For the longest time, the women of WWE have been judged primarily on their looks. The WWE has no doubt employed some of the most beautiful women in the world during its existence. Without question, sex sells in any fashion and the WWE has done their best to exploit that fact. For many years, the WWE did their best to turn away from the wrestling aspect of women, opting for unnecessary contests to show off their bodies to attract the male audience. With a lack of in-ring ability that often led to quick and boring matches, it was understandable not to take women's wrestling seriously from a fan's perspective. The evidence showed in the ratings as fans often changed the channel during women's matches or would elect to take a break.
However, with the development of NXT and growing popularity of the women's division, women's wrestling is reaching a level that we've never seen before. Cleverly titled, NXT held the first ever pay-per-view main event between two women when Sasha Banks faced off against Bayley at NXT Takeover: Respect in an Iron Man (Woman) Match. The women of the WWE, and particularly NXT, have earned the respect from the WWE Universe.
Some of the women elect to keep on lesser roles outside of the ring, whether as a manager, commentator, or a ring announcer. One thing that has not changed and much to the delight of many is that they're still hot. The WWE has not stopped from employing beautiful women. With more time awarded to the WWE Divas and much improved in-ring abilities, the women of the WWE/NXT are as hot as ever. In this segment, we countdown today's hottest females in WWE/NXT.
14 Alexa Bliss
12 Stephanie McMahon
11 Lilian Garcia
10 Brie Bella
9 Alicia Fox
6 Nikki Bella
4 Becky Lynch
2 Eva Marie
1 Sasha Banks
Sasha Banks is a primary reason for the success that the women's division is having. Banks is a phenomenal wrestler and a beautiful young woman. She and Bayley put on epic performances and instant classics in their battles for the NXT Women's Championship. "The Boss" will only go higher. Sasha's currently out of action with an injury but she's expected back in time for a return to the big dance. A potential match against Becky Lynch at WrestleMania could become the greatest match in women's history. Banks has everything you want in a WWE Diva and, in my opinion, will be mentioned with the likes of names like Lita and Trish Stratus when all is said and done.
