In her first interview since signing with the WWE, Japanese wrestling veteran Kana spoke to Sporting News about why she chose to join the WWE, the Diva Revolution, transitioning to an American audience and the Divas she’s most interested in facing.

On why she decided to join the WWE, Kana framed it as taking on a new challenge:

“I have been in this business for 10 years and have accomplished almost everything there is to accomplish. I was looking for a new challenge and when the opportunity came up with WWE, the timing just felt right.”

She also revealed that the WWE has always captivated her, explaining:

“Even though I was in Japan the majority of my career, I was always captivated by the allure of WWE and their worldwide appeal. There is no bigger stage in sports entertainment, so it has always been in the back of my mind.”

Kana called the Diva Revolution “inspirational”, expressing her excitement to be apart of it:

“It has been very inspirational watching the Divas Revolution unfold over the past year or so. They are great competitors, and I am looking forward to getting in the ring with all of them eventually.”

When asked about Divas she’s looking forward to competing with, Kana singled out NXT Women’s Champion Bayley and second generation Diva Charlotte:

“After witnessing Bayley win the NXT Divas Championship at NXT: TakeOver in Brooklyn, I knew she was somebody I would want to compete with. I want to be Divas Champion, so she is an obvious answer. I also have a tremendous amount of respect for Charlotte, and would love to get in the ring with her eventually also.”

She also expressed confidence on transitioning to an American audience, believing that her experiences with SHIMMER and CHIKARA have prepared her:

“Having already experienced American crowds I think will definitely help me with the transition. No matter where the crowd is, it is always about getting some sort of reaction, and I don’t think I will have any problem with that.”
