New WWE Signing To Receive Major Push

New WWE Signing To Receive Major Push WWE

There has been another update on the WWE debut of a top new signing, who may be set to receive a major push in the company.

On the inaugural show of brand new all women’s Japanese promotion MARIGOLD on May 20, much-anticipated new WWE signing Giulia suffered a fractured wrist during her tag team match at Korakuen Hall.

While the timeline for Giulia’s injury recovery is not yet known, it did raise questions as to whether the Japanese star would be able to make it back to full fitness in time for her WWE in-ring debut.

These plans would reportedly see Giulia compete in a WWE NXT Women’s Championship match in her debut match for the company at NXT’s Heatwave PLE on July 7.

However, in an update from the Wrestling Observer Newsletter earlier today (May 24), Dave Meltzer stated that he was told by those close to Giulia in Japan that she would in fact not be debuting for WWE that soon, even before she got injured.

While that remains to be seen, Fightful Select’s Corey Brennan has added some new details as to how WWE view Giulia’s potential on NXT when she eventually does make her move stateside.

WWE reportedly see a big future for Giulia on Tuesday nights, and is set to be pushed as the  female face of the brand, with one NXT source in particular expecting her to surpass Asuka’s prolific run on the brand between 2015-2017.

Despite WWE’s big plans for Giulia, Brennan also noted that sources within WWE and MARIGOLD confirmed that the former STARDOM star will not be exclusive to WWE and NXT for “quite a while, if at all” upon debuting.

WrestleTalk will provide further updates on Giulia’s recovery and WWE debut plans as/when they become available.
