Now, 10 wrestlers who were a part of WWE’s developmental brand – NXT have been released and Dakota Kai is one of the biggest surprise names to have been released. Kai is a former two-time NXT Women’s Tag Team champion. She is extremely talented and after her release, fans have showered their supportive messages for the 33-year-old.

“.@DakotaKai_WWE is far & away one of the best wrestlers I have ever been in the ring with. And the gap is large…..now watch it grow. #KingKota”
