Similar to Tegan Nox, Dakota Kai also suffered an ACL injury just as things seemed to be happening for her.
In 2018 Shayna Bazler was running roughshod over the women’s division. Baszler began accusing the women’s locker room of being scared of her, Dakota Kai was the one to stand up to her. Things were going well as she teamed with Io Shirai and Kairi Sane against Shayna Baszler, Marina Shafir and Jessamyn Duke. It seemed as though a championship match against Baszler was next but the injury put and end to that.
After being absent for nine months, Kai returned to team with, turn on and then feud with Tegan Nox. Despite the nasty beat down dished out to Nox and the subsequent matches, Kai’s heel run hasn’t quite elevated her the next level.
A programme against NXT’s popular champion could do wonders for Kai’s career and heel charcter. Add Kai’s partner Raquel Gonzalez to the mix and we have the potential for a great feud with even better matches.
