Notice the specificity of the title. "We Wish Would Pose" is necessary because in a few more short months, Playboy magazine will not longer feature fully nude women. Furthermore, WWE no long allows Divas to do such things after a slight re-branding back in the late 2000s. Other companies are switching gears to, trying to keep up with Playboy changing their own game. Starbucks is going to now sell vacuum cleaners and Chevrolet is no longer going to produce trucks, but will now be opening up a chain of grocery stores. Alright, those two are jokes, but Playboy not showing fully nude women is kind of ridiculous. I mean, after all, it became famous for satisfying that very niche.
But the change for Playboy makes sense. Men can now type a few words into a search engine and see infinitely dirtier things than the magazine can offer. The publication will still feature gorgeous women, but with slightly more clothing. In short, it sounds like Playboy will now be a high-brow Maxim. No offense to Maxim, but be real, we all read their publication in junior high.
With regard to the world of wrestling, there was a pseudo tradition between 1999 and about 2008 during which the beautiful women of wrestling posed for the magazine. Sable was the first, back in 1999 (twice), followed by Chyna (also twice for some reason, this is before her brief adult career), Torrie Wilson (again, twice), then Christy Hemme, Candice Michelle, Ashley Massaro and finally Maria Kanellis in 2008. The main reason for the end of the Divas posing nude is the fact that the WWE has tried to enlarge their fanbase to a younger crowd, especially those too young to read such a publication. In short, it's a PG product now.
It's been years since a WWE diva has posed for the magazine, but we had fond memories and many fans held high hopes. Alas, unless another publication starts getting the lovely ladies of wrestling to disrobe and WWE backs off on the whole "PG thing," we may never again get to enjoy a golden age of Diva nudity like we did in the past. Here are fifteen current Divas we'd love to see pose nude. If we left anyone out or you don't like the ordering, you can let us know in the comments but we might not see it because we're too busy looking at hot divas. We'll include NXT divas because, why not?
15 Eva Marie
12 Sasha Banks
After making a name for herself in smaller promotions around the New England area, Sasha Banks was brought on board in 2012. Three years with NXT saw her in some memorable matches against some of the other amazing ladies on this list. Early in 2015, she won the NXT Women's Championship before being brought up to the main WWE roster and having her debut back in the summer.
10 Dana Brooke
8 Becky Lynch
7 Alicia Fox
6 Peyton Royce
5 Summer Rae
Paige was almost nude as part of a storyline earlier this year on Raw when the Bella Twins (spoiler alert, more on them later) took her clothes as a prank. Her family owned and ran a wrestling promotion in England in which she started competing when she was just thirteen years old. She's been in the business for about ten years and is one of the WWE's most beloved stars. She was the NXT Women's Champ and during her Raw debut in April of last year, she won the Divas' Championship from AJ Lee, who would win it back just a couple of months later.
2 The Bella Twins
1 Alexa Bliss
The smallest member of our list, NXT star Alexa Bliss stands at just 5'1 and is billed as weighing just over 100 lbs. That's right, our number one is from the developmental program and hopefully that means she'll be around for a while.
There is something undeniably alluring about an athletic beauty who packs power and capability into such a small package. She's been into athletics all her life, playing baseball, cheerleading and has been a bodybuilder. While just about anyone who has ever looked at her wants to see everything she has going on, the best we have so far are bikini pics from her modeling days. Earlier this year some doctored photos circulated online briefly that were modified to look like her. She was not pleased (nor should she have been).
