The research that was done in order for this piece to be written was extremely extensive and done with the intent of professional journalism. With that disclaimer out of the way we can get on to the good stuff (mostly). For as much as today's version of the WWE is pure and mostly wholesome, there has been a few modern day female Superstars who have had pics (and even videos) of them in their birthday suits.
Now to be fair to these ladies, somehow, someway, some of them appear on the worldwide web as a result of photo leaks and hacks. To that the question becomes, why the heck did you take a compromising photo with your phone? Like seriously, do you not think that at some point somebody would see these? Lucky for us! For others on this list, they took what some will consider the more tasteful approach and posed for the man, the myth, the legend, Mr. Hugh Hefner.
Whatever their reason, whatever the method, for warmblooded fans who enjoy the beauty that is the female body, the following fifteen lovely ladies have exposed all their goodness to the world. Now for those who think we'll be posting those pics, sorry, it's a family site, but trust in the fact that they are out there!
15 Paige - Leaked Images
She was anti Divas Revolution, but Paige may have taken things a bit too far when she "devalued" the NXT belt. Instead of leading the new breed of talent in the ring, Paige was the leader of the group of current WWE stars who have had their personal lives impacted by cyber hackers.
Fans were given a front row seat for a number of photos and videos staring the former champion and a number of other wrestlers, including some unexpected faces like Xavier Woods. Considering the number of chances that Hulk Hogan, Jeff Hardy and Randy Orton have had throughout their careers, this doesn't necessarily mean the writing is on the wall for Paige's hopes of returning to the WWE's squared circle.
14 Torrie Wilson
For nearly a decade, Wilson may have been the sexiest woman in wrestling. Whether it was during her time as valet/manager/boyfriend in WCW or throughout her career with the WWE, Wilson made heads turn. Never to be confused with a talented wrestler, Wilson more than made up for her inability to perform in the ring physically by performing physically with her God (hmm, some parts questionable) given gifts.
From lingerie matches to evening gown matches to horrible storylines with Dawn Marie, Wilson was highlighted sensually throughout her wrestling career. If those matches didn't capture your attention, than maybe one of, if not both her Playboy issues will be more to your liking. Oh, did we mention that one of them featured a team up with Sable? Thought that would get the blood flowing!
She may have had the biggest... glutes and the biggest... biceps in Playboy history, but there was once a point in which Joanie Laurer was actually attractive. Then came the crash heard around the world. With a slew of emotional and mental health issues along with a number of addictions to various substances, Laurer unfortunately took a turn for the worst. While Playboy was seen as tasteful, her venture into the world of adult films, be it home movies or parody films was the sad beginning of the end for the Ninth Wonder Of The World.
Unfortunately for the deceased former Intercontinental Champion (yes, the only female to hold the title, not just once but twice!) and Women's Champion, she is remembered more for her sad turmoil outside of the ring than her successes inside of it. Hence her absence from the WWE Hall of Fame.
12 Mickie James
Back in 2002, before she made it to the bright lights of the mainstream wrestling circuit, James found herself running through the Independent circuit and as many know, the money for newcomers with little backing to their name is hardly enough to put a box of Kraft Dinner on your table. So what's a girl to do? Well for the Richmond, Virginia native, the decision, one which she is no doubt regretting to this day was a venture into adult magazines and photo spreads.
Fortunately for James, this was not a career decision as she quickly signed with TNA and then had her first go-round with the WWE. With numerous championship titles on her resume over the past eighteen years, James is lucky her name is more known more for her accomplishments in the ring than out of it.
11 Brooke Tessmacher
Known mainly for her work with TNA, Brooke Tessmacher has been the object of desire of many warmblooded wrestling fans since she arrived on television over a decade ago as part of the Extreme Expose group in ECW. The three-time Knockouts Champion certainly isn't a stranger to displaying her God given (or maybe surgically enhanced) talents for all to see. Whether it was bikini matches, lingerie matches or scantily clad seductive dances, Brooke knew how to make herself a fan favorite! With one of the best booties in the business, Tessmacher's Asstastic stinkface move was well appreciated by TNA/Impact Wrestling fans.
For those looking for a bit more Brooke, a video shoot titled Bikini Destinations: Triple Fantasy will give you an extreme expose at one of the hottest bodies to hit the squared circle.
Her ring entrances have been well documented and equally well appreciated, but for the former multi-time WWE Women's Champion and Divas Champion, her hacked photos feature explicit images and positions. In terms of "Not So PG" leaked content, this hack certainly fit the bill.
While she had her successes in the WWE during her run from 2004-2011, Melina also burnt some bridges and had her fair share of backstage issues, especially when it came down to her off-screen relationships. After leaving the WWE, Melina failed to latch on to any of the other big name organizations and has bounced around the indie scene ever since. Although hacking into private property is certainly not condoned, one has to wonder if it was just karma coming back to seek revenge.
Miz, you lucky dawg! Let's be honest here Mike, both you and all of the fans in the WWE Universe know full well that when it comes to the MizTV segments, nobody is tuning in to watch you flap your gums. Even if she is just standing there looking pretty, your wife is one hot piece of eye candy!
After hanging up the boots as an active wrestler back in 2011, Maryse returned to be by her husband's side in 2016 and has given reason to tune into either Raw or SmackDown Live ever since. Back in 2006 when WWE wasn't so PG, the French-Canadian bombshell found her way onto the cover of Playboy's Vixens. Throw in a Special Edition Playboy Calendar from 2008 and you can have Maryse all day every day, just like The Miz!
8 Gail Kim
Ah, the one beauty on this list better known for her accomplishments outside of WWE than she was during her time with the flagship wrestling brand. After winning the WWE Women's Championship in her first televised match, things kinda went south for the Canadian beauty (if you believe the stories about Vince's thoughts of how an Asian female would not be a success). With her bags packed, TNA awaited and so to did championship reigns, multiple ones in fact.
But who cares about title belts, we're talking other more important matters. If you were told that Kim posed topless (and there are some unrelated bottomless ones as well) for a Korean cell phone company's advertising campaign, would you believe it? Well, it's true, it's damn true. While she was jumping between WWE and TNA, Kim and her enhanced features were made prominent for all to enjoy.
7 Ashley Massaro
She made her debut in 2005 during the Diva Search and three years later, the punk rock wrestler would find her way out of the WWE ring. Luckily for fans of the New York native, she was given opportunity to perform in a number of high profile matches (not just scantily clad ones), including back-to-back appearances at WrestleMania (something that few female wrestlers are able to claim).
We should also remember that Massaro graced the cover and inside photo spread of the April 2007 issue of Playboy. While she may never have been one of the most talented performers in the ring, take nothing away from her beauty and the reasoning why she is on this list. Looking back at her time in the company, her Playboy storyline was one of the more noteworthy we remember her for.
6 Maria Kanellis
Honestly, she has little wrestling talent to speak of, but that doesn't stop Maria from appearing on this list. Now before the hacked photos were released into cyberspace, Maria made the decision to fully expose herself to wrestling fans through a Playboy spread during her first run with the WWE in 2008.
For those who may want something a little more fun, Maria found herself a role on a small budget flick called The Opposite Sex. How small budget was this film, put it this way, Rotten Tomatoes didn't even rank it. But who cares, why? Because our favorite ditzy backstage reporter (her original role with WWE), appears sans clothing while standing in front of the TV, trying to get her boyfriend's attention off of a video game. Dude has some serious issues!
Before she became Mrs. Lesnar, Sable certainly had little problem (or at least it was portrayed) in sharing herself with the WWE Universe. Whether it was skimpy bikinis or hand paint on her chest, Sable made herself a fan favorite during her first run with the the WWE.
In April 1999, Sable appeared in all her glory in one of Playboy's all time highest selling issues ever. How popular was it? Well lets put it this way, five months later, they welcomed her back for another spread. Didn't get enough of Sable in the first two issues? Well apparently Playboy and the blonde vixen thought that a third time would be the charm, this time bringing along a friend, Torrie Wilson. Ah, what a tag team!
4 Christy Hemme
For those who like choices in life, there are the airbrushed Playboy pictures or there are the more natural untouched pictures circulating from a little known publication called Wet N' Wild. While she isn't as accomplished as others on this list in terms of her in ring feats, Hemme found her way into the hearts of many male wrestling fans through the WWE Diva Search.
After just a short stint with the WWE, she had enough time to represent the company in the April 2005 issue of Playboy, Hemme would be released from her contract at the end of the year and head to TNA. Although she found the same minimal success as an in ring competitor, Hemme carved a niche as an announcer and interviewer with the company before leaving in 2016.
3 Candice Michelle
Again, another beautiful woman who the WWE brought in not so much for her spectacular in-ring ability as much as for her spectacular look and sex appeal. But to be fair to the former Playboy cover girl, Michelle worked hard to visibly improve her in-ring abilities, reflected by her capturing the Women's Championship at the Vengeance Night of Champions PPV.
While nobody will complain at her photo-shoot, it was her Wet and Wild match against Torrie Wilson that may have been one of the steamiest moments in WWE (let alone wrestling in general) history. While Michelle was featured in the more mainstream and socially accepted Playboy magazine, she also has some racier pics and films floating around cyberspace.
Wooooooooo the Nature Girl, oh natural! Unfortunately for Charlotte Flair she was also part of the group of WWE ladies that were cyber hacked and had her goods put on full display for the world to see. While her expose doesn't appear to be as raunchy as others on this list, what does seem to be concerning is the botched enhancements that she underwent (seemingly a requirement of Vince McMahon). Most of the pics seem to be more for her own use (maybe to keep track of body image and weight/size) rather than steamy pics to send off to lovers.
However, either way you want to look at it (them), the second generation wrestler and five-time WWE Women's Champion (four time RAW Champ, one time Divas Champ) has found her way into a select group that she probably doesn't want to be a part of.
If you happen to subscribe to Cinemax and watched the series Banshee from back in 2013, you may have stumbled across a seen in which Lana (CJ Perry) appeared in a very steamy scene involving all the vices of life (alcohol, gambling, sex). Before our favorite Ravishing Russian entered into the WWE, she found herself posing for a number of tasteful and artistic photo-shoots as well with less than minimal clothing, much to her fans delight.
Come on folks, do you really think there was some other reason why fans were chanting "We Want Lana" every time she was in the ring with Rusev?
After trying her hand at being a wrestler, it appears as though Lana is returning to her role as a manager for Tamina. Hopefully this also means the return of her short skirts and tight tops. Hey, beggars can't be choosers.
