• Former WWE Diva Says She Threw Up Before Every Match
Ruthless Aggression Era Diva Kelly Kelly recently spoke to The Asylum Wrestling Store during a virtual (online live stream) autograph signing, where she revealed that she used to vomit before her wrestling matches.
Kelly Kelly worked for the WWE from 2006 until 2012, but returned for one-off appearances on many occasions since.
Here’s what the former WWE Divas Champion had to say:
“That’s like the one thing that I miss is just walking through the curtain and hearing people and hearing the ‘holla holla’ and people chanting ‘Kelly Kelly’.
Every day and I’ll tell you a funny little thing, right before every match, I would get sick. Like I would throw up in a trash can right before because I was so nervous.
All your nerves are, you’re just like, ‘Oh my, I want the crowd to like me tonight, I hope my match, I don’t wanna mess up’.
So many emotions are running through your mind and then the second you run through the curtain, it’s just like relief and excitement and just amazing.
There’s nothing else like it.”
