Kairi Sane no longer advertised to be in Asuka’s corner tomorrow on Raw

Kairi Sane, who was originally advertised to appear in Asuka’s corner for tomorrow’s Monday Night Raw, has been pulled from the match graphic, extending her absence from WWE television for over a month.

It is believed that the former NXT champion is returning to her homeland of Japan to be with her husband once her contract is up soon and will no longer be part of the WWE roster. Sane arrived in WWE in 2016 and was part of the Mae Young Classic, winning the tournament before making her NXT debut in 2017.

Sane last appeared on WWE television on June 1 in a match against Nia Jax. Kairi was injured during the match, suffering a big nasty cut on her head after Jax threw her in the steel steps from a short distance.

How WWE handles her departure is yet to be seen although some industry insiders hinted that the plan was for someone to do a career-ending injury angle with her and then whoever that person would be would face Asuka at SummerSlam.

Sane, 31, married her husband in February of this year.
