Asuka possibly might be out with an injury following an update on her social media. The former Women’s Champion recently uploaded a photo where her left arm is seen in a sling.
The photo shows the Empress of Tomorrow with Dr. Byron M Blasco, who has carried out successful dental surgery on the RAW star. Asuka suffered the injury during a tag team match on the February 22nd RAW, where Asuka teamed with Charlotte Flair to face Nia Jax and Shayna Baszler. A kick from Baszler to the mouth Asuka caused the dental injury.
Despite the mouth injury, Asuka was frequently competing on TV up until July 2021. The Empress’ last match was the Women’s Money in the Bank ladder match on the pay per view of the same name. The match was won by Nikki A.S.H.
At this time it is unknown what caused the arm injury or when Asuka is scheduled to return to TV.
Features of Wrestling will provide any updates when they become available.
