At WWE’s TLC, Asuka will make her official main roster debut in a match against Emma. The match was added on tonight’s Monday Night after Emma won a Five Way Elimination Match featuring Alicia Fox, Bayley, Dana Brooke and Sasha Banks.

Earlier in the evening, the featured female Superstars all met with Raw General Manager Kurt Angle all determined to be Asuka’s first opponent in her main roster match.

During the Five Way Elimination match, Dana Brooke was the first woman to be eliminated after Bayley landed a Bayley-to-Belly Suplex. Shortly afterwards, Sasha tried to roll up Bayley for the three count but only earned a two count.

The pin attempt caused a riffle between the two usually friendly Superstars and Alicia Fox capitalized the moment to hit a Scissors Kick on Bayley for the second elimination of the match.

The remaining three Superstars continued to battle it out until Sasha locked in the Bank Statement onto Alicia for the third elimination. Emma quickly ran in to then roll Sasha up for the three count and right to face Asuka at TLC.final elimination

Already announced for TLC is the Raw Women’s Championship match that will see Alexa Bliss defend her title against Mickie James.

WWE’s TLC takes place live on Sunday, October 22nd at 8 PM ET on the WWE Network.

Are you excited for this match?

  • mckenzie

    Alicia’s attire ??????????? #bomb

    • KingsPromise

      She looks AMAZING

    • mckenzie

      And Dana’s hair ??

      • Richy Kelly

        Omg dana’s Hair and foxy’s outfit

  • Darryl lee

    I’ve only got one thing to say….

    R.I.P Emma. It was nice knowing you.

    • Dan Prince

      Match prediction : kick to face Emma loses in 8 seconds ?

  • mckenzie

    Emma is the first to face Asuka. They have great chemistry. That’s awesome and definently a match for the record books. Both are future champs.

  • Allyn

    No!!!!!! Why must Emma be the first one fed to Asuka?!!!!! Emma was just starting to get somewhere, why couldn’t it had been bayley!!! She has the least to lose since no ones checking for her.

    • Izzy4lw

      As unfortunate as it sounds she was the only logical choice. They will save Asuka/Bayley for a match down the road to rehash their NXT feud, and everyone is salivating at an Asuka/Sasha feud since both are known to be ring generals and all around workhorses. Alexa is busy with Mickie, Dana isn’t good enough to give Asuka a back and forth PPV quality match yet, and WWE seems to forget Alicia Fox exists come PPV time.

      • Maddox

        Plus the first Emma vs Asuka match delivered

      • Allyn

        Yeah but it’s feeling like this match will be a one and done since there will be no build, we won’t see Asuka till the match? What’s the draw and why should we be invested in this except the fact that it’s a main roster debut and we all know she will not be losing….

    • wysna

      But you know, if they do pull a fast one on us–AKA, having Emma actually beat Asuka in her debut match–I would be so alright with it. It wouldn’t make much sense though unless booked properly

      • Allyn

        Raw creative doesn’t comprehend the meaning of booking properly.

    • ???

      I don’t mind Emma losing, IF they let her look strong but if it’s a squash match I’M DONE .

      • Allyn

        That’s what I’m afraid of

    • The Earl of Lemongrab

      Damn it at least have her have Dana to the ringside. I would fine with her losing if EnD reunited, like Emma and Dana trying to get back at Asuka

      • Allyn

        Exactly if this is not anything more than just a match to establish Asukas power then I’m out! There needs to be some sort of story that comes out of this.

  • Phew Asuka is coming, we’re using her as one of the main selling point of TLC and we are presenting her as this huge force. So let’s have her face… Emma. That’ll do.

    With all the respect due to Emma’s talent, i’m not a fan of this, as I believe that a victory over her won’t mean or accomplish much for Asuka, due to her position within the division. I imagine the point of this match is to introduce her to the audience, but I believe a victory over Bayley or Sasha would have had a much bigger impact than a victory over Emma.

    Besides, I don’t expect this match to reach the quality of their Takeover encounter.

    On the bright side, with Fox and Dana in the match as well, Emma wasn’t the WORST choice either. And all in all, they did a good job building anticipation. Asuka feels like a big deal. As she should.

    • That’s the downside of Raw’s booking. Only a few are relevant so then when someone new steps in it doesn’t look realistic because they’ve been buried all the time.
      Also Asuka vs Bayley and Sasha are big matches and they won’t waste them on her first match!

  • Don ?

    Asuka’s gonna kill you, Asuka’s gonna kill you, Asuka’s gonna kill you https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/6b023ac27a7f2c9c92218f0aa7e556b5650387b8c264c7526767e15ed36ef195.gif

  • conan_kun

    Since Nakamura and Roode need more than 10 minutes to beat Ziggler, what about Asuka, will she squash Emma in less than 5 minutes or have a close fight like they did back to NXT TakeOver: London.

    And does Emma cure her trauma against Asuka already
    https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/f4b0a8db0e840a8b847ba250c758c099636d0ff6fc820583d8f519dbe2f29cf7.gif

  • Hopefully this match is booked in a way that protects emma

    • Sass.

      I don’t think a loss to Asuka would hurt any woman on the roster unless it’s a pure squash. She’s been built as the greatest female competitor in history. The fall of the Empress is going to give someone one hell of a rub one day. I’m personally hoping it’s Ember Moon at Summerslam 2018, being that she’s the woman who came the closest, in the same arena as the year before.

      • #FlairfortheGold

        NEXT! Ember had her chance twice already…

        • ???

          I think Sasha or Charlotte are better choices ..

  • TorrieTrishStacyLita

    Emma they feeding you to the sharks Girl. But take the coin sis for being her first opponent ?

  • brock

    Not excited one bit, I would rather have seen Asuka vs Sasha or Asuka vs Bayley cause they would have been a better match

    • conan_kun

      You think Asuka gonna loses in her PPV debut match when her debut is potentially a squash match or you prefer Bayley or Sasha get feed to Asuka or even squash by Asuka right away.

      • brock

        I never said Asuka was going to lose, But Emma isn’t a believable opponent for her first match on The Main Roster, I have Seen Bayley vs Asuka and it was a good match and I have have always wanted to see Asuka vs Sasha it’s a dream match and it would be awesome

        • conan_kun

          Why throwing a dream match at TLC when there’s only one more week left for build up, Sasha vs Asuka need more weeks to build up during Royal Rumble or Wrestlemania season.

          • brock

            Because there is Talk of doing a Women’s Royal Rumble Match at Royal Rumble so I don’t see it happening there and WWE neve does 1 on 1 Women’s Matches at Wrestlemania So That’s probably out to, I have been waiting for 2 years to see Asuka vs Sasha I am sick of waiting

    • LIGHTSOUT

      you don’t know if Sasha and Asuka would’ve had a better match cus they never faced before and we don’t know if they got chemistry. And Emma vs Asuka was great match

      • brock

        Emma vs Asuka wasn’t that good, Sasha vs Asuka would be a awesome match Why because Sasha has good matches with everyone and because Sasha is better than Emma

        • LIGHTSOUT

          “Emma vs Asuka wasn’t that good” LMAO WHAT U BEEN SMOKING?

          • brock

            You act like Asuka vs Emma was a Match of Year candidate it was good but not that good what are you smoking, Sasha Vs Asuka would blow that match out of the water

          • LIGHTSOUT

            IT WAS ONE OF THE BEST MATCHES THAT YEAR, LAY OFF THE CRACK BOY LMAO

          • brock

            It wasn’t one of the best matches of that year your Who is on the crack

          • LIGHTSOUT

            lol do you even watch wrestling?

          • brock

            I have been watching wrestling since 1990, Emma and Asuka Had One Match and you act like it’s greatest Women’s Match ever news flash it isn’t, I have Seen plenty of Women’s Matches Better Than That, a Sasha vs Asuka Match would blow that Emma vs Asuka Match out of the water Why because Sasha is better than Emma

          • LIGHTSOUT

            LOL a little bit more reach and you can touch the sky. I never implied it was the best match ever, I just said it was one of the best matches of that year, I know there were a lot of better matches out there. Stop saying Sasha and Asuka would be better cus YOU DON’T KNOW if they got chemistry or not.

          • brock

            You’re not changing my mind so give it up, Sasha vs Asuka will blow, Emma vs Asuka out of the water

          • LIGHTSOUT

            kk boo, call me when u step out of your fantasy world

          • brock

            It’s a free country I can say whatever I want if you don’t like it to bad get over it, You’re clearly a Sasha hater who doesn’t respect her ability Sasha has good matches with everyone and that’s a fact

          • LIGHTSOUT

            LMAOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO, THE STUPIDTY. Mate, I never said she has bad matches and Sasha is one of the girls stan the most, just because I don’t blindly believe she’s the greatest wrestlers ever doesn’t mean I hate her.

          • brock

            Sasha and Askua are 2 of best Female Wrestlers in WWE and because I said they will have a better match than Emma and Askua you threw a Hissey fit, Remember Emma and Askua never Wrestled each other before that night 2 years ago and there Match turned out okay, So chemistry isn’t everything, From what I have seen from Sasha and Askua I have no doubt they will have a awesome match when they finally Wrestle

          • LIGHTSOUT

            “there Match turned out okay” bye

          • brock

            Bye and good riddance’s

          • LIGHTSOUT

            praise the Lord

      • Organization XIII

        Sasha has chemistry with literally every woman she’s encountered thus far. I’m sure that won’t be an issue

        • LIGHTSOUT

          Still, we don’t know. Everyone thought Paige and AJ would work great together and it wasn’t the case.

          • Organization XIII

            They had good matches. Not 5 star but I enjoyed them

    • Those are big matches, they won’t waste them immediately.

  • Rosanna

    So proud of Alicia tonight. After Asuka squash Emma let’s continue this Alicia and Emma feud friendship or whatever there about to do.

  • king valor

    already the best match of the night if given time. emma vs asuka II. In a perfect world asuka wins but the next night emma beats her down with an assist from dana to extend the feud.

    • Crazy. #RIPMae

      Well, they did fight on a regular show of NXT before too.

    • ???

      If we get Emma and Dana reunited I will scream from happiness! This NEEDS to happen once again because they have great chemistry.. plus Dana is awful as baby face..

  • Can’t wait. I hope they give them time and they can steal the show like they did a TO: London.

    • Izzy4lw

      To be fair, the only other women’s match has Alexa who’s yet to have a standout match, and Mickie James who is phenomenal, but isn’t known to be able to carry less experienced talent. Meanwhile, Emma is an incredibly underrated technical wrestler, and Asuka is a beast. This match will easily outpace Alexa/Mickie, and already feels more important because of the gravitas they’ve put around Asuka’s debut. I’m expecting these two to really put on a show.

      • Exactly. Alexa and Mickie might surprise us but Emma and Asuka will most definitely be the better match, if they make it more than a squash of course.

    • TAYNARA CUNTI.

      Finn vs Samoa clearly stole the show.

      • Clearly not.

        • Moan of ‘Licia

          Why you so delusional?

  • Hangga

    hope it ends in count out

  • Jo9834

    Its better than her being off TV preparing to be the non existent Emmalina for 16 weeks, Id rather have her devoured by Asuka than by catering any day.

  • conan_kun
  • Crazy. #RIPMae

    That match will be great! I’m excited!

  • 3???????

    I just don’t see what this does for Emma ?????

    • Kelly/Asuka???RainbowGoddess!

      If she gets that jobber entrance at TLC, then you’ll know she’s done.

      • jxs_

        LOL, they always show full entrances on PPV, there are no commercials ?

  • 3???????

    Match will be good but poor Emma

  • Kelly/Asuka???RainbowGoddess!

    As excited as I am for Asuka vs Emma at TLC its really gonna depend on booking and Vince. This ain’t NXT and this is Vince we are talking about. Booking can go either way, 1) a match that’s similar to their Takeover were both women get to shine and showcase their movesets or 2) its a squash match :( I’m hoping to get a match similar to their takeover match because Emma gave Asuka hell and it was not an easy win for Asuka but jump 2 years later, Asuka is 1000x’s stronger now and has Emma improved (character development wise)? Let’s see what happens in 2 weeks. Hopefully this won’t be the last of Emma in Asuka’s path before Asuka wins the title.

  • Gail-Rollins Fan

    I really wish Emma would have won the belt at the last ppv because I really see that as her last chance for a while. Even a one month reign would have been something.

    Hopefully Mickie beats Alexa and then goes on to feud with Asuka, because if we get an Alexa/Asuka feud there’s always a chance Vince will let his golden child go over. Asuka shouldn’t even be selling for bliss, much less get beat by her..

    • Gerg

      Hopefully, her match with asuka makes her look less like a “Jillian Hall” in the eyes of the wwe universe.

      Same, I rather Mickie win the title then put over Asuka than lose just to put Bliss over.

    • Maddox

      Alexa is the golden girl for a reason. But I doubt She will go over Asuka

      • GOD STRATUS•

        What’s that reason ?

        • Maddox

          Cuz that’s who the fans care most about. And she’s got tons of charisma and Mic skills

          • GOD STRATUS•

            The fans care most about bliss ? .. again is she selling any merch ? Like ass in seats merch cos the fans care about her so much sure they’re buying her merch or at least going to her signings …. Does she have any of those ?

          • Ryan Stratus

            Your obsession of the great Alexa Bliss is too real. I’m going to need you to go read a book or find something to slob. You harass anyone that mentions Alexa Bliss. Find your life peasant.

          • GOD STRATUS•

            Wow personal insults to get over. Much like the woman your defending. I’ll not stoop to such levels cos I don’t know you

          • Ryan Stratus

            That insulted you??? ? I apologize. I didnt know your relationship with Sasha was that thick. Just do yourself a favor and dont @ me. Positive vibes only. Have a blessed evening?

          • Ryan Stratus

            Do you know how much she sells?!! We obviously don’t know! How about you send us a reliable source that shows her merchandise selling compared to the rest. I mean I don’t even get into all of this I watch RAW and SDLive. That’s it!! I also see you trying to reach for the likes of Charlotte. You do know Sasha is apart of the 4HW and you do know where that term originated right?!?? You do realize if Sasha wasn’t apart of the 4HW she wouldn’t amount to nothing, right?? You do know if Snoop Dogg wasn’t her cousin she wouldn’t have even touched an NXT platform right?!! You do realize her championship reigns are short and forgettable, right? It’s only a matter of time before she gets released and turns to impact wrestling that’ll soon be on the WWE Network. Alexa Bliss has been the forefront of the division for months now and if you’re not on board with the movement I’m going to need you to get the F out the way and turn to Impact Wrestling and find your fav. No soda just tea. Boo and bye ????????

          • GOD STRATUS•

            Again the vitriol coming from you is intense dk why your mad but please find a place to lay your burdens down

          • Ryan Stratus

            Burdens… you mean FACTS. Mkayy, girl bye.

          • Maddox

            Yes to all of that

  • Corey Anderson

    I have so many questions how did this become a fatal five way and what happened to nia

    • conan_kun

      Get chickened out against Asuka already.

  • BC

    So they had a match to see who would job to Asuka first? Lmaoooo

    Jk in all seriousness, I’m excited to see it! I hope they repeat the spot near the end of their other match when Asuka went for the Asuka lock and had the crowd going wild lol.

  • conan_kun

    Bayley is clearly upset to Sasha trying to eliminate her when she don’t know it every woman for herself, what if Bayley is upset that Sasha bumps on her leading her to get eliminated, but of course they will make out again like always

    • YonceLuvsDivas

      I caught that too. They are slowly making her a bit more aggressive so she can easily transition into being heel.

  • ???

    Do you guys think any of the women’s matches will have tables or ladders or chairs ?

    I hope Mickie vs Alexa will be chairs match since Alexa vs Becky last year had table match.. they may or may not get extreme match but I REALLY HOPE because Mickie will deliver like a queen!!

    Emma vs Asuka will definitely be just a regular match ..

    At least one of the women’s matches should be more than a regular competition so it’ll not be boring .

    • conan_kun

      See how they didn’t let Alexa go through a table and eat any Kendo stick even once, I rather not, feel like WWE officials don’t want Alexa to take a weapon shot.

      • Gerg

        probably dont want her to get hurt so she wont be put on the shelf..

    • YonceLuvsDivas

      They should because WWE already missed the opportunity wit HIAC. They pretty much owe us one.

      • ???

        I know , see ? That exactly my point !

        Charlotte and Natalya feud hasn’t been build up before HIAC so no point in having cage match with no storyline before it ..

        Mickie James and Alexa’s feud has been build up enough now, with next week they’ll add more heat for sure .

  • NoWayHoeSay

    So the match was just so the winner could be on a ppv? Huns I would of done a Gail Kim and rolled out at the start. Bye

  • Monkey Tennis

    It was always gonna be Emma. Bayley and Sasha are too high up the card to be beaten by Asuka on her debut and a victory over Alicia and Dana would be meaningless. Emma occupies the middle ground, even despite her recent booking.

    And I’m going to be very surprised if this isn’t a straight up squash.

    • TAYNARA CUNTI.

      Alicia is well above Dana, going by her credentials alone. You always hate on the WOC.

      • Diva_Fan

        In terms of the pecking order as of right now I would say Emma is above Alicia . She was in the title match at No Mercy for example

        • ???

          From what I see it, this is how much strong the women of Raw are (booking wise recently)

          1- Alexa Bliss
          2- Sasha Banks
          3- Nia Jax
          4- Bayley (Ever since Extreme Rules they made her less strong )
          5- Mickie James (Just started to get over )
          6- Emma (steal multiple pins and competed in 2 PPV and the 2nd is TLC )
          7- Alicia Fox (She has always been booked horribly, but at least she pinned both Sasha before and now Bayley )
          8- Dana Brooke (Poor girl, completely buried )

  • TAYNARA CUNTI.

    Yawn.. #GiveAliciaAPush.

  • A?.

    This match was hella pointless, but it was a cute one. Dana is too underrated.

  • Aye Mate

    Mess. Bayley and Sasha queuing up to face Asuka I can understand; Bayley never overcame Asuka and Sasha’s character is always going to be defined by competitiveness. But the other women, particularly Dana and Emma seeming so desperate to get their asses kicked again, was a bit sketchy to me. Shame for Emma, too. I doubt TLC will be as competitive as their London Takeover clash.

  • IconicTrio

    I would have preferred Alicia to get the surprise win, a bit of showcasing and build up against local competitors then have a nice 7 minute match against Asuka where she does lose but gets to bust out some cool new moves.

    Or Bayley. Have her squashed then back to the drawing board since her character is flailing anyway.

    Why do this to Emma? She has more to lose than anyone there. :(

  • I was so excited when I saw this last night, both had the perfect match when Emma’s found her hell persona and Asuka was getting use to WWE style. I can’t wait to see if they can deliver an explosive match.

  • MK126

    I don’t really see the point of this match since we know Emma is gonna lose. Granted itll definitely be a great match because of their TakeOver match but I would have loved to see Asuka attack the winner of the women’s title match.

  • ThePeaceVibe.

    I’m confused why someone didn’t lie down and allow themselves to be eliminated. Lol poor Emma. I hope they at least make it a good match and not a squash.

  • Organization XIII

    I honestly don’t expect much from this match. I see Asuka pretty much running thru Emma sadly but we’ll see what happens

  • Miguel

    RAW is again relying on NXT’s already successful matches…

  • Nathan

    I’m just happy Emma has another PPV match :)

  • Vito

    im so excited, i love them together

  • Diva_Fan

    Even though Asuka will inevitably win I hope it’s still a good match where Emma gets some good offence in and not a squash match. !

  • For the confused people about why we’re excited Emma is involved–
    It doesn’t matter who Asuka’s first match is against, she’s gonna win. It’s nice to see Emma getting a one-on-one PPV match because that hasn’t happened in ages (or ever if counting main roster matches only). So this is an opportunity to show the audience who may have not seen the NXT Takeover match.
    Oh and I want to again point out that we haven’t seen Emma’s finisher on the main roster in years. I wonder why that is…

    • NoWayHoeSay

      What even is here finisher

      • Well it was the “Emma Lock” submission. Only way I know how to describe it is by referencing Victoria and Velvet Sky since they both use it too.
        I’d like to see her do an inverted arm bar similar to her Emma Lock. Also, I think her butterfly suplex could be an impactful finisher.

        • NoWayHoeSay

          Yeh the Emma lock I remember, think it’s the michinouku driver now

        • LIGHTSOUT

          Victoria and Velvet?

        • Gail-Rollins Fan

          Neither Victoria nor Velvet used that move, Melina did.

          • Haha shit. I totally thought I’ve seen them both do it but I couldn’t find any videos of them. My b

          • Sarona

            Victoria has.

  • PYM #TakeOverSmackdown

    Ugh it should be Sasha… Emma is just gonna get massacred like last time. At least if it was Sasha they’d put on a clinic and we’d maybe get to see more Sasha/Bayley tension with possibly Bayley accidentally costing Sasha the match.

  • Michael Max

    Kind of an awkward stipulation, I mean, I guess each girls wants to prove themselves but damn lol Foxy and Dana will surely have their chance to job to Asuka haha

  • Dreignz

    Lmao they’re really fighting for a match agains Asuka, to be squashed ?

  • This whole match was jokes. No one knew the match type and the winner gets fed to Asuka https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/1926c6b6489d475be954f2297dacb45fb0458c4ed7785e8cbe7fc4b17977ade3.gif

    Man! I feel like a woman!

    The best thing about being a woman
    Is the prerogative to have a little fun (fun, fun)

    Oh, oh, oh, go totally crazy, forget I’m a lady
    Men’s shirts, short skirts
    Oh, oh, oh, really go wild, yeah, doin’ it in style
    Oh, oh, oh, get in the action, feel the attraction
    Color my hair, do what I dare
    Oh, oh, oh, I wanna be free, yeah, to feel the way I feel
    (to feel the way I feel)
    Man! I feel like a woman!
    I get totally crazy
    Can you feel it
    Come, come, come on baby
    I feel like a woman
