Io Shirai Fan Thread



A bit early, but seems like a done deal.

So hyped for her likely debut in the MYC. After that it's probably NXT to learn the WWE style for a bit, hopefully it isn't a long stay there.

She's too good for NXT, although I do understand a short stint there would be great for her. Will be awesome to see her kill it on Takeovers with a bigger stage and more freedom (compared to the main roster).

A photo from Io's last try out.



Any idea when the MYC will be aired?

Re: Io Shirai Fan Thread

Haven't seen that much of her yet, but so far yeah, she's clearly a standout.

When did she start getting called the best in the world? Last time I was keeping up heavily with promotions outside of WWE, that honor was still up to debate between Hamada/Kana/Ayumi Kurihara/ Sara Del Rey/ Cheerleader Melissa/ Madison Eagles...

but now it seems like mostly a consensus about Io being the BITW, so I was wondering when did it start?

I'm in no hurry to see Io on the main roster, personally. Hoping she's on NXT until at least the week after WM 35.

Roughly around 2014-2015, I think. It was definitely solidified by 2016.

Hiroshi Tanahashi/Kazuchika Okada/Minoru Suzuki/Daniel Bryan/Asuka

Samoa Joe/Tetsuya Naito/Tomohiro Ishii/Meiko Satomura/Jay White

Re: Io Shirai Fan Thread

I think she'll be in NXT a while. She needs to get used to the WWE style and learn english.

Re: Io Shirai Fan Thread

She will be in NXT at first and for a little while. Io Shirai is my pick to win the MYC and is a wildcard as well.

Re: Io Shirai Fan Thread

Can't wait for Io Shirai. In fact, can't wait to have Mayu Iwatani too. To have Asuka finally meet Shirai and Sane, where they could have more fluid matches since they would understand each other easily and the international TV or live audience won't decipher them easily too. Yeah, easily the fab four Joshi for WWE, thus a nice counterpart for the 4HW WWE and the 4HW MMA later on. Wow, the women could have stables of their own. And can't wait for the women to finally have their own show. Lots of talented and good-looking female wrestlers it seems, especially from Japan, and Mexico too.

During her 2015 World of Stardom title reign. I'd say that she is, but some people may exaggerate because of the title that she has. Then again, she has been outstanding this year.
