Kayla Braxton has announced her departure from WWE, concluding an 8-year tenure with the company.

Braxton joined WWE in 2016, initially stepping into the role of a ring announcer for NXT. Her talents quickly elevated her to a backstage interviewer position on the main roster by May 2017, while she continued her duties in NXT. By 2019, she transitioned to the main roster full-time, becoming a familiar and beloved face to WWE fans.

Beyond her backstage interviewing, Braxton expanded her presence in WWE media. She co-hosted the popular show “The Bump”, providing fans with in-depth interviews and insights into their favorite wrestlers. Additionally, she took on the role of host for “Talking Smack”, further cementing her reputation as a skilled and engaging interviewer.

She issued the following statement regarding her WWE departure:

“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 backstage 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 Wiseman 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!!!!”
