Cathy Kelley went on her Instagram account today to announce that she is leaving WWE after the NXT Portland event this Sunday. Kelley has been a backstage correspondent for WWE NXT and Smackdown during her WWE run. Kelley has been with WWE since 2016 when she left Afterbuzz TV to join the company.
Kelley went on to thank everybody who has helped her and supported her including Triple H and Stephanie McMahon.
“I’ve typed out and deleted this about 20 times over the past few days, still unsure what to write… I have come to the decision to leave WWE, with Sunday’s NXT Takeover being my last day, If you know me, you know this was more than a job, you know how much I loved it and how difficult this decision was. But sometimes in order to have room for growth, you have to step away. I am so thankful for getting to live out a crazy dream the past four years. Thank you to the WWE digital team for being a platform that never stifled creativity. Thank you to Stephanie McMahon for being a mentor and inspiration in every way. Thank you to Triple H for heading up the best wrestling show currently on tv and letting me be a part of it. And thank you to everyone who has supported me, whether it’s watching a video I’ve done or sending a tweet of encouragement. Words cannot begin to express how much it means. I’m not sure yet where my next chapter will take me, but I am damn excited for it. And I promise this isn’t a goodbye, it’s just a see you later. – CK”
It is not known at this time if Kelley was fired or she has chosen to move on. Based on her comment about how she has “come to the decision to leave WWE” perhaps that means she has decided to leave. It’s also worth noting that sometimes contracts expire, WWE chooses not to renew them and that person has to move on that way. If you’re wondering, her real name is Cathy Kelley.
