In recent pro wrestling news, Sarray Sareee, a former NXT star, has made a definitive shift in her career. Despite rumors of WWE’s interest in bringing her back to the platform, she will not be returning. Instead, Sarray has signed a ‘multiyear’ deal with the American Joshi promotion Sukeban.
Not too long ago, WWE officials had their hopes set on luring Sareee back into the fold. According to Fightful Select, sources in WWE indicated that the idea of bringing her back was under active discussion. However, this speculation has been laid to rest since announcing her move to Sukeban.
The rumors of Sareee’s potential return to WWE were backed by PWInsider last week, pointing out that she might be considering returning to an American promotion, but not necessarily WWE. A fact that was confirmed shortly after. The road to a reunion may have been bumpy as WWE sources have now clarified that there was no formal offer tabled to Sareee, nor was it believed she had a desire to relocate to the United States once more.
While there were preliminary discussions and a genuine interest in roping Sareee back, things didn’t pan out. As one WWE source pointed out, “There’s no ill will on our side. We didn’t think she’d end up back here, there were no creative plans set for her, and she wasn’t contacted.”
The announcement of Sarray’s association with Sukeban comes on the heels of Kairi Sane’s return—with a substantial spotlight—at WWE’s Crown Jewel. While WWE may have lost out on Sareee, rumors are that the company may have yet another Japanese women’s star on their radar.
