During tonight’s NXT TV tapings at Full Sail University, Asuka officially vacated the NXT Women’s Championship according to an article on

In a segment that is expected to air next week on the WWE Network, Asuka relinquished her championship to NXT GM William Regal. Regal stated in the segment that he will start negotiations to bring her to the main roster on either RAW or Smackdown Live.

Paul “Triple H” Levesque, along with the NXT roster, were part of the segment in what is expected to be her NXT farewell. It was reported earlier this week that Asuka suffered a broken right collarbone during her match at NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn III, which is likely the reason for her suddenly vacating the championship at the tapings.


  1. There goes the greatest NXT Women’s Champion of all time. I don’t expect her to be undefeated like she was at NXT,but I hope they at least give her a dominate push on the main roster.

  2. Sucks it had to end this way; I would have killed to see her finally drop the title to Kairi Sane before leaving. Asuka’s been the main reason I’ve watched NXT lately, she’s going to leave a huge gap.

  3. One of the absolute best pushes and title runs in WWE in the past 20 years. What an amazing athlete and performer.
