Kairi Sane was hoping to return to Stardom in some capacity in 2021.
Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer reports Kairi Sane met with the offices in WWE Japan to appear at the Stardom 10th Anniversary event on March 3, but the talks "got nowhere."
Sane is currently living in Japan after being written off WWE television in July. She has continued to work for WWE as a promotional supporter and ambassador in Japan. She also provided Japanese commentary for WWE Hell in a Cell.
She last wrestled for Stardom in June 2017 prior to joining WWE, teaming with Hiromi Mimura & Konami and losing the Artist Of Stardom Championships to Queen's Quest (AZM, HZK & Io Shirai). In the main event, she competed in a gauntlet match against AZM, Hanan, Hiromi Mimura, HZK, Io Shirai, Jungle Kyona, Konami, Mayu Iwatani, Natsuko Tora & Ruaka.
Stardom 10th Anniversary is scheduled for March 3 at Nippon Budokan in Tokyo, Japan. An All-Star tournament will be held at the event.
