Dave Meltzer indicated in the latest edition of Wrestling Observer Newsletter that WWE may be building a match between Asuka and Ronda Rousey.
According to Meltzer, Asuka has recently changed her finisher and started using armbar, which might be an indication that the company has this match planned. Here is what he wrote:
“Given Asuka switching from the chicken wing Asuka lock to the armbar, and Rousey as the legit armbar master, and then giving Asuka the shooter push and protecting her so much, that would seem to be a natural matchup down the line”
It’s worth mentioning here that some recent reports state that Ronda is very close to making a full transaction from MMA to WWE and she is expected to sign a contract with the Biggest Wrestling Company in the world very soon.
So while nothing is confirmed at this point, it wouldn’t be a surprise if these two meet up somewhere down the line considering the fact that Asuka appears to be a natural opponent for the UFC Star.
