What is a WWE Diva? Well we know It isn’t the same as a an old school female wrestler, and the WWE has gone to great lengths to make sure you know that they are not the same. Traditionally female wrestlers were not really viewed as sex symbols, but more of a side show attraction. But as the times have changed, so have the standards of what kind of women enter the business of professional wrestling.
Jim Ross has been quoted as saying that he was tasked with hiring “10s” for the WWE roster, when searching for Divas. As head of Talent Relations, Ross turned down several talented female wrestlers like TNA’s Awesome Kong and ODB because they weren’t “Divas” material.
Over the past decade and a half, most of the Divas that WWE has hired have been former beauty queens, Playboy bunnies, and fitness models from all over the world. These ladies are indeed beautiful, but usually lack the in-ring ability that it takes to be an elite wrestler. Some learn the ropes better than others, but they all use their sexuality to their advantage to get over with fans.Even when the women are talented workers, like Beth Phoenix or Natalya in the WWE, they are forced to participate in matches and situations that accentuate their sexuality.
Explicit sexuality on screen has died down in recent years, with the introduction of the PG era, but luckily we have plenty of moments from the past to reminisce about. With that being said, this list includes very few recent entries, as current Divas barely get any screen time. Since I nearly went crazy trying to find and rank all of these moments, there is a good chance that I may have missed some, so be sure to let us know what we missed in the comments below.
20 MNF Parody
Now to say I am a little biased would be an understatement when it comes to talking about Trish Stratus. To be honest, the Canadian born bombshell could have a sexiest moments list all to herself, but in the interest of fairness can’t have all 20 of the moments on this list. She does however have the number 20 spot, as well as a few others.
In 2004, WWE parodied a skit that played before a Monday Night Football game, that featured Terrell Owens and Nicollette Sheridan. WWE replaced Owens with Shelton Benjamin, and Sheridan with Trish Stratus.
19 Kelly Kelly Spanked
Kelly Kelly is the girl so nice, they named her twice. When she made her WWE Debut on the ECW brand, she was featured as an exhibitionist who just wanted to show off. Kelly loved to strip for the crowd (featured later on this list) and was interrupted by on screen boyfriend Mike Knox on a weekly basis.
18 Maryse Vignettes
17 Lita Teases Matt Hardy
Lita has always had a sexy style, which was more subtle in her early days in the WWE. As her real life relationship with Matt Hardy ended due to an affair with Edge, she drastically changed her on screen persona.
16 Trish’s Table Vignette
During the year 2000, Bubba Ray Dudley had a bad habit of putting women through tables; almost always following it up with an almost euphoric look. Trish Stratus noticed his infatuation, and cut a 30 second promo on Bubba that was filled with sexual innuendos based on tables.
15 Wardrobe Malfunctions
I struggled on whether or not to include wardrobe malfunctions on this list, because at the end of the day a malfunction isn’t intentional. After thinking about it more I decided that since the internet explodes after a Diva explodes out of her top, that this entry is warranted.
14 Lingerie Battle Royal
13 Nidia and Torrie Play Dress Up
12 Mud Match
Well in truth the match between Trish Stratus and Stacy Keibler wasn’t just a Mud Match, but rather a Bra and Panties Mud Match. It started with Trish being thrown off the stage into a pool of mud, becoming just a tan silhouette of curves, and Stacy following suit soon after. In the midst of the match, Trish found the strength to give Stacy a few spanks before rolling her up for the pin.
11 Melina’s Entrance
Quite possibly the best entrance ever (even better than Gangrel), Melina’s split into the ring is perfect. Her jump from the mat to the apron is perfect, her pause before sliding into the ring is perfect, and her way of scooting under the bottom rope is perfect.
10 School Girl Battle Royal
Trish. Stratus. School. Girl. Outfit.
Okay I know I have to say more than that, but I want everyone to let that sink in. Along with other sexy divas like Victoria, Gail Kim, Stacy Keibler, and Nidia, Trish competed in a School Girl Battle Royal at 2004’s Taboo Tuesday.
9 Stacy Keibler's Lapdance
During a 2003 run as Scott Steiner and Test’s manager, Stacy Keibler treated the WWE (and Steiner) to a short lap dance/strip show. The dance begins with Keibler rubbing her leg on Steiner’s neck, and showing the world just why her theme song was “Legs” during her tenure in WWE.
8 Sable's Hand Bikini
7 Mickie James Lusts After Trish Stratus
Mickie James debuted in WWE as a superfan of Trish Stratus, and her fandom quickly became an obsession. James mimicked Stratus’ moves and gestures, and snuck a kiss from the Women’s Champion under a Christmas mistletoe.
6 Kelly Kelly's Striptease
5 Lita’s Live Sex Show
Before the onset of the PG era, the WWE was a more ruthless and unfiltered place. A perfect example of this mentality would be having a celebratory sex session in the middle of the ring after winning the WWE Championship. Edge, who was the hottest heel in the company at the time, gave fans a real show when he had "hot, unbridled sex” with Lita on an episode of Raw in 2006.
4 Kat Flashes Her Puppies
Stacy Carter didn’t have much talent in the ring when she was signed to the WWE in 1999, but what she did have was a husband who had some pull. Being married to Jerry Lawler provided Carter, who wrestled under the name “Miss Kitty” and “The Kat”, enough clout to actually be featured on a few pay per views.
3 Sable and Torrie Wilson's Bikini Contest
Maybe their 2004 Playboy cover was already in the works when Torrie Wilson and Sable had their bikini contest at Judgement Day in 2003. Torrie was hot off the heels of being a Playboy Bunny, and Sable reemerged to challenge her for sexy supremacy.
2 The Playboy covers
1 Dawn Marie Seduces Torrie Wilson
Full disclosure here, I always thought Dawn Marie was overrated in the looks department, but even I can’t deny that her feud with Torrie Wilson provided its share of great moments. One specifically where Dawn Marie blackmailed Wilson to join her in a hotel room is particularly enticing. Basically to protect her father from Dawn, Torrie needed to participate in some of Dawn’s lesbian fantasies.
What started as a conversation, quickly evolved into what seemed like a softcore porno on network television. Dawn stripped down Torrie, then herself, and finally started making out with the beautiful blonde. Just in case WWE thought viewers might not be able to pick up on what was happening, the phrase “only a woman knows how to make another woman feel good” was used during the encounter.
