ROH play-by-play commentator Kevin Kelly, who has been working with ROH since 2010, has departed the company, according to PWInsider. Kelly follows fellow former ROH announcers Steve Corino and Nigel McGuinness, who also recently departed the company.
Kelly has been doing English commentary for New Japan Pro Wrestling, and F4WOnline reports that part of the reason behind Kelly's departure is because of his time away for the NJPW job. They added that ROH still plans to have Kelly do some on-camera work for them in the future.
An update on the Kevin Kelly situation is that he had to make a choice between keeping his full-time office job with ROH or his commitment to New Japan, as New Japan wanted him in Japan for the entire week this coming week. So he chose New Japan, which pays well, well enough to get Don Callis back into a business that he pretty much walked away from 15 years ago. Kelly is expected to still be used as on-air talent by ROH.
