In a recent interview with Sports Illustrated, Io Shirai discussed the scary bump she took at NXT Halloween Havoc, a potential WWE main roster-call-up, and much more. Here are some of the highlights:

Io Shirai on the scary bump she took at NXT Halloween Havoc: “Without thinking about anything, my body was taking bumps on its own and that is why I am a professional. Bumps on ladders are painful, of course, but any bump can be painful whether it is off a ladder or in the center of the ring. It is our job to train our body to take those bumps so we do not get injured and that is why it is important to not try what we do at home.”

On NXT 2.0 and working with Shawn Michaels: “Since NXT 2.0 debuted, the number of new stars has increased, which I have found very fun and exciting. Regarding Shawn, I do still work with and get advice from him, which is always extremely helpful.”

On a potential WWE main roster-call-up and wanting a rematch with Sasha Banks: “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. 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.”
