Becky Lynch, Asuka and The Iconics In-Ring Segment: 

In two short weeks, Becky Lynch gets the opportunity to take back her title. This is the same title she got the whole world talking about. Where is it now? The whole roster things that what she is doing is a fluke.They think getting the world to listen, connecting with the fans, main eventing, and being the man is easy, but they see how hard it is. Everyone is trying to be a badass since she broke through. Asuka is finding out how hard it is to lead this division.

There are those who tried to discredit her and say that she is hype. She delivers on everything she says every single time.

The invincible Asuka was not able to beat the woman that Becky has defeated all over the world for five months and Asuka is asking if Becky is ready.

Asuka comes out to interrupt Becky. Becky is a bee without sting. After the Royal Rumble Becky will not be in Charlotte’s shadow. However, she will be in Asuka’s shadow.
