10 Women Behind WWE’s Biggest Superstars
3. AJ Lee, married to CM Punk
April Jeanette Mendez, better known under her WWE stage name AJ Lee, married fellow WWE superstar CM Punk earlier this year. CM Punk is now retired from wrestling, but AJ Lee continues to dominate in the league. She has won the WWE Divas Championship twice and has the longest streak ever as a WWE Divas Champion at 295 days. She is an avid fan of video games and won the WWE ’12 Superstar Challenge, when she defeated Mark Henry.
2. Kitty Toombs, married to Rowdy Roddy Piper
WWF/WWE legend Rowdy Roddy Piper, real name Roderick George Toombs, has been married to his wife Kitty since 1979, and the two have raised four children together. The couple famously appeared on Celebrity Wife Swap when Rowdy Roddy Piper swapped wives with a fellow WWF/WWE legend Ric Flair.
The contrast between the wrestling superstars’ family lives was stark. Flair has been married four times, and Rowdy Roddy Piper’s wife Kitty was not impressed by Flair’s flashy and extravagant lifestyle.
1. Jennifer Hudson, engaged to David Otunga
Academy Award winner and American Idol finalist Jennifer Hudson became engaged to two-time WWE Tag Team Champion David Otunga after he proposed in 2008. The couple met just one year earlier, and have since had a child together. Their son was born in 2009, and they named him David Daniel Otunga Jr.
The couple has yet to tie the knot, and there has been some speculation that the delay is due to Otunga having returned to wrestling full time against Hudson’s wishes.
