Asuka’s WrestleMania 35 opponent was rumored to have been Charlotte Flair, but Flair has since been inserted in the WrestleMania 35 RAW Women’s Championship Match against Ronda Rousey, leading many to speculate on who Asuka’s WrestleMania opponent would be.
Dave Meltzer recently reported that Asuka’s WrestleMania 35 opponent was once slated to be main roster new comer Lacey Evans, but since then plans have changed and that the general consensus is that Asuka does not currently have an opponent.
Nikki Cross turned heel on the February 4th episode of RAW, as she teamed up with Alicia Fox to attack Bayley and Sasha Banks before their Elimination Chamber Qualifying Match. Could the turn be a precursor to a WrestleMania 35 feud with SmackDown Women’s Champion Asuka? Readers are encouraged to sound off in the comments section below.
