A brassy blonde in the Pam Anderson mode, Trish Stratus was a star of World Wrestling Entertainment, the pro wrestling conglomerate, in the early 2000s. She made her WWE debut under the stage name Trish Stratus in 2000; in the complicated role-playing of pro wrestling she started as a "manager" for male wrestlers. She then turned wrestler herself and won the first of her WWE women's championships in a six-way title match in November of 2001. Stratus became a fast favorite with fans for her habit of appearing in lingerie and for her many soap operatic moments on the WWE show RAW, including romances with WWE impresario Vince McMahon and others. She was named the WWE's "Diva of the Decade" in 2003. She has been featured in photo shoots in Musclemag International, Stuff and Oxygen, among other magazines.

Extra credit: According to the official WWE website, her finishing moves are called Stratusfaction and the Chick Kick... Other female pro wrestlers of the past include Sable and Chyna.
