Ahead, we take a look at who is Kairi Sane dating now, who has she dated, Kairi Sane’s boyfriend, past relationships and dating history. We will also look at Kairi’s biography, facts, net worth, and much more.
A multiple time champion with STARDOM back in her native Japan, Kairi Sane found immediate success in WWE by winning the inaugural Mae Young Classic tournament. Beating out a field of 32 competitors from all over the world, Kairi is now in line for a shot at the NXT Women’s Championship vacated by Asuka.
Kairi is widely considered to be one of the best wrestlers in the world today and Shinsuke Nakamura himself, reportedly convinced her to sign for the WWE. Even though she’s made a name for herself in the West, a lot of WWE fans may have no idea about Kairi’s work back in her native Japan or how she got to where she is. With that being said, let’s look at some things fans need to know about Kairi Sane, the “Pirate Princess”.
According to the Wrestling Observer, WWE pursued Kairi’s signature for a while. The first offer from WWE came in 2016 but Hojo did not accept it immediately because she feared that her past concussion issues would be a big hurdle for her, especially with the hoopla over Daniel Bryan’s concussion issues.
However, Kairi’s fears proved to be unfounded as she passed WWE’s strict medical without much of an issue and soon won the inaugural Mae Young Classic tournament and she’s now getting ready to challenge for her first NXT Women’s championship. Needless to say, if Kairi had failed her medical, she wouldn’t have been signed by WWE
Unlike a lot of her peers like Shinsuke Nakamura and Asuka, Kairi’s dream was never to be a professional wrestler. After leaving university, Kairi left her other athletic interests behind to pursure a career as an actress which actually gave her her big break in pro wrestling.
One of her roles in the theatre, had Sane playing the part of a wrestling heel and it caught the eye of STARDOM promoter Fuka who just happened to be in the audience. Fuka approached Kairi and invited her to a STARDOM show and Kairi immediately fell in love with pro wrestling’s unique mixture of acting and athleticism.
After starting her training in 2011, Kairi made her pro debut in 2012. Although she got her big break because of her acting skills, Kairi’s in-ring skills have caught up and she’s considered one of the best on the planet right now, regardless of gender.
There are arguments with regards to the relationship status of Kairi Sane. While some say she is single and others say, she’s engaged to New Japan Pro Wrestling star HIDEO ITAMI, a former WWE Star.
HIDEO ITAMI is currently signed to New Japan Pro-Wrestling, where he performs under the mononymous ring name Kenta, and is a member of the Bullet Club stable.
Kairi had at least a relationship in the past. Kairi Sane has not been previously engaged. She was born and raised in Yamaguchi. She has a sister who is three years older than her. According to our records, she has no children.
Reports say that Kairi Sane is no longer happy being so far away from home as well as her boyfriend HIDEO ITAMI; and her boyfriend kicking that he wants to see her often. This could definitely play into her decision to leave WWE and return home especially with the big money offer coming from Bushiroad director Takaaki Kidani.
During Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer noted that STARDOM really wants Kairi Sane and Io Shirai to come back to Japan. It is said that they want to make them a very lucrative offer to leave WWE.
Like many celebrities and famous people, Kairi keeps her personal and love life private. Check back often as we will continue to update this page with new relationship details. Let’s take a look at Kairi Sane past relationships, ex-boyfriends and previous hookups.
