4. Asuka

Asuka has the tendency to light up every wrestling arena that she steps foot in, and it is safe to say that many superstars see her as the woman to beat. This comes partly from the fact that Asuka is the current Raw Women’s Champion, a title she rightfully earned after beating five other women at the Money in the Bank ladder match. This also comes from the fact that Asuka had an impressive undefeated streak for nearly two and a half years until it was ended by The Queen, Charlotte Flair, at WrestleMania 34.

Whatever the case, Asuka is still the woman to beat. For the first few months of the year, Asuka held WWE Women’s Tag Team Gold alongside her partner Kairi Sane. As of now, these two women hold the longest reign with the tag team belts at 180 days.

While The Kabuki Warriors did end up losing the titles to Alexa Bliss and Nikki Cross at WrestleMania 36, it didn’t take long for Asuka to get back up on her feet and go after more gold. This time her eyes were set on the prize of the WWE Raw Women’s Championship and man oh man did she blindly hit the bullseye!

Typically the individual who wins a Money in the Bank ladder match wins a contract to a title match of the winner’s choosing, that can be cashed in any time and anywhere. Fortunately for Asuka, the stakes were a little higher at this past MITB as the WWE Universe would later find out that the winner of this year’s MITB ladder match actually won the Raw Women’s Title, because Becky had to relinquish the belt as she discovered she was expecting her first child.

Asuka is notorious for putting on an amazing performance which is exactly why she is one of the top five women in WWE currently. Month after month, and opponent after opponent Asuka has given each match her all, and has generally come out the victor.

As the current Raw Women’s Champion, Asuka has a massive target on her back, and Sasha Banks is taking steady aim as the two women are scheduled to face off for the gold at Extreme Rules on July 19, 2020.

Will Asuka once again show the WWE Universe why she is the Empress of Tomorrow or will The Boss, The Blueprint, Sasha Banks take her rightful throne as a double champion alongside her best friend and current SmackDown Women’s Champion, Bayley?

Only time will tell, however, one thing that time has already told time and time again is that Asuka is a force to be reckoned with and is leaving her mark in the WWE as one of the top five women in WWE.
