Asuka reportedly has no Wrestlemania opponent


Asuka submitted Becky Lynch at The Royal Rumble and retained her Smackdown Women’s Title. However, she has been virtually absent from WWE television ever since. She has no match scheduled for Elimination Chamber.

As the WWE Women’s Tag Team Titles will be defended at Elimination Chamber, it was difficult for WWE to have an opponent for Asuka, so they decided to have her not compete at all.

On Wresting Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer said Asuka has no opponent for Wrestlemania as of yet, since WWE is still trying to decide who her opponent might be. Here is what he said:

“Asuka’s not even on the card [at Elimination Chamber] so whatever she’s doing at WrestleMania and nobody knows that right now. Because I mean, people are pitching for that one. Who knows how that’s gonna end up?

Asuka is the Smackdown Women’s Champion, so of course she should have an opponent for Wrestlemania. Hopefully WWE figures out an opponent for her. However, the RAW Women’s Title clearly has more attention.

    I said it once, and I’ll say it again, any woman who has a chance of putting on a match that could upstage this match has no plans at WrestleMania yet. Expect them to be put in filler matches so that they have no chance of putting on a better show than Ronda and Becky

    Yeah but WWE just cannot accept that she is organically over.
    Remember when Benoit won the Royal Rumble and was gonna go on to face HHH at Mania, but WWE did not think Benoit would sell tickets and interjected HBK into the match as well.

  • Matthew Carter

    This is so simple to remedy- Mandy Rose vs Asuka at Wrestlemania 35.

  • Kristopher Robinson

    Agreed Charlotte has no business in Becky’s match

    As the WWE Women’s Tag Team Titles will be defended
    How the hell is it being “DEFENDED” seeing as nobody even holds it yet?

  • They should have just had her vs Charlotte again and left Becky’s moment to shine alone.
