9. Naomi, WWE Smackdown Women’s Champion
2nd Reign; 2 April 2017
Let me just say that I am not much of a Naomi fan. However, that should not disqualify her from an objective discussion such as this. Her victory at Wrestlemania this year was very well-received, and she continues to not only grow, but GLOW as Smackdown Women’s Champion.
While Naomi‘s entrance and look are her strongest assets, she has nonetheless captured the imagination of a large portion of the WWE Universe. Her short program with Lana certainly didn’t score her any points, but come SummerSlam, she will have her biggest opportunity yet: a title defense against Women’s division matriarch, Natalya. Look for this match to make waves in a couple Sundays.
