It was in July of 2020 that KAIRI was last in action. She stepped away from WWE and returned to Japan but remained under contract with the company.

She did an interview with BIGLOBE on February 17th and was asked about her relationship with WWE. She said that it has been very good and she couldn’t thank them enough for it. KAIRI added that they offered her a special position within the company although she had returned to Japan.

The relationship with WWE has been very good, and I can’t thank them enough for that. Even after I returned to Japan, they offered me a special position, which I think was exceptional.

In early January, Dave Meltzer noted in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that KAIRI’s contract was set to expire this month.

Her last match in STARDOM took place in 2017 when she teamed with Hiromi Mimura and Konami to take on Io Shirai, Hazuki and AZM.
