My wife isn't into any wrestlers.  Either too much ink, too much hair or too roided up.  Said John Cena would have potential if he got rid of the muscles, but apparently not much that I watch works for her.

My wife's favourite is The Rock, and obviously that is one dude whose handsomeness transcends pro wrestling. There is no possible way to reasonably claim that he isn't Movie Star Handsome.

In terms of real life, it was always fun to see the reaction that women had to Zeus when he was in Osaka Pro. He has an undeniable presence in person. There were more than a few drop dead gorgeous women who came to the shows just hoping for a chance to meet him.

Bryan Danielson is small and pale and kind of puppy-dog goofy looking, but I have seen boisterous Indy crowds in Vancouver fall silent when he takes his shirt off. His body iwas truly beautiful up close, in person, in those days. I assume it still is. That he is a kind and genuine person only makes him more attractive.

And, I know this will be a controversial opinion, but I think Tinieblas Jr has the best-looking mask in all of Pro Wrestling.

The Rock had so much work done, though. He actually looked better before all that noise.

An ex thought HBK was better looking in 2006 than 1996. So did my sister. Neither were wrestling fans beyond watching it because I had the remote, so that "HBK is only good looking by wrestling standards" line earlier can be thrown out.

My girlfriend has a thing for the Rock, Rollins, and (most of all) Ambrose.

Weirdest was my mother's preferences. She thought Jericho was one of the cutest guys on all of TV in 1998, which I can see, but then she'd be all about the Undertaker...buy only when he was wearing sunglasses.

I think Kimberly Page is a classic pro wrestling beauty. I also really liked Tori, Ivory and Victoria circa 2000-2002. During the era of Sable and Torrie Wilson, I was really attracted to Nidia. Still am.

Definitely curious what other prominent work he's had that I'm missing.

 

It may be pure envy, but Tanahashi certainly has some terrific hair.  I'd put that on my head any day even if I could never pull it off :) 

 

I think Daniel Bryan was pretty good and normal looking pre-beard.

Goddamn right it is.  Especially when looking in the mirror.

Tanahashi is absolutely one of the most handsome men in all of wrestling. Rush is also incredibly handsome and Naito definitely has that roguish charm about him. Those are probably my top 3.

You are absolutely right. 

 

 

JVK mentioned Ted, and I agree. Might also have the nicest sounding voice in pro-wrestling history, too. Magnum TA in his prime was quite a looker - not so sure how the 'stache stands out in a more modern setting.

 

Also, no one mentioned Ibushi yet? I agree that Tana is this weird, fabulous mix of handsomeness with gorgeous hair, but Ibushi is also himself really cute. 

 

But to me, the best looking guy in professional wrestling today is Dr. Wagner Jr. Just breathtaking.

He looked like a 80's porn actor. Seedy as shit. Plus forcing himself on Baby Doll ("She likes it !") really drove that point home.

 

Rusev is actually quite a good looking guy, as his recent leaner, cleaner look demonstrates.

This thread has officially become "my smark favorite is damn handsome too."

What's next? Kenny Omega being praised as the second coming of George Clooney? :D
 

Finn Balor I can see people saying he's cute and all, but it's just that he's so... bland. He is a very nice guy (of the legit kind I hope) and his interactions with Bayley surely did a lot to get him lots of fans, but in terms of looks I just don't see his charm.

 

He's bland...as a wrestler. Doesn't affect his looks one iota.

 

I'm not a fan of Finn the wrestler either, but he's genuinely good-looking, unlike Ricky Morton or Tommy Rich.

Forgot all about Wagner. He's handsome as hell.

 

Minoru Suzuki in his younger days was pretty good-looking as well.

My take on that is one's perception of attractiveness goes beyond physical appearance, and depending on how one sees another, a good looking person might end up being average to the eye of the beholder, and vice-versa.

 

While all you say is indeed true, my perception of Finn being really bland "downgrades" his overall attractiveness, you know.

 

Contrast that with my first post in this thread: Ric Flair wasn't exactly beautiful, but he carried himself like really no one else did, and that surely counts for his attractiveness - and I think that also applied to people like HBK and CM Punk. Likewise, Bryan being this wholesome person makes him stand out more amongst others.

 

How would people here rate the Hardy's?

I see the appeal. While I don't think either is particularly good looking, them coming into the Fed being long-haired pretty boys with distinct syle and charisma sure made people take notice. Jeff taking his shirt off to reveal a slim physique always worked (and kinda still does) to make people scream with joy.

My previous post, before the original topic was moved here to this thread...

Yeah. I'm a straight male and everything, but I know PLENTY of chicks (some even non-fans) that have made remarks about Orton's looks.

I attended a house show in 2009 - not long after he reemerged with the sleeved out tats - and there was a whole flock of chicks there, at this non-televised show, with signs and cleavage spilling out of their skin-tight tops in support of Orton.

In 2000 fucking 9. Imagine if he had come along in the Attitude Era. This dude would've slain some strange.

And you're kidding yourself if you think girls didn't love them some HBK back in the day. Plenty of biddies thought he was the bee's fleas back in 97 and even into 98, when he was just popping in all pilled to the gills to do the commissioner gig.

In the broader sense, it's absolutely true that personality - and especially confidence - amplifies that attractiveness. I believe that applies to both men and women in all cases.


I've also heard Ambrose talked about here & there in recent years. Every bit as much as Roman, really.

But Rollins though? Is that a thing, too? Never would've guessed. I realize I'm not the demo or whatever, but the guy looks ratty af.

Agreed + Liz.

Agreed.

+ Sunny in the 90's of course.

If the Karate Hottie was in the WWE and not the UFC, she'd easily be at the top of my list.
