Why is Asuka not challenging Becky?
 
Becky has both belts. Asuka is the only woman Becky has wrestled and never beaten. Asuka tapped her out a few months ago. Asuka ended her last title run. The feud writes itself, why aren't they going there? They could really play on Asuka having Becky's number, and make an interesting story out of it.

All it takes is Becky cutting a promo, "I have both belts I've beaten everyone" then Asuka comes out, simple fucking booking and a relatively fresh feud. Surely that would be better than Becky/Charlotte AGAIN and wasting Asuka in a tag team.

From a kayfabe standpoint, Asuka makes the most sense. She's the only person to defeat Becky since last August, and she did it twice. Charlotte has lost to Becky about 10 times in a row.

Because WWE doesn't value Asuka.

Because WWE has no concept of long term booking, and the only people to actually acknowledge Asuka's victory over Becky was a throwaway line on Smackdown during an interview with Asuka, and Becky in a recent interview where she talked about how she's tired of facing Charlotte and really wants to face Asuka again (because she has unfinished business with Asuka), and has taken an interest in Kairi as well.

I doubt it has anything to do with WWE's valuing of Asuka either. If they didn't value her, she would be cleanly jobbing to pretty much every heel they think would be a big deal right now.

I think WWE's sole goal right now is to get Charlotte to 16 reigns as soon as possible, to be honest.

You pretty much nailed it here. I think it'll be a while before they wrestle again too, cause I can't see Becky being on SD much longer. It's a shame cause they had a killer match earlier this year. You can tell Becky is super high on Asuka by the way she talks about her in interviews.

Charlotte will get 17 reigns most likely. They'll want her to surpass her Dad. I think the main reason they are rushing the reigns is so Ric is still alive to see her get #17 and celebrate with her.

The bottom line is, Asuka is ready to turn the Paige to the next chapter in her WWE career. So, she will pursue the Women's Tag Team titles with Sane.

Because she isn't booked to.

Because WWE "plays favorites." And it's even more obvious here. Charlotte losing/fails pretty much consistently for over nine months, yet they keep contriving ways to give her title shots no matter what. Seriously if ANY other woman had lost this much, they wouldn't still be in the title picture.

Lacey Evans gets a shot at the Raw belt after ONE match on the MR.

Asuka loses ONE match and is shoved completely out of the title picture, given ZERO character development, and is stuck in tag team limbo.

Yeah logically she does have the most legit claim to a shot at Becky. But WWE doesn't give a fuck about her or her character so they won't acknowledge that at all. Vince has got to push his "big boobed blondes" after all.

Real answer: Vince doesn't like her, doesn't respect her, and doesn't even really want her in the company.

Kayfabe answer: Because she's a loser who has no claim to a match with Becky. That win was months ago. She's jobbed to Mandy Rose and Sarah Logan since then. They wouldn't even have a competitive match now, Becky would win in 3 minutes.

she can't promo....Becky would have to carry the whole feud

They had a mini-feud a few months ago and it was quite a refreshing fun feud. Asuka actually gave a few heel teases, like beating Becky with a kendo stick unprovoked, and attacking her from behind leading to a brawl.

Plus, Asuka has Paige, who ironically used to be managed by Becky on the indies, their history could add layers to the story.
