Before her recent television foray into the WAGS universe, Barbie Blank was known to WWE enthusiasts as Kelly Kelly. One of the top stars of the sport during her run, Blank spent seven years fighting all comers and was able to set her own records.
“I was the youngest woman that they had ever had,” says Blank, who is engaged to former NHL player Sheldon Souray. “I was modeling in Florida and I was a gymnast for a long time so I have that athletic background and they found me in a bikini catalogue and they called my agent.”
Charm and a telegenic face didn’t guarantee Blank an immediate ticket into wrestling, as she had to prove that a potential fighter existed beneath her top model exterior. After sustaining her share of scrapes, bumps and bruises, Blank was ready for her next chapter. (check out the Video below as she talks about being initiated into the wrestling world – WAGS member Sasha Gates is also in the vid).
