Former WWF Announcer Kevin Kelly took to Twitter and revealed that he is going to leave New Japan Pro Wrestling (NJPW).

He noted that he will still call NJPW’s Destruction event in October and WrestleKingdom 18 & New Year Dash.

Here’s what Kevin Kelly tweeted:

“I am at some point soon but I’ll leave it to New Japan to announce it or not. I plan on calling Destruction at Ryogoku and WrestleKingdom/ New Year Dash.”

He then followed with another Tweet:

“My wife of 32 years said she doesn’t want to be alone anymore so that’s why I made the decision.”

Kevin Kelly then replied to a fan who asked him about his potential replacement:

“Someone who can be in Japan all the time that has wrestling experience but is not affiliated with another company. Someone that can grow into and with the product.”

Color Commentator Kevin Kelly most famously worked for the World Wrestling Federation / WWE from 1996 until 2003.

He then joined independent wrestling promotion Ring of Honor between 2010 and 2017.

Speaking of New Japan Pro Wrestling, NJPW wrestlers will be a part of the upcoming AEW WrestleDream pay-per-view on October 1st, which is an event that is being done by Tony Khan to pay tribute to the late, great Antonio Inoki.
