Triple H Shoots Down Asuka – NXT Takeover Rumors

As noted, there were rumors that WWE initially wanted women other than Mickie James, possibly Trish Stratus, to face Asuka for the NXT Women’s Title at Takeover Toronto, but Trish was unable to compete at the event.

During today’s NXT Takeover media call, Triple H shot down rumors that WWE did not initially want Mickie James. Triple H says rumors of other people attempted to get for match vs Asuka—says not true. He wanted Mickie James since the beginning.
