Runnels married Terri Runnels (née Boatright), whom he met while they were both working for WCW.
They have a daughter, Dakota, who was born in 1994.
Dustin's strained relationship
with his father caused problems in their marriage, and Terri alleges that Dusty spread rumors about her that included infidelity
and "gold-digging." The couple divorced in 1999 after six years of marriage.
Years after the divorce, they were able to have a "better
relationship" for the sake of their daughter.
Dustin married his second wife, Milena, on December 18, 2002. They had been dating for 18 months
prior to the marriage.
Milena and Dustin have since divorced. He is once again engaged but it is unknown yet as to who his fiance is.
