The undefeated streak of Asuka continued on Saturday night … though, according to WWE, she didn’t leave the match completely unscathed.
WWE.com reports that the NXT Women’s Champion suffered a broken right collarbone during her match with Ember Moon at NXT Takeover: Brooklyn III.
Dr. Jeffery Westerfield spoke of the injury, saying, “During the match, she landed awkwardly from a throw from Ember Moon and was able to complete the match, but had notable pain and discomfort.”
Westerfield said that they then conducted an ultrasound backstage and an x-ray confirmed the injury.
While no time table has been revealed for Asuka’s return yet, Westerfield noted that the usual recovery time for that type of injury is 6-8 weeks.
