Asuka has been off WWE TV since last summer with an injury. However, it was recently reported by PWInsider that Asuka was now only simply waiting for creative and that creative had nothing for her yet.
However, Sean Ross Sapp of Fightful Select has been asked about Asuka a lot recently and he had this to report:
“As of February, Asuka was still listed on internal WWE inactive lists, while wrestlers like Xavier Woods were removed from it, even though he still hasn’t appeared on programming. One WWE source indicated that the optimistic return is “around Spring” for Asuka, and another said that no creative has been cooked up for her because she’s not available as of yet.
Top talent in the company tell us they’d not heard an update on Asuka in quite a while.
