According to The Wrestling Observer Newsletter, WWE Champion AJ Styles will once again be off live events this weekend as he is scheduled to travel down to Australia to do promotional work for WWE in conjunction with the announced WWE Super Show-Down event taking place in October.
Injured WWE Star’s Return Delayed
As noted, injured WWE stars Jason Jordan and Alicia Fox have been cleared to return to the ring, with Fox being given the green light to return on June 18th. While both superstars have been backstage at recent WWE events, it’s being said Jordan’s return to the ring is tentatively scheduled for sometime in July, as he awaits creative plans.
Io Shirai’s English Skills
One of WWE’s more noteworthy talent acquisitions as of late is Io Shirai, the Japanese standout who last had a contract offer from WWE rescinded after being diagnosed with neck issues.
Now that she has been cleared by WWE medically, she has been offered a Performance Center deal alongside names such as Keith Lee and Daniel Vidot.
It’s worth noting Shirai is a very good English speaker, and unlike fellow Japanese WWE star Asuka, will not have to learn much upon entering WWE. Shirai’s mother is an English teacher and taught Shirai English at a very young age.
