The 12 Best Women Wrestlers Of Right Now
With the current state of the WWE Women’s division and the numerous articles here about it, I have decided to write about the best women wrestlers right now. Yes, we know the Divas suck, but let’s give some props to the women who are doing it right. Some of these are free agents, so WWE might want to give them a call.
ODB (Jessica Kresa)
Height: 5’6 Weight: 155 pounds Debut: August 2001
Accomplishments: ODB is a three-time TNA Women’s Knockout Champion.
Why: ODB is the Stone Cold Steve Austin of wrestling. She’s the beer drinking, butt slapping side of us that we all wish we could bring out. She’s a full figured woman and wears it proudly. She can wrestle well, and can talk (Trash Talkin’ with ODB). TNA could use ODB right now. All I’ve got left to say is BAMMM!
Tara/Victoria (Lisa Varon)
Height: 5’8 Weight: 155 pounds Debut: June 2000
Accomplishments: Lisa is a three-time TNA Knockout Champion and a two-time WWE Women’s Champion.
Why: Tara or Victoria, whatever you wanna call her, is good at wrestling; it's as simple as that. She has one of the most devastating finishers I’ve seen (Widow’s Peak) and that cool submission move she does on the ring ropes. Now that Tara’s back in TNA she is a huge addition.
Height: 5’4 Weight: 123 pounds Debut: April 2002
Accomplishments: Melina is a three-time WWE Women’s Champion and a one-time WWE Divas Champion. She is the third woman to capture both titles
Why: It’s pretty sad that she’s injured. She is an amazing wrestler. She needs to turn heel and feud with Eve. She can guide Eve through matches and create a watchable feud. She is scheduled to return sometime this summer. Good thing, because the Raw Divas really need her.
Height: 5’6 Weight: 128 pounds Debut: 1998
Accomplishments: Jillian is a one-time WWE Divas Champion.
Why: First off, her bad-singing gimmick is played out and needs to stop. She can wrestle, and should probably teach some of the other Divas’ some moves. She doesn’t really do much, so I could see WWE firing her in the near future. If they turn her face she could be a credible champion, so I hope not.
Height: 5’5 Weight: 135 pounds Debut: 2000
Why: She is an awesome wrestler, but we never see her wrestle. She’s always out with The Hart Dynasty. She could easily be Women’s Champion and put on PPV quality matches. Is she gonna manage The Hart Dynasty her whole career? I think we all agree that we need to see more of Natalya.
Daffney (Shannon Spruill)
Height: 5’6 Weight: 130 pounds Debut: November 1999
Why: Daffney is crazy. From the way she walks to the ring and her amazing tattoos, to the way she screams in the middle of the ring, it’s all crazy. Her moves compliment her style flawlessly and she knows how to sell other wrestlers' moves. Up until now she’s been underutilized, but I can see that changing in the next few months.
Height: 5’4 Weight: 130 pounds Debut: March 2005
Why: The S.E.S. bad girl. Serena can wrestle. It’s just we’ve never seen her wrestle. She could easily be the Women’s Champion. Not only would this help the Women’s division, but it would make the S.E.S. a legit threat.
Height: 5’4 Weight: 125 pounds Debut: December 2000
Accomplishments: Gail is a one-time TNA Knockout Champion and a one-time WWE Women’s Champion. She is the first female to have held both titles.
Why: This is who should be the Divas champion. The reason why she isn’t is because she went to TNA. But I mean come on, Vince, get over it! She’s like the only diva on Raw that can wrestle and is over with fans! She is so underrated and wrestles nearly all of her matches on Superstars. Next time I see WWE live, I’m bringing a Gail Kim sign.
Awesome Kong (Kia Stevens)
Height: 6’0 Weight: 272 pounds Debut: August 2002
Accomplishments: Awesome Kong is a two-time TNA Women’s Knockout Champion and a one-time TNA Knockout Tag Team Champion.
Why: Awesome Kong is huge and is good for the Women’s Division. She brings power, strength, and wrestling ability. She’s pretty fast in the ring (considering her weight) and can bring a good match out of anyone. Maybe once Hogan and Bischoff leave TNA, she’ll come back and strengthen the division.
Height: 5’10 Weight: 135 pounds Debut: November 2004
Accomplishments: Michelle is a one-time WWE Divas Champion and a two-time WWE Women’s Champion. She is the first person ever to have held both titles.
Why: She’s a great wrestler and has improved tremendously over the years. Her finisher (Faith Breaker) is one of the most devastating finishers in the Women’s division. But her character is quickly becoming repetitive and boring. She is currently “co-WWE Women’s Champion” with Layla.
Height: 5’7 Weight: 154 pounds Debut: May 2001
Accomplishments: Beth is a three-time WWE Women’s Champion. She is also the second woman to enter the Royal Rumble.
Why: The new Chyna. Her finisher (Glam Slam) is a brutal. Her strength is amazing. I can’t wait until she comes back and regains the Women’s Championship.
Height: 5’4 Weight: 122 pounds Debut: 1999
Accomplishments: Mickie is a five-time WWE Women’s Champion and a one-time WWE Divas Champion. She is the second diva to have held both the Women’s and Divas titles.
Why: Oh Mickie, we miss you so much! Mickie James was one of the best women wrestlers left in the WWE before she was released. Her matches with Trish Stratus and Michelle McCool are classics. Now, with her gone and others (Beth Phoenix and Melina) injured, the WWE Women’s division is left to cheerleaders, dancers, and former models. Dixie Carter was seen at Mickie James’ album release party, so we can hope that Mickie will go to TNA.
Well, there are the best women wrestlers right now. Hopefully WWE and TNA will realize what amazing talents these are and use them properly.
Feel free to comment (:
