THEY say age is nothing but a number, but you can't help but notice the age gaps between these wrestlers and their partners.

These WWE stars are staying young by getting together with younger lovers.


And despite the age difference, this hasn't stopped their relationships from flourishing.

Here's 10 that have stood the test of time.

BROCK LESNAR AND STABLE, 10 YEARS

At 53, Sable is the elder party in her romance with Brock Lesnar, 43.

She was a pin-up of the WWE during the Attitude Era and was wed twice before she was wooed by The Beast Incarnate.

The couple married in 2006 and have two sons – Turk and Duke.

Their romance has stood the test of time some 10 years later.

SHAWN SPEARS AND PEYTON ROYCE, 11 YEARS

At 39, Spears does look younger than his age.

So, maybe the difference in age between the Canadian star and Aussie Peyton Royce, 28, doesn't look so obvious.

They married in 2019, since then Spears has been rebuilding his career AEW, while Relentless Royce is a former Women's Tag Team Champion.


MATT AND REBY HARDY, 12 YEARS

As wrestling Wag's go, there are none more committed than Reby – who regularly speaks her mind on social media.

Former WWE Tag Team Champion Matt Hardy dated Lita for six years and then Ashley Massaro before settling down with Reby.

Matt, 46, is looking to make waves in AEW – while Reby, 34, has hardly been in the ring since 2016.

DWAYNE JOHNSON AND LAUREN HASHIAN, 13 YEARS

The Rock, 48, met Lauren in 2006, when he was shooting the movie The Game Plan.

And they've been inseparable ever since, despite the 13 years between them.

Incredibly, they've also managed to keep their relationship private – despite Johnson becoming the biggest actor on the planet – getting secretly married in 2019.

They have two children together.

TH UNDERTAKER AND MICHELLE MCCOLL, 15 YEARS

The Deadman, real name Mark Calaway, was married twice before, but that didn't deter him from walking down the aisle for a third time.

In 2018, Calaway, 55, and former two-time WWE Divas Champion McCool, 40, said their 'I do's' and have a child together.

The Undertaker officially retired from the WWE in 2020 after an incredible career.

KURT ANGLE AND GIOVANNA YANNOTTI, 18 YEARS

After divorcing Karen Smedly in 2008, Kurt Angle began dating stunning Giovanna, who is 18-years his junior.

They met on the set of End Game in 2009 and were married three years later.

They have four children together, as well as an adopted son from Bulgaria.

RIC FLAIR AND WENDY BARLOW, 19 YEARS

A notorious ladies' man, Flair once claimed he took 10,000 women 'on a ride to his Space Mountain'.

He was married to Charlotte Flair's mum Elizabeth Harrell for 23 years, until they divorced in 2006.

In 2018, Flair, 71, tied the knot with current wife Wendy Barlow, 19 years his junior. He's walked down the aisle five times.

HULK HOGAN AND JENNIFER MCDANIEL, 21 YEARS

Hulk Hogan's previous marriage to Linda Claridge imploded when he was accused of cheating on his wife with Christiane Plante, who was friends with his daughter Brooke.

Before his divorce was finalised in 2009, Hogan, 67, began dating make-up artist Jennifer McDaniel.

21 years his junior, they were engaged the same year his divorce came through – marrying in Florida in 2010.

BRET HART AND STEPHANIE WASHINGTON, 26 YEARS

Bret, 63, began wrestling in the 1970s – before his wife Stephanie Washington, 37, was even born.

But that didn't stop love blossoming between the pair who married in 2010.

Previously, Hart was married to Julie Smadu and they had four children together.


JERRY LAWLER AND LAURYN MCBRIDE, 39 YEARS

The King of Memphis, 71, and his longterm partner Lauryn, 32, have been together since 2011.

But they've had their ups and downs – with the pair once getting arrested in 2016 on charges of domestic abuse, that were later dropped.

In 2018, Lawler revealed he had a stroke while they were having sex.

He revealed on his Dinner With The King podcast: "I got up and I said something to Lauryn and I didn’t really feel anything, and she said 'what did you say?'


"And I realised then that whatever I said didn’t sound right, and then she looked at me – we made eye contact – and she said 'oh my god Jerry, go look in the mirror'.

"I walked around to the bathroom and I look in the mirror and the whole right side of my mouth is drooping all the way down to my chin."

It was then Lauryn told him "Oh my god, you're having a stroke."
