NXT Women’s Champion Asuka vs. Mickie James
Asuka has claimed that no one is ready to challenge her. The NXT Women’s Champion’s theory will be put to the test at NXT TakeOver: Toronto, when she defends her title against the returning Mickie James.
Since her arrival in NXT last fall, Asuka has dominated the competition. Everyone from the towering Nia Jax to the spirited Bayley has fallen before The Empress of Tomorrow. Asuka has remained undefeated since her debut, and though Superstars like Liv Morgan have tried to stand up to her in recent weeks, no one has been successful in knocking the champion off her pedestal.
With that in mind, NXT General Manager William Regal went outside the NXT roster to find Asuka’s next challenger. Mickie James is a 17-year veteran of the mat game, a five-time WWE Women’s Champion and a former Divas Champion. She’s defeated some of the greatest female competitors in WWE history, including Beth Phoenix and WWE Hall of Famer Trish Stratus. If anyone is ready for a war with Asuka, it’s James.
Will Asuka succeed the toughest test of her WWE career, or will Mickie James be the one to hand The Empress of Tomorrow her first defeat? Find out at NXT TakeOver: Toronto, live and exclusively on WWE Network, tonight at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT!
