Asuka responded to a recent Twitter post from Mandy Rose. The post featured a pic of Rose with the SmackDown Women’s Championship on her shoulder, accompanied by the hashtag “total package.”
The pic was photoshopped of course, but it does suggest the possible outcome of the title match that’s sure to come. Asuka will likely defend her SmackDown Women’s Championship against Rose at Fastlane, though that match has yet to be announced.
Asuka has been missing in action for the past several weeks and is in need of a new challenger. Mandy Rose appears to be that challenger.
The ironic part about Asuka is that The Empress of Tomorrow tapped out Becky Lynch at The Royal Rumble. Yet, it’s Lynch that continued to make the headlines while Asuka had all but disappeared. WWE has yet to make Asuka versus Rose official, but it does seem to be the most logical match for the two Superstars.
