While her departure seems quite sudden, Wrestling Observer is reporting that the former Divas Champions left due to numerous storylines for her never coming to fruition. Kaitlyn, they say, was “just over it”.
Kaitlyn doesn’t seem to be leaving the WWE without plans, though. Her fiance bodybuilder PJ Braun hinted that she’s working on something special, tweeting:
My fiancé @KaitlynWWE has officially stepped down from the WWE to focus on an AWESOME new project. It's going to be HUGE! Very proud of her!

He went on to clarify that Kaitlyn is not pregnant, so that will narrow down the speculation a bit.
We’re excited to see what she’s working on, but we’re sure going to miss her in the ring.
