Cathy Kelley Reveals Who Open Door on WWE Return

Cathy Kelley recently revealed that Stephanie McMahon played a crucial role in her return to WWE. In an interview with Denise Salcedo, Kelley discussed her journey back to the company under the new leadership of CEO Nick Khan and Chief Content Officer Paul "Triple H" Levesque.

Kelley shared that her return began with an email to Stephanie McMahon, with whom she always stayed in touch. A Zoom call followed, and she was back on Monday Night Raw within a month. Kelley had resigned from WWE's "NXT" brand in February 2020 to pursue other creative projects but always felt a return to WWE was meant to happen.

During her time away, Kelley worked on various writing and illustration projects, including a feature film and a pilot. She expressed hope that these projects would be released soon.

Kelley also discussed the similarities between working on "WWE Raw" and "NXT," stating that it didn't feel different because many of her friends from NXT had moved to the main roster.

She mentioned stars like Dakota Kai and Rhea Ripley, explaining that it felt like they had all "graduated together." Stephanie McMahon's recent decision to step away from WWE surprised the wrestling world, but Kelley understood her choice, emphasizing McMahon's commitment to her family.

While returning to the company, she expressed gratitude for McMahon's support and advocacy. Cathy Kelley is set to play an integral role during WrestleMania 39 festivities in Los Angeles, joining forces with Kayla Braxton, Byron Saxton, and other WWE personalities to cover the action-packed weekend.

The WWE Universe can eagerly anticipate an exciting array of wrestling content showcasing the industry's finest talents.
