In the topsy-turvy world of professional wrestling, no company is as active as WWE in the acquisition market. The wrestling giant has shown significant interest in one of the hottest names currently in the business, Japanese star Giulia, according to various credible sources.
In the latest reports from wrestling insiders PW Insider and Fightful, the situation is escalating at such a rapid pace that it has become clear; Giulia is seen as a priority acquisition for WWE. Notably, her performances in Stardom, a women’s professional wrestling promotion in her native Japan, have garnered high praise over the past few years. WWE’s interested has further been confirmed by the likelihood of the rising star visiting the Performance Center later this month, as reported on the 6th of November.
Parallelly, talks are quietly emerging that WWE is not the only brand with eyes on Giulia. Insider reports reveal that AEW (All Elite Wrestling) and Stardom had discussions about potential talent crossover, including Giulia. However, it remains unconfirmed if any creative plans had been developed in AEW for her.
Another compelling piece of news is related to Sareee, or Sarray as she is commonly known. PWInsider reported that Sareee was deep in negotiations with an American company, which was later clarified as Sukeban. Sareee inked a multiyear deal with the company in a move that saw several WWE sources indicate interest in bringing her back to the WWE roster.
Interestingly, the Sareee and Sukeban contract signing took place amidst indications that WWE was keen on having her back in their roster. While documented preliminary discussions were held for a potential comeback, there was no further progress as Sareee finalized her deal with Sukeban. Sources within the WWE assert that there is no bad blood from their end, adding that the move probably works out better for the athlete.
Triple H, WWE’s Executive Vice President of Global Talent Strategy & Development, has now been tasked with offering different talents with opportunities. Where does this leave WWE? With Giulia on the radar and several signings anticipated, WWE could soon flaunt a drastically different roster.
One thing is certain, the intense signing spree by WWE is only set to accelerate. As a pro-wrestling reporter, I can’t help but wonder if the influx of fresh talent could be the secret formula to reshaping the company’s future. Only time will tell.
