KAIRI was one of the best female pro wrestlers that WWE had at one point in time. She had a solid run in NXT, where she ended up winning the NXT Women’s Championship. Rumors suggest that she will be returning to WWE and now it appears Sane confirmed she will be going on hiatus while such rumors persist.

KAIRI parted ways with WWE’s weekly television programs and moved back to Japan. She earned her degree while there and maintained an ambassador gig with WWE. Many believed her contract with WWE expired, and that was the case as her contract ran out last year.

Kairi Sane went on to compete in STARDOM as well as NJPW on numerous occasions. However, she is currently a free agent and then reports have also suggested that the Pirate Princess is making her way back to WWE.

While speaking at a press conference, Kairi Sane officially announced that she is set to take an “indefinite hiatus” at the end of September, as she used her loss of the IWGP Women’s Championship in February 2023 to Mercedes Mone as a factor in her decision.


Kairi Sane is expected to return at the end of the year and not earlier than that. We will have to wait and see what WWE will have planned for The Pirate Princess once she returns to the company.
