Former NXT Women's Champion Kairi Sane is set to return to action for WWE in the very near future.

Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter at F4WOnline.com is reporting that Sane is expected to appear at the next Monday Night Raw tapings, which take place on Friday, July 3, from the WWE Performance Center in Orlando, Florida.

It is also worth noting, however, that Sane is also reportedly moving back to Japan with her husband, so her return may be short-lived.

There were plans for her to serve as an ambassador for WWE in Japan but that may no longer be the case.

Sane was banged up in a singles match against Nia Jax back on the June 1st edition of Raw after taking a buckle-bomb.

Prior to the real-life injury, WWE was going to write Sane off by using a planned injury angle, which would have led to a title showdown between whoever injured Sane and Raw women's champion Asuka.
