15 Hottest Wrestling Cougars Over 40 We’d “Cuddle” In A Heartbeat

The wrestling business has had no shortage of gorgeous ladies over the years. Both WCW and WWE have featured some of the most beautiful women to ever enter the ring. And that's not even mentioning the indie circuit and international promotions. Divas are an important part of the wrestling ecosystem. What would wrestling be without badass women kicking butt in the ring or flaunting their assets in bikini contests or mud matches? We dare not imagine a world in which women never entered the ring and showed us what they could do.

From electrifying superstars like Trish Stratus and Lita to wrestling greats such as Gail Kim and Victoria, many great female wrestlers have come and gone. They've retired whether due to age or injury, but many of them are still remembered as legends through the WWE Hall of Fame or just because we still watch replays of their greatest moments today. Some have even gone on to have other careers, whether it be as fitness gurus or... well, adult performers and cam girls. TheSportster has gone back and picked 15 of the greatest female wrestlers who are still in amazing shape and we'd love to see again... Perhaps even cuddle.

15 Trish Stratus

Trish Stratus (real name Patricia Anne Stratigeas) is one of the greatest WWE Divas to ever grace the ring. In fact, Trish was named Diva of the Decade for the 2000s and was Babe of the Year three years in a row, from 2001-2003. She even won the Women's Championship a record-breaking seven times. In 2013, Trish was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame.

She retired from wrestling in 2006 after almost seven years in the business, which is all the more impressive when you consider how much she accomplished in such a short time. Today, she has her own website where she gives her fans life and fitness advice. Trish also has two children, but she still looks great, too! You knew she had to be here, so we didn't waste time.

14 Lita

Lita (real name Amy Christine Dumas) was another very big diva in her day, with a wrestling career that could rival the legendary Trish Stratus'. She's a four-time Women's Champion and was named Woman of the Year by Pro Wrestling Illustrated in 2001. Lita is also the first woman, along with Trish, to headline the main event on Raw. When she wasn't duking it out with Trish, she worked as the valet for the Hardy Boyz. She even dated Matt Hardy in real life.

These days, Lita has a punk rock band called the Luchagors. She was also inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2014. Lita is truly a legend and still looks like she's in fighting shape! Her looks have clearly not regressed, so no reason not to have her here.

13 Sable

Sable (real name Rena Greek) was one of the biggest names in WWE's Attitude Era. When it comes to divas, you don't get much more legendary than Sable, who graced the ring with both attitude and sex appeal. Sable wasn't just about looks, though. She was also a champion, winning the Women's Championship once, and was named Diva of the Year by the WWE in 1997.

Throughout her career, she appeared on the cover of Playboy several times and is the first woman to be featured on two of the magazine's covers in the same year. These days, she's married to WWE superstar Brock Lesnar. They have two kids together and live in Saskatchewan, Canada. From this picture recently snapped of Sable, you can see she still looks beautiful after so many years away from public life.

12 Stephanie McMahon

You don't get much higher up the ladder than Stephanie McMahon, daughter of Vince McMahon and heiress of the WWE. When she's not calling the shots outside of the ring, Stephanie's in the ring duking it out with those who would dare oppose her. In fact, she's a one-time Women's Champion and even won the Hardcore Championship once.

Not that she's ever been a fan favorite. She's mostly played a villain onscreen, like her dad. She was voted Most Hated Wrestler of the Year both in 2013 and 2014 by Pro Wrestling Illustrated. Stephanie continues to be a big part of the WWE to this day, and there's every indication that she will one day be the big boss of the company, along with her brother, Shane.

11 Torrie Wilson

Torrie is one of the most beautiful women to ever grace the wrestling ring, whether it was as a valet or a wrestler (not that she was really known for the latter). This diva was best known for her sex appeal and naughty personality in the ring and backstage. She started her career at WCW before making the transition to the WWE. One of her earliest storylines at WWE was as Vince McMahon's mistress.

Her only big accomplishment during her time in wrestling was the Golden Thong Award in 2002, which you can pretty much guess how she won. These days, she's a guru for healthy living and runs her own fitness website where she gives her fans tips for staying in shape. You couldn't ask for a hotter trainer, if you ask us.

10 Major Gunns

via twitter.com

Even if  you didn't grow up watching WCW, you've probably heard of Tylene Buck aka Major Gunns, who has moved on from wrestling to become a pretty successful adult film star. Major Gunns was never really known for her skills in the ring, although she did feature in a couple of matches during her brief time in wrestling, including a mud match against Stacy Keibler.

She's best known as the valet for the Misfits in Action. One of her naughtier moments as their valet came when she mooned WCW president Eric Bischoff in the ring. That's not something you really see every day, but that just goes to show you that Major Gunns has always loved baring it all for an audience. She definitely hasn't grown shy.

9 Gail Kim

Good lighting is a girl's best friend! #FaceTheLight

A post shared by Gail Kim-Irvine (@gailkimitsme) on

Canadian wrestler Gail Kim certainly doesn't look 40. In fact, it doesn't really look like she's aged a year since her debut at WWE in 2002. Her first match in the big leagues still remains one of her greatest moments, debuting by winning the Women's Championship in a seven-woman battle royal match. It was clear from that moment that Gail was destined for great things. She eventually moved on to TNA, where she won the Knockouts Championship six times and the Knockouts Tag Team Championship once.

Until recently, Gail had been forced to stay out of the ring due to an injury. Just last month, she returned to GFW: Impact to announce her retirement at the end of the year. She will be sorely missed as one of the greats of female wrestling. We hope we've not seen the last of her.

8 Victoria

Victoria (real name Lisa Marie Varon) has always been in incredible shape. From participating in fitness competitions on ESPN to the Miss Galaxy competition, there's never been a time when Victoria didn't look good. She eventually decided to take her good looks to the ring after meeting the late, great superstar Chyna at a gym.

During her time at WWE, she won the Women's Championship twice and had a feud with Trish Stratus (who didn't?). Interestingly enough, she actually debuted as The Godfather's "head ho," before being betrayed when the wrestler joined Right to Censor. Victoria eventually moved on to TNA, where she won the Knockouts Championship five times. Just this April, she took a mirror pic on Instagram that proved that she's still in incredible shape.

7 Layla El

Layla El only recently turned 40, making her one of the youngest members on this list. She is also among the most beautiful. Despite the fact that not much is known about Layla since she left wrestling in 2015, it's hard to forget her reputation in the ring. She entered the WWE by winning the 2006 Diva Search competition and went on to win the Women's Championship once as well as the Divas Championship. She also participated in a Diva dance contest, which she was cheated out of winning by the Miz, whom she feuded with for a while.

Since leaving the ring, Layla has married fellow wrestler Richard Young. She's left the public eye in the last few years and doesn't really update her social media accounts.

6 Amy Weber

If you blinked, you probably missed Amy Marie Weber's wrestling days. She only spent one year at the WWE before deciding to pursue a career as an actress. She entered wrestling after appearing in the 2004 Diva Search. Amy was mostly known as a villain, serving John "Bradshaw" Layfield as his "image consultant." It was her job to repair his reputation after he suffered a particularly humiliating defeat. It wasn't the sexiest storyline.

Amy left the WWE due to allegations of sexual harassment. She's not been back to wrestling since. Today, she's a realtor (as you can see from the picture above) and she even released an album called Let It Rain, which saw some success. She had twins, Levi and Madison Grace, in 2009.

5 Kimberly Page

You probably remember Kimberly Page as the woman whose breast popped out of her top while speed dating Steve Carrell in The 40-Year-Old Virgin. But before that, she was one of WCW's biggest stars. She was married to Diamond Dallas Page for 14 years and worked closely with WCW president Eric Bischoff. Kimberly even founded the Nitro Girls, a dance troupe that would entertain the crowd during commercial breaks. It's safe to say that Kimberly was WCW's very own diva.

Her most famous feuds at WCW were with Miss Hancock and Miss Elizabeth. She eventually even betrayed DDP and became a villain, joining Bischoff's New Blood heel stable. She also appeared in several pictorials for Playboy and Penthouse. So you've probably seen quite a bit of her over the years.

4 Pamela Paulshock

Pamela Paulshock was not really known for her wrestling skills. Instead, she spent most of her time at WCW as a backstage interviewer and ring announcer. The fans also undoubtedly found her great to look at. Her biggest triumph in the ring came in 2000, just a year before the promotion merged with WWE, when she won a bikini contest. Pamela was so beautiful that she beat some of the promotion's sexiest divas, such as Torrie Wilson, Leia Meow, Chiquita, Major Gunns, Tygress, Chae, and Paisley.

She didn't return to wrestling after WCW closed down. Instead, she decided to retire from the business. Pamela made some guest appearances on the television shows The X-Files and Las Vegas. Not much has been going on with Pamela since, but we sure wish she'd return to our television screens.

3 Molly Holly

Nora Kristina Greenwald spent time at both WCW, where she wrestled as Miss Madness and later the blue cocktail dress-wearing Mona, and WWE, where she was known as Molly Holly. She wowed at both promotions as a capable wrestler who was as much brawn as she was looks. Not only that, but she saw a bit of success at the WWE. She won the Women's Championship twice and held the Hardcore Championship once. (She actually only held the latter title for an hour before Christian slammed a door in her face and took it from her.)

Since her retirement, Greenwald has gone on to become a born again Christian and has worked with teenagers recovering from addiction. She's not fully out of the ring, though. She's currently the lead coach at The Academy: School of Professional Wrestling.

2 Ivory

via wrestlingforum.com

Lisa Mary Moretti, better known as the wrestler Ivory, began her career in the women's wrestling promotion GLOW (Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling). If that sounds familiar, it's because Netflix just released a show about this wrestling promotion, starring Alison Brie. Moretti wrestled as Tina Ferrari in her GLOW days and even won the GLOW Championship at one point.

She made her debut at the WWE in 1999 under the name Ivory and enjoyed a very successful run with the promotion. Ivory went on to win the Women's Championship three times before retiring in 2006 after twenty years in the wrestling business. Since her wrestling days, Moretti has devoted her life to animals, working with them at animal shelters and helping animals who were affected by Hurricane Katrina. She now runs her own animal day care.

1 Midajah

Melinda Midajah McCullum, or simply "Midajah," only spent four years in the wrestling business, and she peaked early as a babely nWo girl at WCW. Despite the fact that she was a fitness trainer and model before her time at WCW, she didn't spend all that much time in the ring. Instead, she mostly acted as a valet for the nWo heels and later Scott Steiner, who had a whole group of "Freaks" who would accompany him to the ring.

During her time at World Wrestling All-Stars, Midajah did show a bit of skin, participating in a few bra and panties matches and an evening gown match. Midajah wasn't shy about showing off her wonderful assets and she's still in great shape to this day!
