"The Empress Of Tomorrow" Asuka, who is a former WWE RAW Women's Champion and a former 30-Woman Royal Rumble Match winner, is considered as one of the biggest, if not the biggest star in WWE today. Asuka has not made an appearance on WWE TV since the 2021 WWE Money In The Bank Event back in July and that was the only time she competed in front of a full capacity crowd since March of 2020.
Fightful Select reports that there are plans of having Asuka make her WWE return as soon as tonight's WWE RAW and to place her in a “short-term program” with Becky Lynch. The report also states that both the talent and creative have had numerous pitches of how to bring Asuka back. WWE officials even told Fightful back in February that they expected Asuka to make her return sometime in the Spring and that they were looking forward to her return.
