Welcome to the Perfect 10 of 2008, the countdown that highlights Diva Dirt‘s ten top Divas and Knockouts of ’08! Which Divas/Knockouts have made the biggest impact? From champions to talented wrestlers to big personalities, the Perfect 10 has them all!
Ooh oui, indeed! French-Canadian bombshell, Maryse came out of no where and stole all of our hearts in 2008. Despite being part of the SmackDown roster for two years, Maryse was hardly ever seen on television until April when she took part in SmackDown’s “Top Diva” competition.
In May, we saw Maryse compete in her first wrestling match on WWE television against Cherry and the rest as they say, is history. Maryse’s cocky attitude and surprising lack of wrestling ability garnered her a fast ride to the top of the Divas division. By the second half of 2008, she was the top heel Diva on SmackDown and feuded with Michelle McCool over the Divas Championship putting on a thrilling trilogy of matches.
Maryse has to be considered the runaway success story of 2008 and what’s more, she wasn’t even on the radar when 2008 started. In her rookie year, Maryse proved to be all around great Diva: sultry looks, good in-ring skills, great persona and gorgeous photoshoots. And now she can add another accolade to the list: the Divas Champion.
