WWE News: Asuka Relinquishes her NXT Championship, Officially
The speculations were there of Asuka possibly ending her championship reign after suffering an injury during the NXT Takeover event, last week.
She featured in a title match against Ember Moon which turned out to be the shoe-stealer of the night. But, Asuka’s collarbone was damaged to a severe extent by a nasty throw from her opponent.
Being a fighting champion, she was able to finish the title match but was in pain. The WWE medical personnel addressed her condition once the contest was over and declared that due to the concussions suffered in the match, she would not be able to perform for a particular time span. It raised questions about Asuka’s never ending title reign that has crossed 500-day landmark.
