Stardom held a press conference on February 18 as part of the lead-up to their double-header at Sumo Hall in March. They promised to pay off their recent storyline involving a mystery woman in negotiations with Rossy Ogawa to take part in the shows. It was revealed that the former Kairi Hojo/Kairi Sane would be returning to the company, now going by just KAIRI.
KAIRI Returns to Stardom
She is officially KAIRI (all caps, no last name).

Stardom did not wait around to set things up for KAIRI as she was confronted by Cosmic Angels members Unagi Sayaka and Tam Nakano. After some back-and-forth the two challenged KAIRI to a tag match, KAIRI suggested that Stardom icon Mayu Iwatani be her partner for the match. No date was given for that match but it is likely to be on Stardom World Climax Day 1, as Iwatani is challenging for the World of Stardom Championship on day 2.
KAIRI did not get a moment of peace as she was attacked by Stardom’s renegade group Oedo Tai, specifically Natsuko Tora, Starlight Kid, and Momo Watanabe. This will likely lead to a match on Day 2 of Stardom World Climax, although nothing was made official nor did KAIRI tease any potential partners for this match. Oedo Tai have been in the crosshairs of Queen’s Quest lately, specifically former world champion Utami Hayashishita who may team up with the former Hojo to get revenge on Oedo Tai.
