WWE NXT's Dakota Kai Teases Ratchet and Clank and Saga Ring Gear

WWE NXT fans know that Dakota Kai is lethal in the squared circle, but fans of the star also know she's a huge fan of all things comics and gaming. When she's not in the ring she is often streaming video games on Twitch or enjoying a comic, so it makes sense that she wants to at some point bring some of those loves into the ring with her. ComicBook.com recently had the chance to talk to Kai about several topics, and during the conversation, I had to ask if there was a character, comic, or game that she would like to base some future gear on. After Kai's reaction to the Ratchet And Clank: Rift Apart PS5 debut we suggest some Clank gear would rule, and she seems to agree, though she also would love to bring her love of the comic series Saga into the mix.

When we suggest some Clank gear, Kai said "Oh, that would be so cool", so that definitely seems like a winner. Clank's robotic design, giant green eyes, and little red antennae lend themselves to pretty much anything and could make for some sweet ring gear.

If comics is the theme, Kai has a great idea for that as well. "I also really loved the Saga comic book series," Kai said. "I don't know how well known enough that is in the mainstream world to do something like that, but that would be dope. I don't know. I think it would be too subtle. I don't think people would get it. It's too underground."

Social media sleuths have shown a knack for finding even the smallest easter eggs and references in WWE events past, and we imagine if she did bring some Saga gear to the ring someone would pick up on it and quickly find the panel, page, and issue it was based on (and honestly, it would probably be someone at ComicBook.

"Yeah, you're right. You're right. Even if it's just to pop one person, I would probably do it, because I would like it myself. You know? I have to like whatever I'm doing myself too."

We're definitely hoping this happens, so next TakeOver make sure to keep an eye out for Dakota Kai!
