KAIRI is off this weekend's Stardom x Stardom pay-per-view due to testing positive for COVID-19.

The former Kairi Sane revealed her positive COVID-19 test in a statement posted to Twitter on Wednesday night. She tested positive after having a fever.

In her statement, KAIRI apologized for having to miss Stardom x Stardom.

KAIRI was scheduled to challenge Saya Kamitani for the Wonder of Stardom Championship at Stardom x Stardom. Kamitani will instead defend the title against Himeka.

"KAIRI will miss this weekend’s Stardom x Stardom ppv event due to poor physical condition. We apologize for changes to the card, and thank you for understanding," Stardom announced.

"With KAIRI out of action this weekend, Saya Kamitani said she wants to put the Wonder of Stardom title on the line against Himeka, if she will accept. Himeka said she doesn't get many chances like this, so she will accept, this Sunday at Stardom x Stardom 2022!"

Following the expiration of her WWE contract, KAIRI returned to Stardom earlier this year.
