Rhea Ripley was ready for Asuka.
At WWE WrestleMania 37 Night Two, “The Nightmare” defeated “The Empress of Tomorrow” to win the WWE RAW Women’s Championship.
Asuka started the match by hitting Ripley with a flurry of strikes. She maintained the upper hand, and it seemed like she caught Ripley unprepared. But “The Nightmare” fired back with a kick and a suplex. She continued to overpower the champion, but Asuka gained some breathing room with a missile dropkick.
Asuka floored Ripley with a DDT from the apron to the floor, and the high-impact move helped her take control. But “The Nightmare” overwhelmed Asuka by stomping her repeatedly. Asuka fought valiantly, but she was unable to kick out of the Riptide, so Ripley won the championship.
You're not dreaming. You're having a NIGHTMARE! 👹
