Kelly and her...er... Balls
On the August 7, 2007 episode of ECW, Balls went against The Miz in a losing effort. During and after the match, it appeared that Kelly Kelly was concerned about him.Over the weeks that followed, he attempted to ask her out and flirted with her backstage, but was interrupted by The Miz, Brooke, and Layla before Kelly could get a word in. Regardless, Kelly still showed interest in him each week, wishing him good luck before his match and cheering him on during his match. He asked if she would go out with him to which she could not respond due to The Miz taking her backstage.Weeks later, however, Kelly asked him out, starting an on-screen relationship. ( from wikipedia ) The storyline is said to have been the brainchild of Dusty Rhodes ( fat ugly guy gets the girl... yup, that has Dusty's sweaty paws all over it ), and perhaps I give away too much about myself when i say it was one of my favourite storylines of that year. Who didn't wanna see the big guy, the guy from the wrong side of the tracks get the girl? It was like a modern day John Hughes ( pre-Home Alone ) movie playing out on our tv screens. Sigh... I'm such a sap.
