Dakota Kai explains why she turned her back on Raquel Gonzalez

Dakota cut an excellent promo, which gave an ironic and logical explanation as to why she wanted to betray her friend Raquel Gonzalez. Kai stated she wanted someone to trust in the beginning, and that is when she saw Raquel. She added that without her, Raquel would have still been stuck in the shadows. She said that early on it was just simple for Raquel, stand and learn from behind. Dakota then added that she was okay when Raquel became a star on her rights, as long as everyone knew who the leader was.

But the current NXT Champion slowly became the next big thing in NXT, as she was impressive every bout. Dakota said that she was upset when Io Shirai handed Raquel the opportunity to become the NXT Champion.

Dakota added- “With my help she beat Io and became the new NXT Women’s Champion. That should have been me. I was the one that should have had my hand raised. I should have been in the ring with Bianca and Ripley.” 

Dakota then revealed her frustrations when Raquel couldn’t help her win the tag team title. She accused Raquel of not giving 100% after winning the NXT Championship.

Nobody saw it coming!
