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!

Round 1: In the second of 8 face-offs in Round 1, we have two blonde bombshells who, in different eras, were arguably WWE’s top female star. At the height of the Attitude Era, Sable was a Playboy covergirl, received applause that rivaled The Rock and Stone Cold Steve Austin and held the WWE Women’s Title. The fame seemed to go to her head, however, as she went from one of WWE’s best loved to WWE’s top mean girl, humiliating poor Tori and hiring a ginormous female bodyguard to do her dirty work in Nicole Bass. Returning to WWE in 2003, Sable hadn’t changed, this time running into good girls such as Torrie Wilson and Stephanie McMahon. As for Trish Stratus, who had during Sable’s hiatus from WWE, become its new top Diva, she started out as a mean girl before capturing the fans’ hearts. However, after turning on the beloved Chris Jericho at WrestleMania XX, Trish unleashed her inner mean girl and delivered some of her best promo work on the likes of Lita, Christy Hemme and more.
It’s a tough choice, but the vote is entirely down to you!
