Stacy Keibler is finally opening up about her wrestling career.
It seemed that many in the entertainment industry had all but forgotten that the host of Supermarket Superstar was once a leggy WWE Diva–until Keibler appeared as a guest on The Sam Roberts Show this past Sunday.
In addition to promoting her upcoming show, Stacy was asked about being a former wrestler.
“I was a huge fan. That’s how I got into it,” Keibler said. “I just started getting involved and going to all of the events and holding the signs and got into it.”
Keibler, of course, won the Nitro Girls competition in 1999 to become a dancer for WCW. She explained how it all went down, saying, “The fans voted for me and I thought I was going to dance with the girls once a week and then a month later they asked me to be a character on the show and sent me to the wrestling school while I was being a character. I kind of had to learn as I was going…hence why I was being so terrible,” Keibler joked.
Stacy also played the role of one of Vince McMahon‘s many “assistants” during her time in the WWE. She revealed she was actually scheduled to make out with the Chairman!
“The day I was supposed to make out with Vince McMahon something happened with Steve Austin being accused of beating his wife, whatever it was, we x-ed our segment out,” Keibler said.
Stacy pretty much did it all in the WWE and faced her fair share of tough competitors. On who was the toughest, she said, “Lita was pretty tough. I got a lot of brusies. But we became good friends.”
Stacy also opens up about being “The Duchess of Dudleyville”, her table bump, her first physical activity in wrestling and whether or not George Clooney is a wrestling fan. Check out the interview below:
