Kelly cited his commitments with doing English commentary for New Japan Pro Wrestling and other business opportunities as the reason behind his departure.
Kelly had been replaced as the lead announcer for ROH at the beginning of 2017 by Ian Riccaboni after Kelly chose not to renew his contract with the company, but still made sporadic appearances on ROH commentary for PPV events.

To focus on @njpw1972 as well as new opportunities, I will no longer announce for @ringofhonor. Thanks to all whom made last 7 yrs so fun!
