    They could have just had her hand the title over and say she going to Raw and I believe we would be ok with that. I mean it understandable she is awesome in the ring an probably want to keep that undefeated streak as long as they can.

  • Buzzkiller73

    General recovery for a broken collar bone is 12 weeks. So this just adds to the speculation. I truly believe we are being worked and she is good to go.

  • Nicholas Giambattista

    Well also a broken Collar bone was the injury I believe it was take way longer then 6 weeks I think.

  • Buzzkiller73

    Unless I were to see a doctors report or surgery footage like Strowman or others recently I would be very doubtful of a real injury. Fishy is as good a superlative as I can think of to say the least. Either way the Empress of tomorrow is moving on undefeated!!

  • Nicholas Giambattista

    It does seem kind of fishy because I believe they were thinking of how to move her without getting a lose this was the best way.

  • Nicholas Giambattista

    You maybe right but I always felt when Flair went to Smackdown they would bring Asuka to Raw when she lost the NXT title.

  • wwemrpeeps85

    Ummm Raw has stronger women than smackdown though so……….

  • Buzzkiller73

    It’s all a work to keep her undefeated without officially dropping the title to anyone, then she can be moved to the main roster in 6 weeks when her “injury” is healed.

  • Nicholas Giambattista

    She will go to the main roster undefeated when she returns my guest she will go to Raw because they need a strong woman on that show again.

  • Nicholas Giambattista

    I think she going to the main roster to when she recovers. I believe she was going to the main roster very soon anyway. But look at it this way she goes the the main roster undefeated.

  • wwemrpeeps85

    I was going to say this also and yay Brock has wrestlers like twice since he’s had title in 6 months

  • CC

    I thought it was said she would be out for six weeks. So if six weeks is too much without a defence, how come Lesnar can get away for not defending for months?
    They need some kind of consistency or at least come up with some kind of on screen explanation such as “Lesnar signed a contract with Stephanie that says he cannot be stripped of the title”

  • oppa

    In other words, she’s going to debut on the main roster when she returns and this way allows her to do so without losing to anyone.

  • Omar

    And so the reign of the empress comes to a close, on the top.
