Becky Lynch and Asuka

WWE Raw Women’s Champion Asuka has revealed that she would love to face Becky Lynch after the Irish star’s pregnancy. The Man will transform into the Mum in December after announcing her and fiance Seth Rollins are expecting their first child in December.

 

 

That forced the Irish Lass Kicker, real name Rebecca Quin, to step away from the ring for the foreseeable future.

She also relinquished the Raw Women’s Championship, which she had held for over a year, to Money in the Bank winner Asuka.

Lynch has already hailed the Empress of Tomorrow as a huge inspiration to “working mums” to return to wrestling after giving birth.

And speaking to SunSport ahead of her Extreme Rules title defence on Sunday – with the help of SmackDown’s number one announcer Funaki as translator – Asuka put her former rival top of her list.

She told SunSport: “Well, she is a special opponent for me and once she comes back, I’d love to have a match with her.

“Actually, while she takes a break I’ll continue to build up experience through matches so I can’t wait to see what happens when we compete.”

Becky Lynch decide

Elsewhere on the conference call, Asuka admitted that her crowning moment as champion came as a total shock to her as much as it did for fans.

She added: “It was a total suprise, a huge surprise.

“It really was so special and I’m so happy. Happy I won the title happy for Becky. It was a great moment that I felt lucky to share.”

Asuka – real name Kanako Urai – became the second Women’s Grand Slam winner after Bayley and third Women’s Triple Crown bearer.

The 38-year-old Japanese ace has already defended her new title against Nia Jax ahead of her clash with Sasha Banks at Extreme Rules.

Lynch meanwhile is expecting her child in December which looks likely to rule her out for at least the majority of 2021.
