Asuka became RAW Women’s Champion when Becky Lynch could no longer defend the title. The Man revealed that she was about to become The Mom, and then she took a hiatus to prepare for Baby Roux.
The Empress of Tomorrow is out of action as she was last spotted in an arm brace. We’ll have to see when her return comes around, but Becky Lynch is back and able to tell the story.
During a press conference in the UK, GiveMeSport asked Becky Lynch about relinquishing her title due to pregnancy. She then revealed that Asuka knew about the situation ahead of time, something WWE didn’t want her to know. The Man still told Asuka, because she likes her.
I told her just before, it was a great reaction. She wasn’t supposed to know. I wasn’t supposed to tell her, but I really like Asuka so…
Asuka was able to pull off a great reaction when she became RAW Women’s Champion. It seemed organic, but that just shows how great of an entertainer Asuka really is.
Becky Lynch made her return to WWE and immediately became SmackDown Women’s Champion once again. We’ll have to see what’s in the future for Big Time Becks. She might even get to wrestle Asuka for real if the WWE Draft places them on the same brands in October.
