Asuka and Kairi Sane wanted to be called ‘Kabuki Girls’

So says their manager.

WWE’s title for the above video is technically accurate, I guess. We don’t get an in-depth explanation for the name of Kairi Sane & Asuka’s tag team, but Paige does claim the Japanese women wanted to be called “Kabuki Girls” until she toughened it up to “Kabuki Warriors”.

It does drive home how little chemistry there seems to be between the three performers. But all signs point to their win over Mandy Rose & Sonya Deville being a springboard to a shot at Women’s Tag Team champs The IIconics, so... either they’ll figure something out, or we’ll have time to get used to the whole act - name and all.
