Backstage News on Why Asuka Is Going to the WWE RAW Brand
By Marc Middleton

As noted, WWE confirmed on last night's RAW that former WWE NXT Women's Champion Asuka will be debuting with the red brand soon.

It was noted on Wrestling Observer Radio that officials went back & forth on which brand she would be sent to. The feeling was that the depth on RAW is not as strong as on SmackDown and that Asuka will be better off on RAW.

It's believed that The Empress of Tomorrow will debut some time in October after she recovers from the right collarbone injury. A WWE Network Collection on Asuka is scheduled to kick off the month of October.
