WWE broadcaster Kayla Braxton has paid homage – of sorts – to special counsel and advocate extraordinaire Paul Heyman with a cosplay tribute for Halloween.
Braxton hosts WWE’s The Bump and had previously been joined on a regular basis on Talking Smack by Heyman. During the pair’s time broadcasting together, Heyman would unleash his barbed tongue on Braxton, failing to hide his dismay with her on many occasions.
Now in a case of getting her own back, Kayla Braxton dressed up as Heyman for Halloween on WWE’s The Bump and proved an incredible likeness to Heyman, complete with trademark jowls.
Braxton introduced herself on The Bump in typical Heyman style, noting Heyman’s availability to the highest bidder at any given time:
“My name is Paul Heyman and I serve as special counsel for the reigning, defending, Universal Champion – whoever that may be,” said Braxton. “Whether it be Roman Reigns, Brock Lesnar or the stray cat that I passed on the way to WWE’s the Bump. If the check clears, you have my vote. Where’s that Kayla Braxton? She is wonderful, isn’t she?”

Paul Heyman has been at the centre of controversy on SmackDown in recent weeks as his two charges Roman Reigns and Brock Lesnar have done battle over the WWE Universal Championship.
At Crown Jewel with Lesnar and Reigns in the full throng of battle, both men looked to Heyman for help as he has been able to provide on previous occasions. Heyman, remaining non-committal, threw the Universal Title belt between the two men to do battle over. In the end, Reigns came out on top thanks to help from his cousins The Usos.
