KAIRI On Making A Possible WWE Return

Former WWE Women’s Tag Team Champion, NXT Women’s Champion, and IWGP Women’s Champion KAIRI have been talking about a possible return to WWE.

She had a successful run on NXT and WWE’s Main Roster until 2020 when she had to leave. According to most wrestlers, The Forbidden Door is always open. KAIRI spoke with Steve Fall of WrestlingNewsCo noting that the WWE Universe still thinks of her fondly while several wrestlers asked her if she’s coming back for the Royal Rumble every year. Through her Translator, Kairi said:

“Even now, the WWE Universe loves KAIRI. Even the wrestlers are like, ‘Oh you’re coming to Royal Rumble this year, right? You’re coming, right?’ It’s her favorite PPV of the whole year. She definitely wants to one day wrestle in the Royal Rumble.”

Then The Pirate Princess said that Vince McMahon told her that the door is always open for her to come back and if she does come back Kairi wanted to team with Asuka reforming “The Kabuki Warriors” or teaming up with IYO SKY stating:

“Vince said the door is always open, you’re always welcome to come back. If she comes back one day, she would love to team up with Asuka again, team up with IYO Sky, or maybe even go against IYO Sky. Who knows?”

When asked whether or not she sensed accomplishment with her first run on the main roster Kairi stated: “It’s a little bit of her both. She didn’t [completely] accomplish what she wanted to do because she was in a WrestleMania title match, but on the other hand, she didn’t get a singles women’s belt, so that’s still maybe one thing she would like to get next time.”

KAIRI stated in the interview that she is a free agent and wants to wrestle WWE or AEW talent. Recently Kairi lost her IWGP championship against Mercedes Monè at NJPW’s “Battle in The Valley” event.
