Redditor eLetoR has shared this photo of himself wrestling with Randy Savage. Apparently the Macho Man himself used to date eLetoR's sister back in the '90s. The worst part about this is that when the kid told his friends at school, there's no way anybody would have believed him.

Henry "The Fonz" Winkler

Nobody likes having to live up to their partner's ex-partners, but Redditor UberStone must have it particularly rough. His wife previously dated Henry Winkler, better known as The Fonz from "Happy Days." Once upon a time, this guy was the coolest man on Earth, so presumably UberStone must have a pretty robust self-esteem.

Woody Harrelson

Twitter user @joaniemarie123's mom once dated Woody Harrelson. It's weird how he looks so much like a used car salesman in this era of his life.
