The Pirate Princess has been off WWE television since May 26th. Her status and future within the company is currently complicated.
Kairi Sane has been on the sidelines after her injury in May. She suffered a huge cut on her head after being thrown into the steel steps by Nia Jax. The injury has forced her off WWE television since. Many have since begun speculating about her future in the company.
Kairi Sane’s WWE status is reportedly ‘complicated’
In the time since, Jax has gone on to feud with her tag team partner Asuka for the WWE Raw Women’s Championship. Kairi Sane’s WWE status on the other hand, is reportedly complicated according to Sean Ross Sapp of Fightful Select.
According to the report, the WWE originally wanted her to serve as an ambassador for the WWE in Japan. Although, there was no mention of how her non-wrestling role would have affected her career inside of the ring.
When asked if the ambassador role meted to Kairi Sane was a part of WWE’s expansion in Japan, Fighful were told that any plans to expand was off due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.
The report also notes that many in the company have been radio silent about her future within the company. There are still several people backstage who want to see her wrestle. Fightful also added that everyone they spoke to about the Japanese wrestler only had positive things to say about her.
