Renowned veteran professional wrestling announcer Kevin Kelly, celebrated for his significant contributions to the wrestling landscape across various promotions like WWE, ROH, and NJPW, has found himself amidst controversy recently. However, it appears that his presence on the AEW roster page has come to an abrupt end.

Kelly had taken a hiatus to fulfill his obligations during the G1 Climax 33 tournament last year but was expected to return. However, it’s no secret that some fans had expressed dissatisfaction with Kelly’s performance upon his return.

The tipping point seemingly occurred when Kelly embarked on an impassioned tirade just before the AEW Revolution pay-per-view, targeting Ian Riccaboni with accusations of libel. Furthermore, he asserted that he was undervalued within AEW and boasted of his unparalleled prowess in commentary.

To the surprise of many, Kevin Kelly’s name no longer graces the AEW roster page, suggesting his removal from the roster altogether.


It appears that Kelly’s outspoken outburst may have led to his departure from AEW. However, the future remains uncertain for him, with only time revealing what lies ahead for his career. Keep checking back to Ringside News for more information on Kevin’s status as it becomes available.
