The Reason Only 1 WWE Star Will Appear On New Promotion’s Show

WWE’s relationship with Marigold looks set to run for a long time.

On June 11th it was announced IYO SKY would face Utami Hayashishita at Marigold’s Summer Destiny on July 13th. The promotion had been looking to land both IYO SKY and Kairi Sane, but it seems they’ll only have the services of the former, at least for now.

The announcement came shortly after company President Rossy Ogawa said he was pushed by Triple H to leave Stardom and create a new company. Ogawa said he was beginning to struggle with Stardom and was unable to “show his full potential” before deciding to step out on his own.

Summer Destiny is due to take place at Ryogoku Kokugikan in Tokyo, Japan.

Marigold Looking To Get WWE Talent

Speaking on Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer offered more insight into the relationship between Marigold and WWE. Meltzer suggested the upstart promotion is planning to hold four big events per year, and they’ll be looking to the sports entertainment giant for stars to add to the card.

“They promised to help, and so that’s the July 13th Summerhall show. She’s facing Utami Hayashishita on the same show that Giulia and Sareee are scheduled as the main event. The last I heard, Giulia was saying she was going to do this to match. So you know, I mean, she did have surgery. It’s going to be a close call. But right now, that’s the double-main event. And it’s only IYO SKY.

I had heard earlier in the week that there might be other people coming from WWE to the show, but as far as the Marigold people know, it is IYO, you know, coming from WWE on this first show.

So the idea is they’re going to be doing I think that the basic battle plan for Marigold is four big shows a year. You know, like at arenas like Sumo Hall, and those are the shows that they would like to get WWE talent, you know, Kairi Sane because the ones that Rossy gets along with, I mean, Asuka, no, Asuka hates Rossy, so she’ll never go there. But just get talent, women’s talent from WWE on the big shows.”

Giulia is currently out of action after suffering a broken wrist during Marigold’s debut show in May. The star is set to move to WWE in the coming months.
