KAYLA BRAXTON COMMENTS ON POSSIBLE ABDUCTION
WWE’s backstage interviewer Kayla Braxton was confronted with an unwelcome situation when flying into an unnamed airport. Kayla reports that an unknown man was posing as her driver and tried to convince her to get into his car. Posting to her Twitter Braxton wrote:
“Ladies be careful at the airports when picking up Uber or Lyft. There’s people tricking woman into thinking they’re their ride and abducting them. A guy just tried it with me and I knew immediately what he was up to. Be aware and take all necessary precautions. It’s a scary world”
