     Rock N Wrestling Era (1984-1993) 

Jumping Bomb Angels - Noriyo Tateno (立野 記代), Itsuki Yamazaki (山崎五紀) 1987-1988

     New Generation Era (1993-1997) 

Marlena/Terri Runnels (Terry Lynne Boatright Runnels) 1996-2004

  • Ensemble Darkhorse: Manager, commentator, interviewer...she seemed to fit into just about any role WWE gave her. See Guilty Pleasure below.
  • Funny Moments: She could be very funny when given the chance. A sampling.
    • From the December 29, 2001 episode of WWF Excess, the weekend recap show she co-hosted with Jonathan Coachman, asking The Big Show about his parodies of different wrestlers.
    Terri: "Do you do Goldust?"
    The Big Show: "No, I don't do Goldust."
    Terri: "Neither do I, anymore."
    • In the mic battle on Raw which set up her Catfight match against the Kat for WrestleMania 2000, she said that it would be "Whore-ible" if the Kat didn't get to be at WrestleMania since it is "the best opportunity for exposure, and if it's exposure you want honey, then exposure you will get." She then ripped open the Kat's shirt, revealing her bra.
  • Guilty Pleasure: Her feud with the Kat. No, it wasn't going to produce anything resembling "good" matches, but that's OK, because that wasn't its role. Pure T&A silliness, but it served its purpose all the same.
  • Les Yay: In 1996, with Goldust's orientation still unconfirmed, WWE seemed to be subtly suggesting the possibility of Marlena being interested in Sable, but it never went anywhere.

     Attitude Era (1997-2001) 

Miss Kitty/The Kat (Stacy Carter) 1999-2001

Mae Young (Johnnie Mae Young) 1999-2000, 2003-

     InVasion Era 2001 

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.

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

  • One-Scene Wonder: She only appeared on one Divas DVD, 2002's WWF Divas Tropical Pleasures.

     Brand Extension Era (2002-2011) 

Dawn Marie (Dawn Marie Psaltis) 2002-2005

Jillian Hall (Jillian Faye Fletcher) 2005-2010

Maria (Maria Louise Kanellis) 2004-2010

Ashley Massaro 2005-2008

  • Best Known for the Fanservice: Aside from her Playboy cover getting her a Mania match, what else is she remembered for?
  • Rescued from the Scrappy Heap: Quite the reverse actually. She had been popular with fans, winning the Diva Search because she expressed a desire to wrestle. However years of disastrous performances and constant injuries turned many against her.

Maxine (Karlee Perez) 2010-2012

  • Ensemble Darkhorse: Is very popular with Diva fans on the internet who love her heel character.
  • Fashion-Victim Villain: Just take a look at the ice dancer costume she was wearing in her first match.

Naomi (Trinity McCray) 2010-

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.

     WWE Inc. Era (2011-Present) 

Cameron (Ariane Andrew) 2011-

Eva Marie (Natalie Nelson) 2013-

  • The Scrappy / X-Pac Heat: One of the newest targets of the IWC's vitriol, mainly because of her introduction to the main roster from a reality show as opposed to through the 'traditional' route of paying her dues in NXT - especially since she was promoted to the main roster over much more polished and deserving prospects just to shill a TV show hardly anyone cares about.

Summer Rae (Danielle Moinet) 2013-
