The word pioneer is thrown around a lot in wrestling, and there are certain Superstars who have had the title bestowed upon them.

Vince McMahon is seen as a pioneer of promoting, whilst names like Steve Austin and The Rock are seen as pioneers of the Attitude Era.

And though these men deserve plenty of accolades, there are those who have flown under the radar.

These Superstars changed wrestling forever, and have helped bring WWE to where it is today, though you wouldn't know it according to the company.

Here are five WWE Superstars who deserve way more credit than they're given.


#5: Ivory deserved the glow of the spotlight

Ivory's wrestling ability and work in the RTC made her a fantastic heel.

In the annals of WWE history, its stars like Trish Stratus and Lita who are seen as the original pioneers of the women’s revolution.

Both Superstars have no doubt earned their Hall of Fame status, with the duo being part of the first female main event in RAW history

However, it is obvious that Ivory, who has never been showcased by the company as much as Trish and Lita, deserves the spotlight just as much.

Debuting in 1999, Ivory started as just another Diva in the Locker room, before reaching her peak in the Right to Censor.

As part of the group, she became the opposite of what fans wanted from her, promoting abstinence at a time where the company were focussed on looks.

Establishing herself as their top female heel, Ivory backed up her bravado, becoming the best female wrestler of the time, even when she was sadly overlooked.

In an era where blonde hair was far more important than actual wrestling skill, Ivory stood out as a veteran talent who could both talk and grapple, leading to three turns as WWE Women’s Champion.

Despite being inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2018, it is a real shame that such a pioneering woman is often overlooked, and whilst others pushed to give Divas a Chance in 2015, it was Ivory who aimed to give women a chance.
