WWE NXT Women’s Champion Io Shirai has shown her interest in being able to defend her title at the biggest event of the year, WrestleMania 37. In an interview with Justin Barrasso from Sports Illustrated, Shirai has not hesitated to explain that she would be delighted to fight in the Showcase of Immortals.
No doubt about it. WrestleMania is the greatest stage we have in this business and I have always wanted to compete under that focus, explained the Japanese, who has also given her desired rival for a fight at the event the legend, Meiko Satomura.
A match with Meiko Satomura would be a dream for me. Fortunately, he has joined NXT UK, so now it is a real possibility. I’m so excited, she stressed. The champion has also had words about her reign, which reaches 250 days after winning it in June.
I am very proud to be the champion in what is considered one of the most talented women’s divisions in NXT history. The fact that I was able to defend my title against a series of skilled opponents in such high-level fights has been a great experience for me he emphasizes.
But the champion has already said that she will continue to defend as best she can and with effort. I have every intention of defending my title to raise the profile of the NXT brand and its women’s division to continue to have quality matches week after week.
