The Attitude Era brought excitement, violence, and, of course, puppies to millions of fans around the globe. It’s an era that may never be duplicated and if you did live through it, you’re one lucky son-of-a-gun. Besides all of the blood, crude humor, and reality based scenes the WWE would play out, they also showcased the hotness of beautiful women.
Starting with Sable and The Kat, the Attitude Era would end with ladies like Trish Stratus, Stacy Keibler and Torrie Wilson showcasing their assets to the WWE Universe. It seemed every week, every month, every year the WWE would try to top what it already had done. This made many prepubescent boys realizes what they’ll be in store for in the future as well as make those who already are men, even happier.
Sex sells and it really sold in the Attitude Era. We can’t imagine Bayley or Becky Lynch in a bra and panties match, but if they were around in that era, they would have been in one. We also know there may be a lot of raunchy stuff that may not have made it to the list, even though we kept the list between 1997 and 2002. Make sure you have a glass of water by your side and prepare to feel the hotness.
20 The Kat Versus Tori - Chocolate Pudding Match
The Kat was the Women’s Champion at the time and she was involved in the inaugural pudding match against Tori on an episode of Raw in 1999. She already came out in a smoking hot bikini, but her opponent wasn’t ready for the fight. Stephanie McMahon proceeded to tell Tori to come out in her bra and panties, which is something all the fans cheered for.
If you love the pudding match scene in the classic comedy movie Stripes, then you'll love this match. Fans got to witness two attractive women duke it out in a pool full of pudding, what more can you want? By the end of the match, X-Pac, Lillian Garcia, and Kane ended up with pudding on them. It was one sloppy booking if you catch our drift.
19 Trish Stratus Versus Jacqueline - Spanking Match
If you’re into that 50 Shades of Grey stuff, then this match is the one for you. At the height of the Trish Stratus and Jacqueline feud, they competed in a spanking match on an episode of Raw around the turn of the century. The match was pretty hardcore as both wrestlers smacked the hell out of each other with straps.
Like we said, if you’re into the 50 Shades of Grey lifestyle, this match was made for you. The encounter would end when Kurt Angle came down to the ring to help Trish. He would pull her out of the ring, but Jackie would grab her pants and expose Trish’s bottom. Jacqueline would then unleash a whipping on Stratus’s behind, which she probably still feels to this day.
18 Trish Stratus & Lita Versus Torrie Wilson & Stacy Keibler - Bra And Panties Match
Many fans hated the Invasion angle after Vince McMahon bought WCW. Fans of the angle can make a point that we wouldn’t have such exciting matches like this one. With Mick Foley as the special guest referee, Trish Stratus and Lita faced Torrie Wilson and Stacy Keibler in a bra and panties match at Invasion in 2001. If you don’t know the rules of this match, you must strip your opponent down to their bra and panties to get the win.
Who doesn’t like four beautiful women beating the hell out of each other until their down to their bra and panties? The match lasted a little over five minutes but we doubt anyone was counting. How could you when the hottest women in the industry are getting their clothes ripped off right before your eyes? Bang! Bang!
17 Trish Stratus Versus Stacy Keibler - Paddle On A Pole Match
On October 10th, 2002, WWE fans got to witness one of the hottest stipulation matches ever created in the wrestling industry. It was the Bra and Panties with a Paddle on a Pole match and no, Vince Russo wasn’t with the company at that time. It also involved two of the hottest women to ever compete in a wrestling ring, Trish Stratus and Stacy Keibler.
The stakes were very high as the Women's Championship was on the line. The match started off as a normal one, however, clothing soon began to come off. Trish won the match by ripping off Keibler’s shorts and she even flashed her bare bottom at Stacy right after, but the match was over. Trish would then smack the bare bottom of Keibler, which made for one hot encounter.
16 The Kat Versus Terri Runnels - Stinkface Match
At SummerSlam 2000, the fans were treated to an epic Tables, Ladders, and Chairs match that revolutionized and transcended the sport. You would think that the act that had to follow would be a stinker. It was far from the stinker you’re thinking, as The Kat faced Terri Runnels in the first ever Stinkface match. Both competitors had a long history of feuding and this match would be the climax of their feud.
Each lady wore lingerie to spice things up and put on a decent match for what it’s worth. The Kat, being the babyface, wore a tight white thong and bra, while Terri had a beautiful red two-piece outfit. Apparently, Perry Saturn didn’t like the idea of Terri showing her goods, but the fans got to see the action anyway. The conclusion had The Kat stick her backside into the face of Terri and winning the match.
15 Sable Versus Luna Vachon - Evening Gown Match
We got to show some respect for the first ever evening gown match because if it wasn’t for the success of that match, we wouldn’t have all the other absurd matches that have come since. Sable and Luna Vachon rocked the house at Unforgiven 1998 when both went toe-to-toe in lingerie. Sure, Luna wasn't the most aesthetically looking Diva to come through the industry, but, Sable more than made up for it.
The match lasted under three minutes, but fans got to see why Brock Lesnar fell in love with Sable. Both competitors wore black gowns, but when Luna won the match, fans got to see Sable wearing some tight and colorful clothing. Nothing can be more satisfying than seeing Sable perform her finisher in a G-string and bra.
14 Torrie Wilson Versus Stacy Keibler - Swimsuit Competition
Who doesn’t like competition? It brings the best out of both competitors and makes an event that much better. That’s why when Torrie Wilson and Stacy Keibler were in a swimsuit competition, no one thought it was a bad idea. On an episode of SmackDown in May of 2002, Keibler and Wilson showed off their assets to the WWE Universe. With Tazz as the host, Wilson was first up.
She was wearing a pink silk robe and as she disrobed, Tajiri came in and stopped her. Keibler declared herself the winner, but Tazz decided she needed to show the goods, which the fans cheered for. Keibler wasn’t going to strip, but then Trish Stratus came out in her own robe. Things only got better as fans got to see Stratus show off her body in some sexy lingerie.
13 Lita Versus Trish Stratus - Bra and Panties Match
The Golden Era of women’s wrestling wasn’t always about wrestling. Both Trish Stratus and Lita are pioneers of the industry and should be respected in every way, however, we also have to recognize that they used their sexuality to get the ratings up. In the good ol’ days of Raw, there would be some incredible matches that weren’t expected when you tuned in that Monday Night. Case in point, in October of 2000, when Lita and Stratus had a bra and panties match on Raw.
The match was physical, but very short and Lita would beat Trish. The best part was seeing them strip off their clothes, but the not-so-best part was Ivory debuting as the newest member of Right to Censor when they crashed the ending. The temperature in that building must have gone down several degrees after Ivory’s debut in the new stable.
12 The Kat's Christmas Gift
On the Christmas episode of Raw in 2000, The Kat decided to treat the commentary team (Jim Ross and Jerry Lawler) to an early Christmas gift. Coming down in nothing but a red robe and a stocking cap, The Kat gave Ross a videotape of the Divas newest content, but treated King to something better. As the music played, Kat would get on the announcer table and reveal a ton of skin.
The outfit was more than just revealing a portion of her assets. If only we had HD television back then. It's absolutely one of the best, if not the greatest Christmas outfit ever to be worn in the WWE. In real life, King and The Kat were an item at that time, so we’re pretty sure Jerry received some more presents from Kat after the show.
11 Torrie Wilson Versus Stacy Keibler - Lingerie Match
Maybe the greatest thing to ever come out of the WCW/WWE merger was these two beautiful and legendary Divas. Torrie Wilson and Stacy Keibler could make the hardest personalities melt in their hand, that’s how beautiful they are. Keibler has the stunning long legs and Wilson’s frame is to die for. When the company decided to have a lingerie match between Wilson and Keibler at No Mercy 2001, the fans acted as if they received an early birthday present.
Millions of jaws dropped to the floor when both Divas came out in their lingerie. Wilson sported all red while Keibler was in black. The match lasted just three minutes, insert sexual innuendo joke, and Wilson won, however, the real winner of that night had to be the fans.
10 Torrie Wilson Versus Dawn Marie - Lingerie Showdown
Torrie Wilson and Dawn Marie have been in some tantalizing vignettes and scenes, but one of the best is from an episode of SmackDown in October of 2002. With Tazz as the host, he first introduced Torrie Wilson. She would come out in a white robe while sucking on red liquorice. Marie would come down in a black robe and the stage would be set.
After Tazz broke down the rules, both competitors would show off their lingerie. Marie had on an eye-popping two piece lingerie outfit on, but Wilson once again destroyed her competition. This time, Wilson was wearing a white one-piece that showed a lot more than Marie’s attire. Even though Wilson won, we’re pretty sure the fans were excited for both Divas.
9 Stacy Keibler Becomes Vince McMahon's Assistant
Mr. McMahon is such a boss. You can hate him all you want, but we both know you would gladly take his spot for a day. Vince has never been shy to interject himself into storylines, particularly those dealing with steamy moments. On an episode of SmackDown in April of 2002, Vince was looking to hire an assistant.
He set up his desk in the middle of the ring and decided to bring the applicants down, one by one. Vince wasn’t digging any of the applicants until Stacy Keibler’s music hit and she came down to the ring. The long legged hottie then went on to say she wasn’t going to tell Vince her qualifications, but show him instead. Keibler then decided to perform a lap dance which no one objected to. She was hired on the spot.
8 Debra's Sultry Striptease
It was a cold winter night on December 13th, 1998, in Vancouver, British Columbia but things were heating up inside the General Motors Place when Debra, the valet of Jeff Jarrett, had to strip in front of thousands of fans. It all started in a feud between Goldust and Jarrett when both competitors decided that if Goldust lost, he would have to strip, and if Jarrett lost, Debra would do the dirty deed.
After Jarrett won (Debra distracted the referee), everyone thought Goldust would bear it all. The commissioner at the time, Shawn Michaels, came down to the ring and announced Jarrett had been disqualified due to Debra’s heelish ways. Debra would strip down to her bra and panties, however, Jarrett and a pesky Blue Blazer would end it before the fans could see it all.
7 Trish Stratus and Her Love For Tables
In 2000, Test and Albert were in a feud with The Dudley Boyz that culminated at Backlash with Stratus getting power bombed through a table. At the time, Trish was the manager of T&A. Leading up to the contest, Trish would film erotic vignettes that included tables. She would be caressing them all the while telling the audience what type of tables there are in the world.
It doesn’t take a genius to figure out she was using the tables as a metaphor for the male anatomy. What also made the vignettes incredibly entertaining is the lingerie she would wear. Even though Stratus went through a table, Test and Albert would win the feud. We think more people were more upset that Stratus wouldn’t be on tables anymore than The Dudley Boyz losing.
6 The Preacher's Wife: A Film By Val Venis
If you know who Val Venis is, then you know this film is for adults only. In September of 1998, Venis and Dustin Runnels (Goldust) were in a heated feud. Dustin decided to get rid of his Goldust act and become a preacher of God. Val didn’t like his preaching about the steamy vignettes and acts he participated in, so he decided to make a film that he knew would upset Dustin.
The video started off with a shot of Venis in a bed. While he smoked a cigar, he talked about wanting his aches and pains to go away. He also had his shirt off and sheets covering the waist down. Then, Dustin’s wife Terri, popped out of the sheets, before going back under, giving the impression that she was pleasuring Venis. Only in the Attitude Era.
5 Trish Stratus Being A Bad Girl
During the Trish Stratus and Vince McMahon storyline, Trish wanted to gain the attention of her boss. While Vince was upset that Trish was going to be in the corner of Kurt Angle during an episode of SmackDown, Trish decided to tell the boss that she’d been very bad. She was so bad, she asked Vince for a spanking. As soon as she said that, the crowd went wild and so did Vince.
We never got to see the spanking, but the thought of it had fans going nuts. On a side note, it’s good to be the boss. The interactions between Trish and Vince would lead to some of the most memorable feuds involving Stratus and the McMahon family, while also leading to a few terrible moments that fans would like to forget (Trish barking like a dog).
4 Jacqueline's Wardrobe Malfunction
In December of 1998, the WWE decided to have a UK-only PPV called Capital Carnage. The fans got to witness legends like Stone Cold Steve Austin, The Rock, Mick Foley, The Undertaker, and Triple H work their craft, however, nothing they did was as memorable as what happened with Jacqueline.
Jacqueline was on the shoulders of referee Tim White during their match when Sable ripped off her shirt. Jacqueline wasn’t wearing anything underneath and the London crowd got to see her bare chest With a star-studded line-up for the event, Jacqueline’s wardrobe malfunction is what the event ended up being most famous for. This was WWE's version of Janet Jackson’s nipple slip at Super Bowl XXXVIII’s halftime show. What happens in London, doesn’t stay in London.
3 Real-Life Mardi Gras
It’s one thing for the WWE to have their employees tease the audience with sensual and titillating scenes, however, it’s a whole other ball game when you can get women in the crowd to act like it's Mardi Gras. During the Attitude Era, nothing seemed off limits and, on one particular night, Triple H enticed a beautiful blonde to bear it all.
As the D-Generation X music was blasting through the arena, Triple H pointed to a fan wearing a Stone Cold Steve Austin shirt and motioned for her to take off the shirt. She obliged and fans got to see the color of her bra. You would think it would stop there, but obviously it didn't. Triple H then encouraged her to go the full nine yards and the fan did, exposing her chest to thousands of cheering fans.
2 The Kat's Impromptu Strip
Stacy "The Kat" Carter may have won the Women’s Title in a Four-Way Evening Gown Pool match at Armageddon 1999, but her actions after the match will be what lives on in infamy. The contestants involved were Ivory, Jacqueline, B.B. and Carter with legends Mae Young and Fabulous Moolah as special guest referees. To win the match, the contestant had to keep their evening gown dress on while tearing off the clothes of their opponents.
The Kat came out on top and quickly got the crowd going when she spontaneously decided to strip naked for her fans. She even chastised the WWE for making her wear underwear. With thousands watching in the stands and millions glued to the television at home, Carter took off her white bra for the whole world to see. A quick thinking Sgt. Slaughter covered her with a towel, but the damage was already done.
1 Sable's Bikini Outfit
Once again, the WWE and Sable shattered the glass ceiling on what was allowed in the wrestling industry. At Fully Loaded 1998, Sable entered a bikini contest with Hall of Famer Jacqueline in a bikini contest. The feud started when Marc Mero and Jacqueline started working together in an effort to hurt Sable. Sable, once the valet of Mero, didn’t like all the trash talking she was receiving from the duo.
Leading up to contest, Sable could get the fan's blood boiling, however, she took it to another level that night. Jacqueline would come out in a red erotic swimsuit, revealing a lot of skin. It was as if she was wearing dental floss, however, Sable one-upped her, wearing paint in the shape of hands on her chest. Rightfully so, the crowd and Jerry Lawler went into a frenzy.
