Top WWE Star Forced To Take Break From The Ring


One top WWE star has commented on the injury that has forced them to take a break from the ring for now.

Damage CTRL announced Asuka was suffering from an injury and would be forced to withdraw from the Queen of the Ring tournament. Dakota Kai was announced as Asuka’s replacement and she went on to face Lyra Valkyria in a match won by the former NXT Women’s Champion.

Asuka was last in action at Backlash France where she and Kairi Sane lost the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championship to Bianca Belair and Jade Cargill. That win saw Jade Cargill pick up the first gold in her WWE career.

WWE’s Asuka Breaks Silence On Knee Injury

Now on her YouTube channel, Asuka has released a new video where she wrote a message to fans confirming her knee injury:

After the Backlash of my European tour, I had to take a break to treat my knee that I had been hurting for a while. My partners Kairi and Dakota helped me a lot during this tour as I could not move at my best. I am very grateful to both of them.

The video ended with the words “See you soon” perhaps indicating that the star is not set for a lengthy layoff from the ring.
