Asuka is the Smackdown Women’s Champion and she is always ready for a fight. However, it is a question as to who will be her next challenger.
Bryan Alvarez explained on Filthy Four Daily, that WWE needs to determine the next challenger for Asuka’s title before the Royal Rumble.
“Here’s the thing. They’re going to do a mult-person match where the winner gets Asuka. Because you can’t do a multi-person match at the pay-per-view because you also have to have a Women’s Royal Rumble with thirty women so you can’t really waste a bunch of women on a multi-person match.”
It’s uncertain whether the title will even be defended this year. Both the RAW and Smackdown Women’s titles were not defended at last year’s Royal Rumble either. So we will have to wait and see what WWE does.
