Dakota Kai On WWE Releases: "No One's Ever 100 Percent Safe"

She doesn't take her spot for granted...

NXT star Dakota Kai recently took part in an interview with The Sporting News to discuss a number of topics regarding her career. In the discussion, the recent wave of WWE releases came up, among which several other women's wrestlers from NXT, such as Deonna Purrazzo and Taynara Conti, were let go.

When asked how it felt to see some of her peers affected by the cuts, Kai responded, "It is genuinely heartbreaking watching all of that go down along with the rest of the world, we see it all unfold. As you said, a lot of those people were my peers. It's such a tough time. 

"But it's tough for every company right now. WWE is in the limelight. All of that stuff was made public. I know that even back home, my brother still has his job, but a lot of people in his company were let go. My sister, she's a fighter over in Bali. Everyone's struggling. It's just such a strange, sad time."

Kai also perceives that nobody is untouchable as far as their job goes, adding, "No matter what your position is in the company, it is always that sort of unknown, right? No one's ever 100 hundred percent safe, so it was terrifying in that sense. I'm super grateful to still be able to do what I'm doing."
