African American Black Female Wrestlers

Historically, professional wrestling has been a realm dominated by a select few. However, the last few years have witnessed a refreshing shift, with a surge of talented African American black female wrestlers making their mark. Traditionally, the domain of professional wrestling has been predominantly governed by a limited group of individuals. Nevertheless, in recent years, there has been a revitalizing transformation. A notable surge of exceptionally skilled African American black female wrestlers has emerged, leaving an indelible impact on the landscape of professional wrestling. This shift signifies a departure from historical norms, ushering in a new era where diversity and talent intersect to redefine the dynamics of the sport.

Jacqueline’s exceptional skills and charisma have made her an icon in the wrestling world. Her journey from overcoming challenges to achieving success serves as a beacon of inspiration for aspiring wrestlers and fans alike. Her legacy extends beyond the ring, influencing the landscape of black female wrestlers and showcasing the undeniable impact of black female athletes.

In her last appearance, Jackie lost the title back to Chavo at WWE Judgment Day. Jackie had a couple of runs in TNA, usually aligned with James Storm, before retiring. Along with her in ring achievements, she is also a black belt in Tae Kwan Do. She was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2016.

Sasha Banks

An independent wrestler out of Boston, Banks worked her way through various promotions before finally getting a foot in the door in WWE NXT. Eventually, the quiet but talented young woman found her voice, and The Boss was born. Since then, Banks hasn’t looked back for a second, though she turned plenty of heads throughout her astounding rise to dominance as one of Full Sail’s “Four Horsewomen.”

The trailblazing continued past NXT when Banks helped usher in a new era of competition on the Raw roster during the Women’s Evolution. Since then, the ultra-confident Banks made history at every turn, competing in the first ever Women’s WWE Iron Man, Hell in a Cell, Royal Rumble and Elimination Chamber Matches, all while capturing multiple Raw Women’s Titles and teaming with Bayley to become the first WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions.

Ember Moon

Ember Moon’s rapid ascension up the ranks of WWE is owed to the three attributes that she says define her best: Skill, honor and heart. The War Goddess has exemplified each of those since taking WWE by storm.

Born in Garland, Texas, Moon first fell in love with sports-entertainment thanks to her grandfather’s influence. Together, they bonded over watching Dallas’ favorite sons, The Von Erichs, battle nefarious black hats from the famed Sportatorium, and from there, Moon’s path to the ring was never in question. 

Mentored by WWE Hall of Famer Booker T, Moon quickly emerged as a dynamic competitor between the ropes. She fought tirelessly to earn a spot in WWE NXT, and by the time she debuted in August 2016 at TakeOver: Brooklyn II, it was clear Moon was already able to hang with the world’s most elite Superstars. The War Goddess was the first woman to pose a legitimate challenge to the then-undefeated Asuka, with Moon’s breathtaking signature move, the Eclipse, even appearing to create self-doubt in The Empress of Tomorrow.



As the second-highest cause of whiplash behind car accidents, Naomi first turned heads as a dancer for the NBA’s Orlando Magic and hip-hop stars like Flo Rida. These talents would take her around the world, as Naomi performed everywhere from North Korea to Indonesia.

Despite all that success, Naomi’s dance steps couldn’t satisfy her competitive spirit, which is how she found herself as a contestant on WWE NXT. Despite being eliminated in the final week of her season, Naomi soon launched into orbit around Planet Funk, as one half of The Funkadactyls. From there, she broke out on her own, determined to take WWE by storm.

The Total Divas star has since had a series of remarkable runs as both fan favorite and corner cutting villain, doggedly pursuing the Divas Championship for the better part of a year and cementing her status as a ring general by heading up the attitude filled Team B.A.D. of Tamina and Sasha Banks during the Women’s Evolution.

Nia Jax

There’s one thing that’s painfully clear when someone steps in the ring with Nia Jax: She’s not like most women.

The 6-foot-tall Jax towered over other women for as long as she can recall. She was kicked out of activities like karate, kickboxing and judo as a child because someone always ended up getting hurt at her hands. A cousin of The Rock, she immediately blew away all other Superstars in terms of power upon her arrival at the WWE Performance Center and was handing out punishment in an NXT ring in no time.

The Irresistible Force carried that power with her to Raw in 2016 and immediately established herself as a juggernaut, going on to capture her first championship gold at WrestleMania 34 when she defeated Alexa Bliss for the Raw Women’s Title. After that, Jax found tag team success as well with an unlikely partner in Shayna Baszler, winning the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championship, proving her theme song true that her path to victory was infinite, and her destiny was a force of greatness.

After time away from WWE, the dominant Jax suddenly reemerged on Monday Night Raw, attacking Raquel Rodriguez and costing her a Women’s World Title Match against titleholder Rhea Ripley. As the smoke cleared, Jax entered the ring to lay waste to The Eradicator as well with a vicious post match assault.
