But even more striking is the second return commented by Fightful Select. The news portal assures that Asuka could play an important role in the next episode of RAW. The Japanese-born superstar could star in a weeks-long feud with Becky Lynch, who will make her return to the cameras following her title loss at WrestleMania 38.
Asuka has been absent from WWE screens since July 2021. “The Empress” suffered an arm injury during Money in the Bank that left her disabled for several months. Following her successful recovery, the company opted not to reinstate her immediately in order to wait for a better creative outlook.
Fightful Select has learned that WWE is planning for the return of Asuka, who has been out of action since last July.

As you might expect, there is always the possibility of a last minute change that prevents the aforementioned return.
