There Are More Couples In WWE Right Now Than Ever Before

There are a number of couples on WWE‘s main roster at present, with Aleister Black and Zelina Vega recently confirming their marriage for the first time publicly.

It appears that Black and Vega’s confirmation has pushed Tye Dillinger and Peyton Royce into finally confirming that they are also in a relationship for the first time.

The couple have been together now ever since their time in NXT, which was around three years ago and have since been able to make their relationship work while they were on separate brands.

Dillinger and Royce are now both working on SmackDown Live and Royce took the chance to wish “the love of my life” a Happy Birthday on Instagram.

Finn Balor Was Set For Main Event Push Back In 2016?

Finn Balor was on quite the roll back in 2016 when he was able to defeat Seth Rollins at his first main roster pay-per-view to become the first ever Universal Champion.

Sadly, Balor suffered a shoulder injury as part of this match after colliding with the barricade, which forced him to relinquish the Championship less than 24 hours later.

The current Intercontinental Champion then missed almost a year of action after he was forced to undergo surgery before returning and failing to reach the same level in the years that have followed.

According to Dave Meltzer of The Wrestling Observer, WWE had some huge plans for Balor before his injury.

“They were way, way behind him at the time and it just never got back to that situation again, but absolutely, yes. They were planning on making him — he wasn’t going to surpass Roman Reigns, but I think they wanted him to be close to that level,” he said via Ringsidenews.
