To a lot of WWE fans, ring divas and female fighters represent some of the most beautiful women in show business. And after all, it makes a certain sense. The women of WWE work tirelessly to stay fit and look their best, combining natural good looks with fitness to match or surpass any Hollywood beauty or female athlete. The trouble is, a lot of people who aren’t WWE fans may not recognize some of the biggest names and prettiest faces among the divas!
So just for fun, and in recognition of the lovely ladies of the WWE, here’s a look at four particularly gorgeous divas—and which popular celebrities they might remind you of!
It’s a shame that Stacy Keibler is probably best known as the former love interest of George Clooney, because she’s a bona fide star in her own right. An athlete and model with former associations in WCW, WWF, and WWE, Keibler is also a known actress, having appeared in several shows and films, perhaps most notably How I Met Your Mother for a few episodes. She’s also about as beautiful a woman as you can find on the planet.
Looks like: Well, no one really. Keibler is in a league of her own. But as Zimbio pointed out in a list of celebrity lookalike pairs, there is a certain resemblance to tennis superstar Maria Sharapova. And yes, Sharapova has done her own share of modeling on the side, so you may have gotten these two confused at some point!
One of the most well known female wrestlers in WWE history, Candice Michelle won the WWE Women’s Championship once and was Pro Wrestling Illustrated’s woman of the year in 2007. She’s done a good bit of modeling alongside other divas, and most famously helped Go Daddy with a campaign. But Michelle’s beauty generally has more of a tough girl look than that of a polished, made up model.
Looks like: Popular actress and writer Michelle Rodriguez. Although she has toyed with walking away from acting, Rodriguez seems to keep getting pulled back to perform her trademark tough girl action roles. According to Jobs & Hire, she’s netted over $30 million of net worth doing so and was called “arguably the most iconic actress in the (action) genre” by Entertainment Weekly. She’s best known for her work in the Fast & Furious franchise—and for the rugged hotness you may find similar to Candice Michelle’s!
Another Pro Wrestling Illustrated woman of the year (in 2010), Michelle McCool is certainly one of the most recognizable female stars in wrestling. She’s best known for her work in the ring, though McCool is also attached to a few somewhat-unexpected traits and activities one doesn’t always expect of a diva or fighter. For instance, she was a middle school teacher before becoming a diva, and she’s also known as a devout Christian.
Looks like: Popular adult film actress Kayden Kross. Both, essentially, are classic blonde beauties with a few striking, sharp features that almost make them vaguely intimidating. And interestingly enough, they may share a joy for wholesome, family-oriented activity. According to Kross’ interview with Adam&Eve, she would like to open a horse rescue when she’s done in adult film. In fact, the interview even reveals that she already owns a mini horse! Christianity, middle school teaching, horse riding and rescue… these two are a wonderful indication of how there’s more to actresses and models than stunning looks.
WWE’s black-haired beauty, Brie Bella is a very active star in the ring and in modeling circles. She’s essentially operated across the whole spectrum of wrestling entertainment—on Smackdown, in WWE events, on the diva circuit. But in this case, she’s best known because of her lookalike.
Looks like: Okay, we cheated a bit with this one. The answer is of course Nikki Bella, her twin sister and tag-team partner. These two are so closely linked professionally that they share a single Wikipedia page! They’re also ranked third and second (behind only Stacy Keibler) by a Rant Sports list of the hottest WWE divas of all time.
