Dakota Kai gave some major props to her fellow Damage CTRL teammate Bayley.
New Zealander Dakota Kai made her shocking return at SummerSlam by aligning herself with Iyo Sky(Io Shirai) and Bayley. The trio, which calls themselves Damage CTRL has targeted the likes of Becky Lynch, Asuka, Alexa Bliss, and the Raw Women’s Champion Bianca Belair.
So far, Kai’s new alliance has worked out for her on the main roster. Last Monday on Raw, she and Iyo Sky defeated the team of Raquel Rodriguez and Aliyah to become the new WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions. Although she became champion just last week, the title reign has already become her longest in the company.
The new champion recently praised her fellow Damage CTRL teammate Bayley on Twitter. For Hispanic Heritage Month, WWE released some never-before-scene photos of Bayley, who grew up in a Mexican-American family. Kai responded to one of the photos by calling the Hispanic star a “legend.”
Wow, a living legend

With two-thirds of Damage CTRL holding championship gold, Bayley has set her sights on Bianca Belair’s Raw Women’s Championship. At Clash at the Castle, Bayley became the first woman to score a pinfall over the EST in 2022. Now that she has a victory over the champ, it may be only a matter of time before Bayley is named the next challenger for the title.
