real name is Saraya-Jade Bevis, a Brit whose high-flying moves have landed her at the top of the Divas list more than once.
These two big names – both in length and status – joined forces by announcing their engagement in 2016, but split in 2017. Paige moved on to Falling in Reverse lead singer Ronnie Radke. Alberto shacked up with nobody and was arrested on multiple charges in May of 2020.
Bray Wyatt & Samantha Rotunda
Bray Wyatt, born Wingham Lawrence Rotunda, married his university sweetheart Samantha Rotunda in 2012. For a while, everything seemed rosy. Things went according to plan for five years and the couple even had two children – Kendyl and Cadyn. The marriage began to fall apart when Rotunda began suspecting her husband of infidelity.
She was right to be suspicious. Wyatt had reportedly been having a secret relationship with Jojo Offerman, a WWE announcer. Some say Wyatt walked out of the marriage while others believe it was Rotunda who filed for divorce. Despite a turbulent personal life, Wyatt remained a crowd-puller on WWE Raw until his untimely passing in August 2023. He was only 36.
Rob Van Dam & Sonia Delbeck
Only a handful of wrestlers have a moniker as awesome as “Rob Van Dam.” And even fewer can boast of a rock-solid marriage without much drama, relatively speaking. RVD and Sonia Delbeck married in 1998. Even though other power couples in the WWE got most of the spotlight, RVD and Delbeck were endgame and went about things quietly.
For years, she traveled with him as he pursued his wrestling career. Fans were shocked when the couple announced their split after almost 20 years of being together. RVD shared on his socials that they were divorcing since Delbeck was allegedly unfaithful. Despite irreconcilable differences, the couple stated that they remain friends.
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.
