Report reaching us spells it our that former WWE Women’s Champion has finally re-signs with the company after several years away.
For the heck of it, Kelly Kelly (real name Barbie Blank) left the WWE in 2012 after suffering a neck injury. Kelly Kelly is married to former NHL player Sheldon Souray.
She was backstage on Monday night at RAW, in Las Vegas, because the couple owns a home there and she indicated she would be game to step in the ring again. WWE posted a video of her backstage. In the video, Kelly said, “I would love to do one more run … in the future.”
Kelly then confirmed that she would be appearing at WWE Axxess. As per this report, Kelly Kelly has re-joined the WWE, signing a multi-year deal. Sources tell us that Kelly Kelly has just signed a two-year deal with the WWE, with an option for a third.
Prio to the signing of Kelly Kelly, WWE wanted the Emmalina character to hark back to old characters like Sable and The Kat, and that the long delay was down to a feeling that Emma wasn’t committing enough to the role. Eventually, WWE decided to pull the plug.
Hence, Kelly Kelly was quickly signed as the replacement. It was pointed out to us that the WWE had planned to bring in Kelly Kelly anyway, however, officials invited her to the Vegas taping and were said to be happy with Kelly Kelly’s audition for the character, resulting in Emma finally being dropped from the role.
Emma is likely to revert back to her role as a heel, as Raw is desperate for women performers.
Meanwhile, Kelly Kelly is likely to spend time at the WWE Performance Center to improve her in-ring skills. Kelly Kelly has already said she will be appearing at WWE Axxess during WrestleMania weekend on the WWE.com video.
our sources further said to us that Kelly Kelly has re-joined the WWE and that the company has big plans for her.
Now, Kelly Kelly would be considered a throwback to the “diva” era, which should be a good way to generate heat.
As new do not take it for granted that, Kelly Kelly is still beautiful and the WWE is still an 80% red-blooded male audience. It will be interesting to see how this one pans out and if plans change again.
One thing that is for sure, Kelly Kelly will back in the WWE shortly and she will be appearing on both WWE TV and Total Divas. With the WWE likely to be without the Bella Twins and with the company already having a number of capable female workers on their roster, the re-signing of Kelly Kelly certainly makes a lot of sense.
