Who’s the redhead who can make Christina Hendricks as a knock-off? That would be the stunning Christy Hemme, who’s been wow’ing wresting fans ever since she showed up as a WWE Diva in 2004. Christy won the televised Diva Search competition. It wasn’t one of the WWE’s more shocking moments. Christy Hemme was a real natural, with the stacked babe having learned how to strut her stuff in her early days as a burlesque dancer. She knew how to handle big brutes, too. Her burlesque troupe was particularly popular with the biker crowd. Christy had also done some modeling, of course, and is yet another of the famous alumni who’ve waited tables at Hooters.
But a dame like Christy Hemme–who’s a biker herself–really fit into the world of wrestling. She started out in 2004 with a legendary Lingerie Pillow Fight where she lived out the fantasy of a lot of guys by pinning Diva Search runner-up Carmella DeCesare. She had worse luck going up against Trish Stratus–who commited the ultimate sin of desecrating the April, 2005 issue of Playboy that featured Christy. Everybody won when Christy later defeated the villainous Melina in a Bra & Panties match–although that rivalry would continue for a while. (There’s no rivalry, incidentally, in also checking out our birthday tributes to wrestling gals like Karen Jarrett , Kaitlyn and Rosa Mendes.)
Christy left the WWE in 2005, and it was pretty difficult to believe the official story that the organization just couldn’t find story lines for her. It’s a lot more believable that a gal like Christy insisted on performing by her own high standards. She moved on to Total Nonstop Action Wrestling, and quickly became one of TNA’s most exciting stars. Memorable bouts there included Chrissy going up against Traci Brooks in a Battle of the Playboy Models. Hemme wrapped up her TNA career in 2011, but we’re sure wrapped up in her career on the independent circuit. We’re also hoping that Christy will concentrate more on her musical career. She sounded as good as she looked when walking out to her own anthem performed by her band HEMME.
We’re keeping up with her via Twitter, of course, but we know that some guys need to catch up with Christy. Start by celebrating her 33rd birthday with a slammin’ selection of pics that celebrate Christy’s wild beauty. Did we mention that Christy invented the Flying Firecrotch Guillotine? You’ll like her other moves, too…
