Dakota Kai wants to help elevate WWE's women's division, and she sees her reign alongside IYO SKY as the WWE Women's Tag Team Champions as a chance to do so.
Kai and IYO SKY won the titles by defeating Raquel Rodriguez and Aliyah on the September 12 episode of WWE Raw. In doing so, Kai captured her first championship on WWE's main roster.
Speaking on El Brunch de WWE, Kai discussed the victory and stated that she wants ot to elevate the entire division. She expressed her hope to defend the gold against any and all challengers.
"So with the Women’s Tag Team Championships being brought back, and then creating a tournament around it, during the tournament, we were really adamant that we were going to be the ones to win those championship. In the finals, it didn’t work out that way, so I think with the rematch, we knew we had to be the ones to win them. In terms of us and Damage CTRL and all the things we’ve been saying, we won at Clash, but we needed more momentum. For IYO and I to win these tag team championships, not only does it do something for us, and us as a group, but it does something for the division. I would love to defend these tag team championships against any team that wants to challenge for them. I think that that only elevates us, but it elevates the division and all the women within it together," Kai said.
She continued by emphasizing that she wants the women's division to be lifted up and elevated. As for the titles, she made it clear that it won't be easy for any challenger to dethrone the reigning champions.
"I want so badly for this division to continue to be elevated and lifted and just to prove that we are worthy of these tag team championships. Whoever wants to try and take them off of us, it’s not gonna be that easy. So [laughs] it was such a cool moment," Kai said.
Kai previously described how Bayley first brought up a faction with her in 2018. Her comments can be found here.
