Wrestling: Kaitlyn
Celeste Beryl Bonin, born on October 7, 1986, is a professional wrestler, who worked for WWE as Kaitlyn. She was a contestant on the third (but first all-female) season of WWE NXT which she won. She's a former model and body builder. She's a one time WWE Divas Champion.

In January 2014, she left the WWE.


Tropes associated with Kaitlyn include:

  • Aborted Arc:
    • Kaitlyn's little romance with Dolph Ziggler got dropped when she was moved to the main roster.
    • Her heel turn became one after Vince wasn't happy with the segment and ended up scrapping the storyline altogether.
    • During her reign as Divas Champion, there was subtle hints to that Layla was turning heel and going to feud with her over the Divas Title. For some reason this was scrapped. Could be because she and AJ Lee had this feud going. Layla eventually did turn heel on her months later, only this time she wasn't champion anymore so it made no sense.
    • Had this Ship Tease going with Cody Rhodes. Once again, this was dropped.
  • Absolute Cleavage: On the night her secret admirer was to be revealed, funnily enough.
  • All Girls Want Bad Boys:
  • Amazonian Beauty: Before joining the WWE, she was a fitness model.
  • Arch-Enemy: The Divas of Doom (Beth Phoenix and Natalya), Maxine, Vickie Guerrero, Eve Torres, Big E Langston and AJ Lee.
  • Armor-Piercing Slap: Was on the receiving end on one from AJ, when she told AJ to get over the fact Daniel Bryan had used her. Also delivered one to Big E Langston when he tried to stop her attacking AJ during the contract signing for their title match.
  • Batman Gambit: Pulled a pretty good one on Eve to win the Divas' Championship. After a sequence of the two beating on each other outside the ring, she ran around to the other corner to re-enter. Eve, who had rolled back into the ring, didn't see her follow on her side and assumed she'd never come back. As soon as she turned around, Kaitlyn hit her with a spear for the pinfall victory.
  • Break the Cutie: AJ (a victim of it herself) is determined to do this to her.
  • Breakup Breakout: Averted; After what appears to be the Chick Busters' break up, and A.J's involvement in high-profile angles with CM Punk, Daniel Bryan, and Kane, and being made the General Manager of RAW on the 1000th episode on July 23rd 2012 until October 22nd 2012, but still have remained relevant with her feud with John Cena and her involvement with Dolph Ziggler. And Kaitlyn didn't do anything remotely as important for a while, but she then entered a feud over the Divas Championship alongside Layla and Eve Torres, which ended in Kaitlyn winning the Divas title at Raw's 20th Year Anniversary on January 14, 2013.
    • They're now in a feud with each other, which actually allowed the divas screen time — well, them and the new Total Divas! show.
  • Bullying a Dragon: Done knowingly, to show AJ she wasn't afraid of her. AJ would previously snap and attack people when they called her "crazy" (which Kaitlyn had done once before by accident). Kaitlyn deliberately called her "Looney Tunes". AJ dared her to say it again, to which Kaitlyn responded "that's all, folks". Technically a subversion as AJ didn't attack her afterwards but it was Kaitlyn who attacked her from behind after seemingly walking off.
  • Butt Monkey: Both she and AJ were mostly used to make Beth Phoenix and Natalya look strong.
  • Buxom Is Better
  • Catfight: With AJ on the second episode of NXT, and with Vickie Guerrero nearly every other episode. And off course, her feud with AJ is filled with this.
  • Cool Big Sister/Cool Teacher: Natalya was this to her and AJ before she went bad and abandoned them.
  • Cute Bruiser: So she's a lot smaller than her replacement, but no less of a power wrestler.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Flashes this every once in a while.
  • Demoted to Extra: Played straight at first, as she was hardly seen on Smackdown for a while, and was relegated to WWE NXT, were she actually got mike time, storylines and time to wrestle. Then, all storylines for NXT abruptly ended, and for a weeks before the retooled version of NXT started, they simply had wrestling a la Superstars. She then reappeared on Smackdown, were she became mixed in the Divas title hunt alongside Layla and Eve, before finally becoming the Divas Champion. Then after she lost the Divas title to AJ and their feud ended, she disappeared again.
  • Everyone Loves Blondes: Kaitlyn who apparently was both Homecoming Queen and Class Clown in the same year.
  • Even the Girls Want Her: From Kaitlyn's Facebook page...
    Kaitlyn: "so now i'm single :("
    Ryse Ouellet (Maryse): ‎-,-' ; my poor Celeste you need to see me ;)
  • Expository Hairstyle Change: Between her time on NXT and reappearance as Natalya's prodigy, her hair grew to waist length and had a more bleached look to it.
  • Canon Name: "ChickBusters" originally was not. They joked about it on Twitter (naming themselves after the similar tag team The Dude Bustersnote ) before it eventually became official and acknowledged on TV.
  • Geeky Turn-On: Her secret admirer sent her messages based around Simpsons references and other things Kaitlyn was into.
  • Genki Girl: From NXT season 3 onward. We were expecting the giant brute Aloisia and out came this smiling, dancing goof.
  • Girl Next Door: Defied, claiming she lived three doors down and put a firecracker in everyone's mailbox every 4th of July. Referenced again in 2012 on an episode of NXT says that Kaitlyn refers to herself as a girl next door. William Regal on commentary promptly lampshades this with "I wish she lived next door to me!"
  • Girliness Upgrade: Inverted. In her shoot interview she revealed that management initially wanted all the NXT Divas to be more girly, sticking them in sparkly dresses and not letting them look too tomboyish. As time went on, Kaitlyn's outfits and ring attire gradually became a little more tomboyish.
  • Girls with Moustaches: Has/had this thing with wearing black handlebar mustaches.
  • Heel-Face Turn: On WWE NXT.
    • Face-Heel Turn: Appeared exclusively as a heel on the new NXT from Full Sail University without explanation.
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: With AJ, in and out of storyline.
  • Hollywood Nerd: Stated in the July 2013 edition of WWE Magazine that she was in her high school's chess club.
  • Important Haircut: Went fully brunette shortly after she got engaged. Added blonde back into her hair some time after leaving the company.
  • The Lad-ette: Compared to her partners, AJ Lee and Natalya anyway. It would be even more so off screen, going by her shoots.
  • Mistreatment-Induced Betrayal: Why she turned on Vickie Guerrero.
  • Multicolored Hair: Blonde and black.
  • Muscles Are Meaningful: When it was suggested Matt Striker was bias after criticizing Kaitlyn on commentary, he responded by saying he loved her and wanted her to give him little thick legged babies.
  • Pintsized Powerhouse: 5'5" (1.65 meters) tall, strong enough to dead lift 300 pounds
  • Put on a Bus: She appeared on Smackdown for about a month after her debut, but then disappeared.
  • Ramming Always Works: Currently the Spear as her finisher.
  • Right Behind Me: On the March 25, 2013 edition of Raw, in a discussion with Team Hell No she dropped the "C-bomb" (no, not that one...) when talking about AJ, who was hiding right around the corner. AJ reacted to this about how you'd expect, attacking her.
  • Running Gag: AJ still has her Savage Garden CD.
    • Kaitlyn still hasn't read AJ's screenplay, either.
  • She Cleans Up Nicely: To a much more limited extent (she was presented as a clumsy ditz for the most part compared to the sex appeal or general attractiveness of the rest of the NXT divas).
  • Ship Tease:
    • With Johnny Curtis
    • Had one with Cody Rhodes during a kissing contest. Later one she this was teased again, but was dropped for unknown reasons.
  • Shout-Out: Her ring attire since Survivor Series 2012 is clearly meant to be a nod to Trish Stratus and her ring gear circa 2006.
  • Throw the Dog a Bone: Thank the lord she and AJ got wins against Maxine and Tamina on NXT to keep them from jobber hell.
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: Kaitlyn's whole schtick as the "Hybrid Diva" is a sort of defiance of this, claiming it is possible for a woman to be both a Tomboy and a Girly Girl. Kaitlyn has plenty of Lad Ette tendencies and interests but still has a love for some stereotypical girly things too. Her post-WWE plans reflect this too; re-entering the fitness world but also designing a clothing line.
  • Unnecessary Roughness: Some of the backstage brawls between her and AJ have been extremely vicious. AJ one threw her headfirst into a stainless steel drinking fountain. Probably a result of AJ and Celeste's real life friendship making them trust each other that much more.
  • Wardrobe Malfunction: Suffered from this on an episode on Raw, where her top slipped and you could for a second catch a glimpse of one of her breasts.
  • We Used to Be Friends: Broke up as tag team after AJ's sanity started slipping. She even stated that was hard being her friend when A.J. was the way she was.
  • X Meets Y: Kaitlyn says that Triple H once described her as a mixture of the Amazon-like Beth Phoenix and the glamorous model like Kelly Kelly.
