Gino V wrote (April 2010): Noel Harlow is dating Big Vito Lograsso (from WCW and WWE). They’ve been together almost a year according to Vito (I asked him in March). Noel had a big pink diamond and white diamond ring on her “engagement” finger on March 27th in New Jersey at ISPW,when Vito defeated Danny Doring with her by his side ,but I can’t confirm they are engaged. When I asked they just laughed and looked at each other.
