WWE personnel attend NJPW event

By Jason Powell, ProWrestling.net Editor (@prowrestlingnet)

WWE/NXT performers Mauro Ranallo, Kairi Sane, and Io Shirai attended the New Japan Pro Wrestling event in Long Beach, California on Sunday.

Powell’s POV: NXT voice Ranallo was in the front row with MMA fighter Frank Shamrock, who noted that he was attending his first pro wrestling event. There was a time not all that long ago when WWE personnel attending a rival promotion’s show and being shown on camera would have been frowned upon by the company. For instance, Robbie McAllister of The Highlanders was shown during a TNA Impact broadcast in 2008 and was contacted by someone from WWE and was ordered to leave the event.
