Their list of top 500 is always one that is a fun debate and an honor for any young man in the world of professional wrestling to be a part of.

Recently the folks at PWI unveiled their list of the top 50 women’s wrestlers and among it are some of the top stars in women’s wrestling today. We will not give you the full list but here are some of the names that our fans may recognize:

Veda Scott

Past 1495 Sports Guest Amber O’Neal

Mia Yim

Alicia Fox

Tamina Snuka

Both Nikki and Brie Bella


Brooke Tessmacher


Taryn Terrell


Velvet Sky

AJ Lee


Gail Kim


Mickie James

Coming in at Number One is Cheerleader Melissa who was known as Alissa Flash and Raisha Saeed in her time with Total Nonstop Action Wrestling.

Fans in New York and of Family Wrestling Entertainment (FWE Wrestling) had the chance to see Cheerleader Melissa as she was one of six participants in the Women’s Open, which determined the number 1 contender for the FWE Women’s Championship.

Interestingly enough in the fun debate aspect the three ladies that are involved in the current FWE Women’s Championship scene were not listed in the PWI Female 50, in Angelina Love, Ivelisse Velez and Maria Kanellis.

From what we heard the PWI makes the list based on those who wrestle on a more frequent basis, but at the same time those three and many others do have an argument for future listings in the magazine.

For those who wish to pick up their copy of the PWI Issue that has the top 50 Females should do so by clicking the link below:


It must have been a tough task to try to decide the top 50, maybe sometime in the future the magazine will consider maybe going to the top 100, but as always names are always left out and there in again is the fun debate aspect to listings such as the PWI Female 50.

Here is to all who are listed, and congrats to Cheerleader Melissa on her #1 ranking.
