SEX sells. And WWE know it.
Over the years the wrestling company have kept fans entertained with a number of risque X-rated scenes.
Some have lived long in the memory of supporters, with few forgetting THAT scene involving Edge and Lita in the middle of the ring.
Here SunSport takes a look at WWE's top 10 X-rated moments.
1. EDGE AND LITA'S 'LIVE SEX CELEBRATION'
Edge proved he truly is the Rated-R Superstar in January 2006 as he celebrated his WWE Championship victory over John Cena with his partner Lita.
Rubbing his success in the face of Cena's loyal supporters, he put on a show for the cameras – and his girlfriend – in a bed that was placed in the middle of the ring.
Mood lighting set the occasion with Edge cuddling his title as Lita positioned herself under the sheets.
Ric Flair stopped their shenanigans as he challenged the Canadian, with Cena then getting involved, before he had a sneaky peak at Lita under the covers.
2. MICKIE JAMES' BANNED GESTURE
James managed to anger Vince McMahon at WrestleMania 22 after she beat Trish Status – who she developed strong feelings for on screen.
After winning the WWE Women's Championship, she made a provocative ad-libbed gesture towards the camera, which McMahon furiously ordered to be edited out.
Commenting on the incident, James told Wrestlecast: "I came back through the curtain and Vince was really mad. In the moment it had seemed amazing to me. I thought 'Vince will love this'.
"'Crass' was the word I got. He didn't like it at all. He told me 'We're going to have to go back and edit that out. Do you know how much time (this will take)?'"
3. DAWN MARIE AND TORRIE WILSON'S HOTEL VIDEO
The two Divas were seen in a steamy scene at a hotel room ahead of Armageddon 2002 where Torrie was being fed strawberries by Dawn.
After they were shown to be kissing – much to the delight of the roaring fans in attendance – Torrie's father (who married Dawn on SmackDown a few weeks after) stopped the clip before anything else happened.
4. KISS MY A** CLUB
William Regal was the first member of the 'Kiss my a**' club as McMahon forced him to plant a smooch on his bottom to keep his job on Raw in 2001.
Regal was made to atone for siding with the WCW and ECW, and after being made to put on chapstick, he pecked McMahon's behind – with the segment nominated in the “best on-screen romance” category at that year's Slammy Awards.
Over the next seven years, Shawn Michaels, Hornswoggle, Jim Ross, Mick Foley and even Shane McMahon joined Regal in the exclusive club.
5. KELLY KELLY'S STRIP TEASE
The American Diva became a huge hit with fans thanks to her strip tease segment – with McMahon teaching her how to pull off her signature moves.
Commenting on how it came about, she said: "Paul Heyman called me and said we have this idea and it’s this gimmick and you’re gonna come out and you’re gonna do this strip-tease and then your jealous boyfriend is gonna come out and wrap you in a towel.
“Vince is like ‘It’ll be fine, I’ll teach you the moves’. I was like ‘well, whatever I have to do get my foot in the door.’
“I’m like sitting there and I’m watching Vince McMahon, who I watched when I was 13 years old and I just idolised, and he’s got a chair and he swings his jacket around.”
Triple H, Michaels, Chyna and Rick Rude quickly became one of the most controversial teams on WWEwith the group known for their double entendres.
Jokes were repeatedly made about manhood sizes, with phallic objects used as well as the act performing moonies to the fans ringside.
7. TRISH'S TABLE TURN ON
With Bubba Ray Dudley going through a phase in 2000 of putting opponents through tables, Status was eyed up as his next target.
And with Bubba becoming infatuated by her, Status took it upon herself to turn the tables as she partook in a number of sketches where she erotically caressed tables in skimpy attire to dissuade him from carrying out his fantasy.
8. BLISS-FULLY UNAWARE
A WWE official was left red-faced after he walked in on a naked Alexa Bliss who was getting changed backstage in January 2019.
After entering her dressing room, he immediately realised she was topless, though she managed to cover her modesty with a small top.
9. BATISTA SEDUCED BY MELINA
Melina tried her best to persuade Batista to go easy in his tag-team title match with Rey Mysterio against her team MNM – consisting of Joey Mercury and Johnny Nitro.
But despite Melina and Batista sharing a passionate kiss, with the pair then shown to be getting dressed, the World Heavyweight champion told her, "thanks for the warm up", before vowing to kill his opponents.
And it was Batista that delivered the crushing blow on Mercury to win him and Mysterio the titles.
10. SUNNY SIDE UP
Wrestling manager and ring announcer Sunny left fans' pulses racing when she introduced the 1996 Royal Rumble as she soaked herself in a bubble bath.
Warning material of a "graphic nature" and that "viewer discretion is advised", Sunny certainly left all eyes on her.
