Io Shirai addresses fans in the ring at WWE live event in Tokyo

Io Shirai made an appearance at the WWE non-televised live event in Tokyo, Japan today, addressing the fans in the middle of the ring.

Shirai, one of the best female wrestlers on the planet, has signed a WWE deal and will join the ranks imminently. She participated in her final show with Stardom this week, clearing her way to join the company.

The 28-year-old Japanese sensation was on the verge of joining WWE one year ago but her WWE medical brought up a few red flags – including heart and neck problems – and it was decided that she should get healthy before another offer was made.

Shirai has been wrestling for World Wonder Ring Stardom since 2011, holding several titles in the promotion. With Shirai on the roster, WWE has Japan’s three of the most popular and best females on their books along with Asuka and Kairi Sane.
