In one of the most anticipated matches on the card, Mercedes Moné challenges Kairi for the IWGP Women’s Championship at next month’s Battle in the Valley pay-per-view event in San Jose, California.
Kairi recently spoke with “Dark Puroresu Flowsion” and discussed the bout, as well as other topics.
You can check out some highlights from the podcast below:
On Mone: “I respect her very much. She has always been kind to me in private, and when I returned to Japan from America, she gave me many wonderful gifts. I still cherish them. I believe Mone and I can make a great match that people will remember forever.”
On her wrestling influences: “In WWE, Asuka, Iyo [Sky], Shinsuke, Becky Lynch, Bayley, Mone, Alexa Bliss, Candice [LaRae], Shayna [Baszler], and Nattie. Many others! Additionally, I have a lot of respect for my coaches Sara [Del Rey] and TJ Wilson.”
On a possible match with Jamie Hayter: “Of course! In fact, I never met her. But I often hear that she was very active in the STARDOM ring. Hello Jamie, I’m KAIRI! I hope you read this.”
