Cathy Kelley and her journey in the world of professional wrestling has been nothing short of remarkable. After making her debut in WWE in 2016, she quickly became a recognisable face on television.

Her association with the company saw a brief hiatus, but she made a triumphant return last year, thanks to a significant change in the company’s structure.

This restructuring not only brought Kelley back into the fold but also witnessed the return of top superstars and a marked improvement in WWE’s television product.

Cathy Kelley: The Emotional Toll Behind the Scenes

However, behind the glitz and glamour of the wrestling world, Kelley faced her own set of challenges. In a candid conversation on the Out Of Character with Ryan Satin podcast, Kelley opened up about the emotional turmoil she experienced during her time in WWE.

She revealed that the months leading up to her exit from the company in 2020 were particularly harrowing. Despite her professional facade, she was overwhelmed with emotion, shedding tears every single day. While she managed to maintain her composure at work, there were instances when she couldn’t hold back her emotions, even in the locker room: “I remember the last few months, I was crying every single day. My close friends, my family knew that and I smiled through it at work most of the time.

“I think there are like one or two times that I broke (she laughed), being in the locker room but yeah, it felt like the dream that I had — and whether that was promised or not at the beginning — it wasn’t gonna happen there so, I could have probably stayed and I was told at the time that I would have a job there until I’m 87 if I wanted it.”

She had a vision beyond just digital roles and content creation, and she believed that her true potential might not be realised within the confines of her then role in WWE.
