Cathy Kelley on her WWE departure

Feb 24, 2020 - by Steve Gerweck

Cathy Kelley just recently left WWE following NXT TakeOver: Portland, and in an interview with Maria Menounos she explained what drove that decision:

”I just knew that it was the right time, and really feeling like I had planted a lot of seeds. There are so many things that I want to do in my life. … I think especially with the WWE schedule, it’s so time consuming because you are traveling so much. Being me, I wanted to do everything. So I wanted to work as much as possible, which also meant being away from Los Angeles, which I had just moved to, and that wouldn’t have allowed me to continue to do the other things or work on the other things that I wanted to do.”

She mentioned wanting to be an Executive Producer, and maybe do some acting, and write a book, among many other things. That’s the problem with WWE, of course. Even if you aren’t a wrestler, the travel schedule is absolutely insane and doesn’t leave a lot of room to pursue outside interests.

Kelley, like many before her, simply decided the time had come to figure out the rest of her life.

Best of luck to her.
