Who are the most beautiful wrestlers?
Again, this is a departure from the way I usually look at female wrestlers.
I am always harping about wrestling skill versus looks, but in this case I'm making an exception.
And we know these ladies looks are a big part in selling those tickets and pay-per-views.
Here are what I personally think are the the most beautiful women wrestlers working for the WWE and TNA today.
I'm only dealing with current wrestlers, not former wrestlers like Trish Stratus, Torrie Wilson, Candice Michelle, Maria and Sable.
Update: Since I wrote this...two of these ladies have gone into the category of "former wrestlers".
1. Nikki Bella
Love her or hate her, Nikki Bella is one of the most beautiful women in wrestling.
I know she and Brie are supposed to be twins, but Nikki just looks better I think.
Nikki's second reign of 301 days was the longest in the WWE Divas Title so far.
And in 2015, Pro Wrestling Illustrated's Female 50 had Nikki ranked as number one.
Stephanie Nicole Garcia-Colace was born on November 21, 1983 in San Diego, California, United States.
She has been with the WWE since 2007.
Nikki is currently taking an extended break from in-ring competition
On August 21st, 2013, Nikki returned to the WWE.
Nikki Bella vs. Natalya
2. Tara (TNA Knockout)
I gotta admit, as much as I love Lisa Marie Varon, this kinda surprised me.
I'm guessing a lot of wrestling fans still like their female wrestlers to look like female wrestlers and not swimsuit models.
And I have heard a few comments online that Tara's "rear view" is incredible for a woman in her 40s.
(Okay...I tried to put that as delicately as I could)
Despite all that, Lisa has been in the squared circle for going on thirteen years as a WWE Diva and TNA Knockout and I think she deserves all the accolades she gets.
On July 16th, 2013, Lisa was released from her TNA contract.
3. Naomi (WWE Diva)
Another surprise for me is WWE Diva Naomi coming in at number three.
I expected her to win NXT when she was on it and I hoped she would do more in the WWE than dance, because I think she has amazing ring skills.
It looks like she may finally get the chance because at the pre-show of the TLC pay-per-view on December 16th, 2012, Naomi won the "Santa's Little Helpers" battle royal and became the number one contender for the Divas Championship.
Okay she did lose to Eve...but it's a start.
4. Alexa Bliss (WWE Diva)
Beautiful Alexis "Lexi" Kaufman is better known to WWE fans as Alexa Bliss.
Alexa was born on August 9th, 1991 in Columbus, Ohio.
Before wrestling she was an IFBB Pro bikini competitor, not an IFBB Bodybuilder.
Those are two separate things.
She competed from 2010 to 2013 when she signed a contract with WWE.
Alexa debuted in 2016 on SmackDown after training in NXT and went on to become the first Diva to win the Raw and the SmackDown women's championships.
5. WWE NXT Diva Peyton Royce
Gorgeous female wrestler Cassie McIntosh was born on November 10th 1992, in Sydney, New South Wales, Australia.
She is better known to her fans as WWE NXT Diva Peyton Royce.
This five foot seven, 132 pound beauty made her pro wrestling debut in 2009 in Austrailia working for Pro Wrestling Women's Alliance (PWWA) as KC Cassidy.
In 2015 she joined the WWE and is currently BFFs with fellow WWE NXT Diva Billie Kay (Jessie McKay) who she has worked with since her days in the PWWA.
6. Mickie James (TNA Knockout)
Okay, who doesn't like Mickie James?
I have read compliments and comments about her body all over the web...LOL
She seems to just have a certain "look" you know?
Mickie was born on August 31st, 1979 in Montpelier, Virginia.
Before she left the WWE, she held both the WWE Women's Championship (four times) and the WWE Divas Championship.
Now in TNA she has held the TNA Women's Knockout Championship twice.
On September 16th, 2013, Mickie was released from her TNA contract.
7. Gail Kim (TNA Knockout)
TNA Knockout Gail Kim started out as a WWE Diva, went to TNA and became a Knockout, went back to the WWE and then back to TNA!
She was born in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, on February 20th, 1977 and made her pro wrestling debut in Canada in December of 2000 as a masked wrestler, "The Queen of the Cats" La Felina.
Interestingly, she would be unmasked in a match by Traci Brooks, who she would work with years later in TNA.
Gail has held the TNA Knockouts Tag Team Championship (with Madison Rayne) and the TNA Women's Knockout Championship twice.
Her second reign with the belt was the longest so far in the history of TNA, 210 days.
Gail was also the very first TNA Women's Knockout Champion.
8. Velvet Sky (TNA Knockout)
Coming in at number 8 is TNA Knockout Velvet Sky.
This is a HUGE drop for Vels.
Jamie Szantyr was born on June 2nd, 1981, in New Britain, Connecticut.
Like most of the TNA Knockouts, she worked her way up through the ranks to get to where she is today.
She is part of The Beautiful People faction at TNA, and as such, she has held one half of the TNA Women's Knockout Championship belts.
While Kelly is more popular, I think Velvet is way better looking.
Velvet has held the TNA Knockouts Tag Team Championship and the TNA Women's Knockout Championship.
On April 22nd, 2016, Velvet left TNA for the third time.
9. Rosa Mendes (WWE Diva)
Rosa Mendes (Milena Roucka) is another one of those Divas I really didn't expect to last long.
She started out as a swimsuit model and went into the WWE in the 2006 Diva Search which she lost, but was still signed to a contract anyway.
She went to Ohio Valley Wrestling (OVW) then Florida Championship Wrestling (FCW) and finally wound up on RAW in what I hoped would be a replay of the Mickie James/Trish Stratus storyline with Beth Phoenix...but it was not to be.
Although she does get in the ring occasionally, she is usually confined to the manager/valet position.
10. Aksana (Zivile Raudoniene)
WWE Diva Aksana started out as a promising Lithuanian fitness model and bodybuilder, winning first place at the 2009 Arnold Classic.
Everyone thought she was going to dominate the competitions until she signed with the WWE and went to Florida Championship Wrestling (FCW) for training.
She stayed there for awhile and then went into the "Big Leagues" as WWE Diva Aksana.
Although she was the FCW Divas Champion and the Queen of FCW, so far the WWE Womens Championship has eluded her.
Like most of their other Divas, the WWE seems satified with Aksana just standing at ringside and looking pretty.
Though she does occasionally get into the ring as a "Heel".
Aksana was released from the WWE in June of 2014.
11. Taryn Terrell (WWE and TNA)
Although TNA Knockout Taryn Terrell has left the company (who can blame her?) she is still one of the most beautiful women to ever grace a ring.
She was born on December 28, 1985 in New Orleans, Louisiana, and made her pro wrestling debut not in TNA but in the WWE where she was Tiffany.
Besides wrestling she is a model, actress and stunt woman.
Though she has left TNA...who knows?
She's only 30.
She has plenty of time to come back.
12. WWE Diva Eva Marie
Natalie Marie Coyle better known as WWE Diva Eva Marie is not the greatest wrestler in the world.
But she is one of the hottest.
And she seems to have become the WWE's Poster Girl, despite her lack of in-ring skills.
Well...you know Trish started out as a fitness model before the WWE.
So there is always hope.
13. Sasha Banks - "The Boss"
"The Boss" Sasha Banks was born Mercedes Kaestner-Varnado on January 26th, 1992 in Fairfield, California, United States.
She is the cousin of Snoop Dogg and has been wrestling since her debut back in 2010.
Sasha is five foot five, 114 pounds and she started wrestling for the WWE in 2012.
So far in the WWE she has held the NXT Women's Championship.
14. Becky Lynch
Wonderful Irish accent.
Body of a fitness model.
14 years of wrestling experience.
Catherine Joy "C.J." Perry is better known to WWE fans as Lana.
Lana was born on March 24th, 1985 in Gainesville, Florida.
Although Lana's main duties appear to be managing Rusev (her fiance Miroslav Barnyashev), she has made it known that she would like to wrestle.
The Most Beautiful Women of Wrestling Comments
Lee Bruce from Gold Coast Queensland Australia on July 09, 2017:

sabrebIade (author) from Pennsylvania on February 03, 2017:
Sorry Connor we all make mistakes from time to time.
I know thats not allowed on the internet but it still does happen.
I thought Irish and typed Scottish.
Conor on January 29, 2017:
"Wonderful Scottish accent" *facepalm*. Christ almighty! You couldn't have just Googled her to find out where she's actually from?
De youngstar on October 19, 2016:
Well I don't know who to choose weather Nikki Bella or Eve Torres. But I'll say that Nikki Bella is the most beautiful than following her is Eve Torres
I don;t know what to say on May 17, 2016:
Alot of fine ladies I don't know alot of them but still like to look it would be hard to pick a favorite. Keep up the good work ladies I watch as often as I can I have been a fan for the last 51 years. I am gonna lean a little towards AJ she is just so cute and petite.
sandeep on July 23, 2013:
kaithln is awesome
Ghost32 on February 18, 2013:
Hm. I'm clearly behind the times, since none of these gals either look or sound familiar. Nor do I consider any one of them the slightest bit attractive. (Your avatar, on the other hand...oh yeah.)
However, I can see one really sensible construct in several of the photos. Those with the largest breast implants may have a real edge in competition. If they're slammed face down, they most likely bounce back up like one of those clown punching bags that come right back at you.
Voted Up and Interesting. Just not Beautiful. :)
Rojan on April 08, 2012:

adorababy from Syracuse, NY on June 20, 2010:
This is what you call "beauty and brawn" in the literal sense. I can't imagine what these women had to go through, with all the training and stuff just to prepare for their fights.
captainchris on May 26, 2010:
Another great list!
Mortgagestar1 from Weirton,West Virginia on January 07, 2010:
The very fact these women are in the peak of their physical fitness is an attraction. The are athletes and models as well as fantasies. What man/women wouldn't want to be in a scissor headlock with theses beauties?
gramsmith on January 06, 2010:

Great Hub, I don't think I have ever heard of these woman before but now that you informed me, Im very proud to say I know who they are. I love your writing voice and the way you set this hub up. In my opinion my favorite one on this list is Christy Hemme. But great hub once again
mosaicman from Tampa Bay, Fl on December 16, 2009:

100389 from Anderson Sc on December 09, 2009:
I agree with you about the the most beautiful wrestlers.I talk about wrestle in one of my hubs and i forgot about the females.You take it easy.Take a look at my hubs.
donnie noble on December 02, 2009:
If you had to rank them, I'd have to say that Maryse should be no.1. Not only is she one of the sexiest women in pro wrestling but she has excellent in-ring skills, and ya amazing on the mic too with that sexy Canadian-French accent.
Michael Collins on November 10, 2009:
There is something very primal and appealing, about viewing two shapely; attractive, martially-skilled women going at each other.
