The role of female wrestlers within the WWE has changed in recent years. While they’ve always been presented as performers, the modern wave of female wrestlers now find themselves being treated more sincerely in regards to their craft. You won’t find that many “eye-candy” models in the WWE who can’t hold their own anymore. As wrestling fans adjust to the shift, the WWE continues to pump out great talent for its female roster. These women are as talented as they are beautiful. Though the company seems to be leaning towards talent rather than appearance, that doesn’t mean that its female wrestlers are ugly ducklings. In fact they’re some of the most beautiful women we’ve seen on the roster.
Photo shoots are a big part of being a WWE Diva. Some of the most popular women in wrestling like Trish Stratus and Stacy Keibler solidified their popularity among fans with numerous photo shoots – showing off their incredible good looks and charisma. Among the most popular though are bikini shoots. They’re a great chance to show off your fun side and look great doing it. Whether it’s the gorgeous weather, beautiful scenery or just seeing your favourite Diva cut loose, these pictures do very well with fans. Here are 20 Diva pictures you’ve never seen before.
20 Eve Torres
Eve Torres’ time as a WWE Diva might be over, but it never hurts to take a walk down memory lane every now and then. Having been introduced to the WWE Universe after winning the 2007 Diva Search, Eve’s career began picking up steam in 2008 before winning her first of three Divas Championships in 2010. While we’ve gotten many great shots of her over the years, this picture of her in a red bikini is just as great as any other you’d see online. The refreshed look on her face says it all, she’s enjoying every minute of her job. Why wouldn’t she? Between the crowds cheering and the exotic photo shoot locations, it must’ve been great while it lasted.
Here’s another picture of a former Diva in her prime, this time it’s the tough as nails Melina. Having officially debuted with the WWE back in 2005, Melina spent six good years with the company, eventually leaving in 2011. She might be a little intimidating at first, but when you get down to it Melina’s a very beautiful woman. Here we see her in a stunning pink bikini lounging around on a beach ball. She looks uncharacteristically lax but still approachable enough to have a good time. With her bedazzled two piece and plethora of jewelry on hand, Melina looks more prepared for a walk down Sunset Boulevard rather than a day at the beach. Either way, this is a nice find.
18 Rosa Mendes
The recently retired Rosa Mendes finds herself as the next entry on our list. Long before she’d gone on maternity leave, Rosa was – for a time – one of the better looking Divas on the roster. Never grasping any major individual success during her stay, Rosa didn’t have the most memorable career. But one thing she does have going for her is looks. Here we see Rosa in a light pink two piece bikini to compliment her olive skin and delicate features. The baby blue backdrop suggests that this was probably an indoor shoot, but Rosa looks like she’s ready for a day at the beach. Having recently become a mother, we hope that she and her new family can enjoy some well deserved downtime come this summer.
Though her time with the WWE was short, Tiffany will always be remembered for her charm rather than any actual contributions she made throughout her tenure. She spent a couple of years as the ECW general manager before moving on to SmackDown. While she was inevitably let go, let’s take some time to appreciate this rare picture. We see Tiffany at the beach hanging off a life guard post with a radiating smile on her face. Two pigtails hang down her face and she’s wearing an alluring dark green bikini with a red belt along her waist. It definitely contributes to her sporty look. She might not have lasted very long with the company, but it’s always nice to see more of her.
It’s been just about seven years since fans last saw Maria Kanellis on WWE programming. Another beneficiary of the WWE Diva Search, Maria lasted six years with the company before moving on to Ring of Honor in 2011. She’s currently with TNA but nothing can compare to her days as a WWE Diva. All the proof you need’s in the picture above. We see her wearing a nice blue two piece as she strikes a seductive pose for the camera. The background is a little blurred but we can assume that she’s on a boat. A beautiful sunset is captured as part of the scenery, accentuating the splendour of the shot. While we don’t know exactly when his was taken you can be sure that this was Maria in her prime.
15 Candice Michelle
Along with Torrie Wilson and Trish Stratus, Candice Michelle is one of the most memorable Divas of the early 2000s. Sadly, her WWE career was marred with injuries towards the end, but we can always look back at her time with the company fondly. In this picture, we see Candice in a very flattering pink two piece with what seems to be a hefty amount of jewelry around her neck. She’s playfully holding a beach ball while giving the camera a seductive glance. Why she’s holding a beach ball when it looks like she’s on a balcony is a mystery but hey, it adds to the picture – so why not. She’s currently busy being a mother, but we’re sure she remembers her WWE days fondly.
14 Lilian Garcia
Unlike most Divas on this list, Lilian Garcia made her mark in the WWE as an announcer. The Spanish beauty was with the company for ten years before retiring. She came back in 2011 but ultimately retired once more, this time for good. Unlike the other beach oriented pictures in this list, Lilian’s outfit looks more like a skimpy diver suit than an actual bikini. We get a good look at her lounging on what looks to be some sort of algae formation in the sea – adding to the whole wet suit idea. Though it’s a little unconventional she still rocks the look. She’s a dual threat with both great looks and a fantastic singing voice, and this picture shows one of those off very prominently.
Here we see another former Diva appear o the list. At this point, it might seem like all that’s all this list is going to be, but patience is a virtue. For now, please make do with this wonderful picture of Layla during her time with the WWE. The British bombshell spent nine years with the company, retiring back in 2015. While it’s not surprising considering her time as a model, Layla stuns in this rare picture of her during her time with the WWE. The tight fitting, bright red bikini perfectly accentuates her curves while she gives the camera her best pose. The beautiful ocean view in the background only adds to the elegance of the shot.
The current Women’s Champion occupies the next spot on our list. As the first active Diva on our list, Naomi meets every expectation we could have had and then some. In terms of location this picture isn’t anything special. There are no tropical beaches or ocean background. Just a plain white backdrop. But Naomi steals the show. In a pink two piece and showing off her radiant smile, Naomi instantly grabs your attention. Her fit figure is modestly shown as we struggle to pry our eyes away from her ravishing gaze. It’s no secret that most Divas are beautiful but if Naomi ever gets tired of wrestling she can definitely make a run at modeling.
11 Lena Yada
Yet another Diva search graduate, this time we find ourselves with Lena Yada as the next entry on our list. Lena had a short career in the WWE, but regardless has managed to stick in the minds of fans. We wonder why. Could it be her absolutely fantastic look? We think so. This picture perfectly clarifies the sentiment. It’s a beach shoot as we see Lena standing under a pier. Her floral patterned bikini perfectly complements the setting, but that’s not what the camera’s focusing on. She’s hidden behind one of the wooden pillars, perfectly catching her playful side. Though her time in the WWE was short lived, it’s these moments that fans remember fondly.
10 Alicia Fox
Next up we’ve got Alicia Fox in another heart pounding bikini picture. Alicia’s been with the company for a long time, but has managed to fly under the radar for the most part. Still, she an incredibly unique Diva as this picture suggests. While most would try to strike their most seductive pose or present the camera with an alluring glance, Alicia looks like she just wanted to have fun with this one. And that’s why it stands out so much. Armed with two mini water guns and a flattering yellow one piece, Alicia brings out the kid in all of us in this picture. Who wants to sit in the sand all day when you can shoot each other up with water guns instead?
9 Brie Bella
The recently retired Bella finds herself as the next entry on our list. Currently expecting her first child with Daniel Bryan, Brie is recently removed from the WWE scene but still finds herself commanding much of the same attention she did as a Diva. The former Divas Champion looks stunning in this picture. We can only speculate but it looks like this was taken during her later years with the company. Contrary to other shots on the list, here we see Brie laying down, giving us a nice look at her legs and an even better look at her beautiful smile. The wooden deck she’s lying down on doesn’t look all too comfortable from here, but it looks like she’s making the best of it.
8 Kelly Kelly
Here we go with another laying down shot. This time it’s former Diva Kelly Kelly. Having last appeared in 2012, it’s about time fans got reacquainted with the onetime Divas Champion. Always a sight for sore eyes, here we see Kelly Kelly very close up. It gives the entire shot a very intimate feel as she’s so close you’d imagine they’d had no trouble whatsoever trying to capture this moment. Her All-American pride is clearly on display in the form of a stringy one piece, with her waist barely covered by some jean shorts. But hey, we’re not complaining. In fact we’d love it if she showed her patriotism like this more often.
7 Nikki & Brie Bella
This one might be cheating a little, but do you honestly care all that much? We thought not. Anyway here we see wrestling’s favourite sisters, The Bellas. Here we get the best of both worlds as both Nikki and Brie take center stage for our latest entry. This close-up shot shows off the sisterly bond these two share and it’s smiles all around. From the looks of it, they were enjoying a nice day at the beach as it seems that their hair is wet. The bright yellow swimsuits along with the beautiful weather add to the general vibe the picture gives off. Seems like it was one great day at the beach.
Russev’s beautiful bride and semi-professional Russian accent impersonator, Lana is a very talented and beautiful woman. When she’s not accompanying her gargantuan husband to the ring, she’s taking part in photo shoots like these. Honestly speaking, we wish we had more! She’s absolutely stunning in this indoor shot. A bikini shoot doesn’t need to take place outside in order to get a great picture. Lana looks perfectly comfortable in front of the camera in her seductive yet elegant attire. The white and black ensemble perfectly fit her sharp features and bring attention to her fantastic body. It isn’t easy being a WWE Diva, but as a fan it doesn’t get that much better than this.
5 Nikki Bella
Well we’ve already covered Brie and we just recently looked over a picture of her and her sister together, so now let’s give Nikki her time in the sun. Having recently battled some injuries, it’ll be nice to talk about Nikki in a more positive light. If the previous picture of the twins was them out of the water then this picture must be of Nikki before she went it. Her flattering yellow and green bikini pops off the screen, instantly grabbing the viewer’s attention. It looks as though the picture was taken by a different camera than the one she’s looking at but regardless it captures her seductive gaze just as well. You can argue about which Bella you like more all you want, but this picture speaks for itself.
4 Becky Lynch
Next up on our list is the fiery looking Becky Lynch. The Irish star has only been with the WWE for a few years but she’s got a very devoted fan base and is already one of its most popular female stars. We tend not to sexualize Becky as much as other female stars before her, focusing instead on her as a performer. And that’s awesome. It’s a trend that’s being applied to a lot of female wrestlers in the modern era as they continue to make their mark as performers instead of just eye candy. That being said, Becky is a very beautiful woman and this photo here shows it. A nice day at the beach, a stunning smile and a whole bunch of good vibes - that’s this picture in a nutshell and we wouldn’t want it any other way.
3 Sasha Banks
Sasha Banks is yet another young starlet who’s taken the WWE by storm in recent years. As much as that is a testament to her skill in the ring, you’ve also got to acknowledge her insatiable good looks. Here we see The Boss poolside as she relaxes during this shoot. As she sheepishly looks away from the camera we notice the glistening water and the huge chunk of bling around her neck. The red bikini is a perfect match for her. With everything behind her out of focus, we get a great look at Sasha and that’s how it should be. While not the most revealing photo on this list, Sasha’s charm shines through just enough for it to be one of the more memorable.
2 Torrie Wilson
Here we’ve got our last former Diva of the list. Of course it’s the beautiful Torrie Wilson. If you thought you’d seen just about every Torrie Wilson picture out there, well you’re wrong. This elusive little bugger was just out of your reach – till now. We’ve seen plenty of pictures of Torrie in a bikini, so this one might not strike you as anything special. But it’s a great addition to her repertoire. She’s wearing blue, a color she looks great in and is pulling off her best model pose. Not surprising to anyone here, Torrie still looks fantastic well after retiring. But this is definitely from her glory days.
The last entry on our list is the beautiful Charlotte. The pride of the Flair family has had an incredibly successful career in her short time as a Diva. Maybe it’s some of dad’s genes propelling her towards success. Whatever it is, it’s working for her. The same can be said about this photo shoot. While she’s got a tough exterior Charlotte is clearly one of the most beautiful women on the roster. Here she lies down on the beach striking an alluring pose for the camera. Her blue top and red bottom compliment her tan skin perfectly as the sun bounces off her. She’s one of the most popular wrestlers on the roster for a reason, and she’s showing it here.
