Former WWE Diva Stacy Keibler says she does not envision returning to WWE for any type of regular schedule. Keibler told satellite radio show host Sam Roberts that the two main reasons are her budding entertainment career and getting out of the "WWE lifestyle."

"Existing in the lifestyle of WWE - it's such a grueling lifestyle and being on the road four, five days a week - it's hard to be with your friends and family and you're sort of trapped in this bubble," Keibler very nicely said in an interview promoting her new "Supermarket Superstar" TV show. "For me, it was just time to move on from that."

"You do have to adjust to real-life again," Keibler added, "because you're so used to being in a car, being on the road, staying in hotels, so it's a bit of an adjustment."

While on the road, Keibler noted she started preparing for life-after-WWE "a couple years before she left" the company. "I was on the road four days a week, then I would come, that day I would go to my acting classes, then the next day I would unpack, re-pack, and go back," Keibler said. "I had already started to see if that was the next step or prepare for whatever. So, I was blessed that 'Dancing With The Stars' came while I was still with WWE."

Even though she is out of the wrestling business, Keibler said she still feels neck pain from the powerbomb through a table that she took from Bubba Ray Dudley (Bully Ray) ten years ago in WWE.

"It was just a little bit off, so instead of the way it was supposed to happen, I took the entire fall," Keibler said. "I was trying to see if I could feel my fingertips when I was laying there because I really thought I broke my neck. I think I still have some neck issues from that. Thanks, Bubba! (laughs). I was very, very scared."

Also in the interview, Keibler discussed the different points on her journey from being a wrestling fan to joining WCW to transitioning to WWE. Reflecting on her WWE time, Keibler credited Lita for showing her tough love in the ring when she first debuted in WWE. Keibler said Lita was very physical in the ring, giving her bruises, but "we became good friends," Keibler said.

Keibler also acknowledged her break-up from actor George Clooney, but said there is no salacious story to report on their break-up. "It is what it is," Keibler said. "I almost wish I had a story because it would almost make it more easier. But, to me, it's not really that big of a deal. It's kind of life, and new beginnings."
