Why Asuka is getting pushed by WWE


Asuka’s inclusion in the triple threat TLC match for the Smackdown Women’s title at TLC was definitely a surprise. Fans were elated over this. However, they did wonder why Asuka got this opportunity in the first place.

According to Fightful,  The Empress of Tomorrow is getting the push because of the reaction she got from fans when Becky Lynch stood in front of her during the segment where Becky Lynch was choosing her Survivor Series replacement.

Vince McMahon was said to be “caught off guard” by the fact that Asuka received a bigger reaction than Charlotte Flair did. Hence, the decision was made to give Asuka a renewed push.

It is uncertain whether this push will last long. But if WWE goes with its initial plans concerning Becky Lynch, things will take an interesting turn, to say the least.

Becky Lynch will be defending her Smackdown Women’s Title against Charlotte Flair and Asuka at WWE TLC on December 16th.

    I’m not saying you have to keep people undefeated, but if you push someone for five minutes and then stop and repeat this for months and years, you end up with Dolph Ziggler. If you have someone win one week and then lose the next to the same individual, you end up with Natayla. WWE can claim that wins and loses don’t matter, but that isn’t so. There’s a reason why Curt Hawkins isn’t the top merch seller. Asuka has been mishandled since Mania. Asuka should have beaten Charlotte. Charlotte should have gone on and beaten Ronda. Ronda should have gone on to beat Asuka. They had joke Carmella beat Asuka not once, but twice. Asuka should have destroyed Carmella in ten seconds.

    You know what I mean.
    She is probably the fodder to stop Lynch or Flair taking the loss.

  • The problem with undefeated streaks though are that they only get people over for a limited time, especially Gillberg. That being said, Asuka actually has talent, so it was always gonna be a question on if Vince liked her on not.

    Vince is an idiot.

    It’s a TLC match.

    But is she getting pushed or is she being inserted into the match to take the pin?

    Gee, who would have thought that keeping someone undefeated and looking strong for a long time would get someone over? Who would have guessed? Bischoff; Bischoff did. That’s why Goldberg was over like rover back in the 90’s and why Vince stole the undefeated gimmick and used it on Lesnar and why Lesnar got over the way he did.
