Kayla Braxton is one of the most beloved personalities in WWE. She is never afraid of speaking her mind whenever possible and truly loves herself no matter what. Interestingly enough, Braxton also initially turned down the idea of working in WWE as well.

Kayla Braxton is currently one of the highlights of WWE’s interview sections. Her interesting relationship with Paul Heyman has contributed to her popularity, but there is much more to her than that.

Braxton got her start in NXT but that might not have ever happened in the first place. While speaking on Chris Van Vliet’s Insight, Kayla Braxton revealed that she initially turned down the idea of working in WWE until she changed her mind.


Actually, someone within the company reached out to me and asked if I was interested. A former employee, who I knew outside of work, asked if I wanted to work in WWE. Initially, I was, ‘I’m good. No thanks.’ I was still going for the entertainment childhood gig.”

Growing up, one thing my grandfather always told me was like he’d always use the term unexpected opportunities and how you need to grab them, cause you never know where it’s gonna lead. That was my drive to do it. I was like you know what, I can do it for a year, learn a lot and meet a lot of people, there’s no downside here.”

Kayla Braxton also confessed that she wasn’t cut out for an announcer’s role in WWE. WWE also spoke to Kayla Braxton about possible commentary role as well. Miss Braxton is currently a mainstay WWE personnel for the company, majorly appearing on SmackDown these days. It remains to be seen what’s next in store for her.
