Dakota Kai turned on Team Rhea Ripley and her tag team partner Tegan Nox during the WarGames match at NXT TakeOver: WarGames 2019.
Rhea Ripley and Shayna Baszler set up their teams for the first-ever Women’s WarGames match last night in Chicago. Dakota Kai was added to the team at the last minute after Mia Yim was attacked backstage before the show by an unknown attacker. In desperation, Rhea Ripley added Dakota Kai to the match. Kai looked overwhelmed by the occasion when Ripley asked to into the match though.
The WarGames match started with Candice LeRae and Io Shirai in the cage. Bianca Beliar and Rhea Ripley followed them into the match when their turns came. Kay Lee Ray’s addition to the match turned the tide into Team Baszler’s favor. When Rhea Ripley thought they might come back into the match with Dakota Kai’s introduction, Kai came out with the shocker.
As her turn came to get into the match, Dakota Kai ended up turning on her team and brutally beating down her friend and teammate Tegan Nox. As she turned full heel, she kept on slamming Nox’s surgically repaired knee in the door of the cage repeatedly. Resulting, Tegan Nox was also needed to be removed from the match.
Earlier, Dakota Kai was vying for the spot in Rhea Ripley’s team. But Ripley went with Candice LeRae, Tegan Nox and finally Mia Yim, leaving Kai out of the match. Kai then went on to attack Mia Yim backstage before the match and then turned complete heel during the match.
