Top 18 Hottest WWE Divas

Sexiest Women Wrestling Divas

As a fitness trainer, I know the level of discipline and hard work it takes to maintain a toned physique and good looks all year round. But these WWE female superstars seem to do it effortlessly.

In honor of these women’s fantastic work and the entertainment they’ve brought us, we’ve made a list of some of the hottest WWE female wrestlers that have graced the squared circle.

This list is solely based on beauty, not skills and performance.

18. Mickie James

Mickie James is not just another name in the WWE; she's an icon. As one of WWE's most accomplished Divas, Mickie's combination of mic skills and captivating presence sets her apart.

Nearing 40, her enviable physique and undiminished wrestling prowess remain awe-inspiring. I was there live one evening, the crowd roaring, as Mickie demonstrated a level of athleticism that defied age, reminding us all of the legend she truly is.

17. Maria Kanellis

Maria Kanellis is a vision in the WWE universe. With her radiant blonde locks, piercing blue eyes, and impeccable features, she effortlessly captured the spotlight.

While her initial WWE portrayal might have evoked more of a cheerleader's allure than that of a pro wrestler, it's undeniable that her beauty resonated deeply with fans, including myself.

From her 2008 debut to now, she's maintained a consistent allure, exuding both grace and charisma. Her appearance, an enchanting blend of strength and elegance, has earned her a spot in the hearts of many.

16. April Jeanette

April Jeanette Mendez, popularly known by her WWE ring name, AJ Lee, is an embodiment of beauty and charisma.

Born on March 19, 1987, in Union City, New Jersey, her striking features and unique style have always set her apart. With her alluring brunette locks and distinctive flair, AJ Lee has become an icon in the world of WWE.

She’s proof to my clients that with the right mix of tenacity and charm, the world is yours to conquer. AJ embodies beauty, but it’s her spirit that makes her unforgettable.

15. Stacy Keibler

Taking the top spot in our hottest WWE divas list is none other than Stacy Keibler. Born on October 14, 1979, in Maryland, USA, her career began after winning WCW’s nationwide search for a new Nitro Girl.

Her stunning looks, coupled with her undeniable talent, quickly catapulted her to stardom, making her a fan favorite.

I remember seeing her live. She had the crowd on their feet, a vivid memory that underscores her iconic status.

Earlier in her career, she participated and finished third place in season two of “Dancing with the Stars.” During her stint in the show, judge Bruno Tonioli called her “The Weapon of Mass Seduction.” We do not doubt that.

She dated George Clooney from 2011 to 2013. Today, she is happily married to Future Ads CEO Jared Pobre. They have two children together.

14. Maryse

Maryse was born on January 21, 1983, in Montreal, Canada. Maryse broke into the wrestling scene as a finalist in the 2006 Diva Search competition like the other female wrestlers on this list.

Her fierce determination and natural athleticism set her apart, paving the way for a successful career in the WWE. It reminds me of when I was starting my fitness journey.

In addition to becoming the first-ever two-time Divas Champion, the French-Canadian wrestler held that title for 216 days in a single reign, making her one of the longest-running award holders in WWE history.

Maryse is also an extremely talented manager who guided her fellow contenders to succeed in their wrestling careers. She left WWE in October 2011 and returned in April 2016 to help her husband, The Miz, bag his fifth Intercontinental Championship.

Currently, Maryse stars in “Miz and Mrs.” with her husband and their two daughters.

13. Trish Stratus

Trish Stratus'  transition from modeling to wrestling was seamless, demonstrating her versatility and commitment to the sport, something that I always encourage my female clients to follow.

In 2003, this gorgeous and talented wrestler was crowned as “Diva of the Decade.”

This Canadian beauty was seen as mere eye candy during the early days of her career, but Trish proved her detractors wrong when she began competing in 2001.

In November of the same year, she won her first Women’s Championship and went on to win that title seven times over the succeeding five years.

Trish Stratus retired from wrestling in 2006 and took her rightful place in the WWE Hall of Fame in 2013.

She is currently married to Ron Fisico, with whom she has two children.

12. Eve Torres

Eve Torres isn't just another pretty face on our hottest divas list. She's a powerhouse, both in and out of the ring.

With a purple belt in Brazilian jiu-jitsu and an engineering degree, she's a rare combo of brains and brawn.

Born in 1984 in Colorado, she's been in the spotlight for a while, first as a dancer for the LA Clippers and then as a WWE Diva. I've seen many athletes in my time as a fitness trainer, but few with such a diverse background.

11. Torrie Wilson

Born on July 24, 1975, Torrie Wilson, with her striking blonde locks and toned physique, Torrie just misses our top 10 hottest WWE divas list.

Her entry into sports entertainment began when she and her boyfriend attended the 1999 World Championship Wrestling show.

Torrie occasionally competed in WCW and joined WWE after the company purchased WCW in 2001.

From my fitness training days, I've seen few like Torrie Wilson. She was a cornerstone in WWE's women's division, locking horns with icons like Stacy Keibler.

Injuries benched her in 2008, but she bounced back, launching 'Torrie Wilson Fit'.

In 2018, she rocked the Women’s Royal Rumble. And, no surprise, she clinched a spot in WWE's Hall of Fame 2019.

10. Nikki Bella

Nikki Bella was born on November 21, 1994, in San Diego, California, making her the youngest diva on this list.

Nikki signed a contract with WWE in 2007 and was assigned to Florida Championship Wrestling. She competed in her first match in November 2008 together with her sister Brie Bella.

Nikki eventually came out of her sister's shadow and became one of the best female wrestlers of recent times.

A severe neck injury could’ve been a game-ender, but not for Nikki. Post-intensive rehab, her comeback was nothing short of legendary. I was in the crowd that night - the energy was palpable.

She became a Divas Champion and ranked at the top spot in 2015’s Pro Wrestling Illustrated Female 50. That same year, Rolling Stone awarded Nikki Bella with Diva of the Year.

9. Alexa Bliss

One of the hottest WWE divas to ever compete in the ring is Alexa Bliss. Born on August 9, 1991, Alexa is an experienced athlete who has been involved in sports since she was five, competing in kickboxing, track, gymnastics, and softball. She was also a cheerleader in her high school.

Her dedication to fitness is evident in her rigorous training regimen which includes specialized workouts focusing on enhancing her agility, strength, and endurance, ensuring she's always ready to give an unforgettable performance in the ring.

Alexa Bliss signed with the company in 2013 as part of its NXT brand, growing to become one of the most outstanding female wrestlers of her time. She got the nickname “Wicked Witch” of WWE.

This record-setting Superstar is the first wrestler to hold Raw and SmackDown Women’s Champion in her gallery. She won the Raw Championship three times and the SmackDown Championship twice.

8. Billie Kay

Of course, our hottest WWE divas list wouldn’t be complete without the other half of The IIconics, Billie Kay.

Born on June 23, 1989, Billie watched wrestling programs with her brother as a young girl, a habit that got her interested in the sport. Her professional wrestling career began in 2007 when she debuted on Pro Wrestling Alliance Australia on her 18th birthday.

Billie spent eight years establishing her presence in the independent scene and joining several wrestling promotions before signing with NXT in 2015.

Being part of a tag team isn’t easy, but this Superstar and her partner Peyton had many defining moments that revealed their best traits as wrestlers.

“More enduringly than any other sport, wrestling teaches self-control and pride. Some have wrestled without great skill - none have wrestled without pride.”

- Dan Gable, Former Folkstyle & Freestyle Wrestler


Unfortunately, the team split up. The Iconic was forced to disband after losing a tag team match on Raw, but Billie signed as a free agent with SmackDown in the 2020 WWE Draft.

7. Peyton Royce

With her pretty face and her stunning physique, Peyton Royce ranks ninth on our list.

Born on November 10, 1992, in New South Wales, Australia, Peyton Royce grew up pursuing dance, which explains her fluid movement in the ring.

Like AJ, she competed in a series of indies before signing with WWE in 2015, where she was assigned to WWE’s NXT in Orlando, Florida.

Peyton Royce is one-half of The IIconics tag team she shares with her real-life best friend and fellow Australian, Billie Kay.

They are both former Women’s Tag Team Champions.

6. AJ Lee

One look at AJ Lee, and you’ll know why she made it to our hottest female wrestlers list. Born on March 19, 1987, AJ was influenced by her brother’s interest in WWE.

She performed in indie circuits and Florida Championship Wrestling before debuting on SmackDown in 2011.

AJ was also a general manager at Raw for a few months. Her career took off when she became a regular participant in main event segments on Raw and SmackDown. She appeared in the most unpredictable storylines that had her fans hooked, anticipating her next move.

Apart from her undeniable beauty, AJ Lee is a phenomenal fighter to boot. She’s one of the most accomplished female wrestlers the sport has seen in recent years, having won the WWE Divas Championship and Slammy Award three times. She retired in April 2015—a decision that fans believe is related to the controversial exit of former WWE superstar CM Punk from the organization.

5. Paige

Born in '92 into a wrestling dynasty, Paige started young at 13 in her family's UK-based promotion.

Beyond her striking looks, she's a powerhouse in the ring. From my fitness training lens, her dedication is evident.

After touring Europe, she joined WWE in 2001. In 2013, she clinched both the NXT Women’s and Divas Championships simultaneously—a first in WWE. Her 308-day NXT reign remains unmatched.

Beyond her in-ring achievements, Paige has a significant social media presence. She engages with fans regularly, sharing insights into her wrestling journey and personal life, fostering a strong, interactive community that extends her influence beyond the ring.

4. Brooke Tessmacher Adams

Next up on our hottest WWE Divas list is American wrestler Brooke Nichole. Born on December 4, 1984, in Missouri, USA, Brooke only enjoyed a brief WWE career.

Brooke didn’t flourish during her WWE days, but things turned around when she explored TNA wrestling, winning the TNA knockout championship three times.

Thanks to her gorgeous face and body, this stunning queen is also active in modeling. Even now, her Instagram is filled with these pictures, allowing her to maintain a decent size of followers.

Brooke eventually married her trainer Weston Wayne Piper, with whom she had two children.

3. Ravishing Russian Lana

Born in '85 with Portuguese and Venezuelan heritage, Lana's WWE presence is undeniable. From my fitness trainer lens, her in-ring agility is a testament to hard work.

Though Florida-born and without Russian ties, she's mastered the "Ravishing Russian Lana" act with that accent.

Before her wrestling days, she dabbled in medicine and film.

I've always admired her dedication, not just in wrestling but in her philanthropic endeavors too. It's a side of her that resonates with fans worldwide.

She's not only managing Rusev, whom she tied the knot with in 2016 but also shines on 'Total Bellas'.

2. Rosa Mendes

Claiming the 14th spot on our hottest Divas list is Costa Rican-Czech beauty Rosa Mendes. Rosa Mendes was born on October 25, 1979, and raised in Vancouver, Canada.

She participated in the 2006 Divas Search and won fourth place before joining the WWE Female Superstars roster in 2008.

The former model performed in all three brands of her time—Raw, SmackDown, and ECW.

Rosa’s advantage over the other female wrestlers is her training in kickboxing and Brazilian jiu-jitsu.

This curvaceous wrestler boasts a beautiful face and sweet smile, making her a favorite among many WWE fans.

Rosa Mendes also starred in the reality show Total Divas as one of the main casts.

1. Natalya Neidhart

Natalya, born on May 27, 1982, in Alberta, Canada, is the first wrestler of the third female generation to join WWE. She came from an accomplished wrestling family and learned the sport from her uncles Ross and Bruce Hart.

Natalya debuted in 2008 and won the titles WWE Divas Champion in 2010 and SmackDown Women’s Champion in 2017.

In the earlier days of her career, she managed the tag team of her husband, TJ Wilson (now known as Tyson Kidd) and cousin D.H. Smith.

She’s also one of the most technically gifted female wrestlers in the current line-up.

Aside from her wrestling gig, Natalya also appeared in the first season of the reality TV show Total Bellas.
