WWE has a lot of plans for their future, especially after they rest things a bit after the 2023 WWE Draft. It seems that might call for a surprising heel turn for a former champion.

Click here of a leaked list of WWE’s current planned roster depth chart on SmackDown after the 2023 WWE Draft.

PW Insider reports that there are internal reports to turn Asuka heel. She is currently a babyface, and enjoying that fresh look on her character. At this time, it is unclear whether that will actually go down as planned.

There has been a pitch to turn Asuka heel on the Smackdown brand, PWInsiderElite.com has learned.  There was talk of her vs. Bianca Belair for Night of Champions a few weeks ago.


We will have to see if Asuka turns heel. This could certainly shake up the WWE SmackDown roster in a big way, because she is a competitor who can do a lot of damage as a heel.

Asuka has portrayed a heel and babyface in WWE. The fact that she can play both roles should also speak to her versatility as a performer. No matter how Triple H uses her, Asuka has all the tools she needs to make a lot of noise.

What’s your take on this situation with Asuka possibly turning heel? Is it the right call? Sound off in the comments!
