Asuka tends to her leg.

In one of the bigger shocks from Wrestlemania 34, nigh-unstoppable Asuka was given her first defeat at the hands of Charlotte Flair.

While it was obvious Asuka would eventually be beaten--no one retires undefeated in pro wrestling--no one expected her first loss to be so soon after joining the main roster.

While it is a setback for Asuka to lose on the grandest stage of them all, she put on a stellar performance and made a mark as not only the best women's match on the card but quite possibly the best match of Wrestlemania weekend.

So where does Asuka go from here? Here are five things she must do to get back on top of the women's division.

The first thing Asuka must do is accept her loss and move on from it.

Asuka has tasted defeat before in Japan and didn't let that slow her down. With her near two years of brutal dominance under her belt, Asuka has nothing to be ashamed of and plenty of which she can be proud.

One loss doesn't mean the death knell for her career. Sometimes you win, and sometimes you learn.
