Io Shirai signs with WWE

Io Shirai, one of the biggest women’s wrestling stars in Japan, has accepted WWE’s offer to join the company, Dave Meltzer reports.

Shirai, 27, is considered one of the top wrestlers in the Stardom promotion. She had previously attended a Performance Center tryout back in March, though WWE quickly wiped out all mentions of her in an accompanying article.

She has been speculated to come in since the beginning of the year when Meltzer mentioned WWE was interested in both her and Kairi Hojo.
