WWE broadcast team member Kayla Braxton announces that she is bisexual

By Jason Powell, ProWrestling.net Editor (@prowrestlingnet)

WWE broadcast team member Kayla Braxton (Kayla Becker) took to Twitter on Wednesday night to declare that she is bisexual. “My whole life, I’ve had to choose,” Braxton wrote. “Are you black? Are you white? Which bubble do you fill in on the SATs? I always filled in ‘other’ because nothing applied to me. Tonight, I choose to be over having to choose. Hello world. I’m Kayla. Oh. And yeah – I’m Bi.”

Powell’s POV: Braxton ended up deactivating her Twitter page after making the announcement. While I don’t know the official reason, I hope she knows that the number of people who are happy for her greatly outnumber any online trolls she may have encountered.

  1. No judgment on her choice. It’s her life. If you want to spend you life with an electrical appliance, that’s your business.

    My problem is just to ask why people feel the need to alert the world to this? Do whatever you want, but get over yourself. The overwhelming majority of the world doesn’t care who you want to sleep with. As I said before, “that’s your business” works both ways.

    • People REALLY care what’s in your pants and where you put it, particularly straight religious people. Visibility is inestimably important.

    • Perhaps it’s because it was considered taboo for so long and so many people were shunned by family and friends for coming out. I’m straight, but my late uncle was gay and my late grandparents were not accepting. Fortunately, the world has changed and people are generally more accepting these days, but there’s still intolerance out there. So if you’re a younger person who is struggling with your identity or being told negative things, I imagine it must be very helpful to have people in the public eye step forward because it lets people know that they are not alone. For that matter, those who came forward in the past helped change the public perception. I hope we get to a point where no one cares either way, but we’re not there yet.

      • You know what. That is the best explanation I have ever read. I have always been of the mindset that it has been about showing off or the “me, me, me” attitude that is so prevalent in today’s society. I still believe that is part of it, but your idea has merit as well.

  2. It was never taboo to be “bi” unless you live in some ultra-religious country. More importantly, it isn’t news.

    • And yet you chose to read non-news and then comment on non-news? Anyway, I suggest you brush up on your history. Bisexual individuals were not embraced with open arms in this country either.

  3. I’m actually not surprised with the way she sort of appeared to be checking out Shayna Baszler a few weeks ago. I could picture the two of them having rough sex in the backstage area. She was undressing Shayna with her eyes more or less during that particular interview segment a few weeks back.
