Reason WWE Booked Emma As Asuka’s Opponent for Debut Match

As seen on Monday’s episode of RAW, Emma won a 5-Way Elimination Match to earn the opportunity to face Askua in her debut match at the upcoming WWE TLC event.

Dave Meltzer reported in the latest issue of The Wrestling Observer Newsletter that Asuka vs. Emma was always the plan for Asuka’s debut match due to the fact that the two worked together and had a high-quality match at NXT Takeover: London back on December 16th, 2015.

While many felt Sasha Banks or Bayley would be the best opponent for Asuka, the feeling is those matches should have a build. Basically, Emma was placed in her position just to make Asuka look strong.

    Everyone already knew this long before the 5 way.

  • Philip Manley

    Asuka’s going to enter the ring with a shovel with Emma’s name inscribed on it.

  • ScottyPNR

    They should have her run the gauntlet Emma, nia, foxy baby, Alexa and 3 or 4 others that might be on raw. 6 or 7 squash matches. Kurt Angle comes out and says the final match is for the raw women’s title. Depending on her health. Asuka keeps it for 2 years. Goes to SD with it. Beats Nattie. Carmella cashes in only to lose.

    • NoGoodMickey

      Lmfao! She just murders everyone! Quash match after quash match. Burying bitches by day, also burying bitches at night!

      • ScottyPNR

        Yup. It was meant to be a joke. She’s like 200-0 or some shit never lost her title. Held it over 400 days. There’s no point for her to lose. Knowing wwe they have some scrub beat her.
