In recent months, one of the athletes who has grown the most professionally in the NXT rings is undoubtedly Raquel Gonzalez, the former absolute champion of the third WWE brand, who after having also won a tag team title in NXT, had to give up the belt too maximum, as happened to all its predecessors over time.
Within a few months, Gonzalez went from being a bodyguard to being a teammate to taking her first steps in the WWE ring with her own feet, becoming one of the most complete and dominant athletes in the world third roster of the company, with his stint in that of NXT which now seems to be about to end, as confirmed by several sources of the web wrestling overseas.
What's next for Raquel Gonzalez?
According to what was revealed in the last few hours by the well-known Bryan Alvarez, a colleague of the well-known Dave Meltzer, in one of the latest newsletters of the Wrestling Observer, it would seem that the time to see Raquel Gonzalez in the NXT rings is now over, with the former champion of the WWE who is in fact about to make the big leap in the quality of her career on Monday Night Raw or Friday Night Smackdown.
To the microphones of the latest Live of the Observer, Alvarez said: "Do you know who could soon show up 'in blue'? Raquel Gonzalez. She is on her way out of NXT, but they still kept her there because they have a tournament about to start and otherwise they would have no teams to enter the tournament.
So they had to hold her back for a while longer for this tournament. We have announced a tournament, but we are without a team. "Obviously, the reporter is talking about the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic, which since last year has also had its female version, with the talents of NXT that lately are many more than in the past but certainly less known, has been the introduction of several new recruits, with the advent of the second version of NXT wanted by the Chairman himself.
Making her debut with the former black and gold brand in 2016, Gonzalez has had considerable success during her time with NXT. She has enjoyed a reign with the NXT Women's Championship, defeating Io Shirai at NXT TakeOver: Stand & Deliver in April 2021.
While paired with Dakota Kai, Gonzalez has also achieved tag team success, capturing the NXT Women's Tag Team Championships and winning the 2021 edition of the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic.
