The world of professional wrestling is no stranger to the toll it takes on its athletes, who often endure injuries while striving to deliver top-notch entertainment for their fans. The latest addition to this list of resilient performers is the dynamic WWE SmackDown star, Asuka, who has recently been confirmed to have suffered a knee injury during last week’s episode of SmackDown.

Concerns arose among fans when Asuka was noticeably absent from WWE’s house shows over the weekend, further compounded by observations of her limping during the conclusion of SmackDown last week. Asuka had been an active participant in WWE’s live event circuits, with her most recent match occurring on March 10th. However, she was taken off WWE live events following the injury scare.

According to PWInsider, it has been confirmed that Asuka sustained a knee injury during the March 15th edition of Friday Night SmackDown. She was subsequently pulled from the weekend live events to undergo medical evaluation.

“WWE Women’s Tag Team Champion Asuka hurt her knee during this past Friday’s WWE Smackdown broadcast, has confirmed with multiple sources. We are told Asuka was pulled from the weekend live events out of caution and so that medical tests could be done to confirm whether it was something Asuka could work through or whether she had a larger injury.”


Asuka’s injury comes at an unfortunate time, with WrestleMania 40 just around the corner. Wrestling enthusiasts are left hoping for the best as they await further updates on Asuka’s condition. Whether she can manage to work through the injury or if it proves to be more serious remains to be seen.

As the wrestling community holds its breath, sending thoughts of strength and recovery to Asuka, her resilience and determination serve as a reminder of the sacrifices made by athletes in pursuit of their craft.
