• SmackDown Star Not Being Pushed Because Of Poor English Speaking Skills?

According to PWInsider, Asuka’s poor English speaking skills is one of the reasons why she hasn’t been pushed by WWE for a while now.

It was noted how Vince McMahon wants his top stars to be able to work the mic, but Asuka obviously has difficulty doing it because of the language barrier.

Asuka was quite possibly the #1 female wrestler in the company at the start of 2018.

She won the inaugural Women’s Royal Rumble match earlier this year and decided to switch brands to face Charlotte Flair for the SmackDown Women’s Championship at WrestleMania 34.

However, Asuka’s plan backfired as Charlotte defeated her and ended her undefeated run in the company.

Ever since her streak broke, Asuka hasn’t been the same and has become just another wrestler on SmackDown.
