The former WWE star Kairi Sane recently made her return to in-ring action at Stardom’s World Climax Show. This marked the first time she made her return to the squared circle and worked her first match in the promotion in five years.

Kairi Sane returns to Stardom

She had teamed up with Mayu Iwatani to defeat the team of Tam Nakano and Unagi Sayaka in a tag team match. She took her team to victory by hitting her signature elbow drop.

She previously had a stint with WWE as she signed with the company in 2017, also the year when she won the Mae Young Classic. She would go on to win the WWE NXT Women’s Championship, and the Women’s Tag Team Championships once with Asuka.

However, she parted ways with the company back in July 2020 to be with her husband in Japan. She was an ambassador for WWE upon her return to the country. When the deal expired, she was free to sign with any other wrestling promotion. She announced back in February that she would be joining Stardom.

She has previously wrestled for Stardom under the ring name of Kairi Hojo from 2012 to 2017. She became a one-time World of Stardom Champion, a one-time Wonder of Stardom Champion, a three-time Goddess of Stardom Champion, and a four-time Artist of Stardom Champion. She will have her first singles match for Stardom since her return on Saturday where she will face Starlight Kid.
