So Io Shirai held a press conference today to announce that she is taking time off to treat neck problems and undergo medical exams, (in Pittsburgh?) Meltzer mentioned that this might have been originally scheduled to announce Io leaving Stardom. I wonder if Io had some initial medicals for the WWE that threw up some flags that they want Io to check out further, preferably by their doctors, before they sign her. An interesting situation to follow.
NOAHs_Savior did a nice job making a beginner’s guide to current joshi wrestling. While it does nice work showing who's who to someone new, what it does best is point people towards other wrestlers that you should check out if you haven't ventured past the typical 'Stardom + Meiko Satomura matches' zone that most fans seem to stay in.
