John Laurinaitis saw her in a bikini catalog and contacted her modeling agency about hiring her and Victoria Crawford. Barbie signed ...

aka Kelly Kelly!!! With some method acting training, she could do some major damage in Hollywood. For instance, I could see her as 1 of 3 comic book superheroes: Supergirl (depending on how tall the character is supposed to be), Black Canary, or Meggan (of Excalibur)!!!

She'd make a good villianess, a biker chick, a cop, or a sexy demon!!!

9. Layla El

Actress | WWE NXT

Layla, who was born and raised in London, England continues to make her mark in the United States and display her versatility as a performer and entertainer. This rising star is a former cruise ship dancer. She is also a member of NBA's Best Dance Squad for the 2005-2006 season - The Miami Heat ...

With her look, she'd be right for almost any role. The only thing that might get in the way, is her British accent!!

Stephanie Marie McMahon was born in Hartford, Connecticut, USA on the 24th September, 1976, the youngest daughter of Vince McMahon and Linda McMahon.
