3 Interesting observations from WWE RAW (January 6, 2020)
#2: Asuka's RAW booking was questionable
Becky Lynch has lost to 'The Empress of Tomorrow' several times in the past. However, her on-screen presence is still more dominating than that of Asuka's. Although their history is a huge factor going into the RAW Women's Championship Match, Asuka looked somewhat weak as a character last night. Asuka's over-the-top approach towards rambling in front of Becky Lynch only to be knocked out by a single jab definitely didn't make her look strong as the Royal Rumble looms.
On the other hand, it would have been better if Asuka's on-screen portrayal was as strong as her track record against Becky Lynch in the ring. This would have made defeating Asuka a seemingly impossible task for Lynch heading into the Royal Rumble.
Lynch's dominance only shows us that 'The Man' is quite likely to hold on to her prestigious title, at least until WrestleMania 36.
