Who is Wrestling’s Best Mean Girl? Round 1: Ivory vs Melina

At its root, wrestling has always been about good vs evil, bad guys vs good guys — or in our case, bad girls vs good girls.

In a brand new feature at Diva Dirt, we want you to help us pick wrestling’s best mean girl. Now, there is a clear distinction between a mean girl and your regular “heel”. When we say “mean girl” we refer to the women in wrestling who were feisty, vindictive, acid-tongued and bitchy! They may not necessarily be the toughest, or the baddest, but they certainly had tons of personality.

Based on your nominations, we picked the 16 most mentioned women in wrestling to advance to our knock-out bracket tournament. Keep your eyes peeled over the next few weeks as you will be asked to vote between some of wrestling’s best mean girls and help us whittle it down from just 16 to one!

- To see the full tournament brackets click here (Note: All pairings drawn at random.)

Round 1: Both Ivory and Melina had the gift of gab, running down their opponents with cutting remarks. Who can forget Ivory in the Right to Censor trashing Chyna? Or her targeting poor Moolah? Then there’s Melina, the fiery hellcat who would scare any opponent with her primal scream. But who’s the better mean girl?

It’s a tough choice, but the vote is entirely down to you!

    Melina was a total bitch…
    Ivory was straight up bad ass!!

    Love em both but Ivory was something else… Not to mention when Ivory was in RTc cult that was hilarious or before that she would call guys perverts lol… Or in 2001 she was down right bad, hitting Matt Hardy with a crowbar and taking out Lita with it too!

  • MrForeverMelina

    I was growing up in the Melina era do MELINAAA ALL THE WAY

  • theprincedann

    Very tough choice.

    I grew up with Ivory, but Melina was always my favorite female WRESTLER.
    Gonna go with Melina as her character had a lot more time invested in it, and definitely a bigger fanbase. People loved to have Melina, whereas people just hated Ivory. SUCH A TOUGH CHOICE!

  • perceval

    Tough one, but I voted for Melina because her character was more the Mean Girl archetype. Her expressions of disgust when she was having to contemplate dealing with some “average” person (In a promo on Foley: “He drives a MINIVAN! Ugh!”), her entrance with the red carpet & paparazzi, always being on her cell phone, and the segment where she flipped out on Christy because Christy caused her to break a nail were classic Mean Girl.

    Allll The Way.. yeah ivory was bad. But


  • Piledriver’ Tavios

    Melina, i just love her!

    HELL CAT!!!

  • AndieMcPhee

    Let’s take a look at some of the things Melina did:

    – She seduced Batista and then proceeded to sue him for sexual harassment.
    – She threatened to do the same thing to Vince McMahon, her boss.
    – She got her partners to kidnap Trish Stratus, tied her up and booted her in the head to secure a title shot.
    – She played the role of Mick Foley’s friend and protege, toying with him to the point where he literally kissed his boss’ ass to save her job, and then turned on him fired him herself a minute later.
    – She yelled at Heidenreich, a special needs character, that she’d never be his friend and that he was like a ‘kindergartener ON CRACK’.
    – She agreed to date Hornswoggle purely for a title shot and bitched about him behind his back.
    – She led a campaign against Playboy, basically calling all the cover models sluts who couldn’t come close to her in terms of talent, beauty and class.
    – She brought an ex-ATM contestant onto SD, called her a c list celebrity and proceeded to beat her up.
    – She attacked her friend Joey Mercury when he lost MNM the titles, booted a referee in the crotch and got herself and her boyfriend fired for slapping the GM, all in the same night.
    – Victims of her slap include the likes of John Cena, Rey Mysterio, Teddy Long, Jerry Lawler, Ric Flair and countless others.

    I love Ivory and if she was against anyone else then sure, but come ON.

  • Lily

    Melina, hands down.

  • http://facebook.com/mykael.kennedy mykel1990

    Ivory, hands down, she to me, was the best WWE Diva ever on the mic, and she was just vicious, especially with Mae and Moolah, she could and did run down just about every woman in the World Wrestling Federation and was hilarious in doing so. I never really thought Melina to be all that bad, she screamed a lot and yelled “Bitch” and slapped people, that was it.

  • TorrieWilsonFan03

    Ivory all the way

  • LaylaElFan

    Melina and Ivory were both a badass,but i have to go with Ivory

  • SarahD

    Melina duh.

  • http://jakeyon.blogspot.com Jakey

    Melina was a great Mean Girl (I loved when Candice Michelle gestured that she was gonna get the belt, and Melina’s response was “Yes, Candice, I know you’re fat, I don’t know why you’re reminding me”), but I *have* to go with Ivory. She was one of the few women who the powers that be would just send out there to the ring with a microphone, and she always delivered, even if her subjects (Tori, B.B., et al) weren’t always the most worthy recipients.

  • redsandman99

    Both were great but I went with Ivory.

  • Valese

    Obviously Melina. Who could forget when she called Mickie James a whore? Or when she had Nitro and Mercury kidnap Trish before kicking her head in?
    And of course the day she made my good books when she called Maria a bitch and slapped the stupid off of her face.
    Plus, Melina had way more presence and charisma than Ivory ever did as a heel.

  • VelvetLoveFan

    I only watched Melina actually the first woman’s match I saw was Ashley vs Melina when Khali almost attacked Ashley sooo Melina all the way!

  • lucky1now

    This might be the closest match up yet

  • MELshocked

    Tough one, I love both of these girls so much. This is so hard lol.

    I want to go with Melina, but Ivory was so… badass. I think Melina has an upperhand though, as she wasn’t just a bitch. She was THE bitch. At least her character was, anyway. Ivory was mean, but Melina was… she was just down right cruel. I remember when she slapped Maria backstage. And who can forget when she tortured Mickie. So I’m definitely gonna have to go with Melina.

    Funny thing, Ivory was a teacher/trainer on the season of Tough Enough that Melina was on. Sadly, Melina didn’t get far.. but it’s a bit ironic lol.

  • http://www.tpwprowrestling.freeforums.org Juan

    I went with Melina! Her days as a part of MNM were classic and she definitely pulled off the mean girl gimmick with perfection!!! Plus WWE built her up and invested a lot of time in her development!

  • queennattie

    Ivory is my all-time favorite! :P

    She was a fucking bad ass. Nobody can pull off her characters like her.

  • bikini kill

    Ivory all the way. My number one favorite.

  • MickieJamesluvslave

    have to go with melina simply because I remember her ‘badness’ more than Ivory

  • aldo

    I don’t know, they were great as mean girls…but Melina is my favorite

  • Kayfabe!

    Ivory all the way, I loved her promos and segments with Moolah and Mae Young and plus she beat up them old ladies, who beats up old ladies!!!!!? Lol, plus she had Right to Censor which she was a bitch and well really I never knew ivory not to be a mean girl so yea!

  • Kessuki

    this is a tough one because they are neck and neck but i go with Ivory because she was a great b*tch on the mic in the same vein as Trish.

  • http://www.sodazzling.com Trashley

    its a shame that these bad bitches had to come face to face since the 1st round, gotta go with ivory, melina is mean and vicious and stuck up but ivory was stright up BAD BITCH with her run with Chyna, Lita, etc etc. Very close but gotta go with ivory

  • MNM4ever

    people seriously must vote for melina!!!! i mean c’mon remember her In MNM and on raw when she slapped diva after diva,, especially the slap to maria!

  • Essex Boy

    Ivory and Melina were both great “mean” girls in their own right. Ivory was more intelligent than Melina with the way Ivory cuts her promo’s. Ivory really was a b*tch.. I loved especially when Ivory was massaging Crash Holly then she smashes a glass vase (I think it was) over his head to try and pin him for the hardcore title. Countless great moments with ivory that are very memorable.

  • B1G_FaN

    Have to go with Ivory! Ivory had the best mic skills out of every WWE Diva in the history of the WWE. Very few of the male wrestlers are as good as she is on mic!!!! She was a talker!

  • melina prez

    MELINA <3…this bitch ruled…and was funny too "yes i know candice your fat'

  • bikini kill

    Ivory is a better wrestler. Melina could screa$m and do the splits. What a lame fucking finisher she had. I like melina but she annoyed me at times and ivory has always been my personal favorite

  • http://www.facebook.com/crakho3 crakho3

    this is a tough decision

  • lucky1now

    Had to vote for ivory she was one of my favs
    I really wish she would have been active more during 2003

  • http://twitter.com/RyanRoman0 Ryan

    ur kidding right??
    Victoria is Tara bro! not Ivory

  • http://twitter.com/RyanRoman0 Ryan

    Melina hated the “normies” (normal people) lol she disliked Michelle McLooser as she called her, Maria, Christy Hemme, somehow looked down on Trish Stratus and made fun of Jillian for getting fired lol..
    Or when the Mexicools offered to forfeit their tag team match IF Melina did with them what she did with Batista she hits a total GROSS face lol..
    WWE deff invested on Melina a LOT more than on Ivory..not sure why. Melina in her early years almost did what she wanted haha

  • MrForeverMelina

    I’ll try but last time it didn’t work when I tried it.

  • Jhonmarco

    Lol, just remember to not put spaces between the periods as I did.

  • Essex Boy

    Yes you can.. Ivory ;)

  • MELshocked

    Will definitely join! :D

  • Jhonmarco

    Yay! Tell other people if you can about it!
