During the night, WWE aired one of its most followed PPVs of the whole year, the Royal Rumble that fans of the company really love madly. In the PPV card, there were obviously also the two real brawls, the male and the female one, which gave the members of the WWE Universe numerous great surprises.
This year, the Women's Royal Rumble took care of leaving the fans speechless, with several former WWE wrestlers who reappeared in the company's ring, such as Nia Jax or Chelsea Green, but there was also room for returns of some athletes who hadn't seen each other for some time, but who were still under contract.
One of these is definitely Asuka, who is back after weeks and weeks of absence, with a new facepaint, which reminds everyone of her old KANA character, which the wrestler had before arriving in WWE and a new theme song, the which left fans quite incredulous when they saw her enter.
In the end, despite the strong public response and despite her fantastic performance, Asuka entered with number 17, but came out as the penultimate elimination, with Ripley dominating the scene, then eliminating last Liv Morgan.
Asuka is mysterious
In the end, despite the great public response and despite her fantastic performance, Asuka entered with number 17, but came out as the penultimate elimination, with Ripley dominating the scene, finally eliminating Liv Morgan last.
In recent weeks, Asuka had left several clues online about a possible change to her gimmick in WWE, leaving various clues on social media, with quite cryptic photos and comments, which had left the Japanese WWE fans quite dumbfounded.
Asuka, who unlike Alexa Bliss had lost her qualifying match to try to go against Bianca Belair for the title, had decided to tease fans on social media by letting us guess that she too could have gone over to the dark side, as already done in past.
The Japanese had initially shared a WWE tweet asking who would win the Triple Threat a few weeks ago, replying: "I think everyone should choose someone besides me". In another retweet, sharing the same tweet, she instead wrote: “Two of them, except me!
You don't need me for this choice. I'm going to listen to MEGADETH and go to bed." Instead, in another post after the match, she wrote: “I don't want the respect. I never wanted to be respected. I am not interested. I'm going to go listen to the new Metallica song and go to bed,” before starting to share some photos of her former gimmick Kana, a very dark character.
