Kylie Rae has a smile to light up the world of professional wrestling, and now a whole new audience has the chance to be introduced to the former AEW and NWA star.
Ahead of WWE Raw on December 12th, Kylie Rae made her debut as part of the WWE Main Event Tapings for the episode that will air on December 15th. The real life Briana Rae Sperry took on Dana Brooke in singles action on the show, but instead of using the name Kylie Rae, she entered to the name of Briana Ray instead.

This news comes after it was reported that Rae took part in a tryout at the WWE Performance Center over the weekend. This tryout was said to be different to the group events WWE has been using to recruit collegiate athletes as of late and was held for more experienced talent. Along with Kylie Rae, independent wrestlers KC Navarro, Dutch, and Vincent were also in attendance.
According to a report from Fightful Select, Rae appeared to be in good spirits during the WWE tryout, and it’s safe to assume things went well as she’s now made an appearance on the company’s programming.
Kylie Rae Retired From Wrestling In 2020
The news of Kylie Rae’s WWE tryout is welcome as the star has faced a number of ups and downs in her wrestling career. Ahead of a scheduled match with Deonna Purrazzo for the IMPACT Knockouts Championship, the star revealed via her Patreon account in November of 2020 that she would be retiring from wrestling due to personal matters. According to one report, she was also set to travel to AAA to portray a Marvel character prior to her retirement.
After taking an extended absence from in-ring competition, the star returned to the squared circle in the spring of 2021 and signed a contract with NWA the following June.
There is no word on whether or not Kylie Rae will officially sign a WWE contract, but Inside the Ropes will continue to report on the situation as more information becomes available.
