Kelly Klein Discusses How She Broke Into the Wrestling Business and Joining the ROH Roster

ROH star Kelly Klein, recentlyspoke about joining the ROH roster. Below are some highlights.

Klein on breaking into the business: ďI was singing in a local rock band and I was also waitressing. I invited people I work with to come see one of my bandís gigs, and one of the other waiters said Iíll come see your band if you bring your band to see me wrestle. I was like, ah, what the heck, Iím not doing anything. So he came to see my band and I went to this indie 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 didnít have to choose. It brought together all the aspects of things I love to do.Ē

Klein on joining ROH: ďI was excited because a big part of something that held me back for a long time is I didnít go out and take chances. I just didnít think I was ready. But you never think youíre ready. It got to the point where I needed to go do it and just push myself to take the risk. If you never ask the question, the answer is always no. I went and did the tryout and I was proud of myself. I had done what I could do, and I thought I had done well. Whether other people were better or worse than me had nothing to do with it. I went and pushed myself out of my comfort zone and put myself out there. Then I was given another opportunity to do even more and show what I could do at an event and in front of a crowd was a big accomplishment for me.Ē
