Women’s wrestling is starting to pick up in a big way now with the Divas Revolution bringing in some fresh talent with extensive wrestling backgrounds. There was a time that the WWE just used women for show, not worrying about any sort of talent that they may have had in the ring. Because of this, there have been over 100 Divas to make their way through the biggest wrestling company in the world, and some have been very forgettable.
However, many of them made a big mark on the WWE, and fans would remember their faces if they were to come back. Some were solid in the ring while others were memorable valets or managers, but memorable nonetheless. Unlike some of the biggest superstars in the company, it seems like a lot of the Divas just disappear off the face of the Earth and we never hear from them again.
The shelf life for a Diva is pretty short, as many retire in their early 30s when they want to start a family or move on to other projects, such as modelling or TV projects. In fact even Trish Stratus, considered by many to be the best Diva of all time, was only with the company for six years.
So which Divas from the past haven’t had long returns to WWE, and what are they up to now? Here, we will take a look at 15 former WWE Divas and check in on how and what they are doing these days. We start the list with one of the most feared Divas of all-time.

When society tries to make you feel bad about not washing your hair... Be a F'n rebel and wear it in a bun and push it to the absolute max. Then wash.. And repeat 😁 Note- I use the bun wraps from Sally's Beauty Supply. Super easy to make a perfect bun in 30 seconds. #bunlife #BeautyAndBraun #celestialbody

1 Trish Stratus
The early 2000s would have been tough for the women’s division in the WWE had it not been for Trish Stratus. Stratus and Lita were the two best wrestlers at the time, and Stratus was with the company from 2000 to 2006. Stratus was a seven time Women’s Champion, and was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2013. Stratus worked as a reality television star for a couple of years after her departure, and even an actress in her native Canada. Now, Stratus is running a yoga studio in Toronto and has been married to Ron Fisico since 2006. Stratus gave birth to the couple's first child, Maximus, in September 2013.
