It was previously reported that Cathy Kelley recently took to her Instagram account and made a huge announcement that tonight’s NXT TakeOver: Portland Event will be her final day with the company.
In her Instagram post, Cathy Kelley thanked WWE Chief Brand Officer Stephanie McMahon, WWE COO Triple H and everyone else who supported her during her time with The WWE. Kelley also said that she is not sure yet where her next chapter will take her, but she is excited for it.
According to PWInsider.com, Cathy Kelley reportedly gave a notice to the company some time within the last few weeks that she wanted to leave the company and WWE Officials respected that decision. This is certainly not a case of WWE releasing her or letting her go.
Cathy Kelley was hired by The WWE in 2016 after working for Afterbuzz TV. There is no word yet on what Cathy Kelley has planned for her future in the wrestling business, but updates will be provided once it is made available.

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
