Dakota Kai def. Taynara Conti
Dakota Kai’s return to NXT action was a resounding success after sitting on the shelf for nine months.
Kai, who hadn't competed on NXT TV since undergoing surgical repair for a torn ACL last December, shook off some early ring rust to weather an initial flurry from Taynara Conti. The Captain of Team Kick showcased a new, seemingly more aggressive edge that served her well in a winning effort against Conti and was showered with "Welcome Back" chants from Full Sail Live.
Last year, Kai built momentum as one of the NXT Women’s division’s fastest-rising stars, and she appears poised to pick up right where she left off.
