    STARDOM’s Io Shirai that is all I needed to see.

  • cunchofbunts

    Wonder why they deleted Io Shirai from the mention and photos… Kavaleva, I believe is a close friend of former NXT standout Anya.

    • Jose Antonio Atienza Lat

      I think Io is still in contract with Stardom so they honor that by not showing photos of her

      • Aaron

        She’s been very open with Stardom about her interest in possibly signing so, I could see why Stardom might have wanted to keep it quite. I pretty sure they knew it would get out anyway.

    • Aaron

      I don’t think she was technically at the tryout, she was invited to visit and asked to perform some basic drills. She has the ball in her court, she either signs or she doesn’t.

  • I don’t know any of this girls, I don’t watch much indie wrestling but I keep a bit informed. Hope WWE still scouting for the So anticipated Women’s tournament. ???

  • Kvngbalor

    I have to think that all these try outs and signings as of late as far as females go is for the women’s competetion for the WWE network NXT has about 30 females signed already most of whom haven’t even debuted on tv im kind of confused on the tournament will the winner receive a contract are they making a special belt will the winner win a shot at one of the women’s title im ready for details i would love a women’s show like 205 on the network tho

    • ralfikh

    • king valor

      Part of me thinks Asuka will vacate the title and the winner of the tournament gets her title. Not something i’d want though.

      • howie_ruhl

        Me too. I get that NXT wants to really capitalize on Asuka’s in ring skills and really build her up but as I said in the past, Asuka’s uber booking has already gotten so ridiculous that there are now only a few women in both NXT and MR who can beat her and not make the whole thing look ridiculous. She needs to lose the title. Heck, she needs to lose to someone while she can still do so.

        Payton and Billie have the numbers game always so they can eventually pull ift off after a drawn out fight.

        Ember can do it since her build is pretty much the same as Asuka’s albeit being a little less ridiculous.

        Nikki can do it because of Sanity and/or her unpredictability.

        One of these four women can be used to reign in the horror bookers have done to Asuka and that should be done before she gets to the main roster.

    • Miguel Orona Rodríguez

      WWE is going to do the tournament this year, so these experienced wrestlers are not for NXT. I’m sure after the “205 alike” show some of them may be on NXT or even the main roster.

  • howie_ruhl

    Io Shirai will be all that I need to have my edges snatched, girl.

  • Mark

    we dont care

    we want pretty girls now. we have enough wrestlers. i need another maryse, a trish, a mccool, a taryn, etc etc.

    • LoveEvaBella

      I agree the Women’s revolution signed great wrestlers but we miss the Diva Search era where they build a girl from scratch. With the facility and the trainer I think they can create a perfect woman from scratch.

      • Gabriella Panajotova

        *cough cough* Alexa Bliss, Carmella, Liv…why do you pretend WWE doesn’t sign people from all backgrounds?

      • Jesus’s brother

        There is the PC and NXT for that! Eva Marie for example

      • chrissi calvert

        That’s why they signed Eva Marie who has been lazy as hell and didn’t even want to learn the basics till issues with the ultimatum “learn how to wrestle or leave”

      • Seraphina Rosenhart

        Alexa Bliss and Carmella were both built from scratch in NXT. They had no prior wrestling experience. Mandy Rose as well.

        • LaurenYorkStan

          Mandy is a racist man who should be released

      • Mark

        Imagine if girls like Candice, Eve and etc who showed so much potential had the backing and training behind them that NXT offers now

      • Gato_wiska

        If they want to build a girl from scratch, They should get little girls and train them at PC until they are 18. Debut them on main roster at 21.

        Emma started wrestling at 16.
        Paige started wrestling at 13.

        They can get those struggling child actresses or those dance girls.

    • Gabriella Panajotova

      You have Carmella, Alexa Bliss, Nikki Bella, the actual Maryse…on the NXT you have Billie and Peyton, Ailyah, Mandy and Liv. You’ll be fine.

      • LaurenYorkStan

        Delete the last 3

        • Gabriella Panajotova

          I won’t delete anything. Grow up.

          • LaurenYorkStan

            BITCH WELL YOU NEED TO CAUSE ALIYAH WAS A INDY WRESTLER YOU DUMB ASS BASTARD

          • Gabriella Panajotova

            You are an idiot. One girl out of all of those I listed. Having in mind I forgot to add Lana…and you took THAT from my reply?

      • LaurenYorkStan

        Also the last 3 don’t even have the “model look”

        • Gabriella Panajotova

          Mandy was a fitness model… Point is those girls are not from the indies, they are homegrown talent. The thing yall complain.
          If you want bikini contests and B&P matches there is a lot of softcore porn out there that will fulfill your needs.

          • LaurenYorkStan

            Mandy looks like a dude and is racist and will be released soon

          • Gabriella Panajotova

            Well many people think she is hot af so… Point is maybe your standard of beauty is not universal. I know, shocker!

          • LaurenYorkStan

            Actually a lot of people think she’s ugly as fuck on the inside and out…like yo fat ass is

          • CH98

            So then you are calling Eva Marie a dude also.

          • Radical

            Correction. Billie, Peyton AND Aliyah are from the indies. Bllie was Jessie McKay, Peyton was KC Cassidy, and Aliyah was Jasmin.

          • Gabriella Panajotova

            I know about Billie and Peyton that’s why I specifically said I put them only because they have the model look. Aliyah I admit I overlooked.

    • Jesus’s brother

      u don’t know what u talk about! LOOL

    • Sass.

      Speak for yourself, hen.

      Whilst there have been a number of ‘model girls’ who have undoubtedly proved themselves over the years. I’d rather WWE focus on elevating the women’s division to the best it can be.

      • Mark

        Yes and for that you need a variety of looks and personalities x

    • Seraphina Rosenhart

      Most of the time though, just pretty girls don’t work out. They learn to wrestle, but not on the level of the current women that we have on the roster, unless they try really, really hard to improve like Nikki did. Plus, their wrestling skills are what counts. This isn’t the Attitude or Diva eras where what mattered was how hot a woman was.

      • LaurenYorkStan

        And just wrestlers don’t work out either they get boring as hell

        • Gabriella Panajotova

          It’s not just wrestlers. Are you kidding me? WWE has kept a good balance of people from wrestling background and from non-wrestling background.

          • LaurenYorkStan

            Okay then bitch same can be said for the pretty girls most of the models and actresses WWE hire except Eva has the entertainment part down way more than just the “wrestlers” do and have more personality and the models can always learn…shit that got the Performance center for crying out loud give them models a chance theirs plenty who love to do it but don’t know how

          • Gabriella Panajotova

            Are you retarded? I am telling you WWE already has this non-wrestling background talent. It’s not exclusively indy chicks.

          • LaurenYorkStan

            And they have enough indy dykes so what’s wrong with adding models you nasty ass carpet munching looking bitch

      • Mark

        Trish never became a Molly or an Ember Moon in the ring but has decade defining women’s matches. Candice would have gotten soooo far if not for her horrid injury. Michelle to me became one of the greatest female wrestlers of all time technically. Taryn Terrel became awesome but personal stuff got her fired. Maryse is one of the most charismatic women in WWE history imo. There is gold to be found with some of these models.

        • Seraphina Rosenhart

          True, but I also think that there’s gold to be found with the indy girls too, as we’ve seen with Asuka, Sasha Banks, Ember Moon, etc. I’m cool with having a few model girls, but we don’t need tons. They can absolutely turn into huge talents but it takes them some time to do so, whereas I find that indy girls are just more readily equipped.

    • LaurenYorkStan

      Yaaass

    • “We want pretty girls now.”

      *Name drops McCool*

      http://cdn2.crushable.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/08/Retta-WTF.gif

      • Mark

        Lol

    • Radical

      I disagree to some extent. If you bring in women with some level of a fitness background, it could create great things. I mean look at Alexa Bliss, that’s a prime example of someone not from the indies who is truly amazing at everything she does.

      But you can argue that there are MANY more attractive women on the independents who are much more attractive than models. Also you can’t garuntee that models will be as invested in the long run. Look at Ariane Andrews/Cameron and Eva Marie as prime examples of that.

      • KatyaMenelli

        Alexa is good on the mic…not so much in the ring but she’s improving.

        Cameron was a terrible example because she was invested in her job until she got released. She risked her job to attempt to get better in the ring. EVA was just lazy af.

    • Amy

      What the fuck are you talking about? All girls we have now on BOTH MAIN ROSTER AND NXT are pretty as all hell. I wouldn’t be surprised if you were to die single and virgin.

    • Guilherme Soares

      I feel you! but hey WWE signed some instagram models… Isabela Lahela is prettier than Eva and Alexa and Mandy Tose together and has the prettiest ass in the word too! Julie Real a sexy japanese model! Demi Bennet hot and cute! another instagram model that i don’t remember the name that they signed yesterday cute and hot too! Daniela Kamela sexy model too! Binky Blair fitness model and crossfit girl, a black hot one! we have Mandy, Macey, Liv, the Iconic Duo… and apparently WWE will contract more 4 instagram models, the ugly ones is just to make the fans believe that they change their vision about woman in WWE, but that’s not true! now they want pretty girl with talent

      now a gift to you about the new WWE recruit!

  • NXT has around 30 girls and rhey still want to sign more.. barely 5 women regularly appear on TV so idek why they insist on this.

    • Gabriella Panajotova

      Because this is developmental. Those who swim will make it those who sink will eventually be released. Nothing wrong with giving a pool of talent the opportunity to impress the trainers.

      • Sometimes even doing good will lead to releases just because they don’t feel like using more women. WWE is like that and they need to not sign everyone before figuring out what to do with the already signed people.

    • Gato_wiska

      They need 32 women for the tournament. Some of the tournament participants will go to main roster straight.

    • PYM #TheRoadTo5

      Are you dumb?

      • are you? can you even read?

        • PYM #TheRoadTo5

          But I know you can’t. Nor speak English.

  • Sass.

    Io Shirai is incredible. I would give my left tit to see her in WWE.

    I’m also interested in WWE bringing in more ladies from around the World. It makes things interesting.

  • glassjaw

    Io Shirai is just a huge bowl of <3

  • Seraphina Rosenhart

    Although NXT already has a ton of women, and really doesn’t need more, I’m excited to see Io Shirai. She’s a total badass, so I can make an exception for her.

  • Miguel Orona Rodríguez

    It seems that the tournament will take place, that’s the only reason WWE would contact experienced wrestlers.

  • Alex

    Seeing how they sort of bare a resemblance to each other I think it could be interesting to have Katsiaryna Kavaleva (if signed & makes it to tv) debut as Daria’s cousin. I also think it could be interesting to have them sport the same MMA inspired overall look and gear.

    alexl467

  • LaurenYorkStan

    I think it’s real cute how Diva Dirt deleted my comment and not that fat bitches Gabriella comment the hoe called me RETARDED

  • Radical

    So it might be that Shirai is WWE bound as well. Her plus Kairi Hojo? Damn, STARDOM are really taking heavy blows right now.

  • Gato_wiska

    If women will have a 205 like program, I hope this show will have undercard titles.

    Women’s tag team titles
    Lady’s champion

    Smackdown’s women’s championship, Raw women’s championship and NXt women’s championship can be defended there.

    • PoisonFelino#Watermelondrea

      I like that idea, except for the lady’s championship.
      I think too many singles titles might lessen the worth of already existing belts.
      But it would be great for the women to have their own show and feature all 3 belts on it as well as tag titles.

  • Gato_wiska

    Zhao Xia already have a WWE name. She is now named Nicole Zhao

    • PoisonFelino#Watermelondrea

      Uhhh Nice, hope we see her soon.

    • Radical

      So that’s what, three different iterations of Nikki? Nikka Bella – Nikki Cross – Nicole Zhao… They could have literally flipped her name and it wouldd have been better.

  • PoisonFelino#Watermelondrea

    I really hope Io is coming to WWE. I’m sure Stardom can recover by building new stars and If they don’t hold Io back too much it would be great for her career. Specially financially and exposure wise.
    Even if she leaves WWE within a few years she’d bring more attention to Stardom.
