Asuka vacates her NXT title, will join WWE upon return from injury



A historic moment took place during last night’s NXT taping at Full Sail University. Undefeated NXT Women’s Champion, Asuka, relinquished her title to NXT GM William Regal after over 500 days of dominance.

Asuka suffered a broken collarbone at last Saturday’s NXT TakeOver event in Brooklyn in a victorious effort against Ember Moon that fans and critics alike deemed the match of the night. The show is currently a consensus frontrunner for WWENXT’s best event of the year.

WWE is reporting that Asuka’s reign will be recognized as ending on the day that her announcement airs, which will be on the September 6th episode of NXT on the WWE Network. Stay tuned for more on this breaking news and what it will mean for the NXT Women’s Division and the Mae Young Classic moving forward.
