Kai is living her dream.
This past April at WrestleMania 34 in New Orleans, the kickoff show featured a number of WWE's female competitors from RAW, SmackDown Live and NXT. One of the competitors in that match was the captain of "Team-Kick" and current NXT star Dakota Kai. The match was ultimately won by Naomi but nonetheless Kai looks back at the experience as one that she'll never forget as she is only three years into her WWE career and has already competed at WrestleMania.
"That moment was incredible," Kai told Newshub. "We knew that some NXT talent would be involved, but we didn't find out who that would be until the night before. It was insane and I still pinch myself a lot looking back that it actually did happen. It was surreal, totally-totally surreal. To be able to represent my country on such a global stage is very cool."
The Kiwi is looking to be a part of history once again as she aims to be a part of the first-ever WWE all-women's PPV 'Evolution'. There are five matches confirmed for the show with those being RAW, SmackDown Live, NXT and NXT U.K. Women's Championship matches. Also, the finals of the Mae Young Classic tournament will take place on the October 28th PPV as well. Over 50 women from the past, present and future will be a part of this event and Kai hopes to be one of them.
"The fact that there is an all-women's pay-per-view is just crazy to me," Kai said. "I would love to be involved, but at this point we haven't been told which NXT stars will be in play. All the girls here at NXT consider ourselves to very much be a part of the evolution of the women's revolution, so I really hope to be on that card. The best I can do is be prepared for anything at any time. You have to be ready no matter what, as you can be called upon at the very last minute. I will prepare to be involved just in case."
