WWE releases Kelly Kelly

World Wrestling Entertainment announced today that it had released Diva Kelly Kelly from its roster. It is not an entirely unexpected move.

"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 endeavor," reads the posting on WWE.com.

Kelly Kelly -- real name Barbara Jean "Barbie" Blank -- had been with the company since May 2006, when she was snatched out of the modelling ranks to enter the WWE developmental territory, Ohio Valley Wrestling.

Her debut on the main roster came on the re-launched ECW.

She had one run as WWE Divas champion, but was in many different storylines and feuds. Kelly Kelly hadn't been seen much on WWE TV over the summer, taking a three-month break before returning for a single appearance in August.

It is expected that the 25-year-old Diva will pursue more modelling and acting gigs.

"Had an amazing 6 years with wwe made great friends and have the most loyal and amazing fans in the world thanks for the never ending support," she wrote on her Twitter account, RealKellyKelly
