Io Shirai is very much interested in a move to Monday Night Raw or Friday Night SmackDown in the future.

As the former NXT Women's Champion prepares for all-out war inside of the WarGames structure this Sunday night, Shirai spoke of a few things she'd still like to achieve in WWE going forward when talking to Justin Barraso of Sports Illustrated recently.

Top of her list seemed to be the concept of move over to either Raw or SmackDown before long, with Shirai admitting:

“Of course, I would be open to a move to SmackDown or Raw. The opportunity would present new goals and encounters different from what I have achieved and experienced in NXT."

Despite confessing the move would open up new encounters and experiences than the ones she'd experienced in NXT, Shirai did also reveal that a rematch with Sasha Banks is at the forefront of her mind... along with another fight with a Horsewoman:

“I would like a rematch with Sasha Banks as soon as possible. I also heard Bayley say she wanted to have a match with me, and I would definitely relish my first confrontation with her. If it is a title match, even better.”

Shirai and Banks' first encounter was one of the better outings of the crowdless 2020 era back at that year's NXT Great American Bash, while Bayley is still yet to meet The Genius of the Sky one-on-one in WWE. In truth, the talented NXT mainstay would produce magic with just about anyone currently plying their trade on the main roster, but it remains to be seen whether she'll get her red or blue chance.
