Asuka is a genius. If you don't believe it, just ask her!
"The Empress of Tomorrow" appeared as a guest on this week's edition of "WWE's The Bump" just two days after she became the new RAW Women's Champion after Becky Lynch vacated the title following her pregnancy announcement on Monday Night RAW.
The winner of the 2020 Women's Money In The Bank match spoke about her victory in the "Climb the Corporate Ladder" match held at WWE Headquarters in Stamford, Connecticut at this year's WWE Money In The Bank pay-per-view.
The new queen of the RAW women's division recalled her memorable balcony dive during the match, one of the biggest highlights to come out of the entire PPV, as well as what was going through her head just moments after winning the match.
"I was so determined," Asuka started, when reflecting back on the match during her appearance on the weekly WWE digital series. "I danced on the balcony, and made the others wonder what I was doing, and right at that moment, I made a dive."
Asuka continued, "Then, I saw Shayna [Baszler] coming to get me, but right at that second, the elevator doors opened, and I made it inside," she said. "I'm a genius."
From there, she explained to the fans of "WWE's The Bump" what was going through her mind just moments after winning the match, as she was posing on top of the ladder with the Money In The Bank briefcase.
"I climbed up the ladder, then King Corbin came too, so I gave him a nice kick," Asuka said with a smile. "The briefcase was so heavy, I had a hard time even holding it."
She added, "But, I was so happy! The view I saw from the top of the ladder was fantastic. I am going to remember that view."
As noted, WWE is hyping that Asuka will kick off "a new era" on RAW this coming Monday night in a show that will also include the aforementioned SmackDown Superstar King Corbin coming over to the red brand show for a battle against WWE Champion Drew McIntyre.
Check out the complete Asuka interview, as well as an appearance by the Men's MITB 2020 winner Otis, legendary former WWE broadcast team member Todd Pettengill, NXT World Champion Adam Cole and NXT General Manager William Regal on this week's episode of "WWE's The Bump" embedded below.
