Re: Kairi vs Asuka vs Shirai?
Asuka's the only one I knew way before she joined WWE. She has always been regarded as one of the Best in the world.
Kairi and Io I've started hearing about them around 2015 I think. Io was well regarded by many as the BITW, and still is, and Kairi as one of the top tiers as well.
Kairi has managed to impress me the most in the ring, I think she's an incredible all-around wrestler who can bump and sell her ass off. Such a shame we never got to see her work any real programs besides the one with Shayna.
Io I am the least familiar with but she's clearly a great wrestler from the matches I saw of hers before she joined WWE, and I get where the hype comes from, I saw a few clips of her heel turn and follow-up and she looks she's ready to be a mega heel, which is awesome.
Kairi is a natural face, I think with the right booking she could be cheered over Becky even. I think Asuka is the most charismatic for sure but I'd put her a step behind Io and Kairi in terms of ring work (I'd probably take 2011 Asuka over both though).
For me it's: Kairi 9.5/10, Asuka 9.25/10, Io 9/10.
On a side note, I hope WWE will be generous enough to give us this match one day..Joshi always works so well together.
