  • So happy Nikki did great and why are SI and M&F always ignoring Naomi when it comes to best bodies? I mean come on…

      Thought I saw fittest body?
      Charlotte is definitely fitter than Naomi. And 20 is not a good score

      • Charlotte is fitter than Naomi? In what world?

    • Wrestling.fan.from.France

      *Fittest body
      And you could have found a better picture of Naomi highlighting her body tho… lol

      • Duh, best body in Fitness world is the fittest body, and Naomi has it. Charlotte is curvier nowadays, but nowhere near the fitness level.

        • Wrestling.fan.from.France

          Charlotte’s body is still freaking great! Nowhere near? Her body isn’t as lean as it used to be when she started per say but she still is freaking great shape. Now, these kind of list are very much subjectives anyway, you could argue that some should be on there or some not but one thing is for sure, Charlotte’s place in it shouldn’t really be denied. When it comes to Naomi, I would definitely put Charlotte ahead on who is the fittest tbh but that doesn’t mean she couldn’t be able to get at least a spot.

          • It’s not comparable to Naomi’s at all, that’s a visual fact. You can call it what you want, but what we see are two different bodies. Someone who doesn’t even have abs should not be considered for such category. Charlotte is in great shape but Naomi is in a league of her own still.

          • Shan

            Sigh, the dust Naomi gets paid always pisses me off. And honest to goodness, as much as I try to avoid it the only difference I see between the two in these things is the colour of their skin. Yes Charlotte is fit and talented but so the hell is Naomi. If Charlotte is on this list Naomi should be as well. And for that matter probably Dana and Alicia as well. But nah, people continually ignore Naomi and come up with some clearly lying excuse as to why Charlotte is ‘better’ than Naomi. Like honestly, how can you look at these pics and say Charlotte should be on this list and not Naomi??? Show me how Charlotte looks fitter in any way, shape, or form.

          • I’m seriously trying to see what pics are they looking at, because I don’t see it. I used their gym and ring pics as comparisons and Naomi still looks better and in better shape than Charlotte, and Charlotte is not bad at all, but let’s call a spade a spade here.

          • Shan

            Honestly I’m positive I’m pretty objective but I don’t see how Charlotte made it and not Naomi. That girl’s body is a testament to how hard she works. You don’t get abs that cut by not working out hard and eating right.

          • Wrestling.fan.from.France

            Since he was talking to me, let me tell you that I am black myself so skin color is definitely not the point.

            On top of that, let me remind you that these kind of list are very subjective either ways since you could argue that some should be on there and some not for that matter. It’s just a matter of opinion.

          • Shan

            I assume these lists should at least try to be partially credible. Ignoring Naomi in favour of Charlotte shows that this is basically a popularity contest, completely subjective, and not worth much.

          • Wrestling.fan.from.France

            The thing with these lists is that it will always be subjective and will be linked to popularity. In that sense, some will always be forgotten. While it will obviously feature credible names, it’s not to look at deeply tbh.

          • Shan

            I don’t pay attention to them but when something like this happens I roll my eyes so hard I almost knock myself out. This shows they don’t even look at the other women.

          • Wrestling.fan.from.France

            “Someone who doesn’t even have abs should not be considered for such category.” https://media.tenor.com/images/86eb7c00905ba5fa58b0e0bc7c7c7486/tenor.gif
            Have you even seen the list? Did you take a look at Serena Williams’ abs by the way who has an undeniable place on this list? Not you basically saying that Naomi’s abs is what’s solely makes her worthy…

            Yes, it’s two different bodies, two great different bodies. One is much leaner than the other and has less body fat (Charlotte in case if you didn’t get it). Naomi is NOT in a league of her own…. despite having a great body.

          • Do you see this pic? Who would you say looks the fittest? One with less body fat and abs (Finn) or the other two? Give me a break. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/bab16d213ea89cb8eeb7663e21616fc67e1567f5004d0f0075414cdc6080000f.jpg
            The standards should be there but it’s clear they don’t have them and go by popularity, which is why only Cena is in from wrestling.

          • Wrestling.fan.from.France

            Is that even a credible example to prove your “point”?….

            Now, these kind of list will always rely on popularity or your name. Not everyone can be on these but it remains subjective. It’s a matter opinions and different other things too. This doesn’t take away from the fact that all the girls on this list are very much worthy of a spot but that doesn’t mean others couldn’t have.

    • YonceLuvsDivas

      Because she got a beautiful big behind and to some people having a big butt is not being fit.

  • MK126

    “Cris Cyborg proposes to have a match against Ronda Rousey in a WWE ring.” Nope leave it right there with the 4HW vs 4HW feud on the long list of proposed dumbass ideas

  • #FlairfortheGold

    What purpose does Cyborg have in challenging someone to a wrestling match if she herself isn’t a wrestler. I can’t be the only one annoyed by this?

    • Shan

      I believe I read somewhere that she actually said that Rinda no longer has a place in the MMA world. That she used to be interested in fighting her when Ronda was well mentally and physically, but she isn’t anymore. She then said that Ronda has turned to wrestling and maybe she’d fight her in a wrestling ring.

  • Don ?

    I forgot Kaitlyn existed. I hope she’s doing well.

  • Danny?

    Cybory VS Ronda in WWE…..ummmmm how about no bitch you have your own sport BYE FELICIA!!!

  • Shan

    1) I forgot Sasha was married, and 2) Nooooooooooooo, don’t take lucha underground away from this world!!!

  • Kiana Taylor

    I remember being a complete stan for kaitlyn and when i read this article i said “who?” i literally had to google “divas champion kaitlyn” and was like “ohhhhh”

  • Danny?

    As for Kaitlyn training in a ring again, keep it…KEEP ALL OF IT! Not a fan and never was a fan of hers.

  • Jtiera

    Natalya will be mad as hell when this “4HW feud” overshadows her title reign. She better stop being so damn helpful

  • ralfikh

    Yes. If Kaitlyn return they need to use her more wisely. That spear is gold.

  • YonceLuvsDivas

    Could Queen Kaitlyn be making a return? I would so fall out if she do!

    Anyway I guess Sexy Star is starting to feel the impact of her actions.

    Idk what a Cris Cyborg is…. but whoever it is needs not to step in the ring with Rounda Rousey. This is WWE not MMA stay your butt out of the squared circle and stay in that dogs cage.

  • ?K . A . T ?

    – The Sasha stuff was cute af!
    – Yes Bayley! you go woman! Get that Mania main event!
    – Whoever this Cris Cyborg is no darling stay in your lane.
    – I want to cry at the thought of having no more Lucha it is the best professional wrestling promotion going today, everything is so compelling and interesting!
    – Cool beans Nattie cool beans.
    – Queen Nikki! I hope she wins! I can’t vote for her though because I’m not in the same country which sucks major ***** but I’m confident she will do great!
    – Allie is the cutest I want her to win the KO Title soon (after Gail gets her last reign though).
    – Sucked in to Sexy Star that’s what you get when you injure someone for no reason.
    – Yay for Charlotte!
    – Good on Kaitlyn! I didn’t really care for her much when she was there but hey I’m open to a return.
