— We are back with a video package for Samoa Joe.  

— We take a look back at what Dakota Kai did to Raquel Gonzalez last week.

Dakota Kai says she needed someone to trust 18 months ago.  Then she saw Raquel Gonzalez breaking combine records.  Kai says if it wasn’t for her, Raquel Gonzalez would be nothing.  Early on, it was simple.  Stand behind me, watch, learn, and be there when I need you.  You ran through everyone in my way.  You became a star in your own right.  I let Raquel get those victories.  Let’s be real here.  We all knew who the leader was.  At Takeover, Stand and Deliver and Io picks Raquel?  She didn’t think to give me the opportunity after giving her everything?  I plucked her out of obscurity and she stole that opportunity from me.  With my help, she beat Io and became the NXT Women’s Champion.

That should have been me.  I should have had my hand raised.  I should have been in the ring with Bianca and Rhea.  I expected Raquel to help me regain the tag titles. She did not put her heart and soul into anything else.  From that point on, I was known as Raquel’s side kick.  I am no one’s side kick.  The only person’s back I should be having is my own.  The funniest thing about all of this is she didn’t see it coming.  You are so oblivious to see that the person next to you was going to kick your head off.  You said there was no one left, how about me?  I brought you into this world, now I will take you out of it when I become Women’s Champion.
