WWE Universe lovebirds get engaged at Extreme Rules 2016
WWE Universe members Steven Van Geldren and Kimberly Lockwood became engaged at WWE Extreme Rules 2016 Sunday night when Steven popped the question ... among the crowd inside Newark, N.J.’s Prudential Center! Shortly after Instagraming the proposal, WWE.com caught up with Van Geldren to see just how this magical moment came to be.
"Me and my girlfriend [Kimberly] met about two-and-a-half years ago through a mutual friend,” he explained. ”One night she was texting me and said, ’What are you doing?’ I’m like, “I’m watching Monday Night Raw,” and she was like, ‘Oh my God, so am I!’ We found out that we both had [WWE] in common, and once we started dating, we would watch Raw and SmackDown [every week]. She eventually moved in and we got WWE Network, which we’ve had since day one, so I figured [WWE Extreme Rules] would be a perfect opportunity [to propose]."
Van Geldren also revealed why he thought WWE Extreme Rules was the right place and time to pop the big question.
"We don’t have a lot of money, but we spent a pretty good amount on the [Extreme Rules] tickets and got floor seats,” he said. “I’ve been planning on proposing to her for a while; I just didn’t know when or where to do it. Then, once we got those tickets, I just knew it would be the perfect thing to do. It defines our relationship."
WWE wishes Steven and Kimberly all the best as they begin this exciting new chapter in their lives.
