Asuka def. Thea Trinidad and gets a warning from Mickie James
Seeing the NXT Women’s division as her personal playground, NXT Women’s Champion Asuka took to the ring this week and toyed with Thea Trinidad, letting the newcomer get a few shots in before steamrolling over her. After forcing Trinidad to tap out with a Fujiwara armbar, NXT General Manager William Regal arrived with a message for The Empress of Tomorrow from her TakeOver: Toronto opponent, the returning Mickie James.
James warned that though Asuka may have defeated everyone in her path, she hasn’t faced anyone like her. The former Women’s Champion and Divas Champion warned that an “international incident” was going down in Toronto, which brought a smile to The Empress of Tomorrow’s face.
