Former WWE star Candice Michelle spoke about a special clause she had in her WWE contract that allowed her to pursue outside ventures while doing an interview with Wrestling Inc.
Here is what she had to say:
“So I had a clause in my contract which allowed me to do that. Because I was coming from Hollywood, I just had a different type of contract from the average wrestler who comes from the indie scene or comes from the wrestling school. My website was off-limits and certain things on there were off limits that they weren’t allowed to take away from me or have control over, and GoDaddy just happened to be one of those.”
“I definitely took heat coming into the business, but that was mostly because I didn’t come up in the indie scene, or the wrestling school or do the work that way. My work was coming up in Hollywood and doing it a different way, and that was kind of frowned on by other people. However, the work is the work. I remember this conversation. I mean, I didn’t know my GoDaddy commercial would be the biggest hit of the Super Bowl. I didn’t know they would take it down, and I woke up the next morning. I think I had 96 voicemails, and I was so worried. I thought somebody in my family died, and I started listening to them and it was just interview request after interview request. And I was like, ‘what happened?’ I didn’t even know what happened. Then I later find out they pulled it, and it was all the controversy over the commercial. And then I show up to RAW, and they’re like, ‘You gotta tell us about this stuff.’ And I’m like, ‘I didn’t know. I didn’t know I’d be the headline of the Super Bowl.’ I was happy I got a national commercial, and so they kind of sat me down, let us know a little bit more, which obviously, I would have if I had a clue.”
