On last week’s WWE SmackDown, RAW Women’s Champion Bianca Belair got a big pyro celebration for becoming the longest reigning Women’s Champion of the modern era. She’s been the champion for over 400 days now.
The returning Asuka interrupted Bianca’s celebration. This was Asuka’s first appearance on WWE TV since losing to Bianca at WrestleMania 39.
Asuka offered a handshake and then spit the mist in Bianca’s face. Asuka was teasing a heel turn for a while now, and she completed that turn with this move.
WWE has now officially announced Bianca vs. Asuka for the Title at Night Of Champions 2023.
