WWE superstars live extremely busy lives. In a regular week, wrestlers are expected to make time for television tapings, house shows, fan signings, and media appearances to promote the promotion and upcoming events. Outside of wrestling, many wrestlers also have side businesses that also eat up a lot of time. Due to the fact that wrestling is predominantly a traveling show, wrestlers also spend a lot of time moving between cities, which is now turned into material for the WWE Network in Ride Along. In the middle of all this, many WWE superstars have families and children that they often rarely see. Due to their busy schedule, WWE wrestlers are usually expected to be on the road over 300 days a year. As a result, many wrestlers date other wrestlers because it’s easier to be a part of the same road schedule as opposed to having a relationship with someone who can’t always move around to fit the wrestler’s lifestyle. Even more amazing is that many wrestlers maintain insane schedules at the same time as trying to raise children.
