Io Shirai and Kairi Sane both have open invitations to return to Japan. Bushi Road, the parent company of STARDOM and NJPW have told them that they are free to come back if they wish. Io might take them up on that offer.

During Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer commented that Io Shirai is “not necessarily happy” in WWE at this time.

There are a couple of reasons why she’s not so happy. She was making more in STARDOM than she is in NXT. Her fiance, NJPW wrestler Evil is also in Japan. The separation from Evil is also something she could do without.

We’ll have to see if Io Shirai leaves WWE. They could always call her up to the main roster as a means to give her more money. That won’t bring her any closer to Japan.

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.
