Backstage Interviewer Cathy Kelley Set To Leave WWE After NXT TakeOver: Portland

Looking for room to grow...

Since joining WWE in 2016, Cathy Kelley has been a mainstay on WWE.com and on the company's social media platforms, conducting backstage interviews and providing the latest pieces of WWE news.

Kelley won't be doing interviews for much longer, however, as she announced on Twitter that she will be leaving the company after NXT TakeOver: Portland. In her tweet, Kelley cited that she has loved working for WWE over the past four years but she had to step away from the company in order "to have room for growth."

Cathy tweeted: "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."
