Honourable Mention: The Beautiful People
Their lack of wrestling skill kept them off of the main list but their skanky diva esque attitude makes them a great parody of the WWE Divas and the perfect heel stable for the Knockouts Divison, which is supposed to be about wrestling. However, with the Knockouts slowly becoming the Divas, their role is becoming pointless. 10. A tie between:
Her superb mat wrestling skills and her high risk offence has made La Amapola one of the most successful women ever in Mexican wrestling. She is currently the second longest regining CMLL Women's Champion (622 days and counting) in history. She may no longer have the mask but La Amapola is the best women's wrestler in Mexico right now.
In Mexico and Japan, she is known as The Dark Angel. In TNA she is Sarita. But in Canadian Maritimes, we know her as Sweet Sarah Stock. Sarah would win gold in the Maritimes before traveling all over Canada and the United States before landing in Mexico where she would become a huge star. Now with her in TNA, her star could rise higher than it ever has before. Sarah Stock will always be Canada's Sweet Dark Angel.
9. Cheerleader Melissa
She may look cute in her Cheerleader uniform but Melissa can mess you up in a heart beat. This accomplished power wrestler has made a name for herself in promotions like Chickfight, Shimmer, and Ring of Honor. And now that TNA has allowed her to remove the burka, she can take over the Knockouts Divison as The Future Legend Alyssa Flash. 2-4-6-8 who do we appreciate? Melissa, Melissa. Go Melissa! Yay!
8. Mariko Yoshida
Mariko Yoshida is one of the most respected women wrestlers in Japan and is easily one of the best that the country has ever seen. She is a seasoned veteran who can hit you with some niffty high rick moves and tie you up in submission that you would never have dreamed possible. she is currently the head trainer for ARISON.
Victoria is one of the best women wrestlers to ever walk out of the WWE and she has two regins as Women's Champion to prove it. She is a well polished wrestler who has competed against the best women that the WWE has ever produced and has even helped to develop the younger female stars on the the roster. Unfortunately, she would be forced down the card by the influx of models making their way into the promotion. She was understandably pissed off and left with her dignity. She would arrive in TNA as Tara and win the Knockouts Championship. The regin was short but now that she is feuding with Awesome Kong, it is forgiveable.
6. Beth Phoenix
She is the powerhouse of mainstream women's wrestling, The Glamazon Beth Phoenix. She is living proof that the WWE Women's Divison should be about more than just looking good, as she can look good (without an exposed ribcage I might add) and kick ass at the same time. She has been doing so since she won two chamionships in OVW, her two championships wins in the WWE and she will continue to kick Diva ass in the future.
5. Sara Del Ray
From one powerhouse to another. The Death Ray of Sweet & Sour Inc. has been destroying opponents all over the United States in promotions like Ring of Honor, Chickfight, and Shimmer. She is a former Shimmer Champion and it is only a matter of time before she wins the title again.
4. Mickie James
Mickie James is one of the best women wrestlers to ever compete in the WWE. Her fantastic wrestling ability and bright and positive attitude has won the hearts of fans all over the world. She is a three time WWE Women's Champion and the current WWE Divas Champion. She has had classic matches with the likes of Trish Stratus, Lita, Beth Phoenix, and Melina. Mickie is so fine she blows my mind.
Perhaps the most successful woman in wrestling today, the Scream Queen, MsChif is the current Shimmer Champion and NWA Midwest and World Women's Champion. She has the flexability of Melina the power of Sara Del Ray and the green mist of The Great Muta (which is super cool). Not only is she a fantastic wrestler but she is also a very smart woman. She has a degree in genetic science and works as a scientist in a lab when she is not wrestling. MsChif can be my Soul's Tormentor anytime.
2. Gail Kim
She is one of the hardest workers in the WWE right now as well as a former WWE Women's Champion and the first ever TNA Knockouts Champion, after founding the divison. I don't think I have ever seen a woman wrestler work as hard as she has to not only perfect her craft in the ring but to also make women's wrestling credible in North America. She is in my opinion the greatest women's wrestler to ever come out of Canada and could one day be the best of all time.
1. Awesome Kong
Ok. Seriously. Who else did you think it was going to be? Ever since she has made her debut in 2002, she has been leaving a path of broken bodies (both male and female) in her wake. She has turned Japan into her own personal stompping ground after winning several Women's Championships and tag team titles with the legendary Aja Kong. She would also become a powerful force in America as well winning several titles, like the AWA Superstars Women's Championship, the NWA World Women's Championship, and the TNA Knockouts Championship (twice). While in TNA, she has become a destructive force and has put everyone in the locker room on notice. She has also helped turn mainstream women's wrestling on its head, showing that power and ability is what makes womens entertaining. Not bra and panties. For making women's wrestling the way it should be, Awesome Kong is the top women's wrestler in the world today.
