Asuka took a hard shot in the face from Shayna Baszler on RAW this week. That resulted in the Empress of Tomorrow spitting out a tooth. The RAW Women’s Champion can’t be happy.
According to PW Insider, Asuka was checked out after she got backstage, and at this time there is no real update about her injury status. It was noted on RAW Talk that she broke a tooth.
Asuka was checked by WWE medical after returning backstage. We have not been able to confirm yet whether she was diagnosed with an injury.
Nia Jax had an arm submission on Asuka at the time, and it gave her no ability to block Baszler’s kick. It was a brutal shot, and 100% legit.
Asuka was keeping her mouth covered after she took that shot to the face. She knew something was wrong, and we will have to see if her smile is a little different next week because of it.
