Times a wrestler’s spouse discussed booking him online

Professional wrestling is a tough profession and requires commitment and consistency. Wrestlers are on the road most of the year, traveling between states and sometimes continents, leaving loved ones waiting. As Frankie Kazarian once said, “Being a wrestler’s wife is probably the hardest thing to do on this planet.”

This brings us to wrestling spouses who aren’t afraid to voice their opinions regarding the in-ring careers of their better halves. Whether it was the reservation or the overall treatment, these spouses ensured that the employer was attentive to the treatment of their loved ones.

8 Nick Aldis

Nick Aldis is currently married to Mickie James. Aldis discussed booking James while she was still working for WWE in 2020. The former NWA World Heavyweight Champion was asked if he thought WWE executive Bruce Prichard intentionally gave James less screen time due to his past issues with Aldis. James wrestled his rematch in 2020, but WWE gave screen time to Seth Rollins and Samoa Joe, who were both commentators at the time. Aldis said:

“You’re not suggesting that the chief executive of a publicly traded company with shareholders and huge television rights fees to maintain would be as petty as devaluing one of his own assets just to get revenge for a answer to a quarrel he started himself, right?”

He then praised James for being a smart woman who wouldn’t face unfair treatment from the sports and entertainment juggernaut.

seven The contractor

The Undertaker is a business legend and there’s no doubt about it. Taker is arguably the most loyal of Vince McMahon’s employees, something he reiterated in a hard-working shoot during the Attitude era. But The Deadman took issue with WWE snubbing his wife, Michelle McCool, from their Women’s History Month in 2020.

WWE released a tribute to Women’s Champions dating back to the ’90s but somehow forgot to include the first Divas Champion, Michelle McCool. McCool and her husband took to social media to remind WWE of the mistake, which they corrected hours later. Taker, however, was unimpressed and responded by saying: “Too little too late… amazing!!”


6 Andrade El Idolo

Andrade El Idolo met Charlotte Flair during her time in WWE. The two fell in love and announced their engagement in January 2020. They married in a lavish ceremony on May 27, 2022. The newlyweds traveled to Costa Rica for their honeymoon. The couple are known to be very supportive of each other.

Andrade even tried his luck in WWE for the controversial title swap segment between Flair and Becky Lynch in October 2021. The former NXT Champion didn’t mince words when he called his former employer, saying: “Damn…WWE!!!!!”

5 Sarah Ton

For those who aren’t in the know, Sarath Ton is the husband of WWE Superstar Sasha Banks. Sarath was employed by WWE in 2015, after appearing in a tag team squash match against Ryback in 2012. However, his in-ring career was cut short due to injury and he moved into a designer role costumes for the company in 2015.

In May 2022, Sarath reacted to reports that WWE had pulled Banks and Naomi from live events following their departure from the company due to creative differences. Sarath took to Twitter and simply said, “Spitting bulls**t is next level.”

4 jimmy uso

Jimmy Uso has the run of his life as one half of the undisputed tag team champions. It would seem ironic that WWE decided to make The Usos the double champions after Banks and Naomi left the company in the middle of a RAW.

Loyalty to WWE, however, hasn’t stopped Jimmy from showing his support for his wife. The Bloodline member posted a captionless photo of Banks and Naomi holding the Women’s Tag Team Championship belts to her Instagram story shortly after the incident.

3 Kim Orton

Kim Orton is the second and current wife of WWE Superstar Randy Orton. Kim was a big fan of The Viper before they met. The two have been married since November 14, 2015. The couple regularly posts on their respective social media about their love and affection for each other. Kim isn’t the only one shy about expressing her feelings, especially when it comes to Orton’s in-ring career.

Kim wasn’t happy when Orton wasn’t booked for RAW’s 25th anniversary show on January 22, 2018. Here’s what she wrote on Instagram,

“Can someone explain to me how @randyorton isn’t on Raw’s 25th anniversary tonight? He’s been on more episodes of Raw than anyone other than HHH, Michaels, Taker, Kane and Cena. Impressive roster no? So why NOT @randyorton? He also had some of the most memorable moments in Raw history. He’s also in the promo picture but isn’t in the show. It just doesn’t make sense to me. Enjoy the show tonight guys. I’m going to play MarioKart with my kids.

2 Melissa Santos

Melissa Santos met Brian Cage in Lucha Underground. For those unfamiliar with Cage’s work, watch his matches on IMPACT, PWG, and Lucha. Cage is truly a force to be reckoned with. Cage was revealed as the third member of Tully Blanchard Enterprises at ROH Supercard of Honor on April 1, 2022. Prior to this, Cage worked multiple AEW shows but was not featured regularly in the promotion, leading his wife to call Tony Khan and business on social media.

Melissa Santos later revealed that her straightforward comments rubbed some fans and peers the wrong way. She explained during an interview with Chris Van Vliet that she felt AEW was not using her husband to his full potential. She said she was biased towards Cage because she is married to him and he is her favorite wrestler.

1 Reby Hardy

Reby Hardy is perhaps the most outspoken spouse on this list, and that shouldn’t be taken negatively. Reby is currently married to AEW star Matt Hardy. The couple have four children together, three sons and a daughter. Reby has had outbursts on social media when it comes to her husband’s in-ring career. She criticized WWE for their treatment of Matt in 2019.

Matt was leaving WWE at the time and teased his exit in a cryptic tweet. Reby took a direct approach, calling out Matt’s former employer using words that aren’t PG, to say the least.

“You’ve paid off your debt, but they’ll still rub it in your face every time they get it (smiley face emoji upside down), that’s okay, we don’t claim that shit less than perfect never happened here (coffee emoji)”
