Former WWE star Kelly Kelly has confirmed that she’ll be at WrestleMania 33, as well as the Hall of Fame ceremony this year — and she also wants to make a short return to the company.
Kelly — aka Barbie Blank — appeared on Sirius XM’s show Conversation with Maria Menounos and was asked about all the rumors that have popped up since she was backstage at Raw.
“I don’t know if I’m gonna be wrestling, per se, but I will be at Mania.” Adding, “I will be at Mania, I will be at Hall of Fame and I’m gonna do some Axxess signings.”
The ex-Divas champ tip-toed around saying she’d be inducting a friend into the HOF, but Maria hinted that she already knew because she’s helping that women prepare her style for the event.
Barbie also says she was repeatedly asked about her interest in a return last week — admitting Senior Director of Talent Relations Mark Carrano was one of the people asking — and she told them, “I would come back for like a run, ya’know, a mini-run or something.”
