WWE Forgotten Beauties: 10 Overlooked Divas
There are countless "WWE's hottest Divas" lists all over the web, but real beauty often seems to be put aside. Apparently, males prefer under-110-pounds-skeleton-thin women, but not me.
I prefer women with some meat who look healthy. I am not a fan of anorexic look Divas.
Don't be afraid. The wrestling women in the following slideshow are real beauties but too often forgotten. These are the 10 overlooked WWE ladies who usually won't appear on the usual Divas lists.
These are my personal picks and the No. 1 on the list is the hottest Diva in my book.
You will also discover that most of the ladies who feature on that list have made their mark in pro wrestling history.
10. Gail Kim
The skinniest lady on my list, Gail Kim is an exotic beauty who's too often overlooked on Hottest Divas lists. We don't see her ribs bones and she looks healthy.
She is a former TNA and WWE Women's Champion, so she is not just another wrestler. With her in-ring ability and her impressive move set, it's a shame she doesn't get the exposure she deserves.
Will she get a push if she loses 10 pounds?
A lady all in muscles, but not as excessive as Chyna. She also has that little something in her face.
That powerful but sexy woman was dominating in the ring. She is a three-time WWE Women's Champion and she was a pillar of the women's division in the early 2000s.
8. Wendi Richter
She could look like a pop star or like a rock 'n' roll rebel with no problem; she was the prototype of beauty in the 1980s. She didn't need to uncover herself to look great.
There is also a lot of history around that Diva of the old days.
She is a two-time Women's Champion, and she was the leader of the Rock 'n' Wrestling Connection Era. In fact, she was almost as popular as Hulk Hogan when she battled at the first Wrestlemania.
She is also the victim of the Original Screwjob involving the Fabulous Moolah in disguise. At the time, it was as controversial as the Montreal Screwjob in 1997; the referee, also in on the plan, gave a quick three-count even though Richter escaped at the count of one.
7. The Fabulous Moolah
The greatest Diva ever in term of accomplishments and longevity is, without a doubt, The Fabulous Moolah.
She is the woman with the longest Championship reigns, and no one will ever come close to her 10,778 days as champion. In comparison, Trish Stratus, the runner-up, held the title for a total of 828 days.
As you can see, she was not exactly super sexy, but she was a classic beauty in the 1950s. At the age of 76 in 1999, when she became the oldest champion in pro-wrestling history, she was not as beautiful as in her prime but she was still here.
That makes me wonder what will become of the current Divas, at their prime in their twenties, in 20 years? They will be totally forgotten.
If The Fabulous Moolah is now a forgotten beauty, she will at least be remembered forever for what she accomplished in the business.
6. Velvet McIntyre
Nice curves for a 150-pound woman, eh? She looks like a real woman, and that is the source of her charm. She is that beautiful woman any man will turn his head to watch on the street.
In addition to her natural beauty, she had outstanding athletic abilities, and she was very popular with the crowds in the late 1980s. She is a one-time Women's Champion and a two-time Tag Team Women's Champion.
5. Alundra Blayze
A nice athletic body at 150 pounds, she is beautiful and even has a femme fatale look.
Sexy and dangerous: what a nice mix.
More than that, she was meant to revive the Women's Division in 1993 after a three-year deactivation. She became the most popular Diva of the mid-1990s and won the Women's Title three times, but she was the only serious one in the Division. The WWE tried on some occasions to get her some challenge, but they failed.
She then left the WWE with the belt and threw it in the basket on a WCW televised show.
4. Sensational Sherri
She is probably most remembered as the crazy yelling manager of Randy "Macho Man" Savage or Shawn Michaels, with her exaggerated make-up. She didn't look bad then, but she looked awesome in her wrestling years as you can see on the pics.
She did nothing big as a wrestler in WWE, but the nickname "Sensational" fits her very well. She was a wild beauty, and she is another forgotten beauty.
I like the way she walks. I like the way she enters the ring with the Hart Dynasty. It's a shame she doesn't feature on more "Sexiest Divas" lists.
She is not tall like the usual Divas, but she lights up the room with her charismatic presence. She is not the usual hottie, but she has that little something in her eyes.
She has a lot to show in a ring and she is more than due for her deserved push.
Look at her pics. Is there really anyone who will say she is not gorgeous?
2. Mae Young
Look at her: She once was a real bombshell. She looked like an Hollywood Actress then.
The Hall-of-Famer's stint in WWE only started in 1999, at the age of 76, as The Fabulous Moolah's friend and manager.
In the following few years, she was part of some of the creepiest moments in WWE history. She dated Mark Henry then gave birth to a hand. She also won the Royal Rumble 2000 bikini contest.
In her prime wrestling years, she worked for Stu Hart's promotion and for the Mildred Burke's World Women's Wrestling Association (WWWA); she then won the first ever NWA's U.S. Women's Championship.
While the men were called overseas during World War II, she contributed a lot to put women's wrestling on the map, in association with Mildred Burke (a pioneer in pro wrestling). Young also trained The Fabulous Moolah.
1. Beth Phoenix
The perfect beauty with her angelic face on that Glamazon body. Her unique shape is a masterpiece, and she is not skinny at all. With her "big" 150 pounds, she looks better than any other featured on any Hottest Divas List.
She is one of the most dominating ladies in WWE history, and she is for me the greatest incarnation of what a Diva should be. The WWE marketing department presents the Divas as "Sexy, Smart, Powerful," and Beth Pheonix is the epitome of that.
A three-time Women's Champion and Diva of the Year 2008, she is one of the best in-ring performers of all times. If the WWE does it right, she could become a legend and leave her mark in pro wrestling history books.
With her absence, the Women's Division is suffering a lot. Hopefully her injury won't keep her on the sideline for too long.
