After Kayla Braxton announced that she was leaving WWE, it seems that she’s been in talks with AEW as she could see the writing on the wall.

After 8 years, Kayla Braxton announced that she is leaving WWE imminently. During her time with the company, Braxton had worked as a backstage interviewer on Smackdown, a host of the WWE PLE Kickoff shows as well as The Bump and Talking Smack.

And despite her announcement, it seems Braxton might be sticking around the world of wrestling.

Kayla Braxton To AEW?

Speaking on Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer noted that Braxton could see that her time in the company was coming to an end and confirmed she has held talks with AEW:

It might be AEW, it might not. There definitely was talk between her and AEW. She was looking at other things as well. It was one of those things, I was told she could see the writing on the wall.

They pretty much decided that Cathy Kelley and Jackie Redmond were gonna be the top two ones. So she was number three so I think by that she could see maybe it’s time to go somewhere else.

Kayla Braxton was on hand on the 21st of June SmackDown to give an update after CM Punk had been left bloodied and beaten by Drew McIntyre. Braxton’s final WWE appearance will be on the 28th of June edition of SmackDown.
