ORLANDO, Fla. — The Io Shirai that the NXT Universe once knew and loved is gone, replaced by a menacing loner who doesn’t want or need anybody’s help.

In her first appearance on NXT TV since sadistically ravaging Candice LeRae with a steel chair inside a cage two weeks ago, Shirai entered Full Sail Live with new music, a new look and, most important of all, a new attitude.

As the boos of the NXT Universe finally settled down, the black-clad Shirai kept her remarks brief, only saying that she doesn’t need “any friends” or “any of you.” For anyone holding out hope that Shirai was going to show remorse toward Candice for an extreme overreaction in the heat of the moment, The Genius of the Sky just dropped a reality check.
