Asuka: “I Will Probably Go to Raw or SmackDown and Get Another Title”

NXT Women’s Champion Asuka recently spoke to Newsweek to promote her upcoming title defense at “NXT Takeover: Brooklyn III” against Ember Moon. She discussed a number of topics, including her time in NXT and plans for the future.

Below are some questions along with Asuka’s answers:

On her time in NXT:

“When I decided to sign a contract with WWE, I decided two things,” Asuka tells Newsweek, speaking through a translator. “I was determined not only to win, but to leave [breaking] records. That is something I feel like I can do as a return to WWE [for hiring me].”

On moving from Japan to America:

“It was my first time living in the U.S., but they were so supportive,” she says. “The language was a big wall for me…I’m still struggling. Driving is an issue. When I was in Japan, I didn’t have to drive all the time, but here in Florida, you have to drive all the time. But American people are very friendly, cheerful and kind to me. So I’m really thankful to the American people.”

On her future plans:

“I’m going to go to TakeOver and beat Ember Moon and keep my title. Then I will probably go to Raw or SmackDown and get another title.”

Triple H also discusses Asuka’s impact on the company throughout the interview.
