During the latest edition of her “Wilde On” podcast, Impact Wrestling Superstar Taylor Wilde gave some high praise to Io Shirai and noted that her “ultimate goal” is to be able to face her in a match. She said,
“I’ve been binging the shit out of NXT. I saw a few YouTube matches, just portions, of Io Shirai and I was in love. She is an incredible athlete and incredible wrestler, absent of gender. She is just amazing. I’m watching these full matches and, oh my god, I wanna be like Shirai when I grow up. She is definitely my dream opponent. I don’t know if I have it in me, but that is my ultimate goal, to have a match against Io Shirai.”
Of course, Wilde returned to Impact Wrestling last month and Shirai currently works for WWE NXT so the match won’t be happening anytime soon.
