Asuka def. Raw Women's Champion Alexa Bliss

Asuka def. Raw Women's Champion Alexa Bliss

Last week, Asuka declared for the Women’s Royal Rumble Match by attacking Alexa Bliss. This week, the Raw Women’s Champion got a taste of what Asuka might actually do if she wins the Rumble Match in a first-time bout that wasn’t just WrestleMania-worthy, but a potential WrestleMania preview.

That Raw General Manager Kurt Angle didn’t make the first-time ever clash between Asuka and Bliss for the championship was the only mercy afforded to Five Feet of Fury; not only did Asuka power through a cagy opening sequence by the champion, but The Goddess’ enforcer Nia Jax was too busy delivering chicken soup to a flu-stricken Enzo Amore to back her up.

Alexa’s best chance was a cat-and-mouse game that paid dividends, thanks to a ruthless kick to the stomach that kicked off a monster run from Bliss. Alexa kept the pressure on, coming perhaps closer than anyone to shattering Asuka’s undefeated streak, but a slap to the face proved to be a fatal mistake from Little Miss Bliss. With her fighting spirit awakened, Asuka ripped off a near-spotless rally, culminating in a match-ending armbar that may well end up earning her a title opportunity in the future.
