Sareee coming to WWE NXT, gets updated in-ring name

The NXT women's division is getting a new addition.

During tonight's episode of NXT, a video aired announcing that Sareee is coming to NXT. Her new in-ring name in WWE is Sarray and her nickname is "The Warrior of the Sun."

The 24-year-old Sareee is from Tokyo, Japan. World Woman Pro Wrestling Diana, SEAdLINNNG, and Sendai Girls'' Pro Wrestling are among the promotions she's wrestled for.

Sareee announced in February 2020 that she had signed with WWE and would be moving to the United States, but that was delayed a year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

This January, Sareee revealed that she would be having her final match in Japan before starting with WWE. She moved to the United States in February, but her signing wasn't officially announced by WWE until now. Her name wasn't listed among the recruits that reported to the WWE Performance Center in February.

That February class was touted as the largest-ever group of Performance Center recruits in history. WWE also stated that it had the most female recruits of any Performance Center class ever. The class included former Impact Wrestling Knockouts Champion Taya Valkyrie, Booker T trainee and indie wrestler AQA, Lacey Ryan (now known as Zoey Stark in NXT), Priscilla Kelly (now known as Gigi Dolin in NXT), Elayna Black (now known as Cora Jade in NXT), and indie wrestlers Camron Branae, Avery Taylor, and Karissa Rivera.
