Japanese wrestling star Sareee confirmed today that she has signed with WWE.
She made the announcement at a World Woman Pro-Wrestling Diana show earlier today. She said that she would be moving to the United States in March. WWE has yet to confirm the signing.
The news comes following a Tokyo Sports interview from Sareee in September where she expressed interest in signing with WWE. An interview with Triple H in July, also from Tokyo Sports, indicated that there was interest from WWE’s side as the two met in Tokyo during a WWE tour.
Sareee, 23, started wrestling in 2011 and was trained by Kyoko Inoue. She has wrestled extensively for Diana since her debut, where she has won their World championship twice and their Tag Team championship once. She had most recently lost the Diana World championship to Ayako Sato back on January 4.
She also had a brief run in Seadlinnng in 2017. However, she left the promotion after six months and rejoined Diana immediately after.
