Evolution is just over a month away and given the body blow that WWE has been handed with both Sasha Banks and Alexa Bliss on the injured list in the space of a week, the company could have defaulted back to the usual format of calling up the women from NXT.
Dakota Kai recently updated her Instagram page to show that she was in Denver, Colorado ahead of tonight’s Raw and since the New Zealand native has just been handed the news that her Team Kick partner could be out of action for the best part of a year with a suspected broken leg, it could be that WWE has decided to call in Dakota Kai in place of Sasha Banks.
If the Women’s Tag Team Champions are set to become a reality at Evolution then WWE will need to build up a few tag teams ahead of the show and Bayley and Sasha Banks were seen as the favorites.
The former Women’s Champion has recently been updating a number of cryptic tweets which have fans questioning what the star could be thinking heading into Evolution.
With no matches currently announced for Sasha or Bayley for Evolution, it could be that Dakota Kai is ready to step in just in case Banks isn’t cleared in time since Kai has the most experience when it comes to tag team wrestling.
Obviously, this is just speculation, Kai could just be traveling and in the same location as Raw tonight, but since there are no updates as to where Kai is right now or if she’s been spotted backstage, it is unknown as to whether or not the NXT standout will make her main roster debut tonight on Raw.
