A lot of times slow builds like the one she is on tend to either fizzle out or get hotshotted from 2nd gear to 6th with a shot of nitrous. As it is Asuka is now in 3rd gear and still ramping up steadily.

I don't mind slow build, it's the time spent being around jobbers that is annoying.

Even though they are babyfaces she should be fueding one on one with the likes of Bayley and Sasha.

Instead she's being rushed to Paige when that shouldn't be happening until Summerslam if done right.

I don't know that she is being rushed to Paige. Asuka isn't baby or heel yet as she hasn't yet been established as either. Like with Braun Strowman, they're taking their time with her to gauge fan reaction first. Fans crapped on Strowman early for being a Vince McMahon guy just like Roman, difference is Strowman made Mr. No Chin Music famous and Roman hasn't done that for anyone yet. People love Strowman now. With Asuka it is still too early to tell, but she seems to be leaning baby with the fans.

fans are definitely behind her, but the problem is that Absolution, or more specifically, Paige, also have the fans behind them.

the build certainly seems to be leading to Paige and Asuka earlier than Summer Slam, but since at the earliest, Paige would be challenging Bliss at the Rumble, though more likely Mania if WWE don't blow their load, it still gives time for Piage and Asuka to interact during the tailend of the a feud between Bliss and Paige.

Quote We're told Alicia Fox will be getting another shot at Asuka tonight, and that's up next.

- Asuka vs. Alicia Fox - No Contest: As Asuka is waiting in the ring for her opponent to come out, instead she is greeted by Absolution again. The three women come out to ringside and Paige is on the mic. Paige warms Asuka and says she either gets out of the way, or they're going to move her. They surround her on the ring aprons. They eventually step in the ring and start beating down Asuka. Asuka puts up a good fight, but she's outnumbered, and Absolution gets the better of her. The RAW Women's locker room starts clearing out from backstage and heading to the ring to back up Asuka. Sasha, Bayley, Dana, Nia, Fox, Alexa, and Mickie all come out and start brawling with Absolution. Nia Jax steps in the ring and hits a big boot on Rose, then Paige and Sonya pull Rose out to safety at ringside. Absolution retreats up the ramp as the rest of the RAW women look on from the ring with smiles on their faces.

What a crap segment. What reason does the babyface roster have to want to protect Asuka?
 
She's suppose to be the woman who can't be beaten and so wouldn't it be better to help eliminate her from the roster?
 
She's the main competition to everyone for a title shot, so to look after her against others doesn't make sense.

They are not there to save her. They were there to get revenge on Absolution.

Other than that, yeah, I didn't care for that segment. However I think it still needed to happen to continue the story.

So to save yourself a job let them batter Asuka and THEN come out and get your revenge on Absolution.

The wrestler mentality should be this woman is unbeaten and the main rival to me getting my hands on the womens title and so I hope she gets laid out.

Or when everyone ran off Absolution someone could have made a name for themselves by taking Asuka out as if to make a statement and show she wasn't saved from a beating for her benefit, but because that person wanted to be the one to take her out.

Now that Asuka has entered the Royal Rumble, I DON'T want her to win it because I want her to win the RAW Women's Championship inside the Elimination Chamber. If Asuka DOES win the Royal Rumble, then Paige should win the title in the Elimination Chamber.
It's over. It's ALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL over!

Quote Nia Jax, Alicia Fox, Mandy Rose, Sonya Deville vs. Asuka, Bayley, Mickie James & Sasha Banks: The heels beat down the faces before the bell. The dust settles and the ref calls for the opening bell. Asuka starts off in control against Sonjya and repeatedly kicks her. Sonya tags in Asuka hits a knee to the face. Asuka knocks the other heels off the apron, then hits another knee on Sonya. Sasha tags in and they double suplex Sonya. Nia tags in now and goes at it with Sasha. Nia beats Sasha down into the corner, and the heels take control. Alicia tags in and continues the beat down on Sasha. Sasha starts to fight back, but Sonya hits a cheap shot. This leads to an all-our brawl breaking out at ringside, while Sasha and Alicia fight in the ring. Fox misses a big boot, and Sasha follows up with a backstabber and the Banks Statement for the win.

Winners: Asuka, Bayley, Mickie James & Sasha Banks

Shock horror but I liked her on Raw. Loved the bit of attitude to turn on her team mates.
 
I know it's just because the Royal Rumble is on sunday, but I would like it to be a regular occurance.
 
Give her the attitude of i'm only teaming with you because I want to win the match, but I aren't your mate and after we win watch your back.

Asuka won the Women's Royal Rumble last night, so my plan of having her win the RAW Women's Championship at Elimination Chamber has been dashed.
It's over. It's ALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL over!

That match tonight between Asuka and Sasha Banks was pretty damned good. That kick to the head while Sasha was doing her suicide dive looked like it literally killed Sasha. I swear that woman is going to have a career shorter than Paige's if she keeps bumping like that.

But then what happens? Asuka throws her in the ring and just beats the shit out of her. The knee to the face the punches and kicks all to the head. Would have sworn that was it, but Sasha fought back and the match just got better and better. Asuka's bump outside looked bad too. Wish like crazy that match had 5 to 10 more minutes because it could have been up there with the very best matches from either.

Regardless the last half of that match was incredible.

EDIT: I want a gif of that kick and bump outside the ring... That's one for the highlight reels.
