From Osaka, Japan……Asukaaaaa!
The Empress of tomorrow took May.
Here’s what she accomplished this month:
-Became the longest reigning current champion in WWE.
-Overtook Goldberg’s legendary 173-0 undefeated streak, to cement herself in the history of the biggest wrestling company in the world.
-Became the longest reigning Women’s Champion WWE has had in 12 years.
-Pinned Ruby Riot and Nikki Cross to retain her NXT Women’s Championship at TakeOver: Chicago.
Asuka is having one hell of a run in NXT, and I’m excited to see what happens next. While many of her detractors say that she’s too dominant from a psychology/storyline perspective, I genuinely love seeing her kick the shit out of people.
That, coupled with talk that she may be the first ever ‘Pail Heyman Girl’ keeps her going from strength to strength.
All hail The Empress!
