This week's edition of Monday Night RAW featured a 'Champions Showcase' match between the WWE Women's Tag Team Champions The Kabuki Warriors and the team of RAW Women's Champion Becky Lynch and SmackDown Women's Champion Charlotte Flair. Kairi Sane pinned the RAW Women's Champion with a roll-up, courtesy of Asuka spitting green mist into Lynch's face.
As expected, Lynch was furious with the outcome of the match and took to Twitter to challenge Asuka. 'The Empress of Tomorrow' didn't waste any time getting back to her.
The Man vs The Empress
Asuka enjoyed an unbeaten streak in NXT and it only continued even after she joined the main roster. During that time, she squared off against Becky Lynch and emerged victorious. Fightful pointed out that Asuka is yet to lose a match where 'The Man' is involved.
At Survivor Series 2017, Asuka emerged as the sole survivor by defeating Lynch's team. Asuka also won the first ever all female Royal Rumble, despite Lynch's involvement.
'The Man' then lost her SmackDown Women's Championship to Asuka in a Triple Threat TLC Match last year. 'The Empress' successfully retained the title against Lynch by forcing her to tap out at this year's Royal Rumble pay-per-view. Fast forward to this week, The Kabuki Warriors stood tall over the reigning RAW Women's Champion.
Undoubtedly, Becky Lynch is eager to settle the score with Asuka, which is why she challenged 'The Empress of Tomorrow' to a war.
The Kabuki Warriors
Asuka and Kairi Sane began teaming up earlier this year. They have been working toward the goal of becoming WWE Women's Tag Team Championship for quite some time. The duo defeated Alexa Bliss and Nikki Cross and Hell in a Cell to become the new WWE Women's Tag Team Champions.
Back-to-back, Asuka helped her team to win using the green mist, and it will be interesting to see how her character evolves following these recent victories.
