If you are wondering why WWE has not outright said that Asuka will be challenging Alexa Bliss for the Raw Women’s Championship at WrestleMania, that is because they have other plans for Asuka.
Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter reported on Monday that the plan has always been for Asuka to challenge Charlotte Flair for the Smackdown Women’s Championship at WrestleMania.
On the Raw side for the women, it looks they are setting up Bayley vs. Sasha Banks and Alexa Bliss defending the Raw Women’s Championship against Nia Jax. Perhaps, Mickie James will be in that match as well.
