Not that the vicious behavior of freshly turned Dakota Kai isn’t a great angle. The Captain of Team Kick carrying around her former best friend Tegan Nox’s knee brace as a trophy and weapon is a perfect example of how to use a prop to establish a pro wrestling character, and her motive (that friends like Nox and Candice LeRae didn’t stick up for her when Rhea Ripley left her off the WarGames team).
The match Kai had with LeRae on the Nov. 27 NXT was a pretty brutal affair, too. But in looking for something other than the likely concussion suffered by Undisputed ERA’s Bobby Fish on the same episode to include in their weekly injury report video, Matt Camp had to work overtime to make Candice’s busted lip sound like something serious.
He also dances around using the ‘c’ word when it comes to Fish, too.
Here’s this week’s video, and the brief list of what’s covered:
- Candice LeRae (stitches ruled out; ready to go with a few days rest) - oral lacerations on inner & outer lip
- Bobby Fish (not medically cleared; day-to-day)
