In honor of Valentine's Day, here’s a look at the top couples to come through Ring of Honor. Whether it was true love or a toxic relationship, these pairs all made or are making an impact.
5. PRINCE NANA & PRINCESS MIA YIM
The Ashanti prince from Ghana, West Africa brought Yim to ROH in 2011 and made her his princess in The Embassy. Nana spoiled Yim with lavish gifts, but his preoccupation with her proved to be his downfall. While Nana focused all of his attention on Yim, Barrister R.D. Evans pulled a coup and exiled Nana from his own creation. To further add to Nana’s humiliation, Yim turned down his marriage proposal.
4. BEST FRIENDS
Unlike the other couples on this list, the love between tag team partners Beretta and Chuckie T. is strictly platonic, but that doesn’t mean their bond is any less meaningful. In fact, theirs is a bromance for the ages. Case in point: They cannot get through a tag match without hugging each other. Regardless of what they may have going on in their dating lives, Beretta and Chuckie T. obviously live by the philosophy of pals before gals.
3. JIMMY JACOBS & LACEY
The relationship status of Jacobs and Lacey was the very definition of “it’s complicated.” After Lacey put Jacobs and BJ Whitmer together as Lacey’s Angels in 2005, Jacobs became obsessed with her. Despite Jacobs’ willingness to do anything to win Lacey’s heart, his love for her was unrequited for quite some time. Eventually, Lacey had a change of heart, but so did Jacobs. They continued to work together for a while, but, not surprisingly, things didn’t end well.
2. MICHAEL BENNETT & MARIA KANELLIS
Bennett and Kanellis’ first appearance as a couple in pro wrestling took place in ROH. Kanellis started accompanying her boyfriend and future husband Bennett to the ring in 2011, and she was not shy about getting involved in his matches. The couple went on to form The Kingdom with Adam Cole and Matt Hardy, with Matt Taven eventually joining the group. Kanellis led Bennett and Taven to the ROH World Tag Team and IWGP Heavyweight Tag Team titles.
1. CODY & BRANDI RHODES
Cody and Brandi are the unquestioned “it couple” in ROH. They’re both young, attractive and stars in their own right. With Brandi by his side, Cody won the ROH World Championship and signed the most lucrative contract in ROH history. Brandi, meanwhile, has made an impressive transition from wrestling ring announcer to Women of Honor competitor. In addition, Brandi is one of the stars of the E! Reality series “WAGS Atlanta.”
