It comes as no surprise that Asuka comes to the main roster with a massive reputation, all based on the fact that she never lost on NXT during her historic run as the Women's Champion where she laid waste to every challenger that stepped up to the throne.
After vacating the championship, there's a scramble on NXT to see who can pick up where she left off, with The Empress of Tomorrow announcing her arrival at TLC where she defeated the now-departed Emma.
She broke many records on her way to Monday Night RAW, but a section of fans are already complaining that she hasn't been booked to her strongest yet. The main reason for that is she hasn't dominated her opponents on the red brand like she had on NXT.

Although, it's clear that the unbeaten run is going to come to an end at some point, so perhaps toning down the dominance slightly is a good decision to make. One plan that's reportedly in the works in the coming months is a feud between Asuka and Sasha Banks, but the next major platform we might see Asuka perform on is the historic Survivor Series event.
According to Dirty Sheets, including Asuka in the RAW vs. SmackDown LIVE women's match is a big matter of debate amongst WWE officials.
This is because nobody wants to book her to lose, even by disqualification, and it makes sense because this would be a very cheap loss in a multi-person match.
However, the source is also claiming that people backstage are being cautious about excluding her from the match entirely because she might be seen as unimportant if she;s taken out, and that's not something WWE officials want to do.
Unbeaten runs do end up causing booking headaches, and this is a perfect example of that. At this point, the best course of action could be to either book her in her own RAW vs. SmackDown LIVE match where she can win.
Or, if she's going to be in the multi-woman match, then making her the sole survivor and making SmackDown LIVE suffer the loss is the best way to keep her looking strong.
It looks like WWE could have a big decision on their hands, as the tiniest error could derail her push in its early days on the main roster.
