There’s no question that some of the most beautiful women in the world are drawn to the business we know as professional wrestling. There are some who are life-long fans, that spend their entire childhood dreaming of becoming WWE superstars. That being said, there are also more than a few who hoped to use the fame they acquired from wrestling to become actresses, models, or even reality TV stars. It’s a tough business that requires constant travel and time away from family and loved ones. However, there is little doubt that wrestling fans are very glad these 15 beauties decided to make that sacrifice. While these women come from a variety backgrounds and share vastly different life experiences they all have one thing in common and that is a gorgeous head of blonde hair.
There is an old saying that “Gentlemen prefer blondes.” If this is true, these lovely ladies listed would seem to suggest that the Gentlemen out there really know what they’re talking about. There are more than a few champions who made the top 15. In fact, many of the most successful women in the sport happen to be blondes, which may not be a coincidence. Don’t worry, I’m not going to keep you in suspense any longer, so let’s get started.
15. Alexa Bliss
After being somewhat lost in the shuffle during her time in WWE’s developmental promotion NXT, Bliss has made quite a name for herself since arriving on Smackdown. When she debuted on Smackdown with her new Harley Quinn persona, comic book fans around the world could feel their hearts pounding. She even went on to defeat Becky Lynch and become the Smackdown Women’s Champion. Though she recently lost her title to Namoi at The Elimination Chamber pay-per-view, she has solidified her status as one of the top female acts on the current roster. The 5 foot 1 blonde from Columbus, Ohio has a bright future ahead of her. I’m sure there are more than a few guys out there who look forward to watching her career unfold.
14. Michelle McCool
McCool is actually a former teacher who taught 7th-grade science in her home state of Florida. If the hit Van Halen song “Hot For Teacher” immediately pops into your head, you probably aren’t alone. WWE even incorporated her background in education, when they had her portray a sexy teacher during the early part of her career. McCool would go on to have quite a run in the WWE. She was the first ever WWE Divas Champion and is a four-time world title holder in the women’s division. You may have also heard of her husband the nearly 7 foot tall WWE legend know as the Undertaker. As hot as she may be, this may be a not be the lady you want to practice your pick up lines on, or you may find yourself on the wrong end of a tombstone piledriver, courtesy of The Undertaker.
13. Maryse Ouellet
Recent fans of the WWE probably best know Ouellet as the wife of self-proclaimed A-lister, The Miz. However, prior to becoming her husbands on screen manager, the stunning French Canadian had a solid wrestling career of her own. Ouellet won the WWE Divas Championship on two separate occasions. She was the former Miss Hawaiian Tropic Canada in 2003 and was also a former cover girl for Playboy magazine. She is currently a cast member on the E television series Total Divas, alongside other WWE starlets. Oh and I almost forgot to mention she appeared in the Sci-Fi cult classic Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No! When comes to describing Maryse, as her husband would say, she truly is “awesome.”
The former Homecoming Queen and Mrs. Texas USA pageant winner certainly made her mark in WWE. She became WWF Women’s Champion by beating Sable in an evening gown match. Despite the fact that Debra initially lost the bout, the then WWE commissioner Shawn Micheals reversed the decision and awarded Debra the title. Durning her time with the company Debra was known as southern belle with ample bosoms, which commentator Jerry Lawler often referred to as the puppies. The busty native of Tuscaloosa, Alabama often wore low cut skirts with a top that accentuated her her chest. Debra was a true southern charmer who is remembered fondly by fans of WWE’s attitude era.
Despite being born in the United Stares, Lana Portray’s a sexy Russian on screen, who helps here her real life husband Rusev gain the upper hand in the squared circle. She did, however, spend several years of her childhood Latvian SSR where she trained to become a ballet dancer. Lana, who’s real name is Catherine Perry also had a brief stint as a pop singer for the all-female group No Means Yes. When recounting her audition for the group she stated “A girlfriend of mine in college referred me to the man that was putting the group together. I honestly was so scared to sing and I didn’t even know a song to sing at the audition so I sang “Jesus Loves Me”. I remember them saying “we can work with her tone because she has the right look and she is a model that break dances”. Truthfully, it hard to imagine anything she wouldn’t have “the right look” for.
10. Charlotte Flair
Being the daughter of the legendary Nature Boy Ric Flair, Charlotte had some rather large footsteps to follow in. That being said, the current Raw Women’s Champion has thus far lived up to the hype. She’s become a 4-time champion and the first women to main event a WWE pay-per-view. By the time it’s all said and done, Charlotte Flair may very well be the greatest female wrestler of all time. It seems like Charlotte is such a great wrestler that it’s easy to forget she’s also a pretty hot. At nearly 6 feet tall, the 2nd generation star is always in peak physical condition. In fact, she even appeared in the January 2016 edition of Muscle and Fitness magazine. Flair is fortunate enough to be a great worker in the ring and great beauty outside of it.
9. Molly Holly
While she wasn’t a blonde for her entire run in WWE, Holly certainly deserves to be mentioned. In an era when female wrestlers were often involved in storylines that involved sexual themes, the more conservative Holly opted to go a different route. She would go on to make a name for herself as an outstanding performer inside the ring.Holly may have been a much bigger star in WWE’s current women’s division, where there is greater emphasis on actual wrestling ability, but we’ll never know for certain. She won the women’s title twice and even briefly held the defunct WWE Hardcore Championship. Also, her early pictures in WWE, when she debuted as Blonde, were nothing short of breathtaking.
Though Sunny has had here share of issues since leaving WWE, fans who watched her growing up no doubt remember her fondly. In her prime Sunny was easily one best-looking women to ever set foot in a WWE ring. She was even America Online’s most downloaded female in 1996, back when folks used dial-up internet service. It is rumored that she was offered six figures to pose for Playboy, back in the late 90’s, an offer which she declined. Sunny is considered by many wrestling fans to be the original WWE diva. She would go to be inducted into the Hall of Fame as part of the Class of 2011. Sunny will go down as one of the sexiest wrestling vixens of the late 90’s.
7. The Kat
The Kat is probably best known for exposing her breasts during the 1999 pay-per-view Armageddon. At the time many wrestling fans were wondering if the incident was staged or if she had gone off script. It would turn out the incident was indeed staged.
The Kat was able to get pretty far on her looks. In fact, she was even allowed to hold the women’s title, despite never being formally trained as a pro wrestler. She was such a looker, she even caught the eye of color commentator Jerry Lawler, who helped her get into the business. The two were even married for a brief period in the early 2000’s. Today The Kat who’s real name is Stacy Carter, has been largely forgotten and almost never referenced on WWE television. An attractive woman in her day, Carter wasn’t afraid to put it all out there for the fans.
You know you’ve got it going on when you a file $110 million dollar lawsuit against a company and they still invite you back. This is exactly what happened to Sable, one of the original WWE divas. She is the only woman to be featured on the cover of Playboy twice in the same year and posed for the magazine 3 times. Fans may not remember that Sable actually debuted at WrestleMania XII when she escorted Hunter Hearst Helmsley (Triple H) to the ring in 1996. From there she would go onto Sable bomb her way into the hearts of millions of fans across the globe. She was even able to capture the attention of current husband and everyone’s favorite beast incarnate Brock Lesnar. There is no denying that Sable in one of the finest women from the attitude era.
5. Torrie Wilson
The former Miss Galaxy’s looks are truly out of this world. At age 41, the Playboy model and FHM cover girl still looks amazing. Wilson was involved in many sexually based storyline during her WWE tenure, but she still managed to stay with the company long after WWE’s adult oriented attitude era ended. It’s no surprise that they would want to keep this gorgeous Idaho native around. Arguably, her most memorable storyline was her feud with Dawn Marie. The feud featured Marie marrying Wilson’s father and giving him a heart attack following multiple romantic encounters. Yeah. You got to love WWE storylines in the early 2000’s.
Wilson gained mainstream publicity when she dated former baseball superstar Alex Rodriguez. The two were an item for nearly 4 years before calling it quits in 2015. I’m sure there were plenty of eligible bachelors waiting in line following the break-up.
4. Kelly Kelly
At just 19 years of age, Kelly Kelly was the youngest diva on the roster when she debuted in 2006. The teen from Jacksonville, Florida had a very interesting start to her WWE career. When WWE decided to do their own version of an ECW reboot, Kelly was featured as part of a Kelly’s expose. This expose was basically a PG-13 rated striptease, which no doubt appealed to WWE’s largely male audience. The striptease was often interrupted by her on-screen boyfriend Mike Knox, who would force her to put her close back on, much to the audience’s displeasure. Kelly would go to be moved to Monday Night Raw where she would debut as an in-ring competitor and even held the title for a brief period. Kelly was arguably the hottest female in wrestling during her run. She is still just 30 years of age and looks to be in great shape. I’m sure there is no shortage of fans who would love to see a little more of Kelly Kelly, should she ever decide to return.
Many fans may also know Tiffany as Taryn Terrell from her time in TNA. She is probably best remembered by WWE fans for being the on-screen general manager of ECW from 2008 to 2010. Tiffany was also featured in several special editions of Playboy including an edition entitled “Big Boobs, Hot Buns”, you can probably guess why she was featured.When the blonde bombshell first discovered wrestling she recalled thinking”I was like OMG this what I wanted to do I figured out what I wanted to do for the rest of my life. I was so excited, there was this perfect hybrid of athleticism and beauty as a women wrestler.” It’s great to see that Tiffany was able to achieve her dream. Honestly, it’s great to see Tiffany, period.
2. Trish Stratus
A strong argument can be made that Stratus is the greatest female wrestler of the modern era. She started out as a manager and eventually went on the become one of the first women to main event Monday Night Raw. She has inspired many women on this list, like Alexa Bliss, Kelly Kelly, and Tiffany, to enter the world of professional wrestling. Stratus went on to be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame as part of the class of 2013. To learn more about the legendary diva check out 7 Photos Of Trish Stratus They Want You To See And 8 They Don’t, it’s definitely worth a read.
1. Stacy Keibler
It’s quite possible that Stacy Keibler may be the most beautiful women to ever set foot inside a wrestling ring, and that’s really saying something. Keibler actually got her start in wrestling by winning a contest to become of member of WCW’s all female dance squad the Nitro girls. Her tall slender physique would go on to capture the attention of lovestruck wrestling fans everywhere. Keibler’s signature long legs prompted Dancing With The Star Judge Bruno Tonioli to refer to her as “The Weapon of Mass Seduction.” It’s easy to see how she sparked the interest of her former boyfriend and Hollywood film star George Clooney. It’s impossible to have a discussion about the hottest women in wrestling without Keibler’s name coming up.
