Really sorry about this guys, I feel a little silly as I don't know where to post this but me and a friend are attempting to go to wrestlemania in 2017. We are from England and we aren't sure where to get tickets from or when they go on sale ( I'm guessing either on the network or from ticket master, guidance would be nice) also cost would be great as again it is always vague when I research online.

From the Observer:
Speaking of women, it now looks like Kairi Hojo is coming with Io Shirai. Stardom knew last week that Shirai was leaving and Hojo was on the verge, and was pushing for Hojo to stay noting she'd be their top star. Right now both are scheduled to stay with Stardom through about April of next year. Shirai will have her 10th anniversary big show on 3/20 at Korakuen Hall and that will be her last major event. Hojo will have a homecoming show in April and then also probably be leaving, although Stardom is trying to convince her to stay because losing one won't be so bad but losing both will be devastating, in particular because they have nobody at their level to elevate to take their places. The promotions' big three of late have been those two and Mayu Iwatani.
Ready yourselves Women of NXT. You'll pine for the salad days when the most you had to fear was Asuka.


Also, this isn't a "devastating" thing for Stardom. It's a blow, but they have the talent to weather the storm. Hopefully Momo Watanabe and Jungle Kyona become bigger players in the promotion, and there are rumors that Stardom signed Arisa Nakajima, who is a major free agent.

Let the Sky-Blue Hyper Era of Stardom begin!

Somewhere, Samoa Joe is screaming about the security. That womens segment was fantastic.

Man, I was so invested in the end of the main event because of how well Shinsuke was selling

Yeah, dude sold like a million bucks. I wouldn't be shocked if Shinsuke came up before Mania, like Zayn did last year.

I am using a free month for the Network, so I checked this out. I thought stuff was fine but one of the weaker Takeovers overall. Nakamura/Roode was good (though the pre-match entrances were the best thing on the show, easily felt like the 2 biggest stars they have along with Asuka). I hope they can develop some guys to carry this brand and get Nakamura and Roode off of here though. They're too old to waste this much time in developmental.

NXT is part developmental and part a third touring brand. Guys like Roode/Joe/Nakamura/Eric Young etc. are there to help get the people that want "an alternative to main brand WWE" interested and showing up to shows.

Those types of guys rotate out when they raid the indies/Japan and bring in new fresh meat to prop up the brand. Finn propped up NXT when Zayn and Owens moved up, Joe and Nakamura did it when Finn moved up, and Roode will do it now that Nakamura and Joe are probably out of here. Whomever is out there to be signed next or already is (like a Roddy Strong, for example) will be the next set of guys who picks up the baton.

It's a pretty effective system for cycling top level guys in and out of NXT to keep it churning as it's own distinct brand while their young ones develop.

All that said, making sure your non-English (as a primary language) speaking talents are comfortable speaking English in long form, if they're going to be solo acts, is pretty important to do. That would explain taking their time with a Nakamura or an Asuka

If Nakamura wasn't pushing his late 30s, then I'd agree that taking time is a good strategy. He doesn't have much more time left as a potential act and draw on the main roster. They need to get their use out of him now when they still can.

I don't think they're taking much more time with Nakamura. He's probably doing a Takeover: Orlando rematch with Roode and then is done in NXT. They've just made a commitment to their foreign talent speaking English now, so you want them to be comfortable before giving them a mic on Raw or SD Live. Nakamura looked pretty good dealing with Roode, so I wouldn't expect him to stay down much longer
