The champ turned face when she confronted the role models Sasha Banks and Bayley. Io Shirai would then face The Boss on night one of NXT: The Great American Bash in the main event.

The match was a spectacle that lit up night one of the PPV. The match was so brilliant that it helped NXT defeat AEW in the ratings which had performers like Cody Rhodes, Adam Page, and Kenny Omega.

Post that historic night, everyone wondered what was next for the champion. Dakota Kai answered it by assaults for two continuous weeks.

However, in NXT, you don’t get title shots by asking, you need to earn them. That’s exactly what Kai did.
