WWE News: Dakota Kai gives an update regarding her injury
The Kiwi star suffered a devastating injury at the hands of Shayna Baszler this week.
What’s the story?
Following this week’s episode of NXT TV, popular Mae Young Classic contestant Dakota Kai weighed in on her match against the debuting Shayna Baszler. In a backstage interview with Christy St. Cloud, Kai stated that she is not sure what Shayna is trying to prove to the NXT Universe and labelled The Queen of Spades as a “bully”.
In case you didn’t know…
Ever since making her debut in WWE, Shayna Baszler has been on a terrorizing run and has destroyed every obstacle that stood in her path. The MMA veteran first stepped through the ropes of a WWE ring back in 2017 as part of the inaugural Mae Young Classic tournament, where Baszler reached the final only to fall short to eventual winner Kairi Sane in the finale.
Several weeks ago, the former DDT Heavymetalweight Champion finally arrived at the Full Sail University and made an immediate impact by attacking and choking out Kairi Sane, who was in between of a confrontation with NXT Women’s Champion Ember Moon.
The heart of the matter
Shayna Baszler made her NXT debut earlier this week, as she stepped into the ring with former three-time IPW Women’s Champion Dakota Kai. Baszler dominated the match from start to finish and eventually got the win over Dakota via referee stoppage.
Following her devastating loss to The Queen of Spades, Kai was interviewed backstage by Christy St. Cloud who asked the New Zealand native about an update on her condition. Dakota, who was wearing a sling on her left arm, replied by saying that she doesn’t know what Baszler is trying to prove by acting as such a dominant force but she’s just coming off as a bully. Further, the 29-year-old also said that her arm has been hurting real bad and she is now scheduled to undergo a few x-rays.
WWE is yet to release an official statement on Dakota Kai’s condition and we’re still not sure for how long she will be sidelined due to this catastrophic injury.
By the looks of it, Dakota Kai’s injury seems really bad but as of right now, all we can hope is that she recovers as soon as possible and returns to NXT TV.
