The WWE has employed its fair share of gorgeous divas over the years. There are divas such as Sasha Banks, Becky Lynch and Trish Stratus who have proven to be more than just a pretty face, as they’ve captivated viewers with not just their looks but their in-ring ability, as well. On the other hand, there are divas such as Eva Marie, Kelly Kelly and Sunny who have only been employed based on their alluring looks. These divas have had the privilege of having their in-ring ability overlooked.
However, what all of these divas have in common is that WWE hasn’t gone out of their way to pretend they don’t exist (well, they probably wish they could pretend Sunny didn’t exist, as she consistently finds herself in the tabloids for all the wrong reasons). Only the most forgettable and irrelevant divas have been written out of the history books of the company.
Here, we take a look at 20 gorgeous former divas the WWE pretends don’t exist.
20. AJ Lee
CM Punk is persona non grata and AJ Lee is guilty by association as she is the spouse of the former Nexus leader. Lee holds the WWE record (along with Eve Torres) with the most title reigns as WWE Divas Champion with three and holds the record for the longest tenure with the belt at 406 days. However, despite Lee’s dominance at the top of the Divas division, her accolades are scarcely brought up by the WWE. She’s also a former Raw GM that WWE would like to wipe from its history. Lee’s only twenty-nine years old and fans would welcome her back with open arms. However, with her husband CM Punk emrboiled in a long standing feud with WWE, don’t expect Lee to be back anytime soon.
19. Amy Weber
Amy Weber was first introduced to WWE as a part of its Diva Search in 2004. Weber was amongst the finalists, however, she didn’t end up winning the competition as she placed forth overall behind the winner Christy Hemme, Carmella DeCesare and Joy Giovanni. Weber by way of Mapleton, Illinois still found herself with a WWE contract and was placed in JBL’s Cabinet stable. Weber portrayed the gimmick of JBL’s image consultant for less than a year. Weber only had one televised matchup against fellow Diva Search competitor, Giovanni. In February 2005 Weber resigned from the WWE as she was dissatisfied with the pay and alleged that she had been harassed by a number of the wrestlers. It’s not a surprise for the WWE to not mention Weber based on her sexual harassment claims.
18. Jamie Keyes
Jamie Keyes appeared in NXT’s Season 3 competition. Prior to participating, Keyes had an appearance in TNA as Kevin Nash’s valet during the 2009 Final Resolution PPV. The following year Keyes had an opportunity to work for NXT as she debuted in the role of ring announcer in June of 2010. In the NXT Season 3 competition, Keyes faced off against the likes of AJ Lee, Aksana, Kaitlyn and Naomi. Keyes, like the rest of the participants, took part in some terrible competitions which included a bull riding contest and a wheelbarrow challenge. Keyes was eliminated from the competition on October 5th, 2010, just short of a month after the competition began. Eight days later, Keyes was released from her WWE contract. Keyes had one of the shortest careers in WWE history, and as a result, it isn’t hard to forget who she was.
When wrestling fans hear the name Tori the majority of them are prone to think of Alex Rodriguez’s former flame, Torrie Wilson. However, Tori was a part of WWE before Wilson was. Tori first appeared in WWE in 1998 in a gimmick that resembled that of Mickie James’ debut years down the road. Tori, like James was a crazed obsessed fan, albeit with Sable and not Trish Stratus. Tori also appeared in a storyline as the onscreen girlfriend of Kane. Tori is likely best remembered by most as being X-Pac’s girlfriend and being a part of the D-Generation X stable. She also took part in WWE’s first ever women’s hardcore match against Ivory. In 2001, Tori was released from her WWE contract. She currently works as a yogini in her birthplace of Portland, Oregon where she runs her own studio.
16. Carmella DeCesare
Before the WWE was introduced to the “Princes of Staten Island”, Carmella, there was another Carmella within the WWE ranks. This Carmella came in second place in the 2004 Diva Search competition as she fell short to the fiery redhead, Christy Hemme. Carmella still ended up signing with WWE despite not winning the competition and she participated in an unmemorable feud with the competition’s winner, Hemme. Carmella was released shortly after her feud with Hemme. She has had success in modeling as she was named Playboy’s Miss April in 2003, appeared in Playboy’s Playmates at Play swimsuit calendar in March of 2005 and appeared in the 2008 Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue. She is a mother of four and married to former NFL Quarterback, Jeff Garcia.
