Leggings, spandex, yoga pants. Call them what you want. They are God’s gift to mankind (emphasis on man). To those atheists who argue that, due to a lack of sufficient evidence, there cannot be a God, we say look no further than the yoga pants. For surely anyone who has ever gazed at the beauty that is a fit woman in yoga pants knows, with complete certainty, that such a thing can only be the product of an omnipotent force.
Or, I don’t know, maybe they were just invented by some guy who wanted to see hot women in tight pants. Who knows? Either way, the world is a better place because of the existence of this stretchy, form-fitting polyurethane fabric known as Lycra.
Have you ever stopped to wonder why exactly men find women’s derrieres so appealing? I’m assuming you haven’t, but let me tell you anyway. According to Dr. Viren Swami, P.hD. (that’s right, I’m bringing science into this), men find the booty attractive because it “is a uniquely female trait—and therefore uniquely feminine. After puberty, sex hormones begin to dictate the distribution of fat on the body. In men, fat accumulation is stimulated around the gut and inhibited in the seat. It’s the opposite for women, who tend to carry fat in their gluteofemoral region, that is, the butt and thighs.”
Bet you didn’t think you were going to get hit with a dose of a science in an article about yoga pants, did you?
But back to the matter at hand: hot chicks in tight pants. Here are the 20 hottest pictures of WWE Divas in yoga pants. Enjoy!
20 Sasha Banks
According to her Instagram (@sashabankswwe), Sasha Banks is the “baddest superstar in WWE.” And she might be right. At least her 1.3 million followers think so. She’s only been in the organization since 2012, but she already feels that she belongs on the main stage. She recently voiced her frustration with not being promoted enough when she responded to a fan’s question as to why she had not been getting much exposure lately by saying, “you can catch me on Main Event.” Some took this as being a sarcastic jab at the head honchos of WWE, as many believe that the beautiful Banks does indeed deserve the spotlight at the moment.
Here’s a fun fact about Sasha: Snoop Dogg is her first cousin, and the rapper helped promote her when she was just starting out. She credits him with helping her find her in-ring persona.
19 Trish Stratus
Inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2013, Trish Stratus is a legend in the wrestling industry. Back in the early 2000s she was every male wrestling fan’s dream. Who didn’t have a poster of her in a revealing bikini in their childhood bedroom? Now officially retired for roughly ten years, Stratus, who believe it or not is 40 years old, is still as hot as ever. We could have included a picture of her from 2000 or 2016 and it wouldn’t have made a difference. What’s her secret for keeping her body in such amazing shape? Yoga, of course, so you know she looks good in a pair of yoga pants.
Stratus has made several appearances in WWE events since her retirement, but she's been focusing more on her acting and television career. She's appeared in a number of reality shows since 2006, including Armed and Famous and Stratusphere.
18 Rosa Mendes
This one will appeal to both men and women, as Rosa Mendes, who was born Milena Roucka, has stated that she has no particular preference when it comes to dating—basically she’s game for anything and anyone. Born in Vancouver, British Columbia, Mendes made her wrestling debut nearly ten years ago. Since then, she has been a fan favorite, thanks in part to her voluptuous body, which she loves to show off on her Instagram page, which is a must for male wrestling fans. She recently had a child with musician and businessman Bobby Schubenski, but you wouldn’t know it by the way she looks in yoga pants and a workout bra just months after giving birth.
Just before she went on maternity leave, Mendes made the move from the ring to the broadcast booth, serving as WWE.com's correspondent for the October Smackdown event. Still no word as to when we might expect to see her back in the WWE, but you can bet that fans eagerly await her return.
Cameron Lynn, born Ariane Nicole Andrew, was a main cast member of the E! reality show Total Divas from 2013-2015. In 2015, it was announced that she would no longer be one of the main cast members but that she would still make the odd guest appearance. She began her WWE career in 2011 when she competed on yet another wrestling reality show, WWE Tough Enough. She was the first person eliminated from the competition, but she would still go on to sign with WWE and partner up with fellow yoga-panted hottie Naomi to create the tag team The Funkadyctyls. Unfortunately, Cameron was released from the organization in May 2016, which means wrestling fans will no longer be graced with her beautiful body. At least we still have pictures like this to remember her by (and there are lots more where that came from on her Instagram).
16 Kelly Kelly

It’s no mystery why they call this woman Barbie, because she’s like a real life Barbie doll, flawless in just about every way. Kelly Kelly’s husband, former NHL defenseman Sheldon Souray, is one lucky man. But this woman should be appreciated for more than just the way she looks in a pair of yoga pants (which is incredible, by the way), as she also happens to be a former gymnast, cheerleader, and swimwear model, and before getting into wrestling she studied broadcast journalism in the hopes of becoming a television news anchor. But, ultimately, Kellyx2 decided to go with what she knew best: looking sexy.
Since retiring from pro wrestling in 2012, she has focused on her family life. Her relationship with hockey player Sheldon Souray is documented in the E! reality show WAGs, which follows the wives and girlfriends of professional athletes.
15 Sara Lee
Sara Lee (no relation to the food company, although she’s sweet like a Sara Lee dessert) might just be the cutest and most underrated WWE Diva currently in the business. The best part about this picture (aside from the obvious hotness of it) is that Lee’s bedroom looks like your average teenage girl’s room (she’s 24, just to be clear), with clothes strewn about all over the place and no frills furniture. It’s like we’re being granted a glimpse into the bedroom of the girl next door--that is, if the girl next door happened to be a hot WWE Diva.
Lee, who made her in-ring debut earlier this year in a tag team match, is still in the developmental territory of the WWE, working out of the WWE Performance Center in Orlando, Florida, but it should only be a matter of time before she makes the jump to the big leagues. She's certainly got the looks for it, and she's proven in the past that she's got the wrestling ability.
14 14. Naomi
Like many of the women on this list, Naomi, who was born Trinity McCray (is it just us, or is that not a better ring name than her actual ring name?), combines toughness with feminine sex appeal. Sure she’s gorgeous, and the kind of woman you’d like to take out to a nice restaurant, but she’s also completely badass, able to fly around the ring and perform acrobatic stunts. The kind of guy who winds up with a woman like this would have to be pretty badass and tough himself. And he is. Naomi is married to fellow wrestler Jonathan Fatu (known as Jimmy Uso).
On top of wrestling, Naomi has all been a main cast member on Total Divas and she made an attempt at a musical career, releasing the song “Dance All Night” through WWE’s official YouTube channel a couple years ago.
What's even better than yoga pants? Yoga shorts, of course.
What’s the best way to describe Natalya? Cute or sexy? Probably a bit from column A and a bit from column B (okay, make that a lot from column B). She packs a lot of body into that small frame, as she’s petite yet thick in all the right places, making her the perfect kind of woman to be wearing a pair of yoga pants (or shorts). Much to the delight of her male admirers, Natalya is no stranger to showing off her incredible body, either, perhaps most memorably when she posed in a variety of teeny bikinis for WWE’s Summer Skin photo shoot.
Along with Paige, the Bella twins, and Eva Marie, Natalya is one of the biggest female names in professional wrestling. You wouldn’t know it by looking at her, but Natalya, 34, has been around for a long time, beginning her career in 2000.
12 Summer Rae
This tall blonde beauty was also a main cast member of Total Divas. Even though she’s only been signed to WWE since 2011, she’s already established herself as one of the biggest female names in the industry. A big reason for that, of course, is her looks. She may not be as strong or muscular as some of the other women on this list, but she looks just as good as anyone in a pair of yoga pants.
Before getting into pro wrestling, Rae, who was born Danielle Moinet, played lingerie football for the Chicago Bliss of the Legends Football League.
Be sure to check out her Instagram (@daniellemoinet) for all of her sexy selfies—there are a lot of them.
11 AJ Lee
Ok, so this one’s cheating a bit, since this is a gif and we can't really see her face at all, but what do you care? You’re not worried about the ethics of this article; you just want to see hot women. For this one, we had to go with AJ Lee in skintight gray leggings, stretching and training in a gym, showing off her incredibly amazing and fit physique.
At 5’2” and 115 lbs., Lee, who is married to the controversial former WWE superstar CM Punk, is deceptively strong, and her best feature, by far, are her legs. Just look at those things! It looks like she could crush your head between her thighs. And we’re guessing more than a few of our male readers would gladly take that risk if it meant they could be in such a position.
10 Becky Lynch
With her fire-red hair and her killer body, Becky Lynch is like the cute, petite version of Eva Marie. She’s like Eva Marie if Eva Marie were the girl next door. If you ask us, though, we think Lynch is even hotter (although you really can’t go wrong with either). Lynch, or Rebecca Quinn, as she’s known outside of the ring, was born and raised in Dublin, Ireland, but traveled throughout Europe in order to advance her wrestling career. Luckily for us North Americans, she eventually made her way over to the United States, where she now works for WWE.
Usually yoga pants is all about showing off the booty, but for this picture we decided to go with one that shows off Lynch's impressive six-pack. Seriously, you could do your laundry on those washboard abs.
The beautiful Lana is more than just a wrestler. She’s also a musician, formerly of the disturbingly named girl group No Means Yes, and an actress, having appeared in such films as Pitch Perfect, Pitch Perfect 2, and the WWE produced Countdown, which stars wrestling all-stars Kane and Dolph Ziggler. She’s also a reality star, with appearances in Total Divas season 4 and 6. It’s easy to see why so many people are eager to work with her, because she’s hot, to say the least, and she knows how to show off that amazing body. Unfortunately for us men, she’s also married to a 300 lb. monster in wrestler Alexander Rusev. So unless you’re willing to go through him, which I’m guessing you’re not, then you don’t stand a chance with her.
8 Torrie Wilson
Also at 40 years of age, Torrie Wilson is certainly not the youngest woman on this list, yet she just might be the hottest. Wilson, who made her major pro wrestling debut in 1999 after she was discovered at a WCW event, is a legend in the WWE universe. She’s regularly cited as being one of, if not the, hottest Divas of all time (we had her at number three on our list, behind only Trish Stratus and Stacy Keibler). Since retiring from the ring in 2008, Wilson hasn’t lost her looks one bit. In fact, she might be hotter now than she was when she was in the prime of her career. Like Stratus, Wilson keeps in shape by regularly doing yoga, which means that there are plenty of pictures of her in yoga pants. But if that’s still too much clothes for you, you might consider checking out her Playboy photos (she posed for the magazine on two separate occasions).
What is it with Canadian female wrestlers? First there was Trish Stratus, Rosa Mendes, and Natalya, and now there’s Maryse Ouellet, who was born in Montreal, Quebec, but grew up in Edmunston, New Brunswick. And they’re all ridiculously hot. Speaking of Canada, Maryse, who is a former two-time WWE Divas Champion, was named Miss Hawaiian Tropic Canada in 2003 and landed the cover of Playboy’s Girls of Canada 2007 calendar. Maryse was inarguably the hottest girl in her high school… but that’s because she was the only girl in her class. Talk about stiff competition for the boys. Even though she looks incredible in a pair of yoga pants, she probably could have worn a burlap sack and the guys in her school still would have been all over her.
On top of being a former wrestler, Celeste Bonin (or Kaitlyn, as she is better known in the ring) is also a professional bodybuilder, so you know she’s got the assets to pull off skintight yoga pants (in fact, there’s a Twitter account set up solely for her butt, @KaitlynsAss, full of pictures of the former Diva’s best feature). Bonin’s won several bodybuilding/fitness competitions over the years, including the National Physique Committee John Sherman Classic Bodybuilding Figure and Fitness Championship. While she’s certainly muscular, she’s not so muscular as to no longer be considered feminine looking. She walks a fine line between Trish Stratus and Chyna, muscularity wise.
Kaitlyn has been married to bodybuilder PJ Braun (sorry guys) for two years. Together, the muscular pair own a smoothie bar in Boca Raton, Florida.
5 Brie Bella
Brie and Nikki Bella are identical twins. So how can you tell them apart? That’s easy, Brie is the hot one. No, wait, Nikki is the hot one. No, I know, Brie is the one with the great body, who looks amazing in yoga pants. Come to think of it, maybe that’s Nikki, as well. So how do you tell them apart? You don’t. Who cares. Just appreciate the fact that God created one of the hottest women in the world and then decided to double down and gift us with yet another one. Now, if only there were two Trish Stratuses.
According to her, Brie is "semi-retired," whatever that means. As long as we still get to see her in the spotlight from time to time, it doesn't really matter.
4 Eva Marie
Eva Marie is easily one of the most recognizable female faces in all of wrestling. It might have something to do with her unique fiery red hair. However, it probably has more to do with the fact that she’s stunning. No amount of adjectives could do this woman justice, but let’s try anyway: beautiful, hot, sexy, gorgeous, pulchritudinous (bet you didn’t know that one, did you?), and so on. It’s not just that she has a flawless face; it’s that she also has a perfectly proportioned body, one that could easily serve as the paradigmatic example of the type of body that should be in yoga pants.
There were so many pictures that we could have gone with for this one that it was hard to choose. But really, when it comes to Eva Marie, you can't go wrong. Every picture of this woman could be considered a "hottest" picture.
3 Stacy Keibler
Stacy Keibler is one of the hottest women of all time. And apparently we’re not the only ones who think so, as she’s been named in FHM’s 2008 “100 Sexiest Women” list (in criminally low 64th place) and was dubbed the “World’s Hottest Athlete” in a contest by InGameNow. Keibler is the complete package. Not only does she have long blonde hair and a perfectly symmetrical face (which Oscar from The Office taught us is the true definition of physical attractiveness), but she also has one of the best bodies in WWE history, and you can bet that her 5’11” frame looks incredible in tight yoga pants. Unfortunately for us male fans, she isn’t as open as fellow WWE Diva hottie Torrie Wilson when it comes to nudity, as she’s turned down two offers from Playboy to appear in their magazine.
2 Nikki Bella
If you really want to tell the Bella sisters apart, just remember that Nikki is the one who is always hanging off the arm of John Cena, that lucky SOB. She's also the only one of the two sisters still working for WWE, as Brie, along with her boyfriend Bryan Danielson, recently announced her retirement from professional wrestling, citing fears of permanent injury. That’s the great thing about twins, though. Even though one’s gone, we still have the other to enjoy.
Surely causing a bit of sisterly jealousy, in 2015 Nikki was ranked first overall in the "Female 50" list put out by Pro Wrestling Illustrated, beating out the likes of Sasha Banks and Paige, 2014's winner.
Paige is arguably the most popular WWE Diva amongst male wrestling fans at the moment, and she regularly places in the top five, if not first overall, on “Hottest of” lists. With her dark hair, her fair skin, her smoky black eyes, and, of course, her killer body, which looks amazing in a pair of formfitting yoga pants, this British born wrestler is an absolute knockout. Most impressive is the fact that she began her career in 2005 at the tender age of 13, wrestling for her family's promotion, World Association of Wrestling. Since her debut in the WWE in 2011, she has been a main attraction, in more ways than one. She made the main roster in 2014 and became the youngest person ever to win the Divas Championship (in case you didn't know, Paige is the one on the left, giving her friend booty envy).
