You may remember last month that NXT general manager and talent scout William Regal traveled to Japan for a few weeks and attended a SEAdLINNNG show at Korakuen Hall in Tokyo, Japan.
During the show he scouted talent, most notably Arisa Nakajima and Sareee to possibly take part in the upcoming Mae Young Classic that will be fiilming on July 13th & 14th at Full Sail University in Winter Park, Florida.
Trained by the Major Girl’s Fighting AtoZ promotion, Nakajima made her debut in January 2006, but when the promotion folded the following May, she transferred over to JWP Joshi Puroresu, where she became a two-time JWP Junior and Princess of Pro-Wrestling Champion. Nakajima retired from professional wrestling in June 2009, but made her return to JWP in April 2012. The following December, Nakajima won JWP’s top title, the JWP Openweight Championship, for the first time. She eventually went on to become a record four-time JWP Openweight Champion, while also winning the JWP Tag Team and Daily Sports Women’s Tag Team Championships twice, before quitting JWP in December 2016. The following month, Nakajima joined SEAdLINNNG.
Saree, 21, trained by Kyoko Inoue debuted in 2011 for the DIANA promotion in Japan is a former JWP POP and JWP Jr Champion, defeating Manami Katsu for the belt back in April of 2014. She is also a former Diana tag team champion. While she wrestles for Diana and SEAdLINNG she is a freelancer in Japan.
Both women were offered the chance to come to the US to train at the WWE Performance Center with the possibility of earning a WWE contract but it’s unknown at this time if they accepted the offer.
