Stacey Keibler urged to return to wresting

Stacy Keibler has been told to return to wrestling now she has split from George Clooney.

The 'Supermarket Superstar' host enjoyed a seven-year career as a professional wrestler before quitting in 2006 and her friend Mickie James - who is the current TNA Women's Champion - says the time is right for her to return to the ring now she's single again.

Mickie - who worked with Stacy in WWE - exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "I'm sure she could return to wrestling if she wanted to. I mean, maybe she does now that her and Clooney have called it quits. I don't know. Maybe she'll come back. But she could absolutely come back if she wanted to."

Stacy was hugely popular with fans when she wrestled mainly due to her trademark ring entrance which saw her slowly entering the ring by placing her 42in legs through the ropes and wiggling her butt. She also competed in numerous novelty bouts such as bikini contests.

Mickie - who has just released her second country album 'Somebody's Gonna Pay' - is convinced Stacy's fabulous figure would make her a hit with grapple addicts again.

She added: "Stacy's strength was never that she was the best wrestler it was that she had super-long legs and she was absolutely stunning and she was a great character."

Stacy recently admitted she loved her time as a WWE Diva and has always been surprised by the amount of Hollywood executives who know about her grappling past.

She recently said: "I remember when I first moved to Los Angeles, a lot of the executives at the film studios were big wrestling fans. I'd be set up with a general meeting with someone, thinking they had no idea, and they'd say, 'What is it that you're doing right now?' And they knew everything!"

Mickie is heading to the UK next January for the 'TNA IMPACT Wrestling' tour. Tickets are on sale now from gigsandtours.com and ticketmaster.co.uk
