WWE Superstars Kairi Sane and Io Shirai were seen sitting in the crowd during New Japan Pro Wrestling’s “Fighting Spirit Unleased” show in Long Beach, California.
Mauro Ranallo is also there and he was seen sitting in the front row.
Obviously, Sane and Shirai are there because they are fans of the product and because they are friends with wrestlers in the promotion. Ranallo lives nearby in San Jose.
At one time, it would have been unfathomable for contracted WWE stars to appear on camera in the audience or otherwise at another wrestling show. Times have changed.
