WWE has a lot of former talent out there who haven’t joined forces. It seems that now one dream partnership is going down in Japan.

One of the participants in that dream team is KAIRI, previously known as Kairi Sane in WWE, who signed with WWE in 2017. She began her journey in NXT, where she achieved the remarkable feat of winning the NXT Women’s Title in 2019 before transitioning to the main roster.

During her time in WWE, she formed a successful tag team called the Kabuki Warriors alongside Asuka, and together they held the WWE Women’s Tag Team Titles. After briefly returning to Japan in July 2020 and working as a WWE ambassador, KAIRI’s contract expired in February 2022. She then joined STARDOM and later became the inaugural IWGP Women’s Champion in NJPW.

The other participant is Sareee, also known as Sarray, who joined WWE in February 2020 following a successful career in Japan. After a period of being underutilized and not appearing on NXT television for several months, she departed from WWE in March.


Excitingly, it has been recently announced that these two former WWE stars will team up on August 4 for Sareee’s self-titled wrestling show, Sareee-ISM Chapter II, taking place at Shinjuku FACE in Tokyo.

In the main event of the show, they will face off against the team of Arisa Nakajima from SEAdLINNNG and Takumi Iroha from Marvelous, promising an action-packed encounter.

We’ll have to see what the future holds for Kairi and Sareee. They bid WWE farewell for their own reasons, and now they are both doing their own things in the pro wrestling world.
