Dakota Kai has been one of the brightest stars in NXT ever since her debut, and in a recent interview with Sports Illustrated, Kai spoke about her historic rise, her fearless demeanor, and where she sees her career going. 

Check out some of the highlights below: 

On where her fearless demeanor comes from:

I miss home. I miss my family, That’s a sacrifice I made. It was hard to move my life here, The sacrifice I made equates to the way I work in the ring. I sacrificed everything to be here. That’s why I have a fearless approach. I’m the first-ever Kiwi woman signed to WWE, so I’m blazing a new trail, And there is still so much to accomplish.

On her relationship with Raquel Gonzalez:

We’ve been together for a little over a year, and we’re building on that, Raquel has been at the Performance Center longer than I have, and I have seen the work she’s put into this. There is some real-life connection, and that shows in our team. She is big and powerful, and I am quick on my feet, and that juxtaposition works well for us.

On her plans for the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championships:

We’re going to have a lot of fun bringing the WWE tag team championship to NXT, We’re going to take them to every brand, even NXT UK if we can. Think of all the different match combinations. I can’t wait. This is our moment, and we’re going to take it.
