#1 Gave Dakota Kai a good return match
Since debuting in 2017, Dakota Kai had been a fan favorite babyface for most of her NXT run. She quickly climbed up the ladder and even competed against Shayna Baszler for the NXT Women’s Championship.
Unfortunately, a torn ACL forced her out of competition, but the New Zealand born Superstar made her long awaited return to action this week on NXT.
Vignettes had already hinted toward her arrival, but the lack of surprise certainly didn't diminish how special her return actually was. The entire WWE Universe was ecstatic to see her back, and she was appropriately greeted with applause.
Kai was visibly emotional. It was obvious what NXT and the fans meant to her.
She took on Taynara Conti in singles competition in a rather ordinary match, but was able to finish the bout impressively with her signature GTK.
