Since her return to WWE at this year’s Royal Rumble, Asuka has undergone a transformation, adopting a character and presentation reminiscent of her pre-WWE days as Kana in Japan. This welcomed change has breathed new life into her persona, which had remained relatively unchanged throughout her tenure in WWE.
One of the most noticeable aspects of Asuka’s revamped character is her striking makeup, which now leans heavily into the creepy and eerie side that she was known for in Japan. WWE recently shared a TikTok video on their official account, offering fans a behind-the-scenes look at the process behind Asuka’s impressive makeup for her appearances on WWE TV.
The video showcases the intricate steps involved in creating Asuka’s unique look, giving viewers a glimpse into the creative process and the attention to detail that goes into her presentation. Fans can check out the full TikTok video for a closer look at Asuka’s stunning transformation.
Despite recently being drafted to SmackDown, Asuka is set to face Bianca Belair for the RAW Women’s Championship at WWE Night of Champions on May 27. This highly anticipated match will mark their first encounter since Belair’s victory over Asuka at WrestleMania 39. Following Asuka’s poison mist attack on Belair during the May 12 episode of SmackDown, it appears that Asuka will be embracing a heel role for their upcoming showdown.
