Two members of the WWE broadcast team have announced their engagement to each other on social media.
NXT lead announcer Vic Joseph and the developmental brand’s backstage interviewer McKenzie Mitchell have taken to social media to announce their engagement.
Joseph has been the lead voice at the NXT announce table alongside WWE Hall Of Famer Beth Phoenix and former Intercontinental Champion Wade Barrett since taking over the role from Mauro Ranallo in August 2020. This followed spells as the play-by-play announcer on Raw and NXT UK.
Mckenzie Mitchell joined WWE in September 2019 following a three-year spell with IMPACT Wrestling. Mitchell took over as backstage interviewer on NXT following in the footsteps of Cathy Kelley and Renee Young.
Mitchell shared her happy news on social media, posting a photo of her and Joseph with the caption:
“life is fun with you..let’s do it forever @VicJosephWWE”

Vic Joseph shared the story on the After The Bell podcast of how McKenzie Mitchell helped him out after NXT TakeOver: Stand And Deliver back in April:
“I had more water that day, I actually had two meals that day. But, I was fading. Long story, the match ends, I go into the back. and I see McKenzie [Mitchell]. McKenzie looks me dead in the eye and she knew something was wrong.”
“I didn’t know my name, my eyes were rolling around, I was spent. Stephanie McMahon gives me one of those – she’s standing next to somebody and leans forward like, ‘what’s going on over there?’ I’m eating a brown bar of fig apple healthy stuff, which you know I would never put in my body. If it’s not McDonald’s, Burger King, Skittles, or Twizzlers, probably not going into this stomach.”
“So, she looks at me and she goes, ‘are you okay?’ and I kind of, for some reason, walked to her and I was like, ‘I just get so into it.’ We had this long conversation and by the end of it, I just looked her in the eyes like a sad puppy dog and said, ‘Hey. Would you like to come on After The Bell this weekend after WrestleMania?’ She said, ‘I’d love to. Let’s get it done,’ and I just walked away.”
Everyone at Inside The Ropes sends their congratulations to the happy couple and wishes them the best for their future.
