* Ariane (Cameron Lynn) frets over this on an episode of the reality show ''Series/TotalDivas''. She considered getting a boob job, being [[ACupAngst unhappy with her current size]]. She ultimately decided against the surgery because she was afraid it would send a bad message to younger fans.

* WWE's policy actually doesn't mind a Diva having done racy pictures in the past - as long as said Diva discloses them to the company. However the company frowns upon women using Amazon Wish Lists[[note]]A list of bookmarked products that the user wishes to buy; it's often used by female wrestlers to get fans to buy them presents[[/note]] and grooming of male fans. It's said to be up there with public drunken behaviour and drug use.

* Wrestling/TrishStratus did some rather risque photos in her fitness modelling days but toned her shoots down as her wrestling career took off. Likewise her outfits became a little more modest and she repeatedly refused to pose for Playboy. She's said this is because she wants to be remembered for her wrestling, rather than being BestKnownForTheFanservice. She's also said that she can be sexy with her clothes on.

* The face of WWE Wrestling/JohnCena has stated in the past that this is pretty much the sole reason that it would be difficult for him to become a villain. He enjoys the charity work that he does, and it would be difficult for him and the WWE to give it up without a replacement handy. This trope was also the reason there was such a scandal over him getting divorced from his wife. Because Super Cena isn't suppose to have marriage problems like a normal guy.
* Ariane (Cameron Lynn) frets over this on an episode of the reality show ''Series/TotalDivas''. She considered getting a boob job, being [[ACupAngst unhappy with her current size]]. She ultimately decided against the surgery because she was afraid it would send a bad message to younger fans.
* Wrestling/MollyHolly speaks against this trope in her shoot interview. As she was a Christian in real life, many dirtsheets 'reported' that she left WWE because they wanted her to "play the T&A card" - and apparently disliked the Fanservice heavy Diva Search contests. Molly said she wasn't bothered by T&A, describing it as "a part of show business". Fans also seem to forget that she still participated in plenty of bikini shoots during her time in the company.
* Wrestling/{{Lita}} similarly may have had this trope in mind. She said one of the reasons she refused to pose for ''Playboy'' was because she had so many young girls as fans. Indeed many of the next generation of WWE Divas cite Lita as their idol when they were younger and she reportedly would receive so many presents from fans at events that she wouldn't be able to take all them with her -- so she may have had a point. Of course she still had no problem with going out on TV with her thong showing and removing her top during matches so it's likely she wasn't that concerned with purity per se. When she turned heel on TV and became HotterAndSexier (including a live sex celebration on ''Raw'') the majority of fans hated her guts in real life so it wouldn't have mattered what she did.
* In late 2010 WWE signed 7 ft wrestler Isis The Amazon and advertised her for NXT Season 3. When it was found that she had erotic fetish photos online, she was removed from the competition and later released[[note]]Though her release was more likely due to her bitching about this openly to any interviewer who asked[[/note]]. Ironically her replacement {{Wrestling/Kaitlyn}} also had erotic photos online and never faced any backlash from it.
** WWE seem to flip-flop on the issue of racy photos. Other Divas such as Wrestling/MickieJames and Wrestling/CandiceMichelle did softcore porn in the past but it never affected their standing on TV. Mickie especially was pushed as a TokenWholesome during the PG Era (though her character did begin as a PsychoLesbian). Likewise Wrestling/GailKim was rehired during the PG Era, despite having done topless photos for a Korean cell phone company. Eva Marie also worries about it on an episode of ''Series/TotalDivas'' when racy pictures are found from her past.
* Serena Deeb was abruptly released from WWE while in the middle of a red-hot storyline. The reason was because the company was annoyed at her being seen drinking and getting rowdy in public - when she was supposed to be playing a Straight Edge character on TV.
* In their 2012 shoot interview the Wrestling/BellaTwins talked about how scared they were of breaking PG when they first debuted. As Nikki put it, "we were like the G-girls" and said they didn't want to alienate their kid fanbase. Nikki accidentally broke PG when she did some sexy gestures coming out with Miz and [[Wrestling/JohnMorrison Morrison]] (forgetting their entrance was in slow motion) - and was reprimanded by Stephanie. The twins eventually avoided this and became HotterAndSexier after their FaceHeelTurn. Nikki Bella also got breast implants, though it was after they had left WWE.
* WWE Diva Wrestling/AshleyMassaro caused a bit of a scandal in mid-2008 when she was linked with a high quality escort service. Although she was released that year, she still appeared on TV twice after the story broke - and claimed that she had asked for her release to care for her sick daughter. Also the OneSteveLimit may have come into play - as reports surfaced that it could have been a second Ashley Massaro, a Las Vegas based bikini model.

It's said to be up there with public drunken behaviour and drug use.
* It was widely speculated before being flat out stated by Wrestling/TripleH himself that the main reason why Wrestling/{{Chyna}} isn't in the Hall of Fame or asked to do one-off appearances is because of her porn career, rather than her frosty relationship with the [=McMahons=] (especially with Stephanie, Hunter's wife). In fact, many HOF inductees don't have the best relationship with them (i.e. Wrestling/BrunoSammartino), but Chyna is such a train wreck that not even Vince, who is always willing to put aside a grudge for the sake of entertainment, will let her anywhere near the WWE in any capacity.
* Wrestling/KellyKelly may have invoked this in order to get released by the company. She wanted to take a hiatus from wrestling, but the company would not release her. She took part in a rather racy photoshoot for a calendar and put some of the photos up on her website. The office ordered her to take them down (as WWE is PG) but she refused - and they finally released her.
* Wrestling/TrishStratus did some rather risque photos in her fitness modelling days but toned her shoots down as her wrestling career took off.

She's said this is because she wants to be remembered for her wrestling, rather than being BestKnownForTheFanservice. She's also said that she can be sexy with her clothes on.
* Wrestling/StacyKeibler likewise says that she will never pose nude because she wants to "leave some things to the imagination."
* WWE implemented a policy around 2006-2007 stating that no talent under the age of 21 was allowed to be called up to the main roster. This was primarily in response to the antics of both Wrestling/KellyKelly and Kenny Dykstra (19 and 20, respectively), both of whom were avid partyers at the time. While this was before the transition to PG, it nonetheless did no favors for the company's image or their characters on TV. Thus, the policy was to ensure that the talent on the road had the general maturity to rein it in and keep these things in mind.

*** Radcliffe seems to have become one of the defining subversions of this trope. Among those still following his career he's now known as an Indie character actor at least as much as he's known for being Harry. There was virtually no controversy over his role in SwissArmyMan, and he played an outright sociopathic villain in NowYouSeeMe2.

** Heather Menzies (aka Louisa von Trapp) appeared naked in ''{{Playboy}}'''s August 1973 issue and did nude scenes in a couple of B-Movies.
* AlysonHannigan, sweet little Willow Rosenberg from ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'', managed to avoid this when she took on the role of kinky, foul-mouthed Michelle in ''AmericanPie''. Perhaps the fact that Willow herself was allowed to grow up (and come out of the closet) may have had something to do with that.
