Emma is now going to have the match of her life at TLC!
What is the story?
Asuka took to Twitter to comment on the opponent she’s going to face on her most important roster debut at TLC. Emma won the Fatal 5-way match for the right to face Asuka on this week’s edition of Raw after defeating Sasha Banks, Bayley, Alicia Fox and Dana Brooke Fatal 5-way match.

In case you did not know…
In her debut on NXT, Asuka was confronted by Emma and Dana Brooke. She had a feud with each of them, and this resulted in her finally dealing with Emma at NXT TakeOver: London after she had defeated Brooke.
She emerged victorious and went on to feud with Bayley to win her NXT Women‘s Championship.
The center of the matter
Asuka went on Twitter to express her pleasure of dealing with Emma upon her debut and warned the Raw star to be prepared for her.
Asuka’s debut match on the main roster can be with the same lady who confronted her when she debuted on NXT.
Emma replied again and said that it would be her who will finish Asuka’s streak, at TLC. She claimed that it was only because of her that Asuka was so successful.

Asuka is at the moment the holder of the record for the longest reigning women‘s champion after she passed the earlier record set by Rockin’ Robin’s 502-day championship reign. She can also be the record holder for the longest winning streak, surpassing Goldberg.
What is next?
Asuka is ready to take on Emma when she debuts at TLC in two weeks time.
WWE TLC: Tables, Ladders & Chairs PPV will happen on October 22, 2017, on the Target Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
WWE has not all the time managed to guide NXT talent effectively when they debut on the main roster, with a number of stars being underbooked. Asuka was probably the most dominant women on NXT for a very long time, and her debut match on the main roster has received a lot of hype.
There’s a small chance the Emma could pull off an upset victory, however at this point, it appears unlikely.
