The 2023 WWE draft saw many NXT stars drafted to RAW or SmackDown, and former NXT Women’s Tag Team Champions Kayden Carter and Katana Chance were among those drafted to Monday Night Raw during the second night of the draft.
In a recent interview on Busted Open Radio, Chance and Carter spoke about their call-up to Raw and how it still doesn’t feel real.
“It’s just surreal. We’ve been working for this for so long and together as a team as well. We’ve had the opportunity to stay together for four years now as a team so, to be able to share this moment and finally be there, it just doesn’t feel real yet, it’s only been a week,” said Chance.
Carter echoed Chance’s sentiments, saying, “It hasn’t kicked in yet, it hasn’t kicked in yet.”
When asked if they knew about their call-up ahead of time, Chance explained that they were actually pretty sure they weren’t going to get drafted to either main roster brand.
“No. We actually were pretty sure it wasn’t happening. Not only did we not know, we thought we weren’t [getting called up]. Especially when the Women’s Tag Champs got brought up, we were like ‘Man, that’s the tag team that they’re taking and that’s it’, you know? Then, the very last [second], at like 10:30pm on Monday and we’re at the watch party and we were like ‘I think it’s over’ and then they just like, said our names and we were like ‘Wait, what’s happening? What brand did they even say?’,” said Chance.
For both Carter and Chance, their draft to RAW represents the culmination of years of hard work and dedication to their craft. As they begin their journey on the main roster, fans will be watching closely to see what the future holds for these two talented wrestlers.
