Kelly Klein

ROH star Kelly Klein spoke with Wrestledelphia about how she got into professional wrestling. You can read that highlight below:

“I was singing in a local rock band and I was also waitressing. I invited people I work with to come see one of my band’s gigs, and one of the other waiters said I’ll come see your band if you bring your band to see me wrestle. I was like, ah, what the heck, I’m not doing anything. So he came to see my band and I went to this indy wrestling event. I had no clue what to expect. Two of my friends and I went and I was instantly hooked.

I immediately started asking people how can I train, how can I get in the ring. What really drew me to it was that I grew up as an athlete but I also grew up performing and doing music and theater. A lot of times those two conflicted because I was very committed to both, and both of those genres wanted my full commitment. There were times when I had to choose one or the other. So when I saw this live wrestling event, it was the first time I saw something where I didn’t have to choose. It brought together all the aspects of things I love to do.”
