Asuka On Changing Women’s Wrestling In WWE, Making History With Her Win Streak, More

WWE’s undefeated NXT women’s champion Asuka speaks to Newsweek for a profile piece about coming up to 500 days as champion and breaking Goldberg’s undefeated streak.

Below are some interview highlights:

On making history:
“When I decided to sign a contract with WWE, I decided two things,” Asuka tells Newsweek, speaking through a translator. “I was determined not only to win, but to leave [breaking] records. That is something I feel like I can do as a return to WWE [for hiring me].”
On joining WWE and changing women’s wrestling in the company:
“I wanted to change women’s wrestling in WWE. In wrestling, men and women do the same thing, but sometimes the men look more powerful and more impressive. I am trying my best to fill the gap between men and women,” says Asuka.
On adjusting to life in America:
“It was my first time living in the U.S., but they were so supportive,” she says. “The language was a big wall for me…I’m still struggling. Driving is an issue. When I was in Japan, I didn’t have to drive all the time, but here in Florida, you have to drive all the time. But American people are very friendly, cheerful and kind to me. So I’m really thankful to the American people.”
