To follow up on our report yesterday around Kairi Sane’s WWE future being ‘complicated,’ Dave Meltzer of F4WOnline has now provided a further update on her status.
Sane is planning to return to Japan with her husband soon, and the plan at one point was for Sane to wrestle one more year in Japan when her WWE contract expires, and then retire.
He noted she has now been cleared to wrestle after being injured by Nia Jax:
“The idea in play before the Sane-Jax legit injury was to do a career-ending injury angle with her later when it was time for her to leave, which was to set up Asuka against that person at SummerSlam for the title.”
He added that Nia Jax was not the person that WWE had planned to “end her career.”
