– The plan right now is for the NXT Women’s tournament to be taped in either January or March of 2017. It will contain primarily an international field with some female talent already having been contacted and told to make themselves available for those months.
– In a followup to a previous story about Japanese women wrestlers from Stardom leaving for WWE, it appears that Kairi Hojo will also be coming to WWE along with Io Shirai. Both are not expected in WWE until at least May but Stardom is still pushing hard to retain Hojo as losing both wrestlers would be devastating to the promotion.
