Former WWE NXT star Sarray says there were talks of her renewing her WWE contract but she saw her future outside of the company.

Sarray signed on with WWE back in 2020 but her debut in the company was delayed for a year due to the pandemic. The Japanese star eventually made her first in-ring appearance on the 20th of April 2021 edition of NXT television defeating Zoey Stark.

She remained a fixture on the brand throughout the year and even following the short-lived re-brand to ‘NXT 2.0’ but that came with a character change as her appearance altered thanks to a medallion given to her by her grandmother. However, her last match came in August 2022 when she lost to Mandy Rose and she has since left the company.

Speaking to WebSportiva, Sareee noted that there had been talks of renewing her WWE contract before her departure but wanted to be part of wrestling she “believed in”:

“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.”

Later in the interview, the star noted that despite not making it to the WWE roster, she has no regrets about her time in the company:

“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.”
