So much for that? A lot of people have left WWE over the last few years and not all of them have been voluntary. Several of them been forced out of WWE through a long series of releases, though that has not been the case every single time. There are a few people who have wanted to leave WWE on their own accord and that might be the case again, albeit in a slightly strange way.

According to, former WWE Women’s Tag Team Champion and NXT Women’s Champion Kairi Sane has removed references to WWE from her Instagram account. Instead, she is now listed as a former WWE and NXT star. Sane has left WWE as an active wrestler but has served as a non-wrestling ambassador in Japan. There is no word on whether Sane might be considering a return to the ring. There is also nothing to suggest any heat between Sane and WWE.

Sane was a heck of a star in WWE and NXT. Check out her time in the company:

Opinion: This is one of those situations that is not the biggest surprise, as Sane is thirty three years old and very well may just want to get back in the ring again, albeit in Japan. There is a chance that she just wanted to move on and I’m not sure how much WWE was going to fight to keep her around. Sane could be a much bigger star in Japan so maybe that is what she wants to do, and if, good for her.

What do you think of Sane? Where do you see her wrestle next? Let us know in the comments below.
