Many fans have been openly critical of the Diva's wrestling abilities, but whether this claim is accurate or not, the fact remains that Kelly Kelly will one day be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame. She has been nominated for the position five times so far and has yet to win because many feel that Charlotte should get in first because she was part of the original Divas division, but others say that it should be Kelly because they believe her work as a whole is worthy of being called great.
She started out with the company in 1997 when she competed under her real name Kristine Lilly against another rookie named Stephanie McMahon in what was called a "Dream Match" for the WWE Championship at Survivor Series. The match lasted over an hour and included references to various other matches and periods in WWE history. In the end, Stephanie won by disqualification when it was discovered that Kristine had used a banned substance in their battle for the championship. However, this did not stop the fans from chanting for Kristine afterwards because they believed that she deserved to be champion given how good she was during her time in the ring.
Kristine would go on to compete further down the card before being moved up into the main event scene in 2002 where she faced Lita in a match that went off the floor and onto the roof of a building after Lita attacked Kristine with a forklift.
Kelly was never a great or even a good women's wrestler, but her matches were always respectable—no small achievement in WWE's botched Divas Division. She had some memorable moments during her time with the company.
Kelly's first major moment came at the Survivor Series 1997 edition when she participated in the famous Battle of the Billionaires match that included Shawn Michaels and Vince McMahon. The match ended in a no-contest after both men were counted out, but Kelly helped make it interesting by throwing her shoe at Shawn Michaels before the ref could count him out. This started a feud between the two that culminated at WrestleMania XV where Kelly defeated Michaels via submission.
Another notable moment from Kelly's time with the company came at the 2001 Women's Royal Rumble event when she participated in a 10-Divas Tag Team Match. She along with other wrestlers including Linda McMahon, Tammy Sytch, and Victoria were put into what is known as "the Godfather's Club" which gives its members an opportunity to be drafted into any match taking place on the show. At this point in time, the club was full so the wrestlers were just assigned to matches randomly.
Kelly is well-known in the globe for her time in WWE, and she has a gymnastics and cheering background. If you want to learn more about a professional wrestler, you've come to the perfect place.

When Kelly first started out in WWE, she was used primarily as a face (good guy) character. This means that she portrayed herself as a nice person who wanted to make friends. She would often do friendly things for others (such as give people advice or help them out), but also had matches where she would hit other women with objects such as tables and chairs.
In later years, Kelly turned heel (bad guy), which means that she now portrays herself as mean and evil. In these stories, she would often try to hurt other women, such as by using their own weapons against them.
Through all these changes, what hasn't changed is that she has always tried to put on a great show for her fans. This includes doing gymnastics during her matches to add realism or having someone else play her during parts of the show where she needs a rest.
Kelly Kelly is returning to WWE. Kelly (real name Barbie Blank) retired from WWE in 2012 due to a neck ailment. The show follows "Total Divas," which featured WWE performers, on E!
Cathy Kelly is no longer associated with the WWE brand. On Valentine's Day, the television anchor announced her retirement from the sports entertainment behemoth. "I've typed out and deleted this around 20 times over the last three days, still unsure what to write," she said. "But I think I just need to get it out there so I can move on."
Kelly was a four-time Women's Champion in the WWF/E during its first two years. She went on to become one of the most popular stars in the company's history.
After leaving the company in 2001, Kelly worked as a color commentator for WWEShamrock before joining the TNT coverage team in 2002. In 2003, she became the lead announcer for Monday Night Raw, replacing Michael Cole who had moved to SmackDown! She continued in that role until January 2005 when she resigned to spend more time with her family.
During her time with the company, Kelly developed a reputation for being tough on performers who missed schedules or showed up late for events. She also received several complaints from women's advocates about her comments on the air which some people believed were sexist.
In 2012, Kelly returned to TV as a backstage interviewer for the WWE's flagship program, WrestleMania. She has since appeared at other events including New Year's Revolution in 2013, The Bash in 2014, and Battleground in 2015.
