STARDOM wrestler KAIRI – formerly Kairi Sane in WWE – has revealed the differences between working in WWE and working in STARDOM.
KAIRI defeated Mayu Iwatani in the main event of the STARDOM/New Japan Pro-Wrestling crossover pay-per-view Historic X-Over, to become the inaugural IWGP Women’s Champion.
Prior to her return to STARDOM in February, KAIRI wrestled for several years in WWE, where she is a former NXT Women’s Champion.
During a recent interview, KAIRI was asked what the differences are between working in Japan and working in the US:
“In particular, I felt… the card isn’t fixed until the day of. It’s really right up until we go on air. If you know the card beforehand, you can put it together or plan out a strategy, right?
“But if you only find out on the day of, [they don’t] announce the card, not even to the fans. You find out when you get there.
“That is why, you can’t practice or prepare for your opponent’s moves. I was the kind to plan everything out.
“There were people you were facing for the first time, too. And it was all done live. Moreover, you had a time limit. You couldn’t go over time.
In Japan, you need to publicise the matches”
