Big Bad Blog Video Theater-Asuka interview

This interview with Asuka from last night's episode of NXT is the first time the WWE has done an extended interview with her. I am posting it for those who don't have the WWE Network. So I guess the first question is how is her English? For one thing, she understands English just fine. FYI, HHH discovered early on she doesn't need a translator. But like Shinsuke Nakamura and Hideo Itami, she needs to speak English very slowly or they are going to need subtitles. So she knows what she is saying but she needs to say it slowly to be understandable. The WWE had Futami do an interview with her in Dallas in April. But they never used any of it probably because she spoke too quickly. The questions Tom Phillips asked her were fairly obvious. I just thought she did well considering she never had to speak English until now. Mostly they talked about her cleaning out the NXT women's division. BTW, she never faced Carmella or Alexa Bliss on TV. She did face Alexa at house shows. I expect Asuka to remain at NXT to anchor the division. Possible title contenders include Ember Moon, formerly known as Athena. Her real name is Adrienne Reese. She trained with Booker T in Houston. She wrestled on last night's show. She's a pretty good athlete but I don't like her finisher as it depends too much on the opponent getting into the right position for too long. It's also easy to mess up. The video for Sanity is for the wrestler currently known as Crazy Mary Dobson. She will come to NXT as soon as she finishes her current dates. And there are a few others. Of course Asuka doesn't think she can be beaten. Neither do I but one never knows. Enjoy the video.
