Emi Sakura is heading back to the United States and AEW.
Sakura wrote on Twitter that she was heading to the United States on a one-way ticket and called out the AEW Women’s division.
“I decided to go to America with a one-way ticket,” she wrote. “Please look forward to what happens to #ChocoPro from now on. We are, ChocoPro & we like a challenge. Now #AEW Women Division, you better be ready, Emi Sakura’s looking at the top & @RealBrittBaker looks very interesting.”
Sakura appeared for AEW back in 2019, which included a high-profile match for the AEW Women’s title that took place in November of that year at Full Gear. She lost to then-champion Riho, then made a couple of more appearances before returning to Japan. She also competed in the AEW Women’s title contender tournament that took place earlier this year, losing to Yuka Sakazaki in the semifinals.
Sakura last appeared in ChocoPro on July 13, teaming with Yuna Mizumori in a losing effort against Mei Saint-Michel & Sakisama.
