Stardom held its Nagoya Golden Fight event on Monday with KAIRI’s farewell match with the promotion.

KAIRI announced in August that she would be taking an “indefinite leave of absence” with Monday’s six-woman tag representing her final match with Stardom.

In 2017, KAIRI left Stardom to join the WWE and was part of the inaugural Mae Young Classic, which she won and became an NXT Women’s Champion and held the WWE Women’s Tag Titles with Asuka before leaving the company in 2021 and returning to Stardom.

It has been reported by PWinsider.com that KAIRI is expected to be returning to WWE.

In the main event on Monday, Tam Nakano retained the World of Stardom Championship and her next title defense will take place against Suzu Suzuki on November 18 in Osaka. Suzuki earned the title shot after winning this year’s 5 Star Grand Prix.

The show saw one title change as Mei Seira became the High-Speed Champion by defeating Saki Kashima, who held the title since May 27.

Here are the results:
*High-Speed Championship: Mei Seira over Saki Kashima ©
*Saori Anou over AZM
*UWF Rules Match: Syuri over Mina Shirakawa by KO
*Artist of Stardom Championship: Giulia, Thekla & Mai Sakurai over Suzu Suzuki, Maika & Megan Bayne
*Wonder of Stardom Championship: MIRAI © over Momo Watanabe
*KAIRI, Nanae Takahashi & Mayu Iwatani over Koguma, Hazuki & Saya Iida
*World of Stardom Championship: Tam Nakano © over Natsuko Tora

I follow The STARDOM event on Twitter and We know everyone is “crying happy tears” for KAIRI Sane and we hope KAIRI makes a “wish” for the Pirate Princess “worlds” of NJPW/STARDOM & WWE to form a partnership in Japan and the world so she can be happy and see her friends again someday! Can’t wait for KAIRI’s WWE return! Ahoy!
