History Trivia / Kaitlyn

Go To



* DearNegativeReader: She never minded doing the sillier Diva segments like costume matches or {{Fanservice}} stuff - suggesting in a shoot interview that some fans wanted to see those things.



* WagTheDirector: Her winning the title from Eve was supposed to happen at the 2013 ''Royal Rumble'', but Eve pressured the office into having it on the 25th Anniversary of Raw - as that was in Kaitlyn's hometown of Houston.



** It's unknown how her career would have gone for two reasons. The first is that NXT Season 3 was going to be a mixture of male and female rookies (meaning the likely candidates would have been AJ Lee, Naomi, Maxine or possibly Aksana). Then Aloisa was dropped from the competition, giving Kaitlyn a chance to make it to TV.



** Who knows how Kaitlyn's career would have gone had it not been for the infamous battle royal? A long standing rumour was that Wrestling/{{Eve|Torres}} had been scripted to win the battle royal, and eliminated herself by mistake. Kaitlyn confirmed these rumours after her departure, claiming that she was told they had to write her out of the storyline - but she lobbied to be included in it anyway.
*** Speaking of her career, one has to wonder how would she have fared if she hadn't retired in 2014. Just over a year after that, WWE has since saw an influx of highly talented female wrestlers debuting.

to:

* WriterRevolt: She slowly started rebelling against WWE's attempt at giving her a GirlinessUpgrade. During her feud with Eve, she abandoned her "sparkly spandex" in favor of street clothes and more tomboyish outfits.


* AdoredByTheNetwork: Well by Triple H anyway. Kaitlyn says that Triple H always lobbied for her, especially against Vince.

* BreakupBreakout: Averted. After the Wrestling/ChickBusters' break up, AJ was involved in high-profile angles with Wrestling/CMPunk, [[Wrestling/BryanDanielson Daniel Bryan]], and Wrestling/{{Kane}}, was made the General Manager of ''Raw'' on the 1000th episode on July 23, 2012 until October 22, 2012, and afterwards remained relevant with her feud with Wrestling/JohnCena and her involvement with Wrestling/DolphZiggler; while Kaitlyn didn't do anything remotely as important, but she then entered a feud over the Divas Championship alongside Wrestling/{{Layla}} and Wrestling/EveTorres, which ended in Kaitlyn winning the Divas title at ''Raw'''s 20th Year Anniversary on January 14, 2013.



* ExecutiveMeddling: Was pressured into being more girly when she first debuted. She talked about wearing an outfit that she described as 'tomboyish but still sexy' - but being told she wasn't allowed to wear it. Likewise AJ wasn't allowed to wear her Chuck Taylors at first, management preferring the girls to wear sparkly dresses.

** She was planned to turn heel and join Beth Phoenix and Natalya as the third member of the Divas of Doom. If you watch Kaitlyn's matches on NXT Redemption and against the DOD on Smackdown, commentators definitely foreshadow the planned angle with suggestions as to how Kaitlyn would fare if Beth took her under their wing. Likewise Kelly Kelly and Eve had acquired the newly babyfaced Alicia Fox as their third member, clearly setting up a 6-Diva feud. But the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FD3oQRzBAsk segment showing Kaitlyn turning heel]] was cut from the broadcast. According to a former writer, it was planned to be re-shot but "some other Diva drama" happened backstage and Vince stopped the entire Divas of Doom storyline.
** The Booker T assistant storyline was pitched by her and would have ended with her becoming the assistant. The storyline was okayed but at the last minute was changed to Eve becoming the assistant instead.

** She was meant to be the one to interfere in Dolph Ziggler's match at the 2011 ''Royal Rumble'', getting into a CatFight with Vickie Guerrero. Then they changed their minds and had Wrestling/KellyKelly do it instead. It's unknown if Kaitlyn would have also defended the title in the main event of Smackdown like Kelly did.
** There were rumours that Layla was going to turn heel on her and lead an 8-Diva tag team match at [=WrestleMania=] 29. They shot a couple of segments hinting at it, but the storyline was abruptly dropped and the Divas didn't make it to the card at all. Layla did however turn heel on her months later during her feud with AJ.

* OneOfUs: Seems more into celebrities like Creator/ChuckNorris and daytime talk shows like ''{{Series/Maury}}'' compared to AJ. Is also a massive fan of ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons''.


* In 2013 she was personally asked to grant a wish for the Make A Wish Foundation - the first time a WWE Diva had been requested since KellyKelly was still with the company.

* ActorInspiredElement: Her secret admirer was originally scripted to just send her flowers and jewellery, with stock love notes in there. Kaitlyn requested that they be changed to something she herself would want to receive. See GeekyTurnOn on the main page. It also added a bit of FridgeBrilliance to the story when AJ was revealed to be behind the letters; who else but Kaitlyn's best friend would know exactly what she would want to receive?

** She also suggested that Wrestling/TaminaSnuka be the first one she feuded with as Divas' Champion. They had been working together on live events for months, and Kaitlyn wanted a bigger woman to work with.



** She mistakenly set a Tweet instead of a Direct Message complaining about the entrance music she got after re-debuting on Smackdown. Presumably this is the reason it was changed to the "Spin The Bottle" theme.

* PlayingAgainstType: When NXT was retooled into a developmental show, Kaitlyn appeared exclusively as a heel. Effectively the only time she had properly played one in her WWE career.



** Her initial name in FCW was 'Ricky Vaughn' but was changed to Kaitlyn when she was chosen to appear on NXT Season 3.

* ContractualPurity: Averted. Despite having done racy pictures in the past, she was never affected by them. Ironically she had replaced Aloisa because the latter was found with erotic fetish photos.
* CreatorBacklash:
** Wasn't a fan of the Series/TotalDivas vs True Divas storyline - mostly because she was still a {{Face}} but teamed with heels and found working the matches difficult as a result.
** She hated the on/off again feud with {{Wrestling/Layla}} that never got properly started, finding it weird that they tried to portray them as best friends just because they had teamed together in a few random matches.



* RealLifeWritesThePlot: She was {{Brother Chuck}}ed after ''[=SummerSlam=]'' 2013 due to health issues, and didn't reappear until a few months later.
