During a live event this past monday, SmackDown Women’s Champion Asuka was hurt during a match with Mandy Rose, resulting in the match being prematurely halted.
Asuka was dropped on her head resulting in the referee throwing up the ‘X’ injury signal. Trainers and Finlay attended to the former NXT star before she walked off to the back of her own volition.
It’s worth noting that reports say the incident was a freak accident rather than any fault of Mandy Rose’ with some worrying a ‘botched’ spot could derail the former Tough Enough star’s recent push.

Asuka reassured her fans via Twitter following the incident that she is doing well:
I’m sorry for worrying you.
Hit my back but That’s fine 🤡
