Syracuse, N.Y. -- Barbie Blank, formerly known as WWE diva Kelly Kelly, will stop in at the Syracuse Crunch game on Saturday when the team hosts the Bridgeport Sound Tigers at 7 p.m.
Blank first appeared on the relaunched Extreme Championship Wrestling (ECW) in 2005 as an exhibitionist and joined the WWE later that year starting out as a ring announcer and referee before becoming a wrestler. Blank made her WWE debut on ECW in June 2006 under the name Kelly Kelly at 19 years old, becoming the youngest WWE diva on the roster.After taking a break from wrestling in 2012, Blank returned to the WWE in 2017. She was honored as one of the historic women in WWE on the Raw 25 Years special. In July of 2019, Blank became the first woman in history to win the 24/7 Champion, making her the first and only woman to hold both the WWE Diva Championship and the 24/7 Championship.
Outside of wrestling, Blank has been featured in various music videos and television roles. She was a cast member on the E! reality television series WAGS from 2015 to 2017 and made her acting debut on Days of Our Lives on Jan. 30, 2017.
As part of her appearance at the Crunch, Blank will drop the ceremonial first puck. She will also be available for autographs in the Slapshot Tailgate Zone during the first intermission.
The team will hold a pregame meet-and-greet with Blank in the All Who Served Club beginning at 6 p.m. A two pack with access to the pregame meet-and-greet and two tickets to the Crunch game is $90, while a four pack is on sale for $150.
