Kairi Sane was one of the best female pro wrestlers WWE had at their disposal at one point in time. She had a solid run in NXT where she ended up winning the NXT Women’s Championship. It seems she opened up about her time on the WWE main roster as well.

Her main roster run saw her teaming up with Asuka, as they were known as the Kabuki Warriors and saw moderate success. They won the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championships as well.

While speaking with Proresu TODAY, Kairi Sane revealed that she was very nervous teaming up with Asuka when they were first paired together. In the end, she was quite happy working with the Empress of Tomorrow.

“I was happy from the bottom of my heart [teaming with Asuka]… I was very nervous at first, and she was a big senior and someone I admired. I was very nervous, but she was very kind and friendly, and said with a smile, ‘If you have any questions, just ask!’ Since I was a heel, I thought I would be booed more, but I was surprised at how many people cheered me on. I think people accepted our new style, or the fact that we broke new ground. We had a lot of fun doing it, and we laughed a lot backstage.”


Sane also made her return to the pro wrestling world during recent STARDOM event. Kairi Sane also recently stated that she has good relationship with WWE. We wonder if the Pirate Princess will ever make her way back to WWE somewhere down the line or not.
