Kelly Kelly (a.k.a.) Barbie Blank was one of the most popular divas of the PG Era. After working with WWE for over six years, she won the Divas Championship. She later retired from wrestling but made sporadic appearances for the company.
In a recent interview with Dropkick Podcast, Kelly opened up about her Royal Rumble return:
"I always love coming back for the Royal Rumble. This is my third one but this one is different. It was really cool to be in the ring with Sasha and Tamina and have that moment. I've always wanted to work with Sasha so it was really cool to be able to do that."
When asked about her dream opponent, Kelly had two superstars in mind.
"Either Sasha or Charlotte Flair for sure."
It will be interesting to see how the dream match scenario will work as Sasha Banks is currently suspended for her walkout with Naomi and Charlotte has taken time off after her battle with Ronda Rousey.
