… Maryse! In a flip-flop of last year’s top two, the two time Divas Champion has replaced Melina at the apex of this year’s 50 Sexiest Divas countdown, thwarting the current Divas Champion’s chances of a three-peat.
Maryse was last year’s #2, narrowly coming behind Melina and this year, narrowly beating Melina. In 2008, she ranked at #15 on the countdown.
This year’s chart saw more votes than ever. 15,000 votes were cast over the course of the competition.
Also making the top 10 is Mickie James, holding onto her #3 spot from last year, despite being released earlier this year. Mickie’s charting shows her continuing popularity even without a WWE spotlight.
WWE Women’s Champion, Layla, makes a big leap from last year’s #15 to #4 this year, perhaps attributed to her rising star power as one half of Lay-Cool.
Two big debuts inside the top 10 include SHIMMER’s Tenille Tayla and Wrestlicious’ Lizzy Valentine. The two independent stars are without the exposure of a big national company like WWE or TNA, which makes their debuts all the more impressive.
