Meiko Satomura competed in the second Mae Young Classic tournament last Summer and made it to the semifinals before being eliminated by the current NXT U.K. Women's Champion Toni Storm. In November, Meiko stated during an interview with Yahoo! Japan that she was planning on returning to WWE in 2019. Here's the direct quote from the aforementioned interview with Satomura:
The level is completely different, I want to be there, I feel I can not stay in Japan forever. When the opportunity arises, of course, I will cross the ocean to fight there next year.” She continued, “I want to have a challenge to challenge the new generation. If I win here it will be the perfect ending of a great year. After that I will give momentum to the WWE re-entry in 2019, continue fighting in Japan and aim for the top of the world."
