Raquel González & Dakota Kai made history at NXT TakeOver: Vengeance Day, knocking off Shotzi Blackheart & Ember Moon to win the first-ever Women’s Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic.
González repeatedly overwhelmed Blackheart & Moon with her unparalleled power, proving to be the x-factor. Blackheart & Moon turned the tables early when Blackheart dodged Kai’s facewash kick in the corner, and they traded holds targeting Kai’s legs, leaving her in desperate straits.
That was until “Big Mami Cool” once again found her way between the ropes, dominating both foes and brutally rag-dolling Blackheart into the ringside plexiglass.
Despite being caught in a 2-on-1 situation, Moon rallied to land the Eclipse on González before Kai prevented the referee’s count.
Again and again, Moon & Blackheart hit González with their best, but González simply refused to stay down.
The imposing powerhouse neutralized Moon by sending her crashing off the stage, then launched Kai onto Blackheart for a big splash before dropping Blackheart with her thunderous one-armed powerbomb.
Capping a dominant tournament run, González & Kai ensured their names would be the first etched on the Women’s Dusty Cup.
