Asuka On Possible Main Roster Call Up, Brand Preference: "Blue Or Red, I Will Be Ready"

Whenever she gets the call, be it from RAW or SmackDown, Asuka says she's ready.

The NXT Women's Champion has been in WWE's developmental brand NXT since 2015, and there has been no word regarding her graduating to WWE's main roster. On Saturday she defended her Championship successfully against Ember Moon at NXT Takeover: OrlandoWith Wrestlemania season passing through, several NXT wrestlers are speculated about regarding their placement within WWE. Speaking through a translator, the longest reigning and still undefeated champion told YouTube contributor Myles she has an idea of what her main roster debut will be like. She made reference to Smackdown Live Events she appeared on in March.

"I was worried about how the crowd would react at the Smackdown show, because I was at NXT for a long time, but the reaction was great. When I came out, the crowd went kind of loud. That was great to see and that gives me a taste of how it is going to be," said Asuka. 

Both brands have wrestlers that Asuka has faced before, she originally won her NXT Women's Championship off of Bayley who now holds the Women's Championship on Raw and she faced the women on the Smackdown roster in her Live Event experience. With her hair dyed Blue and Red, she was asked if she wanted to be on either Smackdown or Raw. Asuka said she does not care.

"I don't have a preference," said Asuka. "I think I can fit in, Blue or Red, I don't have a preference, I will be ready," she added. 

In the rest of the interview, she was asked about her match with Ember Moon and the experience of Wrestlemania 33 weekend.
