Dakota Kai Reveals SummerSlam Return Was Last Minute

Dakota Kai Reveals SummerSlam Return Was Last Minute WWE

WWE star Dakota Kai has revealed that her SummerSlam return was last minute.

At SummerSlam 2022, Bayley made her return from injury and she wasn’t alone.

Bayley was joined by IYO SKY, who was also returning from injury, and Dakota Kai, who was released from WWE in April. The group confronted Raw Women’s Champion Bianca Belair, who was joined by Becky Lynch.

Appearing on the latest edition of WWE’s The Bump, Kai discussed her return to WWE at SummerSlam and how it came to be.

She said:

“Honestly, it still feels like a whirlwind to me with everything that happened. It all happened so last minute too. To be talking with you guys is insane to me. Everything that happened since Saturday has been insane. It’s been crazy.”

When asked about working with Bayley and IYO SKY, Dakota answered:

“Bayley and I, we’ve been kind of talking about something like this for a long time. It hasn’t been something that was spurred overnight. This has been something we’ve wanted for years. The fact that it actually happened and to be under her guidance is insane because she’s literally amazing and great. IYO and I, we’ve known each other a long time, when I first went to Japan and she is literally one of the best in the world. To be alongside these two women is a dream. Everything that’s happened is something you think of in a fever dream, you don’t think it’s really going to happen, but the fact that it has and I’m alongside these two amazing people is crazy.”

The new group of Bayley, IYO SKY and Dakota Kai made their presence known on Monday’s Raw where they attacked Becky Lynch’s injured shoulder.

The stable also attacked both Alexa Bliss and Asuka during their singles bout and later IYO SKY went to a no contest against Bianca Belair.

One of Bayley’s tweets following SummerSlam may have revealed the faction’s name, which you can read here.
