Details Of WWE Officials Meeting With Japanese Wrestling Promotions Revealed

Talks could be significant...

Close to a month ago, it was revealed that during WWE's brief tour of Japan at the end of June,Triple H took a meeting with Sareee, the 23-year-old holder of both the World Woman Pro Wrestling Diana’s World and Sendai Girls World titles.

According to Dave Meltzer in this week's Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Paul Levesque's time spent in Japan included other potentially-significant meetings aside from that. One such meeting took place with officials from the Dragon Gate promotion. Meltzer also notes that WWE officials also met with representatives from the Stardom promotion.

While Japan is a major target of WWE's, Meltzer also notes that the company is looking hard at Australia, as, "they have been actively recruiting all the top wrestlers there."

One Australian-born wrestler named in Meltzer's report is, as one might expect, Robbie Eagles, who recently shone in matches with Will Ospreay, Bandido, and others as part of this year's NJPW Best of the Super Juniors tournament. However, Meltzer adds that Eagles is under a New Japan deal, so he probably wouldn't be WWE-bound any time soon.
