NXT Superstar, Dakota Kai, has hit back at a fan on social media who criticised NXT’s women’s division.
Following NXT TakeOver: WarGames on December 6, a Twitter user responded to a tweet sent out by WWE On Fox which praised the division and the women’s WarGames encounter which saw both Kai and Candice LeRae sustain injuries.
The tweet in question compared both NXT and AEW’s female league, citing that the latter had more personality than NXT. It went on to erroneously call the talent ‘buff’, needlessly compared them to looking like men and labelled the rest as, “Japanese talent who dress like they’re in a bad pantomime.”
Clearly ignoring the glaring problems with AEW’s own women’s division which President Tony Khan and multiple AEW talents have opened up about, the tweet and it’s author gained a retort from a very annoyed Kai who replied:
“I’m sure that the AEW ladies wouldn’t appreciate your misogynistic views either, which very obviously stem from insecurities and low self worth.”

There have been comparisons between the AEW and NXT women’s division since the inception of the Jacksonville promotion, with the black and gold brand’s league widely regarded as the best and most diverse, stocked with names such as Rhea Ripley, Raquel Gonzalez, Toni Storm, Ember Moon, Dakota Kai, Io Shirai, Candice LeRae, Shotzi Blackheart, and man, many more.
At NXT TakeOver: WarGames, Dakota Kai suffered injuries after being Eclipsed onto a stack of steel chairs. She recently noted that we would not see her back in action for a while.
