It’s sad when you really think about it because a wrestler’s career is deemed sometimes by the way their real-life girlfriend handles themselves while under WWE contract and shortly after they are released.
Now Lashley didn’t leave the WWE just because Krystal was released right? Some believe he did but Lashley has come out and said that he wanted to pursue a MMA career. A career which for the most part has fell flat, but this career changing move came right around the same time that his love interest was released from the WWE.

I remember when this happened, I couldn't understand why Jerry had to quit just because Kat was fired. Then again, I couldn't understand why the Kat was fired lol.

|Drew & Tiffany|
Drew McIntyre was deemed by Vince McMahon, on TV mind you, as “The Chosen One.” He was primed to be a top star and a future World Champion. He was even penciled in at one Wrestlemania to win “Money in the Bank,” a match that usually signs, seals & delivers a World Championship reign to whomever wins the match.
Unfortunately, in July 2009, Galloway proposed to Taryn Terrell, who is former on-screen WWE Diva Tiffany and reports of their intention to wed surfaced in January 2010 in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter. The couple married in Las Vegas in May 2010.

On 24 May 2011, Terrell announced that she and Galloway were divorcing. She would be released and Drew McIntyre is still paying for the sins of his wife in the wrestling ring. McIntyre hasn’t been in any type of storyline in almost a year on WWE television.
So to summarize, Drew was given a golden ticket, he was the "chosen one" but then he married Tiffany who apparently beat him up in a hotel and he had to call the cops on her and have her arrested and this lead to their divorce and her release from the company and for some reason the WWE has decided that this should cost him his career as well because it was his fault for marrying her?
Imagine where Drew McIntyre would be if his wife and now former WWE Diva didn’t get him in any type of trouble with the office. He very well could be where guys like Alberto Del Rio are as a former World Champion and in feuds of importance. Sad to see a talented wrestler is held back all because of who he marries in life, but so it goes I suppose.

|What An Entrance!|
It wasn’t like Melina went out on good terms either. She was tweeting incoherently, was at WWE events the weekend she was released and was even rumored to be pitching her entering the ring as a “shoot” to fellow divas. Things were not good in Melina land and they affected John Morrison’s world.
Sure love makes us do crazy things and Morrison was very outspoken about his girlfriend’s release which led to the entire decline down the WWE’s hierarchy. But it appeared that once word got out that Melina and John Morrison might have broken up did things start to change for JoMo.
So let this be a lesson to all you wrestlers out there...
stand behind your woman…
until she loses her job!
