Posted by Sasha at 1:18 PM ET

World Wrestling Entertainment is gong full steam ahead with the 5th annual WWE Diva Search to find the latest addition to their roster of "the Sexiest Women on Television." WWE Divas have many roles, including ring announcer, backstage interviewer, all kinds of promotions, and sometimes even wrestler! The woman who wins this year's contest will walk away with a one year contract with the WWE, worth $100,000. (Or $250,000, depending on who you ask.)

Pro Sports Dancers have been well represented in the short history of the Diva Search. Last year's winner, Layla El, was a Miami Heat Dancer for two seasons (2004-2006). This year, thousands of girls entered the competition. Only 8 are left standing, and two of them are former pro sports dancers. Eve Torres was a member of the Los Angeles Clippers Spirit and also danced for the Summer Pro League in Los Angeles.Naomi Kirk is a former Dallas Cowboys Cheerleader and Dallas Mavericks Dancers.* Click here to read about Eve, Naomi, and the other six finalists.

*I can't find a record of Naomi on either squad but I'm still trying to verify it.
