Ember Moon and Asuka had one of the best rivalries in NXT history. Asuka remained undefeated in WWE through her run with the developmental brand, however, Moon came closer than anyone to finally beating “The Empress Of Tomorrow.” Of course, Asuka’s undefeated streak came to an end at WrestleMania 34 when she was defeated by Charlotte Flair.
After winning the first-ever Women’s Royal Rumble, Asuka unsuccessfully challenged the then-SmackDown Live Women’s Champion. Now, Moon has found her way onto WWE’s main roster as a member of the Raw brand. Asuka currently resides on SmackDown Live.
Now that both women are on the main roster, it will be interesting to see if WWE decides to rekindle their rivalry on a bigger stage. Speaking to Sky Sports’ “Lock Up Wrestling” podcast, Moon expressed her desire to get one more crack at beating Asuka, but this time on the main roster:
“My dream opponent would actually be Beth Phoenix but that is the ultimate dream but as far as Asuka goes she’s my biggest rival – I’ve said it time and time again. She’s on my list. I’d love another crack at her.
“I would love to have another match just to prove that I can beat her and to have another great rivalry with my best friend-worst enemy, but you know, it’s… it kind of stinks because we’re on different brands right now but who knows. Hopefully soon, I’ll see her in the Rumble. That would be great, hopefully.
“Like I said she’s one of my best friends, my worst enemies, but yeah I would love another crack at Asuka. Just throwing her over at the Evolution battle royal wasn’t enough for me.”
