WWE Releases Kelly Kelly

She’ll be missed for being hot but probably not for her ring skills, WWE.com has announced this afternoon that they have released 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.

Kelly Kelly had been with WWE for seven years, starting out on ECW as Mike Knox’s abused girlfriend.  Kelly took a leave of absence in June 2011 and has only been used on television once since her return.

This release comes on the heels of the rumors that arguably the best Divas wrestler Beth Phoenix has given her notice to WWE and a slew of recent releases and departures: Kharma, Maryse, Michelle McCool and the Bella Twins.

On the one had the already depleted Divas division takes another hit.  On the other hand for fans of women’s wrestling this could be a good thing.  Other than Phoenix and Kharma, most of the recent releases/departures haven’t been of well-regarded ring generals.

WWE recently signed Ring of Honor/Chikara women’s wrestler Sara Del Rey who’s known more for her wrestling ability than looking good in a bikini.  Much like the tag team division, could WWE be revamping it’s women’s division as well? Stay tuned.
