On November 20, 2017, former WWE Divas Champion Paige returned to Monday Night Raw. However, the pale brunette from Norwich, England didn’t return alone. She brought with her two debuting superstars that helped her take the Raw women’s division by storm.
Paige introduced a 5-foot-4 muscle bound blonde by the name of Mandy Rose; a former competitor on the WWE reality show Tough Enough. Fans of the E! hit show Total Divas will also be familiar with the 26-year-old powerhouse. The other debuting superstar was Sonya Deville. Deville is a former mixed martial artist, who also made a name for herself in WWE’s developmental territory, NXT. Like Rose, Deville was also a former Tough Enough competitor.
The faction made up of Paige, Rose, and Deville is known collectively as Absolution. Since arriving on the scene, the heel trio has been wreaking havoc by attacking popular stars like Bayley, Mickie James, and Sasha Banks. Absolution has not only managed to capture wrestling fans' attention; they have also succeeded in capturing their hearts. That’s because these three wrestling beauties make up the hottest faction in WWE in more ways than one.
Anyone who might doubt that Absolution is the steamiest faction in sports entertainment, will certainly change their tune after seeing these 15 photos.
15 Paige In A Black Skirt
Fans of WWE superstar Paige know that the 25-year-old seems to have a thing for black outfits. The 5-foot-7 brunette shows us why, in this instance, as she clearly looks amazing in this black leather jacket and skin-tight skirt combo. The attire helps to showcase the former champ’s lower half while she poses for the cameraperson. The spikes on her top also help accentuate the Absolution leader’s bad girl persona.
Absolution Fact: Paige, whose real name is Saraya-Jade Bevis, comes from a wrestling family. Her mother Julia Hamer-Bevis wrestles under the name Saraya Knight (aka Sweet Saraya). Her father, Patrick Bevis, is better known to wrestling fans as Ricky Knight. In fact, even her brothers Zak Bevis (Zak Zodiac) and Roy Bevis (Zebra Kid) are pro wrestlers.
14 Mandy's Back Shot
It’s next to impossible to find an image of Mandy Rose when she isn’t in peak physical condition. In this pic, the blonde bombshell doesn’t look like she skipped many (if any) days at the gym before this photo shoot. The main roster rookie shows fans her back muscles as she poses with an over-the-shoulder glance into the camera. Rose may be new on the scene (at least in terms of the main roster), but she has already established herself as one of the most beautiful women in all of WWE.
Absolution Fact: Mandy Rose, whose real name is Amanda Saccomanno, was born in Westchester County, New York. She is the youngest of four siblings. Prior to wrestling, Rose earned a degree in speech pathology from Iona College.
13 Sonya's Candid Beach Shot
While she has a sort of tough girl persona when in the ring, as we can see here, Sonya Deville is capable of looking every bit as steamy as her Absolution stablemates. The 5-foot-7 brunette shows she can model a bathing suit as well as any of WWE’s top female performers. Deville looks nothing short of amazing in this stunning beachside photo. It’s easy to see why this image got over 4,000 likes on Instagram.
Absolution Fact: Sonya Deville is a native of Shamong Township, New Jersey. While she performs under the name Sonya Deville, her given name is actually Daria Berenato, which she used in Tough Enough. As a teen, she attended Seneca High School which is based in her home state of New Jersey. It was in her late teens (17) that she began training in mixed martial arts.
12 Paige's Selfie Abs
Paige is an athlete who always looks to be in great shape. That being said, the British starlet looks especially ripped while taking this selfie. Her abs leave little doubt that she had been doing crunches in bunches before this shot. The popular performer shows off her impressive muscle definition in her black short shorts and sports bra. If selfies are an art form, than Paige is Picasso with a cell phone.
Absolution Fact: One of Paige’s most memorable feuds during her time on the European independent circuit was against her own mother, Sweet Saraya. Paige (who was competing as Britani Knight at the time) defeated her mom back in 2009 to capture the Herts and Essex (HEW) Women’s Championship. She also captured another title that year, WAWW British Championship from Sweet Saraya.
11 Mandy's Body Suit
Mandy Roses’s fitness background is apparent in seemingly every photo she is a part of. The New Yorker looks ready for a fitness competition (something she isn’t a stranger to) while posing in this stunning one-piece swimsuit. Based on this photo, it’s fair to say that Rose has done more than her fair share of squats over the years. In her caption, the WWE newcomer sums up the photo nicely, “Thick thighs & Pretty eyes.”
Absolution Fact: After seeing posts like this, it probably won’t surprise anyone to discover that Rose is a former fitness competitor. In 2013 she impressed the judges and ended up taking first place in the World Bodybuilding Fitness and Fashion Boston Show. She followed up her performance by winning the World Beauty Fitness & Fashion Bikini Championship in 2014.
10 Double Trouble
In this photo, we see both Mandy Rose and Sonya Deville all dressed up for WrestleMania. Despite the fact that their black dresses look very similar, according to the caption, “we did not plan this.” As is evident in the photo, these ladies look as good in formal dresses as they do in their ring gear. The Absolution members show that they are more than capable of classing things up a bit with this fun photo.
Absolution Fact: Sonya Deville’s mixed martial arts background has been well documented on WWE programming. While it can sometimes be difficult to separate fact from fiction in the world of professional wrestling, in this instance, Deville has actually competed in MMA. In fact, she had three professional fights before becoming a pro wrestler.
9 Paige Taking A Seat
With constantly being on the road, and away from family, the life of a pro wrestler can be tough. This may be why Paige appears to be enjoying a little downtime while reading her book in a rocking chair. The brunette uses this opportunity to show off her legs and stylish platform shoes. Moreover, the hat almost makes it look like the popular wrestler is getting ready to go on a safari. Whatever the case may be, the former women’s champ gives her fans yet another memorable photo.
Absolution Fact: Despite only being 25 years of age, Paige already been wrestling for roughly 12 years. That’s right, the leader of Absolution has been wrestling since she was 13-years-old. In her earliest matches, she went by the name Britani Knight.
8 Strike A Pose, Mandy
Mandy Rose almost looks like she is back competing in fitness competitions, the way she is posing in this photo. The blonde stunner looks flawless as she stands near the edge of a dock in her black swimsuit. While Rose looks amazing, as always, she almost looks too good to be standing at, what appears to be, an abandoned wood platform with an equally empty looking building behind it. It’s almost a shame for all that beauty to go to waste. At least it made for a great photo.
Absolution Fact: Mandy Rose was first introduced to WWE fans when she competed for a contract on the reality series Tough Enough. She did remarkably well on the show and finished as the runner-up in the women’s division behind a wrestler named Sara Lee.
7 Sonya's Hair Is Up!
In this photo, WWE Superstar Sonya Deville looks like she is dressed for a night out on the town. The black dress likely had folks looking in the 24-year-old direction that particular evening. In the caption she says, “Hair is up… y’all know that means.” Her quote is making reference to her signature catchphrase “put your hair up and square up.” Deville proves to be every bit as photogenic as her Absolution teammates in an Instagram post that will have fans doing a double take.
Absolution Fact: Sonya Deville is 2-1 as a professional mixed martial artist. She won her first two fights against Allenita Perez (via submission) and Jeselia Perez (via TKO). However, she lost her most recent bout in March of 2015 against Jasmine Pouncy via unanimous decision.
6 Rugby Paige
It seems only natural that WWE would have one of their most popular European stars doing a photo shoot promoting rugby. Paige shows off her flawless figure in this white outfit while holding a rugby ball. It isn't often we see the pale brunette doing photo shoots in outfits that aren’t predominantly black. That being said, as we see here, the British superstar looks breathtaking in seemingly any outfit. Moreover, the 25-year-old's athletic build makes her the perfect model for this concept.
Absolution Fact: Paige was inaugural NXT Women's Champion as well as two-time WWE Divas Champion. Interestingly enough, she also happens to the first WWE women’s champ to have been born in the 1990s, with her date of birth being August 17, 1992. Paige already has a Hall of Fame resume at just 25 years of age.
5 Mandy's Snack Time
In this photo we see everyone's favorite blonde Absolution member eating a muffin. It’s clear, based on her physique, that Rose takes her diet pretty seriously. When you make a living working in spandex, staying in shape is a very important part of the job (for most characters anyway). The former NXT star shows what kind shape one can expect to be in when eating things like Mikey’s Muffins as she poses in her gray short shorts and black sports bra. Anyone who doesn’t believe in the benefits of the proper diet and exercise clearly hasn’t seen this photo.
Absolution Fact: Fans of the hit E! reality show Total Divas will recall that Rose was actually a main cast member on the fifth season of the show.
4 Bathroom Selfie
It’s pretty impressive when someone can take a selfie in front of bathroom stalls and still create an amazing photo. Sonya Deville and Mandy Rose decide to take an outstanding restroom pic, while posing in their wrestling attire. When a person looks great, sometimes they have to seize the moment, even if that moment happens to occur in a less than ideal location. Despite where this pic was captured, these ladies look so good that there won't be too many fans talking crap.
Absolution Fact: Sonya Deville used her real name Daria Berenato when she first appeared in WWE’s developmental promotion, NXT. However, on a May 3rd, 2017 edition of NXT she debuted under the name she uses today, Sonya Deville. Her first match under the new name was a women’s battle royal in which she was eliminated by Peyton Royce and Billie Kay.
3 Ride 'Em, Cow Girl!
In this Instagram post, Paige decided to go a little country in this steamy cowgirl get up. The caption below the image reads, “It’s not a phase mum. I’m a real cowgirl.” While it’s unlikely we’ll be seeing Paige doing the cowgirl gimmick on television anytime soon; she still looks amazing in the costume. There are definitely more than a few wrestling fans out their who would love to go horseback riding with the lovely former champ.
Absolution Fact: When she first appeared on FCW (WWE’s developmental promotion at the time) Paige teamed with Sofia Cortez (aka Ivelisse from Lucha Underground) to form the “Anti-Diva Army.” Their first match was a loss to a wrestler named Audrey Mare and Kaitlyn, the latter of which would eventually go on to become WWE Divas Champion.
2 Triple Threat
This photo shows the entire Absolution team in all their glory. The three ladies pose in their ring gear before (or maybe even after) wreaking havoc in the WWE ring. Paige, Mandy, and Sonya appear to be in remarkable physical condition as they try and look tough for the camera. After seeing this photo, one would be hard-pressed to name a hotter faction (both literally and figuratively) in WWE than these young ladies. With the first all-female Royal Rumble just around the corner, Absolution looks poised to have a major impact.
Absolution Fact: At present, Paige is the only member of Absolution to have held the Women's (then Divas) Championship. Her first title reign began the day after WrestleMania XXX, when she won an impromptu match against AJ Lee.
1 Mandy Lifting, Bro
The hashtag “#MondayMotivation” is quite fitting for any would be pro wrestler or aspiring fitness models. Mandy Rose reminds that she didn’t get her world-class physique by sitting around eating potato chips, as she poses with weights for this eye-catching Instagram post. In a faction made up of three beautiful women, Rose makes her case for being the hottest member of Absolution with this steamy workout photo. Pics such as this one remind wrestling fans why Mandy Rose is a must follow on social media outlets like Instagram. She is clearly one of the most photogenic stars in entertainment today.
Absolution Fact: Absolution’s leader Paige was previously engaged to wrestler Jose Alberto Rodriguez, who is better known by his ring name, Alberto Del Rio. The couple never wed and recently split in late 2017.
