Not many WWE fans might be aware of the 1.6m tall female Japanese pro-wrestling sensation, known as Asuka; real pro-wrestling aficionados, however, are . Asuka, 35, is already regarded as the greatest female pro wrestlers, ever.
She has just beaten the greatest pro wrestling streak of 173 wins, recorded by the WWE veteran Goldberg, back in his WCW days. Even the legendary Undertaker, who has one of the greatest winning streaks in the WrestleMania, comes nowhere to Asuka's unbelievable 177 wins in the WWE, lately.
Strange part is she is yet to debut in the WWE main roster. Asuka has earned her jawdropping winning streak only via NXT and WWE live events. However, we feel that once she loses her NXT women's championship, she will make her BIG debut on either Raw or SmackDown.
But....taking the title from her right now, looks simply impossible!
Several pro wrestling critics have even called her one of the greatest in the sports entertainment business, both male and female wrestlers combined.
