Perhaps my love of comic books is fueling this, but for me there is no better costume than Melina Perez dressing up as “Spider-Woman” of Marvel Comics. The costume itself is just perfect. Who wouldn’t want to see Melina in skintight latex?
Even though most Divas and Knockouts are beautiful, Melina is one of the few who can realistically pull off a comic book character. I say this because of how fantastical super heroes are drawn, especially female ones. Most female comic characters are drawn so provocatively that it is almost impossible to find someone in real life that fits those proportions.
Melina Perez does.
I do not think I appreciated Melina enough when she was with the WWE. Now that she is gone I realize how much I miss her flashy entrances and her unique move set in the ring. No one would argue that Melina was not drop dead gorgeous, but she was also a very capable competitor in the ring.
Melina is a perfect combination of stunning beauty and superior in-ring talent. If she was in the WWE today it would be impossible to run this storyline of “pretty divas” vs. “strong divas” because Melina is both. Perhaps it’s telling that the WWE today has to split the Diva’s into categories of “beautiful” and “talented.” When Melina was with the company she proved on a daily basis that you could be gorgeous and still be one of the best wrestlers in the company.
Since I dubbed Melina’s Spider-Woman costume as the sexiest, I decided to give the five time champion some props above.
I would love to hear your reaction to my picks. Also, make sure to let me know who your favorite costumed Divas or Knockouts are. Unlike more serious pieces, there are no wrong answers for a list like this.
Lastly, make sure to follow me on Twitter @ClassicJoeyMac. I have really enjoyed the feedback and questions I have been getting lately. Plus you can hear more corny jokes and puns from yours truly.
Thanks everyone and keep it Classic!
