The stars have aligned for the Empress of Tomorrow to win the first ever Women's Royal Rumble at this month's Pay-Per-View event in Philadelphia, PA! She has the passion and desire to dominate her way to the top of the WWE's women's division. After this past week's episode of WWE RAW, Asuka defeated RAW's Women's Champion, Alexa Bliss.

The Empress of Tomorrow has set her eyes on the top prize and will stop at nothing to earn and capture her first ever RAW Women's Title and she proved exactly that on the first RAW of the year!

Dominance and passion

Asuka is definitely something the WWE Universe has not experienced until now. She has bulldozed through each and every opponent RAW GM Kurt Angle put's against her. The Empress made her main roster debut back at the TLC Pay-Per-View against Emma.

A great debut match and dominance pushed Asuka even higher in the eyes of the WWE Universe. It's hard to win over the WWE Universe but Asuka has done just that since the first day she stepped foot in a WWE ring. She has only been on the RAW roster for a few months but she has truly proved herself week in and week out.

She has only been in the WWE for awhile but she was a very dominant presence in Japan, making her debut in 2004 going by the ring-name Kana. The following is a video of Asuka wrestling as Kana in Japan, before the WWE.

On a winning streak!

It is safe to say that Asuka has had her share of wins in the WWE. She was undefeated in NXT, but had to relinquish the NXT Women's title to move on to the main roster where she has continued that streak to perfection.

Not only would she be making history by winning the first ever Women's Royal Rumble but she would add another accolade to her already excellent resume.

I don't see the Empress of Tomorrow running off the tracks anytime soon. After winning the Rumble, she should move on to capture the RAW Women's Championship in 2018 at Wrestlemania 34 in New Orleans.

We have seen Asuka run through the competition on RAW in recent months, and that is the perseverance needed to not only be the champion, but to keep her winning streak alive and well.

Sky is the limit!

We all know why the WWE recruited Asuka! She inherits everything needed to be successful in this business and has acquired the skills needed to be the most dominant female in recent years. The future is bright and is only going to get brighter as time goes by and the year pushes forward.

The first ever Women's Royal Rumble is going to be a spectacle. We all are looking forward to watching history in the making and seeing the winner crowned, whoever that may be!
