Asuka suffered a pretty stiff kick to the face last week on WWE Raw. Shayna Baszler leveled her and broke the Empress Of Tomorrow’s smile. The Raw Women’s Champion will need some time to heal.
Ringside News has been told that Asuka is considered injured after breaking her tooth thanks to Shayna Baszler’s boot. She will be out of action for, at least, this week, possibly a few weeks.
Asuka could always appear on television in some non wrestling role. The doctor would clear that. They obviously don’t want to risk any further damage to Asuka’s freshly repaired teeth.
WWE Fastlane is coming up on March 21st, and Asuka does not have a challenger for the Raw Women’s Title. She was supposed to wrestle Lacey Evans at Elimination Chamber, but that match was called off due to Evans’ pregnancy.
