In the world of WWE, the ‘It Couple’ title is often associated with on-screen pairings that captivate fans with their charisma and chemistry. One such beloved ‘It Couple’ in the WWE Universe is Rhea Ripley and Dominik Mysterio. They are a dynamic duo, rarely seen apart, whether on television or social media. Despite portraying heel characters, this wrestling power couple has garnered a strong and affectionate following from fans. However, there’s a twist to this story that might surprise some: Rhea Ripley and Dominik Mysterio are not a real-life couple.
In reality, Ripley is engaged to Buddy Mattews, and Mysterio is engaged to Marie Juliette. While fans adore their on-screen pairing, it’s crucial to remember that these WWE superstars are committed to other partners in their personal lives.
Recently, Dominik Mysterio and his real-life fiancée, Marie Juliette, celebrated a significant milestone in their 12-year relationship. To commemorate this achievement, the couple shared an adorable video on Instagram. While this is a heartwarming moment for Mysterio and Juliette, fans who have grown fond of the kayfabe romance between Mysterio and Ripley might have mixed feelings about this revelation.
A Love That Defied Time and Distance
Dominik Mysterio and Marie Juliette’s relationship has defied the odds, considering they’ve been together for an impressive 12 years. They shared a charming throwback video, participating in the ‘we are… but we also were’ social media trend, which provides a glimpse into their long-lasting relationship. Remarkably, they’ve been together since the age of 14, proving that high school sweethearts can stand the test of time.

Their journey hasn’t been without challenges, but their love has triumphed over all the hurdles that life has thrown their way. When Mysterio embarked on his journey to become a professional wrestler, he had to leave his hometown and move to Tampa for training, creating a long-distance dynamic. During this period, Juliette was still focused on her education and couldn’t accompany him.

Mysterio opened up about the challenges of maintaining a long-distance relationship due to his extensive travel as a WWE star: “Man, it’s honestly pretty hard doing, I guess, what we would call long distance because I’m in so many places. She was kinda prepared for it in a way because when I started training just to become a wrestler, I moved to Tampa for six months, and she was still in school, so she couldn’t come with me,”
Long-distance relationships can indeed take a toll on couples, but Mysterio and Juliette have shown that, with effort and dedication, love can conquer all obstacles. They’ve worked hard to sustain and strengthen their relationship throughout the years.

While fans are gushing over the heartwarming video shared by Dominik Mysterio and Marie Juliette, it’s important to remember that ‘Mami’—Rhea Ripley’s kayfabe name in their WWE storyline—might have some playful reactions to the sight of her ‘Dom-Dom’ in another woman’s arms. All jokes aside, this milestone showcases the enduring love of a real-life couple, and fans can celebrate their dedication to each other.
