Legendary Japanese performer and formidable mat wizard, Asuka, makes her main roster debut this weekend at WWE TLC.

The former NXT Champion comes in with incredible hype, and rightfully so, given her repertoire the world over.

"The Empress of Tomorrow" has been touted by many as the next Women’s Champion on the WWE’s Monday night flagship show, and irrespective of the red brand’s reigning champ, Alexa Bliss being quite dominant in her own right, Asuka comes in guns blazing to dethrone the Goddess of WWE.

Nevertheless, no one is unconquerable and Asuka is indeed human. Today we look at the biggest threats on RAW who can give the unyielding Empress a run for her money.


#3 Sasha Banks

"The Legit Boss" has held the RAW Women’s Championship not once, but four times. Sasha Banks has been relegated to the mid-card as of late, but remains one of the key players in the Women’s Division nonetheless.

Banks faces Alicia Fox at TLC this weekend, and with Asuka competing opposite Emma on the same card, a potential face-off between "The Empress" and "The Boss" may be on the cards at the event. Add to that the fact that Sasha is reportedly turning heel in the weeks to come, the WWE seems to have big things in store for the four-time champ.

Banks is excellent on the mic, and highly technical in the wrestling department as well, making her the complete package. Although fans may expect Asuka to rip through everyone in the red brand’s Women’s Division, against Sasha, the Japanese Superstar is guaranteed to face her stiffest challenge thus far in the WWE.
