She's a professional wrestler in the WWE.  Now, before anyone starts in and says she's not a real athlete; save your breath.  This woman is beyond strong and athletic.  She's educated, holding a degree in Criminal Justice and Public Relations, so she's got the brains to go with the brawn.  Even though she'd kick my rear end, I'd gladly crawl in the ring with this WWE Diva.

Aneta Florczyk is recognized as the strongest woman in the world.  She has won multiple 'World's Strongest' competitions during her career.  She sure cleans up nicely though.  I'm a fairly strong guy, a little above average I'd guess for my height and weight, but this woman would snap me in half like a twig if she wanted to.
