Vince McMahon: Kelly Kelly reveals WWE CEO taught her to strip tease for her exhibitionist gimmick during her WWE debut back in 2006.
Kelly Kelly recently revealed that it was Vince McMahon who taught her to strip tease. The lessons were for her exhibitionist gimmick back in 2006.
The former Divas champion made the revelation while speaking to Chris Van Vliet about her time in WWE. She said:
“Paul Heyman called me and said we have this idea and it’s this gimmick. You’re gonna come out and you’re gonna do this striptease. And then your jealous boyfriend is gonna come out and wrap you in a towel.”
“Vince is like ‘It’ll be fine, I’ll teach you the moves’. I was like ‘well, whatever I have to do get my foot in the door’. “My first day, I remember Triple H and Vince were all in the room and they were just like ‘alright, these are just the basic moves that we need.’
“I’m like sitting there and I’m watching Vince McMahon, who I watched when I was 13 years old and I just idolised, and he’s got a chair and he swings his jacket around.”
Kelly Kelly debuted for the ECW brand on June 13, 2006. She became the youngest Diva on the WWE roster, aged 19. Her character was introduced as an exhibitionist. Every week she would be interrupted by her on-screen boyfriend, Mike Knox, who came to the stage and covered her with a towel before dragging her backstage. Her stripping became a weekly segment known as Kelly’s Exposé and usually followed the same routine. Kelly went on to win her first WWE Divas Championship by defeating Bella on the Power to the People special edition of Raw on June 20 2011. She left the WWE in 2012.
