Her Surprise Introduction To WWE
Dakota Kai recently sat down for an interview with WWE Deutschland. She discussed how she was introduced to professional wrestling and even revealed who her all time favorite wrestler is.
Kai explain in the interview how her younger brother was the one who introduced her to wrestling. Although she admits she wasn’t a fan beforehand, her brother would soon have her hooked.
“He used to watch it way back in the day. I didn’t really give it the time of the day because I was ignorant, I guess. But one day he told me to sit down and watch it and we were right in the middle of a Rock and Austin feud, a promo was happening in the ring, and that was my first introduction into pro wrestling.”
That introduction to wrestling by her brother gave her a new appreciation she once didn’t have. Kai continued to explain how that appreciation grew and she soon found herself in a ring.
“From there, I really appreciated the athleticism, the stunt work, and the different storylines that were happening. That was my introduction into pro wrestling and then I started doing it.”

The women’s tag team champion went on to talk about why The Rock is her favorite wrestler. Even sharing a connection with “The Great One” many fans may not know.
“He’s charismatic, athletic, but he’s also Samoan, which I’m Samoan too, so there’s a connection there.”
