Hometown: Yamaguchi, Japan
Kairi Sane’s resume reads like the accomplishments of 10 athletes. Apart from the laundry list of championships procured in the Japanese women’s promotion Stardom — three-time “Goddess of Stardom” and four-time “Artist of Stardom,” to name a few — she was an Olympic hopeful in yachting, pursued a career in acting, holds a Bachelor’s degree in Japanese literature from Hosei University and once taught Japanese to orphans in Cambodia.
Given her jet-setting and worldwide accomplishments, it’s no surprise that Kairi sees herself as a modern-day pirate queen, sailing from port to port, meeting interesting people and beating them in wrestling matches. In the Mae Young Classic, she aims to add the most prestigious sports item to her accolades yet and make her mark in WWE. No doubt some of her foes will shiver their timbers when faced with this elbow-drop artist, but they’ll soon realize once the bell rings that it be too late to alter course now.
