• Frightening Footage Of Asuka Almost Injuring Her Neck At Recent WWE Live Event Released
As we noted before, SmackDown Women’s Champion Asuka had an injury scare during a match with Mandy Rose at a recent WWE Live Event.
The match ended in a no-contest and Asuka was helped to the back.
You can watch the frightening footage of Asuka almost injuring her neck below:
Thankfully, Asuka is doing fine now.
During a recent interview with Sport Talk, Mandy Rose addressed this incident and said the following:
“I was in my hometown, it was really great to be home. I had about 30 people – friends and family – there that were all front row. I had all my nieces and nephews and it was really amazing to have them all there. Of course, not everything always goes according to plan and accidents happen.
So, unfortunately, there was a little accident and we took the proper precautions and thankfully, Asuka is fine and she’s doing OK. You know, stuff happens. You can’t dwell on it, you just gotta move on.”
