Professional wrestling is obviously one of the more violent forms of entertainment in the world today. At its most basic essence, wrestling is about two people physically fighting to determine who is the stronger, better performer of the two. When wrestlers start adding tables and ladders and chairs, oh my, does it start getting exponentially more violent.
The vast majority of the female wrestlers, or Divas, ever to work for WWE have been extremely beautiful. Though many have been tough competitors in their own right, beautiful women aren’t typically known for being physically violent killing machines. WWE divas routinely prove that they can wrestle just as well as the men, but given their looks, it can be hard to imagine some of them swinging lead pipes, going for broke and trying to make their opponents bleed. The female athletes on this list show that’s just as crazy as telling them they can’t wrestle, beating the hell out of men and women alike for their art, weapons and all.

1 Beulah McGillicutty vs. Bill Alfonso - ECW, As Good As It Gets 1997
Beulah McGillicutty is one of the most beautiful divas in professional wrestling history, but there’s a reason ECW fans remember her as the true queen of hardcore. While earlier in this list we discussed her tag team efforts, it was her ECW solo debut against referee Bill Alfonso which goes down in history as the bloodiest match ever to involve a diva—and Fonzie barely even touches Beulah.
McGillicutty starts the match by hitting Alfonso with a baking sheet, immediately causing the wayward referee to bleed. She later lands Fonzie with a sliding dropkick to the face, assisted by a steel chair. According to ECW Owner Paul Heyman, Alfonso would lose one-third of the blood in his body during the match. That may be an exaggeration, but Alfonso bleeds so heavily it's clear he really can’t see out of both eyes, and it's hard to tell how much of it is acting and how much is real, but he looks generally woozy even attempting to stand. Beulah doesn’t get busted open, but ends up covered in Alfonso’s blood, too, just by way of continuing to hit the guy. The crowd went wild for McGillicutty, chanting, “She’s hardcore! She’s hardcore!” for the real life Mrs. Tommy Dreamer, until she finally took away the win after a Beulahcanrana.
