This is the moment we’ve all been waiting for: 50 Sexiest Divas 2009 is here! All summer long, you have been voting for your favourite Divas in a hopes of getting them featured on the list and now the results are here.
What is it? 50 Sexiest Divas is an alternative to similar lists voted for by readers of FHM, Maxim and Ask Men. Our list however, is dedicated entirely to celebrating the sexiest women in wrestling. The countdown is voted solely by the fans making it even more prestigious to those women featured!
Recently departed veteran, Jacqueline may have been cut by TNA this year but the fans show that they still remember the former two time Women’s Champion. She makes this year’s #50, down three spots from last year.
It’s a twenty spot drop for former WWE Diva and TNA Knockout, Jackie Gayda. Despite having two kids, Gayda showed fans she’s still a bombshell when she appeared at WrestleMania 25.
TNA’s first ever Playboy covergirl, Traci may be getting it all out for the magazine but fans have shown they’re not as interested as they were last year. Traci drops from 33 to 48 this year.
The first new entry on this year’s 50 Sexiest Divas list comes in the form of ECW GM, Tiffany. Could her office chic look have something to do with it?
It hasn’t been a great year for Karen Angle and adding to it, last year’s #23 falls 23 places this year. Lack of exposure after being axed by TNA may have had a helping hand.
Former WWE Diva and ECW original, Dawn Marie takes a bump on this year’s list too — but not as steep as others. She charts at 45 down from last year’s 39.
She may have been away from wrestling for several years, but our readers seem to think Chyna is still sexy. She falls from 34 last year however.
|LACEY VON ERICH|
Young upstart Lacey Von Erich is set to be a big star for Wrestlicious & makes her 50 Sexiest debut also, charting at #43.
Former Tough Enough champion, Nidia is back for a second year and surprisingly moves up three spots on the 50 Sexiest countdown.
One of the most warmly remembered ex-Divas, Molly Holly, returned for a brief stint at WrestleMania this year but that didn’t help, as she doesn’t quite match her spot last year.
Making her 50 Sexiest debut is former Knockouts Champion, Taylor Wilde. Wilde became TNA’s own blonde sensation last year but pushed the envelope compared to other blonde bombshells. Thumbtacks anyone?
Interestingly, only one Bella makes the 50 Sexiest Divas list: Nikki. Yeah, I guess Nikki is the sexier Bella, judging by your votes? Nikki makes her debut at #39.
Despite being released two years ago, Kristal is still looking every bit the Diva, turning heads in the fitness industry — and all this post-baby! No wonder she’s moved up the Sexiest list this year!
Outgoing Raw ring announcer, Lilian Garcia has already fallen 17 spots down from last year and she’s not even gone yet. We’ll miss that set of lungs…
One of the rookie Divas on the TNA roster, Madison Rayne makes her 50 Sexiest debut this year. And as part of the Beautiful People, we expected nothing less!
It’s a surprising debut for SHIMMER’s Jennifer Blake. The young Canadian, known for her platinum blonde hair is ‘Girl Dynamite’ indeed!
Recently returned Knockout, Christy Hemme drops 20 spots on this year’s list. Has Christy lost her sexy?
She’s a former Diva and former Knockout but it looks like being away from the industry has hurt her. Shelly Martinez drops to #33 from last year’s 19.
Making her Sexiest list debut is the trail-blazing FCW Diva, Angela Fong. Never has there been such a buzz about a developmental Diva & that translates to a good debut for a girl that has yet to get national exposure.
Holding onto her spot from last year, Stephanie McMahon is still #31 on the 50 Sexiest list. Sure she’s a backstage face these days, but you voters seem to remember her!
In a huge leap from last year, former ECW Diva Lena Yada climbs to #30 on this year’s 50 Sexiest list. Lena has already wrestled for ChickFight and will soon be seen in Wrestlicious.
And taking a giant tumble is one of the most well remembered ex-Divas, Stacy Keibler. She falls to 29 from last year’s 11.
Raw’s Rosa Mendes moves up two spots from last year, helped by her call-up in December 2008, no doubt.
It’s good news for Katie Lea, as the ECW Diva moves up 9 spots from last year! Has her gothic new look had something to do with it?
Former legend, Sable comes in at #26 this year — down from last year’s 22. This year, she celebrates a new baby boy & her husband is king of UFC!
Moving up three spots from last year is Natalya. The SmackDown-turned-ECW-turned SmackDown-again Diva, is currently enjoying success with her boyfriend & cousin.
Making a huge debut on the Sexiest list is SHIMMER’s Lacey. The 26 year old brings more SHIMMER representation to 50 Sexiest, this year.
Three spots up for the Beautiful People’s Velvet Sky. She follows in the footsteps of Madison Rayne. Can Angelina Love make the list too?
A strong debut for Alicia Fox at #22. Since debuting last July, Alicia has been a member of all 3 WWE rosters in seemingly record time.
Speaking of big debuts, TNA Knockout Daffney got a renewal on her wrestling career this year. Once a huge part of WCW, it’s good to have her back. And you agree as she debuts at #21.
Two time Knockouts Champion falls three places from last year. This year, she emerged as the leader of the Beautiful People but that wasn’t enough to stop her from falling!
|SARA DEL REY|
SHIMMER has had a strong showing on 50 Sexiest and that continues with former SHIMMER Champ, Sara Del Rey making her debut on the list at #19. The highest debut of a SHIMMER talent this year.
The Glamazon is a non-mover this year, at #18. Since losing the Women’s Championship in January, she’s been pushed aside but that hasn’t affected her ranking.
Former Diva, Ashley Massaro drops one spot from last year’s list to this year’s #17.
She knows you want her… because Jillian jumps several spots to this year’s #16, up from last year’s #21.
It’s not great news for the Diva voted Most Stylish last year. Layla drops out of the top 10 and has to make do with #15 this year.
It’s been a career changing year for the artist formerly known asVictoria, but it hasn’t affected her too much. Tara drops one spot from last year.
It’s 7 spots down for Candice Michelle, who was released earlier this year. Admist rumours of weight gain contributing to her release, it seems fans have decided she’s not as sexy as she was last year.
Also dropping out of the top 10 is Kelly Kelly. The youngster of the pack falls 4 spots this year.
And continuing the trend of Divas no longer top 10 material is Maria. She takes the sharpest fall of all, considering she was #4 last year. Top 5 to outside the top 10.
Making the single biggest jump on this year’s list is Alissa Flash aka Cheerleader Melissa aka Raisha Saeed. Alissa jumps 34 spots from last year and is the only Knockout on the top 10!
Representing the Diva legends, four time Women’s Champion, Lita drops four places from last year. However staying in the top 10 shows what a hold our past Divas have on the audience.
It’s been a whirlwind year for Michelle, first ever Divas Champ and now the Women’s Champ. So it’s only fitting she breaks into the top 10, moving up four spots from last year.
Eve Torres’ star continues to rise and now the rookie Diva’s success rubs off on 50 Sexiest. She jumps 18 spots to land herself a top ten spot at #7.
It’s another Diva legend in the top ten! Last year’s #2, Torrie Wilson falls four spots to sit just outside the top 5 this year. Torrie enjoyed success on “I’m a Celebrity” on NBC in June.
This time last year, she was a Knockout. Now she’s a Diva and that helps her jump four spots to this year’s top 5.
Three years since she left, Trish Stratus continues to guarantee Stratusfaction. The legend falls one spot from last year, but still lands herself a plum spot.
Four time Women’s Champion and current Divas Champion, Mickie James breaks the mould of sexy by rising four spots to this year’s #3.
The Sexiest of the Sexy just falls short of proving her nickname to be true. But she has reason to be pleased, jumping 13 spots to take this year’s #2 spot.
Proving to be the quintessential Diva for the modern day, Melina retains her crown! There’s no denying that she is a perfect mix of athleticism and sex appeal. Doubling the votes of her nearest rival, Melina is still your sexiest woman in wrestling!
