Asuka would love to have another run with the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championships, but she needs a partner to make that happen.
The Empress of Tomorrow has held these titles with Charlotte Flair and Kairi Sane at different times in her career. After the announcement of a tournament for the vacant titles, it looks like the Japanese star is planning to claim them again.
The RAW Superstar took to social media over the weekend to let the WWE Universe know that she will once again hold the Women’s Tag Team Titles, but wants to know where her partner is:
“I’ll be the Tag Team Champion again!!!! Where’s my partner? *face with peeking emoji*”, Asuka said in a tweet.
This tweet turned into a back-and-forth exchange between Asuka and her former Kabuki Warriors tag team partner Kairi Sane. When asked where she was, Sane tweeted:
“I… I’m here! *face emoji with spiral eyes* *star emoji* *hand emoji* *SOS emoji*”
Unfortunately for The Empress, Kairi is no longer with WWE. After spending much of 2021 as the company’s ambassador in Japan, the former NXT Women’s Champion parted ways with WWE in December. Earlier this year, she joined her home promotion, World Wonder Ring Stardom.
Who will Asuka find as a partner on her team?
With Kairi Sane seemingly tied to Stardom and Charlotte Flair absent from WWE’s lineup since WrestleMania Backlash, it looks like Asuka will have to find a new partner if she wants another shot at the tag titles.
Last week on WWE RAW, common ground was found between The Empress of Tomorrow and Alexa Bliss as they were attacked by Bayley’s new stable at the end of their match.
They also dated later on the show to help even the odds for RAW Women’s Champion Bianca Belair. If the Japanese star wants to participate in this tournament, perhaps his best move will be none other than Little Miss Bliss.
What do you think of the exchange between The Kabuki Warriors? Is there a chance Kairi Sane will return to WWE? Let us know your thoughts by making a sound in the comments section below.
