Raquel and Dakota looking to become two-time NXT Women’s Tag Team Champions.

The first-ever NXT Women’s Tag Team Champions Dakota Kai and Raquel Gonzalez will be challenging for the titles on the Stand & Deliver Kickoff show. The duo reunited on the 3/29 episode of NXT 2.0.

Toxic Attraction (Mandy Rose, Gigi Dolin & Jacy Jayne) were in the ring and confirmed that they ambushed Kai’s partner from the women’s Dusty Classic, Wendy Choo. This led to Kai coming out to the ring but the numbers game caught up to her. Raquel Gonzalez then made her way to the ring and helped Kai fight off Toxic Attraction.

Gonzalez and Kai faced off then embraced each other shortly after. They held up the NXT Women’s Tag Titles and it was made official that they’ll be getting their title match this Saturday.

Kai turned on Gonzalez in 2021 and their program concluded with a match at TakeOver 36 which Raquel won. Gigi and Jacy took out Raquel while she and Cora Jade were competing against Kai and Choo in the Dusty Cup.

Here’s a look at the updated Stand & Deliver lineup:

  • NXT North American Championship — Ladder Match: Carmelo Hayes (c) vs. Santos Escobar vs. Solo Sikoa vs. Grayson Waller vs. TBD
  • Tommaso Ciampa vs. Tony D’Angelo
  • NXT Tag Team Championships — Triple-Threat Match: Imperium (Fabian Aichner & Marcel Barthel) (c) vs. The Creed Brothers (Julius & Brutus Creed) vs. MSK (Nash Carter & Wes Lee)
  • NXT Women’s Championship — Fatal 4 Way: Mandy Rose (c) vs. Cora Jade vs. Io Shirai vs. Kay Lee Ray
  • NXT Championship: Dolph Ziggler (c) vs. Bron Breakker
  • L.A. Knight vs. Gunther
  • Kickoff Show: NXT Women’s Tag Team Championships: Toxic Attraction (Gigi Dolin & Jacy Jayne) (c) vs. Raquel Gonzalez & Dakota Kai

I actually hope Dakota & Raquel lose so that they can move on to hopefully better things on the main roster.

God bless your optimism (as far as Dakota is concerned at least).

It may have been on a live YouTube chat for POST where I saw the suggestion that Crazy 'Kota could become the sidekick for Crazy Becky, provided they go a new direction with Lynch after her haircut.
