The women wrestlers have also been represented albeit not as much as their male counterparts. There have been only ten former female wrestlers inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame with Fabulous Moolah being the first woman inductee in 1995.
The WWE women wrestlers have come a long way in establishing themselves as WWE Superstars. Their popularity has resulted in various cross-promotions with other brands featuring WWE Divas.

Melina made her first Raw appearance on November 29, 2004, to host a Diva lingerie fashion show and made her official debut in WWE as manager of MNM, on April 14, 2005, on Smackdown! She won her first WWE Women's Championship when she defeated Mickey James On February 19, 2007. She last competed in a WWE ring on August 1, 2011, in a #1 contender's battle royal.
