WWE couple Corey Graves and Carmella announce their engagement on social media

Carmella is celebrating her 34th birthday, and she got a very nice birthday gift from her longtime boyfriend, WWE Monday Night Raw commentator Corey Graves.

An engagement ring.

The two are just the recent of many couples in wrestling who date and then get engaged. Some get married and happy lives together; Tyson Kidd and Natalya are an example of that. As are The Miz and Maryse. Bryan Danielson and Brie Bella too.

Some don’t quite make it; John Cena and Nikki Bella had one of the most famous proposal’s at Wrestlemania 33, but ended up ending the engagement a few years later.

Carmella, real name Leah Van Dale, and the 37-year-old Graves, real name Matthew Polinsky, have been together since 2019. Graves was married and is now divorced. Carmella previously dated Big Cass before the two got together.
