AJ Styles is probably another rare exception to this list; having been an IMPACT Wrestling original and then moving to NJPW for most of his career. Wrestlers such as Bobby Roode, Shinsuke Nakamura, and many more have failed to receive or maintain main event status. They have entrusted Asuka to give amazing matches with all the Four Horsewomen.

Asuka has been one of the most reliable workers for WWE over the years. Be it in tag team action or even as a singles wrestler. Becky Lynch, who has been the breakout performer and carried the company for the better part of 2019 and the start of 2020, handed over her title to Asuka. The belief WWE has shown in her is tremendous.

She recently took to Twitter to post about receiving new teeth and thanked her doctor for the success. A peculiarity that the fans noticed was that Asuka was seen wearing a cast on her left arm. This might have answered most of our fan questions regarding the whereabouts of Asuka. She was last seen at the Money in the Bank PPV in late July. Since then she has missed both house shows and TV taping.

Reports were rife that she was absent, as creative had nothing for her. Asuka refuted this herself publicly. Now, it seems the reason is an unfortunate injury. We as fans hope she can make her comeback sooner than later with a new crop of female wrestlers entering the company. This would allow for many fresh feuds and matches for Asuka.
