I hope they have a good replacement. There are a lot of people needed to make a wrestling show work. While the wrestlers are the ones who get all of the credit, they are far from alone and you might not even notice some of them. WWE has a lot of people who do all kinds of things, though one of them is going to be leaving the company soon, with her presence being missed.
While wrestling is often seen as the most important part of a wrestling show, the in-ring action itself does not mean as much without a reason to care about the wrestlers. That is taken care of with the help of promos and interviews, which have to be set up a certain way. That is the job of a good interviewer, and one of WWE’s best known ones is going to be leaving soon.
Cathy Kelly has posted a message to her Instagram page, saying that she will be leaving WWE, with her last event being this Sunday’s Takeover: Portland. Kelly gave WWE her notice that she was leaving, meaning that WWE did not make the initial decision to release her. There is no word on any heat with Kelly and it seems that she wanted to leave the company and pursue something else.

?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
Kelly was around for a good while. Check out some of her moments:
Opinion: I know that a lot of the interviewers seem interchangeable but Kelly was someone who got to showcase her talents a lot. She was able to show that she could do more things than just hold a microphone and that is going to help her get another job once she is gone from WWE. Not everyone can do something like that and Kelly is talented enough to be fine in the future.
