It wasn't long ago I put Stephanie McMahon in her place, which was way down on the list of wrestlers finest daughters. Now, it's time to rank Charlotte Flair, who was hot, but that's also more about how rich she is, and not about her hardened, androgynous looks. "Char," also rode daddy’s back to be the next star of the WWE, but her sex appeal is losing ground to other ladies in wrestling.
Charlotte Flair, just like ol' Steph, hooked on to daddy's wagon and used her dad's connections and names to make it big. The reality is that though "Char" had her time at the top, she ain't there anymore. All Kings and Queens pass on their crowns, everyone finds their place, and Charlotte is just too... related to Ric.
All these beautiful ladies have dads or moms that are wrestlers and leave Charlotte in the dust. For those that entered the ring, their desire and skills to engage in and receive physical and emotional punishment is off the charts and a little crazy. They saw their fathers or mothers rise to stardom and want to achieve the fame and fortune some of them earned. Or maybe dedication, drive, work ethic, and fury just runs in their veins.
But then there are others who can't ignore the dark side of wrestling life. They knew about the concussions, the damage to their backs, knees, and neck. They may have seen the pain killers, the addiction, the doors that never opened, and the ones that quickly closed. But whatever these women saw, it kept them from the ring. Whether these women wrestled or not isn't what matters, they happen to be gorgeous and passing Charlotte on the way to the top.
20 SAMMY HALL (RAVEN LAKE)
Many of you may not know Sammy Hall, as she's spent her career wrestling north of the border in Canada, but she appears to have a bright future in wrestling. Sammy Hall is just 25 years old and was born in the Great White North where she is kicking butt and taking names. Her mother is Raven Lake, which shows wrestling ladies also follow in their mom's footprints. Sammy also wrestles under the name Bambi and her younger sister, Liiza, is also in the game and an occasional tag team partner. Sammy works regularly throughout the Canadian promotions including the Canadian National Wrestling Alliance where she became a CNWA Women's Champion. So watch out Char, there's another one coming. Canada may soon have another big wrestling export.
19 SAMANTHA STARR (NICKLA ROBERTS)
Samantha Starr is a third generation pro wrestler related to Sam Houston, Nickla Roberts, Jake “The Snake” Roberts, and Rockin’ Robin. She’s got a serious take on the sport, and her uncle’s signature move, the DDT, is also her finishing move. Samantha was not a fan while growing up but likes it now because, get this, female wrestling is not overly sexual. Huh? Nice pose! But for real, she’s into the technical aspect of wrestling and doesn’t want anything to come easy just because of her bloodlines.
In fact, she’s really inspired by her family, Jeff and Matt Hardy, Randy Orton, and CM Punk. And Charlotte never looked this good... With her family lineage, she should eventually get a shot with the WWE.
18 AMY HENNIG (“MR. PERFECT” CURT HENNIG)
Many of you probably didn't know, or you forgot that Curt Hennig had a daughter that has taken up wrestling for most of her adult life. Amy, the daughter of “Mr Perfect,” was surrounded with wrestling from the time she was born. When she signed a WWE developmental contract in 2008, she was training at Harley Race’s WLW school.Though her dad never won a major title in the WWE, she fulfilled his and her dreams when she won the Women’s Championship three times in World League Wrestling. She defeated Stacy O’Brien for her first championship. Though she's getting older and wrestles less frequently, there's little doubt she'd turn Charlotte into a pretzel. It's a little puzzling she never got a chance in a bigger promotion.
17 BROOKE HOGAN (HULK HOGAN)
Brooke Ellen Bollea, like her father, is an entertainment star. She first fell in love with music and began working on her first album in 2002. She went to promote her music with her father and they were such a hit, the show “Hogan Knows Best” was born. Her first album, “Undiscovered,” was released in 2006 and actually did OK. Her second album, “The Redemption,” was, well, awful. She then pursued acting and appeared in a series of low budget movies and television shows. In 2012, Hogan signed with Total Nonstop Action Wrestling and debuted in the WWE in 20o6. Though Brooke also rode Daddy to the bank, he was one of the few who stood up to big Vince McMahon. Now it’s time for Brooke to step on Char, which she does in the looks department.
16 ALANA LESLIE (BRUTAS "THE BARBER" BEEFCAKE)
Anyone who was around to enjoy the glory days of wrestling knows the former friend of Hulk Hogan, Brutus “The Barber” Beefcake. Beefcake was legendary and truly unique. Also truly unique and way cuter than Charlotte is his daughter, known as “Baby Beefcake.” She signed with Jersey Championship Wrestling but her career really hasn't taken off. And you know what? That's just fine with me because being on the beach and avoiding the hazards of the ring is better for everyone. There were whispers a couple of years ago that a wrestling promotion comprising of wrestling daughters was going to launch and Alana would be a part of it, but unfortunately it hasn't come to fruition.
15 BEANS HART (BRET HART)
Alexandra “Beans” Hart, daughter of wrestling star Bret Hart, is hinting she wants to be a part of the WWE and I’m all for it. The WWE should welcome her with open arms. But over the years, it seems "Beans" is more comfortable in evening wear than a singlet, and would rather lay on a bed than a mat. So unless she wants to be a manager or valet, I'm happier to see her like this and in one piece. While she's said she wants to pursue a career in wrestling, not much has come up in terms of her paying her dues in independent promotions or word of her seriously training. She has one of the best possible teachers i the world in her father, so hopefully some headway is made here soon.
14 KAYLA ARMSTRONG (SCOTT ARMSTRONG)
Kayla’s father, Scott Armstrong, and her grandpa, "Bullet" Bob, are some of the most recognizable faces in wrestling history, and hers should be too. She tried out for NXT in 2013 but didn't make the cut. I guess the WWE wasn't ready for another lady that could pin Charlotte, and that's just fine cause we all know the truth. Just like pops and grand pop would demolish the Flairs, she'd pin them too. Kayla has several wrestlers in her family, and not including Bullet Bob and Scott Armstrong, she's also related to the Road Dogg, who works backstage in WWE as a road agent. Perhaps Kayla could make her way to WWE as well one day.
13 MERISSA ROOD (RICK RUDE)
“Ravishing” Rick Rude, yeah, the relative, was a three-time WCW International World Heavyweight Champion, a one time WCWA Intercontinental World Heavyweight Champion, a WWE Intercontinental World Heavyweight Champion, and a WCW United States World Heavyweight Champion. He died in 1999; he was a young man, and he gave everything he had to the sport.
Merissa doesn't wrestle, but for her dad, I’d love to see her get in the ring and kick some butt. She sure lived up to the 'ravishing' part in her father's name. WWE fans got to see her earlier this year at the WWE Hall of Fame ceremony when she was on hand to induct her father, along with her brother and mother. WWE fans in attendance DEFINITELY noticed her.
12 JESSE BELLE SMOTHERS (TRACY SMOTHERS)
Move over Char because Jessie is here and looking better than ever. Jessie's father was Tracy, a former WCW, ECW, WWE wrestler, and she looks just as comfy in the ring. Jessie has been wrestling for 6 years in TNA’s Ohio Valley Wrestling and won the Women's Championship twice. Not only is she perfect in terms of looks, but she's also got plenty of attitude. She's constantly in Vince's ear and trying to get him to add more gorgeous gals that can wrestle.
Jessie is still working her way up and I'd love to see her get in the ring with Charlotte. With the way wrestling is going today, as far as the women's division in WWE, it wouldn't be surprising to see Smothers get in there as well one day.
11 BRONWYNNE BILLINGTON (DYNAMITE KID)
Bronwynne, A.K.A, “The Dynamite Doll,” is the oldest daughter of Tom Billington, A.K.A “The Dynamite Kid.” Get it?! She grew up in the wrestling business and got her first shot when a promotion in Calgary was having a huge show. She is a daddy’s girl and has pictures of herself as a kid with Macho Man and Elizabeth.
Lately, she isn’t wrestling as much and manages her husband, “Dynamite Dan.” It seems everything with her is dynamite, and Char should try on a dress and see if she looks this dynamite! With her just being a valet and not a full-time performer it's not out of the question that WWE may one day seek her out to act as a valet to a current WWE Superstar in need of a shot in the arm.
10 TAMINA SNUKA ("SUPERFLY")
Tamina is the daughter of the late Jimmy “Superfly” Snuka, who is one of the few truly original and spectacular wrestlers. She had a "jump" start into the business while training at the Wild Samoan Training Center in Minneola and is now quite the veteran. She made her debut in 2010 as a villain when she made it her mission to destroy the Hart family. She wrestled for RAW, The Divas Championship, was AJ Lee's bodyguard, and then had to take time off after an injury. But it's hard to keep a good woman down, and she's back to take on all comers. Tamina has finally resurfaced on WWE programming recently, but it looks like her window to be a top star in the women's division has passed.
9 ARIEL TOOMBS (RODDY PIPER)
Ariel Teal Toombs wrote a book about her father, is an actress and singer in Los Angeles, and is the middle daughter of Rowdy Roddy Piper. How is this not perfect? Picture her in the ring with Char or anyone on this list, and heck, while we’re at it, let’s see if Tony Atlas or Lou Albano has a daughter and we can get the band back together. When she was asked if there was a chance the Toombs would wrestle for the WWE, she said she or her brother would listen. Did you hear that? So take her for her word, Vince, and don’t worry that she is prettier or smarter than half the ladies you have out there because she looks more like a lover than a fighter.
8 SHAUL GUERRERO (EDDIE GUERRERO)
Shaul Guerrero, known in the ring as Raquel Diaz, is the daughter of Eddie Guerrero, who was known as “Latino Heat.” She is also a singer, model, and valet. In October 2010, Guerrero signed with the WWE and became the Queen of FCW. She held the title for 119 days, and in 2011, Guerrero won the FCW Divas Championship. Her killer moves are the Gory Bomb and Corner sitout powerbomb and probably anything else she does with her killer legs. In 2014, it was reported that the WWE released Guerrero, but she later said she left for personal reasons. Either way, it must have been nice watching her walk out. It doesn't look like her career in wrestling will continue, but surely she'll find her true calling.
7 PAIGE (BEVIS FAMILY)
Saraya-Jade Bevis. better known as Paige, is the daughter of wrestlers Ian Bevis and Julia Hamer Bevis. Probably as big time as they come, Paige was scared of wrestling as a child because of the injuries her family received. But by the age of 13, she got over her worries really fast and made her debut in the ring by 2011. She has won several championships and finally made the big stage in 2014. In her debut, she won the Divas Championship, becoming the youngest champion in the title’s history at the age of 21. Paige is a two-time Divas Champ and the first ever NXT Women's Champ. So basically, she can beat the heck out of Char and Ric and look good doing it.
6 THEA TRINIDAD (MICHAEL TRINIDAD)
You never know what you’ll find when you start looking, and it was amazing to learn that Thea Megan Trinidad’s dad was a high school wrestler, amateur wrestler, and huge fan of the WWE. It was his dream to make the WWE but he was killed in the September 11th attacks in the World Trade Center. She was just 10, and decided to wrestle to honor him, so she counts triple. Known in the ring as Rosita, she was a one-time Knockouts Tag Team Champion. She’s also a champ outside the ring and was a camp counselor for children that lost parents on 9/11. She’s also participated in Habitat for Humanity after Hurricane Katrina. Char could take a class from her about real life and wrestling.
5 NATALYA NEIDHART (JIM NEIDHART)
The gorgeous and sexy Natalya Neidhart can and should be seen everywhere. On the mat, she learned about wrestling from her uncles, Ross and Bruce, and from the legendary Hart family. She wrestled for Matrats and Stampede where she won the Stampede Women’s Pacific and Super Stampede Championship. In January 2007, she signed a contract with the WWE and spent time in the the southern circuits. In September 2010, Neidhart began focusing on singles’ competition where she won the Divas Championship. Since July 2013, Neidhart has been featured in the “Total Divas” reality show. But I’m convinced the best place to see the always smiling and sultry wrestler is not in a ring but in gowns. She’d pin "Charie baby" anywhere.
4 TESSA BLANCHARD (TULLY BLANCHARD)
Now we're talking! Tessa Blanchard is the grand-daughter of wrestler Joe Blanchard, daughter of Tully, and stepdaughter of Magnum TA. She debuted for Queens of Combat but lost her first few matches as a villainess and her first win came against LuFisto. Today, she’s wrestling for Shine Wrestling, The Women Superstars Uncensored, and picked up her first victory against Sassy Stephie. She’s also wrestled for the WWE in 2014 and 2016. A woman like this grew up having to earn her way which alone put her a league above ol' Charlotte. See ya Charlotte Flair, you’re falling way behind, and Tessa is only 21, so she’s going to get another look by the WWE once she gets a little more experience.
3 LACEY VON ERICH (KERRY VON ERICH)
You have got to be impressed with the "Murderers' Row" of beautiful daughters in the wrestling world. Lacey Dawn Adkisson is her real name, and even though she is retired, Charie Dear is no match for her. She is the daughter of Kerry Von Erich and is best known for her time in Total Nonstop Action Wrestling where she was a Tag Team Champion. She was also the Windy City Pro Wrestling champ and used the Von Erich Claw and the Tornado Punch to kick butt. But here, she can use the beach, her smile, or anything she wants to go for the pin. It’s a shame she never got to showcase her talents in the WWE, but then again, she's perfect just the ways she is.
2 BIANCA CARELLI (SANTINO MARELLA)
Bianca Carelli is the daughter of the comedic Santino Marella, who debuted in an episode for Raw and won the WWE Intercontinental Championship. During h Santino's career, career, he was two-time WWE Intercontinental Champion, a one-time WWE Tag Team Champion with Vladimir Kozlov, and won the WWE United States Championship in 2012. He announced his retirement on July 6, 2014, and his daughter won Miss Teen Ontario. Though she hasn’t wrestled, she’d look amazing on the mat. She is close to the wrestling family and so much more attractive than a Flair she stays right here. Not only does she kick Char’s butt outside the ring, her dad would have pummeled old Ric.
1 NOELLE FOLEY (MICK FOLEY)
And #1 is... Noelle Foley is just drop dead “all that.” The daughter of WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley, Noelle has been working out at the WWE Performance Center in Orlando. Noelle said that watching her father, who is a three-time WWE World Champion, was a big reason for wanting to get into the business. She also has a passion for it because wrestling had a huge impact on her life. She believes that a lot of people looked up to her dad and she wants a lot of people to look up to her. Cheers to that idea! We got to see her first tryout for WWE on the WWE Network series Holy Foley, and while she didn’t receive a contract, we wouldn’t bet against her getting one in the future.
