Asuka's return is still a long way off

In the last period, several WWE Superstars have been absent from the rings of the company, some to fix some personal problems, some to fix problems related to an injury or muscle fatigue and some to undergo real surgical operations, foreseen by time, especially in the women's sector of the company.

In recent weeks, we have seen Alexa Bliss return to the scene, multiple-time champion of the WWE main roster, who had had to be absent just to fix a problem with her nose, with a surgical operation that the athlete had been planning for some time.

In addition to the former adept of Bray Wyatt and Fiend, several other colleagues have absented themselves from the rings, such as Asuka or Bayley, both very important former champions of the main roster of the McMahon-owned company.

After seeing the sensational return of Ronda Rousey in the company's Royal Rumble, complete with a final victory for her, fans are anxiously awaiting the return of the Role Model, of the Japanese of Raw and also of the former marine, Lacey Evans, also it future re-entry after the last pregnancy.

Latest news on Asuka

In a previous social media post, Asuka let fans know that she finally got her tooth replaced after it was knocked out a few months back. During a match against Shayna Baszler, Asuka's tooth was knocked out on an episode of RAW.

In the tweet, Asuka was also seen wearing an arm sling. It means that The Empress of Tomorrow is still nursing her injury, despite no official report suggesting that the former RAW Women's Champion is indeed injured. According to what was reported in the last hours by the journalists of the Fightful Select from overseas, it would seem that the return of the Japanese is still far enough, given the general conditions of the athlete that would not allow her to return to appear in the company's rings in a short time.

If initially the plans for her were to return directly to the Royal Rumble, then discarded due to a physical problem not yet resolved at the time, now there would be no plans for a return at all, at least not in the short term.

In the latest update reported by Select, in fact: "At the end of February, Asuka was placed on the Inactive WWE Superstar list, from which wrestlers like Xavier Woods have been removed, although she does not yet appear in the federation programs.

A WWE source has indicated that Asuka's return around spring is optimistic and another has confirmed that there are still no creative plans ready for her because she is not yet available for her return."
