Brie Bella
Since they're heavily featured on Monday Night Raw, Smackdown and Total Divas, the Bella Twins have gained quite a bit of popularity over the last year. Naturally, WWE fans have wondered if we will ever seen Nikki Bella and Brie Bella posing nude in Playboy magazine any time soon. While they would sell quite a bit of copies, WWE has to avoid that connection right now because of advertisers and sponsors.

Reby Sky

Independent wrestler Reby Sky, who recently got married to former WWE star Matt Hardy, is currently doing another photo shoot for Playboy. Her first nude pictorial for the magazine was back in 2007.

Masato Tanaka

Kevin Steen has been booked for a huge match at WrestleCon, which is taking place in April in New Orleans. The former ROH Heavyweight Champion will be wrestling Masato Tanaka, a Japanese star and ECW legend who is returning to America just for the event.

Masato Tanaka
After winning fans over in Japan with his hardcore style, Masato Tanaka has decided to see if he can become a star in the United States. He has signed on with Paul Heyman and made his ECW debut tonight at Living Dangerously 1998. He defeated former WCW star Doug Furnas in a singles match after hitting a running elbow.

Torrie Wilson
Since she has appeared nude in Playboy magazine before, it should come as no surprise that Torrie Wilson has plenty of naked and topless photos online. This is a really sexy picture of the former WWE diva being topless. She is wearing a bikini bottom, but it is rather skimpy.
March 26, 2014
Summer Rae
Since the company has adopted a PG image, the move is unlikely to happen, but those backstage in WWE believe that Summer Rae would have definitely been given the Playboy photo shoot nod had she been in professional wrestling a couple of years earlier. Summer Rae would have definitely been featured in a nude photo shoot when WWE allowed that sort of thing.

Summer Rae
Since she is unlikely to show up naked in Playboy magazine anytime soon, wrestling fans have flocked online to see if they can find a wardrobe malfunction video, in order to get more of a glimpse of Summer Rae. This clip, which barely shows her purple thong, has proven to be a highly viewed video on YouTube.

Alundra Blayze
While some have dismissed it as being just a rumor, there are actually some Alundra Blayze nude photos floating around somewhere. Back in 1987, she posed for Playboy magazine. However, an invitation to go wrestle with All Japan prevented her from signing a release form, so the pictures were never published. They remain in existence somewhere.

Matt Hardy
A picture from Twitter of Matt Hardy wearing panties, which supposedly belong to his wife and Playboy model Reby Sky. The former WWE star joked that he thought it was a pink bandana.
March 17, 2014
Eva Marie
While there might not be any nude pictures of Eva Marie floating around, we do have this picture of the WWE diva wearing a yellow thong and showing her naked ass. This photo shoot was done before she became famous. Chances are, if WWE was not PG, then Vince McMahon would have already sent her to Playboy to do a spread.
March 15, 2014
Torrie Wilson
For those that do not know, there definitely are nude Torrie Wilson photos floating out there. The former WWE diva posted for Playboy, and she showed off her entire body. The nude pictures were even promoted on WWE television shows such as Monday Night Raw and Smackdown.
March 8, 2014
Eva Marie
Since she has been growing in popularity, a lot of fans have been wondering if we will ever see a nude Eva Marie photo shoot. In the past, WWE would not have hesitated to allow her to do a hot spread for Playboy magazine, but since times have changed, the company will not allow her to pose naked or topless for anyone.
January 3, 2014
Eva Marie
Some are under the belief that Eva Marie has done a nude photo shoot for Playboy, but that is not the case. While considered quite hot by many standards, the WWE diva has yet to be asked by the magazine. A lot of the speculations stem from the fact that there is a model named Eva Hilovski, who also goes by Eva Marie at times, who has posed naked several times.
January 2, 2014
Eva Marie

There are rumors floating around that new WWE diva Eva Marie has posed nude before, and that has caused thousands of wrestling fans to scour the internet in search of such naked images. However, it turns out that the confusion stems from the fact that Playboy model Eva Hilovski uses the same name on occasions.

January 1, 2014
Aksana
There are rumors that naked photos of Aksana exists on the internet. While the WWE diva has done a lot of modeling shoots before becoming a professional wrestler, none of them are nude ones. She also has never done a spread for Playboy or any other magazines.

"Sitting in CLT airport at 4:42am, thinking about how me vs Masato Tanaka at WrestleCon may very well be the craziest match of my career."

- Kevin Steen

Masato Tanaka
Since it has been a while since he was starring in ECW and since he was never really a regularly featured performer in WWE, many fans have forgotten what entrance music Masato Tanaka utilized. In this video, you can hear the theme song that he utilized in ECW while he was feuding with Mike Awesome.

Bobby Lashley
Karl Etherington was undefeated and the British heavyweight champion when he walked into Kansas Star Arena in Mulvane last night. By the time that Bellator 130 had ended, however, his unblemished record was no more. About 90 seconds into the fight, Etherington slipped on a judo throw, so Bobby Lashley was able to capitalize and land enough punches to get the referee to stop the match.
October 25, 2014
Undertaker
Good news for wrestling fans who hope that the Undertaker remains in the industry in some sort of capacity after retirement. The legendary performer has agreed to work as an adviser for the WWE developmental program. He will make the occasional trip to the WWE Performance Center and provide evaluations and advice to the performers and the trainers.
October 24, 2014
Alberto Del Rio
WWE is looking for a new social media manager. While that normally would not generate much interest, it does so here in this case because the previous guy that held the spot was Cody Barbierri, the allegedly racist employee that played a huge part in the controversial Alberto Del Rio release earlier in the year. No word yet on whether or not the release is related to the incident, but more on the story should be revealed in the upcoming days and weeks.
October 24, 2014
Christian
There is going to be another Edge and Christian reunion in the near future, but unfortunately for WWE fans, it will not be taking place inside of a wrestling ring. On the November 28 episode of Haven, Christian will be making a guest appearance on the show. His character will be a close friend of Dwight, the character portrayed by Edge.
October 23, 2014
John Cena
Even though he could possibly still be with WWE for the next several years, John Cena is now taking steps to ensure that he will have income after his wrestling days are over. The former heavyweight champion has partnered up with Leftfield Pictures, and they are going to be producing a variety of reality television shows to shop to the networks. Leftfield Pictures has had much success with Pawn Stars.
October 22, 2014
Batista
While he has long maintained that he has no desires to leave WWE for Hollywood, John Cena is publicly expressing interest in expanding his horizons. The former heavyweight champion wants to show the audience that he can do comedic roles. The belief is that he might have been influenced by the massive success of the Rock and Batista over the last couple of years.
October 22, 2014
Dean Ambrose
Rumors are floating around that Randy Orton suffered a serious injury during the handicap street fight tag team match on Monday Night Raw. It took place early in the match when Dean Ambrose dove out of the ring and on to the heels. Orton reportedly told the trainer that the ruptured disc in his back was messed up. No word yet on whether or not he can work Hell in a Cell 2014, but as a precaution, WWE kept Orton from working Smackdown this week.
October 22, 2014
Vince McMahon
Bad news for Vince McMahon today. He lost some more money, as WWE stocks was hit with quite the drop. The belief is that investors are jumping ship before quarterly results are announced at the end of October. Many are under the impression that the company will not reach their goal of breaking a million subscribers for the WWE Network. Another major drop could take place when the announcement is made.
October 22, 2014
Jeff Jarrett
If Jeff Jarrett wants Global Force Wrestling to do well right off the bat, then he's going to need some familiar faces on the show. Though he has been gone from WWE for quite some time now, John Morrison remains a familiar face with wrestling fans. The two of them are booked for a match against one another at an independent wrestling show on December 6, and Morrison has acknowledged that they will be discussing some business backstage.
October 22, 2014
Dixie Carter
At the end of the year, the long businesss relationship between TNA and Spike will be coming to an end. Dixie Carter, however, has only filmed enough episodes of Impact Wrestling to last until the middle of November. Reports have surfaced that the company will simply rely on recap shows during the final month of the year, as they make the transition to what hopefully will be a new home.
October 22, 2014
Jeff Jarrett
Some interesting things are brewing in the wrestling industry. Jeff Jarrett continues to make moves behind the scenes to launch Global Force Wrestling. There is a pay per view coming up in January, but he is reportedly working on something big before then. Jarrett was spotted at the office of Joe Koff, who happens to be the Chief Operating Officer of ROH.
October 22, 2014
AJ Lee
There are reports floating around right now that the reason why AJ Lee was not chosen to be a cast member on Total Divas is because she is married to CM Punk. However, she has repeatedly stated in the past that she was not interested in doing a reality television show. She enjoys her privacy and prefers to focus on being a wrestler. Management recently added Alicia Fox and Paige to the series.
October 21, 2014
John Cena
Initially, WWE felt that a match between John Cena and Randy Orton at Hell in a Cell 2014 was going to be able to sell itself. Management reportedly noticed the lack of interest and a good amount of complaint from fans, so they made the decision to change things up. The winner now gets a shot at the heavyweight championship, which should pique interest from more fans.
October 21, 2014
Rock
As many of you already know, the Rock is in Japan to promote the Hercules movie that he stars in. While there, he decided to have dinner with a very famous individual. The former WWE star dined with Mark Zuckerberg, the genius behind Facebook. Rock noted that he was quite grateful towards social media because it has enabled him to connect with fans in a very intimate way.
October 21, 2014
Vince McMahon
Chalk up another victory for Vince McMahon and his quest to draw in a younger audience. The company has reached a deal with Nickelodeon. The network will start airing episodes of Slam City this week. For those that are not aware, it is a cartoon based on the WWE performers getting jobs outside of wrestling. It had previously been airing solely on the WWE Network, but it is now available on television.
October 21, 2014
Cameron
Since Nikki Bella and Cameron have confirmed it publicly, the widespread belief among fans is that the cast member of Total Divas are not allowed to hold a championship in WWE. Stephanie McMahon, however, is disputing that rumor. During a recent interview, she flat out denied it when asked about the rumor. McMahon stated that it would be great for one of the cast members to hold the belt because it would drive more attention to the story.
October 21, 2014
Justin Roberts
When news broke that Justin Roberts had been given a release by WWE, fans naturally speculated as to who would replace him in the role. Initially, the belief was that Lilian Garcia would be remaining on Smackdown because it suits her schedule more, but it has now been revealed that she will be making a return to Monday Night Raw. Some are saying that the move will be temporary until WWE can find someone who can fill the position permanently.
October 20, 2014
Alicia Fox
The expanding cast of Total Divas will include Alicia Fox next season. WWE has decided to include as many of their female performers as possible on the show, and Alicia was quite willing to sign up for the reality television show. For a lot of the girls, the hope is that the extra exposure will help them build up their name value for when they eventually leave the company and pursue other things.
October 20, 2014
Paige
In an attempt to draw in even more viewers, the producers of Total Divas and WWE have decided to add new faces to the show. Paige was chosen to be one of the two cast additions. She is young, has a different look, is from England and has already been the Divas champion. Speculations are that the show will portray her as the new girl being given preferential treatment from management.
October 20, 2014
Mickie James
It has now been revealed that Mickie James is interested in making a return to WWE. She recently took several months off from the independent wrestling circuit to give birth to a child. Mickie has expressed interest in the past in returning to the company, but management reportedly did not pursue the move very aggressively. No word yet on how much interest their is from WWE at the moment.
