Though Sane didn’t go into detail on who her friend is and what her promise entailed, the emotional message received an outpouring of support from WWE fans.
Nicknamed The Pirate Princess, Sane relocated from her native Japan to America after signing with NXT earlier this summer. She is currently competing in the inaugural Mae Young Classic, where her gutsy performances have earned praise from around the globe during her march to the Finals. The diminutive grappler was already an internationally renowned competitor when she came to the Classic, but her magnetic personality and captivating presentation have made her one of the tournament’s most popular participants.
Sane’s commitment to her best friend is just another reason to root for her.
