It would be a welcome return. There are all kinds of wrestlers on the WWE roster and some of them are quite popular. One of the best things about having such a talented group of wrestlers is being able to see who shows up on any given week. It can be fascinating to see what you get, especially if one of them is a nice surprise. We might be seeing another one of them soon.
Asuka has not wrestled on WWE television since Money in the Bank 2021 back in July. Since then, she had been seen in a photo with her arm in a metal brace, suggesting that she was on the injured list. According to Andrew Zarian of the Mat Men Wrestling Podcast, Asuka could be back in WWE at any time as she should be cleared to return soon. There is no specific date given on when she will be back.
Asuka debuted in NXT in 2015 and won the NXT Title in April 2016, holding the title for over a year and never being defeated for it. She would vacate the championship due to an injury after a 522 day reign before moving up to the main roster. Asuka would go on to win the 2018 Women’s Royal Rumble and three Women’s Title between Monday Night Raw and SmackDown.
Opinion: This could be great news for WWE, as Asuka is one of the most established names in WWE’s women’s division. She has been a success on the main roster and can have a great match with just about anyone. The women’s division needs some fresh blood at the moment and Asuka could be one of the biggest stars as soon as she returns, whenever that may be.
What do you think of Asuka? Who do you want to see her face? Let us know in the comments below.
