Recently on the Steve Austin Show, 'Stone Cold' Steve Austin interviewed Barbie Blank, the former Kelly Kelly. During the interview, Blank covered a number of professional wrestling topics, including who she stays in touch with from the pro wrestling business, her thoughts on the current WWE product, and whether she would ever return to the squared circle.
When asked whether she remains close with people from the professional wrestling business, Blank responded that she is good friends with Maryse, and, by extension, her husband, the Miz. Also, Blank noted that her fiancé, former NHL player Sheldon Souray, is very close with CM Punk. According to Blank, Souray has plans to get CM Punk's name tattooed to his body after losing a bet to Punk.
"They had a bet that if Chicago wins [the Stanley Cup], then Shel has to get [Punk's] name tattooed on him and then if Sheldon won, then Punk has to get Shel's name on him, so Punk ended up winning and now Sheldon has to get a CM Punk tattoo on him," Blank said. "That's going to be very funny to see when that's all done."
As for whether Blank still watches WWE programming, she said she is still a WWE fan and will always be a fan. Blank admitted that she thought the Divas division had gotten a little stale since the departure of AJ Lee and was glad to see Charlotte, Sasha Banks, and Becky Lynch get called up to the main roster.
"I love seeing those girls definitely come up to the main roster and kind of give a fresh, new look and kind of liven up the Divas division a little bit," Blank continued, "I think Charlotte's amazing and she was a big gymnast too, for a long time, so I love that she incorporates a lot of gymnastics into her moves too."
Blank went on to say that her time with WWE was the best six years of her life and "a blessing for sure." Blank indicated that a return for one more run is quite possible.
"I feel like if they ever are like, 'okay, Barbie, you have one more run in you', I may do that," Blank said. "I would definitely come back for maybe one more run. You never know. I'm still young and my body's doing okay, so you never know."
In addition to these topics, Blank talked about the origins of her exhibitionist character, how Vince McMahon came up with the Kelly Kelly name, and much more. To listen to the whole podcast, click here.
