Kairi Sane suffers cut to head during match at WWE Raw tapings


Kairi Sane suffered what is being described as a significant head cut during today’s Raw taping.

It happened during a match against Nia Jax that was taped for next week’s episode of Raw. According to Fightful Select, which first reported the story, the cut happened when Jax threw Sane into the stairs, with Sane's head connecting with the corner of the stairs.

At that point, the match was stopped as WWE medical tended to Kairi Sane, bandaging her up. According to Dave Meltzer,  Sane suffered a “significant” head cut.

Fightful further reported that Sane indicated that she was fine and insisted on finishing the match. Jax and Sane immediately went to the finish once the match resumed.

Next week’s episodes of Raw and SmackDown are being taped today at the WWE Performance Center. Announced for Raw next week is a non-title match between Asuka and Charlotte, Apollo Crews will defend the US title against an opponent of his choosing, and Seth Rollins will hold a Rey Mysterio retirement ceremony.
