For a long time, wrestling was a man’s sport – the testosterone, the rippling muscles, the aggression, the screaming and loud personalities. From ancient Greece to the 20th century, it was a man’s world, and women were merely eye candy in the form of valets or ring girls. However, about halfway through the 20th century, women started to step up and demand their own spot in the ring. They slipped on their own costumes, slipped under the ropes, and showed that women can be just as strong as men.
Female wrestlers are a lot more diverse when it comes to their physique than male wrestlers, in general. While genetics play a bit of a role, and some male wrestlers can naturally bulk up a bit more than others, they generally all go for the overall jacked look. However, female wrestlers range everywhere from short and curvy body types to tall and lean. The only common factor between female wrestlers is that they’re all in amazing shape – they have to be to do the kind of things they do in the ring.
The female wrestlers on this list all take their physique seriously. While some are retired and some are rookies coming into their own, they all spend or have spent thousands of hours in the gym building muscle, sculpting their bodies, maintaining their bodies and just generally training incredibly hard. What they’ve accomplished is incredible, and can serve as a great motivation to get in the gym and get fit. Whether you’re naturally willowy or stocky, bottom heavy or top heavy, there’s likely a female wrestler out there whose physique you can strive for.

Trish Stratus is a retired professional wrestler, and one of the greatest Divas of all time, plain and simple. She’s won countless titles, including “Dive of the Decade” in 2003. As many of the great Divas did, Stratus got her start on the sidelines as a manager for other wrestlers, but she was soon stepping into the ring herself. Stratus’ physique is basically what countless women strive for – muscular in all the right places, curvy, and just drop dead gorgeous. It’s the kind of body that you know she spent hours and hours sculpting, and it proves that hard work and dedication pays off.
