Diva Dirt TV: We Dig Crazy Chicks, Too! A Look at Wrestling’s Craziest Female Characters

There’s nothing quite like a crazy female in wrestling to stir things up.

Mickie James rose to fame in 2005 due to her overenthusiastic affection for Trish Stratus, while Victoria had the opposite problem — she was overenthusiastic about hurting Trish!

Then there’s the likes of innovators such as Luna and the eccentric Sensational Sherri who, while no longer with us, will not be forgotten for leaving their mark.

And for present day, there’s AJ. A young Diva who has grabbed everyone’s attention with her off-balance tendencies on WWE television in recent weeks.

Here at Diva Dirt, we too dig crazy chicks so much so that our latest Diva Dirt TV takes a look at some of our favorite females who have helped pave the way for young AJ to get down with her bad self.

Check it out below:

    WWE has always had success with the psycho-Diva storyline. In the past decade, it has been used three times…….

    Victoria

    Mickie James

    AJ

    All three times, it was a success and really added to the Divas storylines.

      Its a new decade now though so it will work, Mickie’s storyline was what 05/06 ?

  • javiousmckenzie

    This just shows how weak AJ psycho routine is she is like Disney Channel crazy Luna, Victoria, Mickie and Daffney are all epic. AJ has not done one thing memorable compared to these ladies when it comes to being crazy. I cant pick a favorite Luna promos were perfect, Mickie played that character to a tea (hope she returns to it) Victoria who i call the Sheila Carter of WWE LOVED IT, Daffney Harley Quinn ughhh memories. AJ dont belong in the category

    • Jhonmarco

      It’s just a different type of crazy. I personally like that it is not the same thing as Victoria or Mickie’s psycho runs.

      • redsandman99

        Me too. She’d get accused of copying them if it was like theirs (though some do compare her to Mickie anyway).

        • Jhonmarco

          Agreed. I find AJ to be killing her role with her facial expressions alone.

        • javiousmckenzie

          The Miz girl face she makes she looks like a little girl who just had her last cookie took before she starts to cry and i love AJ im saying its like to take it to the next level i mean kissing several guys falling in love with them manipulating all them is not crazy it whorish lol but its time she does something really crazy other than skip around and make that crazy face

        • redsandman99

          She’s also lost control and attacked the likes of Natalya, Kaitlyn and Layla as viciously as one her size can really and the dressing up as Kane was pretty kooky in my opinion…could another level be gone to with her? Probably yeah. The thing is, I don’t think she’s meant to be full blown pyschotic like Mickie and Victoria were for awhile. She’s emotionally unstable with the potential to go completely off the deep end. If they have Punk reject her in actually having a relationship with her I say bring on full blown psycho.

      • Jhonmarco

        What redsandman99 said basically haha.

        • javiousmckenzie

          You may be right

    • WPF_93

      AJ isn’t as crazy compared to Victoria, Mickie etc. AJ hasn’t attack DB yet and doesn’t whenever she has an opportunity, that would get her over big time if she did. If it was Victoria or Luna, they wouldn’t have thought twice about attacking him with something. I don’t like how WWE play her up to be one of the craziest because there have been much better psycho’s. though its down to booking i suppose.

      • redsandman99

        I don’t necessarily agree that attacking Bryan would get her over big time. The thing is, even though he’s a heel he still gets mixed reactions and sometimes a lot more cheers than boos. If they wanted her to attack them they’d have to be careful of where they did it or risk getting a reaction they wouldn’t want.

    • http://twitter.com/lostmikeys Kaledrina

      SHEILA CARTER <3 LOL. winter/katie lea has always been the sheila carter of wrestling for me, solely based on how similar i think they look xD

  • redsandman99

    I love all the women mentioned. Crazy chicks work well in wrestling. It’s a proven fact. And each of the women have brought something different to their crazy.

    • perceval

      It’s also worth noting that the psycho Victoria & Mickie storylines led to the two best Women’s Championship matches in Wrestlemania history, at WM 19 & 22.

  • Jhonmarco

    I absolutely love these women’s run as psychos. Simply amazing, though I may love Mickie’s just a bit more as it was a part of (IMO) the best diva storyline to ever grace TV.

  • http://www.youtube.com/user/dsanchez96?feature=mhum sanchezdiego96

    Victoria was my favorite! Everything from her look, to her music, to her style made her seem legit crazy. Close second is Daffney.

  • B1G_FaN

    If AJ puts her hand between Layla’s crotch and then licks her hand, we can compare her crazy to Mickie! lol

  • shameronstar

    I think AJ could make the list, but the thing that helped all of her predecessors stand out in the long run is that they each had a least one historic feud with a popular face so in order for AJ to cement her spot in the “Crazy Chick Hall of fame” AJ needs to turn full heel at some point, become more dangerous physically, and most important needs a career defining feud with the right person and the only current divas who she could do that with depending on the direction that could be taken are Kelly Kelly or Kharma!

    • redsandman99

      While I would like to see an AJ/Kharma feud, I don’t know if the AJ as a heel scenario would work with Kharma, just given the sheer size difference. Kharma would only need one good shot to take her down. Physically she could do more damage to Kelly and be more of a threat to her.

      • cutymania

        Even next to Kelly Kelly, AJ looks tiny lol the only divas she could match up against were Maxine and Layla. No one believed AJ taking down Natalya and Kaitlyn (at least I didn’t), even AJ taking down Kelly would get an intense eye roll from me.

        • redsandman99

          AJ’s actually only two inches shorter and while billed to be about 95 pounds by WWE, I’ve heard she’s more about 107. She’s really not that much smaller than Kelly at all.

  • perceval

    Victoria & Mickie were my favorites. “All The Things She Said” was the perfect theme for Victoria during her feud with Trish. Loved her Titantron then, too, with the fist opening with the eye in the palm.

    • Jhonmarco

      Agreed. I marked out for that theme. Loved it. Speaking of psychos, I would love to see a team of psychos form between Tara & Mickie. Book it TNA!

      • perceval

        They played a little with that during their late 2006-early 2007 feud.

        Mickie: “People call me a psycho, but THAT be-yach is CRAZY!”

  • http://au.groups.yahoo.com/group/WWE_Divas/ art

    i enjoyed victorias the most i think i was like this girl needs help biting finger nails talking to mirrors lol…im not a massive fan of aj’s because they had her beat down other divas who tear aj apart & her acting is abit off for me…

  • bxradimus

    I think they have all played different types of psycho characters amazingly.

    Luna has always been my very favorite and she’s the original psycho. So I’m always happy to see other crazy female characters, especially when they all play them so well.

  • Raekon

    Luna hands down was the best psycho diva of the past!
    Sensantional Sherri and Bull Nakano came after as did the “Monster Ripper” Bertha Faye (before she switched to the flowery stuff).
    Then came Psycho Victoria which was totally awesome!
    Mickie followed and so did Psycho Rosa (unfortunately only in FCW :/ ).
    Now we have AJ which is doing great!
    So all in all I enjoyed all of these girls!

    • FameHooker18

      Rosa was slightly psycho on TV, when she was Beth Phoenix’s Number 1 fan. I was so scared when she dressed up as paparazzi and attacked Melina during her entrance

      • perceval

        Of course, Melina is the woman who kidnapped people to get her first title shot. :)

    • http://www.youtube.com/user/999xander999?feature=mhee Sherri Martel Fan

      Sherri was psycho a long time before Luna!

  • FameHooker18

    What happened to Krazy Kelly? Joke, I don’t think one week counts :P

    • http://twitter.com/BroskiRomano Ryan

      Squinting eyes and annoying screaming don’t count bro

  • Essex Boy

    Luna 10567543214799866544345564 %. Watch her promos and back stage fights with Sherri. The women can cut a psychotic promo like no other women or man in history in wrestling.

  • Jordan

    I mean this only as a constructive criticism, the DDTV graphics look pretty terrible but at least Jake Verterano stopped the whole Mario Lopez bobble-head thing on every.single.word. It got to be really distracting from what he was reporting in the first couple of episodes.

  • javiousmckenzie

    All in all i have to give it to Victoria yes Mickie was great and Daffney is to but far as character you can tell Victoria watched a lot of Young & The Restless taking from Sheila Carter the most notorious psycho from TV the slow stalking the talking to mirros glass to Christy Head the jerking biting nails seeing things hallucinating the music omg that was my fav song then its like it was perfection

  • javiousmckenzie

    I really want Paige to be the next psycho heel honestly she already gives me a mix of Victoria and Daffney i would love her to come in with The Ascension and play the goth psycho like Drusila from Buffy The Vampire Slayer and feud with Kelly this era Victoria vs Trish

  • PeriodPalace

    jake is so awesome and perfect in every way

  • Crazy_J

    I don’t really see AJ as crazy.. I see her as a more of a manipulator. The reason I say that is because unlike other diva’s who were “psycho”, AJ seems to know what she’s doing, we just don’t know what she’s doing. Which is why I think a heel AJ vs a face Kharma would be excellent. I think it would work a lot better than the generic face vs heel Kharma everyone seems to want.. Yes AJ is smaller thats why she needs to be heel so she can cheat.

    I’d have to say that Victoria is my favorite psycho diva ever, she played the part well and her look fit the part.

  • http://twitter.com/BroskiRomano Ryan

    Crazy chicks for sure are hot specially aj Mickie n Victoria!

    Was really a hot lesbian storyline with trish lol good times man, and Victoria the raging muscle chick dedicated to destroying trish was hot n violent! Rated r baby! Lol awesome matches and now aj lee is hot in her own demented lovable way too!
    Love how aj isn’t just THAT, she goes from smiling to wrestling to angry to spiteful looks to sexy nutcase and repeat

    Also Luna vachon was awesome haha

  • #1FoxFan

    What about Maria I thought she was psycho as well when she had the blonde hair goin on. Or am I mistaken…?

    • redsandman99

      Maria’s never had a crazy gimmick to my knowledge. Ditzy yes. No crazy though

  • theprincedann

    For me, it is between Victoria and Daffney!
    Just Youtube Daffney in WCW days. But she is an actress so its understandable, and I dont need to explain Victoria.

  • TheGamergirl22

    I really want to see AJ vs Lita in Wrestlemania 29 since it’s in New Jersey her home state

    Or seeing TNA its letting go of KO’s

    Crazy AJ vs Psycho Mickie James that would be epic

  • Future-Knockout/Diva

    I always thought in Melinas early WWE days with MNM and into singles career that she was a little crazy with her screaming and taunting, but she wasn’t as crazy as these women were.

  • Hunt-A1

    Victoria will forever be my favourite psycho. She done it to perfection in my eyes.

  • http://www.facebook.com/AshleyCenasWWEDivas AshleyLUVSCena

    yes jessicka havok i luv her
