Asuka may be one of the best wrestlers in WWE, male or female. William Regal himself declared her as possibly the greatest signing in WWE history and though she may not have been a top-level superstar in Japan, her talent was recognized in WWE.

You’ll find Asuka’s matches characterized by stiff strikes, submission-based maneuvers and rapid pacing. She’s a history maker and trailblazer in every sense of the word.
