I'm a fan of Women's Wrestling and it has been a tradition of the professional wrestling business since the carnival days, now some say Women's Wrestling is dying but I would like to differ.
There are still lots of talented young divas that are wrestling today and if only the major promotions know how to push them properly, then Women's Wrestling will be as just big as men's!
So for this list, I've gathered 10 great women wrestlers that I think should be in the WWE Hall of Fame! They have shown great performances through the years and have paved the way for the divas of today!
So without further ado, here is my Top 10 Female Wrestlers that should be in the WWE HOF!

Leilani Kai is a great and dependable worker. She had great singles matches with Wendi Richter and Alundra Blayze, both happened on WrestleMania!
In February 1985 she even defeated Richter to become Women's Champion!
She is probably best known for her tag-team with Judy Martin where they were known as The Glamour Girls. Leilani Kai became a two-time Women's Tag-Team Champ and had great matches with The Jumping Bomb Angels!
She's a great forgotten legend and has actually contributed a lot to women's wrestling back in the 80's.
P.S. I hope BigDaddyD can pronounce her name correctly someday! :D
Although just like Leilani Kai, she was outshined by other great divas in her time like Trish Stratus & Lita. Molly Holly is probably best remembered on her time as one of the kayfabe cousins of Bob & Crash Holly.
Molly is also a two time Women's Champion! She defeated Trish Stratus in 2002 and Gail Kim in 2003. For a short time she was also a WWE Hardcore Champion after winning the belt from her "cousin"; Crash.
Molly Holly is more than just a pretty face, she's talented and charismatic. It just so happen the time she was in got more better than divas than her.
The Crush Gals
The Crush Gals has made some of the biggest draws and ratings ever in Japan's professional wrestling history! They are two of the most respected and popular female wrestlers ever in Japan.
They became 4 time WWWA Tag-Team Champions! Later on one of the members; Chigusa Nagayo held her own successful promotion; GAEA and has trained many women wrestlers that wanted to go in the business.
If only they were also successful in the US, I think they would have a great feud against The Jumping Bomb Angels which we would see later in the list!
This vicious woman from Saitama,Japan has held the WWWA Tag-Team Champion two times with Bull Nakano and Crane Yu! She also won some belts in AJPW.
Matsumoto is best known for her feuds against the lieks of Lioness Asuka and Chigusa Nagayo! Her only WWE match was in a tag-team match with Bull Nakano where they dominated the whole match!
If WWE wants actual female combatants in their Hall of Fame; Dump Matsumoto would be a great addition.
No doubt that Chyna made a huge impact in her WWE run! Whether it's against fellow female competitors or even against males, Chyna wouldn't back down. This what made her really famous.
She's the first and only woman to win the Intercontinental Championship (twice!) and she's also a former Women's Champion and a big part of DX's growth to popularity!
Sadly now, Chyna is known for the bad decisions she made in life. And with her problems with The McMahon family (especially HHH & Stephanie) we may never see her in the HOF, which sucks because she's a great wrestler.
Lisa Marie Varon (aka Victoria)
She is a two-time Women's Champion and she also had a successful career in TNA where she became a five time Knockout's Champion and a one time Knockout's Tag-Team Champion with Brooke Tessmacher!
Victoria was successful in WWE's Women's Division without a doubt and only time will tell on when we will see her in the Hall of Fame.
If you would like to know what's up with her lately, check out JR's podcast interview with Victoria!
Yokota is considered as one of the best Japanese wrestlers of ALL TIME! Yes, not only in female Puroresu wrestling but in Puroresu wrestling in general!
She's one of the trailblazers for highflying stunts in women's wrestling and is also a multi-time champion! She was the first ever AJW Champion and also the AJW Junior Champion.
Yokota also held the WWWA Heavyweight and WWWA Tag-Team titles twice!
The only thing that's probably gonna keep her away from the WWE Hall of Fame is that she wasn't popular in the USA unlike the final three wrestlers you will see on this list.
The Jumping Bomb Angels
The Jumping Bomb Angels are the reason why a lot of divas today in USA are doing highflying moves! They were absolutely loved by the American audience and it's because of their absolutely amazing stunts.
The Angels are still to this day one of the most exciting tag-team in WWE history, if not the most exciting of all time! They've both held the AJPW Women's Tag-Team title and WWF Ladies Tag-Team title.
They are best known for their feud against The Glamour Girls and I think in my opinion, the WWE Hall of Fame won't be complete if Noriyo Tateno & Itsuki Yamazaki aka The Jumping Bomb Angels weren't in it!
Mildred Burke is one of the earliest well known female wrestlers in history. She is best known for her toughness and would even challenge male audiences after her match!
According to a fact; she has defeated at least 200 men in her wrestling career in the 1930's! She also ran her own promotion but it didn't last long after divorcing her husband; Billy Wolfe who has a promoter back then.
Mildred Burke won the World's Women title three times and was also a NWA Junior Heavyweight Champion! Her best known match was against June Byers which happened to be a legit shoot fight between the two!
The only thing that's probably gonna keep her away from the WWE HOF is that she did not even made it in time to see what WWE is like, but hey if the WWE wanted to respect the pioneers era then Mildred Burke would be a great choice for them!
If you're a wrestling fan and don't know who Bull Nakano is, then don't even consider yourself as one! She's one of the best female wrestlers of all time and could possibly be in the Top 5!
Nakano has had some of the best feuds and matches both in Japan and also in USA,Europe,and Mexico! Some of her unforgettable feuds were against Aja Kong,Alundra Blayze,Manami Toyota,and Velvet McIntyre (no relation to Drew McIntyre!)
Bull Nakano has been a big name in both WWE and WCW. She is a one time Women's Champion and even a one time CMLL Women's Champion in Mexico!
Of course she also held multiple belts in Japan such as the WWWA World Heavyweight title (twice),WWWA Tag-Team Champion (thrice),and WWWA Junior Champion.
She also had a decent tag-team run with long time partner and friend; Dump Masumoto.
Bull Nakano (just like The Jumping Bomb Angels) is one of the legends that won't make the WWE Hall of Fame complete without them!
