Asuka and Kairi Sane made a name for themselves in NXT, and both won the NXT Women’s Championship before transitioning to the main roster.
Asuka had one of the best storylines coming into the main roster, as she carried her impressive undefeated streak with her and only gave up her NXT Championship after an injury. Sane, on the other hand, moved to the main roster soon after winning and losing her NXT Champion at the hands of Shayna Baszler, but still managed to take her following with her while making the jump.
After Asuka achieved some success as a singles competitor on the main roster and even won the SmackDown Women’s Champion in the process, the company decided to pair both Japanese Superstars and turn them into a tag team.
The duo, called The Kabuki Warriors, are now WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions, and we could see them become even more successful in the months to come.
In this article, we will look at eight things you didn’t know about The Kabuki Warriors.

Similarly, 'The Pirate Princess' has also been part of a different sport in the past. Kairi Sane was an avid yachter who competed at the national level while in college. She took part in many World Championship events for her native country and even dreamed of making it to the Olympics one day.
Even though she never managed to make it that far, she keeps the memory of her past achievements alive by bringing a piece of her passion to the ring, and working 'The Pirate Princess' persona.
