Asuka is back!!
After a nine-month absence, The Empress of Tomorrow has made her return to Raw. She interrupted Becky Lynch who had made her return to Raw herself for the first time since losing to Bianca Belair at WrestleMania.
Lynch made her way to the ring to deal with the elephant in the room – she is no longer the Raw Women’s Champion. It has been three years since Lynch had to walk out to the crowd on Raw without a championship. Minus her time away from the ring for her maternity leave, Lynch had been with gold since 2019.
Big Time Becks was at first somber in her delivery, but she quickly turned it into cockiness as she knows there is nowhere to go but up after declaring that she has hit rock bottom. Nobody does a comeback like Lynch according to her. She vows to become Raw Women’s Champion and hold the title forever and no one can stop her. Not Bianca, Sonya, Dana Brooke, Liv, Tamina….
As Lynch was naming off names, Asuka’s music hits.
The Empress joins Becky in the ring and says that she will be the one to stop her. She seals the deal with a flick to the nose of Lynch. Lynch goes to deliver a punch to Asuka who ducks out of the way and comes back with a strike of her own that Lynch avoids. Lynch escapes the ring to end the segment.
