On Friday night, WWE went on to release another wave of names related to the NXT roster, with numerous talents having been fired overnight, for not being part of the company's plans for the future. Among the many names fired, illustrious names such as Dakota Kai, Dexter Lumis or Malcolm Bivens, the manager of the Diamond Mine, stable with Roderick Strong, have also been sent away.
The name that has certainly aroused the most hype of all, is that of the former NXT champion Dakota Kai, who had also been seen in numerous dark matches on the main roster and who seemed to have finished her stint at NXT, with the girl who instead she had joined the main roster for several months, but in the end on Raw and Smackdown, she never got there.
But why then did WWE want to do without Raquel Rodriguez's former tag team partner in the NXT ring? Dave Meltzer explained these developments in his latest update of the Wrestling Observer, and reported how WWE not only had no plans for the wrestler but did not even consider her "main roster merchandise."
What's next for Dakota Kai?
With her latest messages posted on her Twitter account, Dakota Kai wanted to thank the WWE Universe fans for all the support that has come in the last few years, with the girl also wanting to ensure that now she won't stop wrestling because that chapter it's not finished yet.
With these messages, Dakota wanted to assure everyone that she will continue to be a pro-wrestling athlete, even if she will not fight in the WWE rings: "Above all, thank you all. I am so excited and stunned by all the love and support.
The answers in private, the tweets, you all have my heart. I love you "And again: "I am so grateful to be able to meet you, work and interface with you, with all these beautiful people, people I have followed for a long time, people I have learned from.
I have met many friends who have become important in recent years and who will remain for life. I don't know what will be after this. I chose 'Evie' at 17. The chapter was silent, but know this: it's all but finished <3."
Dakota was recently released from her contract along with many other talents from the company's developmental brand, NXT. Since joining the company in 2016, the New Zealander had been a part of the Mae Young Classic tournament as well as becoming a two-time NXT Women's Tag Team Champion.
