This is only a rumor and we only have preliminary information, so take it for what its worth. According to a fan report, Smackdown Live Women’s Champion Asuka was seriously injured at a Live Event tonight in White Plains, New York.
During a match with Mandy Rose, Asuka was hit with a move that caused serious damage to the shoulder and neck areas. Apparently the match was a called a no contest, the referee through up the “X” symbol and WWE producers came sprinting out to check on the situation.
You can see the tweet, along with the accompanying video below:
