So far it seems to be all speculation about Io Shirai. As I have said elsewhere, at this point I think it would be far more realistic to see Shirai to appear in a role more akin to that of what Koto Ibushi played; a big star there just for the tournament as an exhibition, but not on a long term basis.

That said, the fact that as soon as Stardom found out about this, they had her drop the title could be indicative of more than just an exhibition.

As of now, with Kairi Hojo officially announcing her departure from Stardom and new contract with the WWE, the fact that the same news hasn't been broken about the much bigger star suggests she is going to stay in Japan in the long run.

If nothing comes in the very near future I would say it's safe to assume Shirai isn't signing a long-term deal with the WWE.
