AEW Collision Taping Uses New Announce Team, Kevin Kelly Removed From AEW Roster Page

We at Real Rasslin have come to learn.

AEW commentator Kevin Kelly has been removed from AEW’s roster page, while he was also not present at the recent "AEW Collision" tapings.

At the tapings for this Saturday's "Collision" show, Kevin Kelly was missing from the broadcast team, with Nigel McGuinness and Tony Schiavone manning the two-man booth. Kevin Kelly has been part of the Collision commentary team ever since he joined AEW last year. The former WWE backstage interviewer and MLW commentator was a part of NJPW's English broadcast team before joining AEW.

There's no news as to the reason why Kevin Kelly was removed from the roster page or the "Collision" show, but the speculation is that it could be because of Kevin Kelly's recent comments directed at fellow AEW commentator Ian Riccaboni. Kevin Kelly claimed on Twitter (X) that Ian Riccaboni "libelled" him and revealed that he has been "pushed aside." Kevin Kelly last commentated on the March 2nd episode of "Collision" alongside Nigel McGuinness and Tony Schiavone. 

Kevin Kelly was the first commentator of the "Collision" show with Nigel McGuinness, while the likes of Ian Riccaboni, Jim Ross, and Caprice Coleman have also called "Collision" action occasionally when Kevin Kelly was calling NJPW last year. 

Kevin Kelly had an eight-year stint with NJPW, during which time he was also part of the ROH commentary team, which is incidentally part of AEW now.
