The women of WWE have been making headlines recently for all the right reasons. The first ever Women's Royal Rumble match was announced this past week on Raw and is the latest in a long line of opportunities the women have been given to make history since the start of the Women's revolution in the company.
Despite the huge steps that the company have taken forward over the past few years, there will always be a reputation hanging over the women who make up the current roster because of the way the women who paved the way for them were originally seen. The image of the beautiful sidekick is a difficult one to shake, and isn't helped by the many women willing to fill that role.
That means that as much as these women are pushing to be seen as legitimate contenders inside the ring, the WWE Universe will always focus on stories of scandal that happen with the women backstage in the company. These women have tried hard to turn the reputation of the division around, but it appears as though something like this will always be in the back of the minds of the WWE Universe.
The following list looks at 10 women in WWE who have reputations for being notorious flirts backstage, as well as five other women who are seen as prudes because they have been able to avoid all rumours and scandal throughout their time in the company.
15 Flirt: Lana
Lana came to WWE back in 2013 and has since been seen as the valet of her husband Rusev. Lana has recently made the switch over to the world of wrestling and left her husband to team with Aiden Engish but has ended up becoming a valet for Tamina.
Lana is definitely not someone who would be considered a prude since she openly talks about her intimate life with Rusev in front of people to the extent where even Rusev tells her it isn't appropriate. Lana and Rusev were recently seen on Ride Along and the couple openly talked about the places where the couple had been intimate. Before she was married to Rusev, Lana was part of storylines with Dolph Ziggler and The Rock where she was forced to flirt with them. She seemed a little too comfortable with the angles.
14 Flirt: Alexa Bliss
Alexa Bliss is the current Raw Women's Champion and has climbed through the ranks in WWE over the past few years to be where she is right now. Alexa is currently engaged to her former stablemate Buddy Murphy but there were once rumours when Alexa was in NXT that the only reason she was pushed to the position she is currently in was because she was getting around backstage.
Alexa is beautiful and is definitely capable of flirting to get what she wants. It's something that has worked for her over the past few years and it's something that she is obviously OK with doing. If it's got her to where she is right now then she's obviously not going to change anytime soon.
13 Prude: Bayley
Even though Bayley was thought to have been flirting with Finn Balor for a while when the duo were the two main champions in NXT, it seems that Bayley herself isn't like that backstage. The former Raw Women's Champion is engaged to fellow wrestler Aaron Solow and hasn't been seen flirting much with any other male wrestler while she's been in WWE.
Bayley is one of few women in WWE who refuses to be part of the usual hot photo shoots that other women have traditionally taken part of and you'll be hard pressed to find a single photo of Bayley online in a bikini. The former NXT star knows that she is a role model to many of the younger generation of WWE fans, so she ensures that she is always seen in the best light.
12 Flirt: Nikki Bella
Nikki Bella is the longest reigning Divas Champion in WWE history, but whilst Nikki has been making waves in the ring, it seems that her personal life has been one of the biggest talking points. Nikki dated Dolph Ziggler up until 2012 when the couple broke up and Nikki started dating John Cena.
The couple publicly became engaged at WrestleMania 33 but it seems that even though Nikki is now a woman set to be married, she is still a notorious flirt. When it comes to WWE legends or anyone who Nikki was left to work with in her earlier career, the former Divas Champion would become a completely different person and her flirting was almost cringeworthy. Even on Total Bellas with her own brother, she is very open about her intimate life that makes the show tough to watch at times.
11 Flirt: Charlotte Flair
The current SmackDown Women's Champion had been married and divorced twice before she was promoted to the WWE's main roster. Her divorce from TNA star Bran was finalized back in 2015 and it seems that Charlotte was able to quickly move on to a physical relationship with Alberto Del Rio.
Charlotte is someone who has made history a number of times already over the past three years and continues to do so on a regular basis, but her issues with fellow female wrestler Paige were well publicized when it came to their backstage problems because of their link to Del Rio. Charlotte hasn't been linked to any other stars since this whole scandal, so it seems that she's learned her lesson and has decided that wrestling should be her main focus moving forward.
10 Prude: Natalya
Natalya is one of the best technical wrestlers that WWE has at the moment and someone who has been raised in the world of professional wrestling. Nattie has been in a relationship with her current husband Tyson Kidd ever since she was a teenager and admitted on Total Divas that she has never been with any other man and has never actually wanted to be.
Nattie doesn't even look at other men and gets awkward around the other female wrestlers when they start talking about the intimate details of their lives because she seems to be a little bit of a prude. Nattie is older than many of the other female wrestlers, so it makes sense that she is more private and conservative when it comes to her personal life.
9 Flirt: Maryse
Maryse may be married to The Miz, but she will always have a reputation as a notorious flirt because of the way that she came to the company and the people who she rubbed up to following the Diva Search so that she would be hired by WWE. Maryse's early years in the company are the ones where she was seen as the most flirtatious but she seems to have calmed down recently.
Maryse met her husband in WWE when the two were part of a storyline together and it is rumoured that Maryse at first thought she was too good for The Miz. Maryse is another one of those women who knows that she's beautiful and she uses it to her advantage whenever she can, which is probably one of her worse qualities.
8 Flirt: Maria Kanellis
Maria Kanellis came into WWE through the Diva Search and most of her persona in her early career was for her to flirt with many of the male wrestlers including John Cena and Carlito. Maria dated many stars when she was in the company at that time as well, including CM Punk and Cena.
Maria has since returned to WWE alongside her husband Mike Bennett earlier this year but it seems that she has been completely different this time around. When Maria was in Ring of Honor and TNA she was seen as one of the most notorious flirts both on and off screen but with the recent announcement that she is expecting her first child, Maria has seemingly calmed down a little and is now preparing herself to embrace motherhood.
7 Prude: Asuka
Asuka has been one of the most dominant female wrestlers in WWE over the past few years and is still undefeated. The Japanese star has focused on her wrestling career for most of her life, which is why she hasn't had much of a personal life outside of her career. Despite being in WWE now for almost three years, Asuka has never been linked with any other male wrestlers on the roster.
Asuka hasn't even been seen to flirt with another wrestler backstage and has always been focused on ensuring that she is remembered long after her career is over for all of the right reasons. Asuka is one of the most popular stars on the Raw roster right now and is seen as a role model as well. This is why she always ensures that she is seen in a good light.
6 Flirt: Mickie James
Mickie James is someone who has been involved in her own kind of scandals over the past few years and will always have the affair with John Cena hanging over her head, which was one of the main reasons why Mickie was released from WWE for the first time.
Mickie was in a relationship with Kenny Dykstra at the time and the couple eventually broke up. After Mickie was released from the company she went on to date fellow professional wrestler Magnus, who was part of the Impact Wrestling roster at the same time that she was. The couple then married and have since welcomed a child, so Mickie's flirting has calmed down a little, but she will never be able to get past the reputation she already has.
5 Flirt: Liv Morgan
Liv Morgan has recently been promoted to the main roster as part of The Riott Squad and currently performs as part of the SmackDown Live roster. Before Liv was promoted while still performing on the NXT brand, she was in a relationship with Cruiserweight Champion Enzo Amore.
Enzo Amore and Liv broke up earlier this year when it was revealed that Amore had cheated on his longtime partner and Liv decided to bounce straight back and try to start dating straight away. Morgan was seen flirting online with former United Kingdom Champion Tyler Bate before the couple then sent out a number of snapchats. Liv is clearly no longer worried about Enzo Amore and has since been able to push her career forward following the break down of her relationship.
4 Prude: Nia Jax
Nia Jax is a former NXT superstar and considered to be one of the most dominant female wrestlers in the company right now. Even though Nia is currently part of a storyline on-screen where she is seen attempting to flirt with Enzo Amore, it can be seen how awkward Nia looks when part of these segments. The could be because she isn't used to flirting.
Nia is in a relationship with fellow professional wrestler Josh Woods. Even though Nia has recently been added to the cast of Total Divas, she is the only woman on the show who's boyfriend isn't seen. Nia hasn't been seen flirting with anyone else on the show or even talking about her relationship in the first few episodes, which proves that Nia is definitely a different kind of female wrestler.
3 Flirt: Sasha Banks
Sasha Banks is one of the most popular female wrestlers in WWE right now and even though she married longtime partner Sarath Ton back in August 2016, she tried to hide the fact that she was married for a number of months afterwards. Sasha received a lot of negative attention when she was seen flirting online with fellow WWE superstar Seth Rollins last year because the WWE Universe was aware that she was married.
Sasha is one of the female wrestlers that was supposedly told to always act as though she is available when it comes to the WWE Universe, which could be the reason for this, but since her husband actually works for the company as well, it's not exactly the best way for the young couple to start their marriage.
2 Flirt: Paige
Paige hasn't had the best year when it comes to her personal life, but it seems that even that won't stop Paige from being a notorious flirt. As well as being known to be in relationships with Brad Maddox and Alberto Del Rio, it seems that Paige has flirted with a number of stars backstage in her career including Big E, in a scene that was part of Total Divas.
Paige has been in the business since she was 13-years-old when the women in the company were represented differently than they are right now, which could be why Paige thinks that this kind of behaviour is acceptable backstage. Recently it seems that Paige has calmed down a little since she has had quite a tough year which could be a good sign.
1 Prude: Tamina
Tamina is one of only a handful of female wrestlers who have been able to juggle being a mother with a long-term career, but Tamina and her husband divorced almost 15 years ago and she hasn't been seen in a relationship since. Tamina is a very private person though, so she could have just decided to keep her personal life out of the public eye.
Tamina is part of one of the most famous wrestling families that the company has ever created, but much like Natalya, Tamina has the mentality where she only focuses on her in-ring career. The SmackDown star has a number of family members in the WWE locker room, so she's probably much happier keeping her personal life away from her family so that it's less awkward.
