NXT star Sarray has given her first comment after it emerged she was set to leave WWE and head back to her native Japan after spending two years in 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.

Tokyo Sports reported that Sarray will be leaving the promotion when her contract expires.

Taking to social media, Sarray commented on her departure, thanking the company and the fans for her time in the US:

No matter what some people might say, I did my best. I am so glad that I had the chance to go to WWE Thank you WWE, Thank you Sarray, Thank you WWE Universe”

A press conference will be held on March 13th where Sarray will discuss her future plans but her first match back in Japan has already been announced. Sarray – who is known as Sareee in Japan – will compete on a show entitled Sareee-ISM on May 16th at Shinjuku Face in Tokyo, Japan. It is not known yet who her opponent will be or where her long-term future lies.
