Whether they love her as Madison Rayne or Ashley Lane, wrestling fans will be getting together today–that being February 5th, 2014–to wish one of wrestling’s sexiest babes a very happy birthday. We’re talking about real wrestling fans, of course, since those types who only follow the WWE haven’t had the pleasure of seeing this brawling beauty who’s a literal knockout. Not that we don’t adore our WWE Divas. It’s just that we love the ladies of all wrestling franchises.

And while we’re naming names, let’s include Lexi Lane–which is another moniker used by Madison Rayne (and Ashley Lane) during her early days on the independent wrestling circuit. It wasn’t long before Madison was tagged-teamed for stardom, and she signed on with Total Nonstop Action Wrestling in 2009. She quickly became a fan favorite, and is currently marking her fifth straight year as the winner of hte TNA Women’s Knockout Championship. That’s not a beauty contest.
Madison is a real beauty, though. The former homecoming queen and cheerleader didn’t enter wrestling through the usual route, though. Madison Rayne skipped the fitness model work and went straight into the ring after high school–with the Seattle gal brawling her way through the Ohio Championship Wrestling roster. That included some intergender matches. She really brought some attention to the folks at Shimmer Women Athletes group under the name of Ashley Lane, too.
Madison Rayne is pretty much forever associated with TNA, though, and she’s easily the biggest draw. The company has also paid off with landing her a husband in bodybuilder Jesse Cabot. We’d make a joke about him being able to kick our ass, but so could his wife, so let’s go ahead and admire these powerful pics of this riveting wrestler…
