Vince McMahon wants Asuka to be Women Division’s top star in Becky Lynch’s absence. The Man has taken time off WWE to give birth to her first child.
The WWE Women’s division has been built around Becky Lynch for some time. The man has done admirably well carrying the division on her shoulders. However, an unexpected pregnancy has seen her vacating her Raw Women’s Championship.
She handed the title to Asuka before announcing her departure. At the time, many thought Asuka would be pushed with a rocket strap. Instead however, it looks as if Vince McMahon has lost interest in her once again. Just two wins since winning the title is a far cry from what a dominant champion looks like.
This is even more worrying in the absence of Paul Heyman; who made sure that certain wrestlers weren’t overlooked by management. However, it seems that there is nothing to worry about and the WWE are still very high on the current RAW Women’s Champion.

According to Wrestletalk, the WWE have big plans for Asuka. It was reported back in April that WWE had big plans for Asuka, and that they were impressed with her work and reliability. That has not changed.
WWE higher ups including Vince himself, see value in her as a top player in the women’s division, especially in the absence of Becky Lynch.
One of the major reasons for the double count out finish at Backlash between Asuka and Nia Jax was done more to protect Nia Jax’s character than anything else, while at the same time protecting Asuka from suffering a loss.
