Kairi Sane is one-half of the WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions alongside Asuka and she has been on a roll as part of Damage CTRL. She has been embroiled in controversy after Mark Henry accused her of disrespecting the business at WrestleMania 40 and now she has broken her silence on the matter.

Mark Henry didn’t mince his words when expressing his disappointment with Kairi Sane’s behavior. He voiced his displeasure over Sane’s delay in leaving the ring as her WrestleMania 40 opponents—Bianca Belair, Jade Cargill, and Naomi—made their entrances.

The WWE Hall of Famer criticized what he saw as a lack of respect for the wrestling business on the part of the Pirate Princess. Furthermore, Mark Henry emphasized the importance of upholding wrestling traditions, hinting that had he been in the ring, he would have swiftly addressed the situation.

“Bully [Ray] and Tommy [Dreamer] both going to understand this when I say this. I’m saying if I was a girl and I was in that match and I get my entrance and I come in the ring and I wipe my feet and I stand in, step into the ring, and Kairi Sane’s ass is still walking in the ring, I’m taking her head off.


Give me the f*cking ring. I’m the guy. She should have got out the f*cking ring. I was so mad. You got to respect the business first. And she didn’t, but she would if I would have been in the ring.”

Dakota Kai would simply come to Kairi Sane’s aid and defend her in big way. Finally, Kairi Sane took to Twitter and responded to what Dakota Kai had to say, as she thanked Kai for everything.

”I love and respect you too🥰 Thank you for everything.”

While Mark Henry may have expressed disappointment with Kairi Sane’s actions, it’s clear that she has a strong support base within the industry. Ultimately, differing viewpoints are a natural part of the wrestling community, and what matters most is the respect and camaraderie shared among its members.
