AEW announcer Kevin Kelly – who has been with the company since the launch of Collision – has been sacked.

According to PWTorch, he was fired for comments he made on social media last week accusing ROH announcer Ian Riccaboni of sabotaging his career and of libel.

“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,” Kelly said on X.

Kevin’s profile was removed from AEW’s official website on Thursday and he was not at the Collision tapings in Georgia on Thursday night.
