wwe nxt divas, wwe nxt divas name list

WWE started off its revolutionary brand, NXT as a contest-based show way back in 2010, which was totally different than what it is today.

Many might have found NXT quite boring in its initial days, but to me, it was kind of riveting, mainly due to its unique concept of rookies and pros.

Fast forward to 10 years later, it is now an essential part of the company's product and has the best roster ever, that doesn't hesitate to go the extra mile to keep the craze for wrestling alive! 

Alright so, this article's about the gorgeous current WWE NXT Divas, their names and more, who constitute the NXT Women's division of 2020. 

But before you scroll down, let me state a few things. I have sort only the Divas of the NXT and not from the UK's division. We'll first begin with having a look at the top stars of the division, followed by the rest.

Okay, there it begins!

The former Mixed Martial Arts fighter, Shayna Baszler's wrestling career started in 2015 after being trained by former UFC fighter, Josh Barnett.

Baszler finally found her way to the WWE in 2017, after competing mostly for the independent promotions. She made her NXT appearance as a heel, by ambushing Kairi Sane in December 2017.

Now of now, Shayna is a 2 times NXT Women's Champion and has set a record of 416 days straight as champion. She's also the sixth-longest reigning women's champion and has won the award for being the best female competitor of 2019!

Io Shirai a.k.a the "Genius of the Sky" has proved to be the real deal in the business ever since her entry into the World Wrestling Entertainment. 

She was a top female wrestler during her 7-year tenure at World Wonder Ring Stardom, where she attained a long list of accolades, from Championships to MVP award! At NXT, She continues to outshine with the same tenacity and attitude, that distinguishes her from the rest.

With her recently acquired heel gimmick, it's definitely getting interesting to see what's the future of this Japanese warrior.

4. Bianca Belair

The "EST of NXT", Bianca Belair was a great CrossFit competitor before thinking of becoming a WWE Diva. She even appeared on the official site of CrossFit and a few magazines. But a hapless Bianca had to quit her great career due to a rare condition, i.e shifting rib syndrome. 

Nonetheless, She was able to get a WWE Tryout with the assistance of the legendary veteran, Mark Henry. Her very first in-ring match occurred in September of 2016, where she faced Aliyah. 

She had an undefeated streak that lasted for about 367 days. It has made Belair one of the prominent faces of the NXT brand.

5. Candice LeRae

Candice LeRae is unquestionably one of the charismatic and gorgeous NXT divas out there today. But besides that, her athletism and agility inside the squared circle worths appreciation.

She has been blowing the minds of her fans by her astounding moves and high flying ability since her debut in 2017. Apart from WWE, LeRae has wrestled in numerous promotions successfully to win multiple championships.

It is a fact that many of these NXT Divas are doing pretty great compared to some of the main roster divas.

Also, it will be more fascinating to watch when these horsewomen of NXT will be moved either to the red or blue brand!
