Can You Name These Attitude Era WWE Divas?
Women’s wrestling is currently experiencing something of a renaissance. While the WWE product, when it comes to their female wrestlers, is far from perfect, there has certainly been a concerted effort in the last few years to place more emphasis on the women’s division. There are more talented divas on the roster now than ever before, with the likes of Charlotte Flair, Sasha Banks, Becky Lynch, Bayley, Alexa Bliss and Paige being capable of tearing the house down on any given night when they get in the squared-circle.
The company has also made sure to present divas of varying shapes and sizes, as well as from different ethnicities and backgrounds. These days, the women’s divisions on Raw and Smackdown are actually focal points of the shows, and not just in a way that lets men ogle the sexy ladies in the ring. No, sir. These women wrestle just as well as the men, and they go out there to prove that at all times.
This wasn’t always the case, however. Back in the Attitude Era (the biggest boom period in pro-wrestling history), it could be argued that the Divas division was never bigger in terms of popularity. Several of the women from back then were household names, and are still beloved by fans today. But, just as many of them were used mainly for their sex appeal, and the truly talented ladies of this era had to fight tooth and nail to be able to show what they were capable of in the ring.
This quiz will test your knowledge of the ladies from this period. We’ve got a good mix of top notch in-ring workers, beauties who functioned mostly as valets, and the occasional crossover megastar thrown in there as well. Enjoy!
