Kairi Sane is opening a new business in Japan. The superstar who was an in-ring competitor for WWE from 2016 to 2020 now serves as an ambassador for the company in her native country. Now, she’s going into business for herself.
Sane tweeted about the new opportunity. She said she wanted to show her appreciation for the support she received during her in-ring career. The gym is meant to be an inclusive space, and was inspired by gyms Kairi saw during her time in the United States.
“Roughly ten years ago when I first debuted as a pro wrestling, my first paycheck was $450. I had another part-time job to make a living while living in a small warehouse-like apartment, dreaming of one day becoming a champion. Through living days of constant defeat and failures, I made my dream come true to become a champion in both Japan and the US.
This was only possible because of the support I had from fans and the people around me. I’ve always wanted to show my appreciation to people in some form, and today, I am happy to announce the opening of a 24-hour fitness gym, PARA-FIT24. It is located in Shonan Ensohima Area, which is the sister city of Miami Beach City, often referred to as ‘Miami Beach of the Orient.’
Inspired by various gyms I’ve had the privilege to go to while living in the US. I want to offer a place where people of all ages, gender, ethnicity can gather and be happy. And through my knowledge and experiences, I want to support people’s mental and physical wellness. Giving back to society is my new dream, and I am looking forward to making it come true.”
After a successful run in Japan, Kairi joined WWE where she spent time in NXT and on the main roster. She is a former NXT Women’s champion. She also won the 2017 Mae Young Classic and was WWE Women’s Tag Team champion along with her partner, Asuka.
