Asuka, the globe’s most ferocious female warrior, has found a home inside the yellow ropes of NXT.
For more than 10 years, the grappling ace decimated opponents with skull-caving kicks and ligament-tearing submissions in her home country of Japan, under the alias of Kana. After accumulating a trove of championships and cultivating a fearsome reputation, the highly decorated fighting machine was brought to NXT’s acclaimed women’s division in September 2015, in what General Manager William Regal lauded as one of the brand’s most significant signings ever.
Following an impressive victory over “The Total Diva” Dana Brooke in her debut at NXT TakeOver: Respect and a triumph over Emma at NXT TakeOver: London, The Empress of Tomorrow overcame Bayley at NXT TakeOver: Dallas to become the new NXT Women’s Champion – just two days before WrestleMania 32!
With her dominance in NXT firmly established, the other women in the division have been put on notice: Mess with Asuka, and tomorrow might never come.
