4 possible reasons why Vince McMahon tricked Asuka before WrestleMania 35
Smackdown Live had some unforeseen surprises this week which was the second last episode of the blue brand before the Show of Shows. Without a shadow of a doubt, the appalling moment of this week was when Charlotte Flair grabbed the Smackdown Women's Title after beating Asuka. It certainly came as a big shock to a majority of the fans.
Asuka won the Smackdown Women's Title at TLC last year, and it was her first main roster belt. The Empress of Tomorrow eventually defended the belt at Royal Rumble where she defeated Becky Lynch. In all honesty, Asuka's title run became bland following Royal Rumble as she struggled to find a credible opponent.
Asuka's number one contender was supposed to be decided on Smackdown Live this week in a women's fatal-4 way match. However, the Smackdown Women's Championship match between Charlotte and Asuka replaced the fatal-4 way match as the Queen overpowered Asuka.
It is still ambiguous why Asuka lost the belt just eleven days before the Grandest Stage of Them All. Here we discuss four possible reasons why Vince Mahon's billion dollar company took the title away from Asuka before WrestleMania 35.
#4 To provide a rematch of WrestleMania 34
Though we got a rematch of WrestleMania 34 on Smackdown Live this week where the result was same, the two women have a gigantic possibility to headline WrestleMania 35. Asuka might be set to defeat Charlotte Flair after losing two bouts to the Queen. It could be a perfect redemption if Asuka reclaims the Smackdown Women's Title at the Grandest Stage of Them All.
Asuka lost the Smackdown Women's Title after 100 days. It will be interesting to see if she gets a rematch on Smackdown Live next week. Considering we are just ten days away from the Showcase of Immortals, Asuka might get her rematch at Metlife Stadium next month.
She received an unfair treatment this week, but Vince McMahon could have a bigger plan for the Empress of Tomorrow at WrestleMania 35. Asuka could lift her fallen stature in WWE if she manages to pin the current Smackdown Women's Champion in New Jersey.
