Welcome home. There is something very special about a return in wrestling. A wrestler might have been gone for a long time before getting to show up again without much warning. They might have been gone for all kinds of reasons, but an injury is one of the most common. That was the case again this week and now another WWE star is back in action.
Asuka made her surprise return to WWE television this week on Monday Night Raw. Becky Lynch was in the ring and promising to get her Raw Women’s Title back, which means no one will be able to stop her. This brought out Asuka, to say that she would stop Lynch. No match was officially announced. Asuka had been out of action since last July with an arm injury.
Opinion: This is great to see as it has been a long time since Asuka has been around. She is instantly one of the major players in the women’s division and could be slotted into any spot WWE needs her to take. Starting off with Lynch is a great way to go and the match itself could be a heck of a showcase for both. It’s nice to see her back though, and maybe this time WWE can treat her as a bigger deal.
What do you think of Asuka’s return? Who do you want to see her face? Let us know in the comments below.
