If it wasn’t clear final week, Becky Lynch left little question: She needs Asuka. And he or she’s prepared to go and do no matter it takes to gather her final remaining debt in opposition to The Empress of Tomorrow — the one lady, she stated, to defeat The Man straight-up.
Asuka got here to the ramp to mock The Man for her loss in Japanese, although her last English phrases — “Asuka Two Belts” — made it clear she would give Lynch her match for a worth. Becky’s response was to call the time and place, and in case Asuka didn’t perceive, she repeated it in Japanese. The problem has been made. The problem has been accepted. And whereas it’s trying like a matter of when the match occurs, the matter of The Man settling her final debt continues to be very a lot an if.
