5 ways WWE could book Asuka ahead of The Royal Rumble
The women of WWE are set to make history next month as part of the first ever Women's Royal Rumble match but it seems that over the next four weeks there could be a number of major changes in the women's division in order for the storylines heading into WrestleMania to make sense.
It is thought that the winner of the Women's Rumble match will go on to face either the Raw or SmackDown Women's Champion depending on which brand the woman is part of who wins the historic match.
The fact that only Asuka, Naomi, Ruby Riott and Natalya have declared their involvement in the match so far, means that WWE could have some bigger plans for the women in the coming weeks.
#5 Asuka and Absolution
Asuka is still undefeated in WWE ever since she made her debut with many fans hoping that there could be a huge storyline leading up to the end of her undefeated streak. Absolution has set their sights on Asuka over the past few weeks and they could be the key to making sure Asuka is eliminated from The Rumble so that it actually makes sense.
Since Asuka was brought up to the main roster she hasn't faced anyone other than Dana Brooke, Emma and Alicia Fox who are all technically seen as jobbers. Paige has been protected since her return last month as well, which means that she would be the perfect person to eliminate Asuka from The Rumble if Sonya Deville and Mandy Rose help and Asuka is the victim of the numbers game.
WWE just have to plant the seeds of Absolution and Asuka over the next few weeks so that the pay off inside The Rumble actually makes sense.
