Asuka Says She Wanted to Change Women’s Wrestling In WWE

Newsweek recently spoke with NXT Women’s Champion Asuka. Here are some highlights from the interview:

Asuka on how she wanted to break records in WWE: “When I decided to sign a contract with WWE, I decided two things. I was determined not only to win, but to leave [breaking] records. That is something I feel like I can do as a return to WWE [for hiring me].”

Thoughts on helping to change the face of women’s wrestling in the promotion: “I wanted to change women’s wrestling in WWE. In wrestling, men and women do the same thing, but sometimes the men look more powerful and more impressive. I am trying my best to fill the gap between men and women.”

Asuka on the adjustment to life in America: “It was my first time living in the U.S., but they were so supportive. The language was a big wall for me…I’m still struggling. Driving is an issue. When I was in Japan, I didn’t have to drive all the time, but here in Florida, you have to drive all the time. But American people are very friendly, cheerful and kind to me. So I’m really thankful to the American people.”

    Those can’t be her exact words since her English is VERY sketchy.

      If you read the article, the words are being translated by a translator.

        When you put quote marks on a statement, that means that was the exact thing said. If this were thru a translator then ditch the quote marks. I don’t want to waste time to read the article, just read the one here. I’m guessing Newweek put those quote marks there which shows how stupid their people are since magazines have proofreaders to not let mis-spellings and other simple stuff get corrected.
