After it was previously reported that Kairi Hojo had signed a multi-year deal with with the WWE, Dave Metzler of F4WOnline is now reporting that fellow STARDOM star Io Shirai has accepted an offer from WWE to join the company.
Io Shirai is arguably STARDOM’s top star as well as one of the biggest women’s wrestling names in Japan. She was temporarily featured on WWE’s website during their March 2017 tryout trials until all mentions and photos of her attendance were subsequently removed.
The report also adds that both Shirai and Hojo had previously considered staying in Japan after receiving interest from WWE late last year. Hojo has since announced her departure from STARDOM.
