There is a rumor floating around on social media & Sportskeeda that claims that Asuka walked out of Tuesday’s SmackDown Live this week after a heated meeting with WWE officials and has stopped returning their calls since the Japanese star was reportedly unhappy with her current position in the company.
We can confirm that these reports are completely false. Rumors claim that these reports originated from Mike Johson on PWInsider Elite, however that’s not the case. PWInsider has not released an audio since Tuesday morning, which means there is no way they had reported it. We are only addressing this rumor because I’ve had several contact me asking about the authenticity of these claims.
It’s also worth mentioning that no other reliable source has picked up on these claims. Had Asuka walked out on SmackDown, it would be one of the biggest stories of the year and everyone backstage would be talking about it.
