Yes it's a shame that Asuka has gotten to a point where you knew she was going to be the one taking the pin in that triple threat match.
She was gone for nine months and she fizzled out in about six weeks maximum when she came back.

In that particular match, I’d say it made sense. As for her fizzling out this year, that has been the case since she arrived on the main roster under Vince. He made her tap after winning the rumble in 2018, which is awful booking for someone new to the main roster who was presented as a dominant face. After that she’s had spurts of good booking at the start of any title reign that then fizzled out. Vince never truly had plans for her after Mania 34 but because she was reliable, the titles and MITB fell to her but after HW feuds, he never seemed to know what to do for the balance of her reign. If those tweets aren’t kayfabe, then I assume she knew she had a ceiling with Vince but probably expected more from Trips.

Something tells me Asuka and Alexa Bliss are turning heel in the near future.
The question is if those turns are solely for Bianca to then beat them or if there are any plans for them beyond that. I absolutely did not want another Nikki Cross title run but I was surprised that he repackaged her only to have Bianca to beat her on RAW right away.

I haven't watched much pre WWE, but Asuka originally was way more vicious at times as Kana.

If we're getting that version of her, holy fuck yes please and have her just destroy people.
This would be a welcome change for her and make her engaging. She needs a hard reset on her gimmick. New attire, new look, new music, etc.

The women are so incredibly talented today...it is too bad that the way the division has been ran the past 3-4 years is so boring. I think I made a similar post yesterday so sorry to repeat myself, but it's the same handful always involved in the world titles and the rest of the roster just waits their turn at being a transitional champ. In between time they are randomly paired up to compete in the tag division.

I'd sure like to see one world title and a midcard title. Actual tag teams (while the men do more of this they still do the random singles being paired too often as well) to compete in the division on a consistent basis.
