Based Asuka Thread
> when will she take over NXT?
> WWE when?
She'll come up to the main roster pretty soon, I think. Not much for her on NXT. Then she can be presented with her new dancing karate kid gimmick.
I think there are legitimate reasons to keep her in developmental for a while. She has no real character, she isn't very good at performing for the camera and she's been having trouble adapting to a wwe-friendly ring style. Booking her as a strong mostly silent badass won't work every week and there's no way Vince would allow an Asian to be booked as strong anyway.
I look forward to seeing her being regulated to Nakamura's valet in 2 months.
I didn't realize that was such an unpopular opinion. I'd like to hear a synopsis of what her WWE character is because from my perspective all she's been is the strong foreigner that everyone's afraid of. I doesn't help that she's only been able to speak about 2 complete sentences over the last several months.
I actually think pairing her with Nakamura could lead to some pretty great things. Nakamura could also compensate for her weak English skills(I spoke with him back in October and he was fairly capable.).
Talking is pretty important, especially in WWE but not necessary. I wouldn't be praising Nakamura in that same post if I thought otherwise.
Saying she's vicious and spontaneous is barely a character in my opinion and I haven't seen any "hyper enthusiastic" traits from her other than her visually interesting gear.
At the very least these character traits alone wouldn't go over with the RAW audience and if that's as far as her character is going to go then she's probably best being an NXT lifer.
My only regret is that I didn't know Kana/Asuka before her Debut in NXT
like samoa joe, she probably has something closer to a main roster contract
nxt is still wwe and such the top of the mountain, and its supposed to become even more of its own brand and less of developmental in 2016 than it already is
being the top freelancer in joshi means jackshit, she wasnt even working the largest promotion
With the way things are going we need people like Enzo and Asuka in the main roster.
Its like people forgot wrestling is meant to be > fun
Kind and honourable until you disrespect her. She enjoys it when someone hits her, because she knows how fun it will be to destroy them.
She's basically a sadist and a masochist, and I don't mean that innsome kinky kind of way.
I get all that from her facial expressions. She may not be a good talker, but she portrays more with a look in the ring than some wrestlers do cutting an actual promo.
