2. Aja Perera
The SHINE Nova Champion is already well on her way to building a lasting legacy in independent women’s wrestling, and her title alone demonstrates how much faith the scene has in her future. She’s already competed in Japan a couple of times, but a sustained run at Stardom would only build her reputation and momentum at this crucial moment in her career.
Perera is fleet and agile in the ring, which might make her a perfect foreign challenger to the High Speed Championship, a role currently fulfilled by, among others, NXT UK star Xia Brookside. Whatever the angle, Perera would certainly shine even with such a diverse and talented roster, and make a big impact, both in Japan and around the world.
