When we hear the word ‘wrestling’ it is instantly linked to the picture of muscular men fighting each other in a ring surrounded by thousands of roaring people. The thought of female wrestlers doesn’t cross our minds. Though women in general don’t like physical fights and rather confine themselves to verbal duals; when it comes to wrestling they too are not far behind. You would also be pleased to know that as early as 1937 we had our first Women’s wrestling champion in the form of Mildred Burke. So women really are everywhere, in every field including wrestling. Things have changed in the WWE arena where female wrestlers have mastered the language of the kicks and chokeslams. With so many female wrestlers to choose from it is actually a daunting task to pick only ten. In spite of that below is a list of some of the best female wrestlers from World Wrestling Entertainment.
