The concept of referees in pro wrestling is an interesting one, as in other sports, officials are charged with upholding the rules of the contest and in combat sports; determining a winner. Given that wrestling has scripted matches, the job of the referees have nothing to do with the outcome of matches, and in much the same way, don't enforce any rules whatsoever in terms of the conventional rules of sport.
They exist to make everything seem like a conventional sporting event. Refs obviously indicate the results of matches and make it look like they enforce rules, but in reality the vast majority of their job is helping the performers carry out the matches, relaying information from backstage, and indicating injuries (real injuries or scripted, of course). While all WWE referees are male, every now and again WWE fans are treated to a diva decked out in black and white stripes as a guest referee.
Having a diva performing the duties of the ref is usually done for a change of pace and often contributes to a story line involving that diva. We all know this, but it has also served as a way of getting some eye candy into the ring as well, outside of a match involving divas or a diva playing the part of a valet. While seeing a male in the black and white stripes usually just looks like some necessary gent facilitating a sporting event, WWE divas doll up the outfit and look like hotties in charge. Here are fifteen sexy pictures of WWE divas decked out in ref gear.
15 15. Candice Michelle
Candice Michelle got her start with WWE on Diva Search back in 2004, and despite not actually even placing in the top five in the tournament, ultimately got a job. She held the Women's Championship back in 2007 but not for very long. She was the first former Diva Search contestant to win that belt. Outside of the Women's Championship, a few feuds with Torrie Wilson and Ashley Massaro, and her appearance in April 2006's Playboy, there isn't a ton to talk about.
14 14. Stephanie McMahon
Stephanie McMahon is by no means one of the hottest women ever to work for WWE, but there are two big reasons she looks great in a ref's outfit. We'll give you a hint, not her eyes, not her lips, not her ears; she has a massive chest and we like that kind of thing. She's been in the business since before 2000, and while we'd normally say that is deserving of respect, she's not there because of her talent.
13 13. Maria Kanellis
After getting her start on Diva Search, Maria endeared herself to WWE fans as the dopey moron interviewer some of us remember her as to this day. It was a cute gimmick and she played the part well. Some may argue that she should have stayed doing that, but her career as an actual wrestler wasn't bad by any means.
12 12. Eve Torres
11 11. Kelly Kelly
One of the hottest women ever to wrestle, but without much in the way of technical talent, Kelly Kelly entered the WWE via Ohio Valley back in 2006. She had some unmemorable feuds and some in-ring relationships before beating Brie Bella for the Divas Championship and looked great while doing it. She was a guest referee for a match back in 2010 between Layla and Natalya. She looked more or less as good as she usually did; her shorts looked like they were painted on, and the short top showed off her abs.
10 10. AJ Lee
9 9. Summer Rae
One of the most beautiful women in WWE today, we've been waiting since the middle of 2016 to see her stunning body back in the ring. She confirmed a few months ago that she has been dealing with injuries, and it is uncertain how long it will be until she is back. With that said, she's a former Legends/Lingerie Football League cornerback and is as tough as she is sexy. We eagerly await her return.
8 8. Sable
One of the hottest women in wrestling from the late 1990's and early 2000's, Sable has been married to Brock Lesnar for about ten years now, proving that the guy knows how to make a good life for himself. He's an icon in wrestling, a former UFC Heavyweight champ and got a brief spot on the Minnesota Vikings practice squad. Forget all those things, he comes home to this.
7 7. Eva Marie
6 6. Taryn Terrell
We'll admit that Taryn Terrell did not do any guest referee work when she was with WWE. Her time with TNA as a knockout is better known than her days as a diva, and we decided to include her anyway because...well...look at her.
5 5. Paige
4 4. Nikki Bella
3 3. Torrie Wilson
2 2. Trish Stratus
1 1. Stacy Keibler
This shouldn't come as a shock to anybody. Stacy Keibler is one of the most beautiful women ever to work for WWE. Of course, she was the epitome of the eye candy diva: the girl who was there because she was beautiful to look at but had no business being in wrestling because of her athletic ability. But whether or not she belonged there, we can't argue with the results.
From her time in WCW to her WWE days, those legs looked like something from out of this world, and they were brilliantly shown off when she guest-reffed a match between D'Lo Brown and Test back in December 2002. Who won the match? The fans, because of this sexy ref. But more accurately, Test won. That'll happen when your in-ring girlfriend is the ref.
