- On Twitter, Wrestling Observer Newsletter editor Dave Meltzer responded to a fan asking why Kairi Sane hasn't wrestled since NXT TakeOver: WarGames (on Nov. 18, 2017) and he said that she's currently "banged up."
Yes, she's banged up https://t.co/9ELlyUEzO8— Dave Meltzer (@davemeltzerWON) January 12, 2018
At NXT TakeOver: WarGames, Sane competed in a Fatal 4-Way Match against Nikki Cross, Peyton Royce, and Ember Moon to see who would claim the vacant NXT Women's Championship — Moon won after pinning Cross.
Sane last appeared on NXT television on Dec. 27, 2017. After Moon successfully retained the NXT Women's Championship against Sonya Deville, Sane appeared on the stage and gestured that she has the NXT Women's Title in her sights. "The Pirate Princess" was suddenly ambushed from behind by the person she beat to win the inaugural Mae Young Classic, Shayna Baszler. "The Queen of Spades" used a sleeper hold to render Sane unconscious before staring Moon down.
