KAIRI is off this weekend’s Stardom x Stardom pay-per-view after revealing she has tested positive for COVID-19.

The promotion issued a statement on Thursday noting that KAIRI was off the card “due to poor physical condition”, which is the standard explanation given, KAIRI updated everyone with a tweet of her own that confirmed her positive COVID diagnosis.
