In another sign of respect among peers coming out of the NXT TakeOver: In Your House show, RAW Women’s Champion Asuka recorded a quick congratulatory video to Io Shirai after “The Genius of the Sky” defeated Rhea Ripley and Charlotte Flair in the triple-threat match at the TakeOver special to become the new NXT Women’s Champion.

“Congratulations, Io-chan,” said an excited Asuka in the video. “Yeah, you’re now a NXT Women’s Champion!”

Her quick video clip wrapped up with her telling Shirai to join her in her quest to strive for greatness as a champion.

“Let’s both strive for the best,” she concluded.
