Having now been out of action for over a month, Dakota Kai has now given on update on how her recovery from injury is going.
It was a surprising return to WWE for Dakota Kai, when she became a member of Bayley’s Damage CTRL faction alongside IYO SKY at last year’s SummerSlam. Having been previously released by the company, she was quickly brought back under the stewardship of Triple H and put in the prominent position, interrupting Bianca Belair and Becky Lynch following their contest for the Raw Women’s Championship.
Kai and SKY went on to have two reigns as WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions. However, when this run was going so will Kai got injured on the 12th May 2023 edition of Friday Night SmackDown, tearing her ACL whilst teaming with Bayley against Raquel Rodriguez and Liv Morgan.
Just one month on from the injury, and Dakota Kai has taken to social media to provide an update on the injury. She has seemingly been in a knee brace since the incident, but has now been able to have that removed.
I’m outta my brace and back wearing sweatpants with holes in the knees.

Although it seems her WWE return came about rather quickly, Dakota Kai did recently admit that there were some discussions with independent promotions ahead of getting the call from Triple H.
