KAIRI (Kairi Sane) Tests Positive For COVID-19, Will Miss STARDOM Show

KAIRI will miss the next STARDOM pay-per-view.

As first reported by STARDOM, KAIRI (formerly Kairi Sane) will no longer be at the upcoming STARDOM x STARDOM 2022 pay-per-view anymore. Because of “poor physical condition,” the former NXT Women’s Champion will be pulled from competition. She was originally slated to challenge Saya Kamitani for the Wonder of Stardom Championship on August 21st at the event. The champion, Kamitani, will now square off with Himeka.

KAIRI went to Twitter to later clarify her condition as a positive COVID result.

“This time, when I had a high fever of 39 degrees, I was tested and was diagnosed as positive for the new coronavirus.

So far, the chase for the title match on August 21st. Intensive training, condition adjustment, meal management, etc. I have prepared meticulously. Infected vs I was very careful about the measures as much as possible. I am shocked and full of regret. We apologize for the great concern and inconvenience for all concerned. I apologize from the bottom of my heart. And [for the fans], who were looking forward to the match, dear fans, I’m so sorry. Now, as soon as possible, I will deliver a healthy figure to everyone while keeping in touch with the public health center so that I would concentrate on recuperating at home. Please take care of yourself.”

KAIRI last wrestled on July 31st in a tag team match, amidst STARDOM’s 2022 5 Star Grand Prix. The 2022 5 Star Grand Prix will run through October 1st with the finals taking place in Tokyo, Japan.
