As reported last week, Kana has recently signed a deal with WWE to appear on their NXT brand. WWE has now confirmed that. Here is their official statement:
“WWE announced today the signing of international superstar Kanako Urai, aka Kana, to the NXT division. Kana will officially report to the WWE Performance Center in Orlando, Florida in late September.
Over the course of her 11-year career, Kana has become one of the most exciting women ever to compete in Japan. She has appeared in many organizations throughout the country and has held multiple championships. Last month, Kana made a surprise appearance at NXT Takeover: Brooklyn, sitting in the audience ringside next to WWE Hall of Famer “Nature Boy” Ric Flair.”
Triple H also reacted with the following statement:
“We are very excited to have Kana join the NXT roster. Her exciting in-ring style will make an immediate impact on the already impressive NXT women’s division.”
His choice of words could suggest Kana might appear on NXT sooner rather than later. Finally Triple H made the following comment on twitter:
