Women of professional wrestling

With the third season of WWE's "Total Divas" about to premiere, we take a look at how women have made their mark in the world of professional wrestling, from inside the squared circle to the boardroom and charitable endeavors. Past WWE Divas like Trish Stratus and Lita have earned Hall of Fame distinction. Female grapplers from the past like Mae Young and the Fabulous Moolah have entertained crowds into their 70s and 80s. Businesswomen like Linda McMahon, Stephanie McMahon and Jane Geddes have found success on the executive level. The likes of Nikki and Brie Bella have reached out past the ring into stardom in the reality show genre.
