Asuka won a battle royal on SmackDown Live this week and then she was inserted into the big TLC match for the SmackDown Women’s Title on December 16th. But even though people are happy for Asuka, they still might wonder why she’s even in the match.
Bryan Alvarez said on Wrestling Observer Radio that one of the reasons why Asuka is in this match very well could be because Becky Lynch is freshly cleared from a pretty bad concussion, therefore they might need someone else to do some work so Lynch might be able to take a little load off of herself.
“Who knows what kind of condition Becky is in and they’re putting her in a match with tables, ladders, and chairs coming off of a concussion. I mean it’s very possible that the reason Asuka’s even in the match is so that her and Charlotte can carry the load here and not put Becky at risk.”
WWE wants to keep Lynch healthy and they really need to. But if you put The Man in a situation like TLC and expect her not to bring it, then you’re asking for trouble too. If I were a betting man Becky, Charlotte, and Asuka are going to tear it down at TLC.
