Alexa Bliss and Ryan Cabrera were introduced by a mutual friend

If it hadn’t been for a certain friend of Bliss and Cabrera, the couple might not have ended up together. That mutual friend happened to be Bliss’ co-worker, The Miz. According to Comic Book, The Miz’s matchmaking began when he asked if Cabrera would be interested in a date with Bliss.

Cabrera got in contact with Bliss, and the two began chatting. After a while, the two meet at one of Cabrera’s concerts. Although Bliss was hesitant about dating a musician, Cabrera won her over. “He was very patient and persistent, and we became amazing friends. Ultimately it turned into an amazing relationship,” Bliss gushed about her fiancé. After a year of dating, Cabrera proposed to Bliss in November 2020.

Before meeting Cabrera, Bliss was engaged to another man, former WWE wrestler Buddy Murphy. Bliss and Murphy met in 2015 when they were working in WWE’s developmental territory NXT. The two began dating and were paired together on television when she served as a valet for Murphy and his tag partner Wesley Blake.

Bliss and Murphy became engaged in 2017; however, their relationship faced strain due to them being on different brands. The couple was featured on the reality series Total Divas, where Bliss seemed to avoid marriage talk when asked about Murphy. A year after announcing their engagement, Bliss and Murphy would split up in 2018. The break-up was amicable with two remaining friends. When Murphy was released by WWE earlier this year, Bliss tweeted her support for her ex.
