Former NXT Women’s Champion Io Shirai made her return to television during this week’s NXT. Shirai appeared to help guest star Poppy deal with Candice LeRae, who was angry at Poppy for causing issues for herself and Indi Hartwell. LeRae and Shirai would brawl, with Shirai clearing the ring. This was Shirai’s first appearance on NXT TV since April 20, when she was interviewed about losing her Women’s Title to Raquel Gonzalez at Takeover: Stand & Deliver.
