After months of rumors, WWE has announced Io Shirai is in the midst of a tryout with the company … and the Stardom wrestler is there with a former member of TNA‘s Aces and Eights.
According to WWE.com, Shirai is at the Performance Center with 7 other hopefuls — including Ingrid “Kira” Hoftun, Kamilla “Natasja” Tjöstland, Chik Tormenta and Delilah Doom.
Former Olympic freestyle wrestler Jamie Espinal is there as well.
Also at the tryout is ex-TNA wrestler Wes Brisco, who is the son of WWE legend Gerald Brisco and worked for NXT‘s predecessor Florida Championship Wrestling from 2009-2011.
WWE.com’s initial article touted Shirai was attending, but it was quickly pulled and all mentions of the wrestler were interestingly removed when it was republished. A gallery of photos can be SEEN HERE.
