After winning the Smackdown Women’s title at WWE TLC, Asuka was interviewed by Tokyo Sports, when WWE visited Fresno, California for TV this week.
While she is a former NXT Champion, it was the first time that The Empress of Tomorrow had won gold on the main roster. Vince McMahon’s reaction to her title win made it all the more memorable.
Asuka revealed in the interview that McMahon congratulated her backstage after the match had ended. He would then hug her and thanked her for the match, telling her that he was happy for her.
Asuka also revealed what her next goal is. She said she was elated to end the year as a champion, becoming the top female superstar on the Smackdown roster and added that she looks forward to defending her championship at Wrestlemania 35.
When asked who she wants as her opponent at Wrestlemania 35, with Tokyo Sports even mentioning Ronda Rousey, Asuka claimed she wanted to fight anyone and everyone, and simply wanted a challenging match.
Asuka also revealed in her interview that one of her main goals in WWE is to show the world the diverse female talent the industry has to offer. In order to ensure everyone looks good, she is willing to push them to their limits.
