For many of us, the beach is the scene of happy childhood memories. Building sandcastles. Learning to swim. Lounging in the sun. As kids, there were few things which delighted us more than golden sand and deep blue water. But the beach isn’t just for children; it can also be the scene of some pretty great adult memories.
Due to their travel schedule, which takes them around the world and from climate to climate, WWE's ladies find themselves on beaches far more often than the rest of us. The fact that a number of them live in Florida while not on the road only increases the time they can spend on the beach. While this means a lot of reclining in the sun and reading while sipping on margaritas, it also means we get to see plenty of snapshots of WWE’s female competitors looking amazing on the various beaches of the world.
Now that 2016 is almost at an end, it’s safe to say that all the pictures that are going to be taken of WWE's ladies on the beach have been taken. The final tally probably gives us hundreds of pictures of bikini clad Divas enjoying the sun, but you’re a busy guy and don’t have the time to go through all of them. Don’t worry, though. We’ve taken one for the team and scrolled through dozens of pictures of WWE Divas on the beach in order to bring you only the very best. It was a dirty job, but we managed to get through it.
Here are 15 WWE Divas who look amazing on the beach in 2016.
15 Brie Bella
2016 has been a tempestuous year for Brie Bella, the slightly less successful Bella Twin. At the beginning of the year, her husband, former WWE World Champion Daniel Bryan, was forced into retirement after a series of concussions. Her own retirement came shortly after, with her final match taking place at WrestleMania 32. After leaving active competition, Brie stayed on our screens with Total Bellas, the Bellas’ very own reality TV show. Then, to bring the year to a close, Brie announced that she was pregnant with her first child.
Of course, nobody would have guessed Brie Bella had so much going on in her life when this picture was posted six months ago. In it, we see the former WWE Diva’s Champion strolling along the beach, looking away from the camera in a pose which no doubt took several attempts to get right.
Interest in Natalya has surged over the past two years. Sure, we always knew she was head and shoulders above the rest of the WWE Divas for years, but few realized she had such a magnificent body until she swapped her traditional ring gear for a skintight latex catsuit, propelling her to the top of every WWE fan’s search history.
However, Natalya can look just as incredible out of that catsuit as she looks while encased in it, as this picture proves. Here, we see her posing on a beach during WWE’s 2016 tour of Hawaii. Shunning the full bikini that most women with her body would go with, The Queen of Black Hearts is decked out in a red bikini top and a similarly colored beach dress, giving her the look of a Greek Goddess.
13 Eva Marie
When you see her in the ring, even after a year of private training, it is clear that Eva Marie was hired simply because of her looks. She just doesn’t have the talent necessary to become a serious competitor in WWE, which means her never-ending push is a testament to how attractive she is. Which is pretty damn attractive.
WWE fans haven’t seen Eva Marie in a couple of months as she’s been away filming a movie and living her dream of being an actual celebrity. In this picture, shared by the WWE superstar from the set of her latest project, we see Eva Marie looking significantly different than we are used to. Her fiery red hair has been transformed into jet black locks and her torso is covered, which has to be a first for Eva Marie on camera. Despite these changes, she still looks incredible and would not be out of place in a scene from Baywatch.
12 Renee Young
Canadian-born Renee Young is not an active competitor in WWE, but she has a body to rival the top stars of both rosters’ Women’s division, as proven in this photo.
Here, we see SmackDown’s real number one announcer looking badass with her sunglasses on and her hair slicked back as she prepares to venture into the ocean on a jet ski. Behind her is former WWE Women’s Champion and current WWE pre-show personality Amy “Lita” Dumas. Like Young, Lita has not used the fact that she does not compete in the ring every week as an excuse to fall out of shape. She looks as good as ever, perhaps better than she has in years as she continues the trend of former Divas looking as good as they did in their prime.
11 Summer Rae
There was a lot of fanfare about Summer Rae when she first debuted on the main roster. As Fandango’s dance partner and valet, she stunned WWE fans both male and female with her athleticism, stamina, and breathtaking natural beauty. Somewhere along the way, Summer Rae got lost in the shuffle, but this picture is a reminder of why everybody was so crazy about her once upon a time.
In this photograph, posted to Summer Rae’s Instagram earlier this year, we see her perched atop the helm of a boat as it drifts out to to join a fleet of ships of similarly beautiful people for what looks like some sort of giant boat party. Seemingly enjoying being a socialite more than a wrestler, Summer Rae grins from ear to ear, her teeth shining brighter than the sun and her abs harder than an iceberg.
JoJo Offerman was barely an adult when WWE signed her to be a part of the original series of Total Divas, something which was painfully apparent from the moment she stepped into a wrestling ring for the first time. Unable to take a bump without bursting into tears, the juvenile signee was put on announcing duties, where she has stayed ever since.
This picture, taken by JoJo during WWE’s Hawaiian tour earlier this year, shows that she has matured into a beautiful woman, so beautiful that she could hang with the likes of Natalya and Sasha Banks (at least in the looks department). The ring announcer is clad in a neon bikini top which is almost pressed against the camera as beach goers frolic in the background, though you probably didn’t notice them.
9 Becky Lynch
Becky Lynch is a favorite of the Internet Wrestling Community. She seems to be the perfect mix of in-ring talent, charisma, and good looks. However, Lynch is far more concerned with the wrestling part and rarely shows any interest in the half-naked selfies most ladies post on a daily basis.
In this picture, however, we get to see a side of Becky Lynch which is all too rarely on show. The SmackDown Women’s Champion poses at the point where water meets sand, wearing nothing but a string bikini and a pair of sunglasses, which she playfully holds onto. Her bright orange hair rivals the light of the sun while her feet dig deep into the sand as if they were the roots of a particularly beautiful tree.
Maryse disappeared from our screens for a number of years to focus on a life outside professional wrestling, but she came striding back into the business on the post-WrestleMania edition of Raw earlier this year, much to the delight of fans everywhere. Thankfully, this time around she is working as the valet of her husband, The Miz, so fans don’t have to worry about her beauty being marred by her subpar (at best) wrestling skills. In this snatching of time, we see Ms. Mizanin standing in the shallow end of the ocean water, surrounded by what looks to be a gang of troublesome stingrays. Granted it could just be a mass of seaweed, but she’s right to keep her distance regardless. We wouldn't want anything bad happening to this beauty.
Some people find it hard to look at Charlotte without seeing her father, 16-time world champion “The Nature Boy” Ric Flair. However, if there was ever a picture to prove that she is as far removed from ‘Natch as possible, it’s this one.
Posing with a surfboard, Charlotte is surrounded by golden grains of sand and palm trees, her face set in a smile and her eyes masked by sunglasses. Her bright blonde hair is soaking wet and peeled back, suggesting she has already been in the water. She wears a mismatched, though jaw dropping, outfit of a purple bikini bottom and a bright blue bikini top, which looks as though it is fighting to stay on. I can’t explain why, but I suddenly want some surfing lessons.
6 Dana Brooke
Dana Brooke is one of the most polarizing figures in WWE’s women’s division. Many argue that she was brought up from NXT way too soon and was thrust into main event storylines while women like Bayley and Asuka continued to go under appreciated. Some agree with WWE’s assertion that Brooke is the Total Diva, while others view her more as a cross between Chyna and The Bride of Frankenstein. However, most will agree that Brooke looks absolutely stunning in this photograph, which she posted to her Instagram several months ago.
In it, Brooke is posed with her back perfectly curved, given her the shape of an S, her rear and chest pulling her in separate directions. She is clad in a neon bikini, which looks like it could be swept away by the wave which is crashing against her muscular frame.
5 Mandy Rose
Anybody who does not watch NXT regularly may be unfamiliar with Mandy Rose. In fact, even the people who watch NXT weekly may struggle to place her. Hell, I write about wrestling for a living and I’m not entirely sure who she is. She has appeared once or twice on NXT TV and is apparently a regular on Total Divas. However, I think we’ll all make sure to remember Ms. Rose after this picture.
Here, Mandy Rose can be seen enjoying a cocktail as she lounges in the sun. She is clad in a white bikini which shows off the reason (or reasons) she was offered a WWE contract in the first place, though she lost on her season of Tough Enough. Resting on the sun bed alongside Rose are a second pair of sunglasses and her phone, presumably so she can take several dozen selfies.
Australian-born Emma is no stranger to the beach, but in recent months she has become a stranger to the squared circle. A back injury took her out of action just after this year’s WrestleMania and she has only recently been cleared to return. Over the past couple of weeks, WWE has been airing promos of a rejuvenated Emma, now referred to as “Emmalina,” who has been transformed into a model in the vein of Kylie Jenner.
This picture comes from the series of snapshots WWE has been releasing since the brand split to promote her return. She is seen posing on top of a rock, wearing a barely noticeable bikini as water pours down, colliding with her. Whether this picture was actually taken at the beach is up for dispute. It could simply be the work of WWE’s photoshop experts. One thing that can’t be denied, however, is that Emma – soon to be Emmalina – looks absolutely incredible.
Lana is easily one of the most glamorous women on the WWE roster today. Her beauty has drawn attention away from her on-screen love and real life husband, Rusev, leading to many comparisons between her and Sable. While she hasn’t quite ruined Rusev’s career in the way Sable destroyed Marc Mero’s, it is not hard to see why most of WWE’s audience would rather look at Lana than her husband.
In this photo, we see C.J. Perry, the woman behind the Lana character, posing on a sun bed with her eyes shut and lips pursed. She proudly displays a double strawed cocktail, which is the same color as her lime green bikini and looks a lot less appetizing. In the water behind her, two figures can be seen swimming, presumably unaware that they are in the company of a WWE superstar.
2 Nikki Bella
Although she isn’t the Women’s Champion of either Raw of SmackDown, Nikki Bella is the still female face of WWE. This is due, in large part, to her relationship with John Cena, the male face of the company. WWE fans often criticize John Cena for allowing his relationship with Nikki Bella to get in the way of what is best for the business, but when you see a picture like this, can you really blame him?
This picture was taken during a photoshoot earlier this year, which saw the cast of Total Divas gather on the beach for some bikini-wearing frolicking. Here, we get a glimpse of Nikki between shoots but she still looking absolutely incredible. Her lower body is mesmerizing, despite being covered in sand, while her upper-body looks nothing less than stunning.
Naomi is one of the most criminally under-appreciated talents not just in WWE’s women’s division, but on the entire roster. In terms of her in-ring work, Naomi has come on leaps and bounds (literally) since her debut as a member of The Funkadactyls. As for her appearance, there are some who believe Naomi – real name Trinity Fatu – to be the single most beautiful woman in sports entertainment and they have a lot of evidence to back up their argument. For example, this picture.
Naomi took this photograph during Lana’s beach wedding earlier this year. Although she is in costume, she looks absolutely amazing, with piercing eyes which demand to be stared at. Her full lips give a similar feeling of obligation as she looks down at the camera. Who else could look this good from this angle? She truly is amazing.
