WWE Magazine: What was the most important thing on your mind at the time of this picture?
Kelly Kelly: I was a nervous wreck. I actually had no idea what I was doing — I was just thrown into it. So I realized I just had to be myself, do what I know and hopefully the WWE Universe would like it. If I was able to prepare, I’d probably be dwelling on it too much. I found out what I was doing day by day, so those were crazy times. I had to just go out there and not think about it.
WWE Magazine: How different is Kelly Kelly now from the person in that photo?
Kelly Kelly: I feel like I’ve grown up so much. I’ve grown up in front of the entire WWE Universe, basically. Each week, they’ve gotten to see me and know me inside the ring and out. It’s been me 100-percent. I’ve always been myself. It’s been cool to be able to grow, and I’m not a kid anymore. If you’ve watched from day one until now, you can see that I’m a much improved person. I think it would be really hard to be someone else.
