Kairi Sane makes main roster debut and forms tag team with Asuka

As seen on the Superstar Shake-up edition of SmackDown LIVE, Paige brought out the tag team that she promised to introduce last week. In a segment involving a plethora of WWE’s female Superstars, Paige introduced Asuka and the debuting Kairi Sane to the WWE Universe.

Sane and Asuka will be a team managed by Paige moving forward and will seemingly challenge for the WWE Women’s Tag Team Titles.

What followed this segment was an 8-Woman tag team match with Ember Moon, Bayley, Asuka and Kairi Sane on one side and Mandy Rose, Sonya Deville and the IICONICS on the other.

    Asuka is a single wrestler not tag team. If they have Page be her manger an she wrestle we can go for that.

    Agreed. This move makes no sense to me.

    Why? You already had a perfect team with Io and Kairi, so why only bring one up and then team her with someone who should be a singles competitor?
    Is this really how little they value Asuka? A few weeks ago she was the womens champion, and now this.

    It’s almost like WWE think one female Japanese wrestler is interchangeable with any other.
