If I recall, he got caught up in some drama on twitter. He apparently cheated on Toni Storm, and it wasn't exactly...pretty. It's less burning them from a PR standpoint and more from a maturity standpoint. I think Hana is mostly grounded in real life, but WWE is probably gunshy still.

I thought it was something to do with him bringing people to the WWE hotel when Raw was in town.

Unrelated to Tyler Bate, but Meiko Satomura has been added to the number one contenders match for the KO-D Openweight Championship in KO-D.

Whatever wrestling Hana needs to improve on, her character work is really good and she makes a deliciously evil heel that has far and away the most personality on the Stardom roster.

Yeah, which is why its very likely she'll be picked up by WWE the moment she turns 21 and is out of her Wrestle-1 contract. If she can become somewhat fluent in English, she would probably do very well in WWE, even on the main roster. Especially since they seem to love heels like her. They would have to tone down a few of her mannerisms (she wouldn't be allowed to give people the bird anymore), and polish her ring skills, but she has a lot of potential. Not to mention if she's ever mishandled/mistreated, Vince runs the risk of pissing off Kyoko, who would probably kill him.

Anyone doubting Hana can go in the ring should check out her matches with Mika Iwata from Sendai Girls this year.

The second one was really great and probably slightly overshadowed by being followed by Io vs Meiko but it was really loving good.

Really happy for Isla. Talent but kinda hasn't gained a foothold in the US or UK as splits time in both being Scottish and being the girlfriend of Orlando based Alistair Black.

Killer Kelly is someone gaining a name in Europe quickly primarily due to her performances and wXw and a bunch of UK and Irish fans travelling to and watching their shows in Germany.

Killer Kelly is very good. Her going toe to toe with Absolute Andy in the mixed tag match in wXw recently was awesome.

Just a heads up, but Bradcat (guy who follows a lot of the joshi scene and lives in Japan) is covering the Io Shirai Q&A right now. The most important thing revealed so far is that Jungle Assault Nation should be pronounced as JAN instead of JOHN.

https://twitter.com/bradcat/status/1000339384674144256
I don't expect anything earthshattering to be revealed during this Q&A since WWE tells people to not reveal if they've been signed or not, plus if she has signed, its likely WWE springs the "surprise" (Dave, and others would likely find out beforehand and report on it) on everyone during the Japan tour.

I was wrong. Io wasnt exactly subtle in her interview regarding her intentions.

I mean, her and Charlotte would/will probably be real good, given how good Flair/Asuka was.
