Maria Kanellis
Friday was a big day for Maria Kanellis. She is now a married woman. For those of you that do not know, her husband is ROH star Mike Bennett, whom she has been dating for approximately three years now. There were talks of WWE bringing him into their developmental program a while back, but nothing has surfaced since then, so the belief is that the ship has sailed on that.

Dolph Ziggler
After their segment on Monday Night Raw this week, there is a lot of speculation going around about Dolph Ziggler and Summer Rae. There has been no confirmation that they are dating in real life. The belief is that this is a move by WWE to make both of them slightly more relevant and to have a foil for Fandango and Layla El. This on screen relationship between Ziggler and Summer could be a short term thing.

Bully Ray
During a recent radio interview, Bully Ray shocked a lot of wrestling fans when he revealed that he was dating Velvet Sky. Many were under the impression that the TNA Knockout was still dating Chris Sabin, who recently left the company as a free agent.

Fandango
Since their characters are constantly kissing one another on Monday Night Raw and Smackdown, fans have naturally been wondering if Fandango and Layla El are really dating in real life.

Rikishi
Another interesting name that has surfaced in the rumor mill as a potential hall of fame inductee at Wrestlemania 31 is Rikishi.
