Originally published at WWE NXT notes: Dakota Kai attacks Raquel Gonzalez, Franky Monet

Raquel Gonzalez has been reigning as NXT Women’s Champion since April. On tonight’s edition of NXT, Raquel and Dakota Kai took to the ring and Dakota opened up the door for a talent to come out and challenge Raquel. No one came to the ring and Raquel boasted about that by raising her title to the crowd. When she turned around, she was met with a boot from Dakota Kai.

There was a tag match on the 7/27 show that saw Franky Monet team with Jessi Kamea to take on Kayden Carter and Kacy Catanzaro. Monet took her first pin fall loss in WWE after Robert Stone got in involved and accidentally cost Monet and Kamea the match.

In addition to those matches, Johnny Gargano will meet Dexter Lumis in a singles match and if Lumis wins, he gets to date Indi Hartwell but if he loses, he’ll have to leave her be.
