• Backstage News On Asuka’s Status Ahead Of SummerSlam 2021
Former RAW Women’s Champion Asuka hasn’t been seen on WWE TV for a while now and fans have been wondering what’s going on.
According to the Wrestling Observer, WWE doesn’t have any creative plans for Asuka right now:
“For those asking about Asuka, she is fine. She’s just not being used for anything right now. She was at the RAW tapings but left early since she wasn’t being used.”
Asuka won’t be a part of tonight’s SummerSlam 2021 pay-per-view.
Last year at SummerSlam, Asuka was a part of 2 Title matches. She first lost to Bayley in a SmackDown Women’s Championship match. Later in the night, she beat Sasha Banks to win the RAW Women’s Championship.
