On the most recent episode of NXT, Sarray made her long awaited debut defeating Zoey Stark.

Stark had initially asked NXT General Manager William Regal for the match, explaining that she wanted to face the best that NXT has to offer. And from she’s seen, Sarray fits the bill.

The match itself was a typically hard-hitting affair, interspersed with flashes of technical brilliance from the debutant. After Stark had failed with a 450 Splash, Sarray countered with a roll-up but Starks was able to kick out. But Sarray retained the advantage, hitting an Exploder Suplex to pick up a very impressive win.

Both women embraced after the bell as a show of respect, but were soon interrupted by Toni Storm.

The Japanese star had initially announced that she was joining NXT back in February of 2020, though she was unable to officially join the company due to the travel restrictions associated with the COVID-19 pandemic.

Sarray revealed in January 2021 that she had finally signed with WWE, but there was no news following her statement.

However, on the March 17th episode of NXT it was announced that Sarray would be heading to the black and gold brand.

This was followed on April 13th by a vignette saying that Sarray would be making her debut the following week.

Wrestling as Sareee, NXT’s new signing has previously appeared for World Woman Pro Wrestling Diana, SEAdLINNNG, and Sendai Girls Pro Wrestling.

The Japanese star is a former two-time World Woman Pro-Wrestling Diana World Champion, former Sendai Girls World Champion, and JWP Junior Champion.

Elsewhere on NXT, Kushida defeated via submission Oney Lorcan to retain the Cruiserweight Title. While Kyle O’Reilly returned to action, defeating Cameron Grimes in the main event.
