The Cauliflower Alley Club would like to congratulate Io Shirai on capturing the NXT Women’s championship in a 3 Way competition against then champion Charlotte Flair and former champ Rea Ripley. To celebrate with her, here is a look back at her from a little over 4 years ago during out 46th anniversary celebration. Know that we would continue to love to have you with us during our subsequent annual reunions.

Thank you, Io! Looking forward to you running rampant through the NXT Women’s Division before your ultimate goal of reaching for the stars in the WWE Main Roster! Best wishes from the Cauliflower Alley Club and the Gorilla Position!
