Popular wrestling, MMA and boxing commentator Mauro Ranallo has been in talks regarding a return to pro wrestling, under three years after departing WWE.
According to Dave Meltzer’s latest Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Ranallo is currently in talks with the brand new Japanese all women’s wrestling promotion based out of New York.
The promotion, which is set to attempt to authentically recreate the Joshi Japanese wrestling feel for a western audience, has already secured numerous top names including former WWE Women’s Champion Bull Nakano, Arisa Nakajima and Risa Sera.
Meltzer revealed more information about the up-start promotion, revealing a launch date as well as providing insight into their negotiations with Ranallo, writing:
Regarding the new women’s promotion featuring Japanese wrestlers, it’s debuting next month in New York but there is not a lot of info out, as we don’t have a place or location past that.
The only other thing we’ve heard is that there are talks going on for Mauro Ranallo to announce but the deal was not closed as of this week.
The debut show looks set to take place in New York in September, however, there is currently no confirmed date or venue for the show.
