Maxim have released their ‘Hot 100’ 2017 list; a list dedicated to the hottest female celebrities of the year.

Each year high profile musicians, actors, athletes and models enter the list, comprising of 100 different women. This year’s list is topped by model Hailey Baldwin.

The list also features the likes of Chrissy TeiganCara Delevigne and Emily Sears.

Amongst the list of star-studded women, WWE’s very own blonde bombshell Summer Rae (aka Danielle Moinet) made the list! Maxim had this to say about the WWE Superstar:

The blonde WWE bombshell is as tough as she is sexy, which is just how she likes it. As she explains, “Hot has no boundaries. It no longer has to fit in a box. Hot is confidence, it’s strength, it’s athletic, it’s smart, it’s curvy or slim, and nothing is hotter than a woman loving herself.”

The former first lady of NXT isn’t the first women’s wrestler to make the list. ‘Total Divas’ alum Eva Marie made the list in 2014, whilst former WWE stars Kelly Kelly and Layla did so in 2012.

Summer posed for Maxim back in September 2016, where she took our breath away with a flawless photoshoot.

Rae’s latest wrestling match was during the SummerSlam Heatwave Tour on August 14th, 2016. Here she teamed with Natalya in a losing effort against Becky Lynch and Naomi.

Her latest televised wrestling appearance was on Superstars on July 22nd, 2016. Fortunately Rae managed to overcome Alicia Fox in their single bout.

Summer has been spotted training alongside Emma in recent months, and was also allegedly cleared to wrestle, despite not appearing on WWE television since 2016.

Regardless of her wrestling appearances, Summer has taken things under her own hands as she’s appeared on multiple different magazine covers and managed to get onto this exclusive list!

But, we still miss seeing this talent on our screens every week. We miss you, Summer!

Do you think that Summer earned her spot on the list? Who do you think should be on the list? Let us know your views in the comments below!


    Hell yeah!!!!

    The fact Summer Rae is getting all this media press attention despite not been seen in WWE in almost a year https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/d7c50b3990048f5f5df6f6d0a1b807a58cd5af21eadc0a2eafd55fffbbe94374.jpg

      She almost doesn’t need them anymore.

  • GameChanger #HBIC#GoldenGodess

    Congrats Queen

    • LaurenYorkStan

      I know you saw my messages

      • KellyKellyisbeast


  • Between the countless magazine covers she’s been having, and now this, I think everyone underestimated her popularity. Hopefully WWE opens their eyes and gives her a big push when she returns.

    • Joseph

      As a wrestler or as a valet????

      • KellyKellyisbeast

        I think mainley as a valet

        • TJ

          Fuck no, she’s been a valet for half her career despite being a WRESTLER, she needs to make it out on her own without having a man by her side bringing her down, she has the wrestling ability, mic skills and looks to be one of the top dogs in the women’s division all she needs is to be given a chance inside the ring

          • Mr.Rae

            Damn true!!

      • TJ


        • Joseph

          Yea she isn’t going to be push the moon.

          • TJ

            obviously but she needs to be pushed as in ring competitor or else she’ll never move up from her current status in WWE

          • Joseph

            How about we let her get used to being back in the ring first.

          • TJ


          • Joseph

            I said let her get her rhythm back in the ring first.

          • TJ

            She needs to be given a proper storyline involving wrestling not the usual love triangle ones they give her, or the 3 minute jobber matches, all she needs right now is a storyline to prove her worth imo bc this is a fact they have never given Summer a proper singles storyline on the main roster other than her vs Layla

          • She’s better than Carmella though..

      • Malcolm James

        A Valet that what she good at

      • Wrestler

    • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

      Being on this list doesn’t make you extremely popular. It’s still good but nobody is paying that close of attention to the Maxim top 100.

      • LaurenYorkStan

        You sure? Because it’s extremely popular in the US maybe not in your country tho

        • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

          I’m in the US. It was probably more popular 10 years ago.

        • He lives in the ugly ass boondocks. He’s a redneck. What do you expect of him?

        • John Finnie

      • It is the most respectable list of this kind in the world. The sole fact that the Bellas have never made this list but she has puts things into perspective.

        • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

          This list only means that you are their idea of beautiful. It’s really not that respectable, more so something made just for looks. It doesn’t send a good message for women.

          • It’s the most popular list of the kind out there, that’s the point. You interpret it how you want.

          • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

            But people don’t really care about it… the list itself seems like is serves little meaning. What happens when you place number one? Does someone just walk up to you and say; “okay you’re the hottest! good job. Here’s a gold star!”?

          • I don’t even live in America and I’m aware of its popularity. Catch up.

          • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

            You catch up. Nobody pays attention to it anymore.

          • Clearly they do otherwise it would be discontinued.

          • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

            Not necessarily

    • Wrestling.fan.from.France

      I don’t see her being as popular as others tbh. Being in different covers doesn’t mean you are extremely popular but that you have a certain appeal and you have a look that fit exactly what they look for. Let’s be real, she could stop WWE and get into the modeling world and find some good success.

      Now, who do you really think is waiting for her to come back? At this, I don’t think she’s viewed as a need for most of fans. She has a fanbase like anyone, but her fanbase isn’t as big as what you may think.

      • Stop with the know it all attitude when you are a fan of plain Jane.

        • Wrestling.fan.from.France


      • The Bellas have never made it to the Maxim Hot 100 and they’re 5x more popular than her. And neither have other women had 40 covers in a year time frame, especially when they’re injured, and basically forgotten. Summer has managed to do it all. And you can’t deny any of that. Once WWE capitalizes on her, there’ll be no stopping for Summer.

        • Wrestling.fan.from.France

          But this doesn’t speak much volume on her popularity in itself. It proves that she has some kind of appeal and that she’s simply gorgeous, I’ll give her that but nothing else. Her fanbase, loyal I might add, isn’t that big.

          Maxim is nice. It can open you some doors in the modeling industry but unless you have a look that truly stands out or that you have something WWE like in you, it’s nothing. Layla was on Maxim, did WWE made a big deal about it? Proof that it ain’t much of a big deal to WWE AND to WWE fans as well who could care a less about it.
          The Bellas never made it into that list, but at the end of the day, they managed to succeed. It’s just a list.

          • She’s not on Total Divas, not active at the moment, WWE doesnt even promote her and she still managed to do everything – magazine covers, attending big premieres, being in the same place as other big stars. She did it all on her own, no promotion.

            You can’t compare something now to something years ago where they didn’t even have Divas on Raw weekly. But the fact is, she’s making moves, contrary to just being irrelevant while she’s injured.

          • Wrestling.fan.from.France

            Of course, I am not saying that her trying to keep her name relevant is a bad thing. If can expend her brand, more power to her because like you said, WWE don’t view her as a big priority and have their eyes on others at this point and long-term wise from what it seems like. They didn’t even promote that “accomplishment”.

            Just saying that Maxim is just Maxim and all these magazine she’s covered doesn’t mean she’s that popular.

          • But seeing how she did it all on her own, it will be a question whether they recognize that and use that to their advantage.

          • YonceLuvsDivas

            So having multiple trending tweets going around asking WWE to give you a chance or for your where about doesn’t make you popular?

          • Wrestling.fan.from.France

            She’s not THAT popular. Like I said, she has a nice and loyal fanbase but it’s not THAT big and neither that extended compared to others. I guess she’s the most popular out of the least ones…

        • hitesh khanna

          40 magazine covers in a year??? are u exaggerating or is this true?? if so where can I see those 40 covers??

          • ask the TJ person below, she’s from my twitter group chat and is her biggest fan, I’m sure she can give you all the links

  • BillyGP

    I Don’t think she that hot but that my opinion. Eva should of been listed.

    • LaurenYorkStan

      Well glad you’re not doing it

  • TJ

    When will your faves basically force WWE to push her, she really put her career into her own hands and instead if moping around about her injury she utilised every second to really make a name for herself out there with literally no help from WWE, they didn’t even promote a single magazine Summer was a part of. She proved that she has the presence and popularity for WWE to make her a top star now hopefully they take notice and use her the way they should

    • Joseph

      Well i don’t see that happening to be honest. She’s gonna be most likely gonna be in that utility player role.

    • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

      I like how you said “literal legend” lmao

  • StraightFire

    Hailey Baldwin at #1? Tragic list.

  • King K.

    Where is this bitch? Is she cleared? I miss her, SD needs her asap

    • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

      She’s on Raw.

      • King K.

        Yes I know, but Raw is full and I think SD could use her better

        • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

          True now that I think about it.

  • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

    when isn’t summer slaying? she needs to return PRONTO. Hopefully she goes to Raw and snatches Bayley and Sasha BALD!!

  • Mr.Rae

    Although she does not appear in wwe for nearly a year,she’s still so much popular,in this year she’s been on 10 magazine covers,what a legend.
    WWE should give her a big push once she return.
    We’re all tired of Sasha,Bayley and especially of that mini troll,you all know who i’m talking about..

  • vdcvt

    If WWE were smart they would see what a bombshell they have in Summer and use her. WWE need to work her in a story, and have that bigger than life persona similar to that whole Emmalina schtick but it’d definitely work for Summer

  • conan_kun

    Want to see them return together

  • hitesh khanna

    Don’t forget stacy who has been on the maxim top100 the most then any other female wrestler!!

  • hitesh khanna

    Also just surprised that none of the bella twins esp nikki isnt in it knowing how popular they are, I guess there just really popular to the younger crowd more then the older ones?

    • QueenSableBomb

      I think the twins resonate more with pre-teens, teenagers, and probably the young adults. They’re the ones that consume social media and reality TV, which is where the twins have carved a niche for themselves

  • SilentOx

    I bet Alexa Bliss makes the list next year!

    • Wrestling.fan.from.France


    • Bow Down To The Queen

      She should be on now TBH

  • That’s good for her. She has went out, and carved her own niche. She has a loyal fanbase with a good amount of people. She can somewhat wrestle. At least better than the likes of Carmella and Alexa you guys wet yourselves over. If she stops phoning it in and performs like she did in NXT or against Sasha, then she can be a force to be reckoned with once she’s back.

  • congrats to summer for making the list now lets get her back on wwe

  • Ollie Roche

    I’m pretty shocked tbh. Normally Maxim only add those who are relevent and tbh Summer has been missing for a while. I thought Alexa Bliss would be in.

  • Dreignz

    Legends only

  • Don ?

    Congratulations Summer!

  • Bow Down To The Queen

    Congrats to her she’s very pretty I would have her 5th in WWE tho behind Alexa , Nikki , Lana and Maryse tho

    • Alicia facially beats all of these mediocre girls.

      • Bow Down To The Queen

        It’s all opinion

  • Now that she make an appearance on this important list, it’s time for WWE to put the spotlight on her.

  • QueenSableBomb

    Hailey Baldwin? Number one? K Maxim..

  • YonceLuvsDivas

    Ummmmm…. I do recall Stacy Keibler not only being a former WWE Diva to appeared on the list but being the first one ever from WWE to make it. Is it me or do the writers really slack in the know your history department now of days?

    • iOwnThatSonOfABitch

      I truly believe that they legitimately think we forget

      • YonceLuvsDivas

        But that’s Stacy though? How could we forget her?

  • One of the few women who hasn’t been given as kuch in WWE but has been able to garner success outside of WWE during her injury. I really hope she does return and the machines give her a good push. Raw/SD either way I know she’ll shine!

  • Aye Mate


    Not that I’m well versed in heterosexual fancy, or what factors into the intricate processes of compiling a prioritised list of female beauty, but in my own humble opinion one of the most beautiful women in WWE is also an underrated one: she with the mesmeric Irish eyes, Becky Lynch.

    Why not Bayley or Asuka!!? Nia Jax!!? Sasha Banks!? Charlotte!!? Dana Brooke!? Alicia Fox!? Alexa Bliss!? Naomi!? Becky!? Paige!??

    • LaurenYorkStan

      ??????? you’re joking right?

  • Miguel Orona Rodríguez

    Summer Rae is a gem of talent that WWE barely uses. I remember when she turned that Rusev, Lana & Ziggler storyline into gold.
