Dueling WWE Divas

The WWE is looking for its next Diva and TMZ was backstage at the casting call with a group of bikini-clad babes.

"Smackdown" wrestler and professional "Real World" star Mike "The Miz" Mizanin and last year's Diva Search winner Ashley Massaro served as judges for the LA casting call, which was by invite only.

"Not only do I have the hardest job, but I have the best job. Hundreds of girls come up and try to impress me," says a more-than-happy Mizanin, "I can sit back to the hottest girl I've ever seen in my life and say entertain me."

And entertain they do, with one girl storming off from auditions, another dropping to the floor to do push-ups in camouflage and a third told to act as if a close friend just died. So why do they put themselves through the process? Our cammo-clad friend explains, "I think WWE really offers that edge and class as well. We can keep our classiness, be sexy and be vixens at the same time."

Sure, the opportunity to be classy in a bikini is appealing, but the $250,000 in prize money is certainly a big draw as well.

The 8 finalists will make their debut on "RAW" and "SmackDown" beginning the week of July 10th and eliminations will continue  through August.
