As noted earlier, there were several returns to WWE SummerSlam, including some NXT names initially hired by Triple H a few years ago.
Io Shirai returned with Dakota Kai and Bayley to confront Bianca Belair and Becky Lynch. For Shirai’s main call, WWE has changed her name and per WWE.com she will be known as IYO SKY.
During the live broadcast, the announcers called her first Io Shirai and then IYO SKY so as not to ignore her past in NXT, but she will use the new name in the future. This may have been a phone call from Vince McMahon before he resigned as CEO of the company.
Looks like Triple H will be pushing the returning stars as he was very high on them when they were in NXT and it’s clear he was a big support for Dakota Kai otherwise he wouldn’t have brought her back after she had this before. year was released.
