Kelly Kelly participated in a virtual signing presented by The Asylum Wrestling Store. Talking about Kelly’s career, she shared that her nerves and things in her mind would push her to throw up before every match. She said,

That’s like the one thing that I miss is just walking through the curtain and hearing people and hearing the ‘holla holla’ and people chanting ‘Kelly Kelly’. Every day and I’ll tell you a funny little thing, right before every match, I would get sick. Like I would throw up in a trash can right before because I was so nervous. All your nerves are — you’re just like, ‘Oh my, I want the crowd to like me tonight, I hope my match — I don’t wanna mess up.’ [transcription via postwrestling]

She described the emotions running through her mind but also relished running through the curtain into the arena. She said that it was relief and excitement for her.
