Asuka won a battle royal last week on SmackDown Live to earn a spot in a TLC match against Becky Lynch and Charlotte Flair. Asuka’s entry into the situation is certainly interesting, but could she be more than just another person in the match to freshen up Lynch and Flair’s feud?
Bryan Alvarez discussed on Wrestling Observer Live the plausible possibility of Asuka actually winning the SmackDown Women’s Title at TLC. If WWE’s plans for WrestleMania remain the same, taking the title off of Lynch could very well be in the cards.
“It makes me wonder if maybe the reason she’s in there is to win because of course, you know how they do things. Nobody’s gonna expect it. Everybody’s expecting either Becky Lynch or Charlotte to walk out with the title but — hey, they could very easily do the deal where they’re both in the Royal Rumble, they’re both trying to win the Rumble to get their hands on Ronda Rousey and if they’re both going to be in the Rumble then somebody else should be the champion. So there’s a very good chance Asuka will walk out as champion. I guess we’ll find out.”
You never know what they could be planning, but Ronda Rousey is definitely going to be in either Becky Lynch or Charlotte Flair’s plans, or possibly both. If this is WWE’s plan then placing the SmackDown Women’s Title to Asuka almost by default would be a logical choice. We’ll have to find out, but December 16th might be a very exciting night for fans of The Empress Of Tomorrow.
