• Former Divas Champion Open To A WWE Return
It appears as though a former WWE Divas Champion wants to return to WWE. If there’s one thing we have learned from following WWE it’s that when somebody leaves, it often isn’t goodbye forever especially if that person leaves on good terms. In this case, the woman in question is Kelly Kelly.
According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Kelly Kelly is open to returning to WWE. She has been working in the fashion industry and has also been doing some movies since leaving WWE.
The former Divas Champion wrestled for WWE from 2006 to 2012. She last made an appearance in the ring during the first ever woman’s Royal Rumble match earlier this year. She arrived at number 19 and was eliminated by Nia Jax after lasting 5 minutes in the match.
During a recent interview with WrestlingNewsCo, Kelly Kelly noted that the door is open for a return:
“I always say never say never. Obviously, when I left 5 years ago I left the door open so when I got the opportunity to come back and be a part of the Royal Rumble, I was so excited about it. We have a great relationship – me and WWE so the door is open so you never know.”
When asked about which WWE star she wants to face, she mentioned the name of “The Queen”:
“I would have to say Charlotte (Flair). I feel like she is such an amazing wrestler. She is amazing all around. She has a gymnastics background. If feel we are similar with out gymnastics and all that stuff. I think that would be a really exciting and thrilling match. I love her style and I think she’s amazing.”
