She did it again.
The Empress has taken June to become armdragsandgladrags’ Woman of the Month for the second consecutive month.
What set Asuka out above her peers in June?
Her battles with Nikki Cross.
While Nikki Cross was very much a contender herself, having Asuka’s number at every interaction, she’s never been able to topple The Empress. From San Antonio, to Chicago, to Full Sail to their Last Woman Standing Match, Asuka has stood tall, keeping her deathgrip on the NXT Women’s Championship.
Also to consider; Asuka is creating history with every match she has. Her undefeated streak keeps going as does her record-setting reign with the NXT Women’s Title. The reign is the third-longest held by any woman in WWE; behind Rockin’ Robin’s 502-day reign and Moolah’s 10,170 day-reign with the WWE Women’s Championship.
Asuka recently passed Trish Stratus’ 448-day reign, and she is fast approaching Rockin’ Robin’s reign at 502.
Asuka is the longest reigning champion in WWE by 302 days; the second-longest reigning champs are NXT Champion Bobby Roode and NXT Tag Team Champions The Authors of Pain, who won their respective gold in San Antonio. The main roster is trailing behind Asuka, with Neville’s Cruiserweight Title win at this years Royal Rumble being the closest thing.
Her signing was a big deal, her undefeated streak continues to this day. She has claimed gold and has now even started a streak on a fan’s website, does her dominance know no bounds!?
In all seriousness, can anyone stop the Empress?
