Asuka takes on Emma tonight on WWE NXT
Though there is a little more than a week until her highly anticipated showdown with NXT Women’s Champion Bayley at TakeOver: Dallas, No. 1 contender Asuka is not holding back. The Empress of Tomorrow is looking to stay sharp for the title fight by taking on the ever-dangerous Emma tonight on WWE Network.
With April 1 drawing near, Asuka recently took to Instagram to explain what the championship match means to her, reflecting on her impeccable record in the ring and the speed at which she ascended to the No 1 contender’s spot.
“However, these achievements will only be shattered into pieces if I lose to Bayley,” she said, declaring the match to be “a big chance and a big risk.”
But before she gets to Dallas, Asuka will have to get through Emma. The Australian competitor has been a thorn in The Empress of Tomorrow’s side since Asuka’s arrival in NXT, but has yet to defeat her. There’s no better time than now for Emma to slam the brakes on Asuka’s ride to the top of NXT.
Will Asuka’s road to TakeOver: Dallas be a smooth ride, or will Emma show that there’s room for another dominant woman in NXT? Find out tonight at 8/7 C, only on WWE Network!
