STAMFORD, Conn. -- --Thousands Tried but Only 28 Remain for the Opportunity to Take Home $250,000 and the Honor of Becoming the Newest WWE DIVA

--Top 10 Finalists to Be Selected During the "Live $250,000 Raw(R) Diva Search Casting Special" Airing on Spike TV, July 15 at 10 P.M.

Who will be the next glamorous face of World Wrestling Entertainment(R)? Out of the thousands of women around the world who tried, only 28 have what it takes to compete for $250,000 and the title of the newest WWE DIVA. The final 10 contestants will be selected during the "Live $250,000 Raw Diva Search Casting Special" on Spike TV, July 15 at 10 p.m.(ET).

This group of 28 includes Playboy playmates, a former Dallas Cowboy Cheerleader, an "Outback Jack" star, and a set of twins who were called "two of the most dynamic, positive personalities they have ever worked with," by the creators of the Man Show. Despite their various ages and backgrounds, they all have one thing in common; it is their dream to be a WWE DIVA.

WWE fans around the country will be able to tune in to see this intense elimination take place at the Beacon Theatre in New York City.

Open casting calls were held in Los Angeles, NYC, and Chicago in June and July to narrow the field down from thousands to 28 women. Starting on July 19, the 10 finalists will appear on RAW and perform a special assignment. WWE fans will vote to eliminate one contestant each week until only one is left. On September 13, there will be three remaining finalists. One is eliminated in the first hour of the show, and then winner is declared in the second hour. The new RAW Diva receives a one-year WWE contract and $250,000.

The following the 28 finalists where chosen from each of the locations:
