WWE officials could be planning a big title change soon.

As seen on this week’s episode of Monday Night Raw in Miami, FL at the AmericanAirlines Arena on the USA Network, current Raw Women’s Champion Alexa Bliss lost to Asuka in a non-title match.

There have been reports about WWE Chairman Vince McMahon considering booking Asuka against former UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey at WrestleMania 34.

WrestleMania 34 is set to be held on April 8, 2018, at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans, Louisiana.

This event airs on pay-per-view (PPV) and WWE Network and is the most successful and longest-running professional wrestling event in history. Both Raw and SmackDown rosters will be featured on the card.

Dave Meltzer speculated on the latest edition of the Wrestling Observer Radio that WWE officials could be putting the Raw Women’s Title on Asuka before the Royal Rumble.

He would go on to explain that if they did put the title on Asuka before this event then she wouldn’t have to compete in the first-ever women’s Royal Rumble match. Then, WWE would book Bliss against Asuka in a rematch for the title at this show.

Asuka began her professional wrestling career back in 2004 before beginning to do work for Pro Wrestling Wave in 2008. She also did work for promotions such as Smash, Wrestling New Classic, Reina Joshi Puroresu, and many other promotions.

Asuka finally signed with WWE in 2015 and was sent to developmental in NXT. In April of last year at NXT TakeOver: Dallas Asuka defeated Bayley to win the NXT Women's Championship.
She continued to dominate her opponents in NXT and extended her vicious undefeated streak to over 500 days.

She recently successfully defended her strap against Ember Moon at NXT TakeOver III: Brooklyn, however, she suffered an injury during the match which forced her to relinquish her title.

This is when the sports entertainment company made the decision to call her up to the main event roster and place her on the flagship show of the company, Monday Night Raw. She made her main roster debut at the WWE TLC pay-per-view event at the Target Center in Minnesota, Minneapolis on the WWE Network by beating Emma in a singles match.

Bliss signed with WWE back in 2013 and was sent to its developmental territory of NXT. Bliss remained in NXT for three years to learn the ropes of the business before making her main roster debut in 2016 when she was drafted to SmackDown Live via the WWE Draft.

She would go on to defeat Becky Lynch for the SmackDown Live Women's Championship before dropping it to Naomi at WrestleMania 33.

She was then sent to Monday Night RAW via the Superstar Shake-Up. Bliss was immediately thrusted into a program with RAW Women's Champion Bayely, which Bliss would win and capture the title herself.
