The report is specifically saying that New Japan sources did not confirm whether or not they were bringing in Naomi and that she was attending on her own accord. This could be to simply support Sasha Banks who is planning to be at the event.
Banks (Mercedes Vernado) is also reported by several sources to appear for Wrestle Kingdom 17. It is unknown to what capacity she will appear but according to Bushiroad CEO Takaaki Kidani stated that an appearance “is a possibility.”
Both women have not appeared in a wrestling-related moment since they walked out of WWE last May.
Wrestle Kingdom 17 takes place on Jan. 4 and features KAIRI defending the IWGP Women’s Championship against Tam Nakano.
