Bianca Belair def. Dakota Kai
CHICAGO — Dakota Kai gained immeasurable confidence by finally standing up to the bully of the NXT Women’s division, champion Shayna Baszler. Yet, even a reinvigorated Captain of Team Kick could not halt the momentum of the division’s fastest-rising competitor, Bianca Belair.
The kick-loving Kiwi dug deep into her arsenal to batter The EST of NXT with strikes. A world-traveled veteran, Kai also exploited the few discernable holes in Belair’s game, taking advantage of her arrogance and inexperience. Yet, despite Kai’s smart strategy, Belair’s physical dominance proved to be too much.
After avoiding Belair’s blistering hair whip late in the match, Kai threw a roundhouse kick, but Belair ducked the strike, leveled Kai with a forearm shiver and disposed of her with a torture rack into a facebuster to extend her impressive winning streak.
Can The EST of NXT be stopped?
