Kayla Braxton: Bio
From mediating locker-room showdowns between hulking Superstars to hosting NXT Live Events in a city near you, Kayla Braxton has mastered a variety of roles since joining the NXT broadcast team in 2016.
A graduate of Belmont University’s broadcast journalism program, Braxton came to NXT from the world of television news, having hosted her own entertainment segment on WESH 2 News in Orlando, Fla. Yet, addressing huge audiences is far from a recent development for Braxton: As a teenager, she participated in public-speaking competitions, and at the tender age of 17, Braxton even spoke in front of President George W. Bush at the White House.
Now that she is a member of sports-entertainment’s hottest brand, Braxton is charged with getting backstage scoops and asking the tough questions, a demanding task she handles with aplomb on behalf of the passionate NXT Universe.
