• Possible Date For Ronda Rousey Ending Asuka’s Undefeated Streak
According to Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer, WWE is planning to end Asuka’s undefeated streak at the hands of former UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion, “Rowdy” Ronda Rousey.
However, this isn’t expected to happen at WrestleMania 34 as Ronda is currently planned to be in mixed tag team match at WrestleMania 34 and Asuka will challenge one of the current Women’s Champions.
Speaking of Asuka facing a Women’s Champion at WrestleMania 34, she isn’t expected to make her decision before Elimination Chamber 2018 PPV as Alexa Bliss will defend her Raw Women’s Championship in the first ever Elimination Chamber match.
Current plan is for Asuka to challenge Charlotte Flair for the SmackDown Women’s Championship at WrestleMania 34.
Speaking of Ronda ending Asuka’s undefeated streak, it is expected to happen later this year at either SummerSlam 2018 or Survivor Series 2018. We’ll keep you updated if anything changes.
