And its also worth noting that the guy reports on rumors he has heard. He isn't a credible source of information. I mean for gods sake, he's also covered "stories" from people like Brad Shepard, Bill Bhatti, and other less reputable outlets.I've been listening to him for years and I've never known him to report on something that's just hearsay. Now I didn't personally check his or uncle Dave's sources but I trust Jason. The guy has blood cancer and no time for bullshit. He also couldn't care any less about being the first to break a story. Again, this isn't me betting my life that he's right, but he isn't the type to gossip just for the sake of have something to say
Sorry, but I'm going to take the word of Io herself over Dave (where he 100% got this story from), who has been fed bad info regarding NXT for awhile now.
Dave has been trying to spin a narrative that Io is unhappy, because STARDOM really wants her back (and he's trying to drive people to demand she goes back there), and he wants sources in Japan in order to drive up revenue for his services. Except his sources are Sonny and Rossy, both of whom have been caught in some fairly major lies recently. The Kagetsu and Hazuki situation is a good example. He claims both of them were forced out of the locker room and into retirement. Only Hazuki was. Kagetsu was always planning on retiring, and even addressed Dave's report on her personal blog, calling it bullshit.
Dave's connections to modern joshi or their lives is pretty poor at best.
Io has made it pretty clear she's not unhappy right now, contrary to what Dave says, or Solomonster says, who just took the story from Dave. He's no better than Wrestletalk, Whatculture, or Cultaholic in that regard.
