WWE NXT: Dakota Kai turns on Raquel Gonzales

One of the prominent teams of Dakota Kai and Raquel Gonzales is no longer together. Dakota Kai has turned on Gonzales in a segment where the latter cut a promo telling how dominant her title reign has been.

During the segment, Gonzales mentioned Kai and said as long as she is with her, no one in the locker room can take the NXT Women’s Championship Title away from her. As Gonzales posed with the title on the corner taunting the crowd, Kai placed a running kick on the face of her friend in the corner. 

Kai then took the Championship belt and raised it in the air, taunted Gonzales, then draped it over a helpless Gonzales before making her way back to end the segment. Dakota Kai vs. Raquel Gonzales is now booked for NXT Takeover 36 on Sunday, August 22.

WWE NXT: Samoa Joe is all set to return to in-ring action

WWE NXT General Manager William Regal’s special enforcer Samoa Joe has resigned from his position to return to in-ring action. He is all set to take on NXT Champion Karrion Kross at NXT Takeover 36.

In tonight’s episode, Joe handed his resignation to William Regal after he was provoked by NXT Champion Karrion Kross earlier this month. Kross attacked Joe two weeks back when the latter was the special guest referee in the former’s bout against Johnny Gargano.

Even last week, Kross continued taunting Joe and provoked him to come out of his current role and face him at Takeover 36. Therefore, the match between two stalwarts is final now on August 22 with the NXT Championship on the line. 

WWE NXT: Adam Cole defeats Bronson Reed and gets attacked by Kyle O’Reilly

It seems like the rivalry between Adam Cole and Kyle O’Reilly has some grains left. After Adam Cole defeated Bronson Reed in a grueling main-event bout, Cole got attacked by one of his bitter rivals Kyle O’Reilly. 

Following his victory, Cole was posing at the ringside. Out of nowhere, Kyle O’Reilly attacked him from behind with a steel chair. One Chair shot and Cole was down on the floor. Kyle then picks him up and started unloading on him. He removed half of the steel steps and plants Cole back first, on the exposed steel stairs with a suplex. 

The suplex was enough to get the better of Cole, who was screaming in pain, while the referee stopped Kyle from doing any further damage, and before the night got over, Kyle O’Reilly was the only one standing tall.
