Nakano, who was down to 130lbs. last year when she married kickboxer Daisuke Aoki, has been a professional golfer since leaving wrestling. She recently appeared at a show in Japan and said she would play the Nakano character one last time on January 8th but would not wrestle because of a 1997 operation on her knees. She is currently eating heavy to get her weight up and weight in at 187 lbs at last word. It’s expected that many of the women’s stars from the 90′s will be appearing on the show. Former WWF women’s wrestler Aja Kong, who teamed with and feuded with Nakano, has already been confirmed for the show.
