WWE Women's Champion Asuka currently has two top names coming after her title on SmackDown, but fellow superstar Zelina Vega could be waiting for the perfect opportunity to strike.
Asuka defeated Bianca Belair at Night of Champions to capture the erstwhile RAW Women's Championship. The EST's title reign lasted for 420 days, but it finally came to an end at the premium live event in Saudi Arabia. This past Friday on SmackDown, WWE official Adam Pearce promised Belair a rematch against The Empress of Tomorrow if she didn't ruin her title presentation.
Belair obliged, but Charlotte Flair made her return and vowed to take Asuka's title. Adam Pearce then gave Flair a future title shot, and Bianca took to social media to note how ridiculous that was. However, if Asuka can get past Charlotte and Belair, the 32-year-old superstar could be eyeing another title match.
Zelina Vega qualified for Money in the Bank ladder match by defeating Lacey Evans on the June 2 episode of SmackDown. She had the biggest match of her career at Backlash against Rhea Ripley for the SmackDown Women's Championship but came up short. However, she could use the motivation from her loss to Ripley to win the title from Asuka.
