Watch Kairi Sane’s Emotional Farewell To NXT And Her Best Friend


Former NXT Women’s Champion and forever Pirate Princess Kairi Sane was one of the names sent to Smackdown Live as part of this week’s Superstar Shake-Up. While her on-screen exit from NXT came with violence, her real-life exit came with tears. So many tears.

In the following video posted on the WWE Performance Center YouTube channel — which you should absolutely be watching on the regular, and what should be the basis for Smackdown Live’s “backstage” segments when it goes to Fox in the fall — Kairi says goodbye to familiar faces like Io Shirai and Candice LeRae, then shares a heartbreaking goodbye with one of her best friends, Xia Li.

“I’m happy for her, and also I feel so sad, because I can’t like, always see her in Orlando.” Us too, Xia. Us too.

I think the saddest line comes from Sane herself, when she explains her friendship with Xia Li. “Sometimes we feel lonely, because [we’re] from a different country. But we always help each other.”

We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again: Kairi Sane is one of our most precious natural resources, and should be protected at all costs. And hopefully when Xia Li gets the call-up, it’ll be to the same show as Kairi.
