Although the perception of women within the WWE has changed rather drastically over the last couple of years considering the female performers of today are far more talented than those from the past, the fact remains that the majority of the company's Women's Division wrestlers are still very much Divas in every sense of the word - especially when it comes to their looks and appearance.
Just like the Trish Stratus', Sable's and Torrie Wilson's of the past, the current crop of WWE's females all spend countless hours in the makeup booth to perfect their external appearances - and considering they're in the "bright lights" so to speak, I guess it only makes sense to want to look their best. However, just like movie and television stars, WWE Superstars don't always look "glamorous", especially when off camera. Instead, they look like average people, and why shouldn't they? If you've ever wondered what the WWE's Women's Division wrestlers look like "au naturel" (without makeup), then you've come to the right place.
Stay tuned, as this list divulges 15 WWE Divas without their makeup on!
15 Nikki Bella
It looks like Nikki Bella is trying to establish herself as a celebrity figure versus a pro-wrestler considering her Dancing With The Stars stint and other appearances. If all else fails, modelling will always remain an option for Bella, as she has an incredibly large social media presence with over 6.5 million followers on Instagram.
I think it's safe to say that Nikki Bella's by far one of the most attractive WWE Divas of all time - though she doesn't always look as glamorous as she does on television or in her impressive photoshoots. Instead, Nikki looks like an average 33 year old woman, and this picture above of Bella posing "au naturel" is proof of that notion - although that's definitely not to say that she doesn't look good without any makeup on because she certainly does.
Despite being out of the WWE limelight for quite some time, Paige is still one of the most buzzed about women within Sports Entertainment - though often for all the wrong reasons. However, if rumours prove to be accurate, we may be seeing an in-ring Paige return sooner rather than later considering she returned to the WWE Performance Centre last month.
Although Paige isn't your stereotypical "Diva", there's no denying that she's still extremely gorgeous in her own special way - coincidentally, she's referred to as being "The Anti-Diva". However, like every other wrestling woman included on this list posing au naturel, Paige looks quite a lot different without her makeup on. It's clear that some of the Divas on this list will look better than others sans the makeup, and in Paige's case, I don't think that she looks bad at all without all the colour.
13 Eva Marie
Though it's obvious that Eva's by far one of the hottest Divas to grace a WWE ring in recent memory, that doesn't take away from the fact that she's also one of the least talented female wrestlers to ever grace a WWE ring. Vince McMahon tried and tried with Eva, but she proved to be a lost cause when it came to being a technically sound Women's Division wrestler.
However, Eva Marie is enjoying success outside the WWE, as she's currently working as a model (her Instagram has over 3 million followers), a YouTuber and an actress so she definitely keeping busy and productive. The picture above showcases what Eva looks like "au naturel" - perhaps a little bit of a shock for some of you.
Maryse is undoubtedly a blonde bombshell, and not surprisingly, she looks absolutely beautiful without any makeup on. The true determining factor as to how attractive a woman is how they appear without all the colour, and in Maryse's case, she's definitely attractive. This car selfie showcases The Miz's celebrated wife posing "au naturel" for her legions of fans to prove that she doesn't need a hundred pounds of makeup to look stunning.
It's not arguable that Maryse has added that certain "something" to The Miz following her return to the company after WrestleMania 32, and she has helped elevate "The A-Lister" to heights he hadn't seen in years. Of course most of this falls back on Miz's undeniable talent as a performer and mic worker, but the reality is that Maryse completed Miz as a package and thus made him seem like a bigger and more important attraction.
11 Nia Jax
Nia Jax is a monstrous force to be reckoned with - a breath of fresh air compared to most of the WWE's Women's Division wrestlers. Although the WWE hasn't really capitalized off of Nia at this point as a top Women's Division star, her future within the company is still bright just as long as the WWE books her soundly.
A Women's Championship run should be in the works for Nia in the near future, because the company has a talented performer who would add a bit of freshness to the Women's Title picture instead of the same old faces playing hot potato with the gold. Though Jax is a larger set woman, she's still very attractive, and even without all the makeup, she still looks quite beautiful. The photo above showcases Nia Jax posing in a revealing outfit "au naturel".
10 Mickie James
It's definitely great to witness the rise of a very talented Women's Division wrestler in the WWE - and you guessed it, that certain woman is none other than the former 5-time Women's Champion Mickie James. After months of being under-utilized and mistreated, Mickie will finally get her shot at a Women's Championship in WWE when she goes one-on-one against current champ Alexa Bliss at TLC this coming Sunday.
Alexa has constantly rambled on about Mickie's age (even though she's only in her mid 30's), and in my opinion, Mickie has never looked better. The photo above demonstrates what James looks "au naturel", and though she may not look quite as "robust" as she does on television, she certainly doesn't look bad. Mind you, this pic looks rather old, and as many of us have come to realize, Mickie's only improved in the looks department with age.
When you think of under-utilized current WWE Women's Division wrestlers, Emma definitely has to be one of the first names that comes to mind taking into account the fact that not only does Emma possess the looks Vince loves in his top Divas, but she also has the substance to back it up (in-ring talent). However, life's not always fair as we all know, and in Emma's case it's likely that she'll continue to be misused.
With Cody Rhodes paving the way for former mistreated WWE stars becoming success stories on the Independent wrestling scene, perhaps Emma will soon follow in Cody's footsteps if nothing improves. It's certainly not arguable that Emma ranks as being one of the company's most gorgeous Superstars, and even without all the color and glam, she still looks great in my opinion.
When Natalya won the SmackDown Women's Championship at the SummerSlam pay-per-view, I couldn't help but express my excitement with this decision. I've always felt as though Natty has been misused greatly throughout much of her WWE career, and it felt to me that her Women's Championship win was a reward for all that she's contributed to the business.
Of course I'm not always in favour of giving "deserving" wrestlers championship runs just because they "deserve it" in a sense. In Natalya's case, I thought it was a good choice on the company's part considering Natty is a talented performer who has proven that she's capable of hanging near the top. The picture above showcases what "The Queen Of Harts" looks like without all the makeup and colour, and like quite a few other Divas on this list, Natalya looks great.
To change up the pace a little bit, I decided to add in this picture of the legendary Hall Of Fame Women's Division wrestler Lita posing "au naturel" in what I believe to be a mugshot photograph. I think the main reason I thought this pic would be fitting for this article is to prove just how important makeup can be and is for certain WWE Divas.
As you can probably tell at first glance, Lita definitely looks different (in a rather unflattering way) without all the colour and makeup. However, considering this wasn't just any ordinary "no makeup" picture and was instead a mugshot, I think it's clear that Lita looked a little extra bland. That being said, when Lita's fully made-up, she couldn't look any more luscious, and she has proved this notion to be true whenever she appears on WWE television.
The former SmackDown Women's Champion Naomi looks almost identical to how she does when she's all made-up, and yes, this is of course a good thing. Naomi's naturally beautiful, and though she looks great with the extra glam and colour, she certainly doesn't need it to look attractive. It's been a great year for Naomi thus far, and I'm happy to see that she's being utilized to her fullest potential instead of being an afterthought compared to the rest of the Women's Division.
Perhaps Naomi can sometimes come across as a bit clunky, but overall, she's a great athletic talent who deserves to be showcased in the spotlight. Hopefully the WWE continue to present Naomi as a star moving forward into 2018, because she's undoubtedly an asset to the division and has proven to possess what it takes to remain a focal point.
5 Alicia Fox
The most newsworthy buzz in months regarding Alicia Fox is the fact that she now has her very own WWE merchandise - well deserved I might add. It's clear that Alicia's far from being on the same level technically as women's wrestlers such as Sasha Banks, Charlotte Flair or Bayley, but the fact remains that Fox is still pretty underrated and misused. It's actually quite shocking to me that Alicia Fox has been in the WWE for as long as she has considering she has been an afterthought for a large portion of her career. However, Alicia still has one Divas Championship reign under her belt, so there's always that possibility that the WWE realizes that they could do more with her. Alicia Fox is showcased above posing without any makeup on, and she looks great if you ask me. Less flashy obviously, but still pleasant and attractive.
4 Charlotte Flair
Like most WWE Divas, Charlotte Flair has a love for selfies, and the selfie above highlights what "The Queen" looks like without a full face of makeup. As we continue to work our way down this list of WWE women posing au naturel, one thing's becoming increasingly clear - very few WWE Divas look noticeably "bad" without makeup, they simply look less flashy. Despite the fact that few fans rank Charlotte as being one of the "hotter" Women's Division wrestlers, I doubt you could say that she isn't good looking to say the very least.
If there's one thing Charlotte has going for her, it's the fact that she's physically superior to pretty well all other WWE Divas, as she couldn't be in any better condition. It's only a matter of time before "The Genetically Superior Athlete" reclaims the Women's Championship, and it will probably be sooner rather than later.
Lana undoubtedly ranks as being one of the hottest WWE Women's Division wrestlers, and she still does "au naturel". The above photo showcases Lana smiling for an airplane selfie without any makeup on, and like many fans have come to realize, Lana still looks truly "ravishing" without any of the colour.
Though Lana is far from being one of the most gifted women's wrestlers currently performing today, she certainly adds a level of hotness to the division regardless - probably one of the reasons as to why Vince McMahon has promoted Lana to being a singles star versus a valet. However, things haven't been working out so great when it comes to Lana's solo career, as she has nowhere near "taken the division by storm" since her arrival. That said, Lana still has some potential, so fans shouldn't totally turn on "The Ravishing Russian" just yet.
2 Brie Bella
Here we have a photograph of Brie Bella posing alongside her husband Daniel Bryan "au naturel" in the truest sense of the word. It doesn't look like Brie had even done her hair, and this shows Brie's level of comfortably and confidence in herself and her appearance. Of course she isn't nearly as colourful as she is on WWE television, Total Divas or Total Bellas, but for looking like she had just "rolled out of bed" so to speak, I'd have to argue and say that Brie Bella looks great. Rumours currently suggest that Brie has plans to return to the ring as early as the beginning of 2018, and I'm sure her loyal fans are very happy to hear this positive news - if only her husband Daniel was able to follow suit though.
1 Alexa Bliss
Alexa Bliss is arguably the hottest Women's Division wrestler in the WWE today, so it's only fitting that she takes the number 1 position on this list. As you'd probably expect, Alexa Bliss still looks fantastic without all the makeup, and this falls back on how attractive Bliss truly is.
It's definitely been a success story for Alexa Bliss following her debut on the company's main roster last year, as she's become the top Women's Division wrestler over on Monday Night Raw after already having a successful stint on SmackDown. It's clear that the WWE are firmly behind Alexa as a top tier star (the same cannot be said for talent such as Sasha Banks who constantly suffer from the dreaded start-top pushes), and she'll probably have a career very similar to Trish Stratus with many Women's Championship reigns.
