On Monday night, Kairi Sane bid farewell to the WWE Universe as she made her final appearance on Raw.
At the beginning of the month, reports surfaced that Sane’s contract had lapsed and she was heading back to Japan. Last night, Kairi confirmed that she is leaving the company in a heartfelt message via Twitter.
“My time in the NXT & WWE locker rooms was incredible,” she said. “Everyone was kind, funny, & talented, so every day was full of happiness. Also, I was saved by the supportive staff behind the scenes. I will forever love & respect all these professionals I had the pleasure of working with.”
“I was able to accomplish so much in the last three years,” she continued. “but it wasn’t because of my ability or my strength. It was because of all of the constant, warm support from the fans. I am so thankful I could meet you all. Thank you from the bottom of my heart, Kairi Sane”
Sane made her WWE debut on July 13, 2017, in the first Mae Young Classic. “The Pirate Princess” went on to become the inaugural winner, NXT Women’s Champion, and one half of the WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions.
While Kairi Sane is bidding farewell to WWE, Meltzer suggested she plans to wrestle for one more year in Japan before she retires. So, we could see her in a wrestling ring again soon.
