Kelly Kelly was an unlikely female superstar who came up during the Post-Ruthless Aggression and became a cornerstone for women in WWE. The perfect combination of smart, beautiful, and highly athletic, Kelly proved her worth as a skilled in-ring competitor back then. Nowadays, the former blonde bombshell is busy with her modeling career, but recently treated her fans with a sizzling photo.
Barbie Blank started out as a gymnast, doing it for nearly 10 years, and further moved on to pursue cheerleading, anchoring, and other projects. It wasn’t until John Laurinitius spotted her and invited Kelly for a WWE Tryout in 2006.
Despite no prior wrestling experience, Kelly Kelly was signed by WWE in May 2006. She began her tenure at their developmental territories, starting out as a ring announcer, then referee, and finally as an in-ring athlete.
Kelly Kelly made her debut on WWE’s former brand ECW in June 2006. Her most notable program was her own segment called Kelly’s Extreme Expose, where she would do a seductive dance for the audience along with other female stars.
The former gymnast made her through the main roster and captured her one and only WWE Divas championship from Brie Bella in July 2011. As Barbie Blank, she has been away from the wrestling world for quite a while now, but she continues to be very active on social media, recently posting a jaw-dropping click on Instagram in a skimpy black outfit.
“You can call me Mrs. Coba ♠️.”
Kelly Kelly left WWE back in September 2012. However, she has continued to make sporadic appearances since then and could very well pop at this weekend’s Royal Rumble event as a surprise entrant in the namesake battle royal match. In the meantime, you can check out her photo below, and keep circling back to Ringside News for more content like this.
