It was widely reported yesterday that Kairi Sane had left WWE and was heading back to Japan to be with her husband, but according to a report by Fightful Select, this isn’t the case.
Next week’s episode of Raw has already been pre-recorded and Fightful is reporting that the former NXT Women’s Champion was part of the show. This past week on Raw, Sane defeated SmackDown Women’s Champion Bayley and it was believed that the company had sent her off on a win.
While the site has revealed that Sane is part of the show, it’s not clear what part the former Women’s Tag Team Champion actually plays in proceedings.
There are rumors that there could be an injury angle played out between Sane and Shayna Baszler that would allow the Japanese star to be written off WWE TV and it would also set up a RAW Women’s Championship match between Asuka and The Queen of Spades at SummerSlam.
Sane’s contract has now expired, but it’s believed that WWE is doing everything that they can to keep her with the company and prevent her from signing with other promotions.
The star has been offered several roles in Japan with WWE which include ambassador and trainer, but it’s unclear if Sane has taken WWE up on any of these offers.
