Changes to Kairi Sane’s social media accounts seem to indicate that the WWE ambassador is on her way out of the company.
Following Kairi’s match with Bayley in July 2020, the former WWE Women’s Tag Team Champion returned to Japan. In October 2020, Kairi confirmed that she had transitioned into an ambassador role.
Kairi has now removed “WWE” from her Instagram username. Her Twitter handle still is ‘@KairiSaneWWE’, but it’s worth noting that changes to Twitter names can affect verification status, so it is possible that is why that username remains the same.
Both Kairi’s Instagram and Twitter bios have been changed to note that she’s a ‘Former WWE Superstar’, however. These changes appear to hint that Kairi has left WWE. Neither WWE or Kairi have confirmed her departure, as of writing.
Kairi did recently hint at a return to the ring on Twitter, replying to a user who noted that he wants to see her wrestle again:

Sane first signed with WWE in March 2017, before winning that years Mae Young Classic, defeating Shayna Baszler in the finals. Sane pinned Baszler for the NXT Women’s Championship in August 2018, dropping it back to the Queen of Spades at the WWE Evolution pay-per-view.
Sane officially joined the main roster in April 2019 as part of the ‘Kabuki Warriors’ team with Asuka. The Japanese team won the WWE Women’s Tag Team Title in October 2019, before losing the gold to Alexa Bliss and Nikki Cross at WrestleMania 36 in 2020.
