Asuka was supposed to take part in the Queen of The Ring tournament on RAW this week, but that didn’t happen as it was announced she was injured. With that said, her health status has now been revealed.

Damage CTRL had news to share on Monday Night RAW after IYO Sky’s victory over Natalya in the first round of the Queen of the Ring tournament. Dakota Kai took center stage to announce that their fellow faction member Asuka had sustained an undisclosed injury at WWE Backlash France. As a result, Kai stepped in to replace Asuka in the other Queen of the Ring first-round match later that night.

According to a report by Fightful’s Corey Brennan, it was reported that Asuka had suffered a legitimate injury. It was further added that she was also backstage at RAW this week.

”Asuka’s injury is legitimate. Corey Brennan of Fightful heard that she was at the show.”


Earlier this year, Asuka had an injury scare but she wasn’t actually injured, so it’s very unfortunate that The Empress of Tomorrow has to deal with a legitimate injury this time around. We’ll have to wait and see when Asuka will make her return to in-ring action.
