- Above is video of Japanese star Kairi Sane talking about making it to WWE for The Mae Young Classic. Sane says she wrestled in Japan for 5.5 years but now she's here with WWE NXT so she's not used to a lot of things but everyone has been so kind and she's living a full life. She admits she's nervous about the tournament but says she's more excited than nervous. She wants to win the tournament but she also wants to stand out among the other 31 competitors. Sane also talks about her Pirate Princess nickname and her diving elbow drop. She says she's been following the success of Asuka and she's inspired by that success. Sane has a lot of respect for Asuka and wants to follow in her footsteps.
