As first reported by Fightful, and later confirmed by PWInsider and F4WOnline, WWE on-screen personality Charly Caruso is reportedly done with the company and is not expected to re-sign when her deal is up.
According to the reports there had been backstage issues with Caruso being consistently late for interviews for WWE Raw, specifically with Randy Orton and Sheamus, which then led to her being removed from television. Reports say that Vince McMahon was informed about Caruso’s constant tardiness and “took exception” to the situation.
It is believed that with the recent hiring of Kevin Patrick (Kevin Egan) as a backstage correspondent and the host of Raw Talk has essentially confirmed Caruso’s exit.
Caruso (real name Charly Arnolt) has been doing working with ESPN since 2018 and has been frequently seen on First Take. She was recently part of their first-ever all women’s edition of the show.
As of this report, Caruso has not made any public statements regarding this situation.
Caruso began with WWE in 2016 and was assigned to NXT. She was the host of Raw Talk and various pay-per-view kickoff shows following Renee Young’s (Paquette) departure last August.
Her last appearance was on the February 22, 2021 edition of Raw Talk.
