It is likely abundantly clear to anyone who watches wrestling that the powers that be in charge of handing out jobs in the industry are inclined to hire women who are good looking. Sure, a great deal of that perception may come from the land that McMahon built but even companies like TNA seem to be predisposed to following suit. So, we decided to put together a list of some of the hottest selfies women in the wrestling industry have taken of themselves.
While putting together our list, the principal rule was that the focus of the photo must have made a name for herself in the wrestling industry. It should also go without saying that the photo needs to have been taken by the subject whether they used a timer, selfie stick, mirror, or just an outstretched arm. We chose not to limit ourselves to women who are known for in-ring grappling, instead leaving the door open to women like Renee Young, who work in the business but not inside the ropes. Finally, women who are no longer active but spent years in the industry also qualified for consideration. With that aside let’s take a look at some pretty ladies.
20 Noelle Foley
A prime example that this list is open to all on-air wrestling personalities, Noelle is employed by the WWE as the star of a “reality” show with her father, Mick. Holy Foley will focus on this unique father-daughter pair that seem to really care about one another as they live their lives. Shown critiquing her father’s rather unorthodox fashion sense in advertisements for the WWE network show, it seems like the hook will be seeing this odd couple style duo interact. Hopefully, the series will focus a great deal on her interest in training to become a wrestler herself as she revealed that her father is helping learn the basics of the business when they appeared on the Stone Cold Podcast.
19 Santana Garrett
First coming to the attention of many mainstream fans during her time in TNA, she had a very short run at the side of Orlando Jordan before creating a name for herself as Brittany years later. Taking her character in several directions, including a cookie cutter face persona that was replaced by a highly entertaining mentally unhinged one, her run, unfortunately, came to an unceremonious end.
18 Sasha Banks
Arguably the most beloved female in the entire company today, with Bayley serving as her main competition, Sasha has regularly had her name chanted when she is nowhere to be seen. First introduced in NXT, where she and her peers helped to create the spark that thankfully sent a term like diva into the history books, her young career has been impressive. Taking part in the very first Iron Woman match in WWE history, against Bayley, the match wasn’t just groundbreaking but it was also one of the best efforts in years, no matter the gender of the participants. A former NXT Women’s Champion, it seems like it is only a matter of time before she grabs the gold on the main roster, especially now that her long-time friend and foe, Charlotte, is champ.
Best known today as the wife of The Miz, recent fans may be unaware of the fact that her history in the business and The WWE goes back several years. Failing to win one of the seasons of the Divas Search, it seems as though the higher-ups in the company would have been blind to not see that her ego and French accent was tailor made to be a wrestling heel. Thus, she received a contract and very quickly began to make appearances on the main roster where her persona and a rather sexy style of pinning her opponents made her a star and champion. After a long hiatus she has recently returned and begun to serve as her husband’s valet but it is hard to imagine she won’t break out on her own if she desires it.
A wrestler who seemed to be a natural at the business Kaitlyn’s run in the company was surprisingly short. Competing in and winning the third season of NXT, when the show was a competition despite almost missing out on the show entirely, she went on to create a team with her onscreen and real-life friend AJ Lee. Eventually defeating Eve Torres for the Divas Championship, she would have a healthy four month run with the title before dropping the belt and taking part in a series of feuds with women like Beth Phoenix and Natalya. Ultimately requesting and receiving her release, seemingly out of nowhere, she has walked away from the business and seems to be happy with it.
A member of the legendary Hart wrestling family, Natalya was born into the business and judging by how fantastic of a grappler she has become, it is a perfect fit. A one-time Divas Champion during her tenure with the company, she mostly has served as the elder statesman of the company and a manager of tag teams that include her husband, Tyson Kidd.
14 Renee Young
A former Sportscaster, Renee likely came to the WWE’s attention when she, Mauro Ranallo, and former WWE employee Kyle Edwards hosted Aftermath, a wrestling discussion show. Brought into the company to serve as a host, interviewer, and jack of all trades, she provided exceptional commentary on NXT for a while and will hopefully get that opportunity again soon. Best known now as the host of preshows for much of WWE’s biggest shows, including pay-per-views, RAW, and Smackdown, she also hosts Unfiltered, an underrated interview series on the WWE Network.
13 Jojo Offerman
We might as well keep the trend of featuring talent that are principally known for their voices on this list going and Jojo would belong on any list looking at sexy women. Brought into the company as a part of the first season of Total Divas, she and her partner in crime, Eva Marie, were thrust into the spotlight despite having exactly zero experience in the industry. Meant to show what it is like for rookies breaking into the business, it quickly became clear to viewers that the over the top histrionics that make up “reality” TV were not a good fit for this woman. Transitioning into ring announcing, she seems perfectly poised to be a WWE mainstay for years to come.
12 Kelly Kelly
Introduced to the wrestling audience as a member of WWE’s version of ECW, where she was the star of her own segment, Kelly’s Expose, she would tease the crowd by beginning to strip weekly. Somehow turning that start into a multiyear run with the company that saw her become an in-ring worker, fans enjoyed her body but necessarily her body of work. A former Divas Champion and Slammy Award winner, she was briefly positioned as the face of the Divas division to the shock of many long-time fans.
11 Becky Lynch
A woman who oozes personality from her every pore, Becky is the type of performer that you can’t help but root for at every turn. Trained in part by the man known as Finn Bálor, there is no questioning her wrestling pedigree and skills. Signed by the WWE in 2013, after runs in promotions like Shimmer and SuperGirls Wrestling, she went through a number of failed personas before hitting on the character that has made her a star today. Brought up to the main roster to serve as the backbone of the soon to be relaunched Women’s division, she has quickly eclipsed many of her coworkers due to her ability to draw out fan’s empathy.
10 So Cal Val
At one time one of TNA’s biggest Jack of all trades, the only she didn’t seem capable of doing at the time was actually taking part in the wrestling action. Best remembered by most as a ring announcer, she also spent a lot of time as an interviewer, ringside attendant, and right-hand woman of Jeremy Borash. Turned into a stand-in for Miss Elizabeth when Jay Lethal, who was known as Black Machismo at the time, recreated the Hogan and Savage feud against Sonjay Dutt, she came between the former friends. We can see how a sexy lady like her could cause such a chasm. That’s for sure.
Arguably the best all-around female wrestler in the world today, Paige has recently been pushed toward the background, aside from a pair of recent RAW matches, which is a crying shame. The first woman to be crowned NXT Women’s Champion, her match against Natalya arguably started the revolution that has changed the way women are used on WWE TV. Winning the WWE Divas Championship the first night she made her main roster debut, the pressure on her was immense and she thrived under it. We’re sure that it is only a matter of time before she takes her rightful place on top of her peers for the third time, (she has won the title two twice already) and we look forward to that day.
A part of an extremely long lasting season of NXT, when it was still a completion show, Catrina was known as Maxine at the time and started wearing a catsuit that drove fans wild with desire. Asking to be released after she began to feel that she wasn’t getting the opportunities she deserved and after one of her peers, Aksana, stole her style, many thought her days in wrestling were through. Boy, were they wrong. Joining Lucha Underground, she rechristened herself Catrina and created a dark persona that served as the leader of several supernatural-tinged characters, while dialing up the sex appeal even further.
A former actress, model, dancer, singer, and multiple time Playboy model, there is zero question that Lana knows that the world finds her attractive. Brought under the WWE wing in 2013, to serve as part of NXT, she was quickly packaged with the man that would come to be known as Rusev. Serving a role for The Bulgarian Brute that brings to mind the Russian duo from Rocky IV, the Ravishing Russian would join him as the duo was called up to the main roster. Soon becoming one of the most popular figures in the company despite managing an American hating antagonist, crowds chanted to see more of her.
An Australian wrestler who spent years in the indies before getting an opportunity to plie her trade for the biggest wrestling company in the world, Emma has a loyal fan base. Starting out as a sticky sweet and awfully innocent character who awkwardly danced to the ring, when she was called up to the main roster, she was never properly introduced and was demoted soon thereafter. Recreating herself, she embraced her dark side and set about attacking and fighting those who she felt deserved their success less than here. Finally brought back to the limelight of WWE, her new character should have made her a star but she got bit by the injury bug. Hopefully, she will gain the success she deserves after she finally finishes mending.
5 Maria Kanellis
Another former Diva Search competitor, Maria placed fifth before receiving a contract and being brought up to the main WWE roster. Serving as a backstage interviewer, her character adopted a ditzy persona that was uninspired but was soon greatly improved when she would randomly spout knowledge that hinted at an inner brilliance. Chosen by her bosses in WWE and their corporate partner at the time, Playboy, to pose for the magazine, her nude pictorial earned her greater emphasis on TV for a short time. Dismissed from the company, she became a popular figure on the indy circuit where she would begin to manage her future husband, Mike Bennett, before the duo joined TNA together.
4 Eden Stiles
The final member of the broadcast team to make our list, Eden trained to be a wrestler during her two tenures with the WWE but seems to have found her best success for her voice instead of her body. Shocking looking at that photo, we know. A former ring announcer for shows like Smackdown and Main Event, she managed to make her pay-per-view debut at the grandest show of all, WrestleMania 31. Married to Cody Rhodes, the man also known as Stardust, she recently requested her release shortly after her husband did. Considering it was the second time the WWE let her go at her own request, it seems she is not destined for the wrestling world.
3 Nikki Bella
The face of the Divas division, Total Divas, and the entire company, alongside her sister, for several years, many people have forgotten that The Bellas were rejected from inclusion in the Divas Search. Initially brought to television to accompany performers to the ring, Nikki spent a long time as arm candy for the various RAW guest hosts before she was given the opportunity to actually wrestle. Improving incredibly over her time in the company, she ended up becoming a two-time Divas champion and has the longest reign with that belt ever. Currently on the mend, she seems determined to make her way back to the ring again.
2 Brooke “Tessmacher” Adams
A former WWE employee who was also rejected from the Divas Search, Brooke’s time in the company was unfortunately pretty underwhelming. Added to WWE’s version of ECW, she became a part of Extreme Exposé, a trio of women who would dance sexily in the ring, alongside Kelly Kelly and Layla El. Remembered for a single WWE match, a battle royale of all things, she would be released and eventually join TNA’s roster. Dedicating herself to training to wrestle, she ended up becoming a much better worker than her detractors ever expected her to be and eventually won the Knockouts Championship three times.
1 Eva Marie
Probably the most hated women in the wrestling world at various parts; Eva was added to Total Divas without any wrestling experience due to her looks. Included in a few high profile RAW matches in the wake of the first season, her many botches would earn her the ire of many. Clearly, someone who the WWE continues to bank on, as evidenced by the merchandise she receives that more experienced employees lack, she has begun to slowly improve. If nothing else, she is able to generate incredible amounts of hatred from attendees of wrestling shows, which, if used properly, could be a big asset to WWE storytelling. Seen being trained by Brian Kendrick, a highly respected and talented worker, during the latest season of Total Divas, hopefully, his skills will rub off.
Seen here a skin tight gray body suit, her firm chest, thighs, body and legs seem barely covered. Her form in this pic has us struggling to find words. Ah, screw it, just look at that.
