* Many women's wrestling fans regard Wrestling/AllJapanWomensProWrestling in early-to-mid 90s as the [[SugarWiki/AwesomeMoments Crowning Era of Awesome]] for women's professional wrestling, with stars such as Wrestling/ManamiToyota, Wrestling/AjaKong, Bull Nakano, Akira Hokuto and Kyoko Inoue at the top of their game, and several contenders for "best women's match of all time" (including Manami Toyota and Toshiyo Yamada's hair vs hair match, Toyota and Kyoko Inoue's 60-minute draw, and Akira Hokuto vs Shinobu Kandori at Dreamslam 1). AJW's 80s era tends to be considered the runner-up, with the Crush Gals (Wrestling/LionessAsuka and Chigusa Nagayo) generating heat comparable to Wrestling/HulkHogan at the same time.
* Pretty much any female who wrestles could be considered this though there are those who are more physical than others.
** Wrestling/{{Chyna}} was really the first proper ActionGirl in WWE at least in the Wrestling/AttitudeEra. She was introduced as a bodyguard for Wrestling/TripleH and actively competed in the men's division, even capturing the Intercontinental title three times. She was also the first woman to compete in the Royal Rumble and King of the Ring tournament and even became number 1 contender to the WWE Championship.
** Wrestling/{{Jacqueline}} was another tough girl in WWE who was known for competing in plenty of intergender matches (she even won her second Women's title from a man, don't ask) and went on to briefly hold the Cruiserweight title.
* Wrestling/{{SHIMMER}} is a dedicated American women's wrestling promotion, emphasising wrestling ability over T&A.
** Many more have now popped up such as [[Wrestling/{{WSU}} Women Superstars Uncensored]] and ''WILD Wrestling''.
* Around 2002-ish Wrestling/{{WWE}} began making their women's division more about athleticism than eye candy and 2003 was definitely the peak of the women's division with the cream of the crop being Wrestling/TrishStratus, Wrestling/{{Lita}}, Nidia, Victoria, Ivory, Wrestling/MollyHolly, [[Wresting/CarleneMoore Jazz]] and Wrestling/GailKim. Sadly this didn't last.
** More recent examples from WWE would be Wrestling/BethPhoenix (has also competed in the Royal Rumble), [[Wrestling/{{LayCool}} Michelle [=McCool=]]], [[Wrestling/NatalyaNeidheart Natalya]], Wrestling/GailKim again, Mickie James, Melina Perez, [[Wrestling/{{LayCool}} Layla]], Wrestling/AliciaFox, Wrestling/EveTorres, Wrestling/AJLee and Wrestling/Kaitlyn.
** The NXT Women's division is a highly praised part of the programme, boasting kickass girls such as {{Wrestling/Paige}}, Summer Rae, Emma, Bayley, Sasha Banks and Charlotte.
