There are few organizations in the world that employ more beautiful women than World Wrestling Entertainment. Truthfully, there are gorgeous women scattered throughout the business of professional wrestling, even outside the WWE. The sport's list of female talent throughout the years has featured some of the most attractive ladies in the entire universe. Many of these lovely females have dabbled in modeling prior to entering the world of professional wrestling. Moreover, their natural beauty combined with countless hours spent in the gym has made many of these girls highly photogenic.
Creating a list featuring every beautiful woman that has ever stepped inside the squared circle would take days. With that in mind, let's narrow it down to the very best.
We have all heard the expression "blondes have more fun." However, there is also an old saying that goes: "Blonde girls are pretty, Red girls are smart, but only a brunette can steal a boy's heart." Furthermore, when you look back at the history of the wrestling business it's hard to deny that many of the sport's hottest females also happen to be brunettes.
Of course, you certainly don't need to take my word for it. Instead, take a look at these 15 jaw-dropping photos of the hottest brunettes in wrestling history!
15 Stephanie McMahon
Besides being incredibly beautiful, Stephanie McMahon also has the distinction of being the most powerful woman in the entire professional wrestling industry. The daughter of Vince McMahon and granddaughter of Vince McMahon Senior will likely be one of, if not the, leading figures promoting WWE in the very near future.
Like her father, Stephanie also plays an excellent heel authority figure on television. However, unlike Vince, she is able to add a great deal of sex appeal to the role. The Billion Dollar Princess is now 40 years old and still one of the hottest females on the entire WWE roster. She has brains, brawn and is most certainly a hot brunette. The current Chief Brand Officer of WWE definitely has a lot going for her.
Unfortunately, most of the discussion surrounding Paige these days centers around the recently leaked adult images of the Total Divas star. Despite the controversy surrounding the former Divas and NXT Women's Champion, there is no denying she is still one of the hottest females in the world of professional wrestling.
The native of Norwich, England has already accomplished a great deal in the WWE, despite being only 24 years of age. Paige even briefly held the Divas Championship and the NXT Women's title at the same time.
She is also known for having relatively pale skin. While many of wrestling hottest divas spend hours on the beach or in tanning booths, Paige goes with a more natural look. The young Brit proves that pale can certainly be sexy.
13 Nikki Bella
The future Mrs. John Cena is no stranger to making headlines or turning heads. Nikki Bella is known as being the curvier member of The Bella Twins. She also stars in the E! Reality television show, Total Bellas. The show centers around her relationship with the starlet’s current boyfriend turned fiancé, John Cena.
Don’t let her looks fool you, though, Bella is more than just a pretty face, she's also a very accomplished wrestler. In fact, she holds the record for the longest title reign of any Divas Champion, having held the strap for an impressive 301 days. The stunning brunette was also named Diva of the Year by Rolling Stone back in 2015. There is no doubt that Nikki Bella is one of the hottest non-blondes to ever set foot in a WWE ring.
12 Brie Bella
If you prefer your Bellas a little less curvy, then Brie Bella may be just the girl for you. Brie is the twin sister of her fellow Total Bellas co-star, Nikki Bella. Brie hasn’t had some of the enchantments her sister has and as a bit leaner in certain areas, making the sisters easily distinguishable.
The former Divas Champion previously dated Richie Kotzen, an ex-member of the rock band Poison. She is currently married to WWE legend Daniel Bryan, and the two are expecting a child sometime in April of 2017. Due to her recent pregnancy, Bella hasn’t been competing in the WWE ,and it is not clear if she will be returning once her child is born. That being said, even if she never sets foot in the ring again, she will still easily go down as one of the hottest women in wrestling.
11 Mandy Leon
If you aren’t currently watching Ring of Honor Wrestling, Mandy Leon is one of the many reasons you might want to check it out. The 5-foot-6 raven-haired beauty might be the hottest female wrestler who hasn’t been signed by either WWE or TNA. However, some hardcore WWE fans out there may remember her as one of Adam Rose’s Rosebuds.
In Ring of Honor, Leon portrays a sort of sexy witch-like character. She is only 25 years old and her in-ring work is definitely improving. It is probably only a matter of time before she shows up on WWE’s developmental program NXT. In the meantime, Ring of Honor fans can enjoy one of the sexiest young female prospects in the sport of professional wrestling.
Chyna was one of the most groundbreaking and controversial women in the history of professional wrestling. She was also a very beautiful lady in her prime.
The “Ninth Wonder of the World” was the first female to ever hold the prestigious Intercontinental Championship. Moreover, she is also the first woman to ever enter the Royal Rumble match. Despite being the ex-girlfriend of Stephanie McMahon’s current husband Triple H, her accomplishments will still likely warrant an induction into the WWE Hall of Fame at some point.
After her career in WWE ended, she struggled with drug addiction, and also began a career as an adult entertainer. Tragically, Chyna, whose real name is Joan Laurer, passed away on April 17, 2016. The former Women’s Champion was just 46 years of age. Chyna was without a doubt one of the hottest women of the Attitude Era.
9 Sasha Banks
It is fair to say that Sasha Banks’s hair color isn’t actually pink. When you take away all the hair dye, “The Boss” is actually a brunette and a pretty good looking one at that. Banks has become one of the rising stars in not only the women’s division, but WWE in general. She is arguably the best all-around female performer in the company not named Charlotte Flair.
Sasha Banks real name is Mercedes Kaestner-Varnado, and she is the cousin of hip-hop star Snoop Dogg. She is also related to singers Brandy and Ray-J, so apparently, superstardom runs in the family. Besides being a three-time Raw Women’s Champion, Banks is also the first woman (along with Charlotte Flair) to headline a WWE pay-per-view event. The stunning 25-year-old's wrestling career has only just begun and fans will likely enjoy watching her perform for years to come.
8 Gail Kim
Gail Kim is a great example of a veteran performer who still looks as good as she did the day she debuted. The Canadian-born beauty is still one of the best-looking females in wrestling, despite being 40 years of age.
The stunning brunette had only modest success in WWE, though Kim would go on to have an amazing career with Impact Wrestling. She is a six-time Knockouts Champion and was even the first female to be inducted into the TNA Hall of Fame. She is also the current wife of celebrity chef and star of the hit television show Dinner Impossible, Robert Irvine. An argument can be made that Gail Kim is one of the best female performers of the last decade.

Bayley is such a fun loving teddy-bear-like character that it's easy to forget that she also quite the hottie. The serial hugger and current Raw Women's Champion has made quite the impact in WWE since becoming a full-time member of the Raw roster. Bayley went on to further cement her legacy by defending her title at WrestleMania 33.
The 27-year-old California native is engaged to indie wrestler Aaron Solow. Her warm smile and playful demeanor have helped Bayley win the hearts of wrestling fans of all ages. Moreover, the reigning champ always appears to be in excellent physical condition. When discussing the hottest brunettes in wrestling history, Bayley shouldn't be overlooked. There are definitely more than a few folks out there who wouldn't mind getting a hug from this gorgeous star.
6 Miss Elizabeth
If you grew up in the 1980s, watching wrestling as a young lad, then there is a good chance you may have had a poster of Miss Elizabeth somewhere on your bedroom wall.
Elizabeth is probably best known as the valet for her former (real-life) husband "Macho Man" Randy Savage. The Kentucky native was one of the few women who appeared on TV for WWE in the mid-to-late-80s. Savage and Elizabeth would eventually divorce.
She would go on to sign with WCW in the late-1990s and was even a member of the nWo. Sadly, Elizabeth passed away in 2003, due to acute toxicity. She was dating wrestler Lex Luger at the time. Miss Elizabeth is remembered fondly by wrestling fans as one of the premier female stars of the 1980's.
5 Brooke Tessmacher
Brooke Tessmacher is another example of a performer who didn't have much success in WWE but went on to have a very nice run in TNA/Impact Wrestling. She is also known for having one of the best backsides in the business.
Tessmacher appeared briefly in WWE as part of Kelly Kelly's Extreme Expose. After she left WWE, the curvy brunette signed with TNA, where she would go on to become a three- time Knockouts Champion. She is also known for her appearance on the hit reality television show The Amazing Race. There are some wrestling fans that may not realize she used to date former TNA star Robbie E.

4 AJ Lee
While many wrestlers tend to stay in the business well past their primes, AJ is an example of a person who may have retired a bit too soon. The current wife of CM Punk is still only 30 years old. She left WWE back in 2015 due to backstage politics involving her husband and the company.
Lee was an excellent all-around performer who worked well both in the ring and on the microphone. She also briefly served as Monday Night Raw's on-screen General Manager. If attractive female authority figures are your thing, then be sure to check out Top 15 Hottest Authority Figures In Wrestling History. And if we truly have seen the last of AJ Lee in a WWE ring, it would be a shame for one of wrestling hottest brunettes to have called it quits so soon.
Looking back on her career in WWE it's hard to believe that Melina was eliminated in the first round of the company's reality show, Tough Enough. In her prime, she was known for her signature split into the ring from underneath the bottom rope. She started out as a manager for the tag team MNM before winning multiple Women's Championships as a singles competitor.
The former champ dated fellow wrestler Johnny Nitro aka John Morrison for several years, though the two eventually split up. Today Melina actually dyes her hair gray. However, it is likely most fans will remember her as the stunning brunette she was in her heyday. The 38-year-old currently resides in California and is still wrestling on the independent circuit.
The 5-foot-tall English stunner had quite a memorable run in the WWE. She debuted with the organization as a contestant and the eventual winner of the company's Diva Search contest. Layla is a former Divas Champion who worked in WWE for close to a decade. The pinnacle of her career was probably as a member of LayCool, a tag team that consisted of Layla and former wrestler Michelle McCool. LayCool was the team that bullied Mickie James in the now-infamous "Piggie James" storyline.
In 2015, Layla announced her retirement from the sport of professional wrestling. Today she resides in Phoenix, Arizona and is currently married to fellow wrestler Ricky Ortiz. It would be hard to find a better-looking woman in wrestling then Layla in her prime.
Victoria, or Tara for the TNA/Impact fans out there, was one of hottest female wrestlers of her day. In fact, at age 46, the former champ still looks pretty darn good. At just under 5-foot-8 and weighing around 15o pounds, Victoria was often larger than many of the women she competed against. However, she was always in tremendous physical condition and looked every bit as good as her more petite counterparts.
Victoria, whose real name is Lisa Marie Varon, held multiple titles in both WWE and TNA. She wrestled virtually every big name female star in the last decade including names like Trish Stratus, Mickie James, and Gail Kim. Today she still makes appearances and wrestles on the independent circuit. Varon certainly belongs on the list of wrestling's hottest brunettes.
