In an interview with ET Canada, Asuka revealed that she wanted to face ‘The Game‘ Triple H, ‘Nature Boy’ Ric Flair, and Ronda Rousey. In the interview she said,

“I want to wrestle with Triple H and Ric Flair. I fought many great WWE superstars. Oh, [I want to wrestle] Ronda Rousey. One day!”

Asuka has traded shots with just about every woman in the WWE. She will face off against the current WWE Raw Women’s champion, Rhea Ripley, for the championship.

The pay-per-view is scheduled for May 16 at WWE WrestleMania Backlash. The match is a triple threat, which includes Rhea Ripley, Asuka, and Charlotte Flair.

Asuka concluded the interview with the message – “People all over the world are watching WWE. My goal in WWE is to get more people to know me. I want to share the wonderful cultures of Japanese and Asians as an Asian.”

Asuka explains the importance of sharing culture

During the interview, Asuka also shared some of her favorite parts about her culture, such as anime and cuisine. She described that the graphics are beautiful, and the sound is good, along with marvelous stories.

She added that she is always watching anime and movies. ‘The Empress of Tomorrow’ also disclosed her love for American dramas. Furthermore, she emphasized the importance of sharing and respecting each other’s cultures.

“You must try sukiyaki. Sukiyaki is so delicious! It’s sliced beef and soy sauce and sugar and tofu, vegetables. Oh! So good! Please watch my YouTube channel. I show you,” she continued.

Becky and Asuka embrace, following the announcement.

We totally agree with Asuka that the world would be a better place to live if we could just forget our differences for once. It delights the fans to see WWE having such a vast multicultural roster with no sign of discrimination when it comes to wrestling. WWE has done an outstanding job so far and is showing no signs of stopping.
