It looks like plans have totally changed for the Lacey Evans vs. Asuka match. This story doesn’t have a happy ending either. Asuka just yesterday mocked WWE for false advertising the match after it was canceled.
The original match that was set to take place was Asuka vs. Lacey Evans. After the match was billed and pushed, news came in that Lacey Evans was pregnant by Ric Flair. Of course, while Ric Flair is not the father, Lacey is pregnant in reality.
WWE dragged their feet about announcing a replacement for the Asuka vs Evans event, but WWE creative could not come up with a new opponent, so Asuka did not get to have a match.
As stated above, the match between Asuka was not booked by WWE creative. Asuka is fine and has no injury. We are eager to see how WWE turns this around as Asuka vs Evans was a very hyped up match that fans were looking forward to.
