Backstage News On Io Shirai’s WWE Future



As previously reported here on eWn, Io Shirai has not signed a new contract with WWE, and her current deal ends in August. She will become a free agent if she doesn’t sign a new deal.

Shirai has got one foot out of the door with WWE and is “pretty much gone,” according to Dave Meltzer on the latest “Wrestling Observer Radio.”

According to the original report, Shirai has been informing people in Japan that she would like to return home to be closer to her family. This is the same situation that former WWE star Kairi Sane was in, but she ended up staying with the company as a WWE Ambassador until her deal expired.

Shirai first signed with WWE in 2018 and is a former NXT Women’s and Tag Team Champion.
