WWE Hall of Famer Picks Kelly Kelly as His Favorite Diva

Which WWE Diva is most befitting the title of Stone Cold Steve Austin’s favorite? That honor would go to Kelly Kelly.

The WWE Hall of Famer picked the former Divas Champ as his favorite Diva in WWE when asked by a fan on Twitter.

He wrote:

[Kelly Kelly's] my fave Diva. Super nice young lady. Keeps improving in the ring. Very easy on the eyes.

How sweet!

    I wonder how many fights we’ll have in this topic.

      Don’t jinx it.

      • Litawasrobbed

        I figured it would happen. I may have made a mild comment, nothing to venomous.

        • jayjayholler

          Lmao

  • DIVAsupporter

    And let the nasty jokes begin

    • shameronstar

      I’ve got one! Kelly sure loves the rattle snakes because they are big and long, have a deep bite, and have thick, strong venom!

      • FameHooker18

        Goood one XDXDXDXDXD

      • joshmm3

        lmao

  • Mr.3D

    How ironic: K2′s favorite Superstar is “Stone Cold” Steve Austin!!! It would be cool if he came back to gave K2 some pointers, and toughen her up!!! Especially where it concerns The Bella Twins, and Eve Torres!!!

    • Chryst Voegele

      Vince,Lita,Trish,Tara already praise Eve.

  • Litawasrobbed

    “Keeps improving in the ring”. I am just curious when improving becomes capable or great in the ring? It’s been about 5 or 6 years. It does not take this long to become a decent wrestler.

    Austin needs to stop talking with the wrong head.

    • https://twitter.com/#!/StephMCK2 StephMC

      Erm I do respect ur opinion but… Didn’t Trish come from the same league, what about Candice Michelle, Layla and even Torrie Wilson! These girls similar to K2 (well kinda) shown that it does take time to become a decent wrestler.

      • http://au.groups.yahoo.com/group/WWE_Divas/ art

        but none of those girls took almost 7 years like kelly has & shes still not capable of the basics….

        • Litawasrobbed

          Thank you ART.That is my point. They all stared around the same place, but they improved over 5 years. Kelly has not shown ENOUGH improvement over 5 years.

        • BillyGP

          Kelly is capable and has improved she may not be great but she is decent enough. To me Kelly is not the worst and has improved.

        • http://au.groups.yahoo.com/group/WWE_Divas/ art

          @BillyGP thats you’re opinion & i have mine…you don’t need to be so defensive….to me shes no where near layla,eve or alicia fox & all of them came in with no training….

        • BillyGP

          Im not defensive and you need to stop posting about Kelly if it the same thing over and over yes it may but your opinion but i dont agree.

  • Jhonmarco

    That’s interesting. Nice nod for Kelly.

    And speaking of her the girl has just reached over 500,000 followers! <3

  • Nostalgia

    I don’t care for Kelly Kelly either way. But c’mon 6 years??? Smh. Naomi didn’t start wrestling until 09, look at her

    • BillyGP

      Naomi to me is not that good yet but that my opinion what do i know.

  • http://twitter.com/sulkingbeauty adifferentsame

    It’s a nice compliment either way one wants to interpret it. One of the company’s most historic superstars could have picked a Diva twice as technically proficient or underrated, but he didn’t.

  • French.One

    I agree with him Kelly Kelly is the hottest diva, and Stone Cold knows a future wwe star when he sees one, like the winner of tough enough … wait wat !?

    • Nostalgia

      lolll! Perfect example.

    • Mr.3D

      Actually, he picked John Cena to become a big star!!! So, obviously Austin knows what he’s talking about!!!

    • BillyGP

      Vince was the one who picked Andy to win TE Austin just had to make the announcement.

    • norisclouds

      I have to admit this made me chuckle. At least this joke was clever.

  • http://www.diva-dirt.com candice7000

    I’m so tired of everybody trying to bash Kelly. And yes she is my fave and I’ll defend her to my best. But I’m not biast. Is Kelly the best wrestler on the roster? No! Is she the best on the mic? At times. Can she put on a good match? Has she improved? Yes!! Not everybody is a Naomi or Eve, everyone just don’t pick up wrestling quickly. Everybody wanna jump on her for doing what?? The exact thing Tirsh, Torrie, Canidce Michelle and HELL even Lita. Those divas improved over their course in wwe. So yea took her 5-6 years to improve. So did those other divas. Trish didn’t get solid til basically her last few years in wwe. Kelly can put on a great match, as we all seen. She needs time in the ring and somebody solid to work with. Just like every diva. I bet Trish matches wouldn’t be as good if she wrestled the Bella Twins or Rosa. She needs solid wrestlers. Her matches was epic due to the likes of Jazz, Molly Holly, Victoria and Mickie James. Her matches with Lita didn’t go as good when she started cause they both was on the same level. But when the two got more solid later down the line in their careers they put on good match. So stop trying to be an ass to her. Cause like it or not Kelly will in wwe for a long time. She has all the time in the world. Mark my words Kelly might be the one to by pass Trish’s title record. You’ll see.

    • http://xlittlemissobsessive.tumblr.com/ kellytrishfan

      Perfect comment is perfect Bellas, Rosa, etc. But at the end of the day, it’s not even worth getting upset about the comments anymore. For Kelly to be so talked about, good or bad, means she’s obviously doing something right.

    • RayneWoman

      Whoa! Calm down. You have to look at it this way; people can bash her all they want. At the end of the day, she is doing a good job. Being recognized by a legend (and one of my all time favorite wreslters) like SCSA, we can see she is doing a great job being a diva.

    • https://twitter.com/#!/StephMCK2 StephMC

      People bashes her all the time and what can we expect from them. We have to respect their opinions on one hand but its funny cos K2 gets hated all the time, for every single little thing she does. The tweet that Stone Cold sent was to imply that K2 is doing a good job on being a Diva. Kelly may not be the best wrestler, but this shows she is doing something right n people should at least respect Stone Cold’s opinion.

    • Valese

      I’ve always wondered how Kelly would’ve turned out if she had the likes of Jazz, Molly, Ivory and Jacqueline to work matches with.

      • RayneWoman

        She has Beth, Nattie, and she may even have a match with Kharma in the future. When you compare her matches with these two women to the likes of the Bellas, you can clearly see that she brings her A-game into the matches with Beth and Nattie. While her matches with the Bellas consisted of mostly ass slaps, stinkfaces, and too much trash talking on part of the Bellas.

      • FrankNFurter

        Kelly has worked with Jazz, during the ECW run, though I don’t think any of their encounters made it on screen.

    • No Holds Barred

      Don’t listen to what internet trolls have to say, she is being recognised by Mick Foley and SCSA as a good Diva.

    • http://www.freewebs.com/randomvidsinc joeyesrojo

      I’m sorry, but Kelly Kelly isn’t a good wrestler. I don’t care who it’s against, she does the same exact move set. The only reason her matches against Beth and Nattie look good is because Kelly Kelly is a good seller, I’ll giver her that. I’ve seen her take impressive bumps and I’ll give her credit for that. But Kelly really can’t pull off any offensive moves. She’s got her screaming headscissors, followed by a cheerleading elbow, stinkface, awkward bulldog to the mat, screaming shoving face in the mat and a rollup must be her new finisher because she’s yet to use hers in the past months.

      I believe that she is trying to work with what she’s got, but I just don’t see this as a place for her. Being in the business for 6 years and still not being able to run the ropes is pretty sad. With all that said Kelly Kelly is a great Diva, but not a wrestler.

      And to CANDICE7000, did you really just say that Lita and Trish both started off on the same level? Lita came in with training, Trish didn’t, far from the same level!

      • norisclouds

        Trish did have some training. She worked with a wrestling trainer for a brief while before she started. Lita only had ONE YEAR of training.

        I can never say that enough.

        ONE YEAR.

        Every time people piss and moan about how sloppy her moonsaults were, her transitions etc… remember this girl had ONE YEAR compared to these other girls with 4 or 5 or 6. ONE.

        From that perspective, it probably isn’t fair to compare any diva to her level of skill when she came in. She was green, but far beyond anything we’ve seen from other women who only wrestled for (deep breath) ONE YEAR at the time…or ever. Which WWE has given her credit for in their official material on her.

  • No Holds Barred

    Just waiting for the trolls.

    anyway, good for Kelly, nice to be noticed by a legend such as SCSA

  • RayneWoman

    Great for Kelly. That’s all I have to say. :-)

  • Valese

    Well it is HIS favorite diva. Not everyone is obliged to like the internet favorites, Beth Phoenix, Natalya or Kharma. And for some stupid reason this is just going to bring more unnecessary hate on Kelly.

    • RayneWoman

      On point there Valese. I admit that Kelly is not one of my favorite divas. But if SCSA chose her, I respect his opinion because he is one of my all time favorites.

    • https://twitter.com/#!/StephMCK2 StephMC

      Great comment! Plus if you haven’t notice the tweet, the question he replied to was “what are your thoughts on Kelly Kelly?”. K2 gets hated all the time – we know that… I just don’t understand why these unnecessary haters won’t respect Stone Cold’s opinion. At the end of the day, everyone has their opinion and yet some people are just hypocrites! Oh well! (:

  • Nostalgia

    Kelly is never best on the mic… I don’t expect her to be the best… Hell I’ve had no formal training but I’ve can run ropes

    • https://twitter.com/#!/StephMCK2 StephMC

      *Kelly is never best on the mic* – true! *She’s not the best Diva/Wrestler ever* – true. *Has she improved* – true… LOL we get the hate! I respect your opinion n please continue the trolling – actually no… cos it always gets old! Im not here to start a fight or an argument, we get that you ‘dislike’ K2 and that we know ‘you think she sucks as a wrestler n is awful in the ring…’ Kelly is just a person after all. This is just my opinion after all, so I must respect urs too! Peace!

  • http://wrestlinggirl1993.tumblr.com/ xoxoRKOxoxo

    congrats to kelly being told your SCSA favorite dive is huge and that coming from her favorite wrestler and shes only 25 she has all the time in the world to become great she just needs time. shes one of my favorites!!!! #K2Krew

  • http://ashmultimedia.wordpress.com melon2617

    It’s his opinion, his to give & K2 must feel very proud. She’s not one of my faves but she does seem like a very nice girl & she is quite pretty & she (much like the other Divas), busts her arse to entertain.

    I’m surprised no one has accused him of being forced to say it, like Foley & Bret Hart were.

    • redsandman99

      Just wait that’s probably coming.

      • http://xlittlemissobsessive.tumblr.com/ kellytrishfan

        ^ Lol, exactly.

  • RayneWoman

    Bret Hart praised Melina and the Bellas.
    Randy Orton praised Natalya
    Roddy Piper praised AJ

    Different superstars have different opinions.

  • https://twitter.com/#!/StephMCK2 StephMC

    Yo K2 Haters! Hiii, You see me, not yet, oh wait now you do, yes thats right… this is directly to u? The question Stone Cold replied to was… “What are your thoughts on @RealKellyKelly?” not “Who is your favourite Diva of all time?”! Got it now… no wait you don’t, cos there’s seriously nothing on your mind than bashing on K2 when she didn’t do nothing wrong except ‘didn’t train as much as Naomi and Eve did, sucks horribly in the ring, not good on mic, can’t run ropes, boring personality (really?!) and never improved after a near six years (Laughs)’. Didn’t Trish Stratus, Layla, Michelle McCool, Candice Michelle, Torrie Wilson improved within a long span of time. We get that you ‘hate’ K2 already… Geez people! Let the trolling begin… this was fun! Thank u and peace! *Yes! This is my sarcastic tone…* > Failed attempt… oh well!

    • No Holds Barred

      haha.. I love this comment. Puts asses in seats.

      but really, it’s not that SHE didn’t train, it’s that WWE didn’t put effort into her training, about a month in OVW before being shoved onto ECW.

      • http://xlittlemissobsessive.tumblr.com/ kellytrishfan

        ‘but really, it’s not that SHE didn’t train, it’s that WWE didn’t put effort into her training, about a month in OVW before being shoved onto ECW.’

        Exactly why I don’t understand why people are comparing her to people who have been in FCW for years.

        • http://au.groups.yahoo.com/group/WWE_Divas/ art

          About kellys training she trained 2 hours everyday for the first two years she was hired to wwe…
          all the divas you mentioned didnt take 6 years like kelly has so far & kelly isnt even on the level of layla,eve or alicia fox…who all came in around kellys time…

        • No Holds Barred

          Alicia Fox was signed in 2006 and didn’t come into full time wrestling until 2009, Eve debuted in early 2009 as well.

        • http://au.groups.yahoo.com/group/WWE_Divas/ art

          Compare kelly to any diva besides rosa & all of them are improving at a quicker rate then kelly is…

        • http://sickreasonstobebeautiful.tumblr.com/ no rain

          leave rosa alone! xD haha

        • BillyGP

          Art stop bashing Kelly it took Layla how long to become who she is? Not till she teamed with Michelle right.

          Some people also learn faster then others but Kelly is learning fine.

        • http://au.groups.yahoo.com/group/WWE_Divas/ art

          when layla teamed with michelle is when they allowed her to talk on the mic & actually show off her ability instead of just jobbing….

  • bxradimus

    Okay. Something just isn’t right here.

    Don’t get me wrong. I can understand the Bella’s getting some praise. They have improved and are decent characters.

    But when people praise Kelly, who has went from nothing to still complete crap overall…it just doesn’t make sense. Austin is the guy he did Tough Enough. If Kelly can’t run the ropes, bump correctly or hit moves correctly…how can he say anything remotely positive about her?

    I understand him praising her personality in real life. But nothing else. Kelly is crap, plain and simple. Maybe if WWE were smart enough to push the very few talented girls on the roster the correct way, then they’d be getting a little praise here and there.

    • Valese

      Lol so no-one should praise Kelly at all?

    • https://twitter.com/#!/StephMCK2 StephMC

      Isn’t there any other girls crapper than K2! Kelly is popular than half the roster! Deal with it! -_-

      • Nostalgia

        popular? Yes, because she’s blonde with perky tits. She’s better than Rosa. But Rosa isn’t getting attention from people saying she’s great

        • Valese

          So? who cares?
          If Kelly was given praise, then good for her. Why does it bother you?

        • RayneWoman

          She was praised by a veteran wrestler. Its not the end of the world. I am not Kelly’s fan. But I respect his opinion.

    • BillyGP

      Well Kelly can bump right and hit moves right but people just like bashing on her.

  • Nostalgia

    Let me put it like this… I get that Kelly is vital to keeping the divas afloat. But the only way the IWC is going to I guess embrace her is book her better so she has to get better in action. Trish was sucky. But constant battles with Molly, Jazz, Jacqueline, Victoria and even Chyna made her get better… Put her in feuds with Natalya, Beth, AJ, Kharma, Naomi… LET THEM WRESTLE. Stop having divas dominate Kelly then her hit her five moves of doom and win.

    • RayneWoman

      Haven’t you seen the matches that Kelly had with Natalya, Beth, and recently Eve?

    • No Holds Barred

      Trish was sucky LOL. ok kid… I’ll just leave it at that.

      and how the hell would Chyna and Jacqueline make Trish better?? Chyna is awful, like really awful, and Jackie, although was a good wrestler, was notably stiff, I don’t see how stiffness in matches helps you improve.

      • http://facebook.com/mykael.kennedy mykel1990

        I’m still stuck on the Chyna part, honestly. lol, but I’ll say this for Chyna, she wrestled a whole let better with the women than she did men. But Chyna isn’t/ wasn’t a carrier, she was the carried. Not even Chris Jericho could make her look like a million bucks in the ring. I think Kelly is a decent wrestler, the only problem I truly have with her is all that bloody screaming, and her inability to run the ropes properly, and I feel that with longer matches, you can actually she her wrestle, and she doesn’t do a bad job at all, she’s actually quite solid.

        • Nostalgia

          If you think Trish was good when she first became a wrestler full time and not managing TNA youre crazy. Jackie may be a little stiff but in order for them to put on good matches Trish had to be up to par. And Chyna was Trish’s first “feud” if you’re insinuating Trish carried Chyna youre crazy

      • http://facebook.com/mykael.kennedy mykel1990

        During the whole Chyna/Trish feud, Chyna did what? 3 moves on her? You don’t have to really carry someone if one person bounces off of you, and you press slam them. Funnily enough, I never once said that Trish carried Chyna, but if it’s what you wanna believe…go for it.

      • norisclouds

        Um…Trish WAS sucky. But then she got better. Have you seen her early matches? She had a PPV match with Jacqueline where she botched the roll up, practically every move. She sold like a champ but she was bad. Really bad. Just terrible. The crowd didn’t care because she was hot and they loved her, but she was awful. If you think that Trish started out as good you need to go back and watch her early work. Where she started her career and where she ended is like night and day.

    • BillyGP

      Trish was not hired to wrestle at first but became a good wrestler she was not sucky.

      • redsandman99

        She was indeed sucky to start off with. I think her feud with Molly was what helped her develop some good skills.

  • litafan2000

    For some reason I cannot get into Kelly Kelly, yes she is very hot but her in ring skills are not great. She has improved a little bit but not nearly as much as Trish Stratus did in 6 years.

  • redsandman99

    It’s his opinion–and notice that he didn’t say that she’s the best wrestler on the diva’s roster.. If he likes her that’s his deal.

  • eyecon

    Basically he picked her because she’s blonde. Its been well noted the type of women he likes. With Maryse gone Kelly was his only other choice

  • http://au.groups.yahoo.com/group/WWE_Divas/ art

    I don’t mind his opinion at all but to say she keeps improving is laughable & that’s me being nice….

    • No Holds Barred

      oh really?

      Kelly Kelly vs Layla in 2007
      Kelly Kelly vs Layla in 2010/2011

      are they the same matches? No.

      • http://au.groups.yahoo.com/group/WWE_Divas/ art

        No their not the same matches, Layla’s improved so much more then kelly since 2007…Kelly doesn’t keep improving..she should be a veteran diva by now,Layla is a veteran..
        both came into wwe in 2006 & who is the considered the wrestler out of the two,who’s more talented out of the two?. layla..

        • No Holds Barred

          Layla a veteran? I’d hardly think so.

          yes she is athletic but far from a veteran.

      • JJ

        I think I preferred their ECW matches. Was it MITB the PPV match they had in 2010? Whatever it was it was a mess.

        Their ECW matches they knew their limitations and Kelly was at her most motivated. 2008 she was looking pretty decent against Beth.

        • http://au.groups.yahoo.com/group/WWE_Divas/ art

          yes that mitb match was just a hot mess…2008 was when kelly was in her prime…i just think shes resting on what she has..

    • BillyGP

      Layla is decent too but took her awhile to improve. Breaking news Art Kelly is a veteran case close.

      • http://au.groups.yahoo.com/group/WWE_Divas/ art

        Case closed LOL…shes not anywhere near veteran status…you can say shes a veteran but shes clearly not a leader in the ring….

        • BillyGP

          Dont need to be a ring leader to be consider a veteran. Like in sports there players who not team leaders but they are called Veterans

  • JJ

    That’s his choice. Basically every other diva has had someone come out and champion them, it’s about time someone said Kelly!

    Plus, Austin likes his blondes.

  • http://facebook.com/mykael.kennedy mykel1990

    I’m tired of all this Kelly bashing, Steve Austin said he liked her, cool. Case closed, point-blank period. Why is it whenever a diva gets recognized, and it’s not one of the “Big Three”, people have to bash them? Some diva fans…
