Asuka gets a new title belt, former champ returns and makes a challenge

On Friday night’s WWE SmackDown, Adam Pearce presented Raw Women’s Champion Asuka with a brand new Women’s Title Belt.

During the presentation, former Raw and SmackDown Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair’s music hit as she made her return. Flair then challenged Asuka for the title and sent her out of the ring with kick as she avoided Asuka’s blue mist.

Flair was last seen on WWE television at WrestleMania Night One, when she lost the SmackDown Women’s Championship to Rhea Ripley.
