Dakota Kai def. Nina Samuels – NXT UK Women’s Championship Tournament Quarterfinal Match
BIRMINGHAM, England – The NXT UK Women’s Championship Tournament kicked off in Birmingham, as Dakota Kai took on Nina Samuels. From the start, Samuels used her height and power to gain the advantage, as she worked to weaken Kai’s lower back in order to prevent Kai from getting on a roll with her signature kicks. Samuels’ assault included a series of submission maneuvers, a dropkick to Kai’s back and an excruciating tilt-a-whirl backbreaker.
Not to be denied, Kai came roaring back with a flurry of strikes and her punishing kicks before securing her place in the Semifinals by hitting a Chiropractor (the code red into an inverted backstabber) for the win.
