Time For The Ladies
A lot of people are living under the false assumption that when a person decides to become a bodybuilder, they will also be competing in bodybuilding competitions until they are retired and done with life. That is a terrible thing to think because lots of folks from the bodybuilding world have moved onto other ventures once their time in that particular sport has concluded. What is going to be following here is a list of three female bodybuilders who crossed over from the world of bodybuilding to the world pf professional wrestling.
Aksana is a lady who entered the world of female professional bodybuilding as a teenager and she found lots of success in the sport. She would transition to the world of pro wrestling a few years ago as a part of Florida Championship Wrestling, a WWE developmental territory. Aksana found success in developmental as an FCW Women’s Champion, but she would not find much success on the WWE roster, she is no longer an active professional wrestler as of this writing.
#2: Nicole Bass
Nicole Bass is a longtime bodybuilding star who found lots of success in pro wrestling, as part of Extreme Championship Wrestling and in the WWE. During her time in ECW, she was part of the Impact Players, with former ECW Heavyweight Champion Justin Credible. She would have a short run in the WWE as the manager of former WWE Women’s Champion Sable and she would make an appearance at WWE Wrestlemania 15.
#3: Chyna/Joanie Laurer
The last of the three women on the last is easily the most accomplished of them all, that woman is former bodybuilder turned wrestler Chyna. Chyna would make lots of history in the WWE as the first woman to both win the WWE Intercontinental Champion and the first woman to compete in the WWE Royal Rumble. Chyna would also become one of the few women to ever compete in the rings of New Japan Pro Wrestling, including a bout with the legendary Masahiro Chono.
Women, whether coming from the world of bodybuilding or from some other profession, have always made a great impact in the world of professional wrestling and these three women are just a few of those ladies who have made an impact, but when it comes to the bodybuilding/pro wrestling crossover, these three women are at the top of the mountain, there are none better.
