Paige returned to RAW as the manager for Kabuki Warriors on this week’s RAW, but that did not last long. Asuka spit green mist in Paige’s face and signified that they no longer needing her services. This was a big heel move on their part.
On Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer talked about this angle. Meltzer thinks it is just a way to get them heel heat as they have consistently been cheered at house shows, even in Australia when they were facing the local IIconics. So something was needed to turn them heel, even though Meltzer considers Kairi Sane as one of the best suited to be a babyface in the entire company.
The Kabuki Warriors are the WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions and will be facing off against Dakota Kai and Tegan Nox on NXT.
