Kevin Kelly has reportedly been fired from his job as an AEW announcer

Wade Keller of is reporting that Kevin Kelly, who was working as an announcer on AEW Collision, has been fired from the company. Kelly was removed from’s roster page on Thursday and did not work the Collision tapings on Thursday night.

Keller noted the following…

“Kelly’s posts on social media last weekend cost him his job, according to PWTorch sources. Kelly gained a lot of attention when he went on TwitterX last weekend and accused ROH announcer Ian Riccaboni of sabotaging his career and of libel.”

Here is what Kelly publicly wrote on Twitter/X…

“But the idea of what I bring to the table is lost there because Ian libeled me. So I sit on the bench, valued by my peers, waiting to get my number called, keep asking why but get pushed aside. It’s okay, because there is no one better than me. Ask the ones that know and they’ll tell you.”

“When you go out of your way to intentionally mischaracterize my raising awareness of the global horrors of child trafficking to a fringe conspiracy theory that everyone knows is bulls–t in order to hurt my career and standing in the industry, that at the very least is libelous.”

Keller also stated that Kelly’s performances were seen as “subpar” within AEW.
