The Divas Revolution has not only been a breath of fresh air for the WWE, it's also long overdue. Despite the fact Trish Stratus and Lita seemingly revamped the Women's Division during the tail end of the Attitude Era by proving themselves skilled in-ring performers and taking part in the first women's match main even of Raw, the company took a step backwards in its use of women once they both left. Divas/Women's Champions such as Beth Phoenix, AJ Lee, and others all had a decent amount of talent, but were hardly used correctly - if at all - by the company. The void felt similar to the company's lack of a Women's Division after Alundra Blayze left for WCW; for a two-year period, really until the arrival of Chyna, women had little to no presence in the WWE outside of being ringside eye-candy.
Several Divas came and went following the Attitude Era up until the Divas Revolution to the point where it's hard to really recall many of the women and their accomplishments. It's a shame for that era, but at least the company is finally realizing the strength and potential of its Women's Division. While the current women wrestlers are beautiful in their own right, Divas of the not-so-distant past (as well was others you might not have heard of yet) are looking better than ever.
Paige is one of the most interesting women to compete in the WWE in a long time. Though she didn't affirm to the stereotypical beauty standards of past WWE Divas, she's nonetheless an incredibly beautiful woman in her own right. The former NXT Women's Champion became the youngest ever WWE Divas Champion in 2014 when she defeated AJ Lee on the episode of Raw following WrestleMania.
14 Torrie Wilson
At the age of 42, Wilson is somehow in better shape today than she was back in her prime with the WWE. Torrie is leaner than ever before and if you don't believe us, just take a quick look at her Instagram account and you'll be baffled to see how stunning she still looks nowadays.
13 Kelly Kelly
It's been a while since Barbie Blank has blessed us with her presence on WWE programming as Kelly Kelly, but honestly, who could really forget the not-so-talented, but incredibly-hot blonde bombshell? The male Superstars of the WWE certainly couldn't, as Kelly has been linked to John Cena, CM Punk, and a host of other wrestlers. She recently settled down and married retired NHL defenseman Sheldon Souray, but the marriage lasted less than a year and she's now back on the market.
12 Michelle McCool
The inaugural WWE Divas Champion and former two-time WWE Women's Champion, Michelle McCool also earned Diva of the Year at the 2010 Slammy Awards. Her rise to prominence in the ring is rather unprecedented as she was once a middle school teacher before successfully auditioning for the Diva Search, only to work primarily as a manager before becoming the first Divas Champion two years later.
While the previously-mentioned women actually had a decent run in the WWE with title opportunities, Cameron is a Diva you might actually have trouble remembering, although the photo above should certainly jog your memory. The 30 year old is not only looking sexy, but bad ass while doing so. There's obviously a reason why she has nearly one million followers on Instagram despite having a forgettable stint in the WWE.
10 Maria Kanellis
Maria is actually currently signed to WWE, but you wouldn't know it if you regularly watch SmackDown Live. Despite being a member of that roster, she has been off screen for the past few months due to a rehab stint of her husband Mike Kanellis, who she was managing. It was big news when the company signed the two as Maria was once a big star in the company (okay, not really, but she was super hot and male fans adored her), but Mike's absence, coupled with the fact Maria is now 19 weeks pregnant, has stalled the little momentum they did have, which included a win over Sami Zayn.
Ashley Massaro came to the WWE as a result of its efforts to reinvigorate its Women's Division in 2005 through the Diva Search. She had the look and appeal of what the company wanted from its Divas (she later appeared in Playboy, which was almost expected among Divas at that point), but lasted only a couple of years before leaving the company in 2008 to look after her daughter, who was sick at the time. Her daughter is now 17 years old, if you needed a reason to feel incredibly old.
Debuting in the WWE as the manager of MNM, Melina went on to have a successful singles career as a three-time WWE Women's Champion and two-time Divas Champion, not to mention the fact she was ranked as the third-best female wrestler by Pro Wrestling Illustrated in 2009. Despite having been away from the WWE since 2011, she sporadically shows up on the independent circuit to this day.
7 Eva Marie
The recently-departed Eva Marie stood out in more ways than one during her time with the WWE. She was one of the more high-maintenance and troublesome women on the Total Divas cast, was one of the weaker in-ring workers in the company, but had incredible sex appeal thanks to her bright red hair that would probably look disastrous on just about any other Diva; instead, Marie pulled off the look quite well.
6 Gail Kim
Another shot from the #knockouts #impactwrestling photoshoot for the #KnockoutForces elements shoot. Check out shopTNA for all photos for sale and so much more!!! The next few weeks we have some sizzling shoots from the stunning Knockouts .... check it out! If anyone can tell me also how to repost photos with the caption please educate me. Since the repost app changed things, I haven't been able how to figure out reposting pics AND captions together.
If you're a fan of wrestling in general and not just the WWE, there's no way you've forgotten about Gail Kim as she recently competed in her final match with Impact Wrestling at Bound for Glory and won the Knockouts Championship. You can also attest to the fact that the 40 year old native of Toronto, Ontario is still one of the most talented in-ring workers outside of the WWE; she was the first female inducted into the TNA Hall of Fame in 2016 and is a former WWE Women's Champion.
You can try and deny it all you want, but the truth is there's nothing more sexy than a beautiful woman showing skin and eating a chicken wing, or in the case of former WWE Diva Kaitlyn, a slice of pizza. We're not kidding. The above photo has it all; it's endearing to men who want a woman to just hang out with and eat chicken wings, but it also highlights the sex appeal of not only Kaitlyn, but her friend Laurin Conlin, who, judging from other photos on her account, eats more than her fair share of Booty-O's.
You might be asking yourself, "Who the hell is Maxine, aside from one of the hottest women on this list?" Her real name is Karlee Perez and the 31 year old is actually best known for her work outside of the WWE as Catrina. She presently wrestles with Lucha Underground and also had a brief stint with TNA, but from 2009 to 2012 worked with WWE's development territories in FCW and NXT.
Lisa Marie Varon, better known to WWE fans as Victoria, is now 46 years old, but you'd never know it by looking at her. The beautiful and fit dark-haired babe recently divorced her husband of 21 years a couple of years ago and appears to be doing just fine on her own, even wrestling sporadically on the independent circuit. A two-time WWE Women's Champion and five-time TNA Women's Knockout Champion, Victoria spent nearly nine years with the WWE and four with TNA.
2 Summer Rae
Oh to be the crush of Danielle Moinet, better known as the WWE's Summer Rae. If that's her reaction to seeing her crush, imagine how she is when she really gets to know someone. The 33 year old was never really regarded for her in-ring abilities, but she provided some memorable moments throughout her career, including her 2013 debut when she appeared as Fandango's valet and dance partner as well as ... Okay, that was probably it. Let's be honest, she was a below-average in-ring performer and mediocre as a manager. It wasn't a surprise she was recently released by the WWE.
1 Trish Stratus
Walking into today like .... - My Canadian peeps - tune in today to @cbcthegoods at 2pmEST on @cbc! Non-Canadians... 🤔 lemme see what I can do to let y'all watch all the fun! #damngeoblock - Outfit: @marciano Makeup: me! 🙋🏼 + TV ready by CBC glam squad Hair: @hairbystavro24 (colour), styled by CBC glam squad . . . . . . #CBCLife #cbcthegoods #balayage #cohost #marciano #wave👋🏼
If you live in Canada, consider yourself lucky that you got to watch Trish Stratus back on TV where she rightfully belongs, even if it was only for a day; if you live outside of the country, keep an eye on CBC for future streaming opportunities if Trish ever returns to co-host The Goods. It's not the WWE, but it's great to see her back in the public eye in some capacity.
Arguably the greatest women's wrestler of all time in regard to talent, draw, and looks, Stratus is a seven-time WWE Women's Champion who currently resides in her hometown of Toronto, Ontario, where she operates a yoga studio and is a passionate community supporter; she recently earned a community service award from the Ontario Sports Hall of Fame. She's now 41 years old and has ditched the blonde hair, but is somehow even better looking.
