Earlier this week, WWEofficially announced the signing of Kanako Urai, better known as Kana. Kana is an 11 year veteran and has spent the majority of that time as one of the top female wrestlers of Japan. More recently she has made some waves wrestling in the United States doing some work with SHIMMER. She recently discussed signing on SportingNews.com.
“I have been in this business for 10 years and have accomplished almost everything there is to accomplish. I was looking for a new challenge and when the opportunity came up with WWE, the timing just felt right,”
Kana said when speaking on why she choose to sign with WWE now. Kana would go on to say that WWE has always been in her sights, saying there is no bigger stage in sports entertainment. Kana would speak on the energy in the building when she appeared in the audience at the last NXT special, comparing it to a live concert.
“Experiencing that only reassured me that I made the right decision and I can’t want to get in the ring and compete,” Kana said.
Kana mentioned Bayley and Charlotte as competitors she would like to face and would go on to say that becoming Diva’s Champion is an obvious answer. CLICK HERE to read the interview in its entirety.
