  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE.

Barbara Jean "Barbie" Blank is a female American professional wrestler, best known as Kelly Kelly who has competed exclusively in WWE on all three brands, first on ECW, then Raw, then Smackdown and is now currently on Raw. She was first signed in 2006 after being spotted in a catalogue (she was signed at the same time as fellow diva Alicia Fox though debuted on TV years before the latter). She was introduced first in a weekly striptease segment called "Kelly's Expose" and then formed "Extreme Expose" with Brooke Adams and Layla El, beginning a weekly dance segment on ECW. After the group split Kelly began to take a more active role in the ring and was featured in more matches. Her hard work paid off in 2011 when she became the Divas' Champion for the first time.

This wrestler provides examples of:


  "I don't want to be around someone that takes pleasure on beating on other people. Grow up!"

    • The above line was lambasting McIntyre for attacking Trent Barreta from behind after losing a match to him on Smackdown.
      • The above line can also be viewed as a little hypocritical of her, as around the same time she and Kaitlyn attacked LayCool from behind before a tag match.
  • Alliterative Name
    • Using the same name twice goes beyond that. Her real name is too - Barbie Blank.
  • Ambiguous Innocence While she wasn't ever against the fans, she has done some questionable things. Such as using The Miz to protect herself and Randy Orton from Kane. Miz and John Morrison taking revenge was really understandable.
  • Arch Enemy: Layla. A backstage segment at Extreme Rules 2011 implied they're over that now.
  • Armour Piercing Slap: To Dolph Ziggler.
  • Ascended Extra: It wasn't until 2009, three years after her debut, that she actually got her first title match, and not until 2010 that she was in an actual title feud.
  • Bastard Boyfriend: Her angle with Mike Knox.
  • Beauty Is Bad: Has improved substantially in the ring from when she debuted several years ago (see Took a Level In Badass) but she still 'suffers' from looking much more like a supermodel than a female wrestler (read: she's gorgeous) and seems to catch a lot of flak for it.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: She's all smiles when walking down the ramp but once the match starts, she can be quite aggressive.
  • Break the Cutie: Good lord, nearly every non-title storyline she's been in. Mike Knox abused her, Kane was after her blood, Vickie Guerrero fired her. And that brings us to...
  • Butt Monkey: For years if anyone wanted to get over as a legit heel, all they had to do was pick on poor little Kelly. Natalya and Beth Phoenix are the most infamous examples. It was expected when Kharma debuted that Kelly would be her first victim. But then Kharma attacked Maryse everyone else instead.
  • Cat Fight: Two with Vickie Guerrero, on PPV nonetheless.
  • Demoted to Extra: Strangely enough, since losing the Divas' title, her appearances have been sporadic at best. The Divas are only guaranteed a few minutes per show anyway, but it's somewhat jarring, as she went from showing up every week to hardly showing up at all.
  • Distaff Counterpart: To John Cena, according to some.
  • Dumb Blonde: In her initial personality on ECW. This has been completely dropped now.
  • Everyone Loves Blondes: She is currently the only blonde diva in WWE who has never been a heel.
  • Fragile Speedster
  • Getting Hot in Here
  • Girl Posse: Brooke and Layla, when they were Extreme Expose.
  • Gosh Dang It to Heck: Sadly her first real promo against Vickie was slightly marred when the most offensive insult she could give on PG television was "a power hungry Witch with a Capital B".
  • Hidden Depths: Looks like your average eye candy bimbo but is very athletic and is known for being very daring, taking some sick bumps more than a few times, including getting hit in the face by The Sandman's kendo stick.
  • Informed Attractiveness: We get it, Lawler, you like her.
  • Lovely Angels: With Eve Torres
  • Matzo Fever: Is Jewish herself and this was acknowledged when Matt Stryker called her "the hottest Hebrew in the world".
  • Ms. Fanservice
  • Pretty in Mink: Her Halloween costume in 2007 consisted of a big furry pimp coat and hat.
  • Recycled Soundtrack: The first version of her theme "Holla" was originally made for Candice Michelle.
  • Really Gets Around: According to Randy Orton on a radio interview, "I could name 10 guys that have 'method acted' with Kelly Kelly"
  • Retcon: Her three-minute match with Beth on Smack Down was announced as a non-title match but was retconned into being her title rematch the next week as a way to allow Eve to become the new contender.
    • Fixed though when she was given another title match against Beth at TLC.
  • Shoot the Shaggy Dog: Her big rampage of rage after losing the title to Beth got ended rather abruptly two weeks later with a three-minute match on Smack Down and Eve randomly became the number one contender instead.
  • Stripperiffic: She seems to zig zag through this. Some of her outfits are more provocative than others but most of the time she isn't any more exposed than the other divas.
  • The Dog Bites Back: After all the crap she's gone through in WWE (see the Butt Monkey and Break the Cutie entries) is it any wonder that she slowly started becoming more aggressive after becoming the Divas champion, then finally snapped after she lost the title?
  • Took a Level In Badass: Went from being glorified eye candy at the start of her career (arguably more so than most Divas) to being a Divas champion and a decent wrestler by 2011. Paired with equally (or more) competent competitors, she can actually put on pretty good matches now (see below)
    • How about her match with Beth Phoenix at Summerslam 2011? Holy crap, when has Kelly been able to put on a match like that?
      • And the rematch with Beth at Night Of Champions 2011 was even better.
      • Her Roaring Rampage of Revenge against Beth Phoenix after losing the Diva's Championship at Hell In The Cell 2011 thanks to Natalya braining her with a microphone while the referee wasn't looking. This finally helped her overcome Good Is Boring and gave her some depth.
  • Unstoppable Rage: The Monday after she lost the Diva title and she explodes on Beth Phoenix, which mostly consisted of Kelly screeching loudly and slamming Beth's head on the announcer's table multiple times. After a while, even her tag partner Eve is trying to pull her off of Beth.
  • We Used to Be Friends: With Eve Torres since the latter recently Took a Level In Jerkass.
  • What Could Have Been: They were certainly going for some kind of storyline with Kharma which had to be dropped when the latter got pregnant.
  • When She Smiles: Quoting Jerry Lawler "put on your sunglasses, Kelly Kelly's smiling".
  • Wild Card: If you look at her in the ring closely, she's actually very heelish. She's very aggressive, does a lot of stomping and face smashing and even uses an illegal submission hold. Can be a bit of Mood Whiplash when she goes from the smiling Girl Next Door during her entrance to the aggressive ghetto girl.
