Cathy Kelley departing WWE after NXT TakeOver: Portland

A member of the WWE/NXT broadcast team is departing the company after this weekend.

In a statement that she posted on her social media accounts today, Cathy Kelley announced that she's come to the decision to leave WWE. Her final day for the company will be NXT TakeOver: Portland on Sunday.

Kelley wrote:

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

After Sunday's TakeOver event goes off the air, Kelley will interview Triple H on his Facebook page and WWE's YouTube channel.

Kelley joined WWE in 2016. This week, she appeared in her backstage interviewer role on NXT and also interviewed new WWE signee Simone Johnson about joining the Performance Center.
