Besides, since her divorce from her ex-husband Michaels, Theresa has, however, remained quite confidential when it comes to her professional and personal life. So, here we are to find out some unexplored facts about her, including her childhood details, family background, and more.

Let’s get started!

How old is Theresa Lynn Wood? Details on Her Early Life

As of 2022, her age is 52. She was born in 1969, about four years after her then-husband was born. A little known about her family is that Theresa is the daughter of mother Joan.

Born and raised in San Antonio, Texas, Wood also completed her high schooling at her hometown school. For her ethnic background, she is Caucasian and is an American as per her nationality.

Theresa and Her Former Husband Michaels Knew Each Other From Their Early Days

Shawn was born in Chandler, Arizona, but he grew up in San Antonio, where he met his future sweetheart Theresa. He explained in his book called, Heartbreak & Triumph: The Shawn Michaels Story (released in 2005) that their families were also friends.

Although they were well familiar with each other from their childhood, they didn’t have such feelings for a long time. Things started only after Shawn, the then-20-year-old boy was working in San Antonio. He used to work seven days a week and was kind of bored at the time because of his hectic working schedule.

Later on, Shawn told his mother about his desire to have a girlfriend. And his mom asked him, what if he dates a Wood girl, Theresa. The last time Shawn saw Theresa was two years before when she was just a 14-year-old high school girl.

Despite their huge communication gap, Michaels soon contacted her and they started going on movie dates. Michaels also recalled how did they go to watch movies in his abovementioned publication,

“Theresa would come to shows with me, but I never brought her in the back. No one brought their girlfriends backstage in those days, so she sat out in the arena before and during the shows. She didn’t mind. She was pretty enthralled with me. I was quite a cath for a high school girl; and, I was thrilled to be with her. She was a sweet young lady, a terrific girl.”

Shawn Surprised Her With a Diamond Ring As a Gift

Although it was just two weeks since Theresa and Shawn started dating, the then-budding wrestler gave her a diamond ring as a Christmas gift. He wrote in his book, “She cried when she got it.”

It was actually his mother’s plan to give her a diamond ring. He said in his book that his mom gushed at the time,

“Oh my goodness, they were engaged!”

But, Shawn really didn’t know giving someone the diamond ring meant they got engaged. He said in his book,

“I honestly didn’t know you only bought someone a diamond ring when you planned on getting engaged.”

After some time, Shawn began his wrestling career. Although both of them belonged to two different worlds, they would often visit each other even then after.

Despite their early growing romance, the duo later faced some ups and downs in their relationship. They also did break-up talks a couple of times. But, luckily, nothing bad could happen between the two at the time. They then officially engaged and also were married for years.

To celebrate their honeymoon, the newlyweds went to the Caribbean, a region of the Americas that consists of the Caribbean Sea. There, they had good times for a couple of weeks and then Shawn returned to the World Wrestling Federation.
