Recently Departed WWE Star Turned Down Contract Extension WWE

Despite arriving to much fanfare and promise, former NXT star Sareee (FKA Sarray) is no longer with the company, with the 27-year-old departing WWE in March.

Prior to her exit Sareee would rarely feature on TV, last wrestling former NXT Women’s Champion Mandy Rose in August 2022.

While Sareee reflects fondly on her WWE experience, she was keen on a return to her homeland, however, as revealed in a recent interview with Web Sportiva, WWE did attempt to keep her in the company.

Sareee revealed:

“I didn’t fight on the main roster, but I felt that I had learned enough in WWE. I was able to absorb the spirit of entertainment that I had been missing.

“There was talk of renewing the contract, but I wanted to do wrestling that I believed in, and at 27 years old, I was at my most physically active, so I thought, I will regret it if I don’t do the wrestling I have wanted to do for a long time now.”

While reports had suggested that the WWE departure of William Regal in January 2022 was a ‘turning point’ for the Japanese star, Sareee would speak positively about her experience in the States following her exit.

Speaking to Web Sportiva, Sareee said:

“I think I have absorbed many things in my own way in WWE, and no matter what anyone says, I have no regrets about going to America.

“I think that everything I have learned in the past two years has been positive, and I want to show everyone a new, more powerful Sareee.”
