Kana Talks About Joining NXT, Her Relationship With Triple H & More
Earlier this week, WWE announced that Japanese women’s wrestler Kana officially signed with the company and will be reporting to the Performance Center in Orlando later this month.
In an interview with Brian Fritz of SportingNews.com, Kana discussed why the time was right for her to sign with WWE, her relationship with Triple H and which women she is looking forward to working with. Here are the highlights:
Signing With WWE:
“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.
Even though I was in Japan the majority of my career, I was always captivated by the allure of WWE and their worldwide appeal. There is no bigger stage in sports entertainment, so it has always been in the back of my mind.”
The Divas Revolution & The NXT Women’s Division:
“It has been very inspirational watching the Divas Revolution unfold over the past year or so. They are great competitors, and I am looking forward to getting in the ring with all of them eventually.”
Her Relationship With Triple H:
“He has been my favorite WWE Superstar of all time, so it has been amazing to interact with him and get his feedback. He told me he was expecting a lot from me, and I want to make him proud.”
Which WWE/NXT Stars She Wants to Work With:
“After witnessing Bayley win the NXT Divas Championship at NXT: TakeOver in Brooklyn, I knew she was somebody I would want to compete with. I want to be Divas Champion, so she is an obvious answer. I also have a tremendous amount of respect for Charlotte, and would love to get in the ring with her eventually also.”
