Many fans and several WWE superstars have responded to the incident and sent their well-wishes to Asuka. Some of the WWE superstars who responded are Shinsuke Nakamura, Lana, and Killian Dain.
We have no doubt that the incident will have an impact on Asuka and we wish her all the best while she copes with what happened. Of course, the timing for her could not be worse, as she is scheduled to appear in the Royal Rumble this Sunday.
Will Asuka Beat Becky Lynch At The Royal Rumble This Sunday?
As mentioned earlier, the shooting incident couldn’t have come at a worse time for the Empress of Tomorrow. After all, she is set to face Becky Lynch at the Royal Rumble with the Raw Women’s Championship on the line!
After being out of the limelight as a wrestler for some time, things are finally looking up for the Empress. In the meantime, while she had very little to do, she started her own channel on YouTube, but now she has a big opportunity.
Many fans believe that The Empress of Tomorrow could be the one to dethrone the WWE Raw Women’s Champion. Their feud goes all the way back to 2018. In the past, Asuka ruled as the longest reigning NXT women’s champion. Now, the WWE is trying to restore that status.
Becky has struggled against Asuka since their feud got reinstated this year. The Empress also interfered in Becky’s TLC match and has been a thorn in her side ever since.
While I don’t really know where that would leave the Kabuki Warriors as a tag team, it would be interesting to see what Asuka will do as the Raw Women’s Champion and one half of the Women’s Tag Team Champions.
