With an ongoing shift in philosophy when it comes to the role of the female performer, the WWE currently showcases more capable in-ring performers than ever before. The state of the Divas division has reached unprecedented heights, with matches as thrilling as ever. WWE developmental territory went as far as headlining a pay-per-view event, NXT Takeover: London back in November with an ironman match between Bayley and Sasha Banks, with the two stars delivering a performance for the ages. Gone are the days where Divas served merely as sex symbols cast in bra and panties matches. The women have taken on, and rightfully so, a broader, more prominent role.
Despite all their success, one constant has remained for the most part: sex appeal, and a lot of it. While no longer the sole pre-requisite for new talent, it can only help the product when the athletes are equally as beautiful in their craft. Vince McMahon has recruited some of sports entertainment’s most desired women throughout the years. Many have used their fame in the ring to spark side ventures, including baring all in exclusive photoshoots. Others have gone on into film and television. Others have disappeared. In the late 90s Sable broke ground when she posed nude for Playboy Magazine, paving the way for others, while most sought alternate routes. The object of this narrative is to discuss the Divas, past and present, we absolutely wish would have also posed nude, for no other reason than gluttonously satisfying our fantasies.
12 Dana Brooke
11 Alexa Bliss
9 AJ Lee
8 Alicia Fox
7 Summer Rae
6 Sasha Banks
3 Bella Twins
1 Trish Stratus
Arguably one of the most influential and iconic Divas of all time. Trish Stratus was amongst the first to perfectly mesh sex appeal and athleticism. With an accomplished background as a fitness model, gracing the covers of several of the most reputable print publications in the industry the Canadian arrived to the WWE with an already recognizable name. She helped carry the women through the attitude era, and expand fan bases with her unrivaled starlet power. She was the embodiment of aesthetic perfection, though she cemented her legacy in the WWE as much in the ring as she did in string bikinis for photoshoots. While we have seen her in see through mesh, wet t-shirts, and sporting dental floss as underwear, Stratus has never fully disrobed for the camera.
