Asuka vs. Lynch On Hold? Reason Why Finish for Women's Tag Team Match Changed


— The finish of the match last week between Natalya & Charlotte Flair vs. Asuka & Kairi Sane was changing, according to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter. The original plan was for Asuka to get a pinfall victory over Natalya as a way to push Asuka towards an eventual match against Becky Lynch. It appears that direction may have changed though the reasons for it are unclear. The change in the Raw finish though had more to do with Natalya “shining so big” after her Crown Jewel match and the associated mainstream media she received that internally it was felt it would be wrong to have her lose in her first TV match back in North America.
