NXT Women’s Champion and Kairi Sane and fellow NXT star Io Shirai attended tonight’s New Japan Pro Wrestling event (Fighting Spirit Unleashed) in Long Beach, California.
Also in attendance for the show is play-by-play announcer Mauro Ranallo, who is sitting front row. None of them were identified by the commentary team, but Sane and Shirai were spotlighted during a crowd shot on camera.

Sir Mitch Says: All three of them have friends who work for NJPW so it’s not surprising that they would want to attend the show. I hope they got permission to attend the event because if not…WWE higher-ups will not be pleased by this!
