Our Two Cents

Batting for Team DD this week, it’s Bobby giving us his personal opinion on this week’s topic:

Bobby: The greatest couple in wrestling history will definitely draw a lot of different views, but for me it’s about the couple I connected with the most. That, ladies and gentlemen, is the brilliant pairing of Jamie Noble and Nidia. They were everything I loved about wrestling for the years they were together, with their amazingly hilarious segments to their entrance. They played the white trash gimmick so well and I looked forward to seeing them all the time. I instantly drew to them as my highlight of television for a while! When she went blind and then shredded the mink coat he got her upon regaining her sight after they broke up, I almost had to sob myself to sleep. They will always live on to me as not only the best couple, but one of the best things to ever grace a TV screen period!

Your Two Cents

@gingermanpunk | The greatest couple was Chuck and Billy.
Josue Guzman | For me it has to be John Morrison and Melina. This couple is unlike any other we’ve ever seen. From the moment they met on the set of Tough Enough until their departure from WWE, this duo has always been a hot topic! They were part of the successful team known as MNM, created a signature entrance together but perhaps what sets them most apart from other couples is that they drew more heat outside the ring than they did inside the ring.

Moments like Morrison giving Trish Stratus the cold shoulder and the Batista/Melina affair started awful rumors and name calling that BOTH Morrison and Melina had to endure. Despite these controversial moments, the couple was able to hold their ground, defending one another whenever necessary, supported each other throughout their last years with WWE and that to me makes them a great couple.

Megan Travis | Though Edge and Lita were certainly great, Stephanie McMahon and Triple H set the stage for “power” couples, so they should get a mention as well.
@Miss_Diesel | Greatest couple in wrestling history? That is just easy for me to give the answer to. Miss Elizabeth and Randy Savage. When I think of a wrestling couple and one that made it alright for romance to be mixed in wrestling. She was gorgeous and he was crazy about her. I will always have that image of her perched on his shoulder after his IC title win. That is what a dream wrestling romance is to me.
Ozzy Valentine | I’m sure there are great power couples of the distant past, but as for the more recent ones. I’d have to go with Edge and Lita. No one anticipated such a pairing. Most of their careers they were enemies, but when they came together, they became a force to be reckoned with. Against all the odds (literally), they carved their way into the position of most powerful couple of their time, proving that even as most hated heels, they could still dominate their respective divisions alone, and the entire WWE together.

And now we turn it over to you…

What are your two cents on the debate? Who do you think is the greatest couple in wrestling history? Tell us in the comments…

    My vote goes to Beth Phoenix and Santino Marella which was Glameralla and lasted 9 months and was considered Raw ‘s Power Couple and provided some very unique situation/ MY vote as Wrestling Couples.

  • misschrissi7

    My fav couple are Lita & Matt Hardy. They went through a hell of a lot together. I also really liked Chyna & Eddie Guerrerro and the ultimate power couple Stephanie Mcmahon & HHH

  • WweLitafan4ever

    My favorite couple is Edge and Lita.
    They were awesome together,were great heels,entertaining,did stuff that other couples didn’t do,they were a power couple,they were compatible,worked great together,and had AMAZING chemistry. They were Rated R..indeed.

  • thejoshifanx

    If we’re talking real life, I would say Sara del Rey & Claudio Castagnoli since I heard they’re together.

    Other than that, I’m not a fan of any couples on screen haha.

  • shameronstar

    I know this might be a common opinion but HHH and Stephanie was AMAZING. They complemented each other perfectly because HHH was a power hungry, manipulative, ego manic and Stephanie was vindictive billion dollar vixen who used her connections to the wwe to get what ever she wanted and when she didn’t she usually got HHH to basically mercilessly beat down who ever stood in her way. Conversely his marriage to Stephanie automatically kept him relevant because her character in conjunction with his made HHH more interesting because Stephanie, as soon as she turned heel, didn’t need HHH to stay interesting because her in stints as Chris Jericho’s manager and owner of ecw and co-owner of the alliance along her brother Shane Stephanie still stayed interesting!

    Lita & Edge = Fav!
    Beth Phoenix & Santino = Funniest!
    Miss Elizabeth & Randy Savage = Best!
    Stephanie McMahon & Triple H = Overrated!
    AJ & Daniel Brian = Unnecessary!
    Chyna & Eddie Guerrero (R.I.P) = Oddest!

    • Jhonmarco

      Unnecessary? They’re a modern Lita & Matt.

      • norisclouds

        I think they have more in common with Randy Savage and Elizabeth. Bryan is a heel and AJ is a face protecting the heel.

        Lita and Matt were both faces together, he was her best friend who became her boyfriend.

  • StraightEdgeGirl84

    Edge and Lita without a doubt. I loved them both separately for years before but when they became a couple wow! I wish the Lita heel had gotten to be different in some ways but I think Amy did an amazing job. Edge finally broke through the glass ceiling and became this fantastic jerk of a character. A few years ago when Adam said that he couldn’t have done it without Amy made me so happy. He was giving her equal credit which she deserved. The chemistry between these two was so electric and natural. You just can’t force chemistry which is why more recent pairings haven’t worked.

    • norisclouds

      When you watched them together you felt like you were intruding on their private moments together. Very hot couple, excellent chemistry.

  • MrJCena

    trish stratus and christian were a great couple because it cemented trish as a heel.

  • GlamazonInTraining89

    TIE
    Macho Man Randy Savage & Miss Elizabeth

    Victoria & Stevie Richards

  • Lily

    I’m going to have to go with Chuck & Billy.

    • thejoshifanx

      Haha not my favorite but I like your choice

  • RayneWoman

    Vickie and Big Show….no, just kidding ; )

    Edge and Lita has to be number 1, because their chemistry was soooo awesome.
    Randy and Elizabeth comes next, because they were so cute. They were made for each other.
    Santino always brought out Beth’s never before seen funny side, which I loved.
    Trish Stratus and Jeff Hardy could have been one heck of a couple if WWE didn’t scrape the idea off.

    In TNA, hands down, the Jarretts. And I really want Madison Rayne and Austin Aries to become an on-screen couple. They could become bigger than the Jarretts if made possible, IMO.

    • LadyGoDiva

      WWE didn’t scrape it off I heard that Jeff Hardy failed a drug test and was fired.

      • norisclouds

        Yea–they gave him the choice of rehab, he refused and his contract wasn’t renewed. Jeff was a mess around that time, he was falling apart in matches and looking like a fool in the ring. It was obvious that he was on something, which is too bad.

  • redsandman99

    Macho Man and Miss Elizabeth (the original), Stephanie and Triple H (original power couple) and Edge and Lita (ultimate heel couple)

  • LadyGoDiva

    Edge & Lita were such the anti-Savage/Elizabeth maybe thats why I love them so much is because of that and all the great moments.

    Christian/Trish
    Chris Jericho/Trish

    I liked Jeff Hardy and Trish because you never thought that a guy like Jeff could get a girl like Trish and thats what I loved about it I hate that it was cut short. : (

    What I love about these couples is that when you match them together they had the right chemistry whether or not its in the ring or in a segment and I think thats what the WWE is missing. Is to have more WWE couples that have great chemistry with Bryan & Aj,etc.

  • candieaddiction

    Sad no TNA couples were mentioned.

    Jay Lethal and SoCal Val, ODB and Deaner, Robert Roode and Payton Banks, all great couples in TNA.

  • Raekon

    From the couples of the past I liked the following pairings the most:

    – Bam Bam Bigelow and Luna
    – HBK and Luna
    – Triple H and Chyna
    – Victoria and Stevie Richards
    – Ivory and Val Venis
    – Lita and Matt Hardy
    – Zack Ryder and Rosa Mendes
    – MNM (Morrison and Melina out of the trio)
    – R-Truth and Eve (even they weren’t romantically involved but still a great pairing)
    – Glamarela

    From the current ones I would like to see:

    – Maxine and Johnny Curtis (they match more than Batemax)
    – Eve and John Cena
    – Rosa and Primo (they seem to be going that direction since she kissed him on the cheeck at superstars last week ^_^ )
    – Kaitlyn and Justin Gabriel
    – Madison Rayne and Austin Aries (meeeeeeelt… I want him NOW! :p )
    – Natalya and Tyson Kid (like in real life)
    – Alberto and the Twins (Haha! Good one Nikki! Ikr? :p)
    – Mark Henry and Kharma (HALL OF PAIN FOR SURE BABE!)

    The ones I currently like:

    – AJ and Daniel

    – Batemax

    All times favorites: MNM and Zack & Rosa

  • _Bryan_

    Chyna and Triple H (heel)
    Chyna and Eddie (face)
    Lita and Edge (risque)

  • norisclouds

    Edge and Lita (phenomenal chemistry, sexy as hell, got the fans out of their seats)
    Triple H and Stephanie (great power couple, and she played her role as the bitchy rich girl perfectly and I completely believed his devotion to her)
