31 Faces of Fear: Asuka

For the month of October, we are going to run through some of our favorite wrestlers that inspire fear in their competitors and fans alike.

No one is ready for Asuka.

She’s probably the most colorful performer on our list.  At first glance, Asuka seems like a strange addition to the list.  The former graphic designer and part-time wrestler made waves in Japan as Kana, winning numerous accolades along the way.  She showed up in NXT at the end of 2015 and began her reign of terror.

With her large robes and creepy mask and knowing smile, her entrance is intimidating to me and I’m just watching on the TV or in the stands.

She is the longest reigning champion in the modern WWE retiring undefeated.  The only woman that even got close to beating her is Nicki Cross. Check out highlights from their spectacular Last Woman Standing match that should have been the main event of an NXT Takeover.
