NXT Women's Champion; 2016 NXT Female Competitor of the Year
Asuka’s dominance is of historic proportions. Yet to be pinned or made to submit in NXT, The Empress of Tomorrow has been nothing short of unstoppable since her arrival in October 2015.
Marching to the ring in a traditional noh mask and kaleidoscopic battle gear and looking every bit the victor before the opening bell even rings, Asuka has trounced every Superstar thrown her way, from Nia Jax to Bayley (the latter of whom Asuka unseated as NXT Women’s Champion). All the while, the fierce Japanese Superstar has worn an intimidating smile on her face, seemingly finding joy in stretching out her overmatched challengers.
In May 2017, Asuka surpassed the 173-win milestone, breaking Goldberg’s record as the champion with the longest undefeated streak in WWE history. Though her legacy is already certain to live on in the history books, Asuka shows no signs of slowing down any time soon. It remains to be seen if anybody has an answer for The Empress of Tomorrow.
