Despite the strength she found in a necklace given to her by her grandmother, Sarray appears to have wrapped up her time in WWE. According to a new report from Tokyo Sport, Sarray’s WWE contract has expired and the two sides ended their relationship amicably. She will revert to wrestling under the name Sareee and her in-ring return is set for the Shinjuku Face Tournament Sareee-ISM in Tokyo on May 16th.
Sareee’s announced that she had signed with WWE in 2020 but was unable to move to the United States until 2021 because of the coronavirus pandemic. Once she joined WWE’s NXT brand, she was given the new ring name Sarray and was prominently featured by NXT’s booker at the time, Paul “Triple H” Levesque. Despite her initial presentation as a top-tier talent, Sarray struggled to find consistency in NXT’s vibrant women’s division.
In January of 2022, a vignette aired featuring Sarray reflecting on a recent trip to Japan. She claimed to have cleared her head and found strength in an old necklace she found that had been given to her by her grandmother, who was a symbol of strength in her mind. Her newfound determination came with an anime-inspired wardrobe change as well as Sarray now sported pigtails and a schoolgirl outfit.
Sarray would go on to intermittently feud with Tiffany Stratton before randomly being re-assigned to the now-defunct WWE NXT UK brand. In her final WWE match, which took place in February of last year, she lost to Mandy Rose in NXT 2.0.
Sareee is set to host a press conference on March 13 to discuss her return to action in Japan. With Mercedes Mone’ currently holding the IWGP Women’s Championship and KAIRI back in the mix, it could be the perfect time for Sareee to be returning to Japan.
