-- After being chosen to take on WWE Divas Champion Brie Bella last Monday on RAW, Kelly Kelly (53%), who beat out Beth Phoenix (36%) and Eve (11%), took full advantage of her opportunity. Kelly relieved Brie of the title to begin her first championship reign.
Kelly revealed her thoughts on finally winning the strap to WWE.com.
"The biggest compliment for me was the fans voting for me on Raw," Kelly said. "I feel like the fans have really connected with me for five years. I think some might see me as the underdog – always working hard, but just never getting a chance."
The fans weren't the only ones lined up to congratulate Kelly as she was greeted with a warm welcome by her peers upon returning backstage.
"The Divas were standing there by the locker room, waiting and clapping for me," Kelly revealed. "I've never been injured. I've worked the live events five years straight with no real off weeks. I've worked so hard for this, and I think the other Divas recognized that."
