Nidia (Nidia Guenard) 2001-2004

  • Ensemble Darkhorse: Gail Kim has said that she thought her best WWE matches were the ones she had on Heat against Nidia. Gail Kim is a multiple time champion in both WWE and in TNA. Nidia never held a title in WWE or anywhere else. That should tell you something.

Queen Sharmell (Sharmell Sullivan-Huffman) 2001, 2005-2007, 2013

Francine (Francine Fournier) 2006

Miss Jackie Gayda (Jacquelyn Gayda-Haas) 2002-2005, 2009

  • Never Live It Down: "That Jackie Gayda Match", an infamous mixed tag match where Jackie and Chris Nowinski faced Bradshaw and Trish Stratus. It was a complete botchfest and permanently stained Jackie's reputation even though she never had a match that bad again.

Candice Michelle (Candice Michelle Beckman-Ehrlich) 2004–2009

Michelle McCool (Michelle Leigh Callaway, née McCool) 2004-2011

Melina (Melina Nava Perez) 2004-2011

Beth Phoenix (Elizabeth Kocanski Carolan) 2006-2012

Eve Torres (Eve Torres Gracie, born Eve Marie Torres) 2007-2013

Krissy Vaine (Kristin Eubanks) 2007

  • Big-Lipped Alligator Moment: Her debut attacking Torrie Wilson on Smackdown. Of course it was meant to go much further but Krissy abruptly asked for her release two weeks later.
  • Fashion-Victim Villain: A famous example among Diva fans. She had been getting an outfit made for her eventual debut but it was only half-finished when she got the call. This is the outfit in question. To her credit, she hates the thing too, saying she looked like a "friggin' Christmas clown."
  • WTH, Costuming Department?: Her aforementioned ghastly outfit. Especially glaring because when she came backstage, they told her they had wanted her to wear street clothes. She had walked around for an hour backstage wearing the outfit and nobody had said anything.

Dana Brooke (Ashley Mae Sebera) 2016-

Carmella (Leah Van Dale) 2016-

Sarah Logan (Sarah Bridges) 2017-

  • Memetic Mutation: Her thick Southern accent has given birth to such a gem as "gay meat".

Liv Morgan (Gionna Daddio) 2017-

Mandy Rose (Amanda Saccomanno) 2017-

  • Rescued from the Scrappy Heap: Amanda wasn't very well-liked by fans during her appearances on Tough Enough due to being yet another blonde model with no experience, calling Sara Lee a "ring rat" (though it was later revealed to be Kayfabe) and being an Elimination Houdini that was favored by The Miz solely for her looks despite often placing last in fan votes, resulting in her being negatively compared to Eva Marie. Once she started appearing on NXT TV, she gained some supporters because A) she actually seems serious about wrestling since she spent over a year working NXT house shows to improve her ability and B) while she's by no means amazing, she can already wrestle circles around the woman she's often compared to.
  • Unexpected Character: Considering that she hadn't appeared on NXT TV in well over a year, few expected her to be called up to the main roster, along with Sonya Deville to be the lackeys of a returning Paige.
