Asuka Interview with Newsweek

29 posts in this topic

NXT Superstar Asuka continues to break records and is on the verge of setting a new milestone in her reign as NXT Women’s Champion: 500 days as champion! After that, Asuka will only be a few days away from the second longest reigning Women’s Champion in WWE history, only behind The Fabulous Moolah.

In an interview with  Newsweek, Asuka discusses joining the WWE, the records she’s broken and which main roster Superstars she’d like to compete against. Highlights of the interview below.

On signing with WWE: “When I decided to sign a contract with WWE, I decided two things. I was determined not only to win, but to leave [breaking] records. That is something I feel like I can do as a return to WWE [for hiring me].”

Wanting to change women’s wrestling in the WWE: “I wanted to change women’s wrestling in WWE. In wrestling, men and women do the same thing, but sometimes the men look more powerful and more impressive. I am trying my best to fill the gap between men and women.”

Thought on joining WWE’s main roster: “I’m going to go to TakeOver and beat Ember Moon and keep my title. Then I will probably go to Raw or SmackDown and get another title. Of course I want to go to Raw or SmackDown, that’s one of the reasons I joined WWE. But I think there’s an appropriate timing…I’ll go when it’s the right time.”

On which main roster Superstar she’d like to face: “I don’t use the words ‘respect’ or ‘admire’ toward my opponents, but I’m interested to have matches with Sasha [Banks] and Charlotte [Flair]. Those two women I’ve never faced before.”

Asuka also discusses adjusting to life in America and advice she’s received from Triple H.

Wow I'm so glad me and her are on the same page! Asuka vs Sasha would be a wonderful match, but for some reason, I don't see her having much chemistry with Charlotte. That's just me though

I loved seeing her work with Dana/Emma, I kinda want to see her work with at least one of them again, and a match with Natalya would be cute too.

It's called click bait. I think you're just pressed Alexa or Nikki weren't mentioned. Stop with the hate in my notifications, it's getting weird

Asuka's great by herself but there's not one match of hers that has really stood out to me. They all start slow, then pick up and end out of nowhere. I don't like the formula she goes with so I can't say I'm that excited for the matches. I am however excited for Asuka the troll to start playing with the main roster girls in segments and such. :clap:

Her booking doesn't need to come up with her to the main roster she has surpassed Brock at this point when it comes to how they use her. I'm not here for either woman facing her if they continue to use the Asuka match formula. Hopefully she keeps a distance from the championship because I'm going to need a long break after she finally drops the Nxt women's title. Asuka leaving the land of Nxt will be a very interesting situation though I'm curious to see how she will do on Raw or Smackdown.

My title keeps being changed and I'm being threatened with a ban if I change it again. I just want everyone to know that I have a gun held to my head, and I want justice

Sis, when your ulterior motive is solely to mention your fave because she was vaguely mentioned, It's warranted.
Especially when you were warned multiple times that the topic didn't surround her- canceling her inclusion on the title.
If you wanted to mention her so bad you could've made a post under the OP, or put it in the OP and called it a day.

In the future sit there and eat your food.

For future reference, don't bring your arguments from discord onto here. The title change was justified and that is that.

I'm all for her to have a match with Charlotte or Sasha, although I think it would be better if she went to SmackDown. It was a cute interview.

@Rahgeme For someone that puts Sasha over Nikki, you wanna be Nikki so bad, in terms of having everyone pressed over you lmao. You being the heel they refuse to make your fav, why not try out a babyface era?

On topic, her matches with Sasha and Charlotte would both shit. Moreso with Charlotte only because I can't see them having Asuka finish her in that sudden corny fashion. Sasha I can honestly.

      Professional queens! Yes, they don't like each other, but they put that aside for the sake of putting on a good match.
      From Alexa's interview on this week's Cheap Heat podcast:
      "I've always been the person to say 'business is business, personal is personal.' I will never let my personal feelings about somebody get in the way of business. I want to have a productive match, I want to have a safe match, I want to have a great match; I want to take this company to the next level with our women with this women's revolution. I've seen the things she said about me. If that's how she feels, that's fine. But we know that we put it to the side and have a productive, professional match because that's what it's all about. I'm trusting her with my body, she's trusting me with hers, and I will never ever... I never want to have somebody's injury or somebody's misstep or something happen on my watch. So I know that no matter what I'm always going to be in professional mode. It doesn't matter how we feel about each other, the point is we have a job to do and we have to go and we have to do it well."
