Rob Feinstein Buries Barbie Blank’s Agent After Deal To Book The Former WWE Diva Goes South

Rob Feinstein is very upset at Barbie Blank, formerly known as Kelly Kelly, after a deal to book her went south. The following was posted on his Facebook page:

“I have never buried anyone in the wrestling business publicly if a deal goes wrong. Well in this case I want to inform anybody who might be a fan of Barbie Banks (FKA Kelly Kelly) on how her manager conducts business. To say I am pissed is a understatement. This is no way reflect Barbie Banks FKA Kelly Kelly.

“About 6 weeks ago we struck a verbal deal to bring her into Legends of the Ring. We were told by her manger that she was going to be able to do outside projects while she was still under WWE contract. It really made no sense but she told me that she was in the progress of getting her a new deal that would allow this. She told me that we had a done deal and we agreed on terms. We just never signed a deal because she wanted to wait until she got a new contract which I was told would be a week.

“A week went by and than I was told that because of the holiday labor day I would have to wait another week. When that week passed I was told that Barbie had to do something personal and we would have to wait another week to see if she was medically cleared to make it to our show. To me that is when things got fishy. I informed her manager that two weeks ago you told me we had a deal and we were just waiting for the paper work to go thru. Now things seemed fishy. Well later that week I was informed that she was not going to be able to make it because WWE at the time was not giving her another contract. Honestly none of this made sense to me but I thought that maybe it was true because I have heard she was trying to get a new deal to do outside projects.

“So after 3 weeks or so of being put on hold finally her agent told me the deal was dead and we would have to wait until March to book her. We left everything on great terms even though I was pissed for being put thru the windmill for 3 weeks.

“I went out and booked Shane Helms instead which is great.

“On Friday I get a call from her agent again out of the blue asking me if its to late to book Kelly for Legends of the Ring and now she was able to do it. I told her I only had two weeks now to promote this and I wanted a better rate. I also had to talk to the promoter of Legends of the Ring and get his approval since I once already told him I had her and than had to tell him I lost her. I called up James who is always professional and told him that I could get her again and that I would feel more comfortable if he talked to her agent with me to confirm everything.

“We had a three way call and we came to terms on money, the times and everything. All we needed to do was sign off on the deal. She than asked me for the address of the venue and the times and everything you would put into a contract. I told her I would sign it as soon as I looked it over and we agreed on the phone I would be able to announce this today.

“A hour after we talked I was informed by the agent that someone called with in the hour that we struck our deal and offered Kelly more money that weekend for another event. She than basically tried to hold me up for more money asking well cant I match the deal and I told her no way we already verbally comitted to a deal.

“The professional thing to do here was to tell the other party you already stuck a deal for that date and you would work with them in the future. That is how you conduct proper business in wrestling. A deal is a deal and especially in this business you stick to your word.

“She than told me she had to talk to Barbie and she would call me back. Well with in 4 minutes I got a text no call…..just a text saying that she talked to Barbie and that Barbie decided to go with the other guy. It was obvious she never talked to her as many people in that circle told me that it was so wrong to do. I also want to point out that I had given her at least 10 other dates at the time. For the record her asking price is 10k a shot…you do the match….We had alot of money on the table over the next 7 months with her.

“I informed James of the situation and to say he was not happy was a understatement. James texted her and tried to get her to call him but she refused saying that we never had a deal which was a total lie.

“We had a deal, we agreed and everything was set. Like I said in wrestling when you verbally committ and tell someone your drawing up a contract its a deal. I told her agent that I have worked with everyone from the Rock which I had at my store before, to every big name in the business and that this was a first. Of course she did not reply and I just wanted to let everyone know that because of this the fans of her will not be getting to meet her at the upcoming legends convention.

“I will never work with her agent again unless she gives us the proper apology and does business the right way.

“I never like to work with agents in wrestling for this reason. They do not understand the wrestling business and usually end up costing their clients money, in this case ALOT of money.

“I was not going to pay her full price because we had a deal set because of all the dates but now that is all off the table. So if you book her beware of what your getting yourself into.

    Actually he’s mad at her manager not at her..

  • Grammar Police

    This guy's story is almost unbearable to read. Incorrect usage of "than" all over the place! "Than" is a comparative, "then" is a transition!

    • ThisGuy

      This guys knows.

  • Adamtrace

    Nothing’s a deal til it’s signed = business 101

  • Streamroller

    Should get David Otunga to sue.

    • proud

      Who could afford him? He hasn’t lost a case surely he would earn every bit as much with his court cases as his WWE downside guarantee

  • Laura

    I completely agree with you. Go complain to someone who might actually care, you whiney little baby. No wonder I don't attend LOTR events. It's run by a fat crybaby!

    • Frenchfry

      what are you, 3 years old?

  • Patrick Peralta

    Barbie Blank"s agent maybe trying to get as much money as possible and doing bussiness the wrong way….but I agree while how the agent does bussiness is wrong Rob crying about it on Facebook makes him look bad…..and all so unprofessional.

    how about next time thy try to get a hold of Barbie Blank ( or anyone else) in person the next time they try to do bussiness. That might work bettter skip past her agent.

    I’d be stoked, I’d much rather see Helms than someone who thinks “Barbour blank” is a good idea for a name.

  • Johnny Lane

    The guy's illiterate, how did he get into that business?

  • Doug

    I have never understood why a majority of people crap all over the truth. A person directly involved in a situation, decides to make the process and results of the situation, public for fans and any others that might be interested and he gets slandered, heckled, and made fun of for his trouble? Why? If you don't like him or respect him because he hurt you in some way, I can understand your dissatisfaction with him, but if he has never hurt you, why do you feel that you need to respond to his story at all? People these days hate the truth, and they completely disrespect people who publicly tell the truth. You can see versions of this same response all throughout our lives. It is completely wrong for telling the truth in a public fashion to be considered wrong in any way. Maybe if he would have cussed and called her names all of the kids would then accept the info quietly.

    Honestly, it's Kelly goddamn Kelly who was useless in WWE at everything she ever did. Her never getting booked again is a good thing for the industry because it means that there's a spot open for other, actually talented Divas like Shane Helms

    Waaaaaaa
