How will Asuka react to her loss to Carmella?
Asuka may have thought she had Carmella all to herself with James Ellsworth suspended above the ring in a shark cage. Unfortunately, that didn’t stop Ellsworth from meddling in the bout, first by dropping foreign objects into the ring to the SmackDown Women’s Champion, then by escaping the cage and inadvertently distracting The Empress of Tomorrow, allowing Carmella to shove Asuka head-first into the cage and steal the victory.
Though Asuka got a measure of payback on Ellsworth by pummeling him as he dangled upside down from the cage, she did not leave Pittsburgh with the SmackDown Women’s Title. Will her hunt for the gold continue on SmackDown LIVE?
