Could Asuka Be Headed To The WWE Main Roster Soon?

NXT is full of the superstars of tomorrow, but Asuka seems to be out of place at this point. But let’s be honest, The Empress Of Tomorrow was ready for the main roster before she even stepped foot into Full Sail. But if there’s ever a time to pull the trigger on Asuka it’s got to happen soon because she seems to just be wasting her time in developmental at this point.

Asuka has been running roughshod over the NXT Women’s Division and has no signs of slowing down. She holds a record of not only owning the NXT Women’s Championship for the longest reign, but she has an undefeated streak that would be ridiculous to surpass.

At this point there’s no real reason why Asuka isn’t on the main roster yet. On a recent episode of Wrestling Observer Live Bryan Alavrez speculated Asuka might be on the main roster by SummerSlam. He elaborated a little when he said Ember Moon is probably going to beat Asuka ending her undefeated streak and claiming the NXT Women’s Championship at TakeOver: Brooklyn. But it wouldn’t be a big surprise to see Asuka pop up to the main roster soon after that. After all, she’s already working been house shows with the main roster.

The Raw Women’s Division could really use someone like Asuka right now. For some reason they’ve gotten stale in spite of having great talent like Alexa Bliss, Sasha Banks, Bayley, and Mickie James.

It’s interesting to note Asuka wasn’t even signed to a contract that included the possibility of a main roster run. She was just supposed to come in to NXT and work there. But with her amazing popularity there is really no reason to keep her in NXT anymore.

Could we be seeing Asuka on the main roster sooner than later? Only time will tell on that one, but one thing’s for sure WWE needs to figure out something to do with Raw’s Women’s Division until then.
