Cathy Kelley came into WWE after becoming a face on Championship Wrestling From Hollywood. She soon became a mainstay backstage conducting interviews for the company.

Kelley has worked on SmackDown and NXT. She was reportedly supposed to be correspondent for WWE Backstage, but nothing came of that role. She has focused a majority of her time on digital content recently like her interview with Simone Johnson.

Cathy Kelley revealed in an Instagram post that she is leaving WWE after this weekend. It was a hard message to write, but she was able to explain her reasoning as she starts a new chapter in her life.

‪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

Cathy Kelly has also contributed to Sam Roberts’ show on Sirius XM, WTTW’s GenYTV, WOI-DT’s The Open House Television Show, DSM Living, as well as JUCE TV’s Hot Off The Press. The 31-year-old has a big career ahead of her and she is bidding WWE farewell.

We will have to see where Cathy Kelley ends up next. She made a lot of fans in WWE who will definitely follow her next steps.

I love pro wrestling and hate BS. These two things drive me. Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News. Worked in finance before realizing pro wrestling journalism made much less sense. Pro beachballs at pro wrestling shows, pro dives if someone catches, anti bullies, olives, and pineapples on pizza.
