Former tag team partners will face off for the NXT Women's Championship at TakeOver 36.

WWE has confirmed that NXT Women's Champion Raquel Gonzalez will defend her title against Dakota Kai at NXT TakeOver 36. The show is taking place on Sunday, August 22.

Kai turned against Gonzalez by laying her out with a kick on NXT two weeks ago. On last week's NXT, a video aired where Kai explained her actions. Kai took credit for putting Gonzalez in the spotlight and called Gonzalez selfish for going after the NXT Women's Championship when it should have been Kai's opportunity.

Gonzalez will respond to Kai on this Tuesday's episode of NXT.

Gonzalez won the NXT Women's Championship by defeating Io Shirai at TakeOver: Stand & Deliver this April. Gonzalez has since had successful title defenses against Mercedes Martinez, Ember Moon, and Xia Li.

Here's the updated card for TakeOver 36:

  • NXT Champion Karrion Kross defends against Samoa Joe
  • NXT Women's Champion Raquel Gonzalez defends against Dakota Kai
  • NXT United Kingdom Champion WALTER defends against Ilja Dragunov
