Former WWE NXT Women’s Champion Kairi Sane left WWE in the summer of 2020 after her contract expired and went back to Japan to work in STARDOM.
According to PWInsider, the Pirate Princess has come to terms on a new deal with WWE and could return to the company as soon as this week.
She is scheduled to hold a press conference, where she’ll likely give an update on her status.
According to the Wrestling Observer, Kairi is scheduled to return to WWE in November:
“November. She’s got two more dates in Japan. I think that she’s scheduled for. She’s coming back. As far as that goes, there is something to that because, you know, she left because she wanted to return to Japan.
Then when her contract was up, she started working at STARDOM and it was kind of like, she was gonna be the big international star and knew Japan was gonna use her to come to the United States and things like that.
And I think that what ended up happening is then they signed Mercedes [Mone]. She ended up getting hurt, but they signed Mercedes to kind of take that spot. And, for KAIRI, I mean, obviously when Bushiroad took over and bought STARDOM, there was a lot of hope of, the idea of like, we’re gonna, you know, the talent will get paid more.
The Bushiroad wrestling side, which is more due to New Japan than STARDOM, has not been nearly as profitable as they expected it to be. Because New Japan business is down like this. G1 is like the prime example of it.”
There is a possibility she returns to reunite with Asuka, as she was paired with her as part of The Kabuki Warriors before she went to STARDOM. They even held the WWE Women’s Tag Team Titles together.
Sane was written off WWE programming after being attacked by Bayley on an episode of RAW in July 2020.
