WWE's Carmella and Corey Graves get married

The couple announced their engagement in October 2021.


WWE's Carmella and Corey Graves were married Thursday in a ceremony in Florida. 

A slew of wrestling personalities were in attendance for the event, posting photos from the festivities on social media. 

Carmella (Leah Van Dale), 34, and Graves (Matthew Polinsky), 38, announced their engagement last October. The two began dating in 2019. 

AEW's Jon Moxley, Renee Paquette, WWE's Natalya, TJ Wilson, Tamina, Bayley, Liv Morgan, Sonya Deville, Happy Corbin, and referee Jason Ayers are among the wrestling notables pictured in photos from the event. 

Carmella and Graves' relationship has been incorporated into recent WWE storylines, tying into the release of their Corey & Carmella YouTube series. The two also host the Bare With Us podcast.

Graves has been with WWE since signing a developmental deal in 2011. Graves and Adrian Neville held the NXT Tag Team titles in 2013. He transitioned to a commentary role in 2014 after being medically disqualified from in-ring work, although he has since been cleared for an in-ring return, though he says that one is not imminent. He also briefly held the WWE 24/7 title in 2021.

Carmella signed with WWE in 2013. After a run in NXT, she was called up to the SmackDown brand in 2016. She has since held the Money in the Bank briefcase, the SmackDown Women's Championship, WWE Women's Tag Team Championship, won Season 2 of WWE Mixed Match Challenge, and has held the 24/7 Championship twice.
