There have been a number of ladies representing professional wrestling who have graced the pages of Playboy magazine including Chyna, Maryese, Sable, Torrie Wilson, Christy Hemme, Kimberly Page, Candice Michelle, Ashley Massaro and Mickie James posed in niche magazine Leg Show. There are also a number of Divas who have posed for websites at various times including Missy Hyatt, Tamara "Sunny" Sytch and April Hunter.
The Playboy issues which featured Wilson, Sable and Chyna increased newsstand sales for the magazine and according to sources Hugh Hefner has reached out to other Divas but most have politely declined.
Some may feel that posing nude is degrading but for many who appear in Playboy, especially athletes or celebrities, the pictorial has helped to elevate or renew their career and at the very least kept them in the public eye.
Of all the adult magazines available Playboy is considered the most refined and least offensive of the lot and not only would the ladies who have made this list possibly benefit, so too would the magazine as well as a number of independent promotions across the country.
Playboy often does a "Women of..." pictorial showcasing the creme de la creme of a particular vocation or sport and offering these Ladies of Professional Wrestling would certainly be a "win-win" for all involved.
