As of Jan. 8, Kaitlyn (Celeste Bonin) will no longer be under contract with WWE. The former Divas Champion has chosen to pursue other endeavors outside the sports-entertainment world. 

WWE wishes Kaitlyn the best in all her future endeavors.

Kaitlyn has been under contract with the WWE since 2010, when she got her start in then-developmental promotion Florida Championship Wrestling. She was first seen on WWE television as a participant in the third season of NXT, winning the competition under pro Vickie Guerrero. Kaitlyn was signed to Smackdown following her win on NXT, immediately forming a tag team with current reigning Divas Champion AJ Lee, but spent most of 2012 wrestling for NXT Redemption. She is a former WWE Divas Champion, and ranked the #5 Divas in the world by PWI in 2013.

Kaitlyn was recently engaged to bodybuilder PJ Braun. Her final WWE match will be aired tonight on WWE Main Event, where she faces  long-time rival AJ Lee.
