WWE announced Friday afternoon via WWE.com that the organization has come to terms on the release of former Divas Champion Kelly Kelly.

“WWE has come to terms on the release of WWE Diva Kelly Kelly as of today, September 28, 2012. WWE wishes Kelly Kelly the best in all her future endeavors,” their statement reads.

Minutes after the announcement, Kelly wrote on Twitter, “Had an amazing 6 years with wwe made great friends and have the most loyal and amazing fans in the world thanks for the never ending support. Have exciting things in the works can’t wait to share them with you stay tune.”

After taking a hiatus in May, it was rumored that Kelly was looking to part ways with the organization to pursue modeling and acting endeavors. WWE officials attempted to sign her to a new, longer contract, but no agreement was reached.

Initially a catalog model, Kelly debuted on WWE’s ECW brand in June 2006, with the character of an exhibitionist. She became a popular wrestler in the ensuing years, culminating with a Divas Championship victory in June 2011. After taking time off in May, she made a few WWE appearances in August before disappearing again.

    I mean kelly kelly is dime a dozen. in a couple years we will all forget about her. she had on talent at all. at least trish stratuse improve in ring. became great diva in ring and cutting promos. divas divison is dead at this moment. kelly brought nothing to table. she should have been fired 2-3 yrs ago. divas divison is joke. To be honest. with these 2 minute quick matches. at least tna takes there women divison serious. they give there women talent. alot time in ring and on promos. to get reaction out of crowd. wwe and vince don’t care about divas anymore. just like an old metalica song. sad but true!

    I’m calling it right now. The release is fake, and she’s the blonde that attacked Kaitlyn.

  • dave

    thats the thing about there being only one real promotion nowadays. u never have any high profile arrivals. once someone leave they disappear

  • Jon

    True I just hope the rumors of Saul Gurerrao realsed are not true.

  • art

    Glad wwe released her,kelly was just awful & im glad shes gone because now a nxt diva could take her place & they can actually wrestle unlike her…..

  • kane

    They are replacing the older divas so Batista will have new women to sleep with when he comes back to WWE.

    What was it that was reported on here the other day? Oh yeah “Kelly Kelly will be returning full time before the year is out”
    Once again, shows that sources aint worth shit.

  • Buttercastle

    Well there goes my reason for watching

  • Nobody

    I do not know if this is real or not. They used her “stage name”. When they have done this before (using stage name), it was not a legitimate departure. Kelly Kelly’s real name is Barbie Blank.
