What’s the story?

As per Cagesideseats, Kairi Sane is set to receive a huge push in the WWE that will continue with an NXT Women’s Championship victory at Takeover: Houston.

Speaking of WWE management’s plans of according her a considerable push, Sane—who recently won the Mae Young Classic women’s tournament—earned herself a shot at the vacant NXT Women’s title against 3 other Superstars who’re yet to be declared.

In case you didn’t know…

Kairi Sane, whose real name is Kairi Housako, is widely regarded as one of the best professional wrestlers today.

The 29-year-old Japanese Superstar is a veteran on the Japanese pro-wrestling circuit, having competed on World Wonder Ring of Stardom; and now competes for the WWE’s NXT brand. 

The heart of the matter:

Several industry insiders agree that Kairi Sane’s first push came when she won the aforementioned Mae Young Classic. However, the WWE higher-ups now seem to be thoroughly impressed with her work and plan to continue her push.

Furthermore, not only is Sane likely to win the NXT Women’s Championship at Takeover: Houston this November but is also in a position to have her push continue after she wins the belt.

What’s next?

Kairi Sane competes in a Fatal 4-Way match for the NXT Women’s Championship at NXT Takeover: Houston which is set to go down at the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas on November 18th.

Author’s take:

Kairi Sane is extremely talented and an out-and-out entertainer not only on the mat but also on the mic.

With her English-speaking skills catching up to her wrestling prowess, the WWE has a legitimate star in the making—one that will not only draw in the audience from the Asian market but from the West as well.
