Asuka remains undefeated in her WWE call up as she pinned Nia Jax. In doing so, Asuka prevented Jax’s hopes of getting into the Raw women’s main event for the belt at WrestleMania. Earlier on in the match, Jax was close to taking the match as she laid to waste Asuka with a Samoan Drop. Asuka will now face Alexa Bliss who retained her women’s belt in the first-ever women’s Elimination Chamber match.

Asuka is easily one of THE BEST in ring performers of all time. Man or women she’s definitely up there along side Aj Styles #WWEChamber

The streak remains and (hopefully) Asuka will face Alexa at Wrestlemania One on One. If WWE is smart and keeps the match that way, it will set the world on fire. #WWEChamber

I’m still team Nia, all the way. Not sure how she hasn’t won a title yet. #WWEChamber

At WWE Elimination Chamber, the undefeated Asuka will battle Nia Jax in a one-on-one showdown. If The Irresistible Force can manage to overcome her opponent’s unbeaten streak, she will earn the right to be part of the Raw Women’s Championship Match at WrestleMania.
This is not the first time the two Superstars have clashed. On the January 15 edition of Monday Night Raw, The Empress of Tomorrow went to war with Jax in a showdown that ending after Asuka trapped her opponent’s leg between the ring post and the ring steps, and an injured Nia was unable to continue, giving Asuka the victory.
Raw General Manager Kurt Angle’s announcement of the highly-anticipated rematch is nothing if not intriguing. Though Asuka likes to have a good time in the squared circle, she has shown time and again that she is no joke. However, after suffering a painful end at their last one-on-one meeting, Nia will surely stop at nothing to get retribution on the 2018 Women’s Royal Rumble Match winner, especially with an opportunity to step onto The Grandest Stage of Them All.
