Several factors influence a wrestler’s success—their in-ring skills, promotional skills, and physical attractiveness.

Power and beauty are a lethal combination, and many female athletes bring those elements into the ring.

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 female wrestlers that have graced the squared circle.

Summary of the Key Findings

  • The roles of women in the WWE have changed over the years. From being managers and presenters, they were eventually included in the sport as professional wrestlers.
  • Female wrestlers aren’t merely “eye candy,” although that was the notion back then. They are recruited for their wrestling aptitude
  • WWE would never have achieved such commercial success without these powerful and sexy women superstars, as they provide the much-needed contrast to the vigorous men who fight on stage.

Women In The WWE

Women played several vital roles in wrestling throughout the WWE’s 41-year history.

From managers to presenters, women were eventually introduced to the sport as wrestlers and called “Divas.”

In 2016, the WWE started referring to its female wrestlers as “Women Superstars” or simply “Superstars.”

Top 15 Hottest WWE Divas

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.

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.

3. Ravishing Russian Lana

Lana is one of the hottest female wrestlers in the WWE, and this diva has no issue living in accordance with her fame.

Lana was born on March 24, 1985, to Portuguese and Venezuelan parents.

She has no direct connection to Russia, but she uses a Russian accent when performing, hence the moniker “Ravishing Russian Lana.”

The Florida-born Superstar pursued a medical career and acted in several movies before entering the world of pro wrestling managing Rusev, whom she married in 2016.

Lana has had several reality TV show appearances, including Total Bellas, in which she is one of the main casts.

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.

She was part of Extreme Expose with Kelly Kelly and Layla, where she had a few in-ring appearances.

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.

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

Born on August 17, 1992, to a family of wrestlers, Paige debuted at the age of 13 in the Norwich UK-based World Association of Wrestling, a promotion run by her family.

With her pale skin, jet black hair, and sexy body, Paige is a true beauty.

But she’s not all eye-candy—this diva is a skilled wrestler with several achievements under her belt.

Paige traveled across Europe and performed in many different circuits before joining WWE in 2001.

Paige won the NXT Women’s Championship in 2013 and became the Divas Champion, making her the first and only wrestler in the history of WWE to hold both titles at the same time.

Her 308-day reign as the NXT Women’s champion is also the longest in the title’s history.

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, former WWE superstar CM Punk from the organization.

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.

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 and Freestyle Wrestler

The IIconics' most remarkable moment happened during WrestleMania 25 when they won a Fatal 4-Way Match to capture the WWE Women’s Tag Team Titles.

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.

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.

After graduating college, she entered fitness competitions, including the Arnold Classic.

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.

This sexy bombshell’s star shone even more when she won an Elimination Chamber match, being the first-ever female wrestler to do so.

Alexa Bliss has made the favorites list of many WWE fans worldwide with her fantastic character and smashing looks.

Nikki signed a contract with WWE in 2007 and was assigned to Florida Championship Wrestling.

Before she debuted on SmackDown, she performed as a secret double for her sister, Brie Bella.

She competed in her first match in November 2008 together with her.

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

Torrie Wilson quickly takes the fifth spot in our hottest WWE divas list with her blonde hair and athletic body.

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 [1].

She became a vital member of the WWE’s women’s division, engaging in memorable rivalries with her fellow Superstars, including Stacy Keibler, Sable, and Melina.

Injuries compelled Torrie to quit wrestling in 2008. Soon after, she started her business, a brand called Torrie Wilson Fit.

In 2018, she returned to the squared circle to participate in the first-ever Women’s Royal Rumble Match.

Torrie has secured her place in sports entertainment history after being named a WWE Hall of Fame’s Class of 2019.

12. Eve Torres

Eve Torres has it all—beauty, brains, and fighting skills, which is why she’s at the fourth spot on our hottest divas list.

It’s not often you see a WWE Diva who holds a purple belt in Brazilian jiu-jitsu and an industrial and systems engineering degree.

She was born on August 21, 1984, in Colorado, USA. Before entering the wrestling scene, she worked as a model and dancer for the Los Angeles Clippers Spirit Dance Team, so she’s no stranger to performing in front of thousands of spectators.

Eve won the 2007 Diva Search and trained at the Ohio Valley Wrestling, a WWE developmental territory. The following year, she made her WWE debut on the SmackDown brand.

In 2010, she became the first Diva Search winner also to capture the WWE Divas Championship. In 2013, she became a WWE ambassador.

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.

With her athleticism and craftiness, she quickly rose through the ranks and became one of the hottest divas in the ring.

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 [2].

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.

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. She was also a manager for different wrestlers such as Test and Scott Steiner.

Stacy Keibler came to WWE when WCW was sold to the company. She engaged in memorable matches with other dazzling Superstars like Trish Stratus, Molly Holly, and Victoria.

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.

Stacy also appeared in several TV shows like “Chuck and “Psych” and modeled for magazines like “Stuff” and “Maxim.”

This sexy diva was dubbed “The Legs of WCW” and “The Legs of WWE” because of her 42-inch legs that seem to go on forever.
