WCW’s legendary legacy has yet to be forgotten in the pro wrestling world and it will likely live on forever. The company emerged as the only threat to WWE in the mainstream and gave wrestling fans an era of unforgettable moments. After the company eventually was bought out by WWE, WCW no longer existed and the wrestling industry has suffered for it. WCW did a lot of things great but it was never known for featuring female performers very well. WWE has had its issues as well with their portrayal of women but they at least offered more opportunities for the talent.
The history of WCW would see very few women get hired and even less put in a position to wrestle actual matches. Women would be hired to play valets with the hopes of making up for whatever the male performers lacked. The top valets were Miss Elizabeth, Woman and Kimberly Page. Each woman was utilized in storylines with their looks and on-screen presence adding to the act of various wrestlers. A couple of women would be hired for the same intention but fail with the main example being Tammy “Sunny” Sytch proving unable to adapt to the WCW change from WWE.
The latter years of WCW saw more women getting hired as a reaction to the female stars being made in WWE during The Attitude Era. WCW would hire women solely for their looks in segments that featured them showcasing their physical attributes rather than wrestling competitive matches like we see today. The company had its fair share of memorable women but most of them got lost in the shuffle. We’ll look at them all to see what paths they have taken following the demise of WCW and what they are doing these days. These are the top fifteen “Where Are They Now” stories for past female wrestling stars from WCW.
15 Missy Hyatt
11 April Hunter
10 Miss Madness
6 Major Gunns
3 Torrie Wilson
2 Kimberly Page
1 Stacy Keibler
The most storied female performer that came from WCW has to be Stacy Keibler. The stunning beauty was instantly a star on television due to her look and star presence as Miss Hancock. WCW would place her in silly storylines but it didn’t hinder her popularity and it only grew once WWE picked her up after buying WCW. Keibler became one of the biggest female wrestling names for the company and was marketed as such until her retirement from the business. She went on to achieve notoriety in Hollywood by appearing on Dancing with the Stars, getting a few acting gigs and dating George Clooney for a couple of years. Keibler has since married a longtime friend and is now a full-time mother while stepping away from the spotlight for the first time since her WCW days.
