Re: Why is Asuka not challenging Becky?

Because WWE doesn't really care about Asuka or logic and prefers that Charlotte and Lacey get the spotlight right now. Assuming Becky doesn't lose both titles at MITB, maybe Asuka will be a filler challenger on the road to Summerslam. For now, her role is helping Kairi get established.

Because continuity doesn't exist in this company.

Re: Why is Asuka not challenging Becky?

In kayfabe, I don't know, she's focusing on her new life as a tag team wrestler.

Out of kayfabe, which is what matters here, they don't want Asuka in that spot. They never treated her like a true champion after her and Becky were done with each other, she faded away into irrelevance. She only ever beat Becky to put doubt in fans minds that she might not win the Rumble.

And now they've got Becky as their top woman. Charlotte's still in the mix. And they want to push Lacey. And with Asuka they're keeping her busy with Kairi to give her something to do.

No grand explanation but again, Asuka got her reign because Becky had to lose, she didn't do anything with it once Becky was out of the picture. And now that Becky has her belts, they've got Asuka down the card doing something else.

Re: Why is Asuka not challenging Becky?

probably because it's lonely at the top. She has friends now. She wasn't enjoying herself as champ.

Re: Why is Asuka not challenging Becky?

Just pick this three from Vince's brain :

A) Don't have an idea about her but she's useful to get more money from Asia market.

B) Don't care about her as long she's on tv and still want that money from Asia market.

C ) Throw her back to the title picture when the women's title start look meaningless and delegitimize her reign then make her drop it off to Charlotte and Vince still want the money from Asia market.

Re: Why is Asuka not challenging Becky?

Vince has never been good at pushing Asian talent well, that's going back decades. Hell JR had to tell him about Asian porn sites just to get him to hire Gail Kim, which is just sad to think about.

Not saying he's a racist or anything, but I think that he just doesn't "get" their appeal or know how to use them well in-general.

That was so fucking stupid. Imagine if they had Austin tap out to Owen Hart before he won the Rumble and beat Shawn for the title. Imagine if they had Batista tap out to Jericho before he won the Rumble and beat HHH for the title. If that was their thought process, it's genuinely awful booking. No wonder nobody is a star anymore.

He's definitely racist. There's varying degrees of racism. I'm not saying he wishes harm on any other races, but he clearly favours Caucasians & Samoans. Look at guys like MVP and Booker T, I know Booker got his charity reign in 2006, but if they were white or samoan they would have been multiple time world champions given their level of talent. There is absolutely no doubt about that. Maybe it's not textbook racism, but it's definitely racial bias.

Re: Why is Asuka not challenging Becky?

Kayfabe: Rematch clauses no longer exist, and Charlotte has a better claim due to losing the title without being pinned. If Asuka presses her claim for a rematch at the moment she won't just face Becky, she'll have to face Charlotte as well.

Normally if you go one on one with another wrestler you've got a 50/50 chance of winning, but if you add Charlotte to the mix, her chances of winning drastic go down, to about thirty three and a third.

Her best chance of winning is to wait and make a claim after Charlotte and Becky Part XV is done.

Non-kayfabe: Charlotte's just a bigger match. Besides, do you want Asuka to lose again? Because that's what she'll be doing if she faces Becky any time soon.

Re: Why is Asuka not challenging Becky?

Some would argue Becky vs Asuka at RR was a better match. Especially after Bexs gave Asuka the Bexploder off the top rope and they traded submission holds. I was on edge for the last 5 mintues.

I even went back to the match and knowing the outcome I still got that heighten tension

Re: Why is Asuka not challenging Becky?

Because she's not a blonde white lady. It's okay though, watching her and Kairi work together should be awesome, and the inevitable feud that it will lead to will be (almost) undoubtedly badass.
