Tegan Nox Comments on Her Storyline With Dakota Kai, Tonight’s Cage Match, More


During a recent interview with Sports Illustrated, Tegan Nox commented on her cage match with Dakota Kai on tonight’s NXT broadcast, and more. You can check out some highlights from the interview below:

On what she wants to prove tonight: “I want to prove to everyone watching and those who have ever doubted me that you can overcome any obstacle. People doubted me because of my knee injuries, but now I’ve had my first TakeOver and now I’m in a steel cage on NXT TV live on the USA Network. That’s something not many people can say they’ve done, especially coming from Wales in a hometown that is so small. Dakota [who is from New Zealand] and me, we’re the first two very female athletes from our respective countries against one another in a cage match, and that means a lot to us.”


On what sets this cage match apart from others that happened recently: “The advantage is we’re the only two females that have had a steel cage match recently. That helps us, and our story is so personal. Dakota and I went through knee injuries, and we’ve come back. The expectations are high, but we can meet them.”

On what she’s proud of during this storyline: “I’m most proud of the passion we bring out in fans. They’re so divided as to which side they’re actually on, which is so cool to see. It’s a personal, personal story, from being best friends and training together every day, going through rehab together, and now we’ve taken it to another level. As heartbreaking as it was to split, we continue to bring the best out of each other.”
