While many of Diva Search’s contestants did not have successful WWE careers, a few have appeared in famous movies and TV shows.
In the early 2000s, WWE launched a talent competition called Diva Search. It aimed to find new female talent to join the WWE Women’s Division. The competition was held six times between 2003 and 2013.
In addition to the winners, WWE has also signed several other Diva Search contenders. Some of them have accomplished a lot more in WWE than those who came out on top. Others, however, were unable to succeed in the world of professional wrestling and pursued other careers, including acting.
Here are five WWE Diva Search contestants who have appeared in famous movies / TV shows.
