Asuka made a surprise return to Raw on the April 25th episode of the WWE flagship show.
The former Raw Women’s Champion would interrupt Becky Lynch’s promo, who was also making a return to WWE after losing at WrestleMania. Lynch was stating that she would be the champion again and no one would be able to stop her. As the former champion was listing off all the potential opponents, Asuka’s entrance music would hit.
The Empress of Tomorrow would smile and greet Becky Lynch, stating that she would be the one to stop The Man, and would then chase Becky from outside of the ring.
Asuka was last seen inside a WWE ring at the 2021 Money in the Bank Premium Live Event. the former champion would take part in the ladder match of the same name, but was unsuccessful in capturing the briefcase. Asuka has previously won the Money in the Bank ladder match back in 2020. However, instead of winning a contract, Asuka won the title due to Becky Lynch vacating the championship and shortly after announcing that she was pregnant with her first child. Becky referenced this on social media following the return, not being happy with the confrontation by Asuka.
