#4 Was winning the Women’s Tag Team Championship at WWE TLC in Asuka’s best interests?
Carrying on from the previous question, another thing that needs to be addressed is if Asuka needed to win the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championship at TLC. No Superstar wants to let go of an opportunity of winning a title, but was it in her best interest to win the title at this point?
WWE has been struggling to build a top rivalry for Asuka. The Empress last defended her title against Lana almost a month ago, and prior to that in September against Zelina Vega.
Instead of booking Asuka to win the title with Charlotte Flair, couldn’t the company have given Lana her spot instead? We could have watched Shayna Baszler injure Asuka before TLC instead of Nia Jax injuring Lana on RAW.
This would have allowed Flair to return and win the Women’s Tag Team Championships from Baszler and Jax alongside Lana. It would have also given Asuka her next challenger in the form of Baszler on the road to the Royal Rumble.
