Kayla Braxton Leaving WWE

Kayla Braxton will be leaving WWE next week

After spending eight years with the promotion, one of the leading voices of WWE, Kayla Braxton, has announced that she will be parting ways with the company. In a social media post, Braxton shocked fans by revealing on her social media that next Friday’s episode of SmackDown in Madison Square Garden would be her last. 

“After nearly 8 years holding the microphone on WWE television, I am setting it down to pursue my next chapter. Next week at the world’s most famous arena, I will be officially signing off. During my years with WWE, I was able to master the art of the back-stage interview.

“I hope I was able to turn minutes into moments for you who watched week to week and maybe even ushered in a new fan base. My banter with Paul Heyman became the stuff of legend, and I am so thankful for all he has done to elevate my career. I gained a wealth of knowledge from the Wise man and for that, I’ll be eternally grateful. In 2016, the legendary Michael Cole brought me in to begin my WWE career as a ring announcer with NXT, but I quickly found myself touring the globe, hosting hall of fame ceremonies, kickoff shows and helping launch WWE’s first weekly morning show, “The Bump”. I exited “The Bump” after more than 200 shows and a move to Los Angeles.

“Now on the west coast, I have been offered new opportunities that will further utilize the skills I gained working for the largest sports entertainment company in the world. I am extremely thankful to Triple H, Nick Khan, WWE and all of its partners for allowing me to be a trusted voice on WWE television for all these years. Thank you to every single person who made me feel like this was my home and that I was a part of this family. Thank you for taking a chance on me and welcoming this outsider with open arms. I hope I made you proud and I’d love it if you’d stay with me for this next chapter. I’m excited to reveal to all of you what I have coming up next!!!!”

A report from Fightful Select revealed that Braxton has been working on a verbal agreement with WWE for the last few weeks after her deal expired. It was noted that AEW was “made aware” of her contract status, though there is nothing to suggest that the two sides have been in any contact. Braxton joined WWE back in 2016, and had a variety of roles such as backstage interviewer, ring announcer, pre-show panelist, and show host.
