Last night, we got a tip from a WWE source telling us that Asuka’s match for SummerSlam will be decided on in the next few days.
It turns out that she is now being advertised locally in Orlando for a match on Tuesday night against Smackdown Women’s Champion Carmella. I would expect for WWE to announce this match on their website sometime in the next few days unless Vince McMahon decides to change his mind at the last minute.
If the match happens on Tuesday night then it could be how Asuka gets into the Smackdown Women’s Championship match at SummerSlam. Currently, it’s a Triple Threat Match featuring Carmella defending against Becky Lynch and Charlotte Flair.
They already have the built-in excuse that she deserves the shot because she would have won the match at Extreme Rules if it wasn’t for James Ellsworth’s shenanigans.
