WWE’s global influence is impossible to ignore at this point and it looks like they might be even closer to snagging another huge international name. Io Shirai almost came into WWE last summer and actually had a deal on the table. But after a medical evaluation with WWE it was determined that she had a neck injury.
Shirai received clearance but it wasn’t before WWE rescinded their offer. But it looks like they could be getting close to coming to another deal because Io Shirai has expressed interest in giving WWE another try.
To make matters even more interesting, WWE has a tour of Japan coming up on June 29th and 30th. Io Shirai just dropped her Wonder Of Stardom Title as well leading some to believe she’s closer than ever to giving WWE another try after they nixed her deal last year and kept her from competing in the first-ever Mae Young Classic.
It sounds like Io could be getting closer to WWE and with another installment of the Mae Young Classic coming up soon some exciting things could be on the way.
WWE is touring Japan soon. Io has interest. She just lost the title.
