Raquel Gonzalez spoke about giving Dakota Kai a chance

In an interview, the NXT Champion revealed that she was open to giving Kai a shot at the WWE NXT Women’s Championship title. However, she has to ask.

“[Dakota’s] look was more at Xia Li, she just stepped on her moment. Dakota and I haven’t really discussed jealousy. Every time this topic or discussion comes up, I’m totally open about it. I will say, if Dakota wants an opportunity (at the NXT Women’s Championship), I will gladly give it to her. Why not? She deserves it and has earned it. All she has to do is ask.”

However, while she is still the WWE NXT Champion, Gonzalez wants to become the NXT Tag Team Champion as well, alongside Dakota Kai.
