Raquel Gonzalez made an impact tonight on NXT, making an appearance in one of the key matches.
Gonzalez appeared toward the end of the Dakota Kai/Tegan Nox street fight that took place tonight in Portland, Oregon. Nox had Kai set up on a table and was about to launch off when Gonzalez cut her off. Kai escaped from the table, allowing Gonzalez to throw Nox through the table. The table didn’t break, but it was still enough for Kai to cover Nox for the win.
After the match, Gonzalez entered the ring and helped Kai to her feet, seemingly forming an alliance. Kai looked confused by Gonzalez’s involvement.
Gonzalez has been signed to WWE since 2016 and has worked for most of her run under the name Reina Gonzalez. She had previously tried out for the latest season of Tough Enough prior to her signing.
She competed in both Mae Young Classic tournaments, but lost both years to Nicole Savoy and Kacy Katanzaro in the first round, respectively.
