Kayla Braxton, a well-known figure on WWE television for nearly 8 years, is set to part ways with the company following the June 28th edition of Friday Night SmackDown.

In an emotional announcement, Braxton expressed her deep gratitude for her time at WWE. She highlighted her diverse roles, including backstage interviewer, ring announcer, and host of “The Bump,” reflecting fondly on her journey and professional growth within the company.

Braxton credited WWE with honing her skills and opening doors to new opportunities, particularly in Los Angeles where she currently resides. She specifically acknowledged the mentorship of Paul Heyman and Michael Cole, citing their significant influence on her career development.

The Wrestling Observer disclosed that Braxton has been in discussions with AEW, among other potential opportunities. Braxton’s decision to explore other ventures might have been influenced by perceived shifts in WWE’s priorities.

The Observer noted that with Cathy Kelley and Jackie Redmond emerging as WWE’s primary choices, Braxton may have felt it was time to seek new challenges elsewhere.

“There definitely was talk between her and AEW. She was looking into other things as well. It was one of those things – I was told she could see the handwriting on the wall. They pretty much had decided that Cathy Kelley and Jackie Redmond were gonna be the two top ones. So she was number three. So I think by that, she kind of could see maybe it’s time to go somewhere else.”

Braxton tweeted the following about these rumors:

“The support from u guys has been overwhelming. I am so thankful for u. But I did wanna make 1 thing clear as I enter my final week in WWE: if I wanted to keep working in wrestling, I wouldn’t be walking away from the largest wrestling company in the world. Nice try, rumor weeds!”

AEW personality RJ City replied:

“Thank god.”

Kayla replied:

“What I meant to say, was I wouldn’t leave to go be within 10 feet of this creep @RJCity1.”

Currently, Braxton continues to work under a verbal arrangement with WWE, leaving speculation open about her next career move.
