Asuka and Kairi Sane given new tag team name

At the SmackDown Live taping in London, England, Paige revealed the new tag team name for Kairi Sane and Asuka and the name appears to be inspired by someone long-time wrestling fans would recognize.

Going forward, Sane and Asuka will be known as The Kabuki Warriors. WWE likes to take names from pop culture or old wrestler names to come up with names for the current talent and this appears to be a mix between the PC game “Warrior Princess Asuka” and The Great Kabuki.

Kabuki was known to many American fans as the wrestler who sprayed mist in his opponent’s eyes during his 50+ years in the wrestling ring..

We’ll see if this name sticks or if Vince McMahon decides to call them the Kabuki Experience or something else ridiculous by next week.
