When it comes to the WWE, some of the hottest women in the history of the wrestling industry have played a major role in grabbing the attention of the male (and female) fan base. Whether playing the role of valet or actual in-ring talent, these beautiful ladies have been an integral part of storylines for a long time.
Let's face it, despite claims that many fans have been using the women's/Divas matches as bathroom breaks or opportunity to head to the fridge/concession, many warm blooded fans are tuning in week after week to check out what these lovely ladies have to offer. Whether it be in the form of actual wrestling abilities (see the current Women's Division) or just pure eye candy (late 90s-2010), Vince McMahon has brought a lineup of some of the most beautiful women to TV screens around the world.
Sure the era of Bra & Panties matches, or Lingerie Pillow Fights or the classic water balloon match between Torrie Wilson and Candice Michelle will leave an ever lasting image in every fanboy's mental Rolodex, but that time period will probably not be seen ever again, at least until Linda McMahon quits politics. What we have in place, however, is a roster of beautiful, athletic women who have proven time and again that given the opportunity, they can perform equally to their male counterparts. While more of the focus in on their in-ring talents, it doesn't mean that these following ladies aren't afraid to tease us with their lovely lady lumps and shake what their mama gave em.
*Eva Marie, Ms All Red Everything would have made the list, but due to having to wash her hair, she is not available to perform tonight.*
15 Miss Elizabeth
It really doesn't get any more wholesome and goody-goody than Miss Elizabeth, who was as sweet and pure as Mrs. June Cleaver, unless you consider her ringside strut in red undergarments from SummerSlam 1988 to be risque (which at that time it could have been). Although she may have doffed her dress to distract Andre the Giant and Ted Dibiase, the wholesomeness of Randy Savage's manager screamed PG.
14 14. Brie Bella
After making her debut with the WWE in 2008, the more natural looking of the Bella twins put her career on hold to raise a family with husband Bryan Danielson (aka Daniel Bryan). Although her career in the ring and with fans may not have been as successful as her sister, Brie is able to claim that she was once a Divas Champion for a run of 70 days, before losing the belt to Kelly Kelly in 2011.
At 34 years old, the highly underrated and beautiful Nattie Neidhart is one of the veteran females on the WWE roster. Making her debut on a 2008 episode of SmackDown, Natalya spent her early years as a heel, despite using The Sharpshooter as her finishing move, a finisher made famous by her uncle Bret Hart. Neidhart would go on to team up with her real -life cousin David Hart Smith and boyfriend/husband Tyson Kidd to form The Hart Dynasty, a faction that would last for nearly a year.
Since that time, Nattie has seen nearly as many heel/face changes and horrible storylines as Big Show. Sandwiched between silly storylines, Natalya captured her one and only Divas title during a handicap match against Layla and Michelle McCool at the 2010 Survivor Series. Equally as sad as some of her storylines, Vince McMahon did not even have the dignity to have Natalya lose her championship via a pinfall, as Eve Torres won it in a Fatal Four Way pinning Layla.
In her first match on RAW following WrestleMania XXX, Paige would upset then champion AJ Lee and capture her first Divas Championship. Not too bad considering that she also was in possession of the NXT Women's Championship, a feat that nobody has accomplished since.
Rocking a punk rock/goth/rebel type outfit, complete with fishnet stockings, Paige was the youngest wrestler in history to hold the title, at the ripe age of 21 years old. Setting up a rivalry with Lee, the pair put together one of the best storylines in the Divas Division in a long time, far before the Revolution.
Okay, her former finishing move, The Rear View, could possibly go down in history as one of the worst in wrestling history, the odds are high that there are a number of fans that wouldn't mind losing a match to Trinity Fatu this way and would be proud to brag about it. As a former cheerleader/dancer for the Orlando Magic, Naomi made her first appearance on NXT in 2011. At the beginning of 2012, Naomi would make her first appearance on the flagship show as part of The Funkadactyls, who along with Cameron would dance and escort Brodus Clay to the ring.
10 10 . Lillian Garcia
The next two entrants may not be classified as WWE wrestling talents, but both ring announcers were as popular with male fans as their wrestling counterparts. Garcia began her career introducing Monday Night Raw matches in August 1999 and would become one of the longest tenured ring announcers and female performers, staying with the company for just a shade over a decade.
9 Brandi Rhodes
Eden Stiles or Brandi Rhodes took over the mantel of WWE's sexiest ring announcer after signing a contract in 2011 and working her way up from Superstars to NXT to SmackDown. While she would ask for a release from her contract after only two years, Rhodes would return to her role as a ring announcer in 2013 and again working up the ladder from NXT to SmackDown to Raw and eventually WrestleMania 31.
She may be well known for her comment on WWE Tough Enough, stating that her favorite wrestling match was one that featured Melina taking on Alicia Fox, which from an eye candy point of view may not have been that bad of a choice. After taking part in the WWE Diva Search, then her stint on Tough Enough, Ariane Andrew would sign a talent contract in 2011 and find herself teaming up with Naomi as part of The Funkadactyls.
7 Sasha Banks
Mercedes Kaestner-Varnado, aka The Boss, aka Sasha Banks, is one of the hottest wrestlers in the ring today. How one interprets the word hot, is completely up to them. You could be talking about her well toned body or you could be talking about her ability to perform in some of the most entertaining and ground breaking women's matches in the history of the WWE, such as a pair of 30 minute Iron Woman's Matches or the first ever Women's Hell In A Cell Match that headlined the PPV event.
6 Alicia Fox
She was born Victoria Elizabeth Crawford, but WWE fans know the stunning 30 year old Floridian as Alicia Fox. Starting her career as a backstage talent and then a manager, Fox wouldn't enter the ring as a wrestler until nearly a year later as a member of the SmackDown roster.
5 Renee Young
At the age of 31, Renee continues to climb up the ladder in more ways than one, becoming better and better looking as the years roll along. She began down in developmental and soon enough, was working as the backstage interviewer with Raw and SmackDown. Thanks to her energetic attitude, fans were able to make a quick connection with the Canadian.
4 AJ Lee
She may be CM Punk's wife, but AJ Lee carved out a name for herself, more so than being known as Phil Brooks significant other. Unfortunately her union with the former WWE champion may have led to her decision to retire from wrestling.
Throughout most of her first year in the WWE, Lee bounced between NXT and SmackDown before being called up to the Blue Brand on a permanent basis. Playing a storyline role in which she bounced from wrestler to wrestler as an unstable crazed love interest with some of the biggest names in the wrestling business such as Daniel Bryan, John Cena and Dolph Ziggler, Lee would become a character that fans loved to hate and hated to love. Throughout her WWE career, Lee would capture the Divas Championship three-times and during her first reign, hold it for a then record 295 days.
3 Alexa Bliss
She may have only started her WWE career in 2013 and made her on-screen NXT debut in 2015, but despite her tiny stature little Miss Bliss has made a big impact in a short time. Whether she is sporting her Harley Quinn look or her more natural blonde, the petite 5'1", former bodybuilder has helped make the Women's Division on SmackDown worth checking out each week.
2 Eve Torres
After winning the 2007 Diva Search, doors aplenty opened for Torres, a former model and NBA Dance Team member (LA Clippers). Kicking off her WWE career at just 24 years old, the Boston native, started behind the curtain as a backstage interviewer before moving on to become an in-ring performer on SmackDown. A trade to Monday Night Raw in 2010 put Torres in an even greater spotlight as she would capture her first of three Divas Championships, becoming the first Diva Search winner to wear a title belt.
1 Becky Lynch
When you think about the Divas Revolution, you think about The Four Horsewomen of the WWE. Becky Lynch was usually considered the underrated member but that all changed when she was drafted to SmackDown on her own as the other three stayed on the Raw brand. Becky proved she can hold her own as the mega babyface of the brand who continues to stride forward week after week.
Along with her obvious popularity, and tremendous in-ring skills, we often forget to discuss that she's actually nice looking to put it in a modest term. Becky dresses conservatively and appropriately to the PG era, but most fans aren't fooled as her beauty is quite obvious. Her UFC star boyfriend Luke Sanders certainly took note as the two are happily dating nowadays.
