My wife thinks wrestling and wrestlers are gross, but back during his first run she said Drew Mc was a handsome man. She also says Orton has a great body. Her all-time fave is Cesaro.

I briefly had a roomie who was insanely homophobic, and I loved mentioning that Justin Gabriel was hot and had a sweet ass. Number one, it's true; and number two because he'd flip out and get all flustered and mad at me. 😀
My ex wife thought Rick Rude was sexy and when she first went to an ROH show with me, she told me she thought CM Punk was hot. And this was blond hair and basketball shorts Punk.

I was watching some Mid-Atlantic the other day and my wife was like "is this the one with the really ugly guy." After talking through it with her I realized she was talking about Kerry Von Erich. She thinks Kerry is fucking ugly.

Well, I thought he had a horse kinda face. And he looked dumb as fuck too. I guess if you like the dumb jock style, it can pass for attractive, but really… Abs and other muscles don't do the trick unless you have no brain either.

He's kind of the Sarah Jessica Parker of wrestlers.

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."

 
Lana disagrees.

 
Look, as a straight guy who has never seen Rusev in person, I'm clearly more qualified to judge his looks than his wife!
 

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.

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.


Fair enough, as I feel the same way about Torrie Wilson - drop dead gorgeous but comes across as such a useless, brainless bimbo with nothing upstairs that it's impossible for me to find her attractive.

Look guys, what we really need to get to the bottom of is what C.S. thinks about Torrie Wilson.

It's simple: She's drop dead gorgeous, but also comes across as drop dead dumb. The latter doesn't appeal to me.

Same as KawadaSmiles not finding Finn Balor handsome because he's bland in the ring.

Can you please hop off the fence and tell us your feelings on Torrie already?

Is "bland in the ring" is code for "I can't stop looking at his package?" Cause if so, I agree. What Irish curse? Finn Balor, destroyer of stereotypes.

He's not working spots around his hog, can't take him seriously

So, since I always wanted to ask this... is it true Giant Baba was considered really handsome back in the day?

I'm wondering which classic wrestlers of the 50s 60s and 70s might have been considered handsome in their day.

I also really liked Tori, Ivory and Victoria circa 2000-2002. 

 

Agree fully about Ivory from pretty much the first moment I saw her on WWF TV.  Of the current WWE women it's all about Becky and Sonya for me (along with Dakota in NXT).

 

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

 

I barely watch MMA these days, but there's something about Rose Namajunas since she shaved her head.  I always thought Joanne Calderwood was super cute too.

Classic Baba picture. 

 

Harley Race was ruggedly handsome I would guess.

I thought you were going in a totally different direction with that destroyer of.

I'd say Jack Brisco looks handsome.

YES! Sonya is amazing! I might be one of her biggest fans, and legit her growth as a wrestler is impressive. Shame they threw her to Ronda with no fanfare.

Giant Baba looks like a damn alien from another world.

Ruggedly handsome? I love Orndorff but that might be a stretch.

Agreed as well, love Sonya, maybe my second fav behind Bliss.
