If all goes to plan for WWE, Ronda Rousey will be the one that ends Asuka's undefeated streak sometime later this year.
Asuka made her debut for WWE all the way back in October 2015, when she first competed in NXT. Since then, The Empress of Tomorrow has not lost one single match. By the time WrestleMania 34 rolls around she will have gone almost two and a half years unbeaten, so a pretty incredible streak.
Only the last few months of that has been on Raw. Asuka relinquished the NXT Women's Championship after beating everybody that there was to beat down at Full Sail and went looking for a new challenge. So far, she has been just as dominant on the main roster as she was in NXT with wins over Sasha Banks, Bayley, Alexa Bliss, and above all else her Royal Rumble victory.
So the question remains, who will be the lucky lady that gets to be the first to defeat The Empress in WWE? Well, according to Dave Meltzer of The Wrestling Observer the plan at the moment is for that honor to befall Ronda Rousey. Apparently though, it won't be one of the super matches we get to see at WrestleMania 34 and as of right now is penciled in to happen later this year.
If those plans are true and end up coming to fruition, there will be some ladies backstage at WWE that won't be too pleased. Superstars such as Nia Jax and Nikki Bella took great umbrage at Rousey taking a lot of the attention away from the first-ever women's Royal Rumble match. Hopefully, by the time she goes up against Asuka, The Rowdy One will have earned a little more respect from the women she is about to be sharing a locker room with.
Asuka's undefeated streak is unlike anything we have ever seen in the modern era of professional wrestling, and we will likely never see anyone go unbeaten for this long ever again. By letting her go this long without losing, WWE has created something very special and given them the opportunity to create an unforgettable moment when that streak does end up coming to an end.
