From the WWE Rumor Mill: Identity of the jobber who faced Asuka reportedly revealed
What's the story?
In the first hour of Monday Night Raw tonight from Manchester, England, Asuka took on a jobber by the name of Stacy Coates. As expected, the match lasted just a couple of minutes, and according to Daily Wrestling News, the identity of this enhancement talent is United Kingdom indie wrestler Isla Dawn.
In case you didn't know...
After the match against "Stacy Coates", the Raw Women's team captain, Alicia Fox, announced that Asuka would be the third competitor on Team Raw, joining her and Nia Jax.
The heart of the matter
The 23-year old Dawn is a trained professional dancer and also has a background in kickboxing and boxing.
Squared Circle Sirens also reported that she was one of several wrestlers in the United Kingdom to receive a tryout for the WWE during their stay in Europe.
Dawn started her professional wrestling career in 2014 and was trained by former ECW World Heavyweight Champion Mikey Whipwreck and Tommy End, who is now known as Aleister Black in NXT.
She's previously wrestled for Insane Championship wrestling in the United Kingdom; which is a promotion that has a relationship with the WWE. In fact, Triple H recently appeared at once of their shows, and the WWE United Kingdom Championship has been defended in the promotion as well.
It's exactly what they did with Ryback and Braun Strowman when they first started on their own. At this point, you can't rush Asuka into the WWE Raw Women's Championship picture, so at this point, it's best to have her destroy jobbers or enhancement talent until it's time to put her in the title picture.
