Kairi Sane returning to the ring at NXT house show in Florida


Though she suffered a concussion at the Mae Young Classic tapings last month, Kairi Sane (formerly Kairi Hojo) is set to make her NXT house show debut this week.

WWE advertised today that Sane will be in action at NXT's show in St. Petersburg, Florida this Thursday. Most of the television roster will be on the road while that event is going on, with a tour beginning in Los Angeles, California tonight before stops in Bakersfield, San Jose, and Sacramento.

Pro Wrestling Sheet first reported that Sane suffered a concussion at the Mae Young Classic tapings and was dealing with some neck pain, though it was noted that she was expected to be cleared to return in early August. Her working the show in St. Petersburg would mean that has happened.

Sane's first WWE match will be made available on the Network when the first four episodes of the Mae Young Classic are released on August 28th. The next batch will be uploaded on September 4th, then the final match will air live on the Network at 10 p.m. ET on September 12th.
