- Kairi Hojo of Stardom has agreed to a three-year contract with WWE and is expecting to leave Japan for WWE around April to join the NXT women's division.
- The backstage rumor is that Shinsuke Nakamura has been pushing for her to come to NXT for several months and she has flip flopped on her decision before now finally telling Stardom officials that she's going.
- This is a huge blow for Stardom and the company feels they were misled through the entire ordeal. Hojo currently has two titles with the promotion and they want her to drop the titles before she leaves.
