Dakota Kai attacks Raquel Gonzalez, Mandy Rose becomes NXT Women's Champion

Originally published at Mandy Rose becomes NXT Women's Champion on 10/26 WWE NXT 2.0

For the first time in her career, Mandy Rose is champion.

To open tonight’s NXT 2.0, Jacy Jayne and Gigi Dolin of Toxic Attraction became NXT Women’s Tag Team Champions. Later in the show, fellow Toxic Attraction member Mandy Rose pinned Raquel Gonzalez to capture the NXT Women’s Championship.

During the match, an individual in a cloak hit Gonzalez over the back with a shovel, later revealing herself to be Dakota Kai. Kai was last in action for the NXT brand at TakeOver 36 where she lost an NXT Women’s Title match to Gonzalez.

Rose capitalized and hit Gonzalez with a ‘Bicycle Knee’ to win her first championship in WWE.

Toxic Attraction is now in possession of the NXT Women’s singles and tag titles.

Prior to her return to NXT, Dakota Kai had been working dark matches before SmackDown beginning in early August.

Boy, John on Rewind-A-Raw kept saying it was “some dude” coming in, but I definitely thought it could be a woman, and sure enough it was. Nice seeing Dakota back.
