Shawn Michaels Provides Update On Ilja Dragunov & Meiko Satomura

Shawn Michaels has given updates on NXT stars Ilja Dragunov and Meiko Satomura

After WWE shuttered NXT UK, top stars Ilja Dragunov and Meiko Satmoura found themselves in limbo, with the two eventually finding themselves in NXT 2.0.

However, neither Dragunov nor Satomura have been seen since October 2022, although NXT’s Shawn Michaels has given updates on both talents, saying the following on the NXT Vengeance Day media call:

"Much like several months ago, we want them here and love having them here. A lot of it is availability, a lot of it is, as you said, visa issues. A lot of it, also, that is a big career move and life difference. Those are all things we want people to consider before they make that move. Nothing would thrill me more than to have Ilja and Meiko here on a regular basis. They are phenomenal talent. We're thrilled about Gallus being back and Tyler (Bate) being back. As far as who is to come in the future, a lot of that is up to the talent themselves and, also, there are visa issues, but we're waiting on a long-term commitment from some people and we understand that's not an easy decision to make," said Michaels.

WWE have revealed that NXT Europe will take the place of NXT UK, but details of the forthcoming European extension have been few and far between.
