That explains things. NXT has undergone several changes in the last few months, as the show has been relaunched as NXT 2.0. There are very few things that are still around from the old days, but you can still see some of the wrestlers who were around before. Unfortunately that has not been the case with everyone, and now we might know where one of them has been.
According to Fightful Select, NXT star Io Shirai is currently out of action with an injury. There are not many details known about the situation, including the nature of her injury or how long she will be out of action. Shirai last wrestled at NXT Stand & Deliver in Dallas, Texas in April and has not been seen on television since. The hope is that Shirai will return at some point this summer, but that is not guaranteed.
Opinion: That does explain a bit as there is no other reason to keep someone as talented as Shirai off of television for two months. Shirai is still one of the best performers in all of NXT and could easily hang with the main roster stars. Hopefully she is back on her feet sooner rather than later, as someone as talented as she is can add a lot by doing almost anything.
What do you think of Shirai? Who would you like to see her face? Let us know in the comments below.
