Kairi Sane is set to make a comeback to WWE.
After departing from WWE several years ago to pursue other opportunities, Kairi Sane is now set to make her return to the company. According to the report from PW Insider, Sane has signed a new contract with WWE.
Earlier in the day, the rumors also started swirling that she is already backstage at SummerSlam. However, PWInsider’s report does not state this thing in particular.

When Sane’s WWE contract expired, she made her way back to STARDOM in March 2022 and participated in her first match since July 2020, competing under the name “KAIRI.” Kairi Sane became the first IWGP Women’s Champion at the NJPW x STARDOM Historic X-Over event, where she defeated Mayu Iwatani.
On March 24, 2023, Kairi announced that she was a free agent. She continued to appear for Stardom after that also, but did not sign a contract with the promotion.
In her WWE career, Sane has won the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championship with Asuka, and she is also a former NXT Women’s Champion. Kairi Sane wrestled her last match in WWE on the July 20, 2019, episode of RAW, where she defeated Bayley.
It will be interesting to see which side will she take after her WWE return – WWE Women’s Champion Asuka or Ms. Money in the Bank Iyo Sky, as she has connections to both women.
