Asuka took to Twitter today to tell her fans that she finally got knew teeth after she had a tooth knocked out a few months ago. For those of you that may not remember, her tooth was knocked out back in February during a match with Shayna Baszler.
Another thing that stuck out in her photo post was that she is wearing a sling on her left arm. This would explain why she hasn’t been on WWE TV since July. Her last match was on 7/17 at the Money In The Bank pay-per-view. Asuka was part of the women’s MITB ladder match with Nikki A.S.H., Alexa Bliss, Liv Morgan, Naomi, Natalya, Tamina, and Zelina Vega. We don’t know if the injury occurred in that match or elsewhere.
Asuka recently took to Twitter to dispute reports that claimed that she was fine and she was out simply because creative did not have anything for her. She tweeted, “Nothing has been revealed. That information is totally wrong. Really different. Completely different. Everything is different. I would like to ask the information provider. Don’t make a fake story.”
In another tweet, she stated, “The informant of my news has never met or spoken to me or is a liar.”
We wish her well and hope for a speedy and full recovery.
I finally got new teeth! It took 6 months since I lost my teeth😬
