It’s being reported that former NXT Women’s Champion and WWE Women’s Tag Team Champion KAIRI SANE is to leave the WWE.
The Wrestling Observer Newsletter is reporting that Sane, whose contract expires soon, will leave the WWE to return home to Japan to be with her husband. The WWE has apparently known about the departure since at least May. Before Sane was injured at the hands of a wild throw into steel steps by Nia Jax there had been plans for Sane to be written out of TV in a ‘career-ending injury’ angle. This would be at the hands of whoever would be lined up to be Asuka’s WrestleMania opponent. Plans have changed following that legit injury and backstage changes in the WWE.
Sane is a former NXT Women’s Champion and as part of The Kabuki Warriors with Asuka is a former WWE Women’s Tag Team Champion. The report from the Observer also claims that Sane may only wrestle for another year before retiring.
