Shawn Michaels Has Huge Praise for NXT Superstar

Last updated

WWE Hall of Famer and one of the greatest ever Shawn Michaels recently spoke to Justin Barrasso of Sports Illustrated. The Heartbreak Kid discussed a number of topics during the interview, including his praise of NXT Superstar Dakota Kai.

‘We have an incredibly talented roster, especially our women, but look at Dakota,’ Michaels began. ‘She’s a special one. Let’s use the WarGames match [from December] as an example.”

“Look at the a’”kicking she took, bouncing around and getting back. That’s an art, and she’s mastering it” HBK added.

‘What you see Dakota doing, I always pictured myself in that role because I wanted to Ping-Pong around the ring for my opponent,’ Michaels added. ‘That’s one of the reasons I became who I became in the business, so watching Dakota, I am so impressed.’

Shawn Michaels finished by saying that whilst he sees the talent of Kai, there may be some others who underappreciate her. ‘I don’t want to say she feels under the radar, but I don’t know if everyone gets or appreciates everything Dakota Kai does and everything she brings to the table,’ HBK said.

‘She is such a workhorse. She’s really helped propel Raquel, and I keep going back to that WarGames match. She is unbelievable, and doesn’t think twice about the sacrifice that is involved and necessary. She works to the hilt, which is hard not to like and appreciate.’
