Diva Returning for Raw 1000

Former Divas Champion, Kelly Kelly, who has been taking time off from WWE over the past couple of months, is returning to the road and will be present for tomorrow’s 1,000th episode of Raw.

Kelly tweeted: “On the road again. Can’t wait to see everyone at the #raw1000.”

No word yet on if Kelly will be used on the broadcast which is expected to feature dozens of Superstars, Divas and legends from past and present.

Kelly has been off the road over the past two months, last appearing on the May 21st episode of Raw.

    In a weird way I kind of missed Kelly Kelly, her constantly saying “Come On!” is infectious and she actually is a great showman because she always does what she can to get the fans involved! Maybe now the divas can be on tv every week again since Kelly is a regular who wwe loves to always use on some capacity, and since she’s rested for 2 months she might perform more passionately than she was before because despite my criticisms of her she actually does perform well when she wants to or when motivated enough. Also, Kelly is the only diva who they can use that has enough star power to get people somewhat interested in the divas, so a feud with Layla, Eve, or even AJ could work! and if Kharma ever returns Kelly can restart that storyline or when Sara Del Rey debuts(I heard she’s going straight to the main roster) she can doing something great with Kelly aswell:)

      The key thing will be if Kelly has maintained her overness and popularity with the fans. Wrestling fans seem to have the memory of a goldfish; case in point Eve, when she left she was getting consistent Heel reactions from the fans, now it’s back to square one and she’s having to work to get back that heat.

      Then there’s the matter if Kelly will be any good in the ring when she returns. The fact that she hasn’t trained at all in the ring during this hiatus has me thinking that she could be worse in-ring than when she left.

      Then there’s the matter if her being on Raw 1000 is her official return or if it’s a one-shot deal and that she’ll be back on hiatus afterwards.

        I’d be surprised to see people forget Kelly that quick. I mean it was only a little over a month, which seemed like years to us Kelly fans, lol, and the difference between Kelly and Eve is that Eve was over as a heel based on a storyline that WWE dropped the ball with when they made her an Executive Manager to Johnny =| Kelly is just naturally over as a face, she has a huge fan base, I think people are going to pop more just simply for the fact that she’s been away for a bit. The WWE fans do have a tendency to forget, but I doubt they’d forget her just that quickly, lol. And, I’m not really expecting Kelly to be much better in the ring. I do think she’ll perform better than her last match. I won’t be surprised to hear “Holla, Holla,” return tomorrow. Now that she’s back, I’m sure WWE is going to try and squeeze her in somewhere on the show, you can just tell that management/Vince marks for her so hard :P

    • divafan

      I wish Kelly doesn’t return. When she return I’m sure that the Divas division will be all about her again. She will be the GOOD Girl again with Aj turning heel and with Eve’s good heel character. She will be the HERO again even she sucks in wrestling skills. She might be beautiful but she is talent-less.

      • lelloo7

        so u prefer the divas not getting any heat ?? no1 caring about them ? and trust me… summerslam= kelly kelly.. so she will return, and set a feud for summerslam match ;)

      Oops, sorry about the double comment:)

  • Jcott3

    Personally, I’d rather not have K2 around. She’s not as hot-looking as some people think, her in-ring skills still blow and with the signing of Sara Del Rey and others, it appears WWE is moving back towards ‘female superstars’ and away from ‘Divas’. Now if they can find someone for her to manage and keep her out of the ring, I’d be all for it.

    • The K@rmic HeeL

      Agree. Kelly could be the next Sunny with her stunning looks, but she should really leave the wrestling aspect of things to others.

      I seriously got excited thinking it was Lita or Trish. According to many sites, both the red head and blonde former divas have been contacted to appear. Crosses fingers*

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

    Yes! So happy she is returning, as far as how the Divas division has been going, she’s really been missed by me. Hopefully things can start happening again because as mentioned, Kelly is a reg and one of the favorites. I still want to see her and AJ do a program together, right now they’re the most popular/talked about Divas with Eve possibly following right behind them. It’d be amazing, even if it turned into a triple threat or something. But anyway, I guess this means Kelly signed that contract deal? Niceeee.

  • http://www.youtube.com/user/DeeMvProductions TaraFan19

    hmm… not sure how I feel about Kelly’s return yet. If they push her to the front of the division right off the bat of her return I won’t be happy but I’m not judging just yet I’ll wait and see what they do with her.

  • lucky1now

    Nice to see her comeback let’s hope she starts something new for the divas
    I was hoping to hear some past divas return though

    • lelloo7

      chyna was confirmed.. i bet lita and trish will be there… possibly a HUGE tag team with past and present divas ??

      • redsandman99

        Where was Chyna confirmed? I know Lita’s there a picture got out of her in the hotel lobby where everyone else has been checking in. Haven’t heard anything about Trish though one would think she would be there. Victoria will at least be backstage she inadvertently confirmed she’s there in St. Louis. Mae Young is there as well.

  • http://twitter.com/RyanRoman0 Ryan

    Dammit, though Sable, Trish or Lita was returning…smh

    Kelly isn’t that hot looking..Eve is beauty like none other but Eve is weird..she has feminist written all over her, too bad Maxine is gone she was so complete haha

    Wonder if Stacey Keibler appears one day

  • AfroJack

    Trish & Lita have also been contacted for RAW1000!!! I hope they accept.

  • SherriShepherdWWE

    when i first read the title and saw the blond hair, i thought it was gonna be like trish, sable, torrie, or god forbid sunny lol, but then i realized that it was just Kelly Kelly

    but on the plus side, i did read that WWE has contacted Lita and Trish to appear on the show, now the only other diva i wanna see on the show is the Original Diva Sable :), i wouldnt care if the show sucked as long as them three were on it, i would be happy !!!!!!

    • http://twitter.com/RyanRoman0 Ryan

      sherri I want Sable soooo bad my dude!! Like no idea! I could care less if the divas don’t wrestle…not like I’m missing anything good anyways, but seeig Trih Lita again and Sable would be holy shit moment for me!!! I always had a wrestling fantasy of seeing Sable vs Stratus back in 2003

      • SherriShepherdWWE

        me toooooo Sable Vs Trish is one feud that i wish had of happened :),

  • TheFallenAngela

    I hope i’m not the only one but i also don’t want to seem rude….but I’m not happy about it but at the same time there probaly maybe more diva action. I just hope she aint as bad in the ring as she was two months ago…………..I Hope we see some debuts/character changes and more/longer diva matches. Kelly isn’t my cup of tea but if she loses some sexy points and gain wrestling points i might just give her some props

    • TheFallenAngela

      Also i want to add……………I WANT TO SEE BETH VS NATTIE

    • gl83

      All those other Divas that are on the main roster, train and practice in the ring before Raw, Smackdown and House Shows. Kelly on the otherhand, hasn’t even stepped foot in the ring during this hiatus of hers. She hasn’t wrestled a match in months. There’s going to be ring rust. And it isn’t like she was a decent wrestler before, so if anything I expect Kelly to be worse in the ring than when she left.

      • lelloo7

        how do u know she haven’t been wrestling ?? just bcz she wasn’t like layla on fcw doesnt mean she did train hard enough.. u don’t see kharma training in the ring do u ?

  • The K@rmic HeeL

    Imagine a brief confrontation between Sable, Lita, and Trish where they bump into each other in the halls? If Chyna were to show up…things would really heat up!

    Or Lita & Trish can be on their androids in the back checking who DivaDirt voted as the top RAW diva and then they get into a classic fight backstage. XD

  • Lily

    I actually forgot she was still in WWE.

  • V1AHHHH

    And not a single crap was given that day!

  • johnny

    Oh Kelly’s been gone I didn’t even notice.

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

    I’m so happy. My girl Kelly is coming back. She still looks sexy as always and her wrestling skills should be improved. I don’t care what the haters say. She is awesome. So watch AJ my girm Kelly is ready to take the throne back. I still love you AJ lol. Buy my girl is back. This just made my day.

    • gl83

      If Kelly’s returning ruins AJ’s storyline, I am going to hate Kelly forever. For once we actually have an interesting Diva who can do it all and if it gets flushed down the toilet just because Kelly comes back, I as well as many other fans are going to have more reasons to hate Kelly aside from the mediocre wrestling, bad acting and bad mic skills.

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

        I don’t think she’ll be part of that. But hopefully she’d get her own storyline. She is basically the top face. She doesn need the title for that. But if she was added I don’t think she would ruin it. It depends on the role wwe would want her to play.

        • gl83

          She could ruin it. Kelly is not good on the mic and she is not a very good actress. Those are two key factors in why the AJ/Bryan storyline has been such a huge success. AJ can talk on the mic and in backstage segments and come off convincing, whereas Kelly comes off sounding rehearsed and robotic. And AJ can tell a story with just her body language and mannerisms alone, Kelly hasn’t. We’ve seen her in several storylines outside of the division and those storylines and her acting in them were horrible. She is nowhere near the level that AJ is and could ruin one of the most interesting and entertaining angles in WWE today.

          Then there’s the dynamic between AJ and Bryan. Adding Kelly into the mix could ruin and mess up the dynamic that those two share and her involvement would add nothing to the storyline. CM Punk is much better than Kelly on the mic and in terms of character/acting and even he came off looking like the thrid wheel to AJ and Bryan at times.

          And it’s easy to see that Kelly is the top Face, look who is her competition. Layla, who’s irrelevant and is basically a transitional champion, Tamina, who has nothing going for her and then there’s A-Fox and Kaitlyn who are basically jobbers.

        • lelloo7

          @GL83 i guess you havent watched the smackdown edition she mainevented… have you ? cz if u did.. you wouldn’t be talking shit … she isn;t bad on the mic.. she just needs some training.. AJ has been doin g it since her fcw ( i think) days.. kelly was given the time on the mic like 4 times in 6 years.. + kelly’s acting depends on the co-worker.. think about it.. she played the terrified role amazingly against kharma.. but didnt with drew since he was such a brick !

  • bxradimus

    Oh barf.

    I was hoping Kelly just fell off the face of the earth.

    • gl83

      We can only hope it’s a one-night only type of deal. The Divas might not have been featured much recently. But the instances in which they have been used, whether it be in segments or matches, have yielded pretty good results. Please don’t ruin it by bringing back Kelly Kelly.

  • EVEROCKS

    Big surprise. (not) I think we all new she would…

  • k2kerw

    So excited to see Kelly again i have missed her so much!!!!

  • aldo

    The break is over…I guees that’s it for Layla and the other divas in the spotlight right? Kharma should return as well and attack Kelly and why not, Layla.

  • http://twitter.com/RyanRoman0 Ryan

    Kelly in main event slot again?? IDK man despite how much everyone calls that a big accomplishment..Yes! It is an accomplishment its something you can be proud of on paper, but if you see the actual match despite it having LayCool and Edge in it, Kelly really wasnt holding her own in the match. Her yelling at Drew McIntyre years back wasnt like something to be proud of either. I would deff keep her in WWE. After all shes Kelly Kelly. The most popular diva right now. I used to think back then WWE Divas = Maria Kanellis..Now WWE DIVAS = Kelly Kelly. The cool thing is how forgivable Kelly is. She can put on a shit match, cut a weak sorry promo, become annoying with screaming but she does it to her best of her ability!! So like its ok and fans will still like Kelly after all that =D
    Kelly would be an awesome heel but problem is that she isnt even good enough in the ring as a face to get her Just Dessert as a bad guy =/

    AJ rocks I digg her! Her style in the ring her ability her spunk n fire and toughness for someone soooo small! Plus how she can go from Nice girl, to pathetic nerdy dork loser chick, to sexy psychotic, to crazy hot all in that order!!! =D
    Love her on the mic love her expressions. This girl is IT in WWE!! Shes rolling with the big boys and she has the chops to back it up…something most divas dont have. I do feel bad for Natalya and Beth but hey Beth is like THE center of the division and at least Natalya has stopped the flatulence ughh…so gross.. Also Im not confident on Alicia Fox..shes a great wrestler but her attitude is so annoying to me at least. Shes not good on the mic is she? And Eve Torres shes semi good in the ring but naaaa…shes good on the mic though and plays a dick riding, kiss up, bitch of a manager VERY well! =D Hope Teddy Long doesnt forget haha

    • lelloo7

      so ur just bashing kelly since u know she’ll steal aj’s spotlight once she shows up !!

      • http://twitter.com/RyanRoman0 Ryan

        Exactly ;D
        You get me. You get me

        • Kim099

          No

  • ILoveKpop

    For some reason i want to see AJ vs Kelly.
    I also want to see Heel Kelly Kelly

  • FashionQueen86

    I don’t miss her at all

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

    Never missed her…shes just forgettable anyway…plus i dont think shes trained at all while gone so shes going to be worse then her usual worse self…..

    • The K@rmic HeeL

      I sort of liked her. She’s cute, but the FB comments are hilarious. They’re spot on with what I first thought when I read the headline. “Too bad it wasn’t a past diva/next time make it a newsworthy post divadirt.etc…” LOL

  • DIVASKO

    With Kelly we can se goodbye to Layla =(

    • lelloo7

      we already said bye to layla !!i honestly cant remember the last time she was on raw… hopefully there’s a storyline with kelly vs layla or something like that

  • queennattie

    Just when I was getting used to her absence… Hahaha :P
