Former WWE Diva Kelly Kelly, real name Barbie Blank (yes, seriously), was one of the more popular Superstars back in the day, partially because of her penchant for striping off at a moment's notice.
Kelly debuted as part of the now defunct ECW brand when she was just 19-years-old, and was soon paired with Mike Knox as an exhibitionist who was constantly being told to cover up by her jealous boyfriend.
While appearing on Renee Paquette's podcast, Kelly revealed that none other than Vincent Kennedy McMahon himself gave her some pointers before she went out on stage to begin her routine.
“I was only in developmental for literally two months," she told the AEW interviewer. "Paul Heyman called me and he’s like, ‘Barbie I have this idea for you. You’re going to be this exhibitionist, but you have a jealous boyfriend [Mike Knox] who comes out and covers you up every week.’ And he told me, ‘it’s just a storyline to get your foot in the door. We know you can’t wrestle yet. But we think it’s a good idea.’ And I just thought ‘well I’m not going to say no. Let’s do it!’"
"I remember Kasama [veteran backstage WWE producer] had the role of having to really teach me how to dance," she continued. "Then we had to go and show Vince [McMahon]. And Vince had [his own ideas on the dance.] And I remember being like, ‘this is somebody that I used to watch when I was a kid.’ And this is Vince McMahon, teaching me how he wants me to do this dance and striptease. They wanted me to watch the Carmen Elektra dance tapes. ‘Okay, I’ll watch whatever.'”
