For whatever reason, most likely due to the whole 'fictional soap-opera' thing, World Wrestling Entertainment just loves putting two individuals together in an on-screen relationship. It is understandable: if you're going to attempt to give the impression of a 'Universe' then what is a universe without love?
Wrestling and romance go back a long way, with many memorable couples stealing our hearts over the years. 'Macho Man' Randy Savage and Miss Elizabeth stand out, as do Eddie Guerrero and Chyna, Edge and Vickie Guerrero, and Billy Gunn and Torrie Wilson.
Wait, what? Billy Gunn and Torrie Wilson? Yeah, sometimes WWE has a hair-brained scheme to put two people together only for them to flounder completely on-screen. Hard work can certainly go a long way to improving in-ring ability or even promo work, but chemistry between two human beings is something that simply can't be taught.
WWE has failed to learn this over the years, and as a result the history of WWE romance is littered with couples that lacked that most vital of romantic ingredients. Here are 10 WWE on-screen couples that had a grand total of zero chemistry.
Born in the middle of Wales in the middle of the 1980's, John can't quite remember when he started watching wrestling but he has a terrible feeling that Dino Bravo was involved. Now living in Prague, John spends most of his time trying to work out how Tomohiro Ishii still stands upright. His favourite wrestler of all time is Dean Malenko, but really it is Repo Man. He is the author of 'An Illustrated History of Slavic Misery', the best book about the Slavic people that you haven't yet read. You can get that and others from www.poshlostbooks.com.
