Pro wrestling is a high pressure environment and sometimes that means nerves are heightened to an extreme degree. That is the situation Kelly Kelly continued finding herself in each time she was set to have a match in WWE. It also resulted in a pretty messy prematch routine.
While doing a virtual signing with The Asylum Wrestling Store, Kelly Kelly revealed something very personal about her time in WWE. Prior to every match, the nerves got to her so much that she was forced to throw up backstage. She claimed that happened before “every match” too place.
It wasn’t a negative experience for her as those nerves were simply going crazy. The rush of going through the curtain and hearing live fans chanting her name was apparently enough to bring that reaction.
That’s like the one thing that I miss is just walking through the curtain and hearing people and hearing the ‘holla holla’ and people chanting ‘Kelly Kelly’. Every day and I’ll tell you a funny little thing, right before every match, I would get sick. Like I would throw up in a trash can right before because I was so nervous. All your nerves are — you’re just like, ‘Oh my, I want the crowd to like me tonight, I hope my match — I don’t wanna mess up.’ So many emotions are running through your mind and then the second you run through the curtain, it’s just like relief and excitement and just amazing. There’s nothing else like it.
Kelly Kelly left WWE in 2012, and she’s already commented about the possibility of working for another pro wrestling company. It doesn’t seem likely that Kelly Kelly would accept an offer elsewhere since she is still very loyal to WWE.
Every pro wrestler has their own ritual before going out and entertaining the WWE Universe. Kelly Kelly’s just happened to be that she needed to throw up. Thankfully, they always seemed to have a trash can around for her.
