WWE Officials Reportedly Overseas To Talk Possible NXT Japan

Posted By Caroline Walsh on 02/07/19


The Wrestling Observer Newsletter reports that WWE sent officials to Japan this week to talk with different companies about business relations for NXT Japan. WWE goes to Japan several times a year for live events and has hired Japanese talent like Shinsuke Nakamura, Asuka, Kairi Sane, and Io Shirai.

Prior to starting NXT UK, they pulled in talent from all over the region over the last two years. They recently held the brandís first Takeover in Blackpool and opened the UK Performance Center.

This comes after Triple H said in an interview that the company was planning more Performance Centers for India, the Middle East and other locations.
