5 best female wrestlers in the world today
Women’s wrestling has made considerable progress in showing women as strong and powerful beings that can make a great deal of money and gain tremendous success. All over the world but mostly in the U.S.A, people are quite fond of watching entertainment shows where they see sportspeople acting and pretending to get in a feud with their fellow on-stage partners. It’s easier to watch than a boxing match and way more fun than a simple fight. Plus, nobody gets bruised, and they all go home safe and sound.
If you’re interested to know which ladies have managed to reach the top in the international wrestling world, you can start by looking at this small selection of talents presented below.
Asuka is one of the best female wrestlers in the world because she’s been undefeated until now. Every time she steps in the ring, she makes history. Besides being a genuine entertainer, she can make fans hang onto the big moment every single match.
Over the course of one year she managed to pass some WWE women’s championship records, and she seems unstoppable when it comes to trophies.
This Japanese wrestler is signed to WWE and performs on the Raw brand. Asuka is a former NXT Women’s Champion because she had 510 days of title, longer than any other female wrestler.
Also, she uses a particular technique that includes all sorts of kicks and submission holds that put her in the stiff wrestling style category.
Besides her career in wrestling, Asuka worked as a video game journalist and freelance graphic designer. Because of this, she received sponsorship from major companies such as Microsoft and Nintendo.
Back in 2004, when she first started her professional career in wrestling, Asuka went under the name of Kana.
Among her achievements, we can include winning the JWP open weight Championship, the Smash Diva Championship, the Reina World Women’s Championship, and the Wave Tag Team Championship.
In 2015, Asuka signed a development deal with World Wrestling Entertainment, and in 2017 she began promoting for the company. In the same year, she managed to be the first Japanese wrestler that topped the Pro Wrestling Illustrated annual list of 50 females.
Alexa Bliss is another excellent example of how work and focus can bring you the things that you’ve always dreamed of having. Not only she’s a two-time Raw women’s championship, but Alexa has won the SmackDown championship for ladies two times, as well.
Even though she poses as an arrogant character, fans still love her and watched the entire season of Total Divan only to see her performances.
At the moment, Alexa is doing her second reign at the Raw Women’s Championship. In 2013 she signed a deal with WWE and began working at the Performance Center and developmental brand NXT located in Orlando, Florida.
Once she made her main roster debut, she became the SmackDown Women’s Champion and succeeded in holding this title two consecutive times, which nobody achieved it before her.
Then, in April 2017, Alexa went on to start a new journey with the Raw brand. She became the first woman in the history of wrestling to have the Raw Women’s title and the SmackDown Women’s title at the same time.
Charlotte Flair comes from a family with a history in wrestling. Her father, Ric Flair was a Hall of Fame professional wrestler back in the days.
She is an excellent female performer in American wrestling today, and she has 4 Raw Women’s championship titles.
Furthermore, Charlotte is the only superstar in the wrestling entertainment that holds the NXT women’s championship title, the Divas championship, the Raw Women’s championship, and the SmackDown championship.
In addition to this, she managed to defeat Alexa Bliss, who currently owns the Raw women’s title.
While still in her teens, Charlotte appeared with her father Ric in the World Championship Wrestling. She got the taste for action, and in 2012, she took on a new challenge and began training for the developmental brand NXT.
It didn’t last long until she was named ‘Rookie of the Year’ by the Pro Wrestling Illustrated at the 2014 edition. Plus, she won the WWE Divas Championship in the following year.
An interesting fact is that her match against the talented Sasha Banks in October 2016 was the first ever to be a WWE pay-per-view one that featured female wrestlers.
Because of the tremendous success, Pro Wrestling Illustrated named Charlotte ‘Woman of the Year’ and ‘World’s top female professional wrestler’ in 2016.
This lady right here deserves a spot on this list because anytime someone mentions something related to wrestling, it’s got to be her name somewhere. Sasha is fierce and delivers each performance with grace and confidence.
Because she’s not afraid to put her entire body on the line, she has a large fan base that adores her and watches her live or on TV every single time she comes to the surface. ‘The Boss’ as some people call her, likes to take risks, so all of the wrestling matches are filled with recklessness, making the entire experience a bit dangerous but also exciting.
Before WWE, Sasha wrestled on several independent circuits, including Chaotic Wrestling. She holds many records in the industry such as the longest women’s match in the history of WWE wrestling with a total length of 30 minutes. Not to mention the fact that she won alongside her wrestler pal, Charlotte Flair, the prize for ‘Feud of the Year’ for their confrontation in 2016.
Natalya has wrestling in her blood because she is a member of the famous Hart wrestling family. Trained in Jiu-Jitsu, she is signed to WWE and performs on the SmackDown brand, where she is a former champion.
In 2010, Natalya won the WWE Divas Championship, and in 2017 she defeated the other contestant and went home with the SmackDown Women’s Champion title.
