Kairi Sane called up to WWE SmackDown, teaming with Asuka

Kairi Sane has been called up to the main roster, but she isn't teaming with Io Shirai.

After teasing that Paige would be bringing a new team to the women's tag division, it was announced on tonight's SmackDown that Paige will be representing Asuka & Sane. Paige called them the next Women's Tag Team Champions.

Asuka, Sane, Bayley & Ember Moon defeated Women's Tag Team Champions The IIconics (Peyton Royce & Billie Kay), Mandy Rose & Sonya Deville in an eight-woman tag match on SmackDown. Sane pinned one half of the Women's Tag Team Champions, with Asuka hitting a reverse DDT on Royce and Sane giving Royce the InSane Elbow to get the win.

Bayley and Moon moved from Raw to SmackDown in the Superstar Shake-up.

Sane was a one-time Women's Champion in NXT. She also won the 2017 Mae Young Classic, defeating Shayna Baszler in the finals.

Sane challenging for Baszler's Women's Championship is airing on this week's episode of NXT. The stipulation is that Sane can't challenge for the title again if she loses.
