In an age where female wrestlers are looked upon less as simple eye candy and more as professional talent, we’ve experienced quite the transition from what we were used to a decade ago. Wrestling has given us some of the most attractive women in sports. WWE Divas especially, are a top everyone’s list of in ring babes. Take a quick look through some of the women to grace the company and it isn’t hard to figure out why. If there’s one thing the WWE does better than gathering talented wrestlers, it’s finding the most attractive female stars to sell their product. Among the most popular and better looking of them all was of course Torrie Wilson.
Torrie was a solid talent in the ring. Not great, but good enough to put up some decent matches. But the real appeal in her career were the visuals. Throughout her eight year stint with the WWE, Torrie was regarded as one of the promotion’s most attractive female stars. The buxom blonde bombshell checked out a lot of boxes and was the perfect fit for what WWE was doing at the time. Let’s look back at her career now with some of the hottest Torrie Wilson GIFs out there.
Torri’s was always one of the most charismatic Divas throughout her career. She had the looks and charms to win over any fan, and she rarely failed to make both wrestlers and fans alike turn for a second glance. Throughout the entirety of her seven year WWE career, Torrie made use of her fantastic looks. She was rally one of the best looking Divas on the roster and still stands as some fans personal favourite almost a decade after her retirement. Throughout her tenure, Torrie gained a reputation for not being afraid to show off her more salacious side on camera. It’s part of the reason she was so popular at the time, and as you can see here both she and WWE management weren’t afraid to show a little off every now and then.
19 Walk It Off
The late '90s and early 2000s were a teenage wrestling fan’s dream come true – especially when it came to the female roster and how they were presented. The personalities, storylines, feuds and the Divas themselves all pushed the boundaries creating an endless stream of entertainment that only saw the WWE’s popularity skyrocket. Of course, so did that of its most prominent female stars. Torrie was of course one of the biggest names in the group. After hoping on from WCW after a short-lived stint there, Torrie was an instant hit on the WWE roster. Fans fell in love with her eye popping looks and confidence. A good deal of both are on display here, as she struts down away from the ring right near some eager fans.
18 Killer Smile
The WWE asks its female talent to do a lot, more than we fans sometimes realize. Apart from taking part in storylines, they have to sell the brand by sometimes interacting with fans, partaking in numerous photo shoots and whatever other miscellaneous tasks in which they can promote their employers and help make the company more money. That’s a pretty versatile skill set – and almost every Diva and female wrestler has had to do it in some regard. Seeing as the majority of this list will feature Torrie in more “liberal” attire, here’s a refreshing gif that show’s that the buxom blonde doesn’t have to bear it all to show off her stunning features. The blue top looks incredibly tasteful on her and her smile shines brightly, instantly captivating you.
17 Walking the Line
There’s more than one way to entertain fans inside of the ring, and over the years the WWE has gotten pretty creative in how they’ve chosen to do so. Obviously, the wrestling is the key component there. It’s the main draw that sees the majority of fans in the door. But between various gimmicks, storylines, stunts and attire – the WWE has made sure that their catalogue has expanded so that they’ve got a little bit of everything for everyone. Some people like to see bloody cage matches, while others prefer to see scantily clad beauties strut around the ring like it’s no one’s business. Pink is an underrated color on Torrie. We know that she looks great in lighter shades, and this certainly makes her look very appealing to the general audience.
16 Strip Tease
In today’s WWE, the female talent is looked upon more competitively as their predecessors. Not to say that the Divas weren’t meant to be competitive – they had their own championship and everything – but as it was back then, Divas were mainly eye candy for the audience at home. You can’t really dispute that with all the ridiculous things that they were asked to do and participate in. They were beautiful women who just so happened to wrestle. Even a popular Diva like Trish never actually won a championship. Her popularity was greatly based on her charm and looks. One thing Torrie seemed to have no problem doing was pleasing the crowd. As you can see here, she was willing to go above and beyond to do it.
15 Own It
As we’ve previously stated, Torrie has a ton of charisma and it was one of the biggest reasons for why she was so popular. You could have all the wrestling talent in the world and still fail to draw much attention if you couldn’t get the fans off their seats. Provoking, angering, exciting or even frustrating them were all effective means of doing so. While a lot of the male talent had to do this, female wrestlers were especially adept at getting fans to really get in the mood. Torrie herself was great at riling up the crowd. With her looks how couldn’t she be? While she won’t be remembered for her skills in the ring, she’s certainly stamped her legacy as one of the better looking divas of her time.
14 Hand in Hand
WWE programming is a lot different now than it used to be. To say it’s somewhat tamer would be a bit of an understatement. Back in Torrie’s prime, the WWE went above and beyond to appeal to its largely male demographic. That meant over the top violence and beautiful women packaged in one package. While the men were beating each other senseless, Divas were taking a somewhat more bodily route to conflicts. You can probably remember them, lingerie matches, bikini matches, mud wrestling, the list goes on. These wouldn’t fly today, but back then they were incredibly popular. It was the closest the WWE could go in pushing the limit without getting in any real trouble, and they treaded that line a lot. Fans weren’t complaining, especially when you got moments like this on camera.
Torrie’s a very well rounded performer. She’s got the looks and skills to get the crowd going and managed to stay in the Wrestling business for nearly a decade because of her efforts. She’s still looked upon as one of the most popular female talents ever, and with looks like hers you know exactly why. It might be hard to believe, but Torrie looks even better now than she did in her prime. It’s rare to see someone completely work their way through the effects of age, but with a healthy diet and a strict workout regiment, Torrie has managed to blow other women her age completely out the water. Hard to believe the woman in this gif is looking that much better so many years later, but she is.
12 Make out Session
Some segments on WWE programming were just too steamy for today’s viewers. While we’re trending more and more towards an increasingly regulated kind of programming on television, pro wrestling has been one of the biggest brands to change direction in this time. It used to be that you could expect some of the craziest things you’d ever seen on WWE television. Not anymore. Now things are much more tame, and while that’s not a bad thing it’s certainly a bit of a letdown to some older fans who were drawn in by the unpredictable nature of the programming. You’ll never see things like this now that’s for sure. But to be fair, Torrie’s in a class of her own so it wouldn’t be the same anyways.
As fans, we focus in on what the camera focuses on. We essentially see what they want us to see. WWE takes a lot of time in putting together good programming for their fan base to enjoy, so everything is meticulously planned out in order to ensure that a good show is put on. That being said, there’s still stuff that goes on in the background, away from the focal points of the show. Sometime’s catching a glimpse of those unscripted moments is more exciting that actually watching the match itself. Fans got a nice taste of that here as we see Torrie quickly adjusting her underwear while leaning over the ropes. It’s a brief shot, but a nice one nonetheless; and one the fans certainly enjoyed.
10 Sexy Bunny
Wrestling fans are still reeling over the recent leaked pictures of Paige that randomly popped onto the internet. Though we don’t know how much yet, this turn of events will undoubtedly affect her WWE career and most probably strain the already delicate relationship between her and the promotion. Back when Torrie was around though, fans got to see certain Divas’ more intimate sides if they chose to pose for publications like Playboy, which a few did. Torrie – who’s been featured twice – still stands as one of the most attractive women to grace the cover. Here we see the former Playboy cover girl dancing around the ring in a very revealing but tasteful bikini that we’re sure the crowd was loving at the time.
9 Dancing Queen
We know that Torrie’s got the moves. She lasted long in the WWE after all, so she had to be physically fit. While she now looks like she’s in the best shape of her life, Torrie in her prime was nothing to scoff at. Most female wrestlers that came around during her time came and went without so much as a pop. Torrie had staying power, she could appeal to a large fan base and succeeded in doing so throughout her career and even now that she’s left the business. Here see see one of the skills that won over so many fans. Her ability to dance and move in a way that just made you have to drop everything and invest yourself in the program was unrivaled among her coworkers. Look at her go...
There’s no doubting that Torrie was one of the best looking women on the roster at the time of her employment. She was rivaled only by Trish Stratus in that regard, and even then you could get in hours long arguments as to who’s better and why. But that’s just a testament to how beautiful and successful these women were. Torrie herself was the template for a successful WWE Diva. Buxom, blonde and a sweet and dangerously charming personality were all the makings of a future star. Torrie pulled off the look and executed the character very well. As we can see here, she knew what the fans wanted and rarely failed to give them their money’s worth. Torrie understood the formula of the times.
7 Lovely in Red
We know that Torrie Wilson looks good in just about anything she wears. The beautiful blonde can pull off pretty much any look she wants to. From flirty to mature, she’s got style and charm that rivals any professional actress or model. The WWE was great in that regard, with finding talented beautiful women to push their brand and deliver quality entertainment. Torrie was one of the best at doing it. WWE was also pretty well known for what it made its Divas wear at times. Seeing as they could do pretty much anything they wanted to, they didn’t shy away from showing a little skin. Here we can see Torrie looking her best in an eye popping red corset. It doesn’t get any better.
6 Torrie in Pink
We’ve seen a lot of incredibly revealing shots, but to be fair, Torrie didn’t exactly spend her days in the WWE going out in three layer outfits. Everything was either short, tight or skimpy – no one complained then and we don’t assume anyone will complain now. But that being said, it’s not like we can’t find anything a little more conservative out there. After all, Torrie looked good in anything she wore, so finding a little less revealing outfit that still suited her was an easy task. Here we see her in a pink top that’s very generous in how it shows off her chest. We’re assuming that went into the thought process when picking out this outfit for what appears to be a photo shoot.
5 Torrie & Sable
Two of the hottest blondes in the WWE’s long history, Torrie and Sable are each remembered as some of the marquee performers the company had o offer. They had some pretty memorable interactions together and proved to be a steamy pair when together. It was definitely pleasing for wrestling fans to have not one, but two salacious blondes at a time in the ring. The two were quite a pair out of the ring too, as their joint Playboy issue was both a surprise and a fantastically received move by fans. Among all Diva appearances in the magazine that remains one of the most jaw dropping. Of course, what’s even more jaw dropping is this steamy and boundary pushing moment the two shared on WWE programming.
Divas had it rough at times. Their job wasn’t just to wrestle or strut their stuff around the ring, but to promote themselves and therefore the WWE in all kinds of ways. While there were many different methods for doing this, photo shoots were among the most popular and well received. Now that we’ve got unlimited access to everything online it might not seem as significant, but getting a magazine or calendar with your favourite wrestler on it was a pretty fun experience. Torrie was no stranger to these kinds of photo shoots and here it shows, as the water glistens off her body and she moves through the water like a professional model on the job. Once again, helping the company sells their product.
3 Mic Check
What makes a wrestler popular isn’t necessarily their in ring skills or looks, but sometimes their skills on the mic. Pro wrestling involves a lot of acting and for a large part of the fan base, it’s that that gets them drawn into it in the first place. Anyone can get two people to brutalize each other in a ring, but WWE sells its brand by spinning tales and keeping fans genuinely invested in their stories. While she wasn’t the best on the mic Torrie was certainly adept at getting a response out of fans. Here we can see her showing off the same charisma, charm and playfulness – among other things – that made her so popular and which keeps her popular among fans.
We know that WWE programming was a lot more risqué in Torrie’s time when compared to what we see on TV now. But even by her era’s standards, this was a pretty surreal moment. Torrie and Sable had great chemistry together. One thing you need from wrestlers working together is for them to kind off bounce off each other’s personalities and bring out the best in one another. That was certainly the case here and it’s still something that really sticks out when you watch this moment from SmackDown. The two know how to play off the other’s individual appeal perfectly and make for an excellent pair when entertaining fans. The lollipop was definitely a bit much but then again that’s probably why it was used.
1 Close Up
Let’s get this out of the way, while the WWE can be pretty tongue in cheek about a lot of things, sometimes they’re very obvious in showing you what you want. All the bikini matches and things of that nature back in Torrie’s time were pretty clear indicators of that. Things are much different now though, and the fanservice has been scaled down to about a two. But looking back on it, it could get somewhat ridiculous. Look no further than here for a definite answer. Torrie’s wearing a stunning black bikini and is looking as good as she’s ever looked. But that’s not the main focus believe it or not. The camera still focuses on Torrie here but it’s from a much lower angle.
