Becky Lynch might be “The Man,” but Asuka is officially the new Smackdown Women’s Champion after defeating both Lynch and Charlotte Flair at TLC.
After an incredible TLC match at the pay-per-view of the same name, Asuka climbed the rungs and secured her first championship on the main roster since leaving NXT in September of 2017.
The match looked like it was coming down to just Charlotte and Becky … but as they were fighting on top of the ladder a surprise Ronda Rousey run-in occurred and she pushed them off.
This paved the way for Asuka to climb the ladder uninterrupted and become the new champ.
Excited about Asuka’s first main roster championship? Let us know in the comments!
