We noted before how Asuka was forced to relinquish the NXT Women’s Championship due to an injury, which ended her historic title reigns of 500+ days. During the segment in which she gave up the title, William Regal also revealed that he has started negotiating to move up the former Champion to main roster.
Since then it has been rumored that the former NXT Champion will not return to NXT and she would instead make her Main Roster debut directly after recovering from her injury. Now the possible plans for her debuthaves been revealed too.
James McKenna of Pro wrestling sheet made a tweet recently in which he stated that Asuka will possibly be making her Main Roster debut at the TLC PPV in October. The tweet can be seen below:

If these reports are true then it appears that Asuka will be joining the Raw Brand upon her Main Roster debut because TLC is a Raw PPV and debuting at a PPV could very well mean that she will go after the Raw Women’s Championship as soon as she arrives on the Red Brand.
