STARDOM’s Utami Hayashishita Was Reportedly Invited To Visit The WWE Performance Center


It appears one of World Wonder Ring Stardom’s top talents may have taken a trip to WWE’s Performance Center whilst over in the States.

Former World of Stardom Utami Hayashishita currently finds herself in the United States, where she’s already featured on two shows for GCW, with another bout set for later today.

Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter is now reporting that fellow former World of Stardom Champion and current WWE Women’s MITB holder IYO SKY invited Hayashishita to visit the Performance Center during her stay, with belief being that Hayashishita likely accepted said invitation.

“Utami Hayashishita was scheduled to visit the Performance Center at the invitation of Iyo Sky. We were told about this ahead of time and not sure it happened but it probably did.”


Hayashishita is currently the leader of Stardom’s Queen’s Quest faction, a group that the former Io Shirai founded during her time in Japan.

On top of the 24-year-old reportedly paying a visit to the WWE PC, Hayashishita was also photographed training alongside both IYO SKY and Natalya, and thus, many fans have been speculating about whether WWE may be interested in bringing her into the company.

Regardless of any possible WWE interest, Hayashishita is set to return to Japan following her upcoming bout with LuFisto at tonight’s GCW event, having already defeated Billie Starkz and Janai Kai. Upon returning, she’s set to feature as a part of Stardom’s annual 5 Star Grand Prix tournament, with many pegging her as a favourite heading in.

As always, we’ll aim to provide any further updates on Utami Hayashishita reportedly being invited to WWE’s Performance Center as soon as we hear more.
