Kaitlyn Gone From WWE

WWE announced Wednesday here on dot com that Kaitlyn will “no longer be under contract” with the company. They report she has “chosen to pursue other endeavors outside of the sports-entertainment world.”

The news is surprising for a couple of reasons. Kaitlyn taped a match against WWE Divas Champion AJ Lee that will air on this week’s episode of Main Event on Tuesday from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. You can view a photo Tweeted to me below:

Further, there has been a “no fire” edict in place where WWE has not wanted to acknowledge main roster releases unless what the person does is so egregious it’s basically unavoidable. This is believed to be the reason why WWE hasn’t cut ties with Luis Ignascio Urive Alvirde – the original Sin Cara.

10:44 AM EST January 8, 2014 Update: Based on comments from Kaitlyn, she quit WWE thus the “no fire” edict remains in tact. That clears up the latter surprise of this. End update.

Kaitlyn addressed her departure Wednesday morning on Twitter:

Kaitlyn’s fiancé, PJ Braun, weighed in with the following:

    I wish her the best in her future endeavors. lets hope someday she might come back because she really did become good over time.

    I’m really surprised at this news. Kaitlyn gave me the impression that she wanted to be in the business for a long time, and WWE seemed to like her work. I say WWE liked her because she has had a couple pushes already in her short run. Her leaving is a big hit to a diva’s division that is seriously lacking female competitors that can actually work like Kaitlyn could. There has to be something more behind her departure that hasn’t come out yet imo.

    a shame she is leaveing, hope to see her return one day.

  • Groundbreaking Announcement

    i hope it involves less clothing!

  • The Breaker

    So Kaitlyn quits, and Aksana is being pushed as a top Diva… these are dark days we’re living in!

  • BlazeKing

    Damn shame she’s leaving… With a little more experience, she could have been a close Beth Phoenix V2! On the upside, the picture is awesome! AJ only does that to the people she loves storyline wise.

    I feel like she was put in a bad position ever since Total Divas launched. The heels on Total Divas (Bellas) turned face and it ended up being the Total Divas cast vs. the non Total Divas. They never turned Kaitlyn heel just had her team with the non cast members. She ended up being just an extra. Had she been on the show with her fiancé like Cameron is things could have been different.

    A little off topic but why is Alica Fox feuding with Toal Divas when she co-host the after Total Divas special?

    I’m sure if wwe gave a crap about the divas. She would still have stayed.
