It’s sad news for the WWE Universe this week as popular backstage interviewer, Cathy Kelley has revealed she will be leaving the company after tonight.
‘Queen Kathy’ has been very popular with WWE fans since she joined the company back in 2016, having been a key member of WWE’s backstage team. Kelley has had a big role on-screen with backstage interviews, especially for NXT.
However, she has also thrived on WWE’s social media and YouTube, providing constant news updates and plenty of video content.
However, she made a surprise announcement on Twitter this week that after NXT Takeover: Portland, she will be leaving the company.
Her statement read:
“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 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 this means.
“I’m not sure yet where my next chapter will take me, but I am damn excited for it. And I promise you this isn’t a goodbye, it’s just a see you later.”
