In a revelation that has taken the professional wrestling community by storm, PW Insider has confirmed that Kairi Sane, one of Japan's brightest wrestling luminaries, is gearing up for a remarkable return to WWE. Sane, celebrated for her riveting performances in the squared circle, had been a prominent face in the WWE roster between 2016 and 2021.
She then chose not to renew her contract, exiting the grand stage at the onset of 2022. After her WWE departure, Sane couldn't rest on her laurels. She returned to the revered STARDOM, a professional wrestling promotion in Japan, where she etched her legacy.
Rising swiftly through the ranks, Sane dominated the scene, cementing her position as one of the most skilled and captivating performers in Joshi wrestling today. Further diversifying her wrestling portfolio, Kairi Sane's star power was showcased when she clinched the inaugural IWGP Women's Championship under the New Japan Pro Wrestling banner.
Her reign, though impressive, came to an end after 90 days when the formidable Mercedes Moné defeated her. Sane's track record also boasts of prestigious titles during her WWE tenure, including the NXT Women's Championship and the WWE Women's Tag Championship.
SummerSlam: 'Pirate Princess' Comeback?
The air is rife with speculation and excitement. Fans are anxiously awaiting an official announcement about the exact date of her return. But if rumors are to be believed, tonight's SummerSlam premium live event, set to electrify Detroit, might witness the resurgence of the 'Pirate Princess' of wrestling.
The implications of her return are manifold. The WWE universe can undoubtedly anticipate the infusion of fresh narratives, potentially iconic rivalries, and a series of electrifying matches that could reshape the women's division.
Kairi Sane's previous exit left a palpable void; her imminent return promises to reignite the spark and rekindle old flames. One thing is sure: the wrestling world will be watching.
