WWE Raw Women’s Champion Asuka has topped a new WWE 2020 list. She became the wrestler who has competed in most WWE matches in 2020. The Empress of Tomorrow participated in a total of 64 WWE matches in 2020.
Over the years, Asuka has proven to the WWE Universe that she is a reliable workhorse for the company. Her in-ring performances and consistency make her one of the most talented stars on the WWE roster.
But these numbers were largely affected by the Covid pandemic. WWE superstars usually participate in live events more than they are seen on WWE TV. In fact, in 2019, the then WWE Champion Kofi Kingston participated in a total of 140 matches! This is more than double of Asuka’s matches in 2020.
In 2020, WWE cancelled all their live events, owing to the pandemic outbreak. Their weekly TV shows aired from their Performance Center for a major part of the year. Since then, WWE has started airing their shows live from WWE’s Thunderdome. Fans can attend these shows virtually.
Asuka’s impressive WWE run in 2020
The Empress of Tomorrow not only participated a lot matches, but even managed to win most of them. In 2020, she has the second highest number of victories. The list is topped by the current WWE Champion Drew McIntyre.
McIntyre earned a total of 47 wins in 2020, while Asuka managed 36. The current Raw Women’s Champion also won the Money in the Bank ladder match this year. Due to this she became the Champion, as Becky Lynch announced her pregnancy and took a break from WWE.
Asuka has even joined forces with The Queen Charlotte Flair. They recently won the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championship at WWE TLC. They are currently feuding with Nia Jax and Shayna Baszler for the tag team titles. Asuka has not put the Raw Championship title on the line for quite some time now. But that may change at WWE’s Royal Rumble.
Royal Rumble airs live on 31st January, 2021.
