Kairi Sane thanks everyone for her time in WWE.
Sane's time with WWE is done as her contract has reportedly expired and will not return to the company. On tonight's episode of Raw, Sane was attacked by Bayley in the middle of Asuka's Raw Women's Title Match against Sasha Banks, forcing Asuka to go and help Sane out and allowing Banks to win the title by count-out.
After the match, Sane went to Twitter to thank the company and the fans for the last few years of support. Sane is a former WWE Women's Tag Team and NXT Women's Champion and is also the winner of the inaugural Mae Young Classic.
My time in the NXT & WWE locker rooms was incredible. Everyone was kind, funny, & talented, so every day was full of happiness. Also, I was saved by the supportive staff behind the scenes. I will forever love & respect all these professionals I had the pleasure of working with.--— KAIRI SANE (@KairiSaneWWE) July 28, 2020
I was able to accomplish so much in the last three years, but it wasn’t because of my ability or my strength. It was because of all of the constant, warm support from the fans. I am so thankful I could meet you all.— KAIRI SANE (@KairiSaneWWE) July 28, 2020
Thank you from the bottom of my heart,
