Turning to the dark side, she embraced a ruthless persona and set her sights on her adversary. The stage was prepared for an exciting competition between two determined rivals.
In a moment of sheer brilliance, Asuka utilized her infamous mist to gain the upper hand in the championship bout. While unable to directly spray Belair, she cleverly adjusted her strategy. Capitalizing on the opportunity, Asuka unleashed a barrage of kicks to Belair’s head, sealing her victory and capturing the RAW Women’s Title. The impact of those kicks echoed through the arena, signifying a changing of the guard and the crowning of a new champion.
With her victory, Asuka wins the RAW Women’s Championship for the third time, further establishing her place among the competition’s most decorated athletes. Tied with Alexa Bliss for total reigns, she now stands only behind the legendary Charlotte Flair and the former Sasha Banks.
