Kayden Carter: Bio
With one of the most unique offensive approaches in all of WWE, excitement is in store every time Kayden Carter competes.
A member of the 2012 NCAA Division II championship basketball team at Shaw University — where she also graduated magna cum laude — Carter next tried her hand at sports-entertainment. She learned to mix it up in the ring from two of the best brawlers around: WWE Hall of Famers The Dudley Boyz.
But Carter didn’t choose to limit herself to only a smash-mouth style. Instead, she took her trade to Mexico, learning the art of lucha libre and maximizing her natural awe-inspiring athleticism with high-flying attacks.
Carter next landed at the WWE Performance Center — just down the road from where she grew up in Winter Park, Fla. — and competed in the 2018 Mae Young Classic. Not satisfied with merely taking part, she picked up two victories to advance to the quarterfinals and turned heads with her unique blending of in-ring styles.
Using a bevy of springboard attacks and a dangerous crucifix bomb, Carter has since faced off with some of NXT’s top competitors, challenging the likes of Rhea Ripley, Bianca Belair and Mia Yim and even knocking off Chelsea Green. She also joined forces with Katana Chance to form a popular tandem, and the two exciting young competitors even made it to the semifinals of the Women's Dusty Classic. After many attempts, Chance & Carter would finally capture the NXT Women's Tag Team Titles on the August 2, 2022 edition of NXT.
During the 2023 WWE Draft, both her and Chance were drafted to the red brand.
Carter’s unorthodox arsenal makes her a difficult challenge for any opponent, and given her uncanny quickness, they must tread carefully — or face defeat in the blink of an eye.
