Dakota Kai last wrestled on the May 12 episode of WWE SmackDown when she teamed with Bayley in a loss to Liv Morgan & Raquel Rodriguez.
Kai has been sidelined with a torn ACL since then. Speaking on her Twitch stream, Kai gave an injury update. She said,
“Probably 2024. I do think it’s funny that a lot of people are like, ‘she’s not injured at all. Look at her walking around.’ ACL injury, I haven’t even learned how to start running and jumping again yet. I think I’m going to start running this week. ACL recovery, especially for someone in sport, we use our legs a lot. If I were a desk worker, I’d be back at work. Because it’s wrestling, I won’t be cleared until January.”
