Barbie Blank Reveals How She Was Given The Name, “Kelly Kelly”

 Barbie Blank, also known as Kelly Kelly, talked with ‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austin on the Steve Austin Show podcast recently. She talked about various topics that include Vince McMahon showing her how he wanted her to dance in her WWE debut and more. Here are the highlights.

On Vince McMahon showing her how he wanted her to dance in her WWE debut:

“My first day I was in Vince’s office and he’s like, ‘I have this whole idea. I have this whole plan for the dance I want you to do.’ So he showed me this whole dance. I was dying because I was like 19 years old and watching Vince McMahon and WWE for my whole life and now I’m sitting here with Vince McMahon and you’re showing me how to dance. It was the funniest.”

She would explain that the idea behind her name was because of a joke from an episode of Cheers.

“I guess there’s a Cheers episode where one of the guys is singing about the girl and the song is like, ‘Kelly, Kelly, Kelly, Kelly’, so that’s what I’ve always heard,” Blank stated.
