Io Shirai is on her way to WWE which likely means she’s going to NXT first because everyone goes to NXT first anymore. Her entry into NXT might come with a good amount of hype but that doesn’t mean she will have an easy time.

The former Stardom Champion has already faced Kairi Sane before and it sounds like the Pirate Princess is looking to get another piece of her former and future co-worker once again.

Bianca Belair also heard about Io Shirai coming to NXT and obviously, she isn’t worried either. Belair commented that Io will just be another indie worker that she’s better than.

It seems like Io coming in with all that attention might be putting an even bigger target on her back. Only time will tell how she will be used in NXT, but it looks like the line is forming to face her.

I love pro wrestling and hate BS. These two things drive me. Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News. Worked in finance before realizing pro wrestling journalism made much less sense. Pro beachballs at pro wrestling shows, pro dives if someone catches, anti bullies, olives, and pineapples on pizza.
