Major Turn Takes Place At NXT Taping (SPOILERS)

Next week’s edition of NXT was pre-taped this week and it looks to be a can’t miss episode.

As well as a major return and confirmation of the NXT TakeOver 36 main event, we will witness a long expected betrayal that seems to set up the NXT Women’s Championship match at TakeOver.

During the show, champion Raquel Gonzalez made an open challenge to the roster to face her for the title.

When nobody answered, her partner and ally Dakota Kai took to the microphone to berate the roster and put over Gonzalez as the unbeatable force in the division with everyone else scared to face her.

After that she surprised her ally with a kick to the face and cemented a turn many have predicted since Gonzalez won the title from Io Shirai at NXT TakeOver: Stand & Deliver in April. The two have been aligned since Gonzalez’s debut as a permanent member of the roster in February 2020.

The match between the two is likely to take place at NXT TakeOver 36 on Sunday August 22nd.
