To the surprise of few, WWE Diva Kelly Kelly is no longer with the company.
WWE.com announced that the former Divas champion was released on September 28. The model-turned-wrestler had not appeared regularly on WWE television in months.
Preteen boys charmed by her good looks may be grieving, but most wrestling fans won't miss the shabby in-ring performer.
Fans and WWE personnel took to Twitter in reaction to Kelly Kelly's release.
Hall of Fame announcer Jim Ross cleared things up for everyone regarding her departure.
@carlosesquinca .. Kelly-Kelly did not get fired. She apparently has other career objectives.— Jim Ross (@JRsBBQ) September 29, 2012
Wrestlingnewssource.com confirmed JR's assessment, reporting that Kelly Kelly wanted to pursue modeling and acting gig. She'll likely be more successful in that world.
Vickie Guerrero offered the Diva some assistance with moving.
@realkellykelly thank you kelly for the friendship.Call me if you need me to organize your suitcases.🌹— Vickie Guerrero (@ExcuseMeWWE) September 29, 2012
Justin Roberts offered well wishes as well and posted a photo of himself with the Diva.
Condescending WWE, which consistently tweets hilarious WWE-related material, contemplated a connection with Kaitlyn's injury.
Oh, a blonde attacked Kaitlyn at Night of Champions? That explains Kelly Kelly's release.— Condescending WWE (@SarcasticSmark) September 29, 2012
Maffew of Botchamania fame summed up the feelings of many fans.
Kelly Kelly released/quit/fired/no longer in WWE. Gone not with a bang, but a ''Who was she again oh right yeah I remember she was orange.''— MaffewofBotchamania (@Maffewgregg) September 28, 2012
Having not been featured on WWE programming for so long, Kelly Kelly's absence won’t be felt in a major way. She will be remembered for having more looks than ring skills, for being a model doing an impression of a wrestler.
The next stages of her career should be far more successful than the WWE portion of it.
