Honestly…can you imagine anyone else in the industry being #1? “The Ravishing Russian” is, quite frankly, the very example of what female perfection should be: she’s drop-dead gorgeous, she’s personable, she’s athletic and tough, and is a university graduate. Lana is not only perfect within the confines of the WWE, but is also very entertaining from an acting standpoint with featured roles in Total Divas, both Pitch Perfect movies, and WWE’s Interrogation alongside Edge. She loves the camera, loves to wear bikinis, and it married to one of the most “beastly nerds” you can imagine with “The Bulgarian Brute” Rusev. Top to bottom, she is the best of the best from 2016…without question.
Born Catherine “C.J.” Perry, the WWE Diva now known as “The Ravishing Russian” Lana has been a huge impact in a relatively short period of time. She signed with WWE in mid-2013 and made her NXT debut in October. She appeared on WWE television in January 2014 and has been a heat magnet (for more than one reason) ever since.
I realize that this pick is a bit of a stretch since, y’know, Lana has never wrestled and is currently a manager, a trained actress, and a singer…so I do not expect her to be wrestling any time soon. But you can’t deny her incredible beauty and she deserves to be on this list. Having been raised in Latvia, she speaks fluent Russian and is dating the person she is managing on television, Rusev.
TRIVIA NOTE: Lana has appeared in the movies Pitch Perfect and Pitch Perfect 2, was a spokesmodel for Red Bull, and was a member of the girl group No Means Yes. She also just wrapped up filming a WWE Films production with Adam “Edge” Copeland called Interrogation.
