Asuka Talks About Becky Lynch’s Pregnancy Announcement, Desire To Wrestle Kairi Sane

WWE Raw Women’s Champion Asuka recently spoke with Alex McCarthy of talkSport to discuss a wide range of topics. Here are the highlights:

Becky Lynch’s pregnancy announcement: “It was a total surprise, a huge surprise,” Asuka said, confirming reports that suggested she wasn’t privy to Lynch’s plans.”It really was so special and I’m so happy. Happy I won the title, happy for Becky. It was a great moment I felt lucky to share.”

Desire to wrestle Kairi Sane: “Kairi is very, very special to me. She brings out the best in me and I love being around her. When I am finished with Sasha, I want to face Kairi next! Kairi and I have never faced each other in WWE or in Japan or anywhere else, ever! So that match would be really special.”
