For those wondering why KANNA (Kanna Shinmei) was shown in the crowd at NXT Takeover: Brooklyn, well, it turns out that she may have signed a deal with WWE. I was told by someone in the company that she has already signed and is expected to start with NXT soon. I don’t have a date on when she will start.
That explains why the announcers mentioned her name after Ric Flair and Sgt. Slaughter were shown on screen.
There were tryouts held last month in Tokyo but i’m not sure if she was part of them.
