The field of wrestling is predicated on show, pomp, and circumstance, with its over-the-top personalities and larger-than-life brawls. And that’s precisely what the supporters want. But, every now and again, the show goes a bit too far. Global Wrestling Entertainment has been accused of producing racist, sexist, degrading, or otherwise inappropriate stuff in the past, and looking back over the company’s history, those claims aren’t entirely unwarranted – it’s been a… colorful & eventful run, to say the very least.
A little controversy may be a fantastic way to gain attention for a product and capture headlines, but as these instances indicate, there have been plenty of times when it has gone too far. The following are some of the most contentious things the WWE would have ever done or been a part of.
Rosa Mendes joined the cast of Total Divas in the third season, and while she has had her share of controversy, it was back in season five, when Rosa was holding a baby shower, that Paige was forced to expose a secret she had kept hidden for years.
Paige had been distant with Rosa whenever it came to preparing and attending her baby shower, but she did come there late and remained aloof. This led to her admitting that she had been pregnant at the age of 18 and had lost the baby.
Paige said that she was concerned if she would be able to bear kids in the future owing to medical issues surrounding her pregnancy. And she was clearly moved by seeing one of her dearest friends start a family of her own.
Previously revealing that she had been married before in season two, Nikki Bella spent the first half of the season whining about how she wanted John Cena to offer her to marry her.
It wasn’t that Nikki had been married previously, but it was that she had been married for 3 years and also that her family had been unaware of it.
Nikki, Brie, JJ, and their mother Cathy are known to be close, so how could Nikki elope and marry her high school boyfriend without telling anybody in her family. The marriage was obviously dissolved after three years since the pair realized that were just too young for this commitment, but a 3 secret marriage was likely one of the most stunning things The Bellas revealed to the WWE Universe during part of the presentation.
In 2014, Paige and Rosa Mendes appeared in an episode of Total Divas for Season three. The two ladies were previously known to be close friends, but it appears that their bond was considerably stronger.
Rosa admitted in one episode that she was drawn to Paige and that she saw her as more than just a friend.
Rosa decided to take a chance and kiss Paige later in the same episode, despite the fact that Paige already was known to be bisexual. Paige, on the other hand, was clearly not of the same mind as the retiring WWE star. Luckily, the duo were able to remain friends and Rosa has since moved on to a new relationship and became a mother for the first time back in 2016 when she gave birth to her daughter Jordan. So it seems to have turned out quite well for Rosa despite the rejection!
WWE isn’t only about strong men competing for titles or someone yelling obscenities through a microphone. In this sector, attractive ladies play an important role. Others are commentators, some are secretaries, some are in charge of operating the event, while the majority of the fight is within the squared ring.
For a long period of time, WWE’s diva’s department was very important, and the organization even established a championship for this group of female wrestlers. We’ve seen a lot of champions throughout the years, some of them are really attractive, while others are very deserving of being champions.
But if you can combine the aforementioned two characteristics in one woman, that’s fantastic. Let’s take a look at the top 5 WWE women’s/divas champions that are both dominating and stunning in this article.
Eve Torres, a previous WWE Divas Queen, and a popular TV and film actress has made a name for herself. She was a three-time Divas champion who held the championship for a total of 260 days. Eve’s connection with Zack Rider and John Cena was incredible, and the crowd adored her for it.
We’d go so far as to say she’s been the most attractive woman in WWE since the company’s existence. Eve graduated from the Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Academy with a blue belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. She also did some kickboxing. She is a spokesman and lead teacher for the Gracie Women Empowered Self-Defense program, in addition to her wrestling abilities.
Trish Stratus, to the best of my understanding, is WWE’s Wonder Woman. With a cumulative reign of 828 days, the seven-time Women’s champion has accomplished a lot in the WWE. Pro Wrestling magazine named her the ‘Woman of the Decade (2000-2009)’.
Trish has elevated women’s wrestling to new heights as one of the most gorgeous female stars of all time and a respected figure in the diva’s division. Trish is hotter than quark-gluon soup, as seen by her backstage stints with WWE superstars like Rock, Jericho, and Christian.
Nikki Bella is one of WWE’s most gorgeous ladies and the longest-reigning Divas Champion. She maintained the Divas title for a record-breaking 301 days, demonstrating her dominance in the diva’s section. It’s worth noting that Nikki was named one of the top 50 female singles wrestlers in the PWI Female 50 in 2015.
In 2013 and 2015, she was named ‘Diva of the Year’ twice. This two-time divas winner has a sizable social media following, and many people keep their eyes peeled for Nikki’s Instagram photographs.
In or out of the ring, AJ was crazy and romantic. She won the WWE Divas championship three times and held it for 406 days, the greatest total reign in WWE history. The insane one was a fantastic kisser, winning the ‘Best Kiss of the Year’ award in 2012.
In 2012, 2013, and 2014, she was named ‘Woman of the Year by Pro Wrestling Illustrated for three years in a row. She has also won the ‘Diva of the Year’ title twice in 2012 and 2014, earning the admiration of her followers. She will remain one of WWE’s top diva’s champions and most gorgeous divas.
Lita comes to mind when I think of a peculiar combination of beauty and athletic talent. In all of these ways, this WWE diva is incredible. Lita is widely regarded as the finest high-flying diva of all time, and she has a sizable fandom in the WWE.
She has won the WWE Women’s Championship four times and has held the belt for a total of 160 days. She not only wowed the crowd with her battles, but she also wowed them with her charisma and attractiveness. In 2001, she was named ‘Woman of the Year by Pro Wrestling Illustrated, and in 2014, WWE put her into the ‘Hall of Fame’ class.
Women are demonstrating that the WWE is not only a male-dominated sport. Some of the female wrestlers, known as WWE Divas, are attracting large crowds and earning considerable money in the profession. We looked at the current net worth of some of the most well-known female wrestlers and were astounded by how much some of them had earned over the course of their careers. Although some of them may have received great incomes, not all of them made prudent investments or maintained track of their riches. And if you think Sable made the list, you’re wrong; she’s only worth $1.5 million.
Debra McMichael is the wealthiest diva in the history of the WWE. She had a successful stint in the WCW and established a reputation for herself during the WWE’s “Attitude” Era. She used to be Jeff Jarrett’s manager. She would stand atop the right apron when he was in the ring, and spectators would watch for her famous opening of the blouse button manoeuvre. She did it to distract Jarrett’s opponents and, as you may know, to boost her WWE brand. Jarrett’s connection with her was a tinderbox. Jeff may be a touch obnoxious at times, but she stuck with him. She might be a scumbag at times, but her admirers adore her.
Debra was the first woman to win the WWE Women’s Championship and the PWI Woman of the Year award in 1999. From 1998 until 2002, she worked for WWE, where she earned her stripes. Jarrett departed for WCW, and McMichael took a break of her own. After the two married in real life, we saw her resurface at Stone Cold Steve Austin’s side. Her followers remember her even though she has been gone for a long time.
Torrie Wilson is the 4rth most wealthy WWE Diva in history. She was friends with Stacy Keibler, and the two led the charge in 2001 when they attempted to take over the ring. Wilson did a three sixty during the Invasion angle, and fans fell in love with her as a favourite. Tajiri, her then-boyfriend, was the reason she finally left the WCW. Before Cena was Cena, she came across as the feminine equivalent of John Cena. Her profile was high, and she was a lady that the WWE promoted hard. Wilson sided with Candice Michelle & Victoria as well, although the crowd’s anguish was not as high as predicted.
Wilson departed the WWE in 2008 after her contract was terminated. From 2001 through 2008, she was a member of the organisation. She got the WWE’s golden Thong Award in 2002, just before she left.
Nakano had two fantastic runs in the WWE, but they were both cut short. She joined WWE in 1986 and quickly established a terrifying reputation. During her second stint, she had an all-out war with Alundra Blayze, which was one of the most popular feuds of the 1990s. SumerSlam 94 was harsh, and the hard-hitting divas put on some great match-ups that created history in terms of enthusiasm that has yet to be seen in the ring or out to this day. Hull flung Blayze about the ring like a Raggedy Ann doll.
She didn’t win the tournament outright, but she eventually won the belt and held it for more than 5 months until Blayze recaptured it. She fell into some significant problems during her second stint with WWF. She was sacked from the firm after being arrested for cocaine possession. Bull Nakano was a member of the WWE from 1986 to 1994 and again from 1994 to 1995. She was the only woman to win the WWF Women’s Championship once.
When it comes to ratings, these WWE divas are the best of the best.
Observing whether wrestlers’ ratings grow or decline from game to game provides a fascinating glimpse into how they’ve progressed up or down the card over the last year. There are 2 years of history to cover, which has resulted in a spectacular ascent for certain wrestlers.
With women wrestlers in WWE gaining more attention than ever before, former and present talents have taken prominent roles on the roster, ranking incredibly high. Some of these divas are legends with a larger-than-life history, while others are current stars at the pinnacle of their profession.
None has been able to halt Becky Lynch’s dominance over WWE since she burst onto the scene in 2018. She defended her Raw & Smackdown Women’s Championship for nearly a year after capturing it in the main event of WrestleMania 35, appearing on the cover of WWE 2K20 during that time. After getting pregnant, she finally lost the title in 2020.
She wouldn’t be back until summer 2021, but she snatched the attention right away. At Summerslam, she stunned the world by reclaiming the Smackdown Women’s Championship from Bianca Belair. She has demolished all rivals for her crown to far, demonstrating she didn’t skip a beat while she was gone and still deserves her place at the top.
Charlotte has managed to keep her spot at the top of the WWE Women’s tournament despite missing a significant amount of time over the previous two years. She began 2020 by having won the Royal Rumble and capturing the NXT Women’s Championship from Rhea Ripley. She lost the championship in the summer and was unable to compete for the remainder of the year due to a need for surgery.
When she returned in December 2020, she and Asuka won the Women’s Tag Team Championships. She missed WrestleMania that year, but in the summer of 2021, she won the Raw Women’s Championship twice.
In 2020, Asuka, the other woman who carried WWE throughout the epidemic, tore a way through almost everyone on Raw. She earned Money in the Bank in 2020 after having lost in the Elimination Chamber to Shayna Baszler, and she used it to win the Raw Championship title after Becky Lynch revealed her pregnancy.
She reigned Raw like a queen with the Raw Championship title, holding it until WrestleMania 37, when she was defeated by Rhea Ripley. She was coming off a championship loss when, like Bayley, she suffered an injury that kept her out for the remainder of the year and has yet to return.
Despite missing the majority of 2021 due to a broken ACL, Bayley is widely regarded as the MVP of the epidemic period in WWE. While the shows were under-attended and of poor quality, Bayley was putting on a show every week as the Smackdown Women’s Champion.
Her mean-girl heel attitude was a new side of her that fans had never seen before, and she jumped at the chance. She was a must-see fighter every week, and she even managed to lose her crown to Sasha Banks in a dramatic manner. She has yet to come back from injury, but when she does, she will undoubtedly be thrust back into the limelight.
Sasha Banks, one of the mythical Four Horsewomen, had a terrific 2020 but went off the waggon in 2021. In the year 2020, she debuted as a heel with Bayley. She won the Raw Women’s Championship for a short time before losing it to Asuka, and then the unthinkable happened.
Fans eventually got to see the rivalry between Bayley and Banks that they had been awaiting for since their first iconic confrontation in NXT 2015 when Bayley turned on Sasha at the beginning of the Autumn in 2020. Their match was a huge success, with Sasha winning the Smackdown Women’s Championship and launching what would be her most successful championship reign to date.
She was sidelined by injury more than time in 2021 after losing the title to Bianca Belair at WrestleMania 37, but is building back up in the class as of 2022.
WWE in 2022 continues to shine, as the year’s second PPV, The Royal Rumble, was a fantastic treat for all fans. Ronda Rousey reappeared to WWE after a lengthy break to win the Women’s Royal Rumble event, while Brock Lesnar surprised everyone by winning the men’s Royal Rumble fight after losing his championship in one of the most unexpected ways earlier in the night.
Ronda Rousey, who was ranked 28th in the 2022 Royal Rumble, was one among the numerous unexpected returns. ‘The World’s Most Dangerous Women’ The Women’s Royal Rumble in 2022 was won by Ronda Rousey.
‘Rowdy’ reappeared after a three-year absence and made a forceful statement clearing the ring. She won the match after eliminating four ladies and lasting 15 minutes.
Sasha Banks and Melina entered the ring first in the Women’s Royal Rumble. After being ousted by Queen Zelina, she couldn’t endure long. Lita, Michelle McCool, and Impact Knockouts champion Mickie James all put in strong performances in the bout. They couldn’t make it to the finish of the contest, however.
Bianca Belair, Shayna Baszler, Charlotte Flair, and Ronda Rousey were the last four women in the ring. Bianca Belair, who started at number eight, stood out in the final four, lasting more over 40 minutes.
Shayna Baszler, who competed at the age of 30, was unable to take advantage of her late entry. Charlotte Flair, who was ranked 17th when she arrived, eliminated six women, such as Shayna Baszler and Bianca Belair.
Ronda Rousey was ranked No. 28 before she entered, and she was joined by Charlotte Flair as the last two superstars. ‘The Queen’ was hoisted and hurled over the top rope as she rushed ‘Rowdy.’ As a result, Charlotte currently holds the record for the most Women’s Royal Rumble runner-up finishes.
Despite the fact that WWE’s women’s division is stacked with talent, including Charlotte Flair, Sasha Banks, Becky Lynch, Bianca Belair, and Bayley, Ronda Rousey’s star power was still required. The “Rowdy” one is one of the most well-known ladies in the world, thus her presence clearly promotes the organisation.
Rousey was only in WWE for a year, but in that time she had made an incomparable impression, adjusting remarkably quickly to the wrestling profession and winning the respect of the fans, who had been missing her and were ecstatic with her triumph.
Rousey is a true fighter who can beat up on any woman on the WWE roster right now. As a result, it’s no surprise that she won the Women’s Royal Rumble in 2022. Ronda has only had 31 televised battles in her WWE career, but she has already done things that the huge majority of women can only dream of.
Becky Lynch beat Ronda Rousey and Charlotte Flair to win the Raw and SmackDown Women’s Championships at WrestleMania 35. As a result, Ronda is expected to pick Becky Lynch to reclaim her Raw Women’s Championship from Becky Lynch.
It’s looking much more probable now that ‘Rowdy’ will appear on the upcoming edition of Raw.
