TLC is shaping up to be a great event and while the return of the Shield will be the biggest headline, the debut of former NXT Women's Champion Asuka will surely be up there.

The Undefeated Empress of Tomorrow was revealed to be joining the RAW brand during the No Mercy PPV and we are now less than two weeks away from her arrival.

Is anybody ready?

While Asuka has spent her entire time in NXT claiming that "nobody is ready for Asuka!", she has been proven right by holding onto the title longer than anyone could have expected.

Defeating superstars like Bayley, Nia Jax, Mickie James, Ember Moon and Nikki Cross, Asuka truly dominated NXT.

Now she is joining RAW and her first match will come at the TLC PPV in less than two weeks.

That led to the female superstars of RAW petitioning General Manager Kurt Angle for the right to face the Empress of Tomorrow on her debut.

Emma, Bayley, Sasha Banks, Alicia Fox and Dana Brooke all pleaded their case to Angle, who made a fatal 5-way match to determine Asuka's opponent for TLC.

A shock result saw Emma come out on top on Monday night and earn the right to face Asuka at TLC.

In what is likely to be a win for the former NXT Women's Champion, Asuka's debut will be against one of the more interesting women on the RAW roster.

Bayley has previously put on a very interesting match with Asuka and Sasha Banks will be one of the names that fans hope to see Asuka clash with eventually, but for now, fans will watch Emma take on RAW's newest arrival at TLC.

Asuka was however undefeated during his lengthy spell in NXT so it will be very interesting to see how long until a title chance comes her way, should she keep up that level of performance.

No place at TLC?

While Emma will get her chance against Asuka, Mickie James will be challenging Alexa Bliss for the RAW Women's Championship at TLC.

Meaning that there is currently a strong chance of both Sasha Banks and Bayley being left off of the card.

That would be a huge blow and one that neither Banks or Bayley will want given the arrival of a superstar like Asuka.
