Asuka has made quite an impact in NXT since becoming the NXT Women’s Champion and there is no surprise that the General Manager of Raw Kurt Angle would like to have her on his show.
During a recent Press Conference, Kurt was asked which NXT Superstar he would like to have on the Raw roster. Answering to the question Angle took the name of Asuka saying that she’ll make a huge impact upon her Main Roster debut:
“Oh gosh, I really like that Asuka girl. I’m telling you, the girls have really come on strong. Watching her, I know she’s gonna make a huge impact when she comes up, and I really hope we get her on RAW. I really enjoy watching the females become a big part of the WWE.”
When asked how difference WWE is nowadays compared to his last run with the company, Kurt said it’s different now but in a good way:
“It’s different now, but in many good ways. The drug policy, the wellness policy, the way they cater to the athletes – it’s a lot of fun to be back. I wanted to come back – Bill Goldberg said last year, he spoke about him returning to WWE. It wasn’t about him, it was about his kids. I have three little ones that actually never have seen me wrestle. “
Apart from this Kurt Angle also talked about the upcoming WWE 2K18 video game and broke the taboo of the company by taking the name of Chris Benoit during the press conference. You can find out more about it here.
