UPDATE: Apparently the injury is purely storyline.


Shayna Baszler was supposed to face former WWE SmackDown Women’s Champion Asuka on RAW tonight but that won’t be happening.

WWE.com is reporting that Asuka is injured and has a sprained wrist. As a result, she’s out of the match tonight. Replacing her will be her WWE Women’s Tag Team Champion partner, Kairi Sane. So, the Kabuki Warriors will still be represented in the match prior to WWE Elimination Chamber this Sunday.

This is a more familiar foe for Baszler as she faced Sane many times in NXT.
