Although many Diva Search contestants did not have a successful career in WWE, a few appeared in famous movies and TV shows.
In the early 2000s, WWE started a talent competition called the Diva Search. It aimed at finding new female talents to join the WWE women's division. The competition was held six times between 2003 and 2013.
In addition to the winners, WWE also signed several other Diva Search contestants. Some of them achieved much more in WWE than those who came out on top. Others, however, could not make it in the pro wrestling business and pursued other careers, including acting.
Here are five WWE Diva Search contestants who have appeared in famous movies/TV Shows.
