Asuka def. Billie Kay
Not to be upstaged by her Royal Rumble opponent, SmackDown Women’s Champion Asuka took on Billie Kay on the spot on SmackDown LIVE. With Lynch watching from ringside, The Empress of Tomorrow made short work of Kay, finishing off her unexpected opponent with the Asuka Lock in dominant fashion. Becky returned to the ring for an intense standoff with Asuka, as champion and challenger both were ready for their clash at Royal Rumble in two weeks.
