Nobody is ready for Asuka. And The Empress of Tomorrow proved that by not being pinned or submitted from her debut in NXT in October 2015 until WrestleMania 34 in April 2018.

Marching to the ring in a traditional noh mask and kaleidoscopic battle gear and looking every bit the victor before the opening bell even rings, Asuka has used her perfect technique and wicked intentions to take down everybody from Becky Lynch to Bayley (whom Asuka unseated as NXT Women’s Champion). All the while, the fierce Japanese Superstar has worn an intimidating smile on her face, seemingly finding joy in stretching out her overmatched opponents. She even displayed an ability to work well with others, melding with The Miz to win the first season of WWE's Mixed Match Challenge.

Her undefeated streak came to an end at the hands of SmackDown Women's Champion Charlotte Flair at WrestleMania 34, but Asuka persevered and finally captured the SmackDown Women’s Title at WWE TLC after defeating Flair and Becky Lynch in the first-ever Women’s TLC Match. Most recently, Asuka linked up with Kairi Sane to form one of the blue brand's danegrous duos under the direction of former SmackDown LIVE General manager Paige.
