- Kelly Kelly returns to the WWE ring next week after being granted time off the road in late May. She is scheduled to appear on the SmackDown brand’s tour of Japan beginning August 9 and will be returning full-time.

Kelly, who had been on the road on a weekly basis since joining WWE in 2006, was reportedly granted a break to spend time with her family and boyfriend. She last competed on television on the May 21 Raw SuperShow, losing to Beth Phoenix.

– MVP was among the WWE alumnus contacted to appear on Raw 1,000. WWE officials, however, ultimately changed their minds on bringing him and other former Superstars such as Steve Blackman, Tatanka and Viscera.

– The July 27 Raw live event in Charleston, West Virginia drew 5,500 attendees paying $170,000. The July 28 Raw live event in Lexington, Kentucky drew 6,000 paying $200,000. The July 29 Raw live event at the Broadbent Arena in Louisville, Kentucky drew a legitimate sell-out of 6,000 paying $235,000. The July 28 SmackDown live event in Johnson City, Tennessee drew 3,500 paying $110,000. The July 29 SmackDown live event in Pikeville, Kentucky drew 4,000 paying $120,000.

    Infact, she will not be returning next week, she will be returning in the next scheduled divas match….next month.

    As I said with the Tatanka article last week, no offence to guys like MVP and Blackman (both of whom I am a fan of), a lot of guys were probably only contacted initially as back up in case the guys like Gunn, Rock and Lesnar were unable to make it.
    Gunn and X Pac were obviously not names in the same league as Lesnar and Rock, but their contribution to RAW via the DX faction was huge, so they were a necessity, whereas Tatanka, Blackman and MVP would have just been token appearances overlooked because the bigger names were there.

    well from what i hear. she great at giving head. just like orton said on howard stern sirius radio show last year. kelly is boring on mic she can’t wrestle. she can’t talk she sucks in ring. maryse, melina, mickie james were at least entertaining.

  • KingAblert

    how much did this slut swindle from WWE this time. She needs to go to TNA, she’s terribly boring.

  • SuperCena < Divorce Papers

    So Kelly is allowed to have time off but not John Cena? Tell me something isn’t wrong here…

    I was real upset when Steve “Lethal Weapon” Blackman wasn’t on RAW 1000.

  • Bill
