WWE Signs Top Free Agent, Confirmation Ahead Of WrestleMania 40 WWE

A top free agent is reportedly confirmed to be signing with WWE after popping up making appearances during WrestleMania 40 weekend.

It was reported last night that former STARDOM booker Rossy Ogawa and former STARDOM star Giulia were backstage at SmackDown.

It also wasn’t a secret that they were in Philadelphia with Ogawa having taken photos with a few WWE names that emerged online, and Giulia attending WrestleMania fan event WWE World.

The belief going back months has been that Giulia will join WWE after helping Ogawa start up his new promotion in Japan.

The story is that she had already given Ogawa her word she’d do that before the interest from WWE became prevalent, and she wanted to stick to her promise.

Fightful Select is now reporting that NXT sources state Giulia will be reporting to the WWE Performance Center upon completion of her remaining dates.

A move straight to the main roster is reportedly “ruled out” – she will be starting in NXT.

Management are reportedly happy with Giulia’s progress in learning English, and are said to not be concerned about the perception of her being ‘too stiff’ in the ring.

People in NXT believe Giulia may be shown in the crowd during Stand & Deliver today, in the throwback style of announcing new signings during TakeOver events.

We’ll keep you posted with any further updates.

Stay tuned for all the news during WrestleMania weekend including NXT Stand & Deliver today.
