Io Shirai announced that she would formally join WWE when she appeared in a WWE ring during a live show in Japan. Shirai was a big name in STARDOM and could soon be a big win for WWE. Actually, she should have signed last year, but they have found a problem with her heart that has now been resolved and it looks like she has passed her medication. Now only the time will show how it is used.
Kairi Sane knows Io Shirai well from her STARDOM era. Dave Meltzer once stated in wrestling Observer Radio that Shirai was a much bigger star in Japan than Sane, so Kairi, who came to America, would travel to Japan like Kofi Kingston and soon make it big with a Mainventer.
It will be very interesting to have both in NXT at the same time. We can only assume that Io Shirai will go to NXT when you see how pretty much everyone is doing at the time, unless they are AJ Styles, Bobby Lashley or Gallows and Anderson.
The pirate princess looks destined to come to her old colleague and is ready for another game. Only time will tell if it will happen, but it seems a likely way to go. Translated from Japanese into English, Sanes Tweet said: "Finally, we look forward to hearing from you, IO-san !!!!!" with a picture of the two of their STARDOM days.
This is an exciting time to be a pro wrestling fan because Io Shirai's arrival at WWE is perhaps just the first of many big moves to come when WWE starts looking for a new deal with Fox Sports and all what belongs to it.
